Ok, here is my problem. My nephew came over to watch my house this past weekend while I was out of town. He watched my brand new copy of Olympus Has Fallen and left the case on the floor. Yes, you guessed correct, my dog thought it was a chew toy and destroyed the case and most importantly the artwork. Thankfully he left the disc in the player. I can easily replace the case, but the artwork
So, would someone be willing to scan their artwork at a very good resolution, and e-mail me with the file so that I can print it. It would be greatly appreciated. No need for custom artwork, but that would also be appreciated if that's my only choice.
PLEASE PM ME SO THAT I CAN SEND YOU MY E-MAIL ADDRESS. Thanks
Where does everyone find the high resolution pictures they use for these covers? I want to make some custom movie art but when I do Google searches for images all I get are 72 dpi pictures that are rarely larger than 500 pixels. Is there a process in Photoshop I may not know about that enlarges images without distortion?
... and a WIP for Chucky - The Complete Collection.
Actually inspired by the U.K. cover art, the client opted for the Grindhouse look which sets it apart from the U.S. retail covers. I rarely display WIP pieces. This is mostly locked, just awaiting final specs once the discs are released.
Hello - I'm looking for cover art for the British Coen Bros. Collection - specifically BARTON FINK, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, and INTOLERABLE CRUELTY. I store on my blu-rays in sleeves due to space limitations of my furniture. Won't be able to store this box. Haven't had much success searching online for these three films. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Sometimes I'm asked to replicate specific covers for sentimental reasons. A client asked me to do these for Batman and Robocop, all of them based on the old UK VHS covers.
Recreating old designs can be both fun and challenging as I have to find or recreate old logos and branding that never existed digitally. With these covers the client wanted to emphasise sentimental value over both consistency and accuracy. While I recreated some of these VHSes exactly, he wanted some of the elements removed for a cleaner look.
As far as possible I try to get the exact same images for the photos on the backs, but for older films some of them plain don't exist on the 'net. That's when my extensive clipping files come in handy and I more often than not can find that particular image and scan it myself.
Often the main headache is that of obtaining good reference for the old VHS covers. If I can find a cover online, most of the time it is too small for the text to be legible. I spend a lot of time trying to decipher text from the miniscule images. Recreating the text also requires me to do some detective work on fonts, but most of the time the old pre-DTP covers were done in easily available fonts. I've had to resort to vaguely similar alternatives from time to time, but that's not for lack of trying. :-)
I'm including the original VHS covers here for comparison.
Here's a recent one I did for Oliver! (Sorry, not available to share at this time.)
The original Blu-ray cover was really atrocious. I am not hard to please when it comes to covers, but this was just "WTF were they thinking?" bad.
You know you wouldn't think old vhs covers would be all that great with todays Blu-ray's but I have to say these look spanky new and clean very nice.
And is it just me or does Robocop 2 look a little 3d pop outish?
very nice work once again.
