If you can scan in and post a copy of the actual one, I can. If not, I can scan in another game for the size and then fudge it, though it won't be perfect.

Alexander IS the cover boy. Therein lies the problem, so I had to make a custom cover. Hines Ward was the MVP of Super Bowl XL. Shaun Alexander is just a piece of crap.

Wow, that's excellent work. It looks like you even added a white drop shadow to soften up the image.

Nicely done!

I scanned it in for ya. http://www.pisnnapalm.com/madden07DS.png

It's a very large scan at 300dpi resolution. I hope that's big enough. If not I can rescan it.

Thank you!

Very impressive work! I have to ask, how were you able to get the original pic from behind the lower half and replace it with Hines? Top notch work!!! :cheers:

Actually the entire picture is recreated, background and all. If you compare to two side by side, you will notice that the backgrounds are similar, but not identical. I just wanted to match that closely enough that if you didn't know, you couldn't tell. ;)

Good job. That's going on my box today!

Who are you most pissed about on the Steelers? I think Keisel should have at least been an 80 overall.

That is some nice work. You get a new madden cover and the curse stays with Alexander.

Major props to you then!!! I work in the graphic arts industry and looked at them seperately (not side by side) and couldn't tell the difference. As I said before....Great job! You definitely put some time and effort into recreating them. They need to hire you as a graphic artist!
