Most new users don't bother reading our rules. Here's the one that is ignored almost immediately upon signup: DO NOT ASK FOR FANEDIT LINKS PUBLICLY. First, read the FAQ. Seriously. What you want is there. You can also send a message to the editor. If that doesn't work THEN post in the Trade & Request forum. Anywhere else and it will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.
If this is your first time here please read our FAQ and Rules pages. They have some useful information that will get us all off on the right foot. More details on our policies, especially our Own the Source rule are available here. If you do not understand any of these rules send a private message to one of our staff for further details.

I always use GIMP to make my 3dviews, its very simple and takes about two minutes, the images are simply laid over top of an actual 3dview using the perspective tool, then some shadows/highlights on the spine a bit and the disc reflection. Easy.
Nice QC! Here's the original from Pulp Fiction. Could be cool to model your design on this one even further - eg, the font used underneath the logo for "a new edit by njvc", and maybe even experimenting with the worn look?
Here is some art for Star Wars: The Beginning. As I told bondukkevin, this design is aiming more for artistic quality/uniqueness than information. So there's hardly any info about the edit, save for the two lines at the top of the back. The title on the front is obviously partially covered, and I just loved how that looked so much, that I kept it that way - you can still read the full title on the side. I'm fairly happy with how fading the major players of the edit into the fire turned out.
