I did a better job matching the same width of the Spine title as Episode 1's and redid the fade on the back's teaser poster in the corner to compensate for it being darkened compared to Episode 1's.

Bashed out two in a day while watching old Craig Ferguson clips.

I'll be revising a few colors and sizes one I'm done so they all match.

I’m not sure that “A STORY” will fit inside the spine area for your Rogue One cover. Also, still on the spine, is that a Disney Blu-ray logo on top? If so, I’m not sure this will fit inside the spine area either and you might want to consider another logo on top since you already have the Blu-ray logo at the bottom. Maybe chose another logo since you can’t put the 20th Century like all the others? I would suggest Lucasfilm, but you have it at the bottom. Another thing I've noticed is that your Lucasfilm and Blu-ray logos at the bottom of your spines seems to be different sizes from one cover to the other. Or, my eyes are playing games with me, lol

Other than that, I like your new font and I don’t really have anything else to suggest. Great effort on all of these, very nice!

:wss

Also I understand the reasoning behind the roman numerals being horizontal, IMHO it would look better if it were to follow the rest of the title being vertical.

It is an absolutely beautiful set though. :)

The different logo sizes have been corrected. I changed the sizes on several of them to create more room for titles and forgot to correct the rest of them when I resumed work.

As for the spines, the Rogue One and Bonus Materials discs are sized for a 14MM spine vs the rest which are 12mm spines and the logos definitely fit.

I have altered the Rogue One to a few alternate Disney logos up top. I want to keep a Disney logo at the top in some fashion to delineate between the rest being produced under 20th Century.

I wanted to integrate the castle into it, as I find the Disney logo a little too plain so I integrated the classic castle with the signature logo.

You could put the castle at the top and have the Disney small at the bottom above the lucasfilm logo.

I'd go smaller on the roman numerals they seem a bit big atm.

Personally I feel the synopsis and features are too close to the gold lines, I would nudge them down and to the right a bit so there's a bit of breathing space.

I did a test image with the Disney logo split up and it looks a little too busy down at the bottom. I also looked at making the numerals even smaller but at the current size, they look really good as a focal point of the spine.

I did add some space on the synopsis/descriptions which i do think looks better. I'm hesitant to make it much more or it'll be a real problem to keep the text readable and fit in the space.

I prefer the first layout with the Disney logo on top (no split). You did a fine job with them all, they are perfect!

Re: Star Wars Series

Postby Duotronic93 » Dec Sun 09, 2018 8:04 pm

I'm going to change the spacing on the synopsis/descriptions on them all to be consistent with the Rogue One I posted and then do a test print tomorrow to see how they feel on the case. After that, I'll probably consider them done.

I appreciate all the helpful criticism and suggestions from the community. I'm happy I stumbled across xShoty's wonderful comic series of covers and had to join for them!

Update: I did a test print and replaced the star field on the back with a new, more vibrant one as the original one barely showed up after printing. I consider them done and will be uploading them accordingly. Thanks again for all the help!
