    Charro DVD/VCD cover (jewel case format)

    Bogar?on asked for a cover for the Charro movie and so I unearthed a cover I made about a year (or two) ago. Some of you may have seen it online at ep-tunes, but the version here has higher resolution pix. Moreover I eliminated a slight fault and exchanged some pix on the frontcover backside.

    Hope you like it.

    Caught this design on ep-tunes some time ago (as you say) - nice use of the original movie poster artwork. That being the case, I guess you could argue the guy (or gal) that layed out the movie poster did some of the designing on this one but you still put together a very nice package, expading on the original idea.

    Then again, you may have had to do a lot of behind the scenes work on placement of the elements of the original poster, repair etc - so please do elaborate on that if it was the case.

    Nice work - if you fancy a challenge it would be great to have this design converted into a traditional DVD case size cover.

    Thanks for your comments.

    As you say, the design is not mine. I just expanded the idea of the original movie poster which I like very much. As a matter of fact it is the only Elvis item on my wall.

    I had not thought about posting it here, because I did not put too much of myself into it, but when Bogarcon asked for a cover, it was a good opportunity to bring it to his attention.

    I don't think I will make a DVD cover, not in the near future, at least. There are many other projects I would like to work on first.

    Thanks Deke and Albert.

    I will remember your nice words next time we meet on a dusty, lonely street for a shootout.

    Thanks Tommy.

    I hope this cover is to some use for you.

    I once made the cover for a TV-rip (the uncut version running in German TV wirth bright colors and a sharp image), since all other releases are so poor in quality.

    Let's hope we will have a real and well made DVD release for this movie asap.

    @Eve , this is the DVD- label to the WESTLAKE Release ( USA ) in 1999. ( See your picture for DVD cover ! )

    And here is another cover ( front ) of a ( UK- ) DVD .

    [IMG]


    Both versions are in ( standard ) DVD - format !

    >>>

    This is an alternative version of a CD-jewel case- format, perhaps the basis of the other art-works.
