    I repeat, where is Luis?! sad
  1. I'm here!!! still alive... biggrin

    Well, lot of things happened in my non-interesting life ha ha ha, my first nephew was born, I was working for Perseverance Records on a soundtrack cover, I moved to another house with my family, etc. That's why I was a bit dissapeared and also my site, I'm trying to update it with more covers I was making, so stay tuned cool

    Will collaborate to this awesome thread really soon, I have some alternate covers at home.

    Best regards to all and happy new year beer

    Hey Bregt!

    I made covers for Elia Cmiral's Journey To The End Of The Night, I think is now available. Here you can take a look of the design smile

    I'm glad to see there's still a lot of people producing really good stuff in here! I'm finally done with this school year, so I'm back to making covers. Here's my first one after a long hiatus:

    Prince Caspian

    I also just started working on a special set of covers that I'll hopefully post sometime this week. No guarantees though, because I want to get it just right.

    They stole your art too. biggrin

    Actually, in many cases Japanese releases have better covers than US ones. (But sometimes they produce bad stuff too) I'll post some links to those covers later...

    You guys realise the basic outline for most CD covers myself, Luis and others make is usually just the movies promotional artwork? tongue

    • CommentTimeJan 9th 2009 edited
    Of course I know. tongue

    But usually there are several promotional artworks for one film. Those who decide which artwork (and which part of it) is appropriate for a CD cover must have good taste.

    And it seems most of the professionals don't have it. You amateurs here have far better taste! kiss

    For all the Joe Hisaishi and Miyazaki fans out there (and if you're not, what's your problem biggrin tongue ). These were a lot of fun to put together. Tried to keep it simple and stayed away from poster artwork and just concentrated on Miyazaki's drawings.

    My Neighbor Totoro

    Princess Mononoke

    Spirited Away

    Howl's Moving Castle


    Awesome! I especially love the Totoro one! punk

    I made a CD-R album containing tracks from three albums. I used iTunes' printing feature to make a tracklisting and cover art, but with three artworks there remains one annoying blank square. rolleyes


    So I was looking for an appropriate photo of the composer to fill the blank...

    I like this one because of the dog, but this guy doesn't look like himself, and somehow his smile reminds me of Roger Allers (one of the directors of The Lion King) smiling. So I rejected it.

    This is a very nice photo, but a bit too serious for the dramedy scores.

    Too unserious.

    Ugh this would ruin my cover. Pass.

    Finally, I found one I liked. And it's already square!

    So, this is the result. I also used Seashore (Photoshop-ish freeware) to modify the list.

    It is nothing awesome like other people's artworks, but I enjoyed making it a lot!

    (The only problem is, my inkjet printer made his forehead shinier... tongue biggrin )

    Hey Miya, funny, I've been thinking of a cover as well recently. I needed a square image for each composer and for Hans I just took this one. It's very small, but I need much smaller pictures than you because it will be a compilation of 14 composer pictures. Here's the full picture by the way. But perhaps you want a coloured one?
  4. Hello Miya, maybe one of these pictures could be useful:

    Hans Zimmer 1

    Hans Zimmer 2

    Hans Zimmer 3

    Thanks for photos, Bregje and Luis! I'll use them when I need to make another cover. smile


    Last night, I thought it would be ok to spend some fun time before working on my study. In the end I spent more than 2 hours to make this cover for my Narnia compilation. shame

    http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a75/WW … acover.jpg

    This time I used Pages, not iTunes. I added the Narnia logo and some illustrations by Pauline Baines. I'm satisfied with this result, except I couldn't find Pattertwig's picture to put next to Harry... biggrin

    don't know if this is legal, but why not send your stuff to the labels who produce soundtracks?

    Actually I did it with some labels and so far I got a call from Perseverance, so I worked for them once. Hope other labels could take a look on my work, I'm trying to re-design my website and also include new artwork (that's why was not updated for some time)

    Thanks Pawel for the tip, will do it wink

    The latter, unquestionably. Blends in more with the film title and the background! Nice cover, btw.
    I am extremely serious.

    If you can add a drop shadow to the Walt Disney logo and the title then I would go with the first one. Also, try and find a sharper version of the Disney Logo and Title.
