Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony box art cover

So...I guess this is both the first box in 2012 and the first box in the new VGBA 3.0.

This one has been in the works for quite a while and only few days ago I decided to finish it. Much experimentation went into this cover, some ideas worked better than others. In the end, this is what I came up with.

As always, I appreciate if you left a comment and/or liked the boxed. It's been quite a while since I made a cover and I would like to get enough feedback on this one so I know where I stand as a designer.

This is a must-view in full size to see all the details (especially the front).

Hope you like it. Thanks for viewing! :)

Glad you like the colors. Tried to keep close to game theme and nightlife it represents.

Looks great, better in full. How exactly did you obtain that look on the front?

It's based on a tutorial. Unfortunately, I can't find it anymore..

Thanks for the feedback. I don't see the logo as being too big though. Oh, and thanks for liking bunch of my boxes (except this one for some reason). ;)

I really like the effect you've used on the front (only around his head it doesn't work that well imo.)

The back is well organised and I love the addition of showing the main characters of the game (I haven't seen it anywhere else used) some names of the guys, to go with the mug would be a nice addition (not that I don't know who they are, but for the ones who doesn't seem to understand)

Great box, nice to see another one from you again ;)

Thanks for you comment. I thought of putting names there but it looked to cramped and busy.

@deiviuxs Yeah I see what you mean, the 'Characters' line just ruined the possibilty of adding names above each box (maybe really small in the picture?) if not, just leave it as it is, it's really not a big deal anyway.

Looks good, and I love that effect on the front. I don't have any complaints with it.

Thanks. That effect on the front took quite some time to accomplish.

You've had a habit of utilizing various unique effects and textures in your designs, and I for one really love it this time around. It's (the front) perfectly fitting of game, and goes wonderfully with the vibrant, flashy colors. I only wish the back shared this quality, because as it stands it's somewhat dull in comparison. Excellent work on the front, though.

I actually tried my hardest to duplicate the same style on the back as it is on the front but I couldn't find the tutorial. I made the front a long time ago and only finished the back a week or so ago.
