Yeah, for some reason, I couldn't get the pictures on the back to look right or at least how I wanted them. So, I went ahead with a cleaner look, by not using them. I figured, less is more in this case. But I think this is it for now, I'll give it a days break, so I can come back to it with new eyes later on.

But this has been so much fun! I can't wait to start a second cover one of these days. What do you guys think?

NOW, to me it looks great!!

Thanks! Wasn't sure anyone would notice. I did it to my Prestige cover as well. Hid the Criterion C.

Can you tell me what is the mm size of the spine for the single disc case that custom cover designers generally design for if they were designing for a single disc case?

It's the Canadian The Way Back release. And I was lucky enough to get 5 of the orange cases.

I also just completed my own custom cover. It's no masterpiece work of art, I simply replaced the front cover and spine.

That would be 12.5mm for the US, 14mm for the UK.

The 12.5mm cases can hold up to three discs, so you'll see a lot of "trilogy" customs with those dimensions.

w/indy jones being announced this week....has anyone done any custom covers for the set yet??

if someone's willing, i'd love it if they looked like the releases that came w/the dvd set a couple years ago.



i also found this online that would make for an awesome set in 1 4-5 disc case.

Display: Panasonic TC-P50U2 • Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR818 • Blu-Ray Player: Panasonic DMP-BD65 • Gaming: PS3 Slim 160 gb • Center Channel: JBL LC2 • Fronts: JBL L890 • Mid’s & Rears: JBL L810 • Subs: SVS SB-2000

Thanks. And I know they are all red. I used an original colored pencil sketch from Jim Lawson, the guy who did the pencils for the original comic book, and his drawing he has all of them wearing the same bandana. So i kinda wanted to stay true to the original comic style. Thanks for the input though its always appreciated!

Thanks! I think I am finished with the Shame cover art for now. I might wait to see the UPC, and match it to the art, just so it looks more official. But it was a fun experience.

Here's another one I'm working on. Just a remix of the cover art from the Blu-ray. I disliked the giant blue bar at the top. It felt too much. But hopefully, this cover art I'm doing isn't half bad when finished. This is still a first draft.

Though, I think it might suffer from too much Ewan. Any comments, welcome!

Default What size is a 3120x1740 case

Regarding Blu-ray size case...

I know a 3118x1748 is a 11mm case. If I remember correctly, a Vortex case.

I give it a solid

I'm not a Ewan McGregor super-fan, but in this case I don't think you're overdoing it. I mean he is the main character and I think the particular photo emphasizes the isolation and pain of drug addiction. If I have one complaint it's with the "Collector's Edition" listed on the bottom left. It's such small letters, yet it's distracting in it's own little corner. Can't say I know a better place to put it. Maybe it could be eliminated altogether.

Thanks for the info. Any chance you're giving away any of those orange cases?
