I wanted a cover set that used the too cool original poster art for all three films, as well as kept the proper title for Raiders. hope to have the rest completed this week. Here's a preview of Raiders though..

the brown text on the back looks like it might be hard to read, but I promise it looks just fine when printed out at full res.

any feedback is of course welcomed =)

Matt, looks great...as usual! Any chance of making one for RAIDERS that uses the original art? The one for the dvd is actually the style B/re-release artwork. The original art has never been used for any domestic video release. Here's a link for the original art:

Holy crap! That's beautiful! Why didn't Paramount make soemthing along these lines to begin with? I hate the way they used SOME of the poster artwork, but mainly just Big Heads and little background. I'll download them and print them as soon as you make them available! Love 'em!

Matt, it would be no problem doing a cover with that poster art, the problem is finding a high quality source. I've been unable to find anything on the web, so for the cover above I actually scanned my old laserdisc jacket and did a bit of cleanup on it.

The original LP release of the films soundtrack used the original poster art. Matt, do you plan on making cover art for the Best Buy bonus disc? Also Temple of Doom also had another poster made which showed Indy standing outside the temple with a sword and the whip. It was a great poster. If possible maybe you could do a series and then we could pick and choose the artwork. This one looks very nice. Good job! Neil

nice job Matt. looking close, it seems to be a faint image of a map on the back of the jacket. i think that would be a great idea for a back cover background- a low contrast, old style, map of the region. i also planned to make my own jacket and have several high quality sources for the original 81 style artwork. just needed the upc code and back cover specs to do it right. now if i can dig up an interesting map design, i'll be good to go. i don't know if realitycrash is still up and running but they've hosted some covers i've done in the past- i'll have to get in touch with them or find another site.

Neil, I'll make a cover for it if I get a chance and get a copy of it. I didn't get my set from BB so I didn't get a copy of it. I have a nice version of that TOD artwork and will definitely do a cover with it, in addition to the other poster art. Paul, there is a map of Egypt and the surronding area overlayed on the entire background. TOD will have one of India, and LC one of Europe. I'd love to get my hands on any hi-res poster art you have...drop me an email if you would please

Matt, i'm on a pretty crappy dial-up at the moment, so anything over 400k would be a problem, but i'll see what i can get for ya, drop me a pm wih your e-mail and i will send it out when i get a chance. assuming i can run across a map style i like, i will probably forego using any other textures over it. i probably still have some promo posters for TOD that were given out at the premiere party (the advance shot that has a med shot of Ford with a Machette with the tag line "trust him". that would make an interesting alternative cover to the typical (but nicely done) Drew S montage. i wish i could find my copy of the Lp of the film dialouge soundtrack. that had a very nice reproduction of the Italian one sheet art- very dark and moody with some beautiful blue tones (this would be Raiders). it was also used as the cover of the American Cinetographer issue dedicated to the film (which i unfortuantely sold off already). i also recently came across some nice Peak artwork done for Excalibur and hope to finally get those jackets done as well as an updating of the first Superman movie, with a much larger, higher res shot of the fabulous Peak art.

Your artwork looks much better. It's easier to read and less muddy.

Matt, thanks again for keeping your website up.

Looks like I'll be running off some prints on the company color laserjet after hours. Posted Image

Lovely work, Matt. Tell you what would be nice - a 'trilogy' cover for all the films plus bonus disc in dual-alpha size.
No longer here.

Pretty good Matt, but did you have to use the beige coloring from the Fullscreen version? Couldn't you use the reddish-brown Widescreen coloring to match the box? Posted Image

I like the beige much better - but I can easily do red as well
