So, since I do nothing but play with Photoshop all day at work and get paid for it... I decided to stop mooching off other peoples' artwork and make my own DVD covers.

But I have one question... are there any rules as to what I NEED to put on my covers if I post them here??  Like, I am going ultra-minimalistic on these, but thats how I like them.  If I don't HAVE to include extra certain info on them aside from the title and the fact that it's rifftrax and who's on it, then I'm good to go.

Just wondering so I don't get chewed out for leaving specifics off of my covers.   ;D

I think you can go any which way you can (sorry Clint) on the covers....... no rules.....

Since I have a pattern to maintain now, I only print covers with the following (beyond the obvious must-have of the title on the cover and spine):
- Thinpak
- RiffTrax (or RiffTrax Presents) logo at the top of the spine
- Portraits of the riffers on the spine just below the logo
- Riff number at the bottom of the spine (ie RT-063 for rifftrax, RTP-011 for rifftrax presents). I think there has been a general agreement as to where we are in the sequence, look at covers by Ortega, MrTorso, Axnollouse.
- On the back: The product description blurb for the riff from the website, word-for-word
- The general look and feel of the original cover of the movie, but parodied (although if it's real creative it can be quite off)

And in honor of Hurricane Ike, another natural disaster of a cover.

I don't follow the rules of riff numbers. Instead I use what the Rifftrax people use as their lists (i figure that's the most official list). You can find it on their "all products" page. Look forward to seeing a new face here! By the way, I get internet tomorrow.... so my cover is coming soon. It's sad, not many covers in here yet!

After uploading it.... I saw some minor problems.... those have been fixed and reuploaded. Enjoy! I'd recommend re-downloading it.

More covers to come!

I was wondering what was up with Kevin in the kid's halloween costume, but it totally works on the cover.

I'm still waiting for one of those thinpak covers with the format I really like... Axnollouse? Ortega? MrTorso?

I know this suggestion might be skating on thin ice (heh), but I can't help thinking that it would be funny to have the picture of the statue of Liberty mostly buried in ice (like several covers for this have), and then have small pictures of Kevin Murphy as Bobo, and Bill as Brain-Guy, and have Brain-guy saying:  "We finally did it!", and Bobo saying "YOU MANIACS!  YOU FROZE IT UP!  DAMN YOU!  DAMN YOU ALL TO Some Very Very Cold Place..."
