Phantasy Star Universe: Complete box art cover
By avatar D_Nikolaos 24 on May 2nd, 2012

Alright, as most of you might know my first attempts at boxarting were of Phantasy Star Universe, and we all know that they honestly suck in comparison to a lot of boxes here.

This time I really wanted to show some improvement; I wanted to make a completely original Custom Case for PSU/PSU:AoI
And so I steeled myself and got to it, making my own screenshots, rendering everything, typing synopsizes and legal text, as well as making a custom wallpaper to use as the background to the case.

I also decided to make my own logo for this box, and as any Phantasy Star fan can see, it's heavily based on PSO's logo. I decided that trying to recreate the font used in the original PSU's logo would be an increasingly difficult, & almost impossible for me at my current level.

All-in-all I think that this came out rather nicely! XD

Yeah I'm really glad that you guys helped me out with this too, I don't think it would've gotten near this good without it.

So big effort was made with this cover. Why don't you upload the printable? I saw your printable, it was cool. Your custom logo is nice, and fits well with the game's theme. Overall, it's a good box art.

Nothing extraordinary here, but it's pretty and official-looking, and this is just enough for me to put in my favorites.

Alright I'll post a printable version soon, but just so you know, this box wasn't originally made at the correct size or resolution for printing. I was just lucky that when it printed out it ended up looking great even after I re-sized it to Printable size! XD

And that's what I was going for, I wanted it to look official, because I wanted it for my PSU Collection lol

@Higashi89
Yeah, I know I was disappointing to find that out, but even more so, after I found out that the Xbox versions still has servers online. Either way if I want to play online I could go onto some Blue Burst Private Servers, or wait until PSO2 comes to the US since it will be mostly free to play. ^-^

Nice layout on the entire box, well done.

Only a couple minor things though (which doesn't necessary needs changing) but the legal info could be upped a bit and less closer to the barcode and secondly the Online logo on the front seems a bit to big in my opinion.

I never played this game, but it's good to see some more PS2 boxes on here.

Thanks for the compliment on this, I love making PS2 Boxes, since those are the ones I end up needing irl! XD

Actually I agree with you on both accounts.
I had to resize the online logo from a scan of the first PSU's boxart, so it's understandable that I messed up and left it a little too big.

@D_Nikolaos It's not really destracting from the overall design, so it not really a big deal, just a nitpick ;)
