I've always wanted to make a cover for this game. It is my favorite DS game, bar none.

This was my Round 2 box for TheKoopaDasher's Custom Art Competition, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

So yeah, it was another DS box, but I couldn't turn down the thought of doing this game. The only thing I didn't do, that I thought of, was to do full drawings of all the characters featured on front. Even though I didn't, it still works in my favor with the game's story, in my opinion. The idea is that Neku hasn't formed a pact yet, so the world around him is filled with noise and distortion.

On the back, you have Neku working with Shiki, so things aren't distorted.

I also tweaked the template, to give me more real estate and to make it more interesting than a stock template.

I hope you guys like it as much as I enjoyed making it.

DAMN. The design seems a bit disorganized, but that art can't be beat. Excellent work dude.

#2, I don't see the organization issue, you state, but respect your opinion.

Thank you much for your compliment on the art!

#3, It just seems that the images on the front are placed without rhyme nor reason, but maybe that was intentional. In any case, it is no small fault compared to everything else.

#4, Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

#5, I feel the layout was very intentional. I wanted them to be spread about, seemingly not connected. I can see where you're coming from, though.

#7. Thanks! I feel that I was able to be myself in this one since Nomura is one of my major inspirations, and this game in specific had amazing style.

Wow! Thank you guys so much for the great comments! Especially RoarShark, I didn't think I'd mimicked the style that well, but I did try hard to.

Again, thanks for the kind words and the favs.

Excellent artwork here - though I'm not a fan of the back tagline font.
