So here is my first Essence box. I'm hoping it's good enough for qwerty to invite me back into the club. Alot of time went into this, and alot of revisions have been made, but I think the end result came together beautifully. I really tried to make something that would stand out from all the other essence boxes that were being made, and at the same time capture the essence of the game. I hope I succeeded. Thanks goes out to everyone who help with the WIP. I hope you all like the box. Favs/comments always appreciated. And enjoy!

i can see all the effort in this. great job!
i think that rank 6's should still be allowed in, but have to post their box in the group's discussion for approval.

I saw this in the group before I was kicked too :(... And it is still one of my favorites to come out of it. You make it clear with the blue and the water what the game is about, and with the lone small sail boat, that it is also about you alone being the hero. It has a great epic look to it, and I really think this is what essence collection is all about. Great work, +fav!

Even if your not part of Essence, this is the best one yet.

I'll go as far as to say that it's my favorite Wind Waker box on the site.

Aside from Rossauges, this is a close second for the best Essence box. The wave is epic in style and even size to an extent. Personally, i would let you back into the group, you've certainly got the goods to be part of it.

In the mean time, enjoy this fav!!!

Really good.
I'm really getting an open, adventurous vibe, which is perfect for a Zelda box.
Faved & Invited back to the group.

It's awesome but the way the sea is stretched at the bottom right is a bit odd to me.

Apart from that it's amazing.

#13, With any luck it will be someday. I'm even whoring out my sig with a link to it in hopes people will stumble across it. 33 favs as of this post, I'm not sure how the points system works, but it's gotta be getting close by now.

#14, I saw it in that thread too, thanks Legoslayer. I think it will find its way in eventually

Oh shit. Since this whole Essense thing started people have been creating the types of boxes that I've been begging for for the last three years! It's a dream come true. It really is.

This box is amazingly simple and yet it looks amazing. It's attractive, and it also helps to convey what you'll be doing for most of the game (Unfortunately.)

So good.

So good.

#16, Thank you. If you want in the Essence club make an essence box, and submit it to qwerty. If he deems that your box captures the essence of the game he might send you an invite. Although it seems like this fad has died down just as quickly as it had taken off. As for this box I was going for an epic feel for the front with a concentration on exploration. Hence the tiny link sailing into the horizon of the vast ocean.

#17, Thanks for your vote of confidence. It has to be getting close by now. I'm sure someday it will find its way into the mythical HOF.

#28, Clearly you don't understand that this is an Essence box.

Besides did you really have to go look up 4 different Wind waker boxes and comment on them, thus bumping them to the top...

#28,
1, I count 7 characters on this box, 8 if you count the boat.
2, This is an early addition to the essence collection which had a pretty minimalistic approach in the collection's earlier days. The idea of the essence collection is to capture the essence of the game without the addition of marketing materials like ratings and dev logos. I put a tiny Link sailing into the horizon of an enormous ocean to capture the adventuring spirit of the game.

Organized, designed wonderfully, simplistic yet complex. Awesome is not enough to describe this work of art. Excellent work.

I really question myself on why I missed this one out.

9/10. I think this might actually take rocket science.
