This thread rules.

Has anybody thought of doing this for some DS or PSP games?

It's from the artbook. I found a bunch of scans from a random Chinese forum. I'd just track down a rar of the artbook if I were you.

I know requests are getting heavy but if anyone has the time to do so could someone make a quick minimalist Quantum of Solace cover for ps3?


The effort is much appreciated.

Made some adjustments to my MGS4 cover art. Most likely final. Studied some cover art from other video games. The back art is usually simple or just doesn't have any dominant figures. My previous back cover had too much art.


The cover art below is a perfect example. Thanks for this awesome cover RedSwirl.

My local Staples pulled the "copyright" bullshit, but they would do it since the minimal templates don't usually have copyright notices on them. However, Office Max did a phenomenal job and was $0.40 a sheet cheapers.

I'm preparing to grab some of this awesome covers and send them to a store to print them for me.

I mean... there some seriously awesome covers. How awesome? Let me tell you, so awesome that give me the motivation to open the case and PLAY the game!

Will post them after having all done.

Ps: COD 4 MW1, MW2 and Black Ops have some awful covers... If someone wanna give them a shot would have my humble gratitude.

Again, thank you all, you have a great talent and taste.

Edit: Oh I see, it's based on someone else artwork. Still, it's very good looking.

Well. Shit has officially begun.

...though I will make one tiny alteration to that template.

*sigh* I'd kept them on there because that's just how the format is. The PS3 and PSN logos are part of the same layer, but I guess I could try to separate them. I'm not making new 3D images for all of them though.

In the PS3 combo template, they are on different layers, for certain.
Not sure if you're using an earlier "minimal only" PS3 template or something?

Gamecube boxes are the same size as DVD cases right? If so the GC template is a little bit off. Might need to make a new 3D template specifically for it.

Not exactly. If you compare a DVD cover with a Gamecube cover it turns out that the Gamecube cover is actually slightly bigger. The dimensions I got were from the Cover Project forums, but I haven't checked if they are exactly that size though. I'm guessing it's right.

Okay. As soon as somebody comes up with a Cube 3D, I'll post what I've made so far.

As for the PSN symbol, I must still be using an old version of the template. I might remove the symbols from some of them, but that's a lot of re-uploading on my part. Maybe I'd e-mail each one to someone requesting or willing to host them,

Sorry for the late reply, was on a trip to NYC for a couple days.

I actually just googled the game name and found a wallpaper of that, there were others as well, pretty sure they're official art.

Didn't bother with spine text yet, as these are just futzing around with random artwork pairings I found for Street Fighter:




Thoughts so far:
(1) I like the one with the gold background for some reason -- moving that to the front might work... I think it's the official Euro cover art maybe?
(2) I need to re-find the SF artwork of Ken/Ryu/Akuma that I took my avatar from.
(3) Maybe the Shinkiro (?) artwork would look better on the back? I'm sad that it cut Cammy off.
(4) I still kind of want to use Cody's official artwork for something, but I don't know that people would like it, since it wouldn't have a large number of the roster like the 2nd version up there does.

The gold background one looks better because it unifies the front/side/back a lot better than the white does, because of the golden tinge in the front of the cover's artwork as well. I don't like the SSFIV logo very much, but I can't suggest any better alternatives for the placement of it. Overall I like your second one much better.

Also I had the art from your avatar somewhere but after sifting through a few folders, I can't seem to find it.

If you want I could try to find the place again where I got all that SF4 art. You're probably just better off tracking down a rar of the art book.

Still, feels weird to me - using art that already was the official box art for another game (SF Anniversary).

Anyway, still waiting for someone to try to make a 3D art and script for the Gamecube template. I've got Cube covers ready and on standby.

The Gamecube case I believe is very similar to a regular DVD cover so you can actually use the PC 3d box script (version 2) on your covers. With the new version of the script it will compensate for any resolution or aspect ratio discrepancy.

I already tried the PC template and it didn't work. Can't find this PC-specific version 2 script you're talking about (I've just been using the 360 script).

Might not be able to post mine for a while anyway since my internet has been crap for the last couple days.
