Jerry has embraced the absurd. Don't expect to gain any conventional understanding from his posts.

Are you John and Jerry or Tom and Jerry?

It's only Disney, they couldn't afford such professional software...

This is more like it!

They spent all their money to hire Mike Matessino for the expansions.

The official covers Disney is giving us are the worst covers on any official Star Wars soundtrack ever.

Seriously, why didn't they just take covers of the digital re-release?

I have no idea.  The covers Sony gave us in 2016 (the actual OST LP covers) were terrific, and the reissues by Disney last year were perfectly fine too.

 

I get wanting something "new" for these "new" remasters, but what they went with was..... extremely lazy. And ugly.

@aj_vader These look thousand times better than the Disney covers (which is not intended to be insulting). But the colours of RotJ are maybe a bit too much (which is intended as constructive criticism).

 

You mean I should take the vibrance down a little on Jedi? Too Bright?

Love the Trajan myself. And the desaturated Jedi is ace! I like the fact that you took Vader out, it suits the square cover aspect better.

 

@aj_vader, which application do you use for your covers?

Photoshop

I really like all your cover artworks, great job! But the whole Trajan thing just doesn't work for me. Doesn't fit the OT artworks at all. 

Which font do you think would work better? i'll try it out.

Yes, Darth Vader was spoiling the aesthetic, he's a big feature on 3, 4 and 5, I didn't think anyone would miss him. Return of the Jedi was the most difficult to adapt due to the posters available.

Maybe just Helvetica. Like the Original artwork covers did, e.g. ROTJ here:

R-8902517-1471122605-3009.jpeg.jpg

 

If you (and other people) prefer this font, i'll change and upload all six.

It just feels generic to me, Trajan at least has some character. A single LP from 1983 with much information crammed onto it is different from a special remastered CD rerelease.

Here are my recommendations for the planets on each cover:

 

Episode I - Naboo

Episode II - Coruscant

Episode III - Mustafar

Episode IV - Tatooine

Rogue One - Scarif

Episode V - Hoth

Episode VI - Moon of Endor, with Death Star II visible in orbit.

Episode VII - Starkiller Base

Episode VIII - Crait

Very nice idea @emiwan2.

 

I second the above, except like @Fal I think Geonosis would be more appropriate for AOTC. Coruscant features heavily in all 3 Prequels so it kind of cancels itself out.

 

Will you be doing Solo with Corellia?

;)

True, but Episode IV's proposed cover also features a desert planet. I would personally prefer a bit more variety among the aesthetics of the covers.

Thank you for all your kind comments.

This project is WIP so I will do alternative covers based on your recomendations :)

I know that ROTJ doesnt' work that well, I like the idea of Death Star 2 with Endor moon in orbit, I'll try.

Regarding Corsucant, I know that the planet plays a big role in all 3 prequels, but I think personnally that it really has kinda "adventure role" in AOTC more than in ROTS. I'll try with Geonosis anyway. If someone has a good pic for Naboo, I take, because mine is kinda poor in resolution...

For Solo : It could be  Corellia but I think Kessel will likely be interesting to work with, due the acid hues of the planet (as we can see in the trailer) : I really like the look of it.

Great work. I think the RotJ idea is nice. I agree with Coruscant having that role in AotC, although Kamino might be interesting, since it's part of the whole clone army mystery which a lot of AotC revolves around. Plus it would be a different look than a desert Geonosis or industrial Coruscant. TPM is a tough one because Naboo looks so much like earth, but the only other option, Tatooine, makes more sense for ANH. For Solo, go with whatever planet looks the best. So yeah, Kessel looks neat. I think of Rogue One how cool Wobani and Eadu look, and even though they have smaller parts in the movie than Jedha and Scarif, I would certainly buy a CD with cover art like that. Again, you have to think about the planet that is used alot in the movie, but also about the visual appearance. Keep up the great work!!!

Has anyone ever thought of doing a ship that relates to each episode. I like the planet ideas here, but what about ships.

TPM could be the Naboo Cruiser

AotC could be (for lack of a better one) Jango's Slave I or a clone carrier?

RotS could be the fighters Obi Wan and Anakin use at the beginning?

Rogue One could be the imperial ship that Rogue One used to land on Scarif.

A New Hope could be the sand crawler,the falcon, or the land speeder. Even a TIE Fighter or star destroyer. X wing.

Empire could be the walkers-even though they are land based.

RotJ could be Shuttle Tydirium

TFA could be X wing or falcon again.

TLJ could be the supremacy.

Looking back it is hard for some episodes to find a good one, but just an idea.

Coming back with slight modifications for :

- AoTC (New Coruscant picture). Impossible to find a Geonosis picture with un croped  sphere and rings. Regarding Kamino, I couldn't find a good picture, and the planet colour hues are not so different from hoth, endor and starkiller)

- RotJ (New Endor Picture plus DS 2 in orbit)

- Rogue one (Death Star 1 added)

For TPM, I would suggest either Anakin's yellow starfighter or a Trade Federation donut battleship.  Anakin's podracer would be cool as well.
