Be good to see some older covers IMO.

I'd recommend 70s classics for anyone wanting a theme etc.

I understand the rules of the comp but i think it would have been wiser to suggest a main title,with this title making sure there's not enough hi-res material around for it.......... then you get the best out of the artists who's ideas really shine.......like the comp over at euphoric not so long ago they chose the lord of the flies and there was some amazing styles and variations of dvd covers that turned up from that comp.

When stating it must be a dvd title pre 2000 you may end up with designs which are thrown together because of the hi-res material available for them,the whole object of a competition is to make the artists think and come up with something very origional.

Just my piont of view.

But count me in anyways

Well imo, if you class yourself as one of the better artists, then choose an older title, it you are a relative newbie and not very confident then choose a newer title, that way it will tax everybody's expertise. The judges that do the judging will be aware of everybody's limitations, so I feel this might be an idea to consider

Demon. I agree with what you are saying, but I was doing this particular competition for all levels. Next, I am planning on doing a contest just for artists, with a public vote. Then we will have a particular title, as you are more skilled. I didn't want to make it too difficult for some of the lesser skilled members. As it is though, it is pretty tough. You can't use any poster image larger than 640x435, which limits cut and pasting. If we get a cover that is lots of small images thrown together, the judges aren't going to rate it. Judging will be based on creativity, imagination, skill etc.

I agree Bazzah didn't really think of the less skilled but then again i wouldn't say i'm that skilled either i just try not to use poster-art at all.
Even then it takes me awhile to finish cover because i like to try different things with each cover and look for tutorials on the web for effects i may wanna plan.

Best way of learning Demon. I didn't even know how to fill a square 2 years ago, but after searching the new, and a lot of experimenting, I know it pretty well!

And I would have to disagree about you not being skilled. You wouldn't have been so welcomed into the artist group if you weren't skilled.

And hopefully, you will start posting more here now, and get into the Resident artist group! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

I have found some great tutorial sites to help me, like you demon I try not to use poster art unless I really need to, and then I always change it to suit how I want my cover.

I am also learning the whole 3d thing, skally is away for a couple of nights so I have some spare time to work on learning the software (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

I think that it is a great idea for this competition and it will be great to see people get creative and not just slap a poster on the front (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

You can have skills and no creativity, and creativity and no skills and you can make a cover with either but you have both Demon, your covers are great (as you know I don't like all of them (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) (there is always going to be someone hard to please (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) ) but there is no doubt there is skill and imagination involved in all of them) (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)
