Looks pretty good. I think IMHO the word "Click" on the spine is too large. I think it would look better if it were smaller. It's a small preview but, the credit text on the back looks very hard to read. Maybe a different color text.

The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh... you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.

Nice start but somethings could be a bit better imo...

As bbb mentioned the title on the spine is too big, allow some space on both sides so as the folds may vary somewhat depending on the quality of plasticcover... also it looks like you changed the height to width ratio as it doesnt match the title on the front. I'd loose the barcode as I personally think they're ugly and a waste of space (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

The color of the text on the back doesnt really work for me, it's hard to read on the screen but may be better when printed. Id also loose the blinds behind the nice ladies and the german hit singer... there are some odd squares where there are no blinds and it looks a bit weird.

And no credits on this???

btw... i used the preview you posted in the prove yourself forum as the preview u posted here is waaay to small. 800x600 - 1024x768 is a nice size for previews in my opinion.

Overall... not bad, not bad at all, with some minor tweaking it'll be a nice cover.

Thanks:



nice start on this cover .. Raiderviking makes lots of really good points and it would be a good idea to listen to them (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

It is nice to hear that you are taking these comments on board (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

The credits that you have put on your cover need to be much smaller and the back image could probably be faded a bit so that when you put some text over it for the synopsis it will show up more.

nice work so far (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Most of this has been said but make the title on spine smaller also maybe better if you add a scanline effect within that title as the movie is more television based.

Credit Billing on back needs to be smaller maybe use the UNIVERSAL
ACCREDITATION font where you can get from http://www.tracertong.com/fonts5.htm type it out in word then copy and paste into whatever programme you are using.

As for back Dh and the 2 girls look a little stretched and improper AR maybe sort that out and the big CW behind them size him a tad smaller and move to the left.Then move the pics to the top maybe slightly overlap them.On the right you will have space to put a synopsis for the movie.

If your stuck for ideas always look at other artists creations for layout possibilities.
