The Cover is very nice, but a little bit objectionable  :happy:

So I created another Version:

Great first post... Way to make a first impression :no:

Anyway, very well done (Y). I don't understand why Valve doesn't want their stuff on there; you've done such a great job that it could improve their image ;)

They just don't want someone going around saying "OMG I HVAE TEH REEL CVR ART OMG WTF LOL!!!1!!!1one" and then they have to do 'damage control'

Plus people would go "The authenticy(sp?) is on the image so it MUST be real"

Anyways, I really hope valve pays my old buddy and uses his artwork. Cause it would be a smart choice in the end. That stuff is dead sexy.

Yeah. If all of their logo's and trademarks are on it, people think it was made by then, when it really wasn't. I respect that, so I took them off.

Cryptic_Night, I wish they would hire me on as a graphic designer... or even VuG... because we all know how much everyone loves VuG. lol. :laugh:

Yes...Back on Topic.....

How many CD covers would you have to make. And for an idea....make it like a scrolling picture. So when you place all the CDs down on the table in a row it forms the big piccture.

Another Idea: Place them in the order of the spelling "HL:2 CS:S" if it was 6 CD's. So when they put the CD's in order, you get a cool image like thingy.

Just ideas.

The game was already confirmed to have six CDs, or one DVD. I'm not so sure about the scrolling picture idea, as that would be somewhat awkward I'd find. I'm going to re-design the DVD Label, though, as I don't really like how plain it is.

Sorry but I'm unable to host the pics for now as my host (who was giving me free hosting) yelled at me for using 15gigs a month of bandwidth. As it was the only thing that was on my site, shows how popular your labels are Devin :D. Anyways, since I know how high the demand is I'm looking for another host to use up :p. I thought about hosting on my own comp but I don't think sbc would like that, so you'll just have to use the mirror for now.

This is just an update...

My main high quality mirror is down... so that means only the low quality versions are up.

Also, this cover is going to be featured in the next PC Gamer UK.

Yep, if all goes well I'd post you out a copy of the finished mag.

However, Valve misunderstood what we were asking at first, and now that

they do they say it's 'probably best' for us not to do it. I think we're

going to show them the modified version just to check, but at the moment

it looks like it's off. Sorry about that. We'll still point people to

the URL of your case design for them to get it from the net.

*tear* I think VALVe is a little over protective. I mean, who would honestly think you would get the FULL version of Half-Life 2 in PC Gamer? :pinch:
