MARKER 48 [ 7 years ago ]

Welcome to my entry to the "Be Your True Design party Fall '09", and as you can see, it's Assassin's Creed II. There's been quite a few great AC2 boxes here, and since there's not been new artwork apart from the ones on the front of magazines with the horrible Title logos at an angle, I thought I'll just use the retail cover image and change things a bit... in the 'present day' (or future?) with the Animus machine... and the hexagons representing Desmonds memories flowing into the past --- to the back of the cover, which has the usual Da Vinci artwork etc. This took around 2-3 weeks to make although partly due to my PC catching a virus and having to format/reinstall... but it was rather time consuming as I had to cut out every hexagon -- rotated, perspective, extrude, and shadowed.. all of them on a separate layer ;)

OH... look out for the ACII symbols :)

Email this to Ubisoft to show them how much their official box sucks in comparison. Outstanding.

Thanks everyone for comments.

As per usual... 300dpi Printable included as well, should anyone want to print it out. US version and matching discs available at console-covers when I get round to making them (tomorrow)... too late now.. time for bed! :)

I'm very sorry,but this isn't what I expected out of your 'comeback'

I can obviously see the effort, and I like most of the design choices you've made, but something just doesn't do it for me.. I don't know, I can't put my finger on it..
My apologies.

Nicely done. Those masks off the the right on the front look a bit random, but it's no big deal. They probably could have been used on the back in a unique way.

very well done overall!

This is nice... I wasn't sure I'd like the front cover - Having that art and all, but the back's effort alone deserves a favourite. The front looks good too, though, no less.

The front, I would think it's kind of unappealing. But it's stylishly done.

The back....wow. Just incredible.

A masterful box from a box artist master. :)
Always a pleasure to see your work Mr. Marker.

MARKER 48 [ 7 years ago ]

Thanks to everyone that made this into the Masterworks :)

@34.. yeah, the masks originally were behind like the DNA screen, but it didn't look good, so brought it forward and made them drip blood onto the Ubisoft logo.

OH, there are 2 spelling mistakes on the box, but fixed on the printable, before anyone complains :)

"Maybe" get a few more boxes up before the end of the year to get to 100? :D

Now, this is the stuff that can make most of us never touch graphics programs anymore! I'm in no position to comment, only one question.... why not for PS3???? :D

Awesome box, nothing I could've made. I love the whole thing and the masks are awesome. They look like DNA, that's pretty sick. Kind of dramatic. Anyway, definitely MW worthy.

I've noticed that you use a lot of 'torn' and 'curled' paper effects.
