This was a project started in November, and then lost somewhen in December, then brought back up a few days ago.
This is more or less a test to attempt to do a gritty Galaxy box which you don't see much. I saw how most Galaxy boxes had a bluish color pallete, which I shifted into Red.
I also got a render with Mario upside down, and I flipped him around, and made his jeans look more like denim jeans. I also added dust, some blood, and made him frown. So there's that. :P
The thing is, I'm totally inspired by the recent Twilight Princess Masterworks box (you know the one!) and it had a sillouhette of Wolf Link with Midna, which I tried to emulate here.
I'm fairly proud of my Peach edit, since I made it originally from this:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_do3yDZTwD6w/SoRH1IO7TLI/AAAAAAAAABA/xrxqVfqc3PQ/s1600-R/PrincessPeach.png
I realize it doesn't look "hardcore" to say the least, but I think I achieved in making it "badass".

Nice, you finally posted it. One of the best SMG boxes I have ever seen. This definetely deserves a hall of fame or masterworks. You're right, this cover looks really badass. I love it. +fav/authorfav

EDIT: Add a printable, I want to use this as my actual cover!

It's good to be unique but this doesn't match Super Mario Galaxy at all.

#2 and 3, Thanks guys! I really did work hard on this!

#4 How does it not "match" Super Mario Galaxy. I think it merely focuses on one certain aspect of Galaxy, and that aspect is the epic darkness. In every one of Mario's Bowser battles, Mario is freaking pissed. In a lot of the levels, it also has a very orangey tint to it, espescially the final battle. Also, this isn't suppose to be straight Super Mario Galaxy. It's more of a "what if" kind of a thing where "What if in some other existence, Super Mario Galaxy was darker?"

I'll be honest with you, dude. I never really liked this box. The red color scheme pretty much just ruins any resemblance to a Mario game for me. I know what you were trying to do, but it just doesn't fit the game, imo.

#8 Mariolee am cry. :(

j/k, But I get what you're saying. I realize this is an absolute love or hate box, but like my comment a few posts up, it's more of a what if box. :)

#8, I'm pretty sure he was trying to step away from the traditional Mario style, hence the "Hardcore" tag.
Anyway, I think you did a great job Mariolee.

Not bad. Nice to see a different color tone going on for the game. Glad to see I inspire some people.

I wouldn't actually mind printing this if it weren't for the upside down spine text :/

Awesome box though

#17 I am a Christian too (my avatar is actually a cross, but I left the sunglasses there from last summer, and have been too lazy to change it, especially since summer's back) but I don't see what's demonic about it!

#18 I know, it's a problem I did with my last SMG box too. I don't know why either!

It's a real shame.

3/10 unofficial box (The 3 is purely technical execution)
10/10 satirical box if it were making fun of the exact thing it is a product of: People taking lighthearted characters and making them deep, grim, dark, grimdark, or gritty.

I mean, blood? Really?

This is a horrible idea. Great execution, but just horrible concept.

#20, you would bleed to if you had to fight a fire-breathing turtle lizard dragon IN SPACE. :p

Great box! Love the red.

#20 It's not purely serious, just a random idea. I guess not all of my off the wall ideas are genius. :P

#21 Nah, it's ok. I just wanted to finally finish this box. I'm one of those people who lose sleep at night for not finishing something.

#22 Ha, you have a good point. Thank you!

#24 Haha, there was blood, but then I added an orange overlay tint so now it just looks like regular space dust. :D

I like what you did with the colors of the logo, and that little mario under it. It was cool how you made your own letter from peach at the back. I like the sun in the background, too. It made a big difference in the atmosphere. I do think it was a little bit too dark, though. All in all, It's really thrilling and epic
