Comment on deiviuxs's Killzone 3 Box Art / Cover.

deiviuxs 46 [ 8 years ago ]

Believe it or not, but this is my first cover this year. ItÂ’s been more than 4 months since my last cover which was uploaded back in 2010.

So, I picked KILLZONE 3 for no particular reason really. I have not played this game, heck I don't even have a PS3 but I guess I liked the artwork of the game.

I wanted to go with a different approach than most other Killzone 3 boxes are on the site. I wanted the cover to have a really gritty and rough look to it.

I spent a lot of time making this and I am really happy with the end result. This would not have been possible without certain people that helped me and gave feedback to me in the WIP thread on the forums. So, big thanks to those who gave me feedback!

View in full size is a must, however, due to 3D-ing the image lost some of its quality. I will be uploading a printable later today, so you can see this cover in full size and quality.

Comments and favorites are as always very much appreciated.

Thanks for viewing!

I love the layout of the back but I don't like grunder textures and metal text, one image on both back and front too.

It's not bad! I'm not a huge fan of the overwhelming grunge on this though. And even if the front and back image aren't the same, they look similar and it detracts from the box to me.

There's more grunge on this cover than there is on all of Slipknot's songs combined. Which, is too much.

Well, as I said in the first post, I wanted this cover to have a very gritty and rough look. I never had anyone in the wip thread mention that this box has too much grunge so I figured it's not a problem.
As far as renders goes, I know they similar but they just fit the cover very well and the game does not have many renders to chose from.
I appreciate your feedback though but as I said, I am really happy with the final product and that's how I envisioned this cover right from the start.

I think it's way too grungy, and I'm not really a fan of the color scheme. Also, the image you used on the front is pretty overused.

The back is also way too grungy, and the Helghast image is very similar to the one on the front. The way you did the screenshots is pretty cool, and the overall layout is solid, but I don't like the font choice or the over-sized text.

This is brilliant. I do agree with Box, theres a bit too much grunge on there.

Sorry for never commenting on this. The grunge is very heavy, but I'm not entirely convinced it's a bad thing. In fact, I like it.

The "blood" splatters on the logo and tagline doesn't look right at all though. It's too pale and bright.

#16, You just commented, no need to be sorry. I'm guessing the "blood" splatters you are talking about is the orange "stuff" on the logo. Well, I actually added it to give the cover more colors and make the logo more interesting and diverse instead of it being simply white. No one in the WIP thread seem to have a problem with the "splatters" so I left it as it is.

As I said in the WiP, the renders look too similar for my tastes, but the sheer layout of the box makes it HoF worthy IMO.

I don't exactly like the overly grunged feel of this, but the layout makes it work. I would update it with less grunge, but that's just me.

I really like it, the layout is fantastic. The only problem is that the grudge is really overused in this. Still, great job!

I agree with #21, it's a fantastic job although for a game cover the grunge style is very overwhelming.

The box is fantastic, but I feel you should tone some grunge down on the back.

This is really good. The back is layed-out.
The only only thing that bothers me, is the look of the KILLZONE 3 Logo, and the SURRENDER text. Other than that Fantastic Job. +Fav.

Due to popular demand, I updated the cover and reduced the grunge both on the front and on the back. Also, added some more color to the cover as a whole.

P.S. I will not be remove more grunge, so either deal with it or go eat a pickle.. =)

Wow, I think the problem of the first version is the color palette. Now, it looks much better!

Nice update. You know, secretly I wanted to FAV this but originally V1 had too much grunge, now the scales have been balanced and now a FAV is coming your way, good sir.

The reduced grunge and extra shot of color is just what this cover needed. This is much better.

I still think it's really grungy. The new colors are better, though.

I guess you can't please everyone which is fine. The current grunge level is perfect for me and I think fits the box well.
No more grunge will be removed, so I guess you'll have to dealt with it. :)

I think it's maybe a bit too grungy, but the layout it actually really nice. The biggest problem in my opinion is that Killzone 3 is more snowy/modern/clean, so grunge doesn't really remind me of Killzone. But if you like it, keep it. I'll fave anyway.
Oh, and BTW, make more boxes. I really wanna see more from you. :P

#40, Thanks. I have few boxes saved up on my hard drive but I'm not sure if I should upload them. They probably will get ignored and didn't get as much exposure as I think they deserve.
Also, members that remove favs also make me mad. Why would you fav a cover and then remove your fav?..
Oh, and you forgot to fav Raiden.

#41, Wow, I pressed the fav button thinking that I didn't fav it, when I actually just un-faved it, outstanding.

It looks a lot better after your latest update, I'm still not sure if I could see it professionally used as the grunge effect is still over-powering.

This is actually a pretty good box. i like how it explodes at you in a clean fashion. Good Job.

Bastart 48 [ 8 years ago ]

#40, I agree.

I think it's more of an art choice, to not to go with the snow theme?

The grunge makes it really stand out from the rest, and that's mostly the thing you want, attention. The KZ3 Logo and The Headline on the back, could be less blending with the background. Make it a little brighter or give it an outline. The layout is very nice, though, maybe use another image of Helghast on the back? so it doesn't come up twice.

Fav.

#47, You got it. I went with grunge so that it is not a typical blue-ish Killzone 3 box art.

Oh, and I just updated the printable. Please view that for the highest resolution.

Forget pretty good. It's amazing. I especially like the text and the grungy background. Did the font come in a special package or something for killzone or did you customize an existing font?
