Comment on HolyCowfartsBatman's Super Sonic Box Art / Cover.

Right, so basically, this is my favourite box... yes, I used an essence template... but that's only because Silent_Oblivion did an awesome job on it... and because this is what the game would be like (besides being a pile of crap because it would have been developed by the new SEGA team)

Unfortunately I can't edit it because I stupidly merged all the layers before finishing and it won't let me undo. Damn.

The actual size is HUGE and VGBA won't let me upload it... it's 16.4MB.

Massive credit goes to:
Sarashi for the logo
Silent_Oblivion for the template and screenborders
Planet_Renders for the... renders...
SEGA for the dev logos and original artwork
Google Images for screens and background.
IGN for the Super Sonic (on the front) and Super Shadow renders
And last but certainly not least...
Hux Flux Deluxe (of The Sonic Stadium) for the blurb... he did an awesome job!

Yes, there is no ESRB, this is in the days of the non-intrusiveness of them.

Enjoy and please rate.

The text on the back needs a lot more work. Centered Text is okay sometimes, but very complicated for copy text, specially with so small lines like you got here.

The screenshots are too far on the left side of the back. So, if it was a real box and bein printed the chances were high this would be cut off.

Once again, a really nice problem. However...not too sure about the whole Essence thing. I'm sure just putting a regular template on it would not only look better, but would make more sense.

About the actual box---awesome work here. The effects are great, and the front is looking especially sweet. The back is good as well, but I think a little more structure would help out...Sonic and Shadow(?) are looking a bit random just floating there. I thin that if you placed them in a way that they wouldn't seem so random, it would look a lot better.

The back text could use a little bit of work as well. I would get rid of the centering, as wasa-bi said...it looks a bit odd in this case, I think just a left-justifiable text would work fine. I've found that trying to find the right font can take a few good days of searching. So don't stop until you have the perfect font for your box, because it deserves it!

All in all a great submissions, just with a few flaws. Good job man, you're rapidly improving.

#4, Agreed could you pm them to me too :)
Would be appreciated.

Great box, fav!

Edit
I didnt even realize there was no ESRB, and like I said on Jevan's box, other users would usually get slated for that.

#3, not sure if a regular template would look better. could be the image is no longer working with a regular one, since its design would change the whole impression, but I do prefer (at least a bit more) regular templates as well.

I like the artwork and design put into this, and for that I will go ahead and fav, but I have one glaring issue with it. I'm not picking you out of the crowd here, but this goes out to all who are using the essence templates:

I get why you used an essence temp, but I say ditch the essence temp and just create a simplistic template that can showcase the art similarly. I'm thinking about developing a set of such templates myself. I like the freedom the essence temp offers, but the essence collection description just bothers me since most people don't use essence to actually capture the essence of the game in question.

I really like it.
But like Karma said, a normal template would not only look better, but make more sense.
If this was on a normal template and there was an age rating logo, I would prob fav it.
I doubt you'll edit it for lil 'ol me so I guess just a nice comment will do :D

I do somewhat agree that the Essense template gets thrown around too loosely these days, but I still appreciate its aesthetics over a normal commercial template. The less to obstruct the images, the better.

It's very clean and well done, that much is for sure. I don't really dig how plain the text is on the back (Just a different font would fix it) or the fact that Shadow's image is of a different style than Sonic's.

Overall very nice job, though.

Looks great, put i dislike the plain text! And after looking through all your credits and such, i'm assuming that there was no editing to anything on this cover, you just slapped renders and logos on a background. Correct me if i'm wrong. The box itself is great looking though
