Hello all, 


As some of you know, I have completed my X-Men: The Last Stand fan edit (titled The Final Cut) and will be needing a cover for it.  

If someone is interested in designing one, please do!  I need your help. 

DETAILS: 
I wouldn’t mind a simple and effective cover.  What I always thought of was one aking to the red themed cover for Days of Future Past: The Rogue Cut, tainted blue instead.  

What would be fantastic would be a cover where we see Wolverine, Beast, Iceman, Professor X, Magneto stand and somewhere in the background, but visible nonetheless, Jean Grey in her red dress.  The red dress would be the only element not tainted in blue. 

This is only my two cents, but please advance other concepts, fellas!

That idea sounds real good. I'll see what I can do. :)

Are you wanting any specific text/fonts? Do you have a synopsis to put on the back?

The perfect text font would be the one from the original 2003 X2 poster, but I don’t know which one exactly it is and if it is possible.  As a second choice, definitely Bank Gothic.  I can provide a synopsis to put on the back.

“Experience X-Men: The Last Stand as never before with this final cut of the film.  Alternate scenes, a new colour grade and a tighter pace give new life to the tragic story of the Dark Phoenix and bring the experience more in line with that of the first two films.  Behold the Phoenix!” 

Apply changes where you feel the need to ;)

Not sure if you'll like this idea, but here's my go. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a good poster focusing on Jean.

Increased Saturation on her dress, desaturated everything else.

New cover based on the Japanese version. This works well if it's called the phoenix cut.

@"Canon Editor", here's a draft of a DOFP-esque X3 cover. I've made it blue-ish as requested. If you like the direction let me know and I'll pursue it more.

Wow, these are all amazing: THANK YOU GUYS.  Dig, I find the direction not too bad, but not too simple either.  If tweaked a little more, it could work. 
Wow, Ryaney!  Your covers are FANTASTIC.  I always loved the Japanese poster, even though it looks mirrored, somewhat…  :dodgy:
I love the poster with Jean Grey’s dress oversaturated.  That is exactly the feel I was looking for.  Thank you.

A suggestion: the X-Men subtitle font is bank gothic. In case y'all were trying to match it.

I just sourced a PNG from Google images for the logo and text. The rest are all cropped and overlapped. Looks like Canon prefers the Ryan posters so I'll let Mr. Ry run with it.

Thanks, but the font we're trying to match (for me) is the "ROGUE CUT" font.  :)

No, I really like your style, just saturate it as tad bit and oversaturate Jean. :)

I'll await direction if you're interested.

@"theryaney" poster and case art should reflect the same image, so I'd not want to invest the extra time if Canon is liking yours, which look great btw. I just wanted to throw the option of his DOFP blue request out there.

Okay, @"DigModiFicaTion". It still looks really fantastic though.  :p
