Crash Nitro Kart (PS2) - my current WIP.
Here is draft 1, feedback welcomed.
Really not sure about the lower half of the back cover.
[Crash Nitro Kart PS2 WIP update 2]
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.

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.
[Crash Nitro Kart PS2 WIP update 3]
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.

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.

All feedback welcome.
Latest project - Watchmen [draft 1]
Feedback is much appreciated
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!
