Dawn of The Dead (2004) Custom Blu-ray & DVD Cover

I recently revisited a old cover, one of my very earliest works in fact back 2004 near 15 years ago now.

I pulled a preview out of the archives to share it here, although it cringes me to even look at it now days.



This was made based on the Japanese poster (on the left) which is still not available in text-less form and my cloning skills were quite inexperienced back then, hell all my Photoshop skills were limited lol but hey no one is born knowing this stuff.

FYI for me graphics is just a hobby I have no formal design training, I'm a Engineer/Programmer but I have always been fascinated by graphics plus I'm a huge fan of film so this hobby is kind of required study.

This is the updated DVD cover.





Understand the intent here was not to make a whole new cover but instead to simply update it some while keeping it more or less inline with the original idea.

While I was at it I did a BD conversion.




So there you have it, a little stroll down memory lane 8834.gif

Many of us started making covers back then too, and our covers were a lot worse than your early attempt wink.gif

Great work on bringing it up to date though.
