Okay guys, you may find it odd that this one is all done by hand. You see, there's a contest going on: link

The theme for this contest is that it all has to be hand-drawn. I chose to do a fictional Sonic game, one with a very "Final Battle" feel to it, which is why I chose the subtitle.

Critiques and opinions encouraged, though it's a little late to make changes (I want opinions, anyway.)

Also, I made a MASSIVE error. Pretend points if you can spot it.

SEGA logo
Where's the text?
And the logo.

Afraid not. While the SEGA logo IS horribly done (As well as the Nintendo) seal, it's far more blatantly wrong than that. It IS in text, though.

#3, text isn't necessary, and to add it in my opinion would simply ruin it with bad handwriting.

I'm not sure, since today's the deadline, and you'd have to be paired against somebody (Though my particular match is a three-way)

You'd have to contact Yummybrains about it, ultimate it's up to him.

Is the flaw the Nintendo DS logo on the spine? It's kinda squished.

Great drawing, though.

#7, Thanks, I worked pretty hard on it, and indeed it is. It actually says "Ninendo," as I was talking to my girlfriend while inking it out and forgot to write in the "T."

eh... i appreciate all the effort, but i'm not really too keen on it. some parts, like the back template, look a bit rushed, and no offense, because i'm no better, but i think you should try and improve your drawing skills a little. But besides that, I absolutely LOVE the front template, and the screenshots. i think they look great, for how small they are. I'm not exactly sure what the "massive flaw" is, because what i thought it would be has already been said and it's not them... i don't think I can give this a rating, though.

Don't worry, Vengeance. I don't expect this to be accepted like a normal box would, I just uploaded it for the competition itself. I appreciate your critiques/opinions.

You'd be correct in assuming that I rushed the project. Once I had planned it, drawn it, and inked it, I was tired of it, so the coloring and stuff like the legal info/logos/etc. is indeed rushed.

I thought the screenshots were fairly small too, but I matched their size with the ones on the Sonic Rush box (I used it as a reference as to where logos go and other somesucheries.)

The "massive flaw" was that I forgot the "T" in "Nintendo" on the spine.

#11 I didnt even notice you messed up the logo on the spine until you mentioned it.
I think the major flaw is rushing all the legal information on the back and also putting the Sega logo in the wrong place on the front.
I love how you did the template though ^_^

Great! I'd never even TRY to hand draw a box myself.

Great Job!!

But, mine was in 3d :D

TheSlyder 41 [ 1 decade ago ]

#17, it's not worth it to me to make a 3D image, because you'd have to skew your entire cover to match the direction of the case. It'd be way too much work, and it'd be difficult to pull off properly.

Besides, the specifications for the contest said 2D.

So there. :)

My stupid effing filtering software went into effect shortly after I commented this at first, so I never got to comment the box itself.

Well... I think it's pretty awesome. You did a great job of drawing all that. I'm very impressed. :D

#22, Filtering software? Like a school website-blocker? That sucks.

Thanks for your compliment, though. Maybe in the near future I'll be drawing more of my boxes. (If I can actually get off my butt and do it.)

#26, #27. Don't triple post.

Anyways.

All I can say about this;

Finally, someone who looked like they used a ruler when drawing a box.

Man, I'm surprised that this is still garnering attention for itself. It's good to know that people still appreciate it, though.

Looking back, I'm pretty disappointed in how rushed it was. It was adequate enough, though.

Thanks, guys.

Thanks for the support, guys!
