Let me preface by saying any critique I provide my is based on my personal preferences and what made me sucessful as a cover artist, so take it for what it is worth (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif
Now, You have a solid grasp on front covers. No doubt they are a super job on your part. My issues involve some technical aspects. For me the synopsis is too large and in some cases the font is too big. Id like to see more art and less text on back. In some cases, the text is hugging the edges of the cover to close. I wont comment on the billing and specs on some of your covers because I'm experienced with R1 covers only. Have you considered doing R1 versions for your friends out west?
In conclusion, I think you will get lots of recognition and your reputation will soar. With those adjustments suggested.
Thanks for the comments, i appreciate you taking the time to give me some pointers. The text for me was always a problem too big it takes over too small you cant read it when printed. This was a major pain, however i now have psp pro and photo cs2 which i am playing with and reading up on the tutorials here, so hopefully soon i will be able to produce covers that are well balanced over the front and back.
Once again thank you all for your comments.
