The other topic thread with several of my WIPs is closed, but I am still finishing this one up. Here's what I have so far. Again... feedback?

Liking everything apart from the synopsis and screen grabs. They need a re-think.

Also I know it may not sound like useful advice, but trying working on 1 cover at a time in WIP (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif) Everyone I know starts out working 10 projects at a time and the net result is 10 average projects, those that focus on 1 at a time tend to get better results.

Looks really good so far, but i am not sure about the synopsis or the still's. Try using the same font that is used on the title for the synopsis also you could try putting the pics in a row and blend them into each other (if you get what i'm saying)

I will try working on this. And I will be slowing down on my projects... But I gotta tell ya, I think all you're going to get out of me is "average" projects. I don't know Photoshop that well, and am learning as I am going. But it seems like the longer I spend on a project and the more tricky I try to be, the crappier the projects turn out. I am a pretty simple guy, and my projects are pretty simple, too. I just hope some people like them and hope to keep learning and getting better as I work on more covers.

Sorry GB I didn't mean to imply that your covers are average in anyway. I think you have a lot of very creative idea's and if you slow down a little we can help your more in WIP particuarly if you concentrate on fewer projects at a time.

In the case of this one I'd try blending the screen grabs togther in a single line and placing them on a backing similar to the way the title treatment is done, then have all that in the space above the credit block. then move the crits to the area to the right of owens head, but floowing a path to match the shape of him and finish it up by adding a nicely treated quote to the left of his to balance it up a little more.

listen to Skallywag. You'll get better that way. It was me who closed the threads. It's hard for me to keep up with all your projects.

Here's two row blends I made per Sauron's and Skallywag's suggestion. The first is from hi-res sources available online. They seemed kinda static, in my opinion. So I took some more action-oriented screen grabs from the trailer and put those together as a second option.

Per Skallywag and Sauron's suggestions, changed fonts, aligned synopsis and quotes and changed pictures. Any more ideas/suggestions before I upload?

Well, thanks for the suggestions! They really did look better. Should I do special features on his back, or do you think I should leave it as is and call it a day?
