So I decided to make a custom cover for my favourite series: CSI.
And this is what I've got so far:

(IMG:http://img304.imageshack.us/img304/1619/wipplainpx5.th.jpg)

(yeah I know it looks kinda low-res but it turned out that way when I saved, isn't that bad in hi-res.)

But now I'm kinda stuck, not sure how I wanna do the layout on the back.
Should I use a few screencaps or just put a plain and simples episode-list. Any comments?
Any kind of input is always nice - the worse the better ( (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif) ) (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/yellow.gif) (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Update #1
-Changed colors
-Changed from "Complete First Season to only disc 1 and 2.
-Added episode listing.
-Slammed in some random stuff to get the feel of how the credit block would look like..

Update #2 - Almost Final
-Finished the spine.
-Added legal notes, info and logos.
-Changed some text to yellow text. (thanks lulubelle for the idea)

My thoughts:
I tried to change the "police tape" to yellow but that just draw to much attention to it so I decided to change the Crime Scene.. text to yellow so that you see that too..

So what do you think, should I add a synopisis?

ADDED: Label WIP

My first go at a label, any comments?

Thanks:



Well, you already have some background images on there, so I would try out with an episode list/resume.

Once you have that in there, you can hopefully judge for yourself whether you need any more imagery.

For completeness, I would like to see some credits and logos at the bottom, but that is just my personal preference.

A great start. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

Thanks FB! I've decided not to add any caps from the "movie".
Will - as you suggested - add the credit block, some specs and some logos too.
Hope it looks OK so far. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/jump.gif)

I like the layout. Some parts I won't critique on because I have personal preferences when it comes to text

I like it (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) but have you thought about making the black lines with the text on them on the front yellow? like proper police tape?

Looks pretty good! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) Although I preferred the first picture for the colors, I think it's a nice touch the way they blend...that blue-ish/greenish (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

I liked that color tone too but the series is all about green, no blue so it doesn't really fit..
But maybe I'll do two versions of it.. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif)
