Who can it be now? by longestdistance Who can it be now? by longestdistance
Title comes from this Silent Hill 4 fan video: youtu.be/o1W49Zk1hUU
Silent Hill 4
is one of my all time favorite PS2 games. I don't have the original case, so I decided to make my own box art. The idea for the artwork itself came from my bestie, who suggested having Henry and Eileen encountering Walter on a staircase. This was a fun little project and a good exercise in graphic design as well!

I love the concept of SH4 too. The execution could've been better (I tried playing it and found the controls too wonky), but I still like the concept of a (not) safe haven. Your artwork is marvelous and I love the colours. Walter, the blood splatters, and the hole in particular looks so good.

Thank you so much! And yeah, I agree. There were some gameplay issues (my biggest annoyance was the inventory system) but still a great concept overall. I still have creepy dreams about SH4, none of the other games get to me the way this one did.

Yeah. Nothing terribly specific, but they usually revolve around being trapped in the apartment, encountering Walter, etc. The whole concept of claustrophobia and being watched really hits home for me, which is probably why it creeps me out more than the other SH games. My desktop wallpaper is also a screenshot from the game, so I suppose it's always in my mind to some extent. Wink/Razz

Encountering Walter has to be the scariest thing.
For me, though, the scariest thing has got to be the apartment you're supposed to be safe in being a haunted hell.

Did you encounter the rare Victim Henry haunting? What's the ending you got on your first playthrough?

Haha I know right, I remember I screamed after Walter caught me off guard once. Always an 'oh crap' moment when he appears... And I totally agree. It's that sense of dread you get from having to return to your "safe" haven, knowing something horrible is probably waiting for you there. It really takes away your sense of security and always leaves you feeling on edge.

I did get the Henry haunting at a few points and I thought it was pretty awesome, though the tv and Walter portrait hauntings spook me the most. I got the 21 sacraments ending on my first playthrough, but I've gotten all the endings since then. I've played the game so many times through the years I've lost count.

how exactly did he "catch you off-guard?"
Were you ever someone else in the dream? Like, for example, you were Henry?

I know, right? I've been there, so I'm like "oh My LORD. ugh."

You HAVE? oh my lord that's just awesome. Remind me about the TV one please? I kind of know about one portrait turning into Walter's face...
How did you feel when you got what's basically the worst ending? What was the hardest part of getting the best ending? Was it Eileen, or the hauntings in the apartment, or?
Do you still play it now?

I was in the apt. world 2nd time and I forgot that Walter was in one of the rooms. Totally freaked me out. Doesn't help that he's invincible. And when I have SH4 dreams it's usually a mix of my own POV as well as Henry's. Like I'm playing the game but it's actually happening to me.

Also, the tv haunting is where it displays static and occasionally a face flashes on the screen. When I was a kid I hung a shirt over my tv bc I was paranoid I'd see a ghostly face in it. So when I got that tv haunting for the first time I turned off the PS2 like nope that's enough for today. Had the same reaction to the Walter portrait haunting, freaked me out too much.

I pretty much just accepted the bad ending since it was my first ever PS2 game that I actually beat, and I was happy to finish a game for once. But I followed a walk through and wanted to get the other endings. The Escape ending wasn't too difficult to get, although it makes the final boss super intense because of the time limit with Eileen. It is pretty annoying keeping her safe throughout the game, her AI sucks.  And yep I usually play the game almost every Halloween just to get into the spirit. My sister makes fun of me because of it haha

Henry and Eileen look a little younger than they are in the game, but this is still very good. While there was some miss opportunities in SH4, but I've never found it to be as bad as some people try to make it out to be.

Thank you very much! I agree, there were some issues, but the game gets a lot of undeserved hate. It's the only game in the series that legitimately creeped me out.

I love the diversity of concepts you can draw-- the dark and scary theme is looking amazing here! <33
I also love the diversity of the characters as well, you can make them look the cutest or the creepiest depending on the atmosphere,
you did a perfect job as always my dear ♥ #FOREVERSENPAI AYE ^0^/

This looks great! I love the coloring on this, the dark tones and oppressive shading give a good sense of the game's tone. I also like how vague this is, it gives you some main characters and intrigues you, but doesn't give away too much. This really looks great, and could easily be official box art as far as I'm concerned. Keep up the good work, friend! :D
