I thought I'd try and make an alternative to the DVD covers of all 15 discs of the original run, and then use them, just for the fun of it.
Here's the first season. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Fry at the side looks a little cut out (maybe make him smaller??)
I love that image though smile

Brannigan has two n's and one g.

Not bad, I like it! I feel like it could benefit from being actually lined by hand, since the cover looks a little out-of-focus due to the quality of the original episodes. I'm also wondering if a more interesting font for the "Season 1 Disc 1" would look better, and maybe a toned-down red. But it's clool.

Thanks for the responses guys big grin
Brannigan has two n's and one g.
Gah, how did I misspell that!? tongue
And I will do more, but this is all I've done so far. Making Fry smaller might be a good idea, because it means I can fit some other characters in.

Another thing, Fry on the spine being cut was intentional. It probably looks a bit silly here, but when I put it into a case I reckon it'll look fine.

EDIT: Added the rest of Season 1, and made a few changes to the first one.

I like the layout of all of them. Maybe find a clearer picture for the background of the last one, but it isn't a huge problem...

That was the point.

I do care, thank you very much. smile The small font and limited time I had made it tricky to get everything spelled correctly.

I will now begin work on Season 2.
Also, here's a funny story: I was going to have Slurms in the background of the third one, but I ditched him because I couldn't make it look like he wasn't touching Leela's boobs  laff

BAM! Added some more smile

That was when he took them out because he didn't want to watch Leela be eaten by Lrrr. I might change it though, because it looks a bit silly.

Alright, you guys probably don't care very much, but I did some more:




I think they seem to turn out better when they're not being crammed with detail.

I like them very much, but my favorite is season 3 disc 3. I love the TKoS theme, and I   love Fry's expression when he says that his face and Leela's should get better acquainted. Well done.

These are a wonderful fan project. I still like the "official" DVD covers, but these would be fun to use if I had a second set of DVDs, or if mine were destroyed in a fire but somehow I had the discs left. Or something.

I agree, I like how they mash everything together. It has a real professional feeling to it.

Thanks guys.
And just in case anyone is interested, the reason I'm doing these is because I can't stand the inconsistent art on the official covers, and the fact that 6A is called "Season 5" really bugs me.

Here's a couple more. Note that Lrrr on the side of Season 4, Disc 1 is only a placeholder. I was going to put URL, but couldn't find a decent image.


EDIT: URL is now on the spine.

Any improvements I could make? I feel as though I should have some more background gags, but then again I like the simplicity.

Also, I'm not a huge fan of Season 2, disc 1. I might change that completely.

I've nearly finished the original run. Once I've done the last of Season 4, I'll jump straight to 6. (I will do covers for the movies, but I'd prefer to do the episodes first.)

Yeah... it also says "Time Keeps on Slipping" instead of Slippin'. Anyway, I updated Season 4, Disc 1. It now has URL on the spine instead of Lrrr.

To be fair though, most of these little errors in the titles are quite minor. Most of them I didn't even notice (apart from the "Over Clock Wise" one.  no no )


The spine looks a bit plain with just Nibbler, but will probably look a bit better once it's stacked with the other DVDs.

This one I'm fairly proud of. Getting the transparency on the jar to look right was difficult.

I thought it would be appropriate to give the final disc for the original run a TDHAIPT theme, and I love the way it turned out. It almost looks like a promotional image for the episode.

Time for Season 6!


Because the new episodes are in a higher resolution, it meant I had to completely redo the back cover frown But I like the way it turned out.

I've finally gotten around to making the front cover of the next disc.



I like the way it turned out. I'm a little sick of Photoshop at the moment, so I have yet to do the back and spine.

Stay tuned for more!
