Lightning Returns: FINAL FANTASY XIII box art cover

Hey
So here's my Lightning Returns box, jesus this took too long to come complete.
Considering I've never even played this game I think I did pretty well. It's been my favourite box to work on, and I'm happy with the outcome.

I wanted to go for a different take on the game. I know it's quite a dull game with a lack of colour, so I wanted to do the opposite for a unique look for the game.

I literally just realised I had been using the PS4 logo the whole time even though it's a PS3 game... So let's just say it's a HD remake :3

A massive thanks goes to Sarashi, aldimon, FrankBedbroken and super-mega-hyper-sonic for the help in the WIP forums!

Constructive criticism is welcome :)

Updated the box already, I've modified the Pegi logo based off FrankBedbroken's advice in the WIPs, hope it looks better. View in full to see the update.

Thank you Vince, it's appreciated :)
I've never played a Final Fantasy game, I just fancied doing a box for the series. The only character I'm familiar with in the series is Lightning so I figured I'd do a box for the game most revolved around her.

It might be me, but I don't see the change yet. :/

Not even when you view in full? I can see it in full view.
On the thumbnail/regular page I can't, but viewing in full should allow you to see it.

As someone who played all three games the way you used the colours has captured all three games very well. This box is absolutely gorgeous. It's beyond incredible. Great work!

Looking good. The screenshots seem odd to me without any description, but this is still very fine.

TheTombRaider 46 [ 4 years ago ]

I suppose I could have added that, but I felt like that would take the simplistic look away.

Thank you Anna! :)

Thank you all for your comments, this is (in my opinion) my best box art and it took a hell of a lot of work, so I appreciate the favourites and I thank you all for the kind words :)

That Mr Awesome 33 [ 4 years ago ]

Looks nice, but shouldn't it be IV instead of IIII on the back?

[ Reply ]

avatar
TheTombRaider 46 [ 4 years ago ]

It can be either.
On books I've seen it as IV but while searching on Google/seeing it in real life on clocks, it's sometimes written as IIII
