Star Wars DVD Covers — Page 16

Time
Okay, back from a long week at my parents. If someone can point me to a guide on how to create torrents, I'll gladly put up a torrent of all of my covers.

I'd like to see Obi-Skywalker's covers but it appears they are 'temporarily unavailable'. For the record, though, I loathe all the official DVD covers with the exception of the bonus disc cover and the actual box the OT is in.

And TheSessler - I have hi-res Struzan art for all five movies, I'll try to get a torrent up for that when I figure out how.

Thanks, it will be greatly appreciated Ash.

i've been away from the thread for awhile.... who's got the latest set of covers? anyone have disc art?

I really like cerbero's covers. I just wish someone had his covers but instead of the bland fonts for the titles (yes I know they are true to the LD set), someone would use the original graphics for the titles, as seen on posters, old VHS, and the 89 LD set I believe. You guys know what they look like. Anyone do that yet?

chainsawash, looks like you were doing what I was looking for. Although it seems your ROTJ title is a newer one, similar to my 95 VHS set, and not the original. ROTJ was yellow originally

I'll attempt that for you Itchy. It's a good idea. I went over my bandwidth limit so I'll have to email them to you, I'll post back and tell you when I've done it. just give me a rough idea of what you want on the front.

I've got the poster with the original text (which was gray by the way, not yellow) - I can put that up too.

Anybody have a tutorial-type thing for putting up torrents? Anyone?

Okay Itchy, here they are:

That's TR-47 version, let me know what version you want, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send the full files (PNG or JPG).

I've preserved the texture all the way through:

How high-res are your Empire and Jedi logos? I'd love to have them with the "STAR WARS" text on them but mine don't have that. Anyways, I think I like this better than the newer-text one. I'll have to re-print mine now.

I used them at these sizes on the covers, and I made these logos none of them are scans which is why they are black-and-white (with the exception of the ESB logo which is greyscale).

Just in case you want it, here's the ESB logo as I made it before slanting it:

DanB - cool new version of TDC covers, m8.

Is there a version of those TDC covers with all the blue text changed to white out there? (not sure if I dreamt it or not - and if I did dream it I need to take a break from SW for a while )

It's very easy to do. Just open it up in you favourite picture-editing software, mask around the text and change the saturation level to 0%.

Wow, I just came across this site today and I've been impressed by all the great DVD cover designs. So
much so, that I've started designing a few of my own for the "backups" I recently made of "my laserdiscs".
I started off with Cerbero's great work (hope you don't mind) and haven't quite gotten around to
reworking the back of the covers yet, but I'm pretty happy with them so far. I was going for a sort of
Criterion feel for them.

I'll post high-res links once I've finished them and made sure they print ok.

Very nice, Soulflare!

I would be interested in hi res pics.

Thanks guys.

I've updated all three pics to the new back design. I'll see how they
print out on Kinko's color laser printer... assuming that works out, I'll
see if I can get the high-res files online later today.

I would have put "The Original Collection"... mmmmmm.... the Original Collection.

-edit-

By the way does anyone have a lot of high-resolution stuff they could send me? High resolution poto-shots of the poster ("scans"), High resolution screenshots, High resolution promotional artwork?

I'd say nix any "Episode" references and just use the names of the movies, nix the "Revenge" and use "Return", and use something else for Star Wars to match better with Empire and Jedi. I absolutely love the backs and am a little unsure about the "Unauthorized Collection" moniker like DanielB is, but other than those things, they look awesome. It might sound like I'm being overly critical but I was with a DVD cover site for two years (still am but it got shut down for the moment) and we look for all those little details, which is why I insisted on having mine so high-res compared to, specifically, Cerbero's posters on his set, which look fine but don't fit the standards we've set and that I've gotten used to following.

On another note, here's some covers I've seen around the Net. DO NOT ASK FOR THESE AS THEY ARE NOT MINE, I just liked them and figured I would show you guys (not sure about the green ROTJ saber though):




Again, I CANNOT SEND THESE TO ANYONE, they are just examples.

Mine are nearly done entirely, just fine-tuning and tweaking a few things here and there. I included the ESB and ROTJ logos DanielB provided us with, so thanks a bunch for that. They look a ton better now. As for posters, again, give me a little bit, I'll have to get all of them individually up on Angelfire and then post them here, then re-upload and re-post each time AF shuts me down. Wish me luck.

Soulflare, those covers are INCREDIBLE! I am very much looking forward to hi-res copies. And, to think I just printed out some definitive collection covers yesterday (based on the Faces Edition covers) to use with my DigitalFreakNYC set. And I was stoked by those. These, however, are just spectacular. Any plans to do covers for the PT that fit in with these so we can have a custom hexalogy?

Nope, not as yet; Matt is asking for donations to help settle the legal issues right now, but that's about it - we just know that he says the site will be back open once it is settled. I'll go through the forums again and get the back cover pics for you if you want.

ChainsawAsh, those dvd cover ROCK!!! Those are some of the best that I have seen...

Nice one ChainsawAsh, cheers.

Was Lucas (or one of his companies) one of those who responsible for getting the site taken down - and int o the legal side? If so was it the actual posting of the 2004 dvd covers that got it into trouble? (amongst others)

Again, SOMEONE, please start a printing service for those of us that don´t have a color printer.

These covers just keeps getting better and better.
