Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
El Shaddai (in-game art asset is great, but the official art cover is terrible)
ICO HD Collection
Batman; Arkham Asylum

thanks
This one took awhile... Hope u like it.

Here's

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
 
I remember doing some of these a long time ago. My Ratchet A Crack in Time one turned out well I think, here it is for those interested. I think I might start doing some more now for some of the upcoming games this holiday.

 
Are there any specific places to find hi-res artwork? I'm looking through the video game artwork thread on here right now but any other places? Not really finding anything I like for Shadows of the Damned, Alice or Dark Souls :\ And the art I like is too small lol :p

I prefer without the black bar on top
You know, I gotta say, after actually printing some of those and using them... something about them isn't working for me. They LOOK nice, but as actual paper sleeves, I think I prefer the black bars for the covers.

They look amazing when you're looking at them on a computer screen but I think there does need to be some kind of border.
 
So what does everyone do with their stock covers? Keep them behind the custom ones? Store them somewhere else? Don't want the originals getting jacked up, but don't like seeing them behind the custom ones either.

Printed off a few of these yesterday, but didn't get the size quite right so I'll be redoing them. My wife just rolled her eyes at me when I showed them to her.

Would love to see some more of these for the 360 as well.

Alright, Call of Duty 4 is done. I ended up having to crop off some of the back, but I still think it looks okay.


Click for full size.
Can anyone do something with this one? I'd love to print it but the link's dead. I printed this pic here but the dims are off and it came out blurry as hell.

Hm I don't know, is this too... plain? I wanted to ask before I did anymore work on it.
I think it's a cool cover, but it doesn't capture the essence of the game. Lords of Shadow is way more colorful than that, and as a man who loves color, I think it should be rewarded with a colorful cover since it's one of the few games that isn't brown/grey shit.

Some of it was colorful but not all of it. But hmmm I take your opinion into consideration regardless.
 
Okay so I tried my hand at doing a Xbox 360 minimal cover template. The Xbox logo itself seemed a little difficult to see when adding artwork to it though so I added a tiny bit of layer style to help it stand out a bit more but not too much. I think it turned out okay. Here's the template:

And I tried out a Dead Space 2 cover to see how it'll look with actual game art in there. What do you guys think?

Really?

Nah I think Id still prefer without black bar, it has that retro look to it

That is beautiful Rengoku! Where did you find that image? I'm trying to look up some high res images of some games but it's super hard to find anything decent.
Well, other than the High Res art thread on gaf, its really a matter of searching on google for wallpaper sites, and art sites. Sometimes it helps if you know the artist names who worked on the game, and you can usually find their stuff on their personal site/blog. Also, try deviantart, tineye, flickr and google image search.

zazrx said:
YES! YES! thank you, thank you.

now, one last request Rengoku (for now), Dark Souls, please

this weekend I will print some of these and take some clear pictures
I'll see what I can do... Not sure I found many high quality art for Dark souls the last time I checked. If nothing good comes up, we might have to wait abit till more promo stuff comes out.

Mirror's Edge


 
These cover arts are fantastic. Where can I get paper like or similar to the actual cover arts that ship with games? Also, where should I print them to get the quality of the actual cover arts?

Just bring ps3 cover sample to kinkos or office depot

I SAID "HOLY CRAP."

I'd like to complain that it doesn't have enough color (which is the only artistic critique I am capable of making), but dude, wow. I'm not joking. I said "holy crap" out loud, to no one.
:) I know theres already a mirror's edge cover or two in this thread, but I couldn't resist making another one when I found that pic.

No longer boycotting the Wolfenstein franchise
Damn, some of these are so nice, I'm actually tempted to get these printed out. But none of these Mediafire links work for me :/
