50 Cent Spec Album Art
Spec Album Artwork - 50 CENT
I had this @50cent album art idea after I first heard The Kanan Tape.  Around that same time, I was listening to the audiobook of The 50th Law and I gained even more respect for the famed rapper. I identify a lot with his ambitious and entrepreneurial nature and had a strong vision for this artwork which I don't normally have when starting a project.

Overall, I wanted to create this spec album art for my portfolio, to practice some 3D work, and as a thank you to 50 for the inspiration, motivation, and entertainment through his tracks over the years. I infused themes into this design that initially made 50 into a rap icon. Crack cocaine. 9 shell casings from when he was shot. 🗽5️⃣0️⃣🗽
I first had to trace 50's official logo in Illustrator (two versions)
Early concept of cocaine on a black glass table with newspaper clippings underneath
Early test of Voronoi fracture surrounding the logo
Preview of the final Voronoi fracture object applied to 50's logo in Cinema4D
Two options were tested, one with cool tones and another with more warm neutral tones
Below is a quick timelapse BTS video showing my process
Final rendering and Photoshop polish
