hehehehehe...................maybe its the titles that you go for......................even the retails for these titles look amateurish.

Take your time and look closely at some of the other Artists covers ...............download yourself a nice template from the download section...............then pick yourself a movie which has lots of available artwork......(king-kong............or something)................then take it from there...............if you need any help etc pm me thumb.gif

lol.gif PRACTICE, you should see my early covers,i thought they were great,then i found this place.
everyone starts somewhere,and while im getting better, im still crawling along compared to a lot of the artists who seem to fly through covers with ease and make them look very professional. dont be dis-heartened. dont be afraid to ask for help,and for me the best thing was reading up on my paint app,and trying some new things....dont get stuck into the rut of add front image/add back image/do spine,because you will never improve. thumb.gif

The covers look like a collage. Too many pictures make the cover look too busy.

Don't relax yet, there are more things that need to be addressed besides the pics (font choices, logos, overall composition) if you really want these covers to not look amateurish. I said "to start with". I assume you want a professional looking cover, which implies you want to take your abilites to the top. You may or may not take the advice given. At least find covers in the genre you really admire and take inspiration from them. last post.

Cover 1:

I like the front of this cover.

The spine: the blue color of the font, i would change it because it not corresponded with the rest of the cover.
Suggestion, make it yellow like the front picture.

The back: the pictures of the people looks to cut out and vary to much in contrast.

Already said: the logo's should be in the right place and at the right time.

Cover 2

To much pics all over the cover.
and as i already said the pictures vary to much in contrast.


Hope this give you some answers, and if you keep on trying it will all fall in the right place. thumb.gif
So don't give up. cheers.gif

This is something I thought meself (but, never got round to change)

Will work on them

do you mean its a crap choice of cover
If we all liked the same thing, what a boring world it would be

At this moment in time I can't do better than this, so I'll put this to bed and try some other UFC title (so there kylumi stick that in your pipe and smoke it.lol I appreciate your input apart from what I should or shouldn't like to make covers of.). I'm a slow learner, but all what has been said will sink in. As for ufc one i only have jpeg image so the only thing I could do was add a nother text in yellow (but it needs done again, I like the front of that one as well.

MrHenryDog, I had done this on purpose I guess it's I just like the unusual but I know what you mean.
kylumi, Pleased you took what I said with the humour it was intended with. As I certainly didn't want to upset an artist (and no I don't mean Piss artist) like yourself, but had you said you shoudln't start with these type of covers because you can not find hi-res pics of MMA fighters, I would of knew what you meant. As this was done as a request for someone who needed a dvd cover that he converted from a tv source. I sent it to him in an email and I noticed the quality (as i don't have a printer with ink (as there is 2 in the house)). Lets just say, it could look the best cover but for quality it's (for a better word) shit. Like I mentioned I'm a bit slow on the upchuck, but I keep looking at other WIP's to help me and read what ppl have to say.

I have tried thinking about what everyone said and I hope I've came up with the answer or is it 2 + 2 = 5
the bottom bit couldn't find anything to go so copied off old UFC cover (and sizes). I know these are not good enough for here but are they stating to look Pro.
