#1, The front is amazing. I/ve never seen another Mario and Sonic At the Olympics like it. On the toher hand though the back is meh. Make it more entertaining like the front and you've got my fav

The front is simply awesome. The back has great potential but instead, there's boring text.

Have both of you guys any clue on how hard it is NOT to repeat the imagery here-- it's nearly impossible.. so i had to make it all on myself[ the back ]

You've done the front really amazing my friend =]
I like what you did with the characters around the medal! It looks magnificent overall :D

The back however does seem a little plain, I like how you put the screenshots into the Olympic Rings but the left side looks too plain. I will still fav it though because the creativity of the front just blows me away ^_^

well, to be honest, it's not good. the front is nicely designed. but the back is dissapointing beyond belief. Well, for the front:
It's way too crowded. I dislike how you have lots of images of the same character repeatedly. I've counted that Peach render THREE times on the front. It's all too unnecessarily busy. It seems as if you've re-used the background image again to fill up space. well, it doesn't look good. the logo isn't perfectly done, there should be a Nintendo logo at the bottom right, and the Sega logo needs to be in the middle. the pictures of Sonic and Mario at the corners at the top are way too dark/high contrast. seriously, turn that down. it doesn't even look stylish, let alone good. i don't know what's with everyone's obsession of doing that. It looks weird how you have the five rings around the middle but it all looks slanted and uneven. There are so many things to be fixed, I can't even begin. Make it less busy and character-filled, and just tidy it up a bit.
back: it's... crap. this back is severely dissapointing. it's just so BORING. there's nothing going for it. there's only two character renders, and they're just random Luigi and Vector. the screenshot rings are too small, make it so they fill the back up more. And I am so damn sick of you using that font. I don't care if it has a different name, but Times New Roman, Garamond, whatever, they're all the same. Use a more suitable and different font for once. it's also too small. You shouldn't have to go into full view to read text. it should be short, to the point and easy to read.
this is all so badly organised, hard to look at, and overly busy. i dislike it. come on man, this is far below your standards.

2/5

#12, Well.yeah, that's your opinion.
I dunno if you've ever tried making a box like this, that's out of the ordinary with these materials.. i can tell you, it's hard... too hard
and yeah, wow-- some renders appear twice..zomgwtfbbq?;)-- i acn't help it. i could add a vegeta render--would that help?..no.

I'll update the back now, but if this won't satisfy you-- i don't know what to say.

Vengeance 40 [ 1 decade ago ]

well, it doesn't really change anything, you've pretty much moved that image from the front onto the back. character's faces are being covered up. the text is still too hard to read. you can still see the "official video game" and "beiging 2008" logos at the top... thats pretty lame dude. you haven't really changed much.

#17, vengeance-- please... try and make a box for this game--- you'll get my point dude....geez.

Vengeance 40 [ 1 decade ago ]

i know there is little to no material. but you could at least be more creative. if the material is too limited to make anything good, you probably shouldn't have done the box at all.

#19, that was a really awful insult---wtf?

CREATIVE??? sorry to say-- but over my latest boxes, i've been more friggin creative then all of your accounts bundles...so please, don't go there.

Ayron, I think that instead of insulting Vengeance, you should take into account of some of the things he said.

The front is nice because it's not to crowded but at the same time it has the right amount of things but i would have to say that the back needs a little more attention but otherwise keep up the good work!

I appreciate the hardwork, and the front cover does have some creative design elements.

But Ayron, don't try to be MARKER. You don't have to crowd the box for the sake of filling up every nook and cranny. He has mastered the style so can seemingly pull it off, but not everyone can do it.

Also, I do suggest using a different font for the typography - something more cartoony or a sans serif font.

MARKER 49 [ 1 decade ago ]

#27, Thanks! LOL

I would sort of agree with DMS --- the box is really good if you reduced some of the images. The front for example is excellent.. but it would have been better if you move Mario/Sonic to the bottom say, totally fade the background out so that it's just about see'able, and move the logo to the top, maybe dropping the medal down a little.
Back is again mixed. Screenshots = Cool. Foreground characters = Good. Background however is too busy, so clashes, so needed to fade out more. Description text/box is too straight.. there should also be some text on the bottom ribbon to match.
As I said in the WIP for your front... only my chaotic opinion ;)

I find this to be pretty damn epic. Two things: I have that medal on the front, too. :P

And on the back, I thought it said "Beat it off" at first. xD

#20, that's a pretty immature way to respond, dude. He's right about just about everything. It's overly-crowded (In a bad way) and things are placed just to be there. They serve no purpose. Images are reused, and there's a lot of graphical errors (Such as Mario's face on the back-bottom.)

And considering two of the boxes I've created aren't even real games, you'll have to forgive me for not being more empathetic towards your complaint that a game featuring two of the biggest video game franchises in the history of the industry "doesn't have enough material." (You don't HAVE to use official renders for the game, you know. You could've snuck in some Sonic '06 or Mario Party renders in there and I'm sure nobody would've complained as long as you did it well.)

Overall, it looks really sloppy, and I think those that have expressed their love for it didn't really take the time to analyze it.

I like the back, though. Not too busy, simplistic, and I really like your method of screenshot presentation.

Ayron 47 [ 1 decade ago ]

well.. here we go--

First of all,i apologise about my responses to vengeance--- it's just that this is one of my biggest projects yet,and i was already in a bad mood.--Sorry for acting like a fotal nutjob.



DMS,you must know--im not trying to be anyone--i just wanted a unique box.--Sorry if it seemed like i'm trying to copy someone's work.

To all of you: Thanks for the criticism-- i WILL take it into account for future projects...

Congratulations mate!!! I dont care what other people have said, this looks awesome and is one of the most original, unique and creative boxes on the whole site! It totally deserves its HoF place.

And about TheSlyders comment:
"and I think those that have expressed their love for it didn't really take the time to analyze it"
I think thats talking rubbish to be honest! Its just a matter of opinion if you love this box or not. And you cant go around saying people that do love it didnt analyze the box properly!! Just because you think it looks sloppy doesn't mean everyone else does.

#34, he's right you know. basically everyone went "ZOMG FAVE" without even taking the time to properly look at everything. I'm not bashing the box or anything but you people are way too overgenerous these days. you'll put anything in the Hall if it's made by a particular artist.

The transparent characters in the background make the box seem chaotic, but it is still a 5/5.
