Absolutely incredible job across the board. The bright colors and humongous Bowser on the front really match Mario Galaxy 2. I also really like the Mario and Toshi render on the front, extremely well made and a nice change from the render used on nearly every other Galaxy 2 box on the site. IMO, this is easily your best box yet.

Thanks guys =]

I tried to polish it up as much as possible before leaving to India tomorrow.

Things to note
--------------

- Recreated a nornal Bowser render to make it look Galaxy-ish
- Created Mario Yoshi render from many different renders (I even used parts of Luigi and colored them red)
- I made the cosmic guide from Rosalina's original render

Enjoyy

This is absolutely amazing. It is easily the best Galaxy box on the site, and one of the best boxes on the site of any genre.

Looking at the Masterworks for the last week or so, and analysing every one, I'd say from first glance. This looks FAR more appealing than them, in every way. Best, sexiest and most slick looking Box I've ever seen. Brilliant.

I love the official SMG2 and I didn't think anybody would be able to match it. This one comes extremely close. Excellent work.

This is in the top three boxes on the entire site. Don't ask me to pick out the other two as they'll be nowhere near as good as this is.

TheSlyder 40 [ 6 years ago ]

Hot damn! This is nice! May I make a couple suggestions, though?

Bowser is way too big, in my opinion. If he were smaller, and the gang was bigger, I think it would look significantly better. It would also help emphasize that Mario and friends have the situation under control.

Also, the grass looks really weird due to the fact that the only blades you see are the ones around everyone's feet. If I were you I'd throw in some stray blades here and there around the grassy area so it doesn't look so suspicious around their feet.

#26, Well, in the game, Bowser is like 99% bigger than in the original SMG.

#24, It does come close but I like the officially more. For reasons Slyder mentioned.

EDIT: Now that I look at it, why did you use the mario-shaped planet twice?

Wow, got Masterworks it one day. But it deserved it. Why did you say in the wip thread that you didn't like the back? This is in the top 10 for best box posted.

I love this. I just thought for the circles on the back, you could have changed the colors instead of red and blue. Overall O>O

Congratulations on the Masterworks, you really deserve it. After looking through the other Masterworks and Hall of Fames, this is my favourite box on the site.

Congrats on MasterWorks. This is defiantly your best. Everything about this box is great. The back layout is one of the most original layouts I have seen in a long time.

Manuel_Alejandro95 28 [ 6 years ago ]

My only complaint is the fact that you placed the same Mario-faced planet on both front and back.

This is definitely one of the greatest boxes on the site.
Can you please provide a printable version, as I said I'd request one on the forums?

The box looks very pretty and your layout is nice, but the use of that Luigi render and other non galaxy renders kills it for me. I know I say this all the time like a broken record but out of everything a person could do that always seems to be the number one thing that can kill a design for me.

YoshiStar 46 [ 6 years ago ]

Thanks guys =] I didn't expect it to get this much praise, because honestly, the more and more I look at it, the more and more I dislike it. I was in a rush when working on the back. That's why there are no custom renders on it and I reused Starship Mario.

Bowser was purposely meant to be gigantic, as I wanted to kinda capture the game's story in the boxart as well (Bowser is gigantic in the majority of the game, and its a part of the plot).

I agree with Pan about the non-Galaxy renders, but only for the ones I didn't edit. Most of them are edited and given that Galaxy-glow. I didn't do it just for the sake of doing it, but rather so I could still create it according to the layout in my head. For example, there are pretty much no other Mario & Yoshi renders that would fit well in that spot on the front. I agree that I should've worked on Luigi and Peach a bit more.

Thanks people :) I'm in London right now, btw. India in a few more days. But no Photoshop :( No printable.

Wow! All visual elements including 3D renders and screenshots were professionally organised in a clean, effective layout and I like how you displayed screenshots of Yoshi's forms for further emphasis.

If your cover design became official, I believe that it would catch someone's eye within 1 second!

Its such a great box that i check it out each time it appears on the random Masterworks. The dynamic colors on the front make it look so beautiful.

Really great work, dude.
