Giacchino's STAR TREK - DE could also use better cover art or atleast a nice even 800x800 high quality size.

I´d like to add three cover arts...







I´m not entirely happy with all of them. Especially the first two, they look a lot like your-recent-desaster-movie. But they are official Star Trek posters nonetheless. And I wanted to do something different.

I think everything here is very impressive indeed, EXCEPT for the Ben-Hur cover.
I'd say the original artist's classic, magnificent poster image is better without any photoshop tampering.


Gee, I´d think that this is a matter of taste. Mine (and Warner Brothers) obviously isn´t yours. smile

just a different take. I was never satisfied with the official cover art because it didn´t show the mystery of the movie, only the attraction. This has both I think. Fate looms in the background disguised as the Empire State Building. Quite a lovely poster they did...

This has been one of most enjoyable threads I've seen/read. Truly amazing.

Not really custom but perhaps appropriate, I fixed some of the design issues with Robinson Crusoe On Mars:

I love these two.

Any chance you could post them (or provide link) in 1000 x 1000 size?

I can't fully enjoy music any more unless I have some nice cover art to look at - preferably "hand-rolled".

I can only daydream about having the mad skillz on display here. So it's lucky for me that at the small display size offered by my iPhone - my listening device more often than not - a single bold image may come across as well as something fancy.

I mean, at 200 pixels square, most of the great detail you see in that "From Russian With Love" cover upthread will go to waste. So why not just a glamour shot of Daniela Bianchi in her black choker?

I'll usually take any excuse to make it a picture of the actresses - as they're so nice to look at. But in some cases, there's an iconic image from the film for which nothing could substitute. If it's the Horner soundtrack for "Star Trek II", you've got to have the moment where Shatner screams "Khaaaan!"

I can usually find something suitable in a Google image search restricted to "Large". But if I have access to a good quality video of the film itself, I'll take screengrabs from VLC. In either case, I usually crop tight around the most interesting part of the image and then adjust the brightness/contrast and saturation in Photoshop.

In those cases, I sometimes make different "covers" taken from their respective moments in the movie. So for John Williams' "Jurassic Park", I took frames from our DVD. And now "Journey to the Island" shows the lovely Laura Dern...

... while "Dennis Steals the Embryos" shows the villainous Newman. I mean, Nedry:

Gorgojhyfstesev, the Hundra and Medusa Touch covers are superb.

Gorgojhyfstesev,
I like how your Hundra has vibrant purples and how the overall image is brighter plus that lens flair is gorgeous.

This is how mine turned out, as we used the same source material...


It's cool comparing our differing artistic "solutions." wink

Not wanting to cause offence, but I tried hard to spot major differences to the original cover, and all difference I was able to see was a different colour tint. A slight shift from yellow to red!?

These are all awesome. Thanks, especially for the SUPERMAN covers. I've replaced the ones I have in iTunes with these.

Cheers!


Thanks! I'm glad you liked them!

To all the cover artists on here: wow! I'm blown away by the talented work here! Impressive job folks!

There are sections that were either accidentally or intentionally not aligned properly. It is evident in some parts of the red/black clouds and especially the large white fissure next to the lower leg of Robinson Crusoe.

Do an A & B comparison of the two versions and concentrate on that whitish fissure area.
If you still can't see a difference, then don't worry, be happy. smile
