Dog Soldiers Custom

Heya,

So I decided to make this one because I always thought the original cover made the movie look like one of those direct to video pieces of shite.

Thought this art was pretty cool. I added the wolf shadow on the moon. The original had no such shadow. If you prefer it without let me know, but I think it works here. Also made a blood red color scheme, but it kept reminding me of Thundercats so decided against it. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Original:

Nice design. I love the movie and have watched it 5 or 6 times. The original cover does suck IMO. I would love to see the blood red color scheme. I think the red might look a little better than the orange. Great job again!

Is that an alternate poster or something you whipped up yourself, Buddy? I love it. The only thing I prefer from the original cover is the titling with the bloody dog tags and scratch marks. Oh yeah, and I'd lose that rainbow-colored DVD logo too. Make it a solid color.

Hey thanks cajun and joliom.

It's an alternate poster I found online. I added the wolf shadow over the moon though. But I didn't design the wolf either. Just found a site that had a Dog Soldiers wolf for a proposed comic book that never made it out and I just darkened all the details. I guess I can play around with the dog tags logo and see what it looks like.

The red version is fine without the wolf, but with it looks too much like Thunder...thunder....thunder cats.....HOOOOOOOOOOOOO. When I get a chance I'll post them up so you can see.
