Dead Space 2 box art cover

When I started this I was going to do a clean look that slowly degraded to the back. Last night, I ended up working on it for nearly 7 hours and it went in a different direction. Let me know what you think.

Pretty neat but this looks more like a slip cover to me then a full box.

Looks really cool but I don't think the gradient fits ~ I know you put the symbols haphazardly on purpose but still doesn't look very nice, unless you filled up more space.

Do you mean the gradients that makes the symbols transparent near the spine?

@slimd1995 Yup; also, do you know if there is different font available for the symbols? I think a more "scratch" look akin to what you have on the actual artwork would look pretty sweet. Some textures might not go amiss either but I guess that is your preference :p

@Patches I could only find one Unitology font. link

I was going to make the text a little rough looking, but after messing with some effects I was happy with how it turned out.

With the scribbles on the marker, the ring, and Isaac, texturizing the background made everything look too busy, so I left it black.

@slimd1995 I found a more organic-looking font if you're interested in using it: link

I would love at the very least to see how it looks up, even if you don't use it.

Some texture as well (again, if you even wanted to use them ~ could look like about 35% opacity and desaturated overlay): link

@Patches I love the font. I'll definitely try it out. If I like it I'll update the box tomorrow, if not I'll take a screenshot and PM it to you. Thanks for the help.

Nice! but like deiviuxs said, it does more like a slipcover than an actual box. if you'll make a new box and use this as slipcover, it would be even better imo. anyway, great work! very inspiring.

It definitely looks like something that would be made for a slip cover. I didn't want it to look like a traditional box art, which is why I left on dev logos, legal text, screenshots, etc. I considered getting rid of the Xbox 360 logos and using black plastic, but ultimately decided against it.

I think I like it? lol I don't know deadspace that well so I don't exactly know what's going on here.

Small update. Deleted the Xbox 360 logos and the green template. I felt that the green looked weird with all the red and block. I also added a subtle texture to the background and deleted the reflection for the marker.
