It's interesting how you changed your way of creating the boxes, I like how you progressed. Now you add more extras such as the manual, the disc and accessories, it shows how you put effort into making boxes and it is admirable. I honestly didn't like your previous work (Hrot) but I did like this one. The only thing about the back cover is that I don't like the way the light blue square looks since it doesn't match the color of the rest of the box. Just that to keep in mind. good job!

Thanks for the reply! Well, I'm already made discs and manuals before, like for "Entropy Zero" collection. Particular "Alyx NoVR" cover I made for the guys, who actually made this mod. So this is an order job)) That blue box wasn't in early version at all, but I decided to frame the copyright text. It was white first, but if most of the colors of the cover are blue/green - why not choose blue. Can you describe your full opinion on "Hrot" please?

@Daniil Brutskiy I understand, perhaps if I were you I would have used a color that was not so strong for the copyright, that light blue stands out a lot compared to the rest of the box but that is my opinion. The rest was good, I liked the work. Regarding my opinion on your previous box, I found it very simple, nothing remarkable, few screenshots and the source is basic, very empty, a lot of text and few images. I didn't like the CD version either, it's like copying what you made using a cd case template. Transferring the DVD case into the CD case.

But CD cases were always just a more simple version of the main box. And did you even seen the first "Quake" cover? Its basically just a dark background, the logo, a few screenshots and a lot of text)) Because at the time 3D graphics were more impessive for the players, than the actual box art. So I tried to make my cover with that style. But ok, I'm heard you, thanks for the feedback.

@Daniil Brutskiy Yes, of course I noticed what the cover of "Quake" looks like, it's just that the work seemed very copied and transferred to the CD version. In my opinion it would have been better to have made another model for the CD and for the DVD to add some more details so that the box would not be too empty. Maybe that's why I didn't like the box, but that doesn't mean I don't like your other works, there are works that I do like and others like "Hrot" that didn't surprise me as I would have liked. But you have talent and I admire that a lot. I will be aware of your next projects. :D

@Warsony I understand. Still thanks a lot for your opinions, tips and ideas. And also, this "Hrot" box - its not a DVD-Box)) Its actually a big box, like old PC games came in. So the jewel comes with that box, not separately. That's why jewel is just a small copy of the big box.

Awesome, I love that front cover and disk design, the back is a bit bland in comparison but still designed well.

Also agree with Warsony, how much you've progressed and adapted how you design has come a long way. You're much more creative and doing less and less "official designs" which is amazing.

Keep up the good work, I've been thinking about making cases again because of you.

Thank you a lot for the feedback! I don't know, I thought that "Alyx NoVR" cover would be too simple. But if you guys say it's good - that's really nice to hear))
