My Favorite Custom Cover:
L.A. Confidential by Kaleigha



aileen looks good, dances with wolves is a nice cover let down by a couple of poor scans. try and avoid using scanned pics when making customs.Delta force is a SCAN, re typing the credits doesn't make it a custom.nice job on the fargo scan.(but its R2 not R1) NEMO, good front image but the back images look poor in comparrison.Flesh and blood, again NOT custom..poor scan dont know what its doing in the gallery(wheres FILMBOY gone???)the Hunted.again part scan. Lock up i cant make my mind uop about the front,but the back image looks a little low res.Ken park, a film ive never heard of but now want to see(for some strange reason).invasion USA, again poor scan with retyped credits.True romance, another cover with poor scans and dodgy flood fill(slaters fingers)

dont get me wrong and think im being picky, im just giving you an honest opinion,based on these i dont think your good enough yet.sorry.

you're right henry might have been leaping a little to fast, I guess I just saw an old familiar name. About the part scans part custom, I was a bit unsure about what to with those, since they were different from the retail I couldn't classify them as rebuilds. For the moment I have approved them but, I'm gonna let Bazzah take a look at them too.

Moved Delta Force to scans (I done this with a couple, but obviously missed some).

Flesh and Blood - I was in two minds about this one. It's certainly not the best scan we have, but I didnt think it was that bad (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure1.gif)

Hunted - Agreed partial scan, and therefore should come under scans, not custom.

Lock up - Moved to the rejected bin. Images are too low res.

Invasion USA - An interesting one. The back looks like a simple level adjustment would make it ok, but as is, it is too poor quality. Theres something going on with Chucks head on the front too. His top head is ok, then there is a division line, where it turns bad. A bit like a plasma TV with the contrast too high! I have rejected this one.

True Romance - This should fall under scans, as a large amount of this is a scan. Questionable if it should be rejected though. The front has been poorly executed, but does it fail to meet the upload rules??

Ok...im all for oppinions, and i agree with the fact that there are parts of scanned images used that could have been in greater resolution, but when you make custom covers u tend to use what u can get, and make the best of it...now what is a custom cover? well in my oppinion it is when you alter the cover in any way shape or form, even if u just change a front to another that looks better to u, its a custom cover!

And about the delta force cover, there are only 2 scanned images on there, i have included the file whithout the scanned parts, and to say that that isn't a custom cover, then i don't know what is!

Seems to me that a scan is...well just that a scan.....not altered in any way. Sure the resolution of the scanned parts could be better, i just use what i can find....sometimes i get a hold of original artwork and sometimes i get crappy images of the web, but i think that is part of the charm in making custom covers...cause in the end, when printed on to paper, u would have to use a magnefying glass to notice the crappy images....

Lets face it...its replacementcovers not posters....or am i wrong?!

Anyway...most of the covers are old ones...safe to say that the newer ones gets better (natural progression)....i can say that i strive to get better at what i do, since it is one of my passions in life, and also my job in part to do so...

more to come...

thanx for the input..good and bad (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

ok.
a lot of custom work has gone into the delta force, but the 2 main images are poor scans. (check out ant image in the gallery and you will see how the image is displayed,them you'll understand why they look kow-res)
this is "Hires"covers, and were not trying to slap you down.just pointing out whats bad, were more than willing to help in anyway we can.if your struggling for hires images put a request in, also you will find alot of links to decent sites were you can find hires sources.older covers are harder but they are out there.
try not to be offended and get your WIP into the forums for help. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/doctor.gif)

Thanx for the fast reply MrHenryDog (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

No ill admit i was a bit offended hence the venting...sorry bout that, but i felt i had to show that there is quite a lot of work in
some of those covers...much created in illustrator, so i guess i got a tad angry.....I shouldn't have been!

And part of me strugglin to become a contributer is so i can get my hands on some of the hi-res art so i can make better covers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

I have reacently gained access to a few sites with hi-res art, but there are still a few missing....

I will continue to prove myself...and maybe one day.....(IMG:style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

P.S. i do have lots of Hi-res art to contribute in the form of textless posterart and such...

If you weren't pissed off Lego, then I would be concerned. It takes a lot of time, passion and effort to make a cover. If someone tells you they don't like what you have done, you are going to be disheartened. The difference is here, is we are trying to help, which I think you appreciate. You have some very good stuff in the gallery. I think the only concern I have is that some is of really high quality, and others are low quality. A level of quality usually resembles your passion for cover making, and we strive to have the best, if we can. In fairness to you, as you pointed out, you are making a lot of old covers. Material for these is very hard to come by, hence quality is a big issue. Make any cover for a movie post 2000, quality is not an issue, as there is plenty of hires material. I am not a scan artist like MHD, but I can imagine that the best way of dealing with low art material, is a lot of PS work with filters/levels/cloning. What I do appreciate from you Lego, is that you haven't just said bolox to you lot, and given up. You have listened, and obviously have a pride in your work. It is because of that, I would like to see you posting in the WIP, and I will upgrade you to a contributor.

I think contribution is what it is, if the quality is there, yes poster, scan, cover, or lable should count. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)
