ALL CREDIT GOES TO NEOGAF MEMBER BERNBAUM!

I am going to repeat that throughout this message.

This was the first box I did after a hiatus from Photoshop. I was so inspired by NEOGAF MEMBER BERNBAUM's cover that I wanted to recreate it for a full box. The version I did is slightly altered, SLIGHTLY. I wanted to go for a retro magazine feel, so I added a spine and staples, weathering, and a few minor updates to differentiate it. I also wanted to keep the PS3 template, but give it a retro feel as well, so I hope it turned out well.

ALL CREDIT GOES TO NEOGAF MEMBER BERNBAUM!

I know that the American History X box (Hellknight?) brought with it quite a bit of controversy, so that is why I want to make sure that you see I am not taking credit. I just loved NEOGAF MEMBER BERNBAUM's cover so much, and I would love to display it in my collection that I did what I could.

I originally brought this to the critique thread when I first joined, and got some tips, but in the end I decided to keep it pretty much the same. I didn't want to make the buildings so detailed because I think it would have detracted from the simplicity of the box, but that was just me.

Again, go check out BERNBAUM's original cover right here:

ALL CREDIT GOES TO HIM. If you have a problem that I copied it, don't favorite. It's that simple. I used it to improve my minimal skills and I think it turned out well, and I've been having trouble lately creating anything.

Oh my god its so clear! YOU RIPPED OFF BERNBAUM FROM NEOGAF.
YOU FKING THEIF.
YOU ARE GONNA GET BANNED.
AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN GIVE HIM CREDIT.


Hahaha, I love it. It's awesome. It's a nice homage to his work, but you have made it your own. Fave.

I hope I made it apparent enough that BERNBAUM FROM NEOGAF CREATED THE COVER AND I TARANTINO'D IT.

Regardless, thank you very much, I really appreciate it. Anybody know how to decrease a file size for a HQ image without decreasing the quality? I have that problem with 75% of my printables, and this is one that I wish people could see full size.

#3, Hahaha, I was joking :P
And, no I don't really know. Just the standard making it a jpg instead of a png.

Not bad, I instantly recognized the design. Interesting typography on the back, which I'm liking. There could have been more variation in the text size, but that was probably intentional.

After reading the quote on the back, I have the biggest craving to play Bioshock.

#6, slightly intentional, mostly unintentional. This was before I really got heavily into using typography in my boxes, so I just mixed a little chaos and got it to fit on there.

This is really nice, I love the template you're using, really nice template. You should put border on the back too.

#9, thank you so much for the comment! I was thinking of a border around the back, but I decided against it. In a day or two I will quick throw it on there and see how it looks!

#10, thank you too sir!


If you haven't noticed, one of those pesky Little Sister's drew a picture of a Big Daddy somewhere on the magazine... Let's see if anyone can spot it...

It's cool but the typography kills it for me. The back needs a lot of work.
