    Hi everyone...I'm a newbie to the board. Just thought I'd share some low-res previews of a Marvel set that I've been working on a bit. Since you all are Comic nuts, I'd try and get some feedback from you all. What do you all think?

    Im a bit torn. They are all good art. But as DVD covers, some, like DareDevil, are a bit too flashy.

    Well I like the Punisher didn't like the Hulk one, why was Bana face green? The X-Men was kinda silly, looks like Wolverine is asking Magneto to check out his ass! :D And DD is too flashy. But why dvd covers? You selling bootleg tapes?

    Nope....there actually exists a community of users on the net that specialize in the creation of custom DVD cover art. We use them to replace the often crappy studio deigned retail covers of DVD's that we have purchased. Many people use custom covers as a replacements for DVD's that come in snapper cases. Others make custom DVD covers simply as a way of showing their creativity. You'd be suprised as to how many people actually use custom covers.

    I've created covers for a couple of other movies outside of the Marvel Collection. In fact, here is one for Hellboy:

    The request is for my fan-made movie, so I'm pretty sure you didnt make it.

    Why do you have The Man Without Fear on the Blade 2 cover? That is Daredevil's catchphrase. Nice work otherwise.

    If you can get me some material to use than yeah...I could make it! Do you want it to use the same template as my Marvel covers? Also, where can I see this fan movie?

    I think you mean Blade 3....that's because when i made it, there wasn't a Blade 3 tagline released yet...I need to check if one has been officially released by New Line. Once I get it, I'll add it in.

    You mean the Blade 3 and Toxic Avenger 1 synopsis?

    Well, for Blade 3 it doesn't really matter for now since the film hasn't been released on DVD yet so I won't be releasing a hi-resolution version of this cover until the DVD is released. And, when i made this cover i couldn't find a synopsis for the yet to be released film.

    And Conan...well, I only worked on it last night so it's still a work in progress.

    well... i do enjoy what you have done here... BUT only if they would be "released" as a big box set. you have continuity through all of them which is good, but only if they are released togeter. i like the hellboy one alot. my other gripe is that most all of the covers are just the movie posters or released art. but i do commend you on your work. it is very nice. im not trying to knock you, just some constructive critisism.

    Really good stuff. I don't like all of them but there are a few that I really love. Especially the Spider-Man and Hellboy covers.

    Hi iCoty. I think your covers are fab. I tried e-mailing you and private messaging you, but I'm not allowed to. Guess your settings says you're not accepting PM from other users?

    Anyway, I was wondering if you could make me two DVD covers. I'm lost when it comes to making DVD covers.. Will you please e-mail me?

    griinga(at)start.no

    Thanks :)
