From Dusk Till Dawn...

Just working on a custom cover for my two From Dusk Till Dawn SE's (US and UK) and thought it wouldn't hurt to post a early work in progress here... so here it is



Comments and flames are welcome

Very nice indeed.

Are you planning to list the specs on the back, or leave it as it is?

Thanks and if you show up more often on AIM I might even tell you my BIG secret

@mattglobe
The final version will have all specs on the back! It's currently just a work in progress and only the front is pretty close to what I want it to look...

Yeah, I've been slackin'. Still having some bugs in my system I'm hoping to correct with some upgrades. I'm also in the process of moving into my new house this week so I'm a little tied up for FREE time.

By the 1st week of July I hope to be back on schedule...

BTW, it looks good. I also like the changes you made to the JAWS case. Looks ALOT better that way.

Looks excellent. But one question. Why is the summary indented? It looks kinda funny, unless you are going to add an image or something. Especially since it is only 1 paragraph.

Thanks But I don't really get your point What about the image of the beautifull and half naked Santanico Pandemonium (Selma Hayek) dancing with her snake in the neon flames???

Current cover looks great, but a 2nd vote for Santanico!
(or maybe a trial mock up, so we can see if it would work
better than the current layout)
(Do you need a screen capture?)

@alfredsson maybe, but I wouldn't count on it, cause I don't have any of the two sequels on dvd... I actually haven't even seen them yet...

The sequels are VERY so-so.

Will you be making a US R-1 version?

Hey Sebastian, nice job, I like the little trick of adding a space or two here and there to make the text block nice and even.

I just spent an hour rewording text on my new 'Clash of the Titans' cover and still it's only close to even. Guess I'll have to go in and add a few spaces to finish the job.

Force Justified? All it is, is a little button you push instead of being left or right justified. Look for it, it might save you some time.

Sorry to bump this thread up from several months back, but I just picked this movie up, and I remember a that someone did this cover.

How come it isn't available to download anymore?

Well the reason for it was once to be found here
http://pub128.ezboard.com/fdvdepotcu...cID=1289.topic
but since there's no freedom of speech there I will simply repost the original text here, because I think people shouldn know the truth...

Ok here's my original uneditied post:
"Heya guys,

just wanted to let you know that my unprofessional booty and my covers are leaving here. I don't know if you really care or wonder why, but just in case I'm going to let you know why. I bet Matt
would say that we had some creative differences that couldn't be solved, but I would like to stick with the truth here. So the truth is that I got fired, or "voted of the island" how he put it. That wouldn't actually been a big problem, since I wasn't really doing much for the site anyway. The real problem is just the way HOW he did it. Well so I bet you think Matt simply told me that I was fired, like any normal person would do... but nope... didn't happen. I had to find out myself after I tried to access the admin board sunday. I bet you know what happend, I couldn't log in so I send a IM to Matt ascking him what happened to my admin rights. Well what followed was a list of blatant lies from Matt (a little excerpt):

mdXtreme3d: yeah, the grand council of admins voted you off the island
Sebra75: why didn't anyone tell me?
mdXtreme3d: I didn't realize you hadn't been notified else I would have
Sebra75: well no one told me or I wouldn't have asked you...
mdXtreme3d: yeah I got that :-)
mdXtreme3d: basically your tirade against jack got you voted off
Sebra75: who voted against me?
mdXtreme3d: everyone except myself and shaun, who didn't vote
Sebra75: thats nice...
Sebra75: even Darth?
mdXtreme3d: everyone felt that you went too far again, and that your actions were reflecting poorly on the rest of the staff

Believe it or not pretty much anything he said was a lie. But I had to find that out myself... again. I guess it's somewhat understandable that I was a little pissed at the other admins after that. The "funny" part comes now. Some of the admins didn't knew there was a vote, and oh gosh they didn't even cast their vote. Hmm... strange isn't it? Well after a little time it became obvious that Matt made the decision himself and just was trying to hide behind the other admins asses. Nice move wasn't it? Every weasle mommy would be proud if her son would pull such a move... but wait, after I asked him why, he had this to say:

mdXtreme3d: and I didn't lie to you about anything

Ok bad move... but wait a even worse decission followed:

mdXtreme3d: no, I discussed it with several of the other admins. some of them emailed me and recommended your admin status be revoked, and others I talked to on IM. Dagon wasn't one of them

Hmm so he didn't lie to me... yep sounds true! LOL... well the end of it all is, that I asked our grand and noble Jedimaster to remove all my covers from the site, because I really don't wish to be associated with a liar or his website. Don't know if anybody can understand this, since I seem to be a damn evil person, but well that's what happened and I think you guys had a right to know So trust no one and don't worry.. you can still get my covers for free from my homepage

Oh and a BIG THANK YOU to all the admins that didn't want me to leave and stood up for me!
THANK YOU GUYS AND GURLS!

Ok I think thats about it, so goodbye and cheers,

Sebastian"

Oh and I don't think it's dirty laundry like Matt put it, it's a good example of the person he really is...

My cover can still be found on my private Homepage in the "my stuff" section Hope that helps...

Sebastian
