WOW! This is awesome man! I love the comicbook style of the front, and the layout of the back stays true to the original N64 boxes. Great second.

Just throwing this out there... this is my second account. I decided to make a new one a while back because my old one, pigeon_face, I had a friend make for me 4 years ago. I was just getting sick of it and decided to start fresh.

As for this box, it was sitting around half complete for a while and now that I finally have some downtime, I think I can start pumping out new boxes more frequently. The back is very similar to the official cover, btw. The front, on the other hand, was more freestyle and I did want to emphasize the comic theme. I brought the saturation down and put a beat-and-scatched-up texture over the box to show how the game has aged.

Thanks for the comments and favs, guys!

yeah, this is the original image of the Yoshi: link

I was planning on removing that extra arm, but never got around to it. I will probably update this with a non-mutant Yoshi and a new presentation... I wanted to keep it clean and this is all i came up with

Not liking the presentation too much but the box itself is fantastic.

fixed up the presentation. 3D is just more appealing for some reason. Also fixed the mutant Yoshi and added a simple spine.

Hope you likey

At first glance it appears to be a relatively basic Smash Bros. design executed in a solid manner. However, what I like most about this is how you've placed each character jumping out of their respective locales (or images representing them). It's a subtle workaround to the basic jumble of characters against a plain background that actually adds a lot to the overall quality. The comic sound effects are a bonus.

thanks man! I just couldn't find a background for flippin Pikachu!! I settled with a lil sunburst and that seemed to work out just fine. I really tried to bring something new to the table while trying to stay true the the N64-style box art. I think i succeeded.

After working with the 3D feeling of the characters jumping out up there backgrounds, I thought it would make a great concept for a SSB 3DS...
