Not perfect but here's the Creature cover. I cropped this from a scan of a Spanish VHS cover. :)



Also noticed some of the links to some of my past few posts are now broken. Don't know why. Doe this site not allow https?? Hopefully my links in this post will remain. I'll try to repost some of what I post previously at another time. For fun I did go back and edit that chart thing we had. ;)

Don't know what you mean? All files and pages start with http. We can only post files in our messages, though. No pages.

I guess itís just hit or miss at times. Some of the last few images I posted that are broken I linked from postimage.org but my decided not to go that route this time. Whether that will be an advantage or not I donít know.

Is that Creature an image of the original painting, or from some other source?

Both I suppose?? I cropped it from a scan of a Spanish VHS cover since itís presently the only clean copy of that photo I could find. This isnít the scan but it was this edition.

Been wanting to do this for a while now so here it is. All the Classic Collection promos in one video! :D Quality varies due to sources.

I know I haven't been posting as much in here lately but I did find these recently and figured I'd share. I was actually trying to make DVD covers based off the Classic Collection covers as far back as about 2008. Here's some early variations I did. I obviously didn't have the textless covers to work with at the time so I tried going in my own direction using whatever resources I could. Now that i have some of the artworks I basically abandoned this concept and instead have been able to make covers that are more faithful to the VHS covers. Keep in mind at the time I did these early variations I didnt have Photoshop like i do now. I did these with Microsoft Paint and PowerPoint. I didnt even bother to use a DVD cover template to get them all size accurate unlike my 'newer' covers. So these are a bit imperfect but a neat twist on the concept given I didnt have the resources I wanted to get these where I wanted them. ;)











Here's a few I never got around to finishing.

Did some updates. MURDERS I finally found a better copy of the back cover still. HOUSE and CREATURE I redid the back cover templates and realigned the text. I also sharped the HOUSE logos. CREATURE I used a copy of the back cover still that has better detail and lighting and also has the production number in the bottom right corner (like on the VHS cover). REVENGE I replaced the side view logo with the squished down version like on the VHS cover and also sharpened the front cover logo.

Two updates.




And a new addition, The Mummy's Hand. I just used the VHS cover for this so not as well put together as some of the other covers Ive done but still pretty nice considering. I used the VHS cover for the back cover as well since I had a difficult time replicating the back cover using the original still.
