For me its usually the back. Trying to make them interesting and yet functional with all the text can be hard.

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.

Lack of skill, knowledge of the programs to use, and the time to learn how. That pretty much sums it up! So here is a big THANK YOU to all of the designers out there, because without you I would be stuck with boring covers and labels.

Thanks:



I find the hardest part of making covers coming up with what cover to do in the first place. I try and do covers for films I have seen and sometimes not all of those inspire me in any way.

And I usually try and have more than one on the go so if I get bored with one I can work on the other one and vice versa.

At the moment I only have Mr & Mrs Smith on the go :( so if anyone has any ideas for a cover let me know...

Why dont you edit the first post and put the credits you have there in a new one... then you can put the index of credits in the first and the credits from your list will be in the next post... after that when anyone put credits you just need to change the index post putting the name from the movie and the page where it is (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

I belive all that you've mentioned can all be a real b**ch sometimes.
Tho so far I've just browsed a little and found some neat sources, then made a concept out of it.
But what I really don't like is to try and get the back readable, but still attractive..
