Saw a request for this and thought I'd attempt to make a cover for it.
No hires pics available so they're all screengrabs taken with PowerDVD (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/scratchchin.gif)

I was going to do a little bio of kurosawa at the top of the upper back pics and put the synopsis in the gap between the four pics. I also thought about doing a border around the front and back, maybe with Chrysanthemums?

Would appreciate any ideas and advice. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Thanks Myers, kylumi and megafree, going to leave this as is unless someone really thinks that something should be changed/tweaked.

I would try to give a little bit of more contrast because i like them darken...

But it is great (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

Thanks for your input Ignore, tried different combinations of contrast/brightness etc but none looked the way I wanted it so I've left it as is. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

If people use it they can tweak the contrast on the downloaded pic to suit their taste.

Thanks for the poster nonini and your kind words. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)
