Is there a space between "where" and "art"? if there is then it might need some kerning.

How's this looking?

Thanks Curt! Fixed.

So, rearranged the floating heads a little, adding Holly Hunter, and the Blues guitarist.
Also started the spine.

Good start! 8834.gif I think you should pull back a little before going to the back. I would remove all effects (effects this heavy on an entire cover can make it look less retail? It feels a little photoshop-happy. I would slowly start adding effects back in until it feels like too much.

I also think that the BG in your second post had good contrast levels (minus the black vignette and heavy texture) . It would be nice to have the heads a little smaller and in the sky (lower the horizon closer to the bottom and maybe have a full-body image of the 3 leads? Your head layout is very interesting and like a classic poster but it has some edge tension with John Turturro on the left

Keep it up!

You could also look to classic posters for more floating head layout ideas

I also like what you have done so far! And I personally like the filter work. 8834.gif

I'm with Paris about the colors etc and prefer the image form post #3.
On the left side of Clooney's head (next to the small heads) you maybe could work some more on his hairs?

Oh and a nice title btw. wink.gif

It's shaping up nicely. The three main characters look great, but not sure about the fade on the two other ones (two on the top(small ones)). I think the fade might be too heavy or you're simply missing too much of these two characters. Maybe fade them into the grass to the left of Clooney's head (where you have some open space). The effect on the characters might be a bit much, but I think it matches the rest of the cover very well.

Swamped with work at the mo, but I plan an update for this come the weekend.

thanks for the help and encouraging words. Between the posts here and some PMs I received with helpful suggestions; I am excited about the somewhat new direction this WIP is going to take! wink.gif

Couldn't help myself, so here's an update. Fine tuning will be next.

I was thinking maybe swap the cow and the trio, so that the big Turturro is looking at the cow on the roof... We shall see...

The most recent update is looking much better, I do feel it's a bit heavy on the left with all the images though, I would also try reducing the saturation a little so it's not so orange/red.

Better now 8834.gif Personally I would move the woman and the guy with the eyepatch to the bottom right and then have the tagline at the very bottom where the border line is, if that makes sense?

I agree with sauron abouth the placement of Goodman, the woman and the tagline.

Apart from that I'd reduce the saturation like you had in post #7 and then I'd try to give the both smaller guys on the left of Clooney a bit more natural colors (like you have them on Goodman).
