New Super Mario Bros. 3 box art cover

New Super Mario Bros. 3 doesn't exist (not yet at least), but I had a lot of fun making this Box. I tried to change the usual "New SMB" cover a bit, with the action taking place in a different "angle". Since the game is not real, I've used characters from past games and even a few characters from New Super Mario Bros. U (Yoshi, for example, adding a smoke coming out from his nose).

I'll do the "back" today, maybe.

Added a few minor effects on every character, such as shadows and "blurry-things".
Background and clouds were made from scratch.

UPDATE
Guess who fails at making Backs?
I do!
Or, at least, that's what my Photoshop thinks, so it decided to crash.
I lost the "inspiration" halfway through my work because of that, but I tried to do something actually decent (at least for my standards). Also, please forgive the 'cheesy-ness' of the texts in the Back.

Shamelessly used screenshots from New Super Mario Bros. 2.

My first "complete" Box.

I can see a lot of detail work put into this that might be overlooked. Good job!

HOW IS THIS NOT MORE POPULAR
NO SERIOUSLY
THIS NEEDS HALL OF FAME <3

You're amazing. I love this box so much. Something as simple as putting it on a diagonal angle completely changes the feel.
Did I mention that I love this?

Thank you! Glad you liked the "diagonal front".
Thanks again!
