I made this right after my 3rd Birthday box because I had a lot of fun with both. I was going to post it yesterday, but my other box was still on the page... still is in fact. Anyway, comments would be appreciated, also if you can figure out what my inspiration for the front was awesome.

Please go check out my 3rd Birthday box as well if you haven't.

I think it looks really cool, but the front is a bit... muddled and all over the place; with AC and CC artwork used. However, but this is rather nice in itself. The back is fine, apart from the font being a bit bland. Composition is nice though.

#2, I didn't realize I used Advent Children artwork, I'm guessing Zack and Aeris? I saw the Zack artwork used on half the Crisis Core boxes here so I thought it was from Crisis Core.

#3, Yeah, it's a real mistake to make, but you can see how grainy the AC art is, and miles more detailled than the other renders.

I don't really mind the difference in source materials, as it's not that obvious in greyscale anyway. Only thing that really bothers me on the front is the black gradient on the logo. Adding color on the back kind of throws off the balance of the case, and as a whole is kind of bland.

In the end, I really like the front, but feel the back could use improvement.

#5, It is from different sources, that was a mistake, but being more detailed shouldn't be a problem since I wanted them to be in the back, but still focused on. Also I added grain filters/textures to the layers.

#6, The official logo had an inverted gradient, I couldn't get it to look right so I used the invert because it looked nicer. Also you say the back having color throws off the balance and I disagree, I think it actually adds balance to the box because if it was all gray scale it would look very boring. I wanted to have a real simple look to this box, and I personally like the simpleness to the back in contrast to the front. Also it may be hard to notice, but the front is not entirely gray scale, I added a blue tint to it.

All your comments are appreciated, but I can't agree with what's been said honestly. I'd like to hear some more opinions as well.
