I'm new to this and teaching myself photoshop as I'm going along. What do people think of this, I think i'm pretty much finished but would like to here some feedback.

Wow, you're very quick! S3 jus started.
Maybe wait a little bit for some more stuff for the season.

The cover looks very good but I would not use so big rating logos. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)
I always hate such big logos on original covers... (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/cussing.gif)

I know what you mean about the ratings but I was trying to make the cover look as authentic as possible, apart from a few little jokes on the back, and unfortunately that is how big the ratings are in Australia. Exactly to size.


I also forgot to mention that this is sized for those 10 disc dvd covers with the really think spines. Just before someone points out that it looks wrong.

Looks great for your 1st, much better than mine, lol. You mentioned jokes on the back, if in the legals you may want to reconsider, as most designers frown on that, yes the rating are huge, but you'll fix that, I would soften up the line between front and back on the spine, but that's me. Great Start!

Thanks:



nice start (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) I know you say that those are the right size for those logos but I really would make them much smaller...these are customer covers and you don't need to conform (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

I agree about the jokes in the legals, it is frowned on so might be a good idea, if you plan on sharing this cover, to get rid of them.

I personally hate barcodes, but thats just a personal preference...

I like the style of the front, could you use that style for the screenshots on the back? It will tie the two together better IMO.

other than that pretty nice job (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Thanks for everyones responses they are greatly appreciated.

The front is the offical poster for season 3. I like the style too but there is no way I would know how to do it in photoshop. I would love to tie it in a bit better like you say but I wouldn't know where to start.

The jokes aren't in the legals, there in the special features tab. And they're not much of a joke either, I just didn't know what to put in it.

chefjoe, I agree about softening the line between the front and back, thanks for the tip.

Leave me alone I'm drunk. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Seriously tho, don't use that Special Features box if you don't know what's gonna be on there.. Or, ehrm.. Eh, that's your call but I'd remove the "nope" and the above line before posting it.
And what goes for the rating-logos I like them.. And the barcode... (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/ashamed.gif)

Anyway, nice work - I like it...
