THE STAR WARS REVISITED SAGA'S CUSTOM BLU-RAY/DVD COVER THREAD

We all love Adywan's A New Hope: Revisited and have helped out with creative ideas in some way or another. This is a thread which will contain fanmade covers for all the revisited edits (from you guys) and the main idea is to make the covers as creative as possible. I am going to create a cover that emulates the look of the official DVD covers for both TESB:R and ANH:R (which is way overdue, but will add to the range of covers in the end - oh and I'm also gonna do one for ROTJ:R too). I know that these particular covers don't sound too creative but I'm only doing those for people who actually love the covers that are on the official DVDs (since the artwork on those DVDs deserve something as equally cool as Ady's edits and not those incomplete DVDs that came out in 2004). To compensate for re-doing the official-style covers I am also going to make some unique covers for the edits, so you'll have to wait until 2010 for those (though I may reveal a little bit in the Christmas holiday).

So get your creative hats on people and make some custom DVD covers :)

In the end I'm gonna stick to the covers that Adywan issues - his cover for the first edit was magnificent - but I'm also going to print off everyone's covers (like I did with ANH:R) and keep them near my DVD collection. :D

Here's my official-style TESB:R cover so far - it's a work-in-progress and has glaring errors in it that won't be in the final cover.

I can't seem to get it to be smaller when I resize and post it - it always ends up the same size - can anyone help me out?

Resize it on your computer and upload the resized new pic again ;)

 

Take my ROTJ teaser pic.

Well I was thinking of doing that if there wasn't a way to resize it another way online - but thanks all the same :)

Love the teaser pic Angel.

EDIT: This is what my final cover will look like (I may add Han under Vader's cape - and Vader's cape looks kinda fake atm btw)

In order to contribute to the thread, here's my series once again (links to full-res ANH:R and ESB:R in my sig):

A New Hope:

The Empire Strikes Back:

And even a temporary Return of the Jedi with many things to be changed in a couple years! :

 

I love the classic poster artwork!  If I had the skills, I would love to paint something new, but alas, I do not....

O.T. or No T., baby!

hey guys, just my idea for revisited saga, this is just an old design, some of its changed now, also done ESB and ROTJ too. workin on PT next :)

There are more text and stuff on now. In other words the pic arent so empty on the left hand side. Trying to think of a design for the PT is quite hard. I love this design because its big black and powerful and just eye catching.

I think these are some of the best covers to date; is there any way you could make the words on the front and spine metallic or chrome, so they have a metallic shine (like this - click on images for links):

              


BTW, here is a cover some of you might like over at R1DB.com:

Thanks for the kind words.  I had made the ANH:R way back before the first DVD was released, but some people weren't too thrilled with the older than old logo used on the original Comic-Con teaser poster, so I decided to tweak it a bit:

I actually made a set for the entire theatrical saga where the bounding boxes and logos were in a gradient metallic gold.  When I made these, I decided to go with the simple white to keep it as clean as possible.  Maybe I'll take another look at these and add the gradient back in to see what's what.

And the last poster art you linked is classic!  Love the campiness!

Hey DuTwan... I love the classic styling of your covers man.... very classy!

Darth Chronus pointed me in this direction as I've been posting mine on the main thread. So here they are...

 

 

 

Enjoy!

Loving them all :)

Those classic styles are really eye-catching - stunning designs.

Welcome VincentSmalls.

There's a thread for Revisited DVD Artwork that you can post your image in:

http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.cfm/THE-STAR-WARS-REVISITED-SAGA-S-CUSTOM-DVD-COVER-THREAD/topic/10878/

Thanks.

How's that for needy? ;-)

Holy Glavin! I did message him about it Professor Frink, with the typing and the e-mailing and the send, send....

:)

It's ok, you did put up that nice little message on the 'EpV:R' thread before I sent VincentSmalls that message (I did that about an hour ago) - and I personally thanked you for it too, as shown here:

Mw-hurgn-whey, thanks for the notification of the thread I started up. I must have been too lazy to put one up on here - bless you Proffessor for taking on dissa heavy burden (oh no I have Jar-Jaritis!)

How's that for needy? ;-)

Just kidding man, I really appreciate it. (Oh and brownie points if you spot an error in my reply).

I was just having some fun - although I didn't know you PM'd it to him.  And I did see you thanking me.

It's all good, hey hey hey.

Wait - an error?  Will look for that.

It's alright, Mw-hurgn-whey.

As was I. PM'ing is just too fun, what can I say, lol? Ha :)

Yes an error....my silly little error :)

Ok - two errors.  Misspelled "Professor" and misspelled "Mw-hurgen-whey"

I kid, I kid.

:)

Yes! 'Professor' was the error since it was obviously misspelt...er...misspelled. And the latter one that you identified as a possible error is actually not an error as such - just a variation of the popular sound :)

And finally... Return Of The Jedi. Hmmm.... it's a shame McQuarrie didn't do any real poster work for Return Of The Jedi as the stuff out there just doesn't seem to be quite as interesting as what I got for the other covers. I simply went for battle-tasticness instead of the artwork we've seen countless times on covers before! Just edited an odd poster I could only find in diminished res. Anyone got a hi-res version of this pic? Front may change if I come across something really special and logo on front my change to original classic type too. Anyway... I'm beat now. Enjoy all...

Not exactly super hi res, but this may be better than what you have (click for larger):

 

Also here's the ESB 10th anniversary poster in hi-res:

 

Would you mind posting your ANH source pic? I'd really like to have that image.

 

Edit: Hmm, the image-resizer appears to be broken?

Thanks satanika! That hi-rez version of the Jedi poster is exactly what I've been looking for. Will spruce up my cover when I get a chance. And apologies to Frink if I missed thanking him for sending me the thread... not on top of my s*** lately!

It ain't a particularly big image I was working off for the ANH cover... another poster I would love to find H-rez!
