Hola Jenna, theres no tutorial that i used honeslty I just took a look around Deviantart saw something i liked and kinda figured it out myself, basically what you do either follow an image that you would want to use to outline for your Typography something that clearly represents what your talking about then go ahead and use the paths tool and type along those paths.

Hahaha!!!! Thank you for calling me creative! :hug: The colors are great. They look bold and the proportion of the color red is alright as well. :D
I've studied typography and currently am studying Graphic Design at university... the colors are good. The bottom text is a little bit of a problem... And... that's all.:)

However, I find the bold font you used for "Battle Studies...." too broad and confusing.... At first I couldn't make out what it says....

Pretty cool! I like where you are going with this. The only thing that bothers me the it font used for title on the bottom. Its a very hard to read font because the negative spaces that define it are sooooooooo tiny or non-exsistent. The "U" in "Studies" doesn't even look like a "U". Pretend you didn't know this song or album ever existed and took a glance at this poster on the wall somewhere. Try a different but similar font or modify the letters that are harder to read just a little bit.

Cool cool! Go for legibility... there are lots of pretty, sleek and cool fonts out there... but some letters in them are hard to read especially when densely put together. Best way to test is on a paragraph.
