Wait a sec - same album art ?!?

So yeah I had a bit of a déjà vu when Universal Hippies - Evolution of Karma came into my youtube suggestions - haven't I seen that album art before? And yeah it was waiting for me on my to-listen list, Castle Zagyx - Traveller seems to be using the same source picture. They do differ a slight bit tho, to accommodate for different aspect ratio. Here's where it gets interesting: Universal Hippies - Evolution of Karma was released in March 2018 but Castle Zagyx - Traveller was only released in January 2019. Yet on the other hand, the latter is the one that seems to be the original version. If you look closely, the figures at the sides of Evolution of Karma cover seem to be copypasted from the one on the bottom, and a coiled detail at the edge of that window above the one on the left seems to be airbrushed out incompletely. Compare with the one with Traveller which just has geometric designs on the side which do not feature anywhere else, which is why I believe that's the original image. Castle Zagyx credits "J. Arkham" for the album art, Universal Hippies credit "::NYXIAN:DRIFT::" What do you think? High resolution images you can find at respective bandcamp pages, which you may peruse at your leisure: https://castlezagyx.bandcamp.com/album/traveller https://universalhippies.bandcamp.com/album/evolution-of-karma
