In the comparison above, I prefer the one on the left. I feel the one on the right is too dark and dull. This might be another personal preference situation, but I'm not seeing the problem with the left option. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shrug.gif)


I don't see any problems with it as well!
I totally understand your intention and when you prefer the brighter version keep it as it is. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)
It's only a small detail and only my opinion. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Taglines look much better now Kernie (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) Also I think the brighter version for Guardians as it makes it pop more plus like you said will be in keeping with the second film.

Personally, I want a more bright, vibrant cover because I'm looking ahead to Guardians: Vol. 2, which has really colorful promo art and I want both of my covers to match. Compared to Vol. 2, Guardians Vol. 1 used a darker palette in its posters and promo material, so I'm purposely trying to boost things a bit to bring the Vol. 1 art more in line with what's being put out for Vol. 2.

In the comparison above, I prefer the one on the left. I feel the one on the right is too dark and dull. This might be another personal preference situation, but I'm not seeing the problem with the left option. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shrug.gif)


I prefer the one on the left as well and taken with your explanation the reason makes perfect sense.

Falcons wing works good IMHO as you have it now.

Overall these look fantastic, I'm quite excited to see the rest of the cover evolve now (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

EDIT: I just realized that with my new laptop and Photoshop CC, I had never properly set up my Jpeg Save for Web settings, which is why some earlier previews in this thread may have appeared more saturated than normal. I've turned off Color Management and turned on Embed Color Profile, so hopefully now you guys will be seeing the colors, brightness, and saturation that I'm seeing in PS. Sorry for the confusion!

Maybe there's an other image of Starlord you can use for the back? His pose atm is very similar to the front.

And maybe adjust the colour of his lips on the front? Right now it's looking like he has used a pink lipstick to me. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Adjusted the color of Star-Lord's lips. You'll see it in the next preview.

I actually kind of like that the front and back poses are similar, but clearly not the same exact image. This is the only other pose I can find that has Star-Lord actually doing something, besides just standing around (there are a few promo illustrations out there, but they don't match the photo-realistic quality of the other images). Since all the other characters in the back arrangement are simply standing there, I wanted the character in the front to have more of an "action" pose. Plus, firing the blaster allows me to bring some of the green/cyan from the front to the back layout.

If other people agree that I should look for a different image, I'll look into changing it. But I also spent a lot of yesterday working on that specific image to get it to match the coloring of the front Star-Lord, so I'm reluctant to discard most of yesterday's work.

How about adding the mask to him so it's a little different?

I was thinking about that... I'll give it a shot and see how it looks.

- Added Star Lord's mask to back.
- Added Rocket to back grouping.
- Reduced brightness on Star-Lord on front as per weyn's suggestion. Unfortunately, I can only reduce the brightness so much due to the overexposure on the source image in that area.

Thanks for the help! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Ah, he stopped using his lipstick. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

That's looking great and the mask on his face on the back is great change to get it more different to the front image.
What about a little bit more brown on Groot?
