At the moment I have a weakness for these illastration looks so after Midway I've tried this with another cover.
I didn't expect that before but there's not really much to work with for Gemini Man and at the moment I don't know what to use for the back. lol.gif

Here is what I have so far and as always your suggestions are welcome! cheers.gif



This is what I did with the characters (I know it's a bit hard to see...):

I think you have a good idea here but you need to perfection it ! The color and TT suggest its a action comedy movie but its far away of this. Also be careful with the glow light on wong its to much at the moment !

I personally don't see any problems with the colors but what you had in mind? . Or did you mean the title's color? I know the title isn't perfectly working for that type of movie, it was just a try. But I'm open for any suggestions what to do instead. 8834.gif

Awesome work so far bud! Now that shoty has mentioned it though, the Title does make it look like a comedy..... it needs to be more action style. Maybe it is the arch of the title that doesn't help??

I’m not overly keen on the TT and the fading on the lower part of the characters, how about having them sit inside the circle?

I’ve not seen the film so not sure if what you have done on the front ties in with the film.

Thanks for your both comments as well. 8834.gif

I'm not sure what to do with this cover. I thought it was a good idea to go this way with nearly no resources available. But at the moment I'm not sure if I even should continue this.

I've changed a few things, title was moved up and it's no comedy-effect anymore (allthough I think the ne one doesn't work 100% as well), changed the colors to something less popping, added Will's clone (with the only available image of him) and spend more work on painting the effects of the characters. Still need to do something in front of Wong.

Really nice work again 8834.gif

I would love to know if I am alone on these points though, but here goes.

I am not a fan of the font used for the title. I think that is where the 'comedy' look may be coming from. It needs a more sci-fi/futuristic style font.

I don't like the way wong fades into the floor, but you have said you are addressing that 8834.gif

Will's clone looks really odd. I know it is from the poster, but he looks really awkward to me?

I liked the eyes in the previous version.

Agree with everyone about the font, something nearer the original poster font might suit better.
I'd try making the front more two-tone as there's a bit too much orange/ brown.
Also maybe you could swap the position of Wong with the burning man and bikes to potentially cover up that weird wrist angle?

Mockup without the swap:

You have a lot of great pieces here, and I'm excited to see the effects you're exploring. cheers.gif
If you could bring the top Will Smith down and left a bit, that might help tighten the composition and give you more options for your title treatment. (That creates a blank space next to his shoulder, but maybe there's a good piece of scenery or special effects for up there.)

Otherwise, I pretty much agree with the guys here that the two things holding this cover back from greatness are the font and color.

The font is a little too fat and bouncy, and the shading effect highlights that further, making it look friendly. Something sharper -- either sharp edges or a sharp metal texture or just a sharp flat color -- could help.

For the coloring, I think your 13 Hours, Matrix, and Sully covers are all perfect examples of great dark color palettes. The colors on this one might work with a lighter background, instead of the reddish brown. Or, you could simplify the color palette even further (not necessarily gold, but this is just an example):

I tend to agree with Baz, I like the new changes though.

The title is the big one for me not fond of the Font or the effect, it still looks to rounded, maybe flatter style with harder edges, could 3D it maybe if you wanted.

Edit: I see me and the Bunny are on the same sort of track lol.

Before I saw Tim’s recommendation regarding the title, I was going to suggest having a flat white title instead of something with loads of effects, the main focal point is the images so a simple title could work best.

Thank you for your suggestions, they were very helpfull! cheers.gif

I've changed the title font like Tim has suggested, added the effect on the I N I as it's in the trailer.
Also I've changed the colors again some more, tryed to rebuild the Plaza de La Aduana in Cartagena (this is where they have the hunt on the bikes in the movie) and made some screenshots to add the S.W.A.T. guys to the front.

Still some stuff to do but this is where I am now:

Looking really good, I think the TT could be a bit bigger?

Other than that no other suggestions 8834.gif

Thanks bud.
You're not wrong about the title but if I enlarge it the I-N-I won't really be visible anymore and I'm not sure if I should move down Will Smith anymore?

What a great update! The added scenery and swat team have really made the cover pop!

For the title you could try swapping the names and tag around, and then you have a little room to increase the title and bump it up a little?
