This cover was created for the Remix an Album Cover remix assignment. This image is a parody of the Gorillaz Demon Days album cover which features all four of the Gorillaz members on a white background facing the same direction. Instead of Murdoc, 2D, Noodle and Russel, I replaced them with Light, L, Misa, and Ryuk from the anime called Death Note. I changed the title of the album from “Demon Days” to “The New World” because in the show, Light and Misa are trying their hardest to create a perfect world free of crime by bringing the criminals to a deadly justice. (Seriously, I love this show!)

I made this album cover in GIMP by taking the original Gorillaz cover and erasing the text and characters. After that I went through a bunch of Death Note clips to find the 4 main characters with a side view, to make it match the original album as much as possible. This was what took me so long because they were always facing the camera straight on in the shot. I fuzzy erased the backgrounds they were in and pasted them in their respective white squares. Hm, I would love to see these 4 in a band, too bad they couldn’t work together since they’d be fighting all the time.
