The Cover of issue 2.5 of Super Meat Boy.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Call me crazy, but I think this is a masterpiece.

It amazes me how the whole picture consists of shades of red, yet that's all you needed to portray exactly what Super Meat Boy is about.

The seemingly endless pile of horrified corpses partly submerged in a sea of blood is dark yet humorous, which perfectly symbolizes the laughable frustration one would recieve from failing to reach the goal. Then there's Meat Boy, right in the middle, standing above all the rest with an expression that suggest triumph, pride, and perhaps a touch of unreadiness to face the next challenge, perfectly representing how a player would feel finally completing a stage.

Honestly, I really find this to be a brilliant picture. It's not so much an advertisement as it is art, yet it makes me want the game even more than I already did. The shading, the fog effect, the reflection, the light contrast, and the overall composition of this picture really creates a beautiful effect that is just right for the game, and I don't think it could have been done better.

We all may not agree but...

I don't quite agree with the previous post I think that the physical depth is easily derived from the reflections in those meat juices. You've done well in providing enough detail so that the everyday joe should be able to tell what it is without adding way too much so that it doesn't degrade it's actual style and soul. yup yup 5/5(just for the score's sake) 9/10

To me I don't think you achieved the physical 'depth' in the scene that you seemed to be aiming for; that is instead of the ground looking like a floor full of meat juices with mounds of thousands of bodies sat in it that stretches away into the background, it looks more like one live Meat Boy stood one just one mound of central bodies, with an inexplicable parabolic heap of corpses in the foreground and nothing else definable. The raggedy piles in the background are extremely faint and it makes them look more like very throwaway non-explicit detail than something actually part of the background design, if you only take a quick glance at the image you can't see them at all. It's an unsatisfying effect from that perspective.
