Ok this is my first WIP here so hope you like how it's going so far i'm currently redoing the sword text by hand for the blade on the front also the preview don't show the credit billing that good so i've included a 300 dpi preview of it .....i did try other various colours for the credit billing and legal text,Black turned it to dark and didn't give the cover that little bit of hmmmmmmmff if you know what i mean.I'm a little unsure of the image i have on the back someone on another commented that the bike and violet with soldier didn't look right but a vast mahority say it looks kool and draws your eyes into the cover.

I may end up doing two styles for this cover because alot are happy with the current situation with it and the odd few aren't (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/eek5.gif)

So comments from this great community are welcome and i'll see what i can do (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

I am really glad that I saw your proof yourselve previews because you have some fantastic covers on there (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

You said I wouldn't upset you by having an opinion so here goes...

Covers are subjective and you are not going to keep everyone happy, so IMO I think that the designer should be the one to cast a deciding vote on changes.

I love the background texture, I love the images but I am not keen on the font colour or the coloured stripes down the front, I think it is just because they are very blocky, maybe fade the edges a bit?

I think that the colour of her glasses would be a better colour to run with across this cover and would sit better against the silver background, but that is just my opinion (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Great work Demon (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Had my doubts about the credits but looking at the actual pixels preview I think it'll look good when printed with a good inkjet printer like my very own Canon IP5200. Especially on silver paper...

And I have to agree with Don... the bike looks too small... but i think you could make the ppl a bit smaller and still have the effect your looking for... and the perspective with the sword is great.

I also like what you have done so far, but I find the font hard to read, and at the risk of starting to sound like a copycat, I agree with what lulubelle has mentioned, I think the glasses would be a better choice of colour, but again this is up to you

The font colour was a problem and no matter what colour i changed it just didn't sit well,the glasses on front cover blend with the same colours of the special features box i was gonna run the same variation of colour for the whole cover but felt it would be to much which why there is a variation in colour tones which i think make the cover that more effective.
However you have made a comment on the stripes going down her face i like them and may make them a little less block feel but you weren't the only 1 who didn't like them there's another coverartist who opinions i highly take for granted didn't like them and that was CyberClown so the stripes may end up completely going but with the stripes not there the front looks a little bland even with the coloured glass lens and lips there.
Think i'll do a little more fiddling with that front.

Thanx again

I don't think they should go completely, but maybe a re-think?

Maybe instead of trying to blend those two colours, I agree making it one colour would be way too much, make it the colour of her glasses and then just a basic colour like black or white for the text with a stroke that colour? That may not work but I like tinkering you might find something that works better (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

It is just a thought... the two colours used currently, clash a bit

Ok i've edited my first post the 2nd preview is the update version where image credit billing and legal text have been altered i've left origional preview so you can see the changes also added new preview at 300 dpi of credit billing and some legal text.

I did try various other clours but black or white text just doesn't bode well with this cover still may do a little more fiddling but think this could be the colour tone for credit billing and legal text.
Anyone suggest a font for the synopsis????? as i'm not happy with that font

Ok i've updated everything in first post.
Thanx Skallywag (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

I've played with the legal and credit billing last night and most of this afternoon and now i think i've found the right colours what yall think?.....i think it's looking 10 time better now.
I also change the spine pic as somebody didn't like it.Changed the font for synopsis aswell which look alot better now than it did.
I'm about half way through finishing the sword text to be placed on the front so shouldn't belong before this cover is finished will probably do a matching label to go with the cover also.

What do you all think better or not?

I think you are on to something with your latest revisions. Looks much better now. Keep up the good work! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

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.
