Here it is at long last --- my Mario Kart Wii. Special Thanks to Mugglesman111 for a number of images and suggestions... hence why I put him in the presentation! Hope you like m8! LOL

Anyway.. as usual, took a different approach to this boxart... as it's partly based on the N64 Mario Kart cover... and apart from the characters, most of the images were draw by hand in photoshop -- track, landscape, TVs, signs, tubes, etc.. which is why it took lomger to do. Wanted the back to have screenshots and other descriptions part of the track instead of just placing them on the back. Anyway... hope you like! ;)

Amazing, absolutely incredible! Is what I would say if this box wasn't as good as it is, because this box is beyond words. This box shows so much effort and time, and there's just something about it that just really draws you in. The back is just brilliant, just amazing, great job!

Edit - Fixed a few typos.

#2, Glad you like MM111! Had to put the little 'toy' Luigi kart in the image! LOL --- I was going to do this right from the start.. but with Mario obviously, but since you helped out... switched to Luigi. ;)

OH... I'll be putting my original Photoshop composition on the Learners thread when I get to rename the layers etc.. so anyone with photoshop can see how this made. ;)

Idk Marker...this one just looks weird. It's too jumbled, and not nearly as design-savvy as most of your boxes. I just don't like it. 3/5.

wow. great as always! i can't stand that logo! i know it's the official one, but i still hate it! it just looks so repetitive to have the wii logo twice on a box. luckily it's not so annoying on your box! :)

***********************************

Uploaded the Printable 2D Version (27.4 x 18.4cm 300dpi)
Just click on the "View Printable" under the preview. Then save as.
You can use something like CDCoverPro to print it, or like me, load it up into Photoshop, thurn it 90 degrees --- since it's a Wii cover and ir's White, I suggest SELECT ALL, and then Stroke it with a 1px black so that when you print it out, you can cut it out more easily. Print directly to A4 -- and I suggest using inkjet coated paper 140gms or better.

I'll bet you anything Gamestop or someone pirates your printable cover.

Hell, I'll pirate your cover, buy this game, switch out the covers, and then trade it in. :P

#21, Dont know about that I mean its really good but I just noticed that the course color scheme (or graphics0) doesnt seem to fit along with the characters.

i think its good, but i'd say is flawed by perspective issues (ex. none of them on the front actually look like they're on the track)

also i dont really like the 'real' tires and the added fire on bowser :\

the muggles thing is pretty funny though.

I love it, but to be really official looking the spine would have to be white not that it would look better I'm just saying.

I love it and i think its one of your best, fav.

#40, there is no DK artwork from the game yet (i think) so that's acceptable in my book.

#43, Thanks, might update it at some point. Obviously, at the time of making the box, there weren't any images of DK.

In fact, since I made the box.. I've seen 3D rendered images of the weapons (bananas, shells, mushrooms etc), plus better pics of the wheel etc.

***UPDATE To V2***

Thanks to oxol for link to newer DK image, so added him to the boxart. Not the best quality since I work in hi-res, had to reverse him (and redo the DK logos the correct way) and blend him in. ;) It's a good job I put him on the back, since he's holding a red shell --- yeah, I predicted that! LOL
