Ah I didn't mean that in a bad way, I tried so hard to write it so it didn't sound like I'm being an ass - sorry if it came across that way, sometimes I'm not great at writing.

Thanks, I was looking for that effect, guess I didn't do too well, can't seem to get anything bright enough to shine through the lathes, more adjustments to the artificial then,  here's a quicky update, kinda stuck while I piece together a spanning pic worthy.

Looks good Chef, that original flesh you used is from the UK Quad Poster, so it's just studio art and not a custom creation.

I'm not sold on the flesh personally just looks odd to me but for the spine, maybe just span pinhead with a glowing puzzle box? Great work though.

The flesh makes it hard to read the title, also I the outer glow on the "Clive Barker Presents" text doesn't work that well to be honest.

Sorry Chef, but personally, I liked it better before you added the flesh in the front and back. Although it works fine on the spine because you don't have any text. Just my opinion though, it's yours to keep or not.

Personally I have trouble liking the front.
It's just my opinion and so I just wanna try to help, but to me at least, it looks like there are so many hooks it's distracting and the hooks like like hand drawings. Dunno if that was on purpose but it's kind of strange.

Also I think the characters on the front don't look menacing. They look like plastic action figures that are not alive.. I dunno...

Just trying to help so that's my opinion.

yeah, Images are an issue. Nothing out there is full body and very few even slightly worth using... Every cover out there has large head shots of Pinhead, and I hate not being original, so most of the body work is custom bits and pieces. I'll keep working.

Ok, can't say how much I appreciate the words of support thus far, this set is hard for me, cause honestly I didn't care for any of them past the 1st 2 movies, I've tweaked and tweaked and finally I am happy with the result, as the movies continue more and more creatures will be added, at least that's my plan going forward. !st cove then Spine Preview. And again Thanks...
