Hi All,

I've had a go at creating a cover for a Homebrew Game.

It's going to be a CD sleeve as my discs are from a spindle and I don't have any Jewel Cases.

It's for Alice Dreams:

The background is not interesting, and her face is a bit weird. The text is all "please please play this game" but doesn't say what it is about, and there are no screenshots. Check some actual DC covers and take them as reference.

Yea, the images themselves are from the game's actual website - I was thinking about re-vectoring them as it goes.

I know what you mean about screenshots etc - it was pretty much a quick throw together, which needs much improvements.

Obviously im new to creating dc covers- not new to graphic design by any means.

I'll have a go at re-doing it and post improvements etc.

Thanks

I like it a lot.

If you like, I would invite you to DCEvolution, we used to have a huge covers section (which is down since our site got hacked).

Here is an example of how our covers look like:

- That's also the template we decided to use on all our covers, just slightly modified for the NeoGeoCD thing in the low right side of the cover. If you want it, let me know.


If you would like to join our staff and help with covers, please register at our forums: http://dreamzoneboards.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl





EDIT: I noticed that you actually still can browse a partially working archive here: http://dcevolution.netfirms.com/covers/index.shtml

...some files are missing though.

Hi Christuserloeser,

Sure I'd like an invite to DCEvolution.

I really like that template, the inclusion of the Dreamcast Disc cover plate is really cool - If I could nab a copy of the file I would be grateful.

I've signed Up to DreamZone also.

I'd be more than happy to help out with creating covers also.

Thanks

i kinda like the cover layout.. it's simplistic and .. well just looks good. but the text on the back is .. blunt and uninteresting
