Tales of Phantasia box art cover
By avatar D_Nikolaos 27 on May 10th, 2012

Ok! So, I was just recently able to get my hands on a copy of Tales of Phantasia for GBA, but unfortunately I have no where to put it, but as luck would have it I found an empty DS case the other day and totally forgot about it! XD

I decided to make my own variation on a DS template, but I later found out someone already beat me to the punch. Sd1833 (VGBoxart.com) had made an awesome DS styled GBA template, which honestly fit the bill WAY better than my last attempt.

I tinkered around with this temp too bth, I rounded off the corner near the spines NGBA logo, and edited the legal info and barcode to have the ones from my last version. (I really didn't want to have to re make those from scratch again lol)

This time I opted to use a different picture on the back, I loved the Tales of VS render I made, but as Pleiades pointed out; "This came out nice. Clean and well presented. Back's a little barren." (- exert from my WIP thread) So, I got to work on rendering out this Ad for Tales of Phantasia: The Animation link . It took me a while to get rid of all of the stray white pixels, but in the end it was all worth it, and since using the new template everything came into place flawlessly.


+This was heavily inspired by the official US GBA cover to Tales of Phantasia.

(It's been formatted for use with a DS box, like mine, but it's still an exact duplicate of the Original GBA box.)

I just uploaded a printable version of this.

Though I need to tell you that there is a Grey border around the box; since there was so much white on the template, I figured if that a possible error could occur when cutting this out.

So, to aid in keeping that from happening, I placed the border around it.

This deserves more recognition. It came out really nice.

Thanks I'm glad you think so, it would be cool, maybe it's because I used the modified DS template instead of an official GBA template. (idk?)

Btw thanks again for your critiquing/comments in the WIP thread. It's always nice to get feedback, whether it's positive or negative, while working on something. ^^
