Re: What color of DVD cases should I use for Saturn games?

Alright, here are some covers I did for Saturn games using the American spine and stuff.

I could've just downloaded a bunch of custom covers from thecoverproject.com, but all of them seemed to be different. The only ones that seemed similar were those slimline Japanese style ones, but I didn't want to use slim cases. Anyway, I'm still pondering whether I should do regular size DVD covers in the Japanese style.

You Super Puzzle Fighter and Astal look good jfrost, but I'd pick diffrent cover art for Radiant Silvergun. The lense flare looks tacky.

I like the faux leather cases that fastbilly1 put up, but I couldn't imagine doing all my DVD covers like that.

The lens flare wasn't my doing. It was present in the original cover:

I could use this as cover art, but I don't know. Radiant Silvergun is a product of the 90s, c'mon :)

Might I ask Jfrost, what did you do with your Saturn manuals? They're too big for dvd cases aren't they?

I don't have manuals, so that's not a problem for me. There are some people who are into The Cover Project and collect games for Saturn on the forum, though, so you might ask them.

My Saturn games are mostly pirated, I'm trying to replace them with legit copies gradually. I try to buy loose copies, however, to keep my expenses low.

I just keep the manuals in the original packaging.

I always keep the original packaging for my games, but I keep them in the closet. They're way too fragile to keep out in the open, where friends/family/the cat could do any more damage to them than they've already been through.

Also, JFrost - all of the Saturn covers I made use the American style. Here's my most recent one.

That's a great cover, the7k. I can't really like the slim cases I find on The Cover Project.

Do you have a link to the rest of your covers for Saturn (or all of them)?

Honestly, I linked to that cover for a reason - it is, by far, my best.

The rest are nothing special. If you're really interested, though, here are some of them. Keep in mind... they're old. They're the first few covers I made as I was learning the ins and outs of photo editing.
