I see emptiness... Or is this the issue we use our imagination?! :)

06-05-2009, 12:14 PM
It's looking kind of sparse lol.

Can't wait to see it.

06-05-2009, 12:20 PM
Try again! Larry

This one was even better than my imaginary one! Kudos Larry and I assume Ben for the reviews!

06-05-2009, 02:28 PM
Well Paul? Well Shane? I can't wait to hear their comments!

I got to say and its not because us Bama Boys are on the cover but this has got to be my favorite cover!!!!!! I am blown away!!!!!!!! Shane and its man Larry thats freekin awsome!! Shane this time!!!!

****NOTE TO EVERYONE WHOS BEEN FEATURED**** I got to thinking about it and I love all the covers! they are one of my favorite parts of the magazine. I don't want to come off as this is better than anyone who has been featured past or future. Hell they all are great! But anytime I see anything to do with a skull or spider anyone that knows me will tell you thats my two favorite haunt items!

Looks great Larry, congrats Paul and Shane! If you guys ever come down to the beach in Gulf Shores let me know. I'll buy Paul some beers and Shane I guess I will buy you a root-beer! LOL Congrats guys.

The cover looks great Larry! Any previews of whats inside???

06-05-2009, 09:27 PM
Not that I've seen all the covers, but of those I've seen, this is by far my favorite. The flaming skull definately stands out.

06-05-2009, 09:33 PM
Who ever thought of using the skull for the cover is an genius!!!! Best cover I have ever seen. Great graphics great presentation. Awesome.

I would have to agree with Shane, Terrormasue and Haunted Memphis. All the covers have been great but this is my favorite one so far because of the awesome flaming skull and bold graphic nature of the whole image. I love evil looking skulls. Shane, this one's for you....since you like skulls. Here are a few big ones I'm working on right now. They are only half done but you get the idea. I spent a few minutes in Photoshop for the last flaming one. Your cover by Brainstorm was the inspiration for the effect.

You and Paul will definitely have to put this Hauntworld cover in a frame and get Chuck and Doug to autograph them! You guy's have done it again.
I have said it before. Larry what on earth would you do without these guys? Awesome job on the concept and finished art. I can't wait to read about both of the haunts.

Yeehawwwww! And that's from a Northerner! Excellent cover!

06-06-2009, 06:24 AM
This is a really cool cover but I liked the recent Netherworld one slightly better, that awesome werewolf and the light blue colored letters was a nice contrast. This one is cool though, especially the nod to the South and the battle flag great concept!

Eric that is sweet! Man on man that would make an awsome poster! I was looking at the other ones you were starting that you posted in a thread and I love it. I can do some neat things but not for sure I could use a dremel tool like that anyway that takes some real talent but then again look whos using it duh!

I have always enjoyed the skulls you have posted in the past and I love them. I can say this Graystone has a ton of skulls attached to bodies lol I would say well over 50! And Ben can tell ya hundreds of just skulls! Anyway I love it!!!!!!!!!

Dark that was another one of my favorites Ben has always been able to shine on his signature characters. Shane and its Eric you can autograph the skull and send it to me to sit by my autographed magazine! Shane this time!!!!

What I find to be a nice touch is the addition of Alabama's state flag in the cover.

Eric that skull is whats badass! The cover on the new H.W is cool but not the best. I think my favorite is the Edge of Hell issue. Im big on skulls too. And grim reapers ect. Eric you should put together a video or dvd on your skulpting and prop making it would be awesome I would buy it for sure.

06-06-2009, 12:32 PM
WOW! Very nice job on the cover! I can't wait to get mine. Larry,is there any way we could get a large poster-like cover of that? Everyone at the Manor will be excited to see that,and read the articles. Well done!

06-06-2009, 01:51 PM
Looks great, can't wait to read about the bama boys.

06-06-2009, 06:54 PM
Thanks guys,

Shane, I'll bring your autographed poster to your party in St. Louis, lol! Damon, you can get this info for free on the HHA help desk if you are a member. I have an exclusive post detailing this process all the way through till October each week.

Back to the cover, I just got back from working on the haunt and looked at it again. The design, color scheme and execution of all the elements with the type work outstanding together. I like big bold designs like this one over trying to crowd tons of stuff in there. I know a cover like this is successful when I don't get sick of looking at it after a while. I can't wait to see the printed copy to pick out more detail, they must have a ton of layers on there in Photoshop. All the lightning bolts, the smoke, skull with effects and flag with texture just to name a few. I tend to analyze stuff like this because I work in Photoshop a lot. I'd like to see Brainstorm put out a DVD or Hauntworld article on their techniques someday. It might be cool to see an article on just how they created this cover from scratch.

I look forward to seeing or reading about all Shane's skulls and hearing about Atrox Factory. I know these magazines are a lot of work but well worth it for the industry.

Anyway, thanks to Larry for raising the bar with the magazine, Ben for writing the features and to Brainstorm for hitting this one out of the park!

Eric! That would make for a good story on how it all comes together! Shane and its I am still loving the cover! Shane this time.

06-11-2009, 01:51 PM
Larry, Ben anyone got any previews of whats on the inside. I liked Erics idea is it possible? Shane and its wanna give us a hint? Shane this time.

06-15-2009, 11:02 AM
This really is a cool cover I love the skull! Looks like the issue from House of Shock back in the day but better!

Excellent cover! And congrats to the Alabama haunts, Atrox Factory and Graystone Manor!
