My newest box.

This box took me around 3 days to do, i had to edit everything myself from wallpapers and selective others, originally this was going to be a collector's edition cover, but i couldn't get it right, so i decided to do my first essence box, which as you all know, essence boxes are simplistic.

Font on the back doesn't really match and this isn't really 'the essence' of the game. In fact it's quite the opposite--it's far too girly and proper. There wasn't a single flower in the entire game and this cover is overflowing with it.

I'm sorry, but this is a far cry from the 'Essence' of Heavenly Sword.

And the text on the back is wrong. There was only ONE person who wanted the Heavenly Sword and that was King Bohan. Not even Nariko wanted to wield it.

You need to play the game and understand it before you attempt an Essence box.

All Essence boxes can be 'simplistic' but that doesn't mean all 'simplistic' boxes can be Essence. This is simplistic, but it doesn't capture the Essence.

- You also used the word 'warrior' 5 times in your short text on the back. Use a thesaurus.

- The presentation looks weird with the spine covering Nariko's face like that.

But overall....I'm not feeling it. I bet a lot of work went into it but it doesn't 'feel' like Heavenly Sword at all. Frankly, I don't know what it feels like because I have a table cloth with an almost identical pattern of flowers on it. Maybe if you tweaked it and added some glow and neon it could be a PixelJunk Eden box. Or if you lightened it up it could be a Fl0wer box, but it's about as far removed from Heavenly Sword as it can be.

#5, Girly ?, well i wanted to do something different, something special, something like this, alot of work did go into it, and the presentation covering her face, i didn't even notice.

Flowers, yeah, i put them there because i felt it suited the box.

Thanks, i appreciate your comment, maybe i can change it up a bit, i have time to do so, maybe i could switch up these things tomorrow.

Font: from bank gothic to Odemplisk (Like a hand written font)
I'll change the wallpaper, add a sort of glowing effect and switch up the background to make it more "DARK".

Other then that thanks, once again all comments are appreciated to help me become better.

Darker always = better with dealing with box arts.

Heavenly Sword is rated T. But still other than the rating being wrong, this box is awesome.
