Love the grey Bayonetta cover, the R&CFTOD cover, and the new MGS4 cover too. (15RC, DarkGiygas, dentoomw). Everything in here is great.
I'll be downloading the TOB cover from TheCongressman1, that'll print in my next batch... I know I'd use the 3 above if I still owned the games or hadn't already done the super white MGS4 minimalist cover. BTW, thanks again DarkGiygas, now I don't have to try my hands on the FTOD one... that one is probably better than any slop I'd have generated.
I was thinking of doing a contest for custom covers with the reward like $25-50 to Amazon provided by me.
Games would be agreed upon before but it would be games coming out between a certain time frame. The contest would end in a few months to give time for artwork and such to come out. Creators could put up w/ they felt were their 2 best creations. So you over the course of the next 3 months you could make 8 new covers but at the end you owuld tell me which 2 you want submitted. I would say you shouldn't limit the covers to be created to specific games, all that stuff does is stifle creativity for those who don't care/don't have art for/don't have any interest in said games chosen. It should be any game released from Sept to December IMO. And maximum 2 covers for submissions sound good.
Voting would be done in a separate thread that I would create. Agreed.
Can I get some feedback on this from the custom cover creators? I figure it would end in early December. Voting would be open for a week or so, would finalize time before opening obvoiusly.
What I need:
-Games. Dark Souls, Skyrim, MW3, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, etc. What are the other big releases from Oct - Dec or should I just let any game be entered? As mentioned before, you should allow every game, I can't see a reason why you should limit it.
-Time Frame: Was thinking games released between Mid September / October and November 31. Also mentioned before, should be from Sept 1st to the end of the year IMO
-Submissions: 2 per creator? Sounds good.
-Voting: Point system or one gaf poster gets one vote? Point system, which is better because it allows common opinions, although not top choices, to still receive credit and have a chance at placement. This is why point systems are used. 5pts for #1 choice, 3pts for #2 choice, 1pt for #3 choice, and that's all. Or something of the sort.
This is my first shot at a custom cover...it's for Time Crisis Razing Storm - for me the real attraction was Deadstorm Pirates, which is barely even mentioned on the retail box. The little pirate logo comes from a cd by "Alestorm" and one of the ships is from art by Howard Pyle (couldn't figure out who painted the other one).
Games: Any game may qualify as long as its release date falls between July 1 - November 30.
Submission Dates: Any previous cover and any cover made and POSTED up to November 30th can qualify.
Submissions per GAF poster: You may pick 2 covers to submit. If you pick Bayonetta PS3 that means Bayonetta PS3, not PS3 and 360. You must submit your 2 selections to me by November 30th as I will be making the thread on December 1st or 2nd for the contest. Voting will be open a week from the time the thread opens.
Voting: Each GAF poster (incluing artists) will get 2 votes. First is worth 2 points, second is worth 1 point. You may vote on a cover only once.
Cover A 
Cover B 
Prizes: Amazon Giftcards!
First place) $40 from me.
Second place) $25 from gdaddygamebot.
In the event that the a poster claims both first and second I will default the 2nd place winner to the 3rd place cover.
I want all covers posted in this thread. So to send your submissions when they're ready, send me a PM with:
1) E-mail address
2) Links to posts containing your selections, please be as specific as possible as to what you're selecting.
Read post #4 of the tread for any updates. I hope there won't be any changes but if there are they will be made there. When the contest thread goes up in early December nothing can change.
Nah, I just use the touchpad thingy on my macbook pro. I have a tablet I can pull out if I really need to get in there and cut something out, but I don't really use that too often. I'm pretty lazy and if I can even remotely do it with the regular touchpad I'll do that.
Thoese Dead Rising covers are awesome as is that SF4
Anyone know if someone has done a N64 high res template for modern cases? I would like to try my hand at some N64 style covers for some of my Wii games. I'd love to do a goldeneye 007 onr with the Japanese box art for starters.
Forgive me If I asked already my memory is terrible.
