Box cover is the first impression of the game.
I collected some images to show the possible inspiration of these excellent illustrators.
They are all terrific.

I specifically referred to this illustration by Mike Oeming when describing Ares to Fred Dee. The original illustation by Fred ended up on a game card, the box art was repainted by Ryan Slemko.
