Young Frankenstein

Well, after MUCH work, I finally got my Young Frankenstein cover to a place where I'm ready to post it and get feedback.

Here's what I did:
- removed actors from front to make it more simple/elegant
- recentered title on front cover (for some reason the original is about half and inch off center)
- removed the Special Edition header (the original and rerelease were the same disc just new coverart)
- put shots of the 5 main actors on the back
- created a new Bonus Features box with same font and color scheme
- reworded some of the items in the Bonus Features box to make more sense
- redid the credits so they are more readable
- created a new town scene from 20 frames from different parts of the movie

Like I said before comments and questions are welcome.

Wow! That is really nice work.

As always, I prefer the "less is more" approach, and that seems to be what you're going for here. I really like the town scene on the back.

Wow! That's fantastic! I agree with Eric... the town scene looks amazing!

Well done! When can we download it?

Thanks for the kind words guys. It did take a bit of time, but I think it was worth it in the end...I'm goign to let it sit a bit and then see if there is anythign else that I want to do with it, then I'll submit it to DVDcoverart.com.

It is a great cover.
The only thing I might comment on is the small picture
of Igor on the spine. Is there some other idea that might fit??
Why pick one character over another?
Maybe a picture of the lab or the table as it was hit by
the lightening?
Just an idea???
