Hi ! My new box, Half Life ² . So first, thanks Sens for the template (a PS3 Template I edited, hope he won't mind :[ )

I've been working on it for weeks, I didn't really know what to make. I'm quite pleased with it, even though I know it's not perfect at all.

It's also my first 3D box, the perspective was hard to effectuate.

Well tell me what you think, I'd be glad to hear your opinion ;)

Nice concept and execution. A tiny nitpick is that the ESRB logo on the back could be a bit bigger. Other than that, great job. ^^d

Thanks guys ! :]

Gunslinger, argh, you're right, it's not really readable...

Thanks Manuel, I know, they're quite different.

GameRoomProductions, well it's the best compliment I've ever received, haha ! :D

Very nice box, though the front and back don't complement each other very well, IMO.

Everything looks neat, but I dislike the back (it doesn't have the HL feel to it).

I liked the general idea of the wanted poster, and the resistance propaganda is still pretty inappropriate. The inside feels really gimmicky, nothing is really relevant to the games, and the front looks like really generic sillhouette cover that you see thrown around so often in the Essence collection boxes. Throwing some sillhouettes along with some splash brushes and abstract shapes isn't good graphic design unless you're designing T-shirts for Wal-Mart.

Lastly, it seriously looks like you wanted to design two different HL2 boxes and decided to use one idea for the case and another idea for the sleeve.

They don't mesh.

Oddmania 40 [ 7 years ago ]

TheSlyder, I understand your point of view. The back and the front are different, don't really blend and the back doesn't fit the game.

Thanks for giving me your opinion :]

I like the slip more than the actual box. The front of the box looks OK, but the renders of characters and guns are darker and could blend better into the red splatter. I like how much detail went into the back too, but I don't like the metal looking texture it's all placed on.

Overall it's pretty good though, those are just the things I don't like about it.

Argh, Pan, I didn't see they were darker :[ Anyway I don't really understand what you dislike with the metal texture (used as a kind of desk).

Thanks guys :]

Wow, I really like this. The bloody special effects really say "Half-Life 2" To me. The back is very detailed because of the notepad and pistol. +fav

Thanks a lot, Archnophobia, that's kind of you, but I don't think I really need it, even though this may be very useful as a .PSD file !
I've already got good ESRB logos. Maybe because of the size of the one on the back ? Yep, that's way too small, space was running out :/

This isn't Masterworks quality. Sorry. I've seen much better boxes which havn't received Masterworks (hmm, my work). Good effort though.
