So one of my friends had me make him a Halo cover last year and he asked me again for this years halo so here we are. This was not planned but then the Hurricane hit the east coast and that freed up my schedule for this. I like the way it came out and I know its bright but thats what I wanted it to look like so in my eyes, it came out just the way i was hoping. That is all, you guys done like it then there is nothing I can do about it :) And thanks stevencho for all the help :) I appreciate it
Comments and favs appreciated.

I think that Halo 4 logo should be black on the front and white on the spine but whatever it's still so good...

thanks :) i actually did try that, it looked good white on the spine but the black on the front, it stood out WAY too much and clashed a little too much with the rest of the front :/ thanks though

Same opinion I had before, the high contrast takes away from just about everything.

I am of the same opinion as Throavium; overall design is okay, felt more risks could have been taken with the back but it's an okay effort overall. However, I think it all falls a little flat with the front... it's just poorly designed (you can even see the image to the left of Chief cut off,) and the contrast/exposure hurts to look at. While I understand that's how you designed it, designing something that intentionally doesn't look good seems a bit odd to me.

Of course this is not to deter you from your original plan and I don't mean to just be nitpicking at everything, but that's one more honest opinion I guess

What looks good is an opinion. And so far, it has gotten a nice reaction from this site so how can you sit there and say I intentionally deisigned something that doesnt look good?...Just because you dont like it? So your telling me that what you think is good should be seen as good in everyones eyes? And whats the point of commenting and saying that you also dont like the contrast? Seems like a waste of time to me when I already knew going in it was bright and some people were not going to like it, as i clearly stated in my description, for the soul reason so you DONT just come on here and tell me you dont like how bright it is.

The images around Master Chief are cut off around him yes because I did in on purpose, making them blend in with him looked on in my opinion. The part on the foot, i didnt notice until I looked on it through my mac, I use a PC for this and the blending and lighting changes when I switch between computers to do this so I sometimes miss stuff and I was just going to ignore that. And I made it bright on purpose, not to make it look bad. So thank you :)

Why are you being so aggressive all of a sudden? And when on Earth did I say that my opinion reflects the opinion of the majority?

"The images around Master Chief are cut off around him yes because I did in on purpose, making them blend in with him looked on in my opinion. The part on the foot, i didnt notice until I looked on it through my mac, I use a PC for this and the blending and lighting changes when I switch between computers to do this so I sometimes miss stuff and I was just going to ignore that."

I honestly have no idea what that is supposed to mean, but it seems to be like you're saying that even though I have pointed out some design flaws, in MY (please make sure to read that at MY, and not THE SITE'S) opinion, you're just gonna ignore it anyways. In any case, thank you for telling me my opinion is essentially worthless. I'll make sure to steer clear of your boxes from here on out.

@Patches lol i wasnt being aggressive, You said "designing something that doesnt look good is odd" you were saying that like i designed something specifically know that it doesnt look good...And what i was trying to tell you is that even though you might not think it looks good...doesnt mean I dont and others dont. And pointing out flaws is good, and if you every read any of the comments on my boxes, you will see I appreciate them. What Im not a fan of is someone constantly repeating what has already been said, like the bightness. I already stated it in my description and so had Throav...lets move on, the box is bright. And I was explaing to you why the flaws that you found were there....i wasnt yelling at you for pointing them out, i was telling you I noticed them too and why there were there like the character being cut off on the left. You can stay cleer of my boxes it doesnt matter to me. So thank you for your opinion and you clearly took my response the wrong way

You need to learn how to take critique properly, If someone says that the brightness and contrast is too high then you should see if you can find a solution to the problem instead of just leaving it. It is your cover and you can do what you want with it, But you need to TONE down the contrast as it isn't visually appealing, Hopefully you don't get aggressive with me like you did Patches.

I know how to take a critique. The thing is that i talked about the brightness in the wip of this cover. And i did take it into consideration, and just because someone doesnt like it doesnt mean im going to change something about it lol at the end of the day...its my cover and my design. When someone points out flaws and mistakes on my covers 99% i will change it, but the way i want to. And the brightness is not a flaw, its a design choice and preference and just because a few people dont like it doesnt mean i need to change it. I do not post covers here to please everyone else, i post my covers because i like them and work hard on them, and if others like them then okay thats good. I hope that clears things up and u dont take this aggressivly. Thank you

@Mub So by me not changing something that someone might not like is me not knowing how to take a critique?....
I usually take into consideration what is said and then if i feel like it also should be changed then i will do it. You cant please every single person...and if i changed the contrast then i will no longer like the box because its not how i wanted it to turn out and if i would imagine it would be blissfully ignorant to always change every single thing that anyone doesnt like on all my boxes...i didnt realize that was wrong. Sorry for that

@Deividas Well it seems alot of the opinions on the thread and on here go towards the idea that the brightness is a problem. You're just acting stubborn.

[ Reply ]

avatar
Deividas 47 [ 4 years ago ]

@Mub I dont mean to act stubborn. And yea some people dont like the brightness but you have to remember i knew that going in that some wouldnt. Like what if there was something that you liked out there and a lot of others didnt....would u just stop liking it because others tell u to not?...i Personally liked the brightness. Im not liking it because im trying to piss people off or anything its just something i like, U know? So i am sorry if i am making some of you angry or something because i wont change that.

@Deividas Not saying you should, but you're just going out of your way to label other's opinions on the matter as essentially worthless.

Deividas 47 [ 4 years ago ]

@Mub Not my intention, I apologize, I was just trying to say that I know its bright and to constantly bring it up is just not necessary and a little frustrating thats all. I could have worded it differently. Thanks mub

Way too much contrast and the logo placement is odd.

[ Reply ]

avatar
Deividas 47 [ 4 years ago ]

The logo was tough do to the nature of the logo itself and the overall design of this. I had it other ways but i thought this way it looked better than other positions. If i could find a better way to do it i would.

Comments are only suggestions, whether or not the boxartist takes the suggestions and makes adjustments is up to he or she.

[ Reply ]

avatar
Mub 39 [ 4 years ago ]

Comments are also critique.

Critique piles up into becoming important as more and more people critique the same flaw.

Perceived Flaw turns to actual flaw.

Flaws are meant to be fixed.

@Mub ¯¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You've got a point.

Deividas 47 [ 4 years ago ]

@Mub That is true. But also this does have 29 favs and only 4 people who said they outright dont like the brightness, so I think the majority likes the outcome, I could be wrong though idk. And so do I. And Its not like im saying I dont know what you guys are talking about and this isnt bright because I do understand where you guys are coming from but I think that if I like the way it looks and im okay with the brightness, shouldn't my decision to leave the brightness alone outweigh you guys telling me to change it? Or is that not reasonable and im out of line here...?

@Deividas I'm just talking about his thoughts.

It's absurd to disregard sound advice for your personal preference.

[ Reply ]

avatar
Deividas 47 [ 4 years ago ]

@Mub Oh i do get what your saying but I think that you can absolutely disregard any advice, even if it might be a good idea for personal preference in art, especially something like this. I think that because it is my art and i wanted it to look a certain way I think that I have the final say on how it should look and how i want it to be perceived because I did this for my own pleasure (well technically a friend but he loves it). Now if I did this for the community or someone specific here or just to get the most favs possible, then yes you are 100% right, this would be changed in a heartbeat. So i hope you dont think Im not changing this because im stubborn or an idiot or something, i just simply think it looks great the way it is :) does it have flaws? hell yes, can it be improved? sure. But I like the way it looks now and im okay with that.

Actually i love the brightness of this box. It makes it stand out and feel different and not so mainstream.

I think you did a really good job on this one. Its looks so sharp and fresh with its high contrast wich i like.

Very well done + fav

The back is absolutely phenomenal and I love it. I'm not crazy about that render on the front (it's not your fault in any way, though, I just don't personally like that stance.)

But that back is HAWT, so you've got my support!

Der HellRazor 13 [ 4 years ago ]

I think you've done an awesome job.

Yes, everyone's bitching about the contrast, but I reckon it suits. This is a site when people display their ideas for boxes, and this box used high contrast to attract people.

The only critique is the Promethean on the front. The entire box apart from this is based on a UNSC blue colour scheme, but the Promethean I feel takes away from that. I would''ve had maybe Cortana, Lasky, or something more UNSC relateable.

High class box :)

IMO the contrast isnt the problem, the overall design is very safe. I love the contrast but the logo on the front looks awkward and the back could have had more. It's just a little boring and doesnt seem like much effort. Love the front, not a fan of the back.
