Great box, horrible presentation angle. Fix that.

My latest project. Anyone who has played the original Rayman probably already gets the design, but for those of you who haven't, whenever you got a gameover in game, Rayman would walk beside a wall. Half of the wall would be full of posters such as Vote for Rayman with a cheerful and bright painting, while the other half was dark and depressing, and would have hateful grafitti and wanted posters. This box is based off of said wall.

Credit to Master General for the template.

EDIT: #1, Temporary. I plan on replacing it.

IMO, this is actually pretty bad. I've never play Rayman, but I doubt it has anything to do with brick walls, even if you were using that as a place to put the wanted posters. I have new idea why some people faved this. If it is artwork, horribly merged to a brick wall with a logo and effortless posters tacked on, I just don't like it one bit. Also, what's with the essence template? This shouldn't be essence, and the logos are on the reflection.

#8, And essence boxes suddenly have to be simple? Since when?

Essence =/= Simplicity, Get that in your thick head people.

In my book, these: link link and link (I know I used my own as an example, I am not advertising, thank you) are essence boxes in their truest form.

1. Make simple box with no substence.

3. HoF.

Honestly, boxes like this are the reason everyone hates essence.

The idea is really good. The execution is terrible. You have fallen ill with the plague known as "Over Filter Disorder", the only known cure is to remove all of your filters off of this box as soon as possible. Followed by a redo in the "3d"ing of this box it is terrible.

What are your guys' problems? Serious?

#26, "Honestly, boxes like this are the reason everyone hates essence." Uhhh, no. Boxes that are pointless silhouettes is why a lot of people hate essence. This is FAR FAR FAR more unique than lots of boxes on this site, and I guarantee you, more thought out than any of your boxes. Just shut up.

I think this is really cool idea, that's not suited for the essence template, but still a cool idea. Execution could be better, but it's still not thaat bad.

And please do tell... how are my boxes "Not thought out".

wasa-bi 7 [ 1 decade ago ]

you know... must be a real good adhesive tape. it's holding posters on a brick wall. (that's for your "standing in space is not possible")

is there any reason for the ubi-logo on this version? it got the angle of the reflection and stuff, but it's not mirrored and NOT on the actual package - just in the reflection. Kinda weird.

#4 yes, there is plastic, but I guess #3 just didn't notice that's supposed to be a cardboard sleeve

[ Reply ]


avatar
Vaderkid123 19 [ 1 decade ago ]

#49, The reflection is part of the box. It was meant to be a floor, which is why its not "on the box"

And I love how you keep bringing up perfectly good criticism on other boxes as an attack against me. If you hoenstly think that you can stand in space you're a fucking moron.
That is all.

wasa-bi 7 [ 1 decade ago ]

#50, for the record: you fail if you say you cannot stand in space, but use adhesive tape to put posters on a brick wall!!! not to mention your ryu is standing ins space on that capcom vs marvel package.

and what did you learn? right! don't drama at others images if yours got the same lack of realism!

btw: you sure can stand in space... the moon is IN SPACE for example and people did stand on it. link Oh sorry, my fault. It wasn't the moon, it was some studio in Hollywood. My bad :(

Whoomp 43 [ 1 decade ago ]

I don't even know why I am bothering to give you reasonable critique based on your recent comment-history but whatever.

The low transparency brick wall on the front is very unappealing, not only that but since the wall itself isn't cartoony it really goes against the games design. The graffiti isn't pulled of well either, it doesn't look like it is painted on the wall. What is the deal with the rounded cutoff from the brick wall to the level map? It should be a brick-by-brick cutoff or some other kind of effect. I also question your choice to overlay the logo, that if anything should stand out.

#46, I guess I was just a bit angry cause I saw so much effort and potential in this, and you just leave a "Now I see this is ugly" comment. Yeah, not saying your opinion is wrong or anything. I mean, it can't be, it's an opinion ... but phrasing it in such a bad way and then continually saying it's 'cringe worthy and ugly' and STILL going on even when he relatively nicely accepted your point just kinda pissed me off a bit. That's why I took that lil jab at you. I do still believe that this is more thought out than any of your boxes and my boxes. Just cause it doesn't look nice, doesn't mean it wasn't thought out.

And it wasn't an excuse to be lazy. He thought essence was about being unique, but he made a mistake. And you know what? He fixed the mistake too.

I feel bad for him, man. He posted an effortful box and got all insults and maybe 2 constructive comments.

I'm not out for a fight here, unless you really want one.

I honestly do not at all like this box. Regardless of whether or not I've played Rayman, which I have not, the box shouldn't include complex symbolism like some masterful piece of poetry. I do not at all think that this is a good design. When you go into a store and look at a boxart, you rarely have to think about it, I think the same principle should apply here. The symbolism should be blatantly obvious.

"Fight the virus"? There was a virus in Rayman!? As for the box, good idea, bad execution. The font for the graffiti looks cheap and I feel that the "dark" side should be, y'know, dark. And I don't know what you did to the bricks in the middle (I assume it was an attempt at 3D)

Vaderkid123 19 [ 1 decade ago ]

#72, No, there was no virus. All the graffiti is direct reference to the Rayman game over screen, where one of the messages was "Fight the virus" Personally I didn't get it, but whatev.

#71, I suppose the fact that it's a sleeve makes a little more sense but the fact of the matter is that it doesn't look like much effort went into this. Honestly, how can you tell me than one side is good and the other evil when it looks nothing like that. And the fact that it's an essence box is no excuse to make it look like no effort was put into the back. From the looks of it, this would take me 10 minutes in Photoshop and I can't see how you can say this took a lot of effort.

Holy cow, what the hell is wrong with this site? I've never seen so much personal remarks in my life on a forum...I can see that vaderkid is banned off this, but I can still offer critique nonetheless.

it's a cool box, it really is...I like the idea you have going for it, and it works quite well as an Essence box. The fact that it isn't the same as every cartoony Rayman box is a big plus, but there are a few "realism" flaws. I personally wouldn;t have a bevel on the wall drawing and I might get rid of the drop shadow of the tape, cos it looks just like its floating right now. Your drop shadows also aren't too consistent...some shadows are very heavy while others are not.

All in itself a great box, and a cool concept! Just needs some more polish.
