Silent Hill 2 box art cover

I decided to post this to see what people thought about it.

Before joining the site, i've been making some boxes for the span of almost one year. Of all of them, i think this is one of the better ones. Of course, you'll be the judge of that.

Constructive criticism is welcome.

I saw your work in the forums, and this is one of the better ones indeed. Most of your boxes are pretty generic, with heavy focus on images and it feels like the text is an afterthought. This one however, works together (I'd just capitalize that "i" on the back). It'll be nice if you pushed yourself a little more out of your comfort zone.

I look forward to seeing more.

I'm really glad that you liked it. The thing that you point out probably has to do with the fact that I do the front and back separately, and usually I do the front first, and then slap the back together however it works out. I don't know which approach should I take to get out of my confort zone, minimalism maybe? That "i" thing is because English is not my mother language, and I usually miss things like that when i'm writing.

Anyways, thanks for the pointers, Lucid, I'll try to work them out next time.

@FrankBedbroken Well, I mean in order for both the front and back to work together they general need to share similiar elements (color, texture, etc) in order for it to look like a whole piece. Font choices are also important, because you want to pick something legible where needed (like summary), while keeping the theme of the box in tact (like you wouldn't use Comic Sans on this horror box).

@lucidhalos Maybe i should've incorpored a bit of the brick wall texture or the Silent Hill background on the back. I know about the font thing, i always try to find the most fitting font for the thing that i'm working on, to not make it clash with the thing i'm working on.

I don't think it comes up in the "Recents" section if you comment on your own box anymore

It does not, but still, posting it in the forums was like "HEY COME LOOK HOW SHIT I WAS TWO YEARS AGO".
