Well its been a while. I got banned as you all know, and this is my "comeback" box. I decided to do a completely custom Zelda game. By that I mean, new logo, new characters, new story, and an entirely new look on the Zelda series. Everything you see (besides the information of course) is completely drawn from scratch, either in Photoshop, or a combination of hand sketches and Photoshop.

As you can see, this is the first of 3 boxes in my Custom Art Series, so expect 2 more boxes, bigger and better than this one ;)

I want to sincerely thank all those who helped in the WiP thread. This box would be nowhere near as good without all your help, so thanks :) Also a special thanks goes to KoopaDasher, your advice was amazing, and just what I needed at the time. Thanks a lot man.

Enjoy!

This is amazing, dude. I love the overall look and design here. The green scroll borders is a really nice touch. There's just too much epic here for words....

#21, Well you did a fantastic job. This is truly striking. Everything about the box is great. I love your custom work, and I can't wait to see your next box. My only complaint would be the lines are as smooth as the professional art, but this is fantastic none the less.

This is really cool, except why is it a DVD ROM (and why is the main character named Tot, of all things?)

#29, Just the box looks similar to I think it was Yoshistar's mario thing. The wii logo is too far up in the corner. Plus whats up with everyone doing that with the temp all of a sudden?

#33, I did tell him he should put it on a normal Wii template, and he refused... he wanted a box. Ah well, there are no new ideas regardless of what we think.

Hmm. I don't want to sound too offensive with this...I see the value in the work you put into this, but I really think it looks bad. I think the box overall is overly simple and plain, not in a good way, and your drawings are pretty unappealing. It also hurts that half the images on there are just traced. I respect that you wanted to draw the cover to your own unique game idea, but 1) it doesn't look that great, and 2) if you're going to do something "original," then do something original. You could easily replace the title to this with "Wind Waker" or "Spirit Tracks" and it would be just as fitting. This just sounds like a bad fan fiction. "Tot, Link's great grandson?" are you kidding me?

#44 Well I knew someone would have the same view that you've just shown. Half of the images traced? Ha, you are mistaken my friend. The only things traced are the two Tot's and pieces of the castle. Where you come off with half of the images being traced, I really don't know. Also, I personally hate that in Zelda games, no matter how many years have passed, the main character is always named Link. That is why I tried to start something different by changing the name of the main character. Also, for a Zelda game, my idea is original. Instead of having one item the game is named after, that helps you "save the princess", I decided to have this game be more of a treasure hunt. Instead of the whole plot being "Save Zelda" it would be more of a puzzle, piecing together clues to ultimately find the treasure. Your comment isn't offensive, its just your opinion, and I thank you for sharing it with me.

#45, Why're you so offended? You don't have to get so riled up. "Oh man, I'm not going to say anything because I'll get banned, that's how angry I am!!"

Are my points not valid? Just because you did something DIFFERENT doesn't mean it's GOOD. You could make a new Pokemon game, except this time there's no gym leaders or elite four, it would be a crappy pokemon game, though, because those are defining traits of a pokemon game. You made a Zelda game and threw out some of the important traits that all Zelda games share.

Anyway, I didn't mean literally five out of ten of your drawings are traced, it was just a general way of saying "A portion of your images are traced," which begs the question, if you're just going to badly trace over a screenshot to use for a screenshot of your game, why wouldn't you just use the screenshot?

Anyway, it doesn't matter if your entire product is traced, or one image. There's no difference in my eyes.

I commend you for trying to do something different, but I think you did a pretty bad job. I'm not attacking you, I'm just giving you my view in hopes that you use it to improve.

#51 Offended? I'm nowhere near offended, after all I did thank you for expressing your opinion. I never said your points were not valid, because they are, even if just opinions. Also, I never said this box was GOOD, but it obviously is my best so far. Does the fact that is got into Hall mean anything toward your argument?

Why not just use the screenshot? Well if you knew what screenshot I edited and traced, then you would know that the art style of the screenshot looked nothing like that style I was doing for the rest of the box. Also, my plan was to make this box completely custom drawn, and using a screenshot from an old game is not "custom drawn".

Thank you for your views, and I will use them as best I can to improve.

Trying to change the tried and tested formula of Zelda games makes it neither good nor original. The box as a whole looks rather amateur to be frank and lots of the characters look awkward.

I commend you for the obvious effort, and I can see genuine effort, it's just not too my taste. The template is nice though.

#53 I see, and i thank you for sharing your opinion. Yes a lot of effort was put into the project, but obviously i didn't think it through well enough. My next custom box, well have a lot more time and thought put into it.

~Updated~

Did some major shading to add more depth, and a general clean-up. Also re-did the presentation and added an updated printable
