The Legend of the Lone Ranger (1981)

Postby ctaulbee » May Tue 22, 2018 5:35 pm

Filling a request.




This is a old title and the time I spent on it was likely way more than it deserves based on it's merit as a film as it's not very good, but it does have a cult following.  Obviously the resources are few and those that exist are of low to poor quality which raises the challenge bar for making a decent cover and that is why I decided to do it, I like the challenge.

Here are some of the resources used to make this, the front keyart is from the original studio poster and was specifically asked for in the request.

Wow, that must have been quite the challenge indeed! I agree with Wys, the back is spectacular considering what you had to work with!

Thank you very much for this cover.  It's one I've been looking to get for a long time.  I could not understand why Shout! didn't use it when they released the blu ray a few years ago.
