Indiana Jones Anthology by shokxone-studios Indiana Jones Anthology by shokxone-studios
The complete title is actually "Indiana Jones and the Complete Anthology", but the text entry box wouldn't let me fit all of that.

So having seen Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - which I LOVED...DEAL WITH IT - the idea for the collage on the front popped into my head about the time I was leaving the theater. Y'know how sometimes you have a specific image in your head, but your end result, easy on the eyes though it may be, just doesn't quite resemble what you wanted? This is maybe the closest I've ever gotten to that original vision. By the way, that's a burning Nazi flag underneath Indy, NOT a medallion.

Wanted to go for something Drew Struzan-ish - not an easy task, knowing Struzan himself could do far better... in a cave... with a box of scraps (oh, wait, I'm mixing superheroes, aren't I?). Still, it was interesting experimenting with combinations of filters to find what could best resemble that hand-drawn magic of his.

For anyone who cares, the complete Spielberg quote on the back is as follows:

"There was the willingness to allow our leading man to get hurt and to express his pain and to take pratfalls and sometimes be the butt of his own jokes. Indiana Jones is not a perfect hero, and his imperfections, I think, make the audience feel that, with a little more exercise and a little more courage, they could be just like him." – Steven Spielberg

The Temple of Doom is my favorite but all 4 are equally good, and I was obsessed with all these movies as a kid

That's a really great cover! Liked it very much...specialy the dark background gives Indiana a serious feeling, like going through adventures isn't that great most of the time....

I really like it, but if I may suggest something. I think on the front cover, Indiana's hat should go outside the lines, to match the original covers....gives him a bigger iconic importance too. In every cover his hat is the first thing you notice...it's just an opinion:)

wth indy is wearing a nazi medallion !, you really should be more carefull with that you know, imagine this as a product on the shelfs, first thing people glance over.
But i liked, and would print it as a custom box cover if you had made it a spread.

Nicely Done! :D

May I ask what was the background image that you used? I always have the biggest trouble trying to find an "old looking" map.

Just a stock image of an old map overlayed on a leather texture. I think I found it at: [link]

This came out really well. I love how all the treasures are grouped together and the villains on the back.
