Comment on qwerty334's BioShock Box Art / Cover.

Lately I've noticed that my boxes have sorta sacrificed aesthetics for concepts/uniquity, but I realized that this doesn't have to be the case. A box can be as epic as it is artistic and unique. So I challenged myself to meet these "criteria"

Hence this box. I utilized a juxposition of styles (art deco and grunge), colors (brown and cyan), and textures (vector and raster) to create my best boxart to date IMO. I really emphasized the art deco style of Bioshock by making art deco motifs with the pen tool, which gives the box a special flavor among the sea of generic boxes. Sunbursts were also added, as they were very prominent in the art deco movement. Literally every pixel of this box was thought out, so I hope you guys enjoy the box.

I recommend viewing the printable if you like seeing the details, and thanks to Ross for the amazing template.
Happy bytD Fall Party!

LAWL I TOLD YOU IT WAS BIOSHOCK

But seriously, this is great. I love the decorations you've used. Definitely a new spin on the same, standard layout for Bioshock boxes.

Thanks guys.
#4, Yeah, it's weird since I made it in 300dpi. The printable is probably the best representation of the image quality.
#5, I know, I like it sharp. If you don't look at it in full it looks fine.

I love some parts of this design more than i've loved said design parts before, but it just doesn't feel like a '' whole '' to me. The front,that is. the back is just extremely superior to most of the works i've seen before for this title.

What is with all the avatar switching?

Anyway, this design would look a million times better without the big daddy in the kool aid pose. Good job, none the less.

I agree with others about the sharpness, but it is unique and different, especially the front.

Thanks muh friends for the kind comments. :)
#14, Yeah, I originally designed the box without Big Daddy, but it didn't feel right. It almost looked like a political poster.
