The front is very "by the numbers". The back reminds me of ElCrazy's God of War III box. It's cool, I'll fav.

Hey, not bad!Unfortunately, the blending's way below what I expect from you, and the box itself isn't that exciting. I assume you got inspiration from the back from Dan's GoW3 box?

No. Actually I was watching my cousin's fiance play the game and got interested. This, in my opinion, captures the feel of the game. For the tagline I did though.

And please stop saying the word "expected" because for some reason it is irritating me beyond belief. (Probably because everyone around keeps expecting stuff from me and I'm getting sick of it.)

#5, Well, we're expecting good stuff from you because we know that you can do better than this ;)

It's just an experiment though. I didn't intend for it to be in the hall.

#5, Expectations are a great limit to artistic experimentation. I hate seeing people stick to one type of box because they are too afraid of not meeting expectations to try something new. It's great to see you trying something new and stretching your box variety. The front is amazing...I love how the pillars give this great border and lead you into the image. My only suggestion would be a bit of a glow behind the logo. You also might have tried a bit of effects, like adding in wear and tear on the pillars, like chipping and scratches, but it looks fine without it. As for the back... the blending is great...incredible job of bringing all of those images together. Unfortunately, it leaves a very empty-appearing box. It all looks more thrown together than as if it really had an idea behind it. It doesn't flow together. It's obvious that the images were blended together, instead of being one amazing design. The front is colorful and stylish, but the back doesn't match it.

I agree with Koopa, trying something new is a good thing and so is this box.

#5, Well when you are the highest rank you can possibly be on the site I think we are allowed to expect a lot in your boxes...

It's not like Numero chose to be the highest rank. It's harsh to force those standards onto her when boxes are made for fun, especially if she is trying her best. It does not have to be treated like coursework. The box is great.

I think it looks relatively good, the back feels just a bit random though.

The back is a bit bland, but the front is pretty bitchin.

Sheesh people! "Constructive criticism is the rule!" If I were Numero the only "advice" I'd walk away with from this would be, "never try something different again." Way to shoot her down.

Well, I think this box is really good. I like the cover especially with the integration of the pillars. The back, IS different and possibly too stylized to be an official box, but here I think it works just fine. Great job, Numero! Keep it up!

Honestly I didn't WANT to be rank 9 because I knew a lot of people would get all pissy and act like little girls about it. Do I think I deserve it? Only with a certain style and I'll be the first person to tell you that.

Anyway, here's my update.

#18,

"I guess I'll just start expecting subpar work from you then"? What?

Karma, your talk about "subpar" work and what you "expect" from her is really starting to annoy me... You haven't had a single constructive thing to say on this box beyond blatantly stating that the box doesn't meet your expectations, and you also insinuated that she copied the design. Clearly none of us are worthy of the design god that you have apparently become, so why don't you take your Rank 5 butt and leave?
