Was messing around just trying to quickly knock up some ideas for a very simple and generic Faces Trilogy boxset cover - based on sluggo’s quality ‘Making Of’ cover - I came up with this ‘3/4 finished’ bodge-job so far (I ran out of ideas to put on the back - doh!)…

The rest of the back cover is too low in quality and the front upper title isn’t great - but it is just for ideas etc…

Though if anyone fancies a go at it, or something similar, it’d be great to see a Faces-themed trilogy cover 😃

I like the second one, but I think the blue bar on the front is too thick.

Nice one mate, how about this below?

I’ve also tided up the fonts and Faces pics on the back cover and spine too - a bit more higher quality now.

(It still doesn’t look great - but better than the thick title bar on the front cover before?)

I’d do a third one with the George Lucas message on the back cover.

Second one, definitely. You may also want to darken up the X Wing and Tie Fighter on the back, possibly up the contrast a bit. At certain angles I can see the outline of the image.

Found these 2 great old dvd covers by the talented sluggo - may be of use to someone who likes the Faces sets…

OMG. THANK YOU for finding these! I can now ironically, complete the saga lol

Also love the trilogy covers you did! Now I can take all my discs and put them in one convenient case! Think I might do a 4th disc which will have both “From Star Wars To Jedi” and “The Making Of Star Wars” and if I can fit it “Empire Of Dreams”.

To help fill up that bit of empty space you could add a version that says “Also includes:” and have pictures of “The Making Of Star Wars” and “From Star Wars To Jedi”.

Wazzles - thanks mate, will see what I can do later on with the picture on the back (I may have to install this free GIMP software instead of just trying to get by with MS Paint - it may be becoming apparent why I usually stick to white inksaver sets 😉)

 

crissrudd4554 - I feel like an idiot now, I actually typed that GL message out for it (I couldn’t find a decent resolution pic of it) - and then deleted it - and used a picture of the X-Wing and Tie Fighter instead. Doh! 😃

Here we go again 😉

 

 

Anyone who wants the covers so far - to use, edit, cannibalise, mock etc 😉 - they can be viewed and downloaded in ‘full size’, here:-

For anyone who wants the full size ‘Making Of’ and ‘From Wars To Jedi’ by the quality sluggo, as well as Faces sets by Mackey, and Rikter himself (for the Gonzo & TR47 sets), they can be found amongst the superb Rikter Cover Collection disc (or 99.7% of it), also available to view and download, here:-

Hope this goes some way to what you may be after LordStarKiller…

Oh definitely, I can cannibalize it to my tastes from here. Nice to see the “Faces” set getting some much needed love 😃

I’m impressed what you’ve actually been able to accomplish with MS Paint. I would definitely reccomend GIMP, but there will be a bit of a learning curve.

It is but I’ve just finished frankensteining my version together using GIMP and once you get the hang of it, it comes in handy.

Well I did some nipping and tucking of my own but I figured I’d post it here. It’s largely the same as what oojason has already done but I’ve scaled the cover to be more in line with the “Faces” dvd covers that were by the original creator of this thread.

^ nice one mate - the Faces set certainly deserves more covers 😃

Thanks! The base you made was already awesome, I just made a few minor tweaks is all plus I liked the George Lucas message so I wanted to include that.

Here’s Version 2:

I know this is a fairly outdated thread, but just in case someone ends up here looking for “Faces” covers for each individual Blu-ray, AVCHD, or DVD film, here are some really nice versions. The artwork is not mine, but was originally posted by “TheDarkKnight”. I’m merely reposting on this thread for convenience.

Really Low res previews, high res download links below:

They are already perfectly proportioned for the media cases for which they are intended. I saved my own copies here.

The NJVC Custom Bluray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions is available on Mega.

I’m basing the disc labels off my VHS copies from the 90s. Only thing I’ve changed is how the content is arranged. So ESB and ROTJ will include the CBS FOX logo. The tapes list ANH at 124 mins, ESB at 128 mins, and ROTJ at 134 mins. However, they are not the special editions. . . so there’s a mystery.

<span style=“font-size: 1.2em; line-height: 1.2em;”> </span>
(right click open in new window for full quality)

Also, the last picture I uploaded was missing text on the right side. Looks like it did not copied over from my original file when I exported as a square. Here’s the correct version.

Any chance you finished this set? Looks beautiful!

Does anyone happen to have the Faces artworks textless???

Some Faces Discart… (from Rikter’s fantastic 2004-ish dvd covers disc)

These are great. I am making a set with this art style and was wondering where you got the images, and if there was a higher res set floating around out there?

There probably are some higher-res images of these somewhere out there by now - though I don’t know where, sorry!

These images are from Rikter’s awesome collection of covers and disc art - which can be found here:-

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByfjLkYDj7bRd3A0WWFhSGNyRjQ - look for the ‘Discs’ section.
 

More links - and more disc art etc - can be found in the An Index & Help Thread for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art

So I am by NO means skilled or well versed in image editing. I am fairly decent with Paint though. I took these and cleaned them up a bit. This involved making sure all the black in the background (not part of an actual image) was uniform in color. I saw a bit of a haze around the Star Wars (ANH) starships and went through and cleaned that out as well to make it solid black. Hopefully these actually look alright, they seem at least cleaner, not necessarily better, than the originals. I have lots of love for the “faces” box set so this was pretty fun. I think my next step will be adding the logos (not sure where), the blu ray emblem (if I will be able to burn at 4k I will add the UHD logo), and “4Kxx” Let me know what y’all think.
