Oh man. My first boxart. First off, the template is by deiviuxs.

This box is my first actual boxart I posted here, and the first one I actually went all the way through with. The inspiration was NOT to invoke a flame-war amongst PS3 and 360 fanboys at all. I was just heavily inspired by the God Of War Collection and how it combined two amazing games and then I thought "Hey, how about a Gears Of War Collection?" and went through with it.

I spent a long and hard time making this box and the back gave me the most problems. The font didn't agree with the lighting on the box and it took me almost an hour to get that fixed. The font I downloaded for "Collection" was pretty iffy and noticeably different from the GEARS OF WAR logo, so I had to edit that a tiny bit. Overall, I am very happy about this box and think it looks pretty amazing.

I wrote everything for the back except the 1Up review. I've never played Gears Of War before so it took me quite a bit of time to look up everything because I had written a synopsis for the back of the box, but my font wasn't really giving me the best time so I scraped it for what is on the back now.

Also modified the template to make sure it showed that there was five-on-five multi-player(Which is why it is at 10) and the 2 for split-screen instead of just singleplayer.

Sorry for this huge wall of text, but this is my first box and I just wanted to explain myself.

I don't want to sound like a fanboy, but honestly, I don't really like the white and green. I mean I could have done it on the 360 and I don't have anything against 360 boxes(Art is art, if you can call it that), and the PS3 was just the thing that I thought to make it for.

Like I saw it in my mind before I made it. It was amazing that I came even somewhat close to making it look this good.

And thank you for the kind words, I'll try my best to keep making decent boxes. :)
