This is a box for God of War III obviously, I just wanted to be different to most other GOW3 boxes. :) Hope you like.

I think that the lens flares messed up the box and Kratos sword shouldn't be overlapping the spine. In the back you should add more screenshots and change the legal text of Uncharted. Oh, and remove that watermark from the bg too.

OK, fair enough, what watermark? [Edit: Ah. I see it, its in the flames layer]

And btw, sorry but The Blade of Chaos stays. The lens flares were supposed to show the light bending round Kratos. I don't know if I'm gonna add more Screenies.

OK, minor adjustments done.

The simplicity of the front works for me, but the back feels so bare. The tagline text should be larger and placed either below or above Kratos' eyes. I think it would look better above, so I would move down the eyes. If that picture is big enough originally, make it the background and place it below Kratos' eyes. Make it show some action like what you have going on the front. I actually like the blade of chaos reaching over the spine, it makes it feel like it comes right off the page. I would tone down that lens flare. Especially the part up by the enemy's arm.

That lens flare is a planet, man. Look carefully, I can show increase the planet's opacity to make it more blatant.

#5, My bad, I didn't full zoom it. I think it would work to increase the opacity a bit though, the color of it blends in with the sky a bit much.

Um, why does the front cover image carry over the spine of the case? It doesn't appear balanced with the rest of the image. And just a little note, it could be re-sized much smaller to incorporate the enemy that is trapped behind the "Only On Playstation" label. And you should definitely add that the game is "God Of War III" and not just "III" on the front. As with the back, why does is appear that there is a crease over the background image of Krato's face? And what's with the DiVX logo on the back? Anyways, from one fellow artist to another, I believe the back should be totally reworked. Perhaps a more thought-out plan on what images can be used and how they can be arranged should come about first. We're trying to AVOID placing the cart before the horse, sort of speak.

The sword carries over to give it a pop-out effect, I don't want the viewer to focus on the enemy, it's about Kratos. The game is clearly God of War III, not III, if you're too fucking idiotic to see that, then you shouldn't be looking at my box. You will notice that there is a folded piece of parchment under his eyes. Why shouldn't there be a DivX logo. The back stays, and untill you prove to be a better artist than me, I will completely disregard anything you say. Perhaps you should better "think out" some work of your own.

Yeah, you made a great box. I like mainly the back.

You should make a 3D box if you want, and make this 2D art a printable, but it's just a tip.

#12, Gorgoroth, I know that this little space is your domain for fans of your work and what not but, if you believe that you could one day be a pioneer and revolutionize the talent of boxart making then, I you have my pity and I will no longer give my honest comment about your style whatsoever because I can obviously see that you need much more time to GET IT right. And one final note, the title "God Of War III" should be CLEARLY displayed as such on the face of the box. Of course I knew what your INTENTION was but, only because the main character of the game was on the front and only so is how anyone would know that the art was affiliated with the God Of War games.

#17, Yeah he's been leaving pseudo-intellectual sounding comments on my boxes too even though his are just awful.

I love this box. The only thing that looks kinda weird is the skewed tagline on the back. But the front is very original.

Nice box and don't listen to that guy. I especially like the front, the back to me seems a bit empty but I don't know why. Anyway if you continue your great work I'll give ya an author fav. Also I really love how Kratos' sword goes into the spine.

#16, this is not a place for his fans, this is a place to comment on a particular box... and Gorgorath, i can practically hear your Scottish accent through your angry responses.
