So I'm nearly complete with my Macross Fandub, and I'm kind of wanting to do something different than completely ripping off the original DVD cover design and DVD itself.

I'm wondering if anyone would like to try something, of course, you'd get credit and a free copy of the DVD as being apart of the staff. I have some ideas of what I'm looking for in terms of options and you're also welcome to suggest your own interpretations.

The guide lines are simple if yet challenging:

The art must reflect either a Mikimoto style of art, or something close to it.The image must be able to fit onto a DVD cover print out, and must include a Front, Back and Spine with the following summery inside;

It is the year 2009,the human race is in the middle of a three-way war with a race of giant humanoid aliens the males called Zentraedi and the females, Meltrandi . After executing a space fold that sent it and part of South Atalia Island to the edge of the Solar System, the Macross with it's 74,000 refugees make their way back to Earth. During a small skirmish with Zentraedi forces, young pilot Ichijo Hikaru rescues idol singer Lynn Minmay and their relationship develops as they're stranded somewhere within the ship. But shortly after returning to Macross City, Minmay is captured by the Zentraedi, and Hikaru and female officer Misa Hayase end up back on Earth - only to view the aftermath of the destruction of their civilization. Only a song discovered eons ago along with Minmay's voice can determine the outcome of the war.

From creator Shoji Kawamori of Sousei no Aquarion, and Macross Frontier, with English Adaptation by Dark Heroes Entertainment;

Macross, Do You Remember Love?

Well if anyone is interested, gimme a PM. post-600-0-13208300-1325565445_thumb.jpgpost-600-0-36436000-1325565466_thumb.jpgpost-600-0-16105700-1325565494_thumb.jpg

I use to have Hi-res samples of the DVD art originally. Be cool if I could find those too.

It's not too shabby. I'd like to see "Do You Remember Love?" with it, or maybe something like using the original Japanese title with "Do You Remember Love?" maybe try both title treatments to see which stands out more?

I do like the direction so far.

I wasn't sure about the logo I didn't want to butcher it so I just tried some text what do you think of the star instead of just a plain black or colored background?

I can insert "Do You Remember Love" in the title.

I'm a little confused about all of this. Is it okay to use various clipart for the DVD wrap? Is it supposed to be original artwork?

I ask because I've seen the Minmay on the front cover used as the cover art for the "Macross the Complete" OST. Perhaps what's being used is the whole picture and the OST art just had it cropped to only show Minmay. Just curious...

It's a great start! I still need a spine and back though.

It's pretty much free reign to however you want to do it. If you want to use clip art from other deals and photoshop them, or draw your own designs it's totally up to you. It's great to have a variety of designs to pick and choose from in my opinion. When I first did the DYRL project and had the remastered footage there was a folder labeled DVD art. When i looked at it I must of seen a dozen different covers that've been used from the VHS era to the current DVD designs we see in stores.

My original design was the Macross in the background and Minmay on some stage circle, and then the spine and backing was a slightly altered version of the FX dvd cover I think. Also had to get rid of all the japanese context and replace it with english using very similar colors to the cover which was difficult. All in all it wasn't a horrible design but it certainly could of been better.
