I still think that you need to do something to the green splatter thing on the back. Front = epic. back = almost.

I had to make almost everinthing on this box, the minis, the luigi on the back...

Ninty: template
Jevangod: DS card template
vegeta1035: logos
afifan000: tagline
this took me about a week to get the design right, and somehow, i STILL dont feel like it's at it's greatest, but i do not know how to make it better, I hope you guys like this, i poured all my boxart skills into making this picture.
#1, like...

The front is good, but the back seems so unfinished, the back is very green and the render choice is small, and a tad overused. I'd size those mini Luigis down and try and get some more DK renders in.

Also, the reflection is backwards?

Gold, simply gold. Looks great. The only thing i would suggest is to get a more defined splatter on the background, you could try a brush from brusheezy.com, but you'll need PS. But thats me being really picky.

Either way, i think this is great!

#5, Actually PS brushes and image work on GIMP (and .psd can be saved on gimp) although I'm not sure of paint.net about the box the front is great but the back needs work i can't say exactly what it is but it seems to be missing something. still fav

The front's just awesome, but the back could use some work. It seems kind of plain compared to the front.

I just thought of something. The title says "Minis Go Green". Is this game good for the environment? XD!

Your boxart abilities are getting better and better for certain. The front is great in my opinion, but something is a bit off with the back design as a few others have mentioned. How you have it set up is good, but the splatter looks a little to hard, if that makes sense.

You could easily soften up the edges with the smudge tool if you use Photoshop (there might be one in GIMP, not sure). Also, dropping a shadow behind Luigi and the mini whatevers will definitely help them pop more, and give more depth to your composition.

Great job so far though.

Backs pretty plain, other than that, not that bad.

um.. reflection is not fixed. The reflection should be evenly touching the cover.

To me i think the backs is worse i like the old screenshots. you could try to make a level on the back like the NSMB back link also for the reflection add the reflection first then add the 3D then add the Cart at it's angle as it is then reflect.

#28, no thanks, i prefer my back, but thanks for the advice! and the old screenshots were just editd MvsDK ones with a crappy frame, i think this looks better.

Very nice. However, I think that the green background on the back does not look good.

I'm still not in love with the back, but I certainly think the changes make it worth a fav.

Back looks worse... It looks really messy and rushed. There's also no design to the back, it looks like you used paint, colored it green and pasted the renders on. Come on, look at the screen shots, they are half-assed.

As for the front, it looks solid, but it doesnt appeal to me, just looks like you pasted the renders on the front multiple times. The splat behind the logo looks messy.

The reflection is really off, as Lenny said. Overall the box is very messy, and looks rushed in general. Nice try though.

Front:3/5
Back:1/5
Total:4/10

#35, lol? Learn to take criticism. The back looks like a gaint green pile of shit. I'm pretty sure I could make that BG in paint. Numerous shapes? Yeah, right. I like how you only commented on one part of my post.

And IMO, this didn't deserve hall.

#57, i can take criticism, just that when someone says my work looks like it was done in paint makes me mad because i tried real hard to make that back, also i cant make screenshots very good, and i attempted to skew the reflection to fit, it didnt work.

#58, I kinda agree, I don't see what all the hype of this box was. All together I don't think it's really hof worthy. Also you don't know how to reflect obviously :P.
