Custom Cover Art - Minimalist, clean, or alternative box arts for your favorite games

awesome gui!

glad you liked my Halo covers, I dont know of anyone else who used em (feelsgoodman)
I hope they worked out well on your end!

I need to get my entire MGS series customized now, I love the way my Halo shelf looks
Hey they look great so thanks for the good work on all the covers.

Amazing. Here's hoping my PS4 collection looks something like this.
I'm sure it will, these folks are talented

I bought Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands used and unfortunately they had THIS cover.

I'm surprised you didn't get the Steam version of this Raven

...Uplay

Speaking of cases, I didn't like the Valkryia Chronicles default cover since it had the spider-man font on it, so I changed it up.
You mean the red PS3 logo on the spine? I hate that both Demon Souls and Valkyria Chronicles have that issue in my collection. I'm planning on changing the covers for both.

Looks nice but I can't be the only one thinking you're a weirdo for buying physical on PC :p
The PC ones are all digital actually, I don't own any physical copies of those games.

I just felt that, when I was displaying my games, there was a massive hole in some of my favorites due to digital distribution. Many of these games were actually widely distributed in physical form anyways, acquiring those boxes at this point would be a far more expensive, and ultimately pointless, endeavor at this point.

I hope this thread gets flooded with PS3 covers for games like Drakengard 3 that are adopting the new box art standard. That 'blue' bar on the top should have been reserved for PS4 to differentiate it from PS3 games.

Got some PS2 and PC covers printed out. I'm not finished yet, but decided to print out the first 20 or so.

Wait, no offense but why are you printing out covers for digitally purchased games on Steam?

I have fun creating these covers and I would like my collection to encompass all of my favorite games.
Getting the physical versions of these PC games would not only be expensive, but also pointless. This is the next best thing.

Can totally relate. Always got asked why I would do something like this when I talked to some friends about the cover thing. "This doesn't make any sense! They are digital! And Arcade Games! Why are you doing this?" :D

My gf sees it as one of my hobbies, I have fun setting them up on Facebook and throwing them up on the shelf.

you guys are so good .... really appreciate all this work , im no designer but i think a great idea would be to have a child of light cover seeing as it only has a digital release and has beautiful art to play with :)

I actually already have the Steam version of it, just wanted to get the PS3 version since I got a PS3 again recently and it was one of the games I had played but never finished back when I had my original PS3, I just wanted to make sure I completed it for completions sake.

You mean the red PS3 logo on the spine? I hate that both Demon Souls and Valkyria Chronicles have that issue in my collection. I'm planning on changing the covers for both.
That too, but I meant this
Also since I'm Australian the spine of Valkyria Chronicles is like this which was also ugly
Yuck.
It seems like every exclusive game has that font on it(Killzone, inFamous, Sly HD, Demon's Souls) and I hate it on all of them.

I'm so glad this thread exists since I make sure to print out new covers to fix stuff like that ASAP.

I have Valkyria Chronicles and Demon's Souls that have the red PS3 symbol for them, so I have to print out new covers.
I actually don't like any of the Demon's covers that are available.

Also need to print out a Last of Us cover as my PS3 came with the game without a box.

Did you buy the Limited Edition like I did? A wrap around sleeve?

My copy of Scribblenauts Unlimited on the Wii U is atrocious. It's from GameStop (surprise), and I would LOVE to make a new cover. But, I can't find a template for the Wii U anywhere on the web, nor have I been able to locate a cover someone else has done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From a few pages back:

I've been making a bunch of templates with a consistent style for awhile now. I originally had planned for some kind of logical repository for them, but it might be a good idea to get them all in one place. Some of them are heavily based on other people's templates with only slight modifications.

Just for reference, here are the various templates and their sizes. (All at 300 PPI)

Can you do different variations of this for MK8? Maybe not that minimal? I really like your work. It has consistent text and styles. I'll be using your WWHD one and hopefully your MK8 box art.


Special bonus super awesome mega request - Can you do a Arkham City Armored Edtition box art please?

Pretty Please

EDIT: holy crap I just found your dropbox link. Is there a reason you have 2 of the same ones? like the SM3DW, I'm trying to spot the difference. Perhaps one is your updated version?
