Are all these covers the exact same size as the one that comes with the disc? I would print to find out for myself but my printer is broken and have not had time to run and buy another.

Samsung UN55F7100
PS3 60GB
Blu-ray : 86
Xbox 360

They should be, open them and view a print preview to make sure they are on one page and the proper size

By the way, what resolution do you guys who make covers scan at? 200 DPI, 600 DPI, more?

I would imagine that you should scan at the highest resolution possible.

Um, yea, let's go ahead and put The Fountain on my list of Blu-rays that are going to NEEEEEEEED a custom cover. This and Children of Men on HD-DVD are absolutely horrendous.

The poster art with the tree inside the bubble in space would've been awesome and very simple, instead of the studio paying some idiot to do a quick photoshop job.

Please don't turn this thread into a request section for every new release. Those of us who put our time and effort into the covers do it because we love the said movie. It's unfair to ask for requests. If you enjoyed our work, a simple thank you would be nice, and look forward to what comes next.

I don't think I ever said thank you for making these, so to all of you that have made custom covers for us to use, thank you. I am planning on using many of your fine works of art.

Sorry if I came off as an unappreciative user making requests. I merely wanted to call attention to how terrible some studio art has been, and then, if you share my opinion on how much I care about these films, then perhaps you'd like to make a more appropriate cover. Believe me, I appreciate whats been made available thus far, and I think its amazing how you guys make these look so proffesional and interesting. I wish I was skilled enough to be able to make art that looks this good.

altek, not bad.

But I'd suggest a couple of revisions:

-drop the "Daniel Craig and Eva Green" from the cover. I just don't think it needs it, and in my opinion it takes away somewhat from the coolness of the cover art picture.

-get rid of the orange from the "seven gun" (along with the added gunflash and ?bullet?) and change it back to the original movie poster white (with no flash and ?bullet?)

-lose the 007 above the title and use the 7 under the two "O's" like the movie posters and original BD cover

-on the back, the movie is 2.40:1 aspect ratio, but you have 1.85:1. so that needs to be changed

-also, you may want to take another shot at the movie description. The "takes on a corrupt casino owner with ties to terrorists" isn't entirely accurate. I don't think Le Chiff was a casino owner. I'd just go with what is on the original BD case.

Just my suggestions.

I'd also back out the photo. The coolest aspect of the teaser poster is missing with Craig placing the gun on the table like a poker chip.

Otherwise good job.

Here is a simple layout for my bond cover. I have one with a flame back drop but I think the simple black looks cleaner.




I also have one more Bond cover based off of this poster...

I don't wanna step on Evans shoes since he's been working on this but I completed a Bond cover last night. It has everything Evangelo's cover has minus the black backdrop that surrounds the pic. Assuming that he scanned the back cover like I did.

The black backdrop works but I would like to see as much of that image as possible. This was tricky since I had to work with two different posters and cut pieces from one and match it to the other. I couldn't find a freaking good quality pic that had the whole image (his whole arm like alteks cover.)

I'll show you when I get home.

Thats cool DeathStalker. Send it over.
I had to use the backdrop and dither the original poster because the dimmensions of the original movie poster were wrong for my to crop properly for this cover and get the gun in. Send it on over to me and I will put it online.

Cool, well I'm still anxious to see yours. So when you're done post it.

Here's what I did to mine. The image below is what I used to make the whole image. Originally I only had the movie poster image which is pic two down below. To make it fit the blu ray dimensions resulted in the cool parts of the poster being buried (the gun) The sides and top were cut from the 1st pic and added to the 2nd.


And here is the final result

what are the exact dimensions of the cover ? Also, where do you guys get the back covers from (to create these) ? Do you scan your own ?

Would there be a way to combine the two casino royale ones so far? I love evangelo's front part of the cover but I also love altek's back part.

Does anyone have any covers for the original Terminator? I think that the retail one could be improved, but I wouldn't know where to begin with Photoshop (I tried, but failed miserably )

I second that. I would also love to see one for Speed. The 5 Star DVD cover they reused for the Blu Ray cut always sucked.
