CD Art Concepts

Recommended Posts

Hi! I put together some concepts for 0 A.D. CD art, which I posted in the topic about someone selling discs on Ebay. It was suggested that I post it here, too. These are half resolution previews. Let me know what you think!

Very professional!

Maybe, since you add notes about CC-BY-SA, you should also tell that it's licensed under both GPL and CC-BY-SA.

The 3rd one is the best i think.

However I prefer the 1st one :rolleyes:

Great work!

I would change the screenshots, though. I think a cityscape and a battlefield are better to represent what the game is about

Wow! nice design!

I agree with Jeru, and maybe making the outer ring a little skinnier will give you more space for the images.

Nice work :)

I like it! :)

I agree with Enrique, make the outer ring skinnier and the images bigger. Also, maybe we shouldn't use screenshots on the label, as that says "bootleg" to me. ;) How about two angry warrior heads, one on the left and one on the right, facing each other (like a staredown, this sort of situation). Don't know if there's any existing concept art that you could use.

If you want, you could also try other round shapes that fit the shape of a CD. e.g. shields, coins.

Better yet, use elements of decoration from ancient greek vases. Now, there's something interesting that I've never seen done before...

Perhaps a high-quality 3d render of one of the buildings would be better than a screenshot.

Challenge accepted :buba:

Any suggestions for the building?

Very classy, IMO, especially if it would be light on text.

No reason we can't have several designs, of course.

The 'staredown' was used on the boxes of the original Warcraft, though, so it might seem a bit cliché to RTS fanatics:

Ah, I knew I'd seen something like that before. "There's no such thing as original thought."

I made this DVD cover for 0 A.D. a while ago. I mentioned in in my first post on the forums. Unfortunately, my school didn't see the need to mention to anyone that all your data gets deleted over the summer, so the PSD file is gone forever. I spent a lot of time on this, though.

I like the design. One thing that I think could be changed is that when you make the cross/ring so large it si very obvious how sharp the edges are. This contrasts with the rough texture, I think it would be better to have a rougher edge. Perhaps if there is a 3d model available a normal/displacement map could be produced and it could be rendered very nicely.

That is a pretty nice cover!

I combined the "0" CD with the unit art CD. Let me know what you think! Would it look better with two images on opposite sides, or is one large image better?

Looks nice - I'm not so sure about the way the guy's spear pokes into another 2 quadrants though, perhaps you could make him a little smaller to fit into one quadrant?
