found this poster,which i really like,so decided to use it for the basis for a cover.

done some repair work,so can you see where the folds were?

and how does the title look? is the font apt ? and (just trying it out)does the webbing to the title have the right look/feel to it,i'd really like some help/suggestions with this as i have just painted the webbing,but i know it looks kinda crappy and not right. any ideas on how i could do it?

thanks MHD

thanks for all your replies (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif) looked at a lot of fonts chef,but this one kinda SAYS 'BODYSNATCHINALIENS' to me. willing to try another,if you have a suggestion.

have tried a different brush for the webbing to the font,but is it even working? or should i leave the font by itself? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif) help please.

I have a look for you.
I found a font that looks familiar with the Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.
Hope it is useful. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

Hey dog, not pickin on your font choice, just statin that I didn't like it. Have the original version, and the Font used was , well looks like Helvickia, or Futura, very straight and boring, nonini's (love that name) suggestion to me looked good, but try several, and choose the one you like, after all it's your cover. When I comment on covers, I try to look at the overall feel, not always the technical feel, some super great technical covers look lousy when printed, so you see I'm not critical, I just have fun with it.

thanks to nonini for the font,this looks a lot better,think im giving up with trying to 'web' to the title.

i might move the list of stars to above the main pic on the front,and put special features in the space left behind ?

pentagram- yes,maybe a darker cover would be in keeping with the film,but the original dvd of this was dark and i hate it..sorry

thoughts please.

Hi MHD,

very good work. I really love the old poster-artworks.
I have one thing you can have a look at. the preview is a little bit darkened,
so you can better see what I mean. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

(IMG:http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/7988/mhdil1.jpg)

Maybe you can do the transition between the artwork and background
a little bit better! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/whistle.gif)

At Special Features I would start with a big A at Audio Commentary.
The missing space in the synopsis where mentioned before... (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/whistle.gif)

cheers mate
