So Mafia 2....
As you can easily understand I have put a lot of work on this one and in my eyes it turned out great.Many of the elements put were created from scratch,like the newspaper cuts,story overview,Vito's portofolio etc..
Full view is absolutely necessary.

A big thank to InsomniumX who gave some great ideas in the forums and Indexenos for the amazing template.
ps.I also added a some kind of an easter egg..

Damn,I like it! Especially the "case reopned", it gives it that "MAFIA'S BACK!" feeling:)

Great job

I like this a lot, except the only problem I got with this is that the differences between quality in this one. Such as the back, the font is bold and strong, as the other bits of the font is blurry. Also some parts such as the paper and notes are blurry as some aren't. Try to keep your quality high at all times.

Overall great box! I love the "MOB" feel to this.

#5 You found it
#7 Adding one now....
#8 Yeah I know...I was just too tired from adding shadosws to almost all objects and got bored to match them right.This one took me way too more time than any other I made.I've printed it out and it is not notable at all.Anyways lesson taught.
Thanks to all for commenting and favin'

Why don't you save it as .png?

Midnight 36 [ 9 years ago ]

My covers always exceed the 7.5 MB limitation.For example this one was almost twice the size it is now.I had to shrink it down and save in .jpeg cause in .png it was around 30 MB.

#25, All you need to do is shrink down the entire PNG image in paint by 50%.

#28, How much smaller was the file size when you tried it?

[ Reply ]


avatar
Midnight 36 [ 9 years ago ]

I tried it the front which was 2300x3280 and 16 MB and shrunk it to half the resolution which was in size 3.9 MB.

Sentroavium 20 [ 9 years ago ]

Do this.

Save the entire image, in full size, as a .PNG file.

Open it in Paint, and shrink it by 50%, what is the final file size?

Midnight 36 [ 9 years ago ]

About 7 Mb without the presentation.

#32, Upload the entire cover with the presentation, the full 30 MB file, and send it to me, I gotta try somethin'.

Nice boxart I must say, But think the back it TOO busy, I mean no-ones desk is that messy.

#37 It's not someone's desk.It more like the contents of the folder.

It seems pretty weird with a front so simple and a back so complex. mabye you should make the back less crowded.
