A Blast From the Past

In my Concept Art and Illustration class, we were tasked with creating a branded advertisement for a made up or completely original product such as a movie or a TV show. I started drawing some ideas for album covers and movie posters. I was stuck in a bit of a dead end with no great ideas (a band called The Jellyfish, anyone?). Then, while at work, I saw a man wearing a shirt done in the style of an old NES cartridge. I suddenly knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to design the packaging for an old video game.
I did my research and I think I am pretty happy with the results. What do you think? This is the first pass, and I will definitely be plussing this bad boy for final submission.
