Blazblue Noel Cover Art

I was commissioned by Arc Systemworks to create the game box art for the European release of Blazblue Calamity Trigger. Most of the creative control was up to me with only some marketing direction to make it more visible as box art.

The overall effect was to create a grittier style of cover that would appeal to the European market, while still maintaining a fusion with the Japanese anime style of the game.

This cover was used for the UK, EU, AU, and GER release, as well as it being the cover for the Xbox Live digital download.

A new revised version was used for the limited edition PC version as well.

Medium: Photoshop

Approximate time: 6hrs+ (time unknown)
