Comment on qwerty334's ICO Box Art / Cover.

My second Ico box, as well as my first essence box.

I went for a minimalistic, yet artistic approach with interesting placement and restrained brush strokes. This is definitely a departure from my usual style, as well as my first Ico box which was dramatic/epic. I feel this fits the game better, so...

Enjoy!

Just amazing work here, everything just looks flawless.

Best ICO box I have ever seen, and one of my favourite overall boxes.

I never noticed, was ICO really in 720p? Anyways, fantastic box. I'm loving this comp right now.

Thanks guys.
#3, No, but like Criterion, Essence would re-release classic games in better quality.

LOL I like the play on the Criterion template. As a purist, I should be offended and scold you, but it's just so creative I can't help but give you a thumbs up!

If only Sony would re-release Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and Okami in 16:9 and HD. I'd buy those games in a SECOND.

I think what would've sealed the deal for me was that if yorda's silhouette was behind Ico on the front cover; giving the composition the look that Ico is protecting Yorda. Both silhouettes on one side would've also conveyed the togetherness between the characters - an essential aspect of the game.

Otherwise the box is technically well made and elegant, as I'd expect from you.

Yet another essence box with nothing but silhouettes. Sorry if this offends you qwerty, but your great idea of essence kind of went... bad once people started using all these silhouettes. So no fav from me :(

Combining the Essense art direction concept with ICO, one of my favorite things is just...it's magical.

How can I NOT favorite this? It just looks wonderful.
