    Red face [UPDATED!][New 300dpi Version][Progress: 30%] - Pokemon Green U.S.A Box Art (1998)

    Pokemon Green Version - English
    By level42



    Original Post: (July 21st 2011)


    UPDATE: November 12th 2011

    The current status of this project. Well, it has slowed down but is not dead. I've been tied up in a few other things including my MAME Arcade machine ;) Rest assured I hope to have this 100% completed, at some point.

    Will I release the final artwork. I'm not sure yet, it depends on how I feel, on the day, and of the artwork.

    I appreciate the community support and its basically what is driving me to finish this! (Keep encouraging me and we might see the 100% final sooner then later!)

    Thanks again!!!



    [UPDATE] - March 24th 2013

    Work has begun on the new 300dpi version!
    See here:
    http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f237/%5Bupdated-%5D%5Bnew-300dpi-version%5D%5Bprogress-15%25%5D-pokemon-green-u-s-box-art-1998-a-115151/index4.html#post4675148

    All 5 items listed below have/will be addressed in the new 300dpi version, once completed.


    ToDo list:

    1. *This is a big one* Redo the all the text and low res parts with a new 300DPI version.
    - This includes the Bar-code, Characters and Logos (Amusing I can find a higher res version, help is appreciated) ALL the typed text
    2. Clean up the battle screenshot (If anyone wants to recreate the Sandshrew vs Meowth screen shot that would be AWESOM!)
    3. Re-size and realign some things, logos, text characters.
    4. Correct the game code on both the box and cartridge
    - Box: DMG P APBA Cart: DMG-APBA-USA
    5. Re-size the cartridge slot inside, original cut is way over sized.

    6. More Soon.

    Thanks!

    It's been designed to be printed in the correct size/measurements. But again, I'm limited by my printer.

    Ooooo... very nice. This is certainly a unique work.
    It would have been nice to complete the other sides as well, but that does not really detract from the sleek professionalism of the rest of it. Hilariously, due to the age of the box, the Green one actually looks a bit better.
    Hrmm... hope Nintendo doesn't sue you over the seal.... XP

    Looks pretty legit so far. If you're going for 100% accuracy, there are some inconsistencies:

    1. The ESRB logo is the modernised one. Dunno if it's worth worrying about that though.
    2. "Link to Yellow" at the bottom seems a bit silly. If I recall, Green was paired with Red in Japan, so it'd likely say "Link to Red" if it came stateside as Green.
    3. Gameboy is followed by a TM on your Green box, rather than the (R) present on Red.
    4. Obviously the bar code is fake, but I dunno what you could do with that within reasonable limits. Maybe copy Green (J)'s barcode, if possible?

    And obviously the unfinished bits/size which you're aware of. Outside of that, I'd be easily convinced it's real. You're not a professional software pirate by trade, are ya? *runs*

    Here's my first, final, draft if anyone wants to see what it looks like full size. (Or as big as your printer prints)

    Wait, doesn't the Green one use a newer, red Nintendo logo, while Red version has a white one. ;)

    I'd imagine that's because the box is red. My old Shadowgate Classic (biggest waste of money for the GBC, btw) box has a red and white logo on the back of it, much like level42's box here.

    Anyways, the changes make it look very authentic. A+

    Sorry, which Nintendo logo are you talking about? Is there another inacuracy on my box?

    Also, for those who are following along. Label is finished!



    Things to do.

    A.) Find a place that sells the same card stock that was used for Pokemon Red/Blue boxes. If anyone knows what card stock I need, let me know. Thanks.
    B.) ***This is done*** Paint ghetto old GB Cartridge green and adhere label.
    C.) Get final draft printed on proper card-stock.
    D.) Assemble everything.
