    Interested if anyone has designed new art. Still hoping someone will bite the bullet and create a Dances With Wolves DTS cover (for single space/double disc case) to replace the dual snappers. Others?

    I have a several in the works, including a "Matrix" cover that includes the first disc and "Revisited". I'm almost ready to offer it up for opinions from fellow HTF's.
    Hopefully this weekend, BBQ's permitting. [​IMG]

    I'm working on covers for THE COTTON CLUB and the upcoming RUNNING SCARED disc which make use of the original poster art.
    Some others I'm working on:
    4-disc FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON set (almost done)
    STANLEY KUBRICK COLLECTION (almost done)
    JUDGE DREDD
    Now I just have to convince someone to post them... [​IMG]

    Kenneth - Where did you get a good scan of the "Running Scared" poster? That would look fantastic, especially with the original tag line. [​IMG]
    Other covers I'm working on...
    Batman (Burton-Schumacher films - just getting started)
    Coma (half done)
    Coma - alternate version (only sketches are finished)
    Evangelion (set including the upcoming movies - sketches)
    Lain (sketches)

    (Edited because I originally asked a different question that had been already answered. Note to self; new glasses.)

    Well, I've been messing with this, but so far it sucks, and Webshots pixelation isn't helping matters! [​IMG]

    Is anyone going to make a "Bill & Ted's Excellent
    Adventure" replacement cover? (DVD due out in December)
    It's now looking like MGM has ditched the original
    poster art. [​IMG]

    Ghostbusters cover is great, but the centering on the front text needs a little work. Might work better if the front and back flowed together better, kinda abrupt how it goes black then to color, otherwise great stuff

    A question to fellow customizers; What is the font used to write out the disclaimers and legal mumbo-jumbo at the bottom of WB titles (on the back)? Or does anybody know a font that's a close match?
    Thanks in advance!

    I just finished up back and front covers for the DVD that comes in the SRV boxed set (3 CDs + 1 DVD.) I put my DVD in a alpha case amongst my other DVDs. Here are low res pics of what they look like. Nothing too great but the front cover looks snazzy when you print it out.

    I did these in Paint Shop Pro, so if you're interested in the high(er) res originals, please e-mail me and I'll hook you up. [​IMG]

    Nice work on those covers. Still no takers on the Dances With Wolves DTS replacement unfortunately. I'll have to keep me fingers crossed.

    Jay,
    I may be willing to do the Dances cover for you, if you could supply some hi-res scans of the original.

    I have a few updated covers over at www.realitycrash.com/dvdcovers.htm under gallery #4. I also have a Total Recall SE cover in the works (just need to get my hands on a copy)

    Sorry. Had a comment about Willow but wasn't aware of the separate thread.
