    It's true but the rest of that Picasso-like creativity came from right up here *points to sideburn*

    if you want i could remove the sega logo. i just thought it made it look more official and the actual cover more full.

    Hmmm... when it comes to making game covers, I always like having gameplay screens on the back, side. Plus, I think the cover should be specific to Jade Gully and the nights engine.

    Do you think you could take a few screens that you think would be "cover art" worthy.

    Like for us to work with.

    Holy SHIT! Yakumo, you designed that cover?

    1) Finds a little alter
    2) Grabs some incense
    3) Buys some candles
    4) Grabs screen image

    I have created a little shrine to that cover art. That is superb mate! Wow!

    Maybe for the Sonic Xtreme cover you should use more of a Japanese Manga style, just to be completely ironic. Something like Japanese Sonic team smashing up the Saturn and allowing it to die for instance?

    Yep, the character art is stolen from the original covers (DVD style) of course but they are my own cover designs complete with original screen grabs on the Under Defeat cover.

    Hey, whether you grabbed aspects of it or not it looks professional and it looks authentic. You've clearly spent a bit of time on it, which is why it has that cool aspect about it! The layout of these things is what is so important.

    I don't think many people realise the amount of time that is spent in designing artwork, promotional material and advertising material. From time to time I'd be sent pre-production material from record labels and when the final album was released you'd spot subtle differences. Argh, I guess I am a nerd when it comes to my music.

    I LOVE Japanese cover art, films, books etc and don't have nearly enough of it. There's just not the outlet for this kind of thing locally and at present I am in no position to import all the stuff I would like.

    I saw the releases you produced and their cover art was always pretty impressive, but that one just looks as if it were a final product.

    Go, glow in new found glory lol
