Star Wars: The Force Unleashed box art cover

Hello again!
I made another Star Wars box, this time for a game I haven't played yet, The Force Unleashed.

I really drew inspiration from the original Hildebrandt Brothers Star Wars poster to try and give it a cool retro sci-fi feel. Overall I'm really quite proud of this one :D

I like the overall concept of the box. Obviously, you had an idea in mind and didn't just start slapping stuff on a template, which is good.

Let me start with the basic stuff first before giving you an artistic feedback. The Teen rating is missing on the front. The presentation could be better, it really distracts from the box and makes the whole thing look a bit sludgy.

Now, the Darth Vader on the front should have a ghost-y feeling, and it would be nice to see some playing with contrast or something on the front. It isn't really spectacular, something more explosive would've been more fitting for the game.

You should look at some other boxes for inspiration on how to pull off a good back; the text is too big, and the screenshots are kinda floating around.

The thing that really doesn't look good about this is the background with those weird gray-ish green-ish spots.

Which program did you use, if I may ask?

Ah, yes. The teen logo, forgot about that.
There was an attempt at playing around with the contrast on the renders but it wasn't used to great effect. I tried to go for subtlety but I agree it is a little lacklustre on the spectacle front.
The back was definitely the most difficult part for me to pull off, but hopefully I'll improve on making those soon enough.
The background is just a generic space wallpaper I found online that I used posterise on to give it the, well, poster-y effect, but yeah, I suppose those odd spots are a little off-putting.

Oh, and I use GIMP. Thanks for the feedback :)

@danny-21_ GIMP is definitely a good program with a lot of potential. Check out boxes on this site for inspiration. Watch a few toturials online to learn how to do certain effects. Also, it really helps to draw a raw sketch of what you want to do on a paper before starting design stuff.

I just realized I completely forgot to comment your update! Saw it a few days ago. Sorry.

Looks much better now. I really like the new overall look, the big red borders around the screenshots look still a tad weird. But you'll improve if you keep it up, this is already vastly better than the first version.
