Could someone do Michael Bay’s The Island for me? It’s an old masochistic fetish of mine.
on mac try this, its free and its powerful – GIMP for Mac
I used GIMP for Windows for my covers..
Greenaway’s film is actually getting the Criterion treatment rather soon, but here’s a little something from me in the meantime…
I do love me some Greenaway. I might have to try my hand at a Baby of Mâcon cover later.
Clever Efe, good job.
efe LOVE THAT COVER!
Is that you or Kamer?
wow, these are going from good to AMAZING!! i wish i had this kind of talent…or computer literacy skills! some of these films i haven’t seen but the covers make me wanna go out and buy the non-existant Criterion releases!
that Benjamin Button one is better than the actual cover they’ve got coming out. the Elephant Man cover is, for now anyways, my favorite so far. and The New World cover just makes me wanna scream at Criteiron, WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET THAT ONE, TOO?!?!?!
Samatha, i love what you did with the Jesse James cover…
Does anyone know of a fake cover on the internet with the side bar with the year 1992? I am working on oen but have just used the pictures from criterion.com but there is no recent 1992 release
no, but I will do this five minute hack, just for you.
Back in 1979 Robert S. Fiveson directed a low-budget sci-fi-horror flick called Parts: The Clonus Horror.
The Island is a direct, uncredited rip-off of the film.
The Island was in no way authorized by Fiveson or his Clonus co-producer Myrl A. Schreibman. To this day the grievance festers in a legal no man’s land, with a big fat studio (and their many many lawyers) keeping a heavy lid on any claims of plagiarism, tying the whole argument up in intellectual property red tape, even though it’s painfully obvious that this is theft.
Wishful thinking that the mass corporate Hollywood machine might for once credit the original creative source behind their uber-budget rip-off.. But to quote from The Island itself—-
“Well, you know when you want something really bad, and you close your eyes and you wish for it? God’s the guy that ignores you.”
I haven’t even been changing the years on mine. I’ve just been copying preexisting Criterion DVD covers with the colors I’m looking for and superimposing them over my images. I’m laaazy.
Samantha, ya but there isn’t an existing one with the year 1992 and I don’t know how to change one without it.
So my whole drawing idea was better in theory than in reality. It is very obvious the picture is pencil. No matter I will still post it…
Also JP wow your EWS cover rocks.
I love it.
Nice work, raw. Am enjoying the originality in many of these covers, people pushing at their own vision.
—This is a bold gesture. I like that it’s obviously hand drawn, not a pastiche of someone else’s ideas.
AND THAT IS HOW IT’S DONE!!!! NICE Clonus Horror cover, old man, I wholeheartedly approve!
Drew, that is original and fantastic.
I had a few sketches from a long time ago, you are pushing me to hunt them now…
learning from the masters …
awww….still can’t fix my criterion logo.
Guess the film! I don’t know how to work with text.
Celine and Julie?
huzzah! I’m trying to fashion a Let The Right One In
shouldn’t that read “the” charles laughton film?
or, “a film by charles laughton”
or better yet, “charles laughton’s the night of the hunter”
I see no point and vow to never change it.
I do like that Fargo idea.
Wow! Love That Night of the Hunter!
But the way it’s phrased suggests Laughton made other films.
I think there’s still time for him to crank out another one, corpses have directed before, just look at Clint Eastwood:
Still going strong!
…i think the phrase suggests that Charles Laughton directed the picture, which makes sense because he did. it is, indeed A Charles Laughton film, AS WELL as Charles Laughton’s only film.
Let’s see if I did this right:
