    Really not sure about the lower half of the back cover.
    Any suggestions?

    The stroked shapes behind the text on the right are a bit choppy, maybe find a way to fix that.. The description on the left is also slightly off center. Otherwise it looks pretty good but the back could have a bit more on it, and maybe some more characters on the front

    I agree on both counts. I had the stoke in a pixelated fashion because I drew inspiration from the game's start screen, but now that you've pointed it out it doesn't match the rest of the design at all so I'll change that. I will also realign the description based on your feedback.
    I will see if I can find any more decent renders for the front and am going to rethink the back to get more images etc on it.
    Do you think I should have the review quote on the back? I have made some changes to it to make it look like a part of the back cover more, but I can't help but feel it's a waste of space?
    Thank you so much for the feedback it has helped me a lot.

    Redesign of the back of the cover based on feedback from droopy.
    Still need to align and resize some logos etc.
    Thoughts?

    I think this is look pretty good. I'd consider changing the blue to purple in the back though to match the purple in the front. Maybe also consider changing the black outline to something else for things—like the red and yellow text can have that orange outline and the background outline can be blue if you change the fill to purple. I don't think you need the special text effect for 'Crash' in the synopsis. It's kind of distracting. I'd keep it plain considering everything above it is already has effects.

    I'd give it a shot and see how it looks. The changes in color may be too much, so maybe before you change the stroke colors for the text I'd like to see a version with some of the other suggestions.

    I have done some more versions for you. I have done a purple version but I don't prefer it to the blue if I'm honest. I got rid of the effect for "Crash". I also messed about with the stroke colours but it was way too much colour and was offensive to the eye. I think having a black stroke for the text and the shape really ties the writing and backing image together.
    For your opinion I also tried a purple and blue alternating version.
    What do you think?

    I actually like this. The alternating colors is nice. Ties better with the front palette. I'm still a little bugged by the summary text, just because it kind of looks pasted on but I can't think of what can be altered about it. Otherwise this has shaped up to be a nice box.

    I know exactly what you mean. It needs something to make it look like the main description. The text on the plain white background is doing nothing for it. I'll have a think about it.

    This looks nice, especially the way you used the logo on the back. I can suggest to
    - make Rorschach bigger and the comedian smaller so their size fit their place in comparison to the other characters
    - put the "zack snyder collection" in the same yellow than the watchmen logo

    I'm curious to see where this is going, keep it up!

    Put the watchmen project on hold for the moment as stuck for inspiration to finish.
    New project and back to PS2 games.

    It's ok. Are you going to centre the Spyro logo a bit? (maybe add a small drop shadow) And I think the text in the wing could be better without bold.

    Thanks for the feedback. Yer I haven't adjusted any positions yet, do need to center logo. I will try the text without bold. Not sure about the colour if I'm honest but not sure what would work.

    Yes I suppose it's a good idea with that text to go for a simpler colour without the gradient and it might look more professional. The wing/frame idea is cool.

    Some changes been made as suggested by Moebius.
    Made some progress (need to redo the info boxes etc but put them there to get a feel for it).
    Still feel like there is something missing, something I don't like about it. Not sure what though, maybe the white behind the characters?
    Feedback would be much appreciated.
    Thanks everyone.

    Yeah it's easy to find a decent background to put behind in the white. Overall it looks nice, something about the text looks off though if you ask me. Maybe it just is too close to the edge of that wing or maybe try splitting it off into bullet points to make it look like more thought went into the way the text is laid out, the font is boring as well.

    One of my favourite covers so far. Looking for any feedback, especially with the descriptions on the back because I had to make them up myself based on what I know about this upcoming game. Do the descriptions sound enticing? http://imgur.com/T9MjKPr [Ni No Kuni 2 WIP 1].
