Was starting to worry that the cover doesn't match the genre of the film, even though I like how it looks so far.
Anyone have any thoughts/ suggestions?

It is a very nice star. I like the pastel colour background. Maybe reduce the girl in the middle just a little?

I am sorry, but I haven't seen the film. So I cannot comment on how suitable it is.

If you watch "His Dark Materials", it is the same, shorter.

Otherwise, it should be good to put a little dark, just my opinion...

Seems that kidman has not the same tone than the others.

Great start icon_biggrin.gif

I feel it's a bit too washed out and adding some contrast would look better.

Nice start m8.

But I agree, your images need some more work to make it a more harmonic image.
I'd use the guy on the bottom left as reference (but he needs some more levels or curves adjustments as well) and adjust the other characters to make them look more similar to him.

The images in your background all work very well. Only the image behind Kidman isn't really working for me - the part between her hair and her right shoulder is too dark. I'd try to adjust this part of the background or maybe just move the image to to left so dark parts of it ar behind her head then.

Between the other characters I'd add some dust to separate them better from each other and give your artwork some more depth - here especially the two guys on the left of your front.

Last but not least I'd try to vary the images sizes a bit more. At the moment the three guys in the back have similar sizes just as the two in the front. Working with more different sizes would make your image look less straight-line but more diversified and interesting.

Have tried to adjust and develop based on all feedback given so thanks everyone.
Only thing I haven't worked in yet is Fidi's suggestion of dust.
I did think about adding a stardust/ magic dust effect the other day but haven't found any decent assets for that yet.

Looking better, I do still think Nicole Kidman needs work done to match her to everyone else, also the flying person is a bit odd, personally I would remove her.

Do you think there's just not enough contrast on Kidman or is it the colours as well?

There seem to be a lack of contrast all over imo, on some characters more than others. I would also try to match all the skin tones as close to one another as possible. Not sure about the flying woman either, unless she's a significant part of the movie.

I agree, they still look too different on your front.
Do you knwo how o work with the Dogde&Burn-tool?

And I'd also remove that flying woman, she looks strange there.

You could maybe make the flying woman work if you reduced the rest of the images, and had her higher in the air. You could then fill the top space with actor names or a tagline?

And as said above, I would match the skin tones, as some are more yellow and others more red. Also the levels are not consistent. And finally, Daniel Craigs skin could do with some softening.

If you are not familiar with how to make any of these adjustments, then feel free to ask 8834.gif That is what we are all here for, to help you learn.

But ultimately if you do not agree with these pointers, or are simply happy with your cover as it is, then you do not need to attempt them wink.gif

Always appreciate the feedback everyone, also know that I have to listen and try things to improve Bazzah so will always give the advice a go 8834.gif
I have methods to try and match the levels, saturation and colour but they don't seem to get the most accurate results. Lots of the time I feel like I just have to end up doing the final adjustments by eye (which is also rather inaccurate).
Gave all the adjustments another go. Replaced flying woman with another version of her. Also did some burn on the top centre woman's face to get her shadows similar to the others (but I still feel her colour is off a bit and she seems to be the most difficult to match).

It's getting better with every update. The problem I see is that a few of the characters have different light sources, see my example of the shadows circled.

That is looking much better 8834.gif If you could do what Sauron has suggested, it would be better again 8824.gif

Have I gotten away with this? (i.e. does it look natural?)
To meet sauron's suggestion I:
Masked, reflected and rotated Daniel Craig's head only, leaving his body as before.
Masked out the bust and arm of the witch in the top right and merged it back onto the rest of her body, removing her original arm.

I think you have done a really good job here 8834.gif Do not worry too much about the light source. There was a big discussion before regarding this, and it was agreed that light sources on montages are not necessary. If it were a scene that you were making, then it would be important. Kudos to you in what you have achieved here, especially your ability to implement the suggestions that have been made
