WIP Some VGM CDArt that I did using FanArt CD Template, Appreciate Your Feedback!
#1
Heart 
Due to the lack of cdArt from FanArt.tv for anime/VGM disc art I decided to start creating several of them, just to test my long forgotten PS skill. Also trying to contribute back to the community for those awesome fanart backdrops that I had been using!

Some of the scans are pretty low resolution to begin with (1500x1500) in JPEG, but I tried my best. It's easy to work with scans with 2000x2000 since it's easier to downscale than upscale. I think I'm starting to speed up my workflow now Smile What do you think? Any scans that you like me to do? You provide the hi res link if any.

Let me know your thoughts, critical feedback would be appreciated to further improve the quality (I'm looking at you pixel peepers! ;-) I have standard PS skill and these are my first attempt to create CD art for these albums. Even better, post a screenshot of your VGM album in Kodi skin showing it spin!

Full rest cdArt:

P/S: I'm a huge anime/VGM listener and recently getting back to it again.

As dsync89 mentioned in the first post, there is a discart template available at fanart.tv.

The tutorial and template are here... https://fanart.tv/tutorials/create-a-cda...photoshop/

A good little template, makes it so easy. Your attempt turned out quite nicely. Will you be uploading to fanart.tv also?

I quite enjoy creating discart. Here are my attempts....

I might do that, but I don't really seeing a lot of VGM album entries there, so I'm not sure whether it is viable. Sadly I don't see any good cdArt database website for VGM, closest one would be VGMdb.net but that is mostly for album info.

I have no idea what VGM is, but can you locate the artist and albums at MusicBrainz?... https://musicbrainz.org/search

I just noticed your first image has the centre spindle peeking through in the background. You most likely did not find the reflective surface. It is halfway down on this page... https://fanart.tv/2012/11/reflective-cdart/
