LS' Mock Boxart Thread - Updated 24/01/14: Smash Bros!
Postby LightSamus » Sun Nov 13, 2011 3:55 am

I make mock boxarts on occasion just as a hobby and figured I may as well post them here. Doesn't seem to be a thriving creative corner but better than nothing :)

I like it! :)

Just out of curiosity, do you use them at all? i.e replace the actual sleeves with your own?

Nope, thought about it but the lack of a personal printer means I can't be bothered XD

Just wanted to say that's some great graphic design, fella. Speaking as a professional graphic designer myself, I'm impressed. Good use of type, space and an appreciation of the format you're working with. Keep it up and these would make good portfolio pieces.

Wow, thanks :)

It's not something I do for anything more than fun though so I'll just carry on as I am for now.

Made an Assassin's Creed Revelations box:

And now working on a Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City box in the style of Deus Ex Human Revolution:

I do love feedback, even if this section is a tad dead :P

EDIT: Changes made.

These are brilliant. I love those Pokemon Atari ones. The Ass Creed Auditore Chronicles could easily be the real deal.

Wow, never been into this thread before. Some of those covers are great LS!

I particularly like the FFVII, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 6 covers.

How do you go about making these covers? Keep up the great work!

Oh wow! These are really special. Nice work!

I really like the FFXIII-2 one.
