Hey!
Here's the next cover in my TR series, Tomb Raider III.
I've been a bit 'meh' about it the whole time, so I'm just gonna upload it as it is.

Leave any constructive criticism you have, thanks for looking.

I really like the front on this one, the subtle mix of warm and hot colors works pretty well.

The back's OK, but I'm not really keen on how the summary text looks like, or how the screenshots go beyond Lara. Don't really know how you should make it better, though.

Not bad at all, but it's not your best work either. Sorry if I seemed kinda harsh on my remarks.

Thank you both, that's mainly the reason I uploaded it as it was - I just have no idea what to do with the back.

It looks really good, except the description text. It really doesn't look good.

Thanks Sarashi, I don't like that part either, I just didn't know what to do with it.

I'm somewhat familiar with your work now and I think you can do so much better than this. For the most part this cover is visually pretty to look at and all, but what's also important is that it doesn't fully resemble what it should actually be about, Tomb Raider 3. Therefore, my main criticisms are as follows:

1. Why is the theme based on such a small section of the game? I understand this particular game has a lot of variety and it might be difficult to create a more centralized theme, but I feel like you're making it out to be something it isn't. Not to mention all screenshots are taken from just that one section (or level, actually).
2. Similarly, the outfit on the front isn't worn anywhere in TR3, seeing as it's from its predecessor.
3. The template (which I made a few years ago) is based on TR1. And the texture you mixed with it is a nice touch but not refined at all. I agree the warmness compliments the icy theme well though.
4. The synopsis on the back looks very plain and its placement doesn't blend with the rest in my opinion. The tagline style is also a bit overdone compared to your other boxes.

Sorry if I'm being harsh, I just feel your last TR covers are seriously lacking the creativity which you absolutely do have. Don't force yourself on this box set, if that's what you're doing.

Thanks for the feedback, although I do want to point out:

1. Antarctica is the final section of the game, and it has as much levels as the other sections.
2. The render on the front is taken from Planet Lara.com, and it is listed under TR3
3. I got the template of TR Forums, I didn't know you made it, I'll credit you in the description.
4. Yeah, as I've already said I just didn't know what to Do with the synopsis.

@TheTombRaider
1. I meant that it's just a small part of the game; only one section. It doesn't represent the game at all.
2. This outfit was (for some reason) included in TR3 promo imagery as well, but it still only appears in the TR2 game.
3. Yeah, I made it for a long running cover competition back then. :D
4. Moving Lara slightly to the left and/or making her a little smaller should give the text a bit more space it desperately needs. And maybe a border behind it would liven it up a bit. Not a fan of the font and colour to start with though. Just try to play around with it more I guess. I know all too well how tricky this can be.
