OT: Custum Cover for NHL 07 for XBOX 360

Hi Guys,

I don't pretend to be very good at this, in fact this is my first attempt, but I thought I'd share this cover I made for the upcoming NHL 07 game. It's done with a template (not sure who created the template to be honest).

The image itself, I found on the internet. A couple things to note:

1. This was a first run - kind of rushed - just to see if I could 'do it'.
2. The image used wasn't the best (size, position, resolution, etc...)
3. Because of the image, it had to be placed a little off center, otherwise the legs would have looked 'cut-off' on the side

Due to the above points, please be gentle in your criticisms.

Hope you enjoy, I'm working on a Saku Koivu one - I found a pretty good image to start with and I'm going to take my time in an attempt to put together a really good looking cover.

One more thing - to download the image, make sure to click on it first. This will open the full size printable image in a new window. Then do the 'right click, save picture as...' thing. Otherwise, you'll be saving an oversized thumbnail of the image.

I'll also add that if anybody has any high resolution Habs images to share, that would be appreciated, the better the image to start with, the better the cover - images of resolution 1024 x 2048 and above would be ideal. It makes it easier to crop and the image suffers from less quality loss if it doesn't have to be enlarged. Also, it's a lot harder to see any imperfections if it doesn't need to be 'sized up'.

Nice work but I hope they don't run with it. Every player who has been on EA NHL games has been cursed afterwards. Mario got sick, Nolan...well. Then there is Heatley and boom - goodbye Mercedes etc.

Anyway, as long as there is no jinx...carry on

I can post that over the weekend sometime for you. I have a pretty busy weekend though so I can't tell you if it will be on Sat or Sun, but I'll put it up.

I really like Markov, but is it just me or he isn't very "charismatic" on that picture?

Finished. I put them up on my site.

Go into the Photoshop gallery - all of the custom covers are in there. Again, still looking for high res pictures to work with. The larger the better. Anybody able to provide some? Enjoy. I hope they get better as I get more practice.

For anyone interested, I have finished and put on my site a Koivu custom cover for XBOX 360 NHL 07.

http://jcrow.net/gallery/

Go into the Photoshop gallery.

This is my second attempt and I think it's better than my first. However, I still could use higher resolution images to start with. If anyone has any and wouldn't mind sharing, I'd like to see how much better I can get at this. Requests with images welcome. Enjoy.
