Complete cover box artwork or Incomplete cover box artwork. Any suggestions and opinions? Please, feel free to comment this Not-So-Complete cover box artwork of mine that I've just done recently when I was in a boredom in a while ago. What say you? :)

It's interesting and a  nice collage... but the clashing art styles in some areas/characters are a bit grating.
The layout is good though.

It's interesting and gives the "if only it were true" feeling.

Aside from that, Deviant Art has really become a place where Ayami Kojima's art get's cut and pasted and modified like crazy. It holds little creative value and effort.

That being said it would be so much more refreshing had you made your own illustrations different or similar to the original. Fanart allows you that sort of vision and creativity. Cutting and pasting can look impressive at times as well as sloppy and oftenly does little justice to the original artwork. It doesn't matter if you can't draw well, most people can respect the efforts being made.

Thank you so much Jorge! I really appreciate it. And thank you for commenting about my cover artwork and tells me which of the parts that i need to actually fix up. Do you have any recomendations to actually make the pictures into a fine high-quality by using photoshop? I wonder if there's any Castlevania pictures especially for characters with high-quality from any other websites and copy and paste it on the photoshop itself though. Lol

Ahahaha Thank you so much for the compliment Green Stranger, I really do appreciate it a lots! Yes, so true. I couldn't agree with you more. But from the way I see it, I guess I should make some of the characters into a high-quality image, which looks pretty blurry as you can see especially Alucard, 40% blur image I suppose. I wonder how to make all the pictures turns out to be high-quality pictures though. Lol thank you once again guys for giving me the strength to actually pursue to start off my drawing arts about this Castlevania fan-made games of mine. Once I finish drawing some of the characters, I'll definitely gonna show you guys. Castlevania FTW! 0o0

P/S: I've already done Chapter 3. Now Chapter 4 is currently in progression! :D

If you're gonna have black in between the letters, then it clashes with the red background, so you would need a backing of some type.
Either that, or remove the black and have it transparent.

I don't use Photoshop, I use Paint Shop Pro so I'm not much help with Photoshop even though I know how to use it if I really REALLY need to.
I see you've got more similar art styles now because of the Harmony of Despair characters.  Right now the only clash I see is Olrox.  Stylized Soma looks pretty cool... but you cut out the right side of his head.

You're going to need a backing or an effect behind the character collage.  Some parts (like where Hammer is) look fine, while other parts (behind Charlotte's cape and behind Arikado's hair) there's some White.  You need consistency so you should consider either adding glowing edges to the entire collage, or a black border.  I realize Charlotte's cape has white on the edges but it doesn't look good against the background.

Just some opinion.

Hmm I see. Wait, you mean the letter words for "The Twist Of Fate"? Remove the black and have it transparent. Which means that I have to use "Overlay" as one of the blending options to make it look transparent?

Yeah I can't even find any high-quality with high-definition picture of Olrox anywhere in the internet websites but only cartoon style of Olrox they have. I wish KONAMI drew Olrox's original character picture from the first place though. Speaking about that Soma on the back cover of the box, his right side of his head isn't fully drag properly from the original picture that I took from one of my friend's original picture of this in deaviantART. Here's the original picture of it. http://quad0.deviantart.com/art/Soma-Fanart-293860350 I already used my "Magic Wand" to actually drag his full body appearance but however, as you can see from the original picture, I click on his right head which is in white color and the "Magic Wand" wasn't really useful to actually drag the original picture into my cover artwork box picture.

Alright sure no problem. I shall modify it soon and I hope this time would be more satisfying and enjoyable to see the upcoming upgrade version of cover artwork box of mine.

Ah, I see. Alright, I shall do my best to modify the whole cover artwork box. By the way, would you love to read my idea of storyline for this game that I've made recently? It's a fan-fiction storyline and surprisingly, quite a lot of Castlevania fans are actually following up my storyline and find it very interesting to them which I'm very happy about it. I've done from Chapter 1 - Chapter 3 and Chapter 4 is still in progression currently. I would be more happier if you would like to read my storyline and give your own feedback about it. Hehe *grin*

The resizing of the character artworks is inconsistent. Jonathan looks like he's squashed.

Precisely, in fact i can see that problem too. What about the rest of the layout? Is there any other part that I need to change and revamp it back again?

If there is a VITA Castlevania I seriously hope that it's not some rehashed compilation of all the DS games, or even another metroidvania.

Something actually new would be nice.

Exactly MontoyaGraphics, that is my exact whole point for actually made this cover artwork box of mine that I've made few days ago. Another reason why I made this box cover is simply because I, one of the biggest fans of Castlevania would like to keep supporting and bringing back our old beloved gameplay system of Castlevania 2D back to our Castlevania fans exclusively for PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS instead with HD graphics!. I really hope they don't remake all Castlevania DS games and remastered it and bring it over the PS VITA console. Like seriously, be caution that game industries nowadays, they are actually trying to make a collection games and I won't be surprise that if we see Onimusha: HD Collection on PS3 in a future. Just saying.

hm.. For Me this Title is not the next Castlevania : Why ?
Because , in many Castlevanias Games ( AoS , DoS , CoD etc..) , they are many allusions to the 1999 Battle ( As Nostradamus Predicted) , But your Cover is Good ! :)
Try for example to  Write the Castlevania Title in Jap , and Delete the '' Olrox '' , he's too '' cartoon'' comparated to the other vilains like death x)


 But Nice Work , I like it :)
