The Custom Covers Thread

Recommended Posts

Somebody made some great-looking cover art for Indiana Jones that was posted in the box set thread.

Naturally I cannot find it anymore and I don't remember who it was either.

Anyway, I was thinking it might be nice to have it posted in this thread as well and possibly on indianajonesmusic.com too.

Also, would there be any chance for the person who made it to make a similar style cover for Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb?

BTW: If ever a sort-of "definitive" 2-CD edition is decided upon for each Indiana Jones film, is anybody going to make back covers for that as well?

I really like Charlie Brigden's back cover design and would like to see something along those lines for the other films as well.

And good job to Mr.Movies for his Superman IV cover.

Do you happen to have similarly styled covers for the other Superman films?

Could anyone answering please send me a PM as well?

With my slow Internet, it's hard to find any replies through all the dozens of pages here.

Haha, thank you. I actually tried to make it fit in with the LP covers of 2 and 3, but I guess I could make some for the rest of the series. It was fun making that one. :D

That looks amazing! Must've cost you quite some effort, that!

BTW: Doesn't the Iskenderun track have pretty bad sound quality?

And how about "The Bridge"?

Would it be possible for everyone making back covers to also make a blank version?

That way people who make a different tracklist for themselves can still use your work by adding their own tracklist on the back.

Looks good, Luke. The back cover is excellent. A couple of comments:

- The image on the front cover needs a little bit of blending, as it's separated a bit too much.

- "Wharehouse Escape."

1-OK

2-Damn (again)

Iskenderum and der kroningratzer are there because the two are almost free of distortion, and i did not put them on too high volume.

The rest of the crusade cues are almost unbearable. Only the beggining of inscription on the rock is decent and catacombs too if it didnt had the mp3 crap brackground sound.

I just put the blank cover since no one will have the same Cd as me...

I hate noticing typos after I'm done finishing a cover. Most of the time I try to check it before I close photoshop out to make sure everything's perfect but sometimes once in a while some will slip through the crack.

That looks very nice.

I would prefer one in a similar style to the other soundtracks though.

Do you think something like that would be possible?

It would definitely be possible, if you wanted it. Which ones do you mean? The prequels? The 1997 SEs? The 2004 SEs?

Why do some people feel it's necessary to include the bar code on the back tray? I think it's a bit over the top to include the bar code...

I usually include it because my aim is to produce something that, theoretically, wouldn't be out of place on a shelf in a store. I don't include it on everything (I didn't use it for my Indy expanded ones), but I do on a lot of them.

Now THERE's a good idea! Brilliant! ;)

Believe it or not, but I'd actually like it in the style of the 2004 SEs.

I actualy made my own prequel front covers in that style too (posted somewhere in this thread, I think).

Unlike the real 2004 SEs though, my versions really ARE bad Photoshop jobs! :)

Okay, let me see what I can come up.

Also, great idea, Marc. Thanks.

luke,why didn't you put the track list on the "more music from Indiana Jones" back cover?

since everyone was going to have different tracklists it was no use of having my tracklist.

mmm i think i could do the actual official cd...

Well I'm surely but slowly getting better at making custom covers for myself. I'm also slowly but surely starting to resize pictures properly so they don't stretch. I just recently finished up redoing my covers for Superman Returns complete score and I like this one better than before. I know I will never do as good of a job as Erik Woods and Jamesyboy but I like how they turn out.

I hope you mean some previous covers by you...

Anyhow... What was wrong with my covers? :baaa:

I'm bored, any requests?
How about a series of similar-styled covers for all the Star Wars scores, including also video game scores,

such as The Force Unleashed, Knights of the Old Republic, Knights of the Old Republic II, and Shadows of the Empire?

Sounds interesting. Rpvee, what is it you're after?

This probably won't appeal to most, but I thought I'd throw it up anyway. An attempt to do something a bit different.

Bad photoshop ahoy!

Is this what you wanted, Pieter?

Thanks again for your work on this one, but I have one more request to make for it.

Would it be possible to somehow add a red lightsaber in the background that appears like it might be held by the main character?

The other covers all have a big lightsaber on them. :beerchug:

I quickly conjured up two simple covers for the promo for The Mummy 3 containing John Debney's replacement tracks.

I could use some help trying to decide which one's the better version.

Alternatively, I would welcome it if somebody were to do a better job altogether. :lol:

Thanks. Indeed that chopped off arm is rather unfortunate, but there's no squaring the picture without losing it. ;)

If you want to add that picture to your OST tracks, I can change the text so it doesn't say "Promotional Score by JOHN DEBNEY" anymore.
