Nice stuff. I always enjoy looking at these.

Off-topicy, but there's something I've always been confused over. Does the (final) Doom II boxart depict Doomguy with a weird haircut, or is that supposed to be a shotgun guy infighting with the cybie?

I used to think it was the latter when I saw it as a kid. But some people seem to think it's Doomguy. What say you?

I always thought the hair was just a little artistic license on behalf of the artist. Kind of like how a couple of the barons on the Doom boxart had guns of some description in place of one of their arms and Doomguy wielded an smg. Plus, why wouldn't it show a sarge on it? :p

Ohh yeah. I wonder if they changed the cover because it was too violent (blood oh no). It sums up wolfenstein perfectly!

The second pic...WTF?

They used that pic for the Handbook and for the Titlepic of the MAC Version of Wolfenstein 3D.
There was another pic showed the Wolfenstein 3D guy breaking through a wall.
Looked also like a Ken Rieger art, because it was the same style.

Doom 2 Titlepic:
I think it's the Doomguy with a futuristic hair cut.
Look at the endpic and the Doom PSX art.

Well, he's supposed to be from an elf-like race, so it makes sense for him to have unearthly eyes.

@fraggle: Thanks.

Damn, I wish the Ken Rieger art would be released!
And the Roger Motzkus Doom2 art would be in a higher resolution! :(

Someone here knows the Game "Wolfschanze 1944"?
There was a second cover art for it:

It's Doomguy, and his haircut in that boxart is very similar to Brom's version. I'm assuming the artist used or was given Brom's piece to work from.

Is the boxart in question not actually Brom's work to begin with?

It's credited as being done by Roger Motzkus in the original post. I'm assuming it's this piece that DoomUK asked about since he referred to the "(final) Doom II" boxart of the original post. The Motzkus piece comes after Brom's.

Side note: I always hated that original Julie Bell work for Wolfenstein. A Nazi dropping an AR-15 from about 20 years into the future... And B.J. looks more like Jack Burton.

Oh man, makes me want to find some of my favorite album covers and post them here (but I'm sure that'll be frowned upon)


That wolfenstein one (the one I've never seen with the whole nazi cast behind B.J) reminds me of Johnny Quest, or some older 60's cartoon.

One that PSX final doom cover, it looks like the cyberdemon in the way back shot the lost soul at doom guy, as you can see it firing but no rocket.

Oh, that actually makes sense. I'd agree with you more if DoomUK hadn't also mentioned "a shotgun guy infighting with the cybie", which I don't think really applies to the PSX art. In context I think he just said "final" to distinguish the official Doom 2 box art from the Julie bell rendition.

Your point about the PSX cover's hairstyle being likely influenced by the Brom piece is something I'd never noticed until now, though.

So this is serious? When I saw it in a magazine, I thought it was a parody of Doom 2's titlepic, considering how cartoony the Cyberdemon looks, like a bull.

The retail Wolfenstein cover sucks.
The version with Nazis and a dog waiting for Blaz behind a gate, I don't like. It looks too peaceful or innocent.

1. B.J. was Polish, so it is plausible.
2. Conversely Hitler wasn't Aryan.
