Happy Kick Start 2011, everybody! I'm very glad to be contributing, and I'm thrilled to see all the great boxes being uploaded today. I hope it leads to a lot of inspiration for other people.

I've had the "Sign" idea for a L4D cover in mind for a long time, but I could never quite figure out what kind of sign would have LEFT and DEAD on it.

Thank you, Pan, for uploading a pretty decent 3D template I used to the resources section.

I think all things considered this is a feasible enough idea for a sign. For the best judgment, imagine the case standing at a 90 degree angle, so the spine is a corner of a building.

Very nice, I really like the sign on the wall idea, and it fits the L4D atmosphere well. It's a simple box, but it works perfectly for the game. Nice Kick Start logo edit too ;)

Wow, this is truly an essence, er, kickstart box. When you told me you wanted to make something in time for the event a week ago, I didn't think you'd actually get something done as amazing as this. Wow!

I just noticed, did you use GMod for this?

#7, Yeah. I posed the zombie model in Gmod against a wall with a Green Screen Material applied (Best thing I ever downloaded. Holy shit.) I took the brick texture from google images, along with a new hand for the zombie, and I made the sign from scratch.

The handprint is clever, though I'm basically saying what everyone else said.

I would have made the handprint a bit larger, but this is so awesome.

Man, it's great that you guys like this so much. I really didn't know what to expect. I so rarely upload boxes these days, I couldn't really tell if you guys would like the concept or not.

Thanks for all the compliments and favorites, gang.

Shwiggidy Shweet.
My only complaint is that while the sign is all grunged up and such, the text seems a little too un-touched. Especially with the outside paint all scratched and what-not.

Quite the good idea, using a zombie's hand print to represent the 4 in Left 4 Dead. I can always look to you to bring out the clever, unique designs on this site.

#18, Good point. I didn't even consider the fact that the border is scratched up but not the text.

Thanks for the compliment, SD. I always try to be new and exciting.
