Comment on Grand's ICO Box Art / Cover.

Started with the original Japanese box art, stretched it across both the front and back, rendered out the structures, characters, and shadows, divided the sky and the land, did a bunch of layer work and filtering all across the board.

Here's the original Japanese box art for reference:

Quite a lot of work--the .psd file was 300MB by the time I was done.

The summery typography in the back doesn't fit with the design. It's a good simplistic concept.

Looks good. Agreed with #3 on the typography - this font isn't the best choice.

Looks a lot like the Official PAL box.

#7, Of course it does. I used the same piece of artwork and posted it as a reference. But if you view full you can see all of the changes I made--especially with the sky.

#8, I think it bears too much of a resemblance be considered an original or even your piece of art. Sure, you edited it, but to me it is the same idea, just with the rearranging of pieces.

You can see the clone tool at the top Grand :P However this is a great resurrection.

#9, All box art that is not drawn by the user is a 'rearranging of pieces' depending on what assets are available for the game. Unfortunately, there are only two pieces of artwork for Ico that could qualify for an Essence box--this one, and an oil painting of Ico & Yorda.

The many filters applied, the rendering, the halftone sky--I know I put effort into this but I didn't want to change it too much just to make it look different. Because then it wouldn't look as good.

I like it. Even though its the same art as the other box, it has a WAY different feel.
I maybe would have formatted the text on the back a little different if it were mine but its still definitely a fave
