This thread was requested in the US Boxart one, so what the hell. I hope this doesn't distract anyone from making box art for the GAF collection, but rather makes you addicted to making even more like me at the moment. :lol

Get box art templates from here: http://www.thecoverproject.net/forums/index.php?topic=1610.0

Take a current/previous gen game and give it box art for an older console. Try to make your cover look as if it could have come directly from whatever console you pick.

This is a quick photoshop job of the Conduit that inspired this thread..



and here's another one I just made..



Some inspirational material:

That Wii Sports cover is cute. A bit too Atari-like though, what with the undetailed pixart.

Yeah, I'm imagining some of the crazy talented people around these parts can do better, judging by the quality in the GAF Collection thread. :D

Something simple that uses the original artwork from the
superior
PAL version, just to give a start to this thread:

J/k about the FMV length, obviously ;)

Bump! Thanks to Hero of Legend I now have higher resolution Conduit art for the Mega Drive cover for those that wanted it:



I stuck the SEGA SEAL OF QUALITY badge there to hide the horrible smudge tooling in that corner. :lol

Thanks, Gagaman. I'm definitely going to print that when the game comes out.
