I decided to finish this. Going for quite a simple, almost calming approach for this game.

The dragon text at the bottom is taken from the original Dragonborn poem. The line in English is: "DOVAHKIIN FAH HIN KOGAAN MU DRAAL" or more specifically: "Dragonborn for your blessing we pray."

Also, I think I'll be adopting this presentation for my future boxes. I like it.

I'm not really liking the serene look on the back, but the front is magnificent!

I really love the colors and the small dragon in the sky, awesome! I'll fav for that ;)
I've also noticed the logo reflection in the water, very clever ;)

#2, I'm not quite sure what you mean by "serene?" Could you elaborate please?

#4, The back It's a bit to plain for my liking, it's only a screenshot with a separator from the official website ;) a header, synopsis and tagline. I think you should add something, it feels a bit incomplete and unfinished, I'm not quite sure what you should add, though? maybe some light textures? or some small screenshots?

#2: "Serene" isn't exactly the same as "plain". Although I do agree that it leans less towards calming and simplistic, and instead just "empty". The abrupt transition between the screenshot and the white backdrop is one of the larger issues, I think.

The scenery used on the front works in favor of what you were aiming for, though. Nice touch with the logo's reflection in the water.

#6 "Serene" isn't exactly the same as "plain"

My mistake :/ it's hard to explain, though.

Ah, gotcha. I should be able to update later today. Thanks for clarifying.

And it's done. Probably not the most interesting of backs, but certainly more fitting than my last.

#10, hmmm, not sure about low res, the original picture was over twice as large as it is now, it's probably due to my playing with the levels. In any case, I think I'll just keep this as it is, it was more of a side project anyway. Thanks.

#9, Yes this is way better! it blends nicely with the front, good job ;)

The only small problem I see, is that the screen you've used on the back,
seems a little lo-res, It could be me tough? Maybe I could find a better picture for you, if you like?

I think one of these screens, really could suit your back link link or this one link
