Metroid Prime 2: Echoes box art cover
By avatar Pleiades 40 on April 21st, 2012
print No Printable Available

Metroid Prime 2 ranks amongst my favorite games of all time, and I felt I needed to follow up on my previous custom effort. Unlike Metroid Prime, which had a clean, anime-like style to it, I've gone with something darker and more heavily detailed. I wanted to express the game's darker nature. I might switch up the style again for Corruption.

Comments and critique are always welcome, of course.

The only small gripe I have is that the 'echos' is a little small, but to be fair, that is not a real issue in full view.
Beautiful beautiful BEAUTIFUL work!

Well, well. I wouldn't call this anything less than amazing. It looks like you really went out of your way to remove all the faults, and it shines through. I love the colour scheme, fits the game from what I've seen.
The only issues I have is that the "Echoes" part of the title is too small, and the font on the back is HORRIBLE and unfitting in my opinion and could be replaced with the title font, but I can overlook that as the rest is very good custom art. Great job overall.

I hadn't considered using the title font for the back. Along with increasing the size of "Echoes" I might see if I can work that into the design. Thanks for the comment, Sarashi.

Couldn't have hoped for a better response from such a respected artist. Thanks, Koopa.

Brilliant. But yeah, I don't like the font on the back.

avatar
Pleiades 40 [ 4 years ago ]

Alright, I took the advice concerning the font and text size and made a quick update. Echoes is now more legible, and I changed the upper half of the back's text with a cleaner font to better reflect the light side of Aether.

It made an excellent difference. I would FAV again if I could, but sadly, I can't :(
It's about damn time I followed you.

I see. Thanks for commenting. Any thoughts on the artwork itself?

@Pleiades It's pretty good. Have you thought of selling some of it as a separate set of prints on dA or anything? You're pretty talented.

Great to see you finally uploaded it, and I would say without a doubt that it's my favorite custom box on the site. Well, this probably is my favorite box on the site. Excellent job here.

I really like the front! The back is a bit too cluttered and hard to understand for my tastes, though.

deiviuxs 46 [ 4 years ago ]

Agree, the back does look very busy. The colors are nice though even if a little bit too strong.

Pleiades 40 [ 4 years ago ]

I see what you two mean, and I think it's due to the light crossing between Emperor Ing and Samus, which is illuminating the detail in the background. Samus and the Emperor should be isolated highlights, so I made this update.

Does that fix the issue?

Pan 47 [ 4 years ago ]

It's all good, the only that that is bugging me is that Samus on the front looks like she is standing in place AND taking a step forward at the same time. beyond that though the artwork is very nice.

Pleiades 40 [ 4 years ago ]

It's merely the way she's standing. One leg is placed slightly in front of the other, almost as if they're crossed.

Excellent, reminds me of your old MP box. I didn't know you're SD1833, but still, awesome box.

Thanks for pointing that out, I was wondering why it looked so similar to this:

Anyway, about the art, stellar work. I like it even better than the last one with its more vibrant colors. This artwork makes a really great poster.

I could see how that would be confusing, although I do allude to a prior Metroid Prime cover in the description. Thanks, you two.
