Spent all evening on this one. Made the custom logo from scratch--it includes images of characters in the letters of 'MARVEL' and in the number '3,' but you have to view full/printable to recognize them. Rendered/positioned the characters around the logo. The background is fitting seeing as it's a CG image of two worlds colliding. As for the back, I used an HD version of the trailer and Print Screened four times to get the 'screenshots,' which I then arranged in a similar fashion to the one seen at the end of the trailer. Text is standard text. I'm very happy with this and I think it's one of my best, especially considering the lack of resources.

Awesome, dude! The back is perfect in every way. Its great overall. If I were going to nitpick I' mention the awkwardness of having the logo reflecting on the front of the box, but it really doesn't bother me that much. It's pretty stellar.

#2, Yeah I initially didn't have the logo reflecting on the front but then I realized that because Morrigan is leaning on it, the logo is a physical object and would therefore reflect. If I had just had it floating, I would've removed its reflection.

#3, Ah, I see what you mean. What is it reflecting against, though? Isn't Morrigan herself simply floating? If she's just floating then the logo she's leaning against is floating, too, right? So there's really no reason for any of them to be reflected. See what I'm getting at? They aren't standing on or floating above anything... They're in space.

I'm not saying you should change it or anything. I'm just telling you why it looks kind of awkward to me. that's all. Its still great! :D

Oh, and the 3 in the logo is great. I love how you included the old artwork in there. Great touch.

I love the back but, I don't like the front. Logo and characters... too small :(

Not bad. But the back is basically a prt scrn shot frm the trailer. Including the screen shots. Seems like the only thing you did was add some text. But its nice overall.

#2, yeah I know it doesn't make much sense but otherwise there was dead space because Morrigan is so much lower than everyone else. I might redo it and put Morrigan leaning on the '3' as opposed to the 'Capcom'

#6, No it isn't. I did 5 printscreens--one to get the 'comic panel layout' and then 4 more to get 4 new individual screenshots. Then a new background and all the text.

The back is flawless, but I personally don't care for the front. I think the ultimate MvC3 box would be your amazing back and lightsamus's front. This deserves a fave, just for the back.

#8, I didn't much like lightsamus' front because it's just the official artwork. I really didn't want to use some placeholder art.

However, I'll post a second version with that art just so people can see the difference, although I've already decided to remake the entire front once more assets for the game are released.

I would use Marvel vs Capcom 2 artwork but the art style is extremely different and it would look weird.

#10, It's the kind of game people get excited about.

I spent all last night revamping the front and I think it's leaps and bounds better than what I had before. Considering how much work went into it, I feel that I wouldn't be in the wrong to post it anew because the whole 'reuploading vs updating' thing is kind of vague and open to interpretation. It was a ground-up reimagining where I had to completely discard my previous ideas about centering the logo and work around what limited resources I had. Gone are the strange reflections that make no sense, and I even added in two other characters to fill the space. It was hard doing color correction and finding images that (sort of) matched the style of the concept artist doing MVC3.

Back is unchanged because I received so many positive comments about it and frankly I can't think of anything that I could do to improve it until proper gameplay screenshots come out.

Please view full or printable.

I think this box looks really cool and really captures the comic book essence. I love what you did with the screens on the back and the subtle background throughout the box works quite nicely. The only thing I don't like is the pixelated background of the whole picture. However, that quite obviously has no bearing on the box. Nice work.

#13, Yeah I couldn't find any MvC images that were large enough/high enough resolution to be the background. But, as you said, it has no bearing on the box.

Nice to see you updated this case instead of having two with the same back.

Good update too, sure does look better than version 1.

#15, Totally. Although I admit it was hard to just put my original idea out of my head and re-think the whole thing.

Final update, I believe. Added Dante & Captain America to the front cover and replaced my custom logo with the official one.

Where'd you get the art for those two?
AND WHERE'S DEADPOOL! AAHHHHH!

Once I get a Deadpool image, I'll put him underneath Dante & Captain America.

#19, Seriously, though, I've been looking all over for them. Where'd you get those images?

Another update, now with all currently announced characters. I have no idea how I'm gonna fit in the rest when they're announced. I know there are gonna be at least 10 more to come and the front is crowded as it is.
