Comment on Sarashi's Fabula Nova Crystallis Collection. Box Art / Cover.

Dear God, this is massive.
Well, I did the XIII box, and the back of the Fabula Nova Crystallis; and SD did the Versus box, and the front of the Fabula Nova Crystallis.

And even though you might say new TALE of the crystal, my Latin knowledge says otherwise.

Sens made the plastic, SS made the template, and SD made the presentation.

I like them a lot, but the fronts seem a bit too generic.

It's a solid work though.

I enjoyed making the collab Sarashi, good job on your half. You're really improving, and congrats on your Braid HoF.

The final image size was too large to upload directly to the site so it had to be saved as a .jpeg, sacrifice image quality. Here's the image in .png format, significantly better I think. link

Why did you put a period at the end of the title?

There is alot going on, on all of these covers front and back, and yet they still don't seem crowded. Very nice job to the both of you.

I agree with Sentroavium about the front's being generic. I think the back's look better than the front, but anyways favorite.

Hmm, thanks guys but I'm a little surprised about the fronts being "generic". I guess I understand about my Versus case, what with the severe lack of resources, but I think the FNC case is one of my favorites I've done. Came out exactly how I planned it.

What I was mainly getting at was the standard hexagon overlay, starry background, moon and mountains layout.

That style doesn't apply to everything.

It looks perfect to me, just not very unique or fresh looking.

#15, I understand. Honestly I think I'm going to take a break from making designs for a while, I find myself feeling unsatisfied with the originality in them.

Thanks for the honest opinion man.

#16, I'm not gonna sit here and tell you that I've never overused this type of design before, I understand the situation with the game having no resources at all.

I try to refrain from doing it most times because I am a victim of the same thing.

I stopped making covers for games that took place in space for that reason.

#17, Thanks Thro, you're comment makes me really want to try harder to be more original with my designs. I don't know when it'll be, but I hope I can do something fresh, and not stale.

The best Final Fantasy games together. I love it.

#18, No problem, like for instance, Crisis Core, I used that certain design because I've played and beaten the game, and it matched the theme of, One Winged Angel and all, Angeal and Sephiroth.

I was planning on just making a character montage, which would have looked very similar to what you just made for the FFV13.

Or FFX, I chose pink because that was the theme I wanted to go with, I wanted it to stand out beyond what people posted before me. The cover is completely odd and original.

It seems like only recently you started kind of overusing the starry theme, your first 3 pages of artwork don't really use that, you're 4th page does.

Having worked with you before I know you can come up with more dynamic ideas.

#19, How is Versus one of the best Final Fantasy games? It hasn't been released yet, and thus it is rather hard to know if it is good or not. Also did the other game from the Fabula Nova Crystallis series get canceled? or did you just opt to leave it out.

I can't edit my comment, what the hell?

#19, Versus XIII hasn't even been released yet, I wouldn't say it's the best of the series.

#21, I'm pretty sure it's still in development, but I think there's even less material for Agito than there is for Versus.

#21, That's true, it didn't get canceled, but there is little to no artwork for it.

#22, Yeah no problem.

I'm a little disappointed with the fact that sd's and sarashi's designs seem a tad similar and incomplete. I know both can do better work so I'll give them the BOTD since they say there were limited materials.

sd1833 47 [ 1 decade ago ]

#26, Yeah it was, I apologize for derailing the comments.

#27, You're looking at pretty much all official resources for Versus XIII in that case. Limited resources were definitely a problem for me in that one, the FNC not so much.

Did you intend to have them go from light to dark from left to right? Because that is very nice.

#29, Wow, I didn't even realize I was doing that when making the presentation. Thanks for the comment.

#30 I think that is some kind of sub-conscience box artist thing, stuff like that happens to me all the time. Ill find myself laying things out in a really cool order, or all color coded when i didnt even try lol.

As for the box, they look great, but i feel like it would have been better if you posted them as a series of 3 boxes, they would get soo much more attention then because people could appreciate each box individually. Personally i love the front design of the middle, and i love the back design of the one of the right. Great job to both of you.

I love the versus one though the front seems kind of familiar. I like this collection, you've done a great job guys. I'm working on a Versus box myself, gotta be careful not to copy you now. xD

#34, Let's see.

The protagonist, standing in front of a modern type city, with mountains behind the buildings, stars, clouds, a big moon in the back, a very original idea, it doesn't look familiar to me at all.

Final Fantasy XIII's back needs a bit of improvement on the text. The clouds and bright colors clash with the white text. The rest of the boxes are fantastic however. Great effort.
