Happy It's... Guess The Hand Drawn Box Front Cover (Aug. 2012 - Apr. 2013)

A small variant of It's... Guess The Hand Drawn Screenshot that a recent thread made me think about.

Same principle, except that this time the aim is to draw box fronts (or backs if there are really easily identifiable).

Strangely, I have the feeling that people don't know box art as much as in-game graphics. Whereas we always got our games inside a box, didn't we?

Anyway, box art usually has strongly identifiable elements... or sometimes go completely crazy without almost no relationship to the game.
Therefore I thought it would make a good game subject.


Ofc, since most of us are not graphical experts, simplifications and changes of perspectives should be allowed, as long as things remain identifiable enough.
For instance, a part of the following picture is from a slightly different perspective because otherwise it would have taken a lot of time to draw and probably would have been less recognizable.




I don't doubt this one will get guessed quickly. If the person to answer does not want to draw a new one and nobody else gives it a try, I have a few other ideas that I can draw and post tomorrow. But ofc, I'd prefer that we have a lot of players .


And finally, feel free to comment the drawings, it is part of the fun (at least for me ).

I know people are just too shy to guess this brilliant masterpiece which has no relation at all to a recent thread you posted in

Anyway, it's Star Trek 25th Anniversary and I'd love to see another MS Paint art from you (which just means that I'm too lazy to make one myself)

Correct. Did you guess because of the fantastic artwork or because I mentionned your obsession with dead dinosaurs?

Your turn.

2001 : a space disc jockey?
I recognized the 2001 monolith on the right and I am pretty sure that the bottom is a DJ with all his equipment.

I'll keep an eye open for a box cover that matches my 'amazing artistic skills' [tm], but if people feel like I'm too slow, please feel free to post a new one

Even tougher than I thought. It's a nice cover - honest.

It's an isometric game.

Hehe. It's a very early 90s style bit of artwork. Nice blobs.

Well done s2325.
