Since this movie is not even available on DVD (and likely never will be) there is virtually no artwork for this. This is what I have so far. Be gentle, I am very new at this. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

So first off, the pic is HUGE - in the WIP section your only supposed to post a preview (800x537px or similar).

And about the cover, looks cool - havn't seen the movie nor heard of it so I can't really say anything about the artwork.
But so far the layout is nice, but it looks sort of empty above the row with screens on the back. And perhaps use another font for the synopsis and maybe up the size one notch.
Ehrm, not sure what else you might wanna do.. But it looks good so far, nice work!

Thanks for the suggestions...and sorry about the pic size - I should have read the WIP rules. Will resize for WIP.

I agree with the empty space but since there is no hires (or lores for that matter) pics for this movie, I was thinking about stock pics of bats, mexican wrestlers, or something else.

Agree 100% on the synopsis...will re-space and work on font.

I've got an old dubbed VHS to DVD copy of this (since it has never even been considered for DVD release) so screenshoots would be of very poor quality....

If you can get your hands on a copy, I recommend it if you enjoy REALLY CHEEZY, BAD MOVIES! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Thanks again for the tips! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Re-sized the WIP pic (800x537)

Changed the font/layout of the synopsis

Added bats behind synopsis

...and a less than flattering critique of the film because this is a BBBBAAAADDDD movie but in a good way! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/lol.gif)

I like what you've done! But I'm (and who the heck am I to say haha) still not happy with the synopsis.
How about a more techy-looking font like the title on the front?
Keep up the great work (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Changed the synopsis font (all I have for fonts are the Photoshop stock fonts) and did a little cleanup work.

Any suggestions or can I put my first custom to rest? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

For what I can see.. You're good to go, or in other words - save the .psd file and move on to a new one! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

Thanks for all the advice & tips. Even though this was a simple cover relative to the majority of covers on HIREScovers, I now have a true appreciation for the work done by the real cover artists, like yourself!

It is fun but, far from easy!

Thanks again
