I'm sure most everyone on here that does custom covers uses Photoshop, I know I do. In fact I taught myself how to use photoshop.

No, I use InDesign. Photoshop is a great image editor, but a poor layout tool. Photoshop plays a supporting role, though.

Here's my first contribution to the thread, a replacement cover for the expanded Dune soundtrack. It's basically a rework of the Blu-ray artwork.

Bored again...





just some alternate design... because I like the original one very much. also, the first one already exists in similar fashion somewhere on the web but I thought, I could do it better.

A little Twin Peaks series. There is certainly nothing wrong with the original season one cover, or the FWWM cover, but the season two cover is quite bad. The Twin Peaks Archive has a nice cover, but when you purchase the tracks the art is not embedded or available in high-res.

There is a consistent series of four, as well as two alternates for the Archive.

Well, I don't claim these to be anything special, but I was messing around while listening to Alien for the umpteenth time earlier and made these just for fun.

I always disliked the red-themed covers for The DaVinci Code. So I made a new one from several design elements used for the posters when the movie came out. As it happens, I copied the design for the BluRay... Well, here ya go anyway. I like it, it´s cool and calm. Also, blue and gold always work well together: french royal colours wink

That is awesome. I love that cover and how the gold contrasts so sharply with the beautiful blue.

Anyone have any custom back tray art for Morricone's Duck, You Sucker (preferably with track titles in English)?

Great cover mate smile
Any chance of an Angels & Demons soundtrack cover?
I always thought these two Zimmer score covers were quite plain and boring.

Thank you both very, very much.

The Angels & Demons cover... I always liked it very much. But I see what I can do, maybe I´ll come up with something. Tomorrow perhaps. wink

Here you go:



This should fit well to the one I made for The DaVinci Code: the same blue & gold theme. Though this time the faux gold is a bit more structured.



A more conservative design, just a variation on the overall theme really.



For this one I took the original Ambigram as a guideline. Don´t like it very much, it looks unfinished. Still, another variation.

But now beware: just for once I wanted to do something extraordinarily tacky and tasteless. Well, I believe I succeeded. Look at this piece of crap:

For an even more perfect tastelessness, you could have singled out the Joshua Ball line in a neon yellow band stretching over one of the corners. big grin Or even better, in a miniature tube TV frame.

Seems I´ve discovered a new hobby: designing covers. Well... to be realistic: taking the design created by others and tweak it so that it becomes a cover wink

Today I did a 'remastering' of J.N.H. "Signs" for myself and I already had the wonderful cover designs by Luis Roja... but then I wanted to do something new because there were some alternate designs. Then I went ahead - again - and recreated even the ones L. Roja did...


I discarded the Mel-Gibson-reference visible on the original cover. What does the actor has to do with the score? Never understood it...







This obviously is the one L. Roja did. But I wanted to see a bit more of the lens flare in the upper right corner. So I moved the lens flare a bit down and cropped it differently. I also wanted the movie title in the upper part which deviates from the official poster design - but it created a more balanced picture.



I did this one myself. Well, almost. It is inspired by the credit sequence, because for that the designers used a different title card which has nothing to do with the overall design theme. I liked it so it is here.

A handful of alternate covers for the Alien Trilogy album. These include clean versions, as well as some with effects intended to duplicate a grungy computer display (inspired somewhat by the Alien Anthology blu-ray menus).

Truly awesome work. The computer display, Space Jockey make me want to own this CD so I can use the art.
