    Has anyone here got any Custom Star Wars DVD covers to share with us? Including Ewok Movies, Holiday Specials and other spin off?s.

    This is sort of Fan Art

    I've got a nice one I made of the Clone Wars but I don't know how to upload it to the forums?

    I've managed to upload it to a site but it is not at its full size. I had to shrink it to get it down to 250kb. The original, which is DVD cover size is around 2.5MB.

    I've posted the small image to give you an idea of what I have done.

    Let me know what you think.

    The large sized pic has been uploaded to the TFN main, you can check it out here (it is a large file though):

    It looks cool :cool: I like the way you designed it. :)

    I would give it a 8 out of 10, it is really good.

    I don't mind at all! If you know a way I can post the full size for people to actually use as a DVD cover, I'll be glad to do that too.

    Very nice cover, Darth_Neilzy. I love the layout and the execution. Nice job! :)

    I also have a few of my own that I made for myself and my cousin(we're planning on making our own copies of the O-OT on DVD and we needed covers). The only problem is, they're on my other computer. I'll see if I can get them up. ;)

    Great work Darth_Neilzy.

    If you have any spare time would you consider making a DVD label as well?

    [image=http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v299/Darth_Neilzy/Star%20Wars/aotcDVDlabel.jpg]

    This is the one I made from scratch loosely based on the above design, I hope this is what you wanted.

    Yeah mate!

    I bought Photoshop CS at a heavy discount (for "educational" purposes, I need it for my uni course). It is by far one of the best programs I have ever used.

    See, it's too bad that GL has said that the holiday special will never be officially released. As bad as it probably is, I'd still see it just for the sake of seeing it.

    Rick McCallum thinks you're seriously deranged!

    i've seen it... and better yet, on a old, bad tape...
    lemme just inform you that it may be worth watching once, but that is by far the extent ;)


    edit: and back on topic.... nice work everyone :)

    Wow, great job to all.

    The "Clone Wars" ones are truly amazing. A lot of my friends are into making things of this nature, and I regret that I am still a novice at making such graphics, even though I've been at it since mid 2000. :confused:

    I have a quick question for Darth_Neilzy though, did you cut those pictures yourself? Or were they pre-cut "PSD" images? If they were pre-cut, where did you get them? And if you did cut them yourself, I want to say excellent job, and I was curious where you found the original pictures to cut. Thanks. :D

    G'Day Darth-Vassago,

    The images came as jpegs and I cut them on photoshop. Fortunately the images have white backgrounds so it was very easy. I can quite remember were they came from (it was a late night of surfing when I found them), but I did save them to my HD. I've uploaded the pics below.

    I hope you find what you are looking for.

    Wow, thanks. That was awesome of you and I very much appreciate it.

    Here is kind of an off topic question...does anyone know when the Clone Wars cartoon is on? I can never seem to catch it. Or is it over? :confused:

    Here is my DVD cover:

    [image=http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v295/ThrawnRocks/CWDVD.jpg]

    I can't get it to bee good quality though. [face_thinking] How did you, Darth_Neilzy? I think we're using the same sight to host it.


    And to answer your question, the Clone Wars shorts have ended, but there will be a season 3 next year.
