I'm back, taking a short little break from the Animated Disney collection. For some reason, I was inspired to do a Rocketeer cover. I have two versions currently. One without a filter (provided by ctaulbee) and one without. Comments on this please.

I prefer the second version. Interesting back, any plans for the space either side of the middle section.

Also, I would turn off hyphenate on the synopsis.

Two things the little image at the bottom of the back graphic is very different tonally vs the rest of the cover, I'd adjust that to match better.

If possible I'd try to frame the guys face on the left to better match the girl on the right, so they are closer in size.

I will play around with that image, it really stood out before and I will see if I can get it more in line with the rest, The two images, I might make hers smaller some to be around the same size due to his is a smaller image to begin with.

Sauron, I've haven't put too much thought into those areas yet, I could just leave them blank unless I find something I think fits in there well.

Thanks for the input

Yes framing her smaller would work too.

So, shrinking her didn't quite work out as intended but, I managed to enlarge the other pic more.

I couldn't get the one image at the bottom to blend in so well like I wanted so, scrapped it and just found an image with both of them together. Still need to fix the wording as well. Thoughts with the enlarge and new image?

Fix a little of the text left a cast name just sitting in the credits haha, that's fixed and thought about changing the background of the back and spine some to make it stick out some more. Spines are important on a shelf full of movies 8834.gif Thoughts on the color options? I think the marron color makes it stand out a bit more but would still like to hear other opinions on this. Thanks as always for your help on suggestions.

100% the black one it fits better with the front.

I do feel you need to do something to fill the gap... how about having the city background that’s on the front on the back?

I’ve never seen the film but I do feel having that shape on the back makes it very hard to get a good layout as the synopsis text looks very crammed in the small space it has... I personally would use that shape (if it’s significant to the movie) as something that sits to the left of special features or even the stills border but smaller.

I think the front motive is great. Is it a finished design or did you do it?

In any case, the black version. Don't even know how to come up with the idea to put the red version for diposition at all. Confused.gif

Hey, the reason why the maroon showed up my wife thought more color would look better haha, so I indulged and she was happy, seems black is the sure winner though.

I fixed the hyphenated synopsis and I added more to the back to fill the dead space now. Thoughts?

I liked it better without the duplicated graphics from the front, for me it's way too busy back there now, the space does not bother me.

If you do go down this road I'd remove that fade line at the bottom and put a hard edge there, like a divider bar in the same color as the frame maybe.

If it were me adding something I'd go the accent route, more along this line.

Yeah, from the beginning I didn't have much plans for that area I'm always open for suggestions and willing to try and get what people think. All in all I think both are good some will prefer the more going on in the back and some would prefer the lesser. I could always offer both version and let the people choose which one they prefer the work is done already haha, but I still appreciated all the suggestions and opinions that were given.
