Fan mockups[edit source]

I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on fan mockups. In sorting out the images here I've stumbled across fan mockups for cover art, for eg. Faith and a .45 and The Getaway 3. The former I could only find on this site. I actually found a different, though North American, cover on a fan site. The latter was never even properly revealed, so would have never reached that sort of stage in production. I've provisionally deleted these. I wrote this, to be added to this page:

Note that fan mockups of front covers, particularly of cancelled games, are not to be uploaded, and deleted if found. Official mockups, (ie. those created for a digital release when the game was never released in a physical format) such as Nintendo's mockup for Star Fox 2 for the Super NES Classic Edition, are of course allowed. Official cover art for cancelled games should be cited as a precaution. This is because these mockups may be mistaken by external sources to be official media.
