I'm working on a set for the star wars collection. This is only the first movie, but the others looks the same way;) My way of working this time was to create a simple design.

I haven't use the clone tool. It's build up using layers, masks, rendered clouds etc. No clone tool involved at all.

In the lower of the 2 curves there is a break at the edge of the spine/back...
But I dont think you'll see it when it's in a cover. Also I think the top curve should start at the covers top edge... not roughly 100 pixels down. Nice idea otherwise... very nice (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

Thanks:



very nice..I really like the layout and design but not too keen on the background texture. I can see what RV is talking about too.

Great work though (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

But I dont think you'll see it when it's in a cover.

The break is there because if you look at the front, and just at the front (not the spine) you'll see that it's a perfectly mirrored line. So if you draw it further, you get a disformed circle. I've drawn that line a bit further on the spine. The figure on the back was a standart figure, which I found looked nice. In order not to disort that figure, you'll have that break. But as you already mentioned, you can't see it when it's printed out.

Also I think the top curve should start at the covers top edge... not roughly 100 pixels down.

If I started it on the top, the figure and lines aren't lined up anymore. Also, when you've printed it out and put it in a box, you have a sharp point in that corner which I didn't like;)

Thanks for the kind words. And that counts for everyone (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) It's my 3rd cover I've created this far, and I hope to be called an artist someday (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

As I look at the reactions, I think I can be sure that we need the other 4 of them so we have the set completed:)

Easily. But that would take out the concept of the cover. So there would be les marble to see. At start, I wanted the side Star Wars the same way like the front, but it was to small for it and therefore not readable.

Bad.... looks like clone tool, what isn't a good thing, if you understand me. Maybe you could work it in a different way

I see what Stalker is saying. it looks identical to bad cloning even though you didnt use it. Can you do something to the texture so it does not have that wavy line look? Not the whole background, just the title and top border.

It only looks like that on the thumbnail. But that means that it also could look like that when it's printed out. Hmmz, I think I'll play around with it a bit.

Alright, I found out the "clone" issue. It seems that photoshop has copyed the background image 3 times. They slide a bit above, and there you have the clone issue. I've recreated the StarWars on the front and the bars and now I think they look cool.

I've also created Episode 3, so that the first Trilogy is completed. (Or some few good suggestions must come (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/tongue2.gif) )

So I guess they look good now?

The big set? I only know about 1-6. Has someone a link or something for me to see if it's do-able to create the others?
