Life is Strange: Before the Storm box art cover

Long time no see!

I recently purchased Before the Storm on XB1, and while it has its flaws, obvious voice-acting issues that are well known at this point, and that it was much shorter than it should have been, I still think it was a great addition to the LIS series.

For this box, I wanted to stick to some of the official themes from the actual artwork, but I wanted to put myself in Chloe's shoes and try and use a blank Photoshop canvas as a real canvas to flesh out Chloe's emotions, such as the grafitti, ravens, and anarchy symbols.

Also, it was a last minute addition, but I'm pretty happy with the paint stroke across Chloe's eyes - I think it gives a sense of mystery to her as a character, which is essentially what Before the Storm is about, so yeah.

Anyway, hope you guys are all okay!

Thanks for looking (:

Holy hell is this fantastic, amazing work man as usual. I'd maybe make "back in" larger to fill the empty white space on the back. That's just me though. Great work again!

Let me guess, it's because I didn't put a big purple gradient overlay on it to finish it off. Aw, shucks. I'm such a noob, I have lots to learn. Maybe one day I'll learn how to use low quality images and stick to one colour :(

Just a brush pack mate, though if you did want to make your own brush strokes similar to this, the best way I've found is to take some cling film and smooth it out over the top of a scanner (don't worry, even if you use water-based paint, cling film is still very waterproof haha) and simply stroke some paint over the film with a brush and scan away.

You may be left with some remnants of the cling film creasing that the scanner has picked up, but that's easily fixed by playing with the levels of the scanned image, and also the colour channels to eliminate it :D
