    Default [PS4] - Resident Evil 4 (WIP)

    Hi guys! How are you doing? I would like to show everyone here my newest cover box art of the PS4 version of Resident Evil 4.



    Full Image: http://i.imgur.com/mZPCLcR.jpg

    As you can see on the front cover of the red box, the wordings on the background says "Lord Saddler" to show and feel the Satanic Cult vibe where all the villages serve Lord Saddler as their God. I'm trying to make something different out of it without actually adding the legal text, screenshots and other common things on the cover.

    All in all, what do you guys think?

    IMO the yellow box doesn't look great, too bright (and with all the strong glows) and there's no focus so maybe you need a bigger character in the middle. I guess instead of the repetitive 'Lord Saddler' have some of the untranslated Spanish quotes. http://residentevil.wikia.com/wiki/Use_of_Spanish_in_Resident_Evil_4

    Thanks Moebius for the ideas and the link, really appreciate it. This is the update version of the cover box art:

    As you can see, I was trying to add the old school film texture on both front and back of the cover to feel dark and horror vibes on it instead of the bright yellow paper texture. Also, I've already replaced all Lord Saddler words with some of those Spanish quotes. What are your thoughts on it?

    I would put the letters closer together on the spine. For the black and white cover, I guess you got to try and make it flow more because the bottom is a lot bright than the top.

    Alright Moebius, I've just done updating my cover box art by bringing the letters on the spine closer and trying to make a flow on both front and back of the cover. This is how it looks like:

    What do you think? Looking much better than the previous one?

    There's a few small improvements but what I think on the front there's like an obvious cut off between the darker characters at the top.. and at the bottom the brighter village with their chief.

    Maybe somehow put the Resident Evil 4 logo in the middle and lower the village and villagers? I guess you can experiment with ways to make the cut off between these halves less obvious and so it flows more.

    The only thing I would change is the colour of the logo on the back. Instead of a flat black I'd try a dark grey with some grain/ texture to it to match the rest of the back cover better. Otherwise I think it's looking great.

    I'd suggest to make the cross outlined and a bit of a darker lighter grey tone (it gets lost in the color palette at the moment) and I'd stick with the previous box template (the style of your design, doesn't need an official PS4 template imo.)

    I agree.

    As you can see, I tried to go for gradient tool with darker grey to lighter grey. What are your thoughts?

    I'd say lose the emboss on the cross and maybe get rid of the stroke or make it a bit thinner (also the shadow on the '4' from the front of the box, seems a bit strong)

    Alright bro, this is the latest update version of the box art:

    As you can see, I reduced the level of black outer glow on the '4' and get rid of the emboss as well.

    What do you think? Looking much better?
