How does your mom prepare your failure in the morning, 24? Deep fried or dog shit?

Alright honestly that was uncalled for, even if their first attempt wasn't great, it's by no means acceptable to harass them for it. You should instead see to it that this new Boxartist receives some honest critiquing to help them in their next endeavor.

Onto the Box:
It looks to me that you're using MSPaint, or at least something similar, and I'd suggest that you look into using Gimp or Paint.Net. I don't have any personal experience with either, but I hear it's a better solution than using MSPaint, and has some similar features to Photoshop; Plus they're also free.

Honestly it's not a horrible first box, but there are many apparent flaws and errors. I'd suggest trying to keep all of your imagery from the same source, right now I can see sonic renders and images from at least 6 different games, and the styles really clash. Also I'd recommend trying not to over stretch or shrink images, it causes them to loose clarity and become heavily distorted, you should always try to use high resolution images for your projects.

You should also check your spelling and grammar before you place it onto your box, also placement of your text is key, as of right now it overlaps too many images and hinders legibility.

It also seems like you took a piece from an existing box and placed it underneath your "screenshots", I'm not sure if it's from a fellow VGBA members box or if it's from the official box, but it's always best to cite your sources. Also if you used one of the NGC templates from the resource section it would also be appreciated if you gave the maker credit, since they work hard to provide free use of their works.

I hope that this helps you, and also remember if you'd like help you can use the Official newcomers' WIP thread link to get some critiquing and advice before you post it here on the main site.
