This is my first cover. It's not finished yet, but i would like to get some comments.

I haven't even started with the front. The white text at the back will be taken care of. And so on (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

But please give me some great tips.

I like that you aren't just resorting to the same old artwork and treatment, but this just doesn't look like a Superman cover to me. I guess the ice motif is supposed to represent his fortress of solitude? But in the films it is always much more crystal-like than icy, and even though the crystals themselves are a major part of the film, the fortress setting is featured for no more than a minute or so. I just don't think the background image has enough relation to the film to use as the theme of your cover.

Now if you ever decide to do a cover for the movie Alive...

Haha.. yeah Alive.. maybe I will do it after this one.

I like to do something new, so I tried the ice theme. One problem is that I haven't seen the movie yet (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Thanks for the comments so far...

Superb first cover, like it, shame you haven't seen the movie though as I suspect you'd have gone in a different direction.

Thanks guys!

I will keep the theme until it's finished and then change it if it's horrible.

what do you think about the red S ?


and for the text... I've tried so many ways to get it more readable. So it's not done, but the rest is... I think. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

Prefer the red to the blue.

As for the text on a light background I just use a small drop shadow and tone down the opacity to about 50% or so.

I'd turn the text glow down to 40% and hit it all with a good drop shadow, distance of about 3 at 90% opacity. Drop shadow is the key here.

I've tried the black shadow, and it ain't pretty. The best result that I got was with a big darkblue blur in the backround... It doesn't fit well with the rest. That's the big problem... but I will do some more tomorrow.

edit: no tomorrow (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

sauron


hey. well I don't need the strokes anymore.. I solved the problem.
And about that S logo, I had the original colors, but it didn't look great.


For all you out there:

Do you think it's ready? Or what should I improve/add?

I've got so many diffrent comments on that one. But most people like the red one.

I will try to do it more ice/cristal so we can compare later (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)
