    If you guys are anything like me, you don't usually care for the official cover art on most soundtracks. I've just recently decided to start creating my own covers and add them to my iTunes library. I thought I would share them in case anyone is interested.

    These first ones basically had art that I despised (or none at all), and so I replaced them first. Some have taken almost no effort, some were a bit more difficult, but I just hope you enjoy them.

    Of course everyone is welcome to add their own as well or request something.

    Alan Menken: Aladdin

    Alan Menken: Hunchback of Notre Dame

    Alan Silvestri: Judge Dredd

    Alan Silvestri: The Polar Express

    Alan Silvestri: Van Helsing

    Alan Williams: Amazon

    Alan Williams: Arctic Circle

    Alan Williams: Island of Sharks

    Alan Williams: Kilimanjaro: To the Roof of Africa

    Patrick Doyle: Calendar Girls

    Patrick Doyle: Eragon

    They are very well done. Though the first two says "Music by Alan Menkin".

    I occasionally like to do it as well myself, though due to a recent computercrash I lost a lot. This is one of the remaining few that survived:

    David, I really like your Alan Williams covers, even though the Island Of The Sharks one is a bit "in your face", so to speak. But surely the original covers aren't too poor at all? I quite like them (even though I think I prefer your version of Amazon.

    Bob, oh NO! shocked AND YOU DIDN"T MAKE A BACK-UP? angry
    I don't know HOW many times I have to tell people...rolleyes (aren't you all going to have a field day when my PC explodes and I forgot to make backups for 6 months? wink ). I really, REALLY like your take on Dark City. It's WAY better than the original!

    Well... I had seen it coming, so I put everything of value on CD-rom's (like my graduation project) since there was just a lot I didn't need or could get rather easily again, but there went something wrong with the covers... I thought I had put it on a CD, but when I checked it when I had reinstalled my computer, it appeared I didn't... sad

    Wow, thanks! It's based on the original artwork created for the film by director Proyas, which I really liked as well smile (if you like, I also got back and inside art wink).

    Thanks for all the kind comments so far. BobdH, I really like that one for Dark City. I've never heard the score, but the cover honestly makes me want to now, which is exactly what good cover art should do!

    Thanks for letting me know. I'm surprised I spelled his name right in the post. No matter how hard I try, I can never spell his name correctly. I'll get that fixed soon.

    I don't know, the original Alan Williams covers are some of my least favorite out of my entire collection (except the original Kilimanjaro). I just don't care for them. My biggest gripe about most covers is they try to plaster as many faces on them as possible to get them to sell. I think good, strong artwork, is much more appealing to most. Then again, considering I'm a film score fan, I suppose I'm not really in tune with what most people like, haha.

    I'll try to have something for Happy Feet and Lair soon. I'll probably wait a bit on AWE so that I can make matching covers for the trilogy.

    Geez, Anthony, I've got some catching up to do!

    Anyway, here's what I cooked up for Happy Feet and Lair (I can't stand the spaced out letters in the original Lair logo, so I tightened it up. Hope you weren't too attached to the original logo). I've got an idea for Pirates, I just need to work on it. Perhaps after I get out of class.

    Besides cloning and cutting stuff out, picking the fonts is what takes me the most time. I'm a graphic design minor, and the emphasis on fonts just blows my mind. It's amazing what the right/wrong font selection can do.

    Here a collection of Pirates of the Caribbean covers that I just finished.

    Klaus Badelt: Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl

    Hans Zimmer: Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man's Chest

    Hans Zimmer: Pirates of the Caribbean At World's End

    That'll probably be all from me this weekend.
