What's your favorite Amiga floppy disk artwork?

I don't believe we've discussed this before, correct me if I'm wrong.

Some of my favorites are Super Skidmarks, Defender of the Crown (the first one), Jurassic Park and Hook (the second one).

Given the level of piracy, I suspect most of us have never even seen the disks of our favourite games!
These are my favourites from the few originals that I owned.

Mercenary the first one http://hol.abime.net/2449/diskscan
Damocles - the black disk http://hol.abime.net/2450/diskscan
Faerytale adventure was good too http://hol.abime.net/485/diskscan
Falcon, the first one http://hol.abime.net/486/diskscan

I never saw good artwork on a floppy. Probably cause the only original disks we had were from magazines. :P
That Nick Gentry is amazing though.

*cough* Apparently you can get some of those labels for printing from some obscure place called CIA *cough*

No plugs here *cough* http://awesome.commodore.me/labels *cough*

Edit: The disks were accurately created by me, using a precision tool for measuring and using shades, lighting and textures to make them look as real as possible..... I just hope they are good enough and are pleasing to the eye.

Edit2: I can also do them in various colours too, so they're not restricted and I have also done the 5.25" floppy, although that was much easier to create.

I like the artwork of Disposable Hero floppies. I have two sets of the original disks, but keeping an eye open for a boxed copy.
