Yes, someone is FINALLY doing some alternate artwork for the DVD boxsets. Anyways, so far I only got a partial set for Season 1 done.

The case in mind I am going to have for this set can be ordered here.

Right now for the back I'm thinking about either leaving it blank or putting the listing of what is on each disc. What would you folks prefer, or does anyone have a better idea of what I could do?

Anyways, looking forward to reading everyone's comments on my work in progress. :)

I like your design very much. It's much more elegant than the official ones.

I think a simple episode listing would be a good idea. Plus your name as the designer of the artwork - credit where credit's due, after all.

Its never occurred to me before to replace official/supplied artwork or that people actually do!

Very nice! I'd definitely use alternate artwork for S2; the R1 artwork is pretty hideous.

Yep, there's definitely a cottage industry in alternate artwork (if you can call fan artwork given for free an industry, but I digress). And yes, I would be positively estatic at anything to replace the US Season Two artwork. What were they thinking???

Great artwork! I know having nothing on the back looks a bit odd looking at it this way, but I think that maybe it'd look cool once it's wrapped around a case. Another idea might be to have a face shot of Frank (maybe in profile?) in the same style as the front.

If you'll bear with a little recommendation, the "1" on the side I think kinda sticks out. It doesn't seem to jibe with the other text in the art. Possibly making it smaller or changing the font so that the width is a bit narrower would work better. However, please feel free to ignore me - in any case, the art's wonderful!

I think your cover art looks awesome-much better than what they released. And in my opinion-you want the "1" to stand out...it's an identifier mark..it doesn't necessarily have to be in the same font as everything else. Will you being doing all 3 seasons?

Cool stuff! :bigsmile:

Great cover! I love whatever you did to make the House sketchy/watercolery. (Forgive the lack of techincal terms; my one semester of Modern Technology was... four years ago... or something).

I know it's been asked, but... any plans for S2 and 3?

On a side note: why do the British and US (only ones I've seen) covers differ so drastically? I know the people who created the show have little to no say in the design, but it seems strange, since the artists/ad people, whomever, are selling the same product to the same fans, unless I missed something.

I guess I'm just envious because I think the British covers are cooler than ours (Harsh Realm especially!) Also jealous because they have 3 and the threefer out already... :angryred:

- nothing, reminding herself 'patience is a virtue, and you haven't even watched all of 1&2 yet' (blasphemy, she knows).

this is who we are

we can't just sit back and hope for a happy ending

i couldn't swear it wasn't just an incredibly realistic simulation. not just the scenery, my whole life.

I've yet to think of an R1 cover that's better than an R2 cover of any television DVD box set. Perhaps the suits are catering to the stereotype (often well-founded) of Europeans appreciating art and creativity more than us American rubes. :bigsmile:

The season two box set here, for example. They really couldn't have come up with ANYTHING better than the pic of the masks from A Single Blade of Grass? Yikes.

Do the R2 disk sleeves have similar art as the R1s? I mean, Frank in a slightly different pose/facial expression? Don't get me wrong; I love Frank, but even my brother (whom I'm working on indoctrinating into MM!) noted the repetitiveness after handling maybe 3 disks...

I get that he's the main character/emphasis, etc, but most other TV shows I know/own have pics of the supporting characters as well, even those, unlike MM, that have a character as part of the title of the show.

And as for the s2 covers - yeah, ASBOG is a strange pic considering very few people liked it. I do like the overall color scheme, the episode had a lot less to do with the MM arc than Owls did, on the British cover. I do like that the upper half of the covers have the same 'theme' going on -the ouroborous, with the expanding bridge thingy behind it, in a larger and fainter ouro, with some symbols visible, like the three triangles and other angled shapes without names (am very inarticulate today), but the scale seems slightly different, especially for the 'background'. The font for 'MillenniuM' is a little different, with the US looking a bit more 'destroyed' than the UK; and the rest of the US font is a bit more atypical than the UK font.

Coincidentally, they're both on sale at amazon.com and amazon.com/uk; 25 and 18 % off, respectively

(I don't know how to put pics in the text... :( ) (edited: apparently I do)
