    Now this is something REALLY different - but it looks absolutely awesome!
    And I'm absolutely stunned by the way you did it and the techniques you used.
    It's fantastic!

    Okay, Ron. Thanks again for your detailed response.

    I love these discussions which go beyond specific covers.

    As for the definition what is "new" or not we already uttered our controversial opinions in the Flaming Star thread, but I am quite sure we will come back to that again at some later opportunity.

    Wow!! What a great cover!! VERY different, and it could have bombed. But everything works so weel together, what I think keeps together the design is the fact that it is very welldone. You can tell that a lot of time and effort has gone into every little part of it.

    I really like the touch with the coffee stain, I have tried something similar before but didn't manage to pull it off looking realistic so I gave up. They way you did the back was very creative, could have been a fun idea and bad in reality bu tyour skills made it look good. Well I could go on about this design forever, but that would be unneccisary.

    I just wanted to give you my 2 cents about the design. I always appreciate it when people are trying to go there own way. Don't ever be afraid to post your designs again... when designers are tryingt o do something different it should always be applauded, wheter the attempt succeeds or not. This time you very well succeded!!

    PS. I'm not sure, but was it my "C'mon kids, lets turn of the TV and listen to some good music!"-design (http://www.tcb-world.com/showthread.php?t=4309) you were refering to? If so, I am very flattered and can tell that you really got the feeling of a design I was looking for. Unfortunatly I ran out of time... and I don't think my talents quite stretch as far as yours do.

    Little Sister, don't you ...

    ... know how dangerous it is to flatter an old man like me.
    Anyway, thank you very much for your laudatory comments.

    And you are perfectly right about your cover as my source of inspiration. That's it!

    I didn't find it here, because I was only half-heartedly looking for a non-Elvis cover in this forum. The sellotape stuff and the informal look of your design started it all off. The rest was only a combination of some ideas I had been carrying around me for a while.

    I can imagine that a lot of hard work went into this but the simplicity of the design is brilliant.


    I like this very much

    Thanks Gerrit, ElvisJohn and Michelle. I am glad that you like it.

    However, I am somewhat struck that so many people utter their approval for this design. It is true, that I invested some time in designing this one, but my cover for Enter the Dragon swallowed at least two hours more, because it was much more difficult to realize. Sadly enough, that design passed by almost unnoticed here in comparison to this EOT cover, although it contained some new elements, too.

    just looking back over old posts and found this stunning cover!!!!

    i love this cover Manhattoe,its a shame people had to compare it to their own covers and do big analysis of what they think inspired you,who cares???


    love the original ideas you have inputted into the cover,everything is **** cool .i look forward to seeing more of your covers in the future...

    i have to say i found it funny when ron said this: '' The Gray layout basically looks the same as my own '' firstly i didnt realise you can copyright a colour these days plus after comparing the two covers i found not one comparison apart from the fact there elvis covers ,lol!

    Thanks Aron (or Aaron?), I am glad you like it.

    As for all this talk about inspiration andsoforth I really don't mind anybody about pointing to his or her own efforts.

    We all get our inspiration from somewhere, but in my view it is wrong to watch out for some superficial similarities like colors, round corners, usage of three instead of two pix etc. pp.

    As I wrote above, one of Little Sister's cover inspired me here, although our final products do not have much in common. I think Jeanno made a cover, that bore resemblance to this one here. I really don't mind. Quite the contrary, I feel flattered by it. Jeanno did not copy anything, he only chose a similar approach as a starting point and created something completely different.

    In the end, it is the result that counts. Mere inspiration leads top nothing unless it is filled up with all that careful work on details you have to invest into a good cover design.

    Just browse the list here, there are some more covers here that I made in the course of the last months. Thanks for your interest. I hope I can meet your expectations.

    Yes Aron, maybe it it's time that you show us your new work! Your are posting on the other board your new design(s), so why not here? ( the new one there is the first album Elvis did, a remake of that album...) find that a little strange...

    Please forgive me asking this silly question, but which board are you talking about? Is there a new one?

    So why not tell Gerrit Chris' reason for leaving this board.

    If you don't do it, I do it.

    Chris was annoyed by continual remarks about "inspiration" and "stealth of ideas", and other types of "discussion" that maginalized design questions for the sake of vanity. (Before anybody feels inclined to instrumentalize my phrase: I am not judging whether the accusations brought fourth against Chris were right or wrong.)

    **** guys, Chris is a loss to this board and, personally, I would that he came back. We were all here, and now we have broken apart.

    And yet, many postings here still seem to be motivated by irrelevant and silly questions such as "Who is the best designer here?"and "Who owes whom for which idea?". Let's talk about Elvis and cover design issues, and let's forget those trifles.

    As you see, I am annoyed myself.

    I didn't want to bring the whole subject regarding Chris up again, just informed gerrit about Chris' own forum. And it's a real shame that he is not longer on the tcb-world team! But on the other side...he did work on his board while he was still a moderator here...he could at least inform Albert on this, Albert gave him his webspace, moderator functions here on TCB-world..And if he had some problems with some remarks or who knows what else, he could sorted it out with some PM's to the person he the problems with. And yes..PLEASE let's focus on the covers again, let's discuss the designs!! That's what this board is all about!! And on a final note we were NOT talking about Chris here but about Aron.

    Thanks, Tommy.

    There is a wide variety of opinions about this cover. Some people don't like, some do.
    I am glad you belong to the latter sort.
