Novice Level Box Art Work - Resistance: Fall of Man, first project
Raentyr's WIP Thread
► Resistance: Fall of Man Box Art - Last Updated 6.26.2012
Added some new touches, and with the use of Sens and Deiviuxs's 3-D PS3 Display, I was able to make a final presentation before the upload. I've actually changed the bottom text to be below where it is now.
Thanks to the community for their support and help thus far.
Upon reconsideration, I fixed up the blur on the front cover of the box art. Also, the links below have been replaced with the new ones as I accidentally deleted the old images. Hopefully should look better as well as put less strain on the eyes.
Any further blur exists due to Postimage.org's resizing requirements due to the large size of the .png files.
Hey all, I figured I'd post some box art that I worked on for my PS3 copy of Resistance: Fall of Man. I made both a greatest hits and a regular style for it. This is my first attempt at my own creation of personal box art work. It's cover is heavily based off of the collector's edition of Resistance 2 but I figured I'd give it a shot.
All stocks and images used in the manipulation are also posted below for reference and ideas that may come up in your critiques.

Feel free to comment, critique, dole out advice, or present any ideas to give the covers more intrigue. Thanks.

Reason: Box Art Update
This is a great first. You will go far.
a la cho
Welcome to the site! It's good you are posting a WIP before publishing to the main site first.
Ok, this is promising for a first, I like the layout very much (but I'd stick with the regular cover, it looks more official that way). The only issue I have is that it's VERY blurry, but that should be easily fixed
Anyway, welcome to the site, fix up that blur and you will have one corker of a box ready for posting.
About the blur: two things are contributing towards that.
Firstly, I applied blurs to the front in order for Nathan Hale and the Chimeran Hybrid to appear as if they were actually in the backdrops, not just pasted onto them. It looked pretty shoddy beforehand, and I think it looked better. And the backdrops were blurred so as to make the focus onto the characters.
Secondly, the site that I uploaded those pictures on forced me to upload a smaller version of the artwork, so it blurred everything up, including the text.
Also, I forgot to mention that I used this template for its design: Beardedwalrus's PS3 Template
Alright, so I fixed up the blur as recommended by some of you guys, as well as my close friends. Replaced the links up above with the current ones. Hopefully should look better.
Also, if there is still quite a bit of blur, I apologize, due to the fact that Postimage.org makes me resize these images.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Let me know what you guys think now. Cheers.
So what do you guys think? Is it ready to be uploaded to the site? If it is, I shall start working on making the 3D copy of both.
Yeah. It looks great. But only upload the non-greatest hits version.

Tell me what kind of ideas you have or what not, and if all is looking good, I'll submit it to the gallery at last.
Thanks for all the community's support and criticism thus far.

Looks great, but the reflection is messed up. I would also change the colour of the spine since green doesnt fit with the overall box.
Compared to the recent novice boxes posted to the site, this is awesome. You clearly put much more effort and it really shows. Nice work.
Only hope all new users put in as much persistence to the constant improvement of their own creations.
Once again great work (especially for a first)!
I hear your advice about the green, Deathmania, but I'm afraid that I'm slightly partial towards it, as I feel that the shade of green throughout the game is a rather important one.
Also, I realize that the reflection is messy, but I think it'd be silly to worry about that seeing that it's a first. I'll go try to fix it up some, however.
BacKin5Minutes, thank you for your support. Although I'm not sure if I can agree with all the strong words and healthy compliments, I do appreciate it.
So what do you guys think? Upload tonight or tomorrow?
Also, small edit, I've updated the Sta.sh file on dA and this is the most recent update. Fixed the reflexion as well as the text and image size.
