Not exactly capturing the essence of the game, but still kicks ass.

#4, essence has turned more into something to use because you have more room to work.

Either way, this is really nice.
Do you happen to have the original paint splatter you used on the front?

Wow. Great, just great. I do agree that is not really fitting for Essence, but it defiantly deserves a fav IMO. That really is a different style to present a Sonic game in and i think you've pulled it off quite well.

Easily, now my favorite box by you Eggboy, excellent work!!

I'm not liking this whole trend of 'bleeding paint' as pioneered by Street Fighter IV and EA Sports boxes.

I'm sorry, but I agree with Koopa here. This doesn't fit the Criterion/Essence style AT ALL. It's well made though.

Stunning work man. The artwork you've used is a bit to descriptive for an Essence design in my opinion, but the design is really nice.

Very nice, but I don't think it quite captures the essence of the game... :/

#24, That's why I don't like Essence boxes. People usually don't seem to gather the concept of determining the essence of the game...

I really like it. But I have a very negative opinion of using splatters like that.

It's gorgeously simple but there's a little too much white and the text is too light. Still a great box though.

I both like it and dislike it. It looks messy but at the same time stylish. I can't say I'm a fan of those splatters, but it's a bit more unique than other Sonic boxes. The typography is really generic. I don't know why you used such a simple logo, when the picture on the front is actually quite the opposite of simple. It feels like you made it an "essence" box so it looks more artsy-fartsy, when in fact it doesn't do what an essence box should do. People seem to think that essence means simple-but-stylish. That should only apply to games that actually ARE "simple but stylish" and that isn't many games. If anything, a lot of other Sonic Adventure 2 boxes on this site capture the game's essence better than this. That's not to say this isn't good though.

To summarise, I'm very on the edge about it. It's definitely a respectable effort though, and while I haven't seen much of your recent work, it seems to be an improvement.

Eggboy, I've been on this site longer than you have, but, you have most deffinetly raced ahead of me. You're a good artist, and an inspiration to us all. *Salute*

#31, not everything like that is "splatters".

Design is kinda good, but the logo is not working for me. Besides I think something is missing on the front - could be too much white space between the charakters.

It's not that I want it, but how many point does it take to get Master works? Really, just curious.

#47, They're very clearly splatters. Even if they weren't, haphazard "spotting" like that just doesn't look good. It looks cliche' and reminiscent of Wal-Mart graphic T-shirts.
