Can't believe I haven't seen this thread before!

I've been putting together my own covers for a little while, just for fun. Sorry to be a dunderhead, but how does one upload pics to this thread without them appearing as attachments?

Here's one I've done for the forthcoming Mill Creek release of Deep Rising after a month of semi-retirement from cover making.

This has to be the least subtle cover I've ever done. The movie just seems to call for a border-line cheesy approach. I went all out for the front: Big explosion, high-contrast, sparks flying, slanted poster and riveted title treatment.

I even threw my usual spoiler-caution to the wind and included some of the biggest money-shots on the back. This is a bonafide tongue-in-cheek monster flick and I think this cover milks that aspect to the max. So much fun to do!

A Bold, busy and brash cover all the way, like the film itself.

That's one Hell of a kick-ass cover, but you do know that Deep Rising is sharing a BD-50 disc with The Puppet Masters, right?

Indeed I do, but I still wanted to make a standalone cover for Deep Rising and have seen people requesting one. This is for those who wish to pretend Puppet Masters isn't on there. I considered listing the other movie as an "extra". :-)

Hi guys.

Look what I came across today; my handmade custom VHS cover for Cobra.
cobravhscustomcover.png
Gather 'round, children, and let grandpa Nissen tell you about the days before DTP and Photoshop. This was literally cut and paste.

The year was 1986 (I was 14), and I had just gotten hold of a camcorded bootleg of Stallone's most recent masterpiece. Naturally I wanted to make a faux cover for it.

I made this from adverts and articles cut out of magazines. I didn't have any black paper so I used a marker for the background. I cut out a frame in the paper so the Cobra poster would have a nice border. Lots of logos in the Warner catalogs of the day also came in handy. Even then I thought the BBFC certificate gave it an air of authenticity :-)

The tagline on the front and the text on the back were added with my trusty Canon electric typewriter. It wasn't supposed to come out so crooked, but the paper slipped, I remember. I had glued the images on before cramming the thing into the typewriter. Bad idea. I think I actually wrote that synopsis myself, bad punctuation and all. (Hey, English is my second language.)

God knows where I got the Warner "hologram" sticker, but probably from a rental tape. I think I got the actual Warner case by switching out a generic case I had with a rental tape also. I had (have) no shame.

Anyway, I think this was the last custom cover I did until I started doing the Blu-ray covers last year. A gap of 25 years. Wonder what I would have done if I had Photoshop back then? I would probably have made a lot more customs, to be sure.

Here's the insert.

Took the afternoon to finish one of my many WIPs clogging up my WIP folder.

Jurassic Park Trilogy
featuring J.C. Richard's poster for Mondo.

Sources for the poster are somewhat limited, but I managed to upscale it with few artifacts. I've mentioned it before, but artwork is very forgiving when upscaled.

I'm most proud of finding screenshots for the back that matched the colour scheme of the poster. I sweat the details!

This was begun as a commission where the client didn't follow through. That certain gentleman may not PM me about this, but everyone else feel free.

Here's another one that I had started last year but never finished. I'm doing some spring (fall) cleaning in my WIP folder :-)

The Phantom (1996)

That's three for three from the 90's pulp hero films, as I've already done The Shadow and The Rocketeer. Did I miss any?

is "The Shadow" available on blu-ray yet?

Are you talking about the cover art or the Bluray itself?

AFAIK, "The Shadow" has only been released in Germany on Bluray so far and unfortunately it has the usual huge rating logo defacing the front cover.

No. It should be coming in the near future but it probably won't be anything great as far as Blu-Ray goes unless they have a newish HD master.

It's also one of the worst BDs I've ever seen.

The technical quality of the film in general is pretty poor because it was low-budget and is more or less an 80's movie as far as the technology used goes. The BR was probably sourced from the DVD/LD/HD master which is also the only known digital master of the film.

And as per Universal's usual MO,(who no doubt supplied the transfer), slap some DNR and copious amounts of EE on it and you're good to go.
post #5447 of 5804
Too bad. I really like the movie and have stuck with my LD since they never released it on DVD in widescreen.

They did in the UK and at least the US dvd and DTS dvd were open matte

As several people have inquired about my cover for The Shadow, I'm showing it here.

This was one of my earliest customs, and not at all how I'd do it today. The specs are for the German Blu-ray release (Region B locked)

For those who don't like the idea of sliding those discs in and out of the book's sleeves (22mm & 15mm spines):

Hello Maxwell, is it possible for me to borrow your .psd file? I love what you've done with the cover but I'd like to delete "the complete adventures" and "first time ever......" and changevthat line with the Indiana Jones logo.

In 1994, when the Shadow was released, a $40 million budget wasn't close to low budget. The average that year was around $50 million (most of the summer movies were $40-$60 million). The only exception was True Lies at $115 million, but Cameron budgets since T2 have always been far bigger than others.

Now, Pulp Fiction, at $8.5 million was low budget. Ace Ventura was only $12 million.

I thought that kind of gave him a artsy look and I like it... I've been asked to give Mad Max 2 the same treatment so I just need to find a suitable image for the front now...

Any chance you might branch out into custom disc labels for this one? This set could certainly use it more than most.

Cool!! Can't wait!!
