A little splash of colour here and there might be ok
I'm leaving the pics B&W though....and here's my reasoning.
There are very few high quality images for these movie, and B&W is
a hell of alot more forgiving to work with when dealing with sketchy images.

maybe a gold on the borders and red and Black on the yin-yag on the front?

still playing with this...and I want to do it right, I'm a huge fan as well.

thanks for all the comments.

cheers

I think you are right mega...I'd leave the pics B & W and get some color in somewhere else. Should be a nice set when done! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh... you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.

just a thought...could you make the symbols around the edges more chinese looking? ... maybe some symbols of some kind? or if you can get images from his books on Chinese Gung Fu, Philosophy psychology and Jeet Kune Do where he had sketches of his fighting that would be really cool (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

I can dig what your saying but that would not make it more chinese looking.
the border I am using is based on a chinese design, putting up symbols or chinese calligraphy would be the same as walking in your house and seeing words on the wall saying power, peace, etc...it's more of a western interpretation of what people think chinese design is.....does that make sence...lol, I confuse myself sometimes.

ok (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) but the border that you have used looks more romanesque... it was just a suggestion (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

What about some chinese dragons for the border & poss spine ( avoids repeating the symbol as well)? Are you going to leave Bruce like that on the front - the transition is way to harsh imo.Needs a subtle fade at least.

thanks lulubelle, I'm looking into a number of borders and designs right now, you may be right, unless you've been exposed to the art a bit the border may look more roman.

CyberClown, funny you say that...I just finished saying to the wife maybe I should swap out the yin-yang on the front covers to a different dragon design on each, never thought about a dragon boarder though.

thanks drastija

Damn this is going to be a ton of work...lol

I'm still playing with the layout and colour highlights, so when I think I got something I can live with I'll pop up another preview.

keep the suggestions coming.

cheers

Is this better?
Colours I'll be using are the chinese royal colours (green / red / yellow)

brings in some colour.
I'll use my other yin-yangs for the labels.
every cover will have a different dragon on the front.
borders are changed as lulubelle suggested, so corner accents are there now.

Irrob, I was thinking about red as well but the retails do the red pics so I won't be...lol

CyberClown, tried the dragon borders but the chinese dragons seem to make it way to busy so
the dragons on the front covers is a good trade off I think.

keep the suggestions and comments coming..I'm far from finished with this set, just getting started

cheers

But i am not sure about the back photo's. Maybe just ad big Chinese symbol and lose the pics. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif)
