I was going to make something to enter this months cover challenge but then realized just how rusty I have become making covers after so long away so thought I'd turn to WIP for help instead... be kind hung up my tablet like 10 years-ish ago.

I like it a lot. A few minor details: some glow from the embers could be reflected on the TT? And I think the spine TT should face the other way. Other than that, keep going!

Thanks, JR - I'll play with the TT next 8834.gif you are so right about the spine, will spin it to see if it sits better - if not might remake it in a line.

I'm not overly keen on the sketch effect in the background and the effect on Bruce, other than that great start!

Thanks, Sauron, I was dabbling with some of the fashionable painted effects I see around, but clearly need some practice - anyone recommend a tut on that?

This look better? - will get to the title treatments later...

What a pleasant surprise, I like the latest version best, but i feel like the car and helicopter in the background takes some of the focus away from Bruce, maybe reduce the opacity a little or darken it to make Bruce pop a little more?

I think it looks better now and I'm very interested to see what you have planed for the back.

Quite a lot - highlights are:-

Stopped doing any kind of design after I left here in a childish tantrum 8834.gif
Moved house 4 times, finally settled in a place we love.
Kids all grown up, daughter got married this year - cost me a fortune - bank balance will never be the same again 8824.gif
Finally left my old company and joined a new one! The company got bought by private equity, now hate it.
Played a bucket load of PC games in my free time - got into Elite Dangerous in a big way, now Elite in all disciplines, own a fully kitted fleet of pretty much everything and more credits than I know what to do with wink.gif
Recently got into MTG: Arena since the first round of closed beta - kinda addicted. Used to play paper MTG back when it was a new thing.
Trying to get back into design after brushing off Cinema 4D to design a bench I was building for my workshop.
Installed new Adobe CC 2019 - still in shock and trying to find out what everything does, ditto for Illustrator, InDesign and whatever the f*ck Muse is 8824.gif

Looks better now without the effects 8834.gif The new TT looks much better now - how about putting 'Bruce Willis' a just above the TT and at the same angle?

Also I wouldn't bother with Muse, it's a website builder but Adobe are no longer doing any updates to it.

That's quite a lot I guess, nice to see you back designing tho 8834.gif. I agree with sauron, would be interesting to see how it would look. Also, what about moving the "critic" more to the middle, right next to Bruce?
