More of the usual from me, I guess you could say. I always liked the idea of the Triforce of Wisdom being broken to pieces in this game... and as such, I decided to recycle my Megaman 6 concept since it had a "glass shatter" effect in 8 pieces. The iconic triforce image is littered throughout the front. Logo is from scratch, based on the title screen and the Japanese logo. I'd like to plug digital-eel.com for the sword image and tatmania.com for the ivy. You may recognize the map as belonging to Melora.

I guess that's about all I have to say about this piece. Just a little something I did to save me from boredom. Comments always welcome. Enjoy.

Really epic, but the full edition of the Hylian Crest wasn't revealed then...
Still 5/5, FAV!

Excellent job, it looks quite simple on the surface but it's very effective.

Beautiful design, pitch-perfect. 100/100, a great way to represent LoZ.

#5: Indeed you speak the truth. The one thing that never sat right with me about this game is the fact that there are no towns or many people about. The few that are around are hiding in caves or trying to sell you the most expensive stuff around. It got me thinking, is this place even worth saving? So, being able to throw a few things in from the current games I think breathes a some newer life into the old titles. And of course, it's a great excuse to flash the Triforce around some more. Can't make a Zelda box without the Triforce in there.

#6: I can't get enough of simplicity. I always go into a box with the mindset that it's a product sitting on a shelf, and it's competing for a sale against many other products. If it doesn't grab you in the first few seconds of seeing it, chances are you'll be leaving with something else in your hand. I've done this with a few other boxes, but I think this one has been the most successful thus far.

Thanks everyone! I wasn't sure how this was going to be received and I'm glad it's a hit!

#10, You're right. Legend of Zelda was boring, and you've made it better.

Great work and really well put together overall. It's simple but professional looking. Something about the logo doesn't sit quite right with me though. I think it's that the sword looks quite detailed yet the text is blocky as is the triforce with just a fine edge around it. It's still one of the nicer boxes I've seen so far browsing on here and honestly the criticism's are minor.
