Hey all!

I really like what kernie did by creating a thread just for his Comic Collection Showcase. So, I decided it might work better for me if I just have one showcase for my covers, and each new finished cover would go into this thread. That way those who want to follow, can easily.

My Collection from oldest to newest:








My Academy Award Best Picture Winners Collection:





My Academy Award Best Picture Nominees Collection:



Lates!

So, my first update will be for my two new conversions:

I figured both Finding Nemo and Lion King will come in 15mm cases (at least here in North America). So, some might want to use the original cases instead of finding new ones. So I will be uploading 15mm versions of both.

Great idea to also start a showcase like this 8834.gif

Maybe you can make the spines clickable, with a link to the gallery for that cover?

Thanks nok!

I thought about that... but then realized that it would take about 70 separate images and many lines of coding... man that would be a lot of work... we'll see winking.gif

-----------------------------------------

Hello again everyone... I didn't feel the need to create a showcase for my Hitchhiker's guide cover, so I never got to show you some of the specific detail elements that went into the cover, so, here is some of the things I did:

I created my cover to reflect the theme in the movie of the actual screen of the Guide.... whenever there was something the Guide needed to explain, it used animated type characters with these colors to show it... and I thought it would make a good cover!

It took me many hours to vectorize many of the elements of the cover, the ones that weren't from images of the movie were made myself from memory.

The vectoring of images from the movie was especially hard because some of the details were really hard to see and had to be interpreted. In some cases (the three characters on the back), the image two of them came from was only a partial view of their body, so I had to make up the rest myself... You can see that in the second preview below.

Here are a couple of the vectors made from images:










If anyone is interested in learning more about Illustrator vectoring, let me know... I might be doing up some sort tutorial in the near future!

Hey BPM, i thought the vectoring was amazing and if you do some sort of tutorial mate, i would be very interested in following it.
It was a great cover and deserved the win. I'll keep an eye out for that tut lol!

You're always stealing my ideas and doing a better job than me, bpm... for shame. sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

Just kidding...

Some absolutely beautiful covers in this collection, ford! Not a bad idea to have individual artist threads... helps us follow what someone's up to and even shows their improvement as a designer. 8824.gif 8824.gif 8824.gif

Impressive set there ford, hitch hikers is great, the way you did it is fantastic, voted it number 1. Love the preview you've done here, and kearnie's also, how do you do those spine previews, as in is it a program?

kernie - thanks buddy, it's the best way to do it... wait til kernie comes up with the idea, then steal it and make it better, mwa ha ha! ... JK buddy, I agree, would be cool if each of the artists had a thread like this.

random - thanks, appreciate the comments. As for the spine previews, I use the same action I do for the full previews that you see above with Sunset and Lion King/Nemo, but then I drop the preview into another PSD file, line up all the spines, then put a mask over them to get rid of the front/back... Do that 70 times, and that's what you get... I think that might be similar to what kernie does.

I use actions to make the preview, but my spine layout file is really easy to add to, so it wouldn't be worth putting an action together for.

It's basically just an extension of the Cover Preview action, with a few steps added on so that it crops the preview to the width of the spine and automatically does a duplicate layer into the PSD of all my spine previews (the spine preview PSD must be open in PS for it to work). I still have to place the spine where it belongs in the collection PSD, but it saves me from manually doing the cropping/duplicating/etc.

I could try to make an Action file, but the last few steps (duplicating into your file) won't work properly because it depends on your filename. The most my action would do is run the Cover Preview steps and then crop to the width of the spine.

Make sense?
