This is something I've been working on but I sort of scrapped when my computer's battery died. So I started anew, and I'm please with how it came out.

So it's different than my other stuff, but you know... change can be good.

No, i dont like this, it seems very rushed (except the screenshot bar/ursa) the back text is way too big and doesnt fit. feels rushed to me.

#8, Oh come on, two weeks?

I know the last render might have been hard to cut out, but two weeks? Anyways, the box doesn't particularly work well. The renders stick out like sore thumbs, the text looks ugly, the color schemes aren't effective, and overall it looks odd. Come on Nikki, I know you can do better. 3/5

Yeah cause that's what I did, I just slapped a bunch of renders on a template with a background. Because I don't take any time on my boxes and I don't add anything of my own to them either. That was a very rude insinuation Karma. I really thought better of you.

Anyway, yes, two weeks. I don't really have much time on my hands anymore because I work and have summer school so I can get ahead and only take four classes next year. Not to mention that speedbump I had with my computer, so I finished it up yesterday and today, with minute details you didn't take the time to notice.

BTW shady, I will take your criticism and you can expect an update with the back, because I feel yours were legit.

#11, Wasn't trying to be rude. When Shady said it was rushed and you said "two weeks," I took you literally and I thought that you worked straightforward on it for two weeks. Excuse me for the way I think. Anyways, I still think it looks rushed, and I understand that not every one of your boxes is gonna be HoF material, but I was still disappointed. I think that if you really want to make something stand out, you have to push at it, and try the best you can, because I know you didn't do it for this box.

#10- Karma, that was incredibly harsh and inconsiderant. Most of an artist's time should be spent on coming up with the design, not creating it.

As for the box, it does seem to have a few odd design choices, Nikki. The text seems oddly placed.. I'd shrink it and put it in that white space. Also, the contrast/saturation of the characters looks unatural. I wouldn't personally touch the contrast at all. Maybe you should Contrast Mask them. (link)
Overall, this has missed potential, but I know you have the ability to make it better with an update.

Oh hey thanks qwerty for the tutorial I missed that. I have the back done in an update and I will lower the contrast on the front.

Okay it's updated. I like this one better.

I realize the text is high up but I meant it to be there.

Better, but center justify? Why? And why did you add the extra text? Anyways, the front's looking much better, but the back text still needs some work. I think it's too big right now, and a header would make it look better. (Hey, that rhymes!)

The front is very nice, but the text at the back spoils it. I suggest doing something similar like your previous Final Fantasy box, with the Oriental-texted tagline.

I'm looking forward to a V4! (:

Thank you for contrast-masking, it's much better. I'm gonna go ahead and fave, but I'm still expecting a text update ;)

EDIT: Damn, you really like FFXII boxes, don't you? I believe this is your fourth :P

I took a good look at this box earlier today and I was not happy with it, so I decided to add something more to it. On the front I added a border, and on the back I changed the text, as well as added that render of Balthier, Ashe and Fran and desaturated the screens. Let me know what you think.
