Thanks to all who voted for me and congrats to all who enetered as there were some really nice covers.

I had trouble choosing between guys and dolls and jaws
I'm unable to do any requests due to limited time at the moment. I will however try to post new covers when i can and update collections where possible as well.

All my work is exclusive to customaniacs please do not post elsewhere

congrats to all those that won - I like that edgar cover...

an admission, and I hope Kampar doesn't consider this as a negative comment, but I very rarely vote in these competitions (and I didn't vote in this one) - the main reason being that I don't feel qualified to judge as I don't know whether they've used existing artwork from a retail and just tweaked it, or built a new cover from the ground up... I don't make or print movie covers, so i've no great prior knowledge of the artwork available...

I can have an opinion as to whether a cover design is good or not in my view, but I don't have the time/inclination to see what artwork is available and hence judge how much effort has gone into the design... and I don't want to blindly vote without being able to tell the work involved.

anyway, that's my opinion - hopefully not perceived as negative.
Please do not upload any of my covers or labels to any other site - Janusdesign

^^^ I usually can spot retail posters/artwork pretty easily. Now I admit, I prefer when they're tweaked or better yet when it's a complete different design altogether but really that's my own taste and I don't have a problem with retail posters. What makes a great cover imo is the overall layout, how things are 'assembled' together, from graphic elements to text and logos. I always look at them as a whole. If it happens to use retail artwork and it works, fine, and if it's more complex then I'll appreciate the effort even more.

My 0.5 cent ;)
