Hey guys, this is my first box!!! Please give any tips, critiques, etc. I used Photoshop and would like to give credit to Titan 38, Spiderpig24, and Cerium. Enjoy! :)

Thanks! I was thinking of adding a box, but I'm still new to the whole box-making thing.

Welcome, zorfog; not bad at all for a first box! I'm a huge Halo fan, and have made way too many Halo boxes to count, so I would love to offer some tips for this box.

-Halo Reach is centered around Noble Team. The box can't really show Noble 6 since that is the customizable character in the game, so by default the front should focus on Noble 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. In this box, Jun (Noble 3) is cut off. I think that is the most important error here.
-Instead of using the Microsoft Studios logo, I think you should use the Microsoft Game Studios logo which has been on every Halo game including Reach.
-The Bungie logo is hard to see. Instead of using a black Bungie logo I think it would be better to use a white one.

That's all I could think of at the moment.
Here is a hi-res Microsoft Game Studios logo: link

Here is a good quality white Bungie logo: link

I hope all of this helps with future boxes.

I like this. It's different, in a good way, from most other Reach boxes. And although Kief has some good points, your last one is wrong as the new template doesn't have any Live-enably logo

#5, Thanks for the tips. In the picture I used, Jun and 6 were next to each other so I couldnt really include Jun without 6 showing too.

#6, the NEW template, yes. But the template they used for the official Halo Reach box specifies that it's Xbox Live Enabled. Since zorfog is going to be using this particular template I'm going to edit my comment and delete my last point about the template since it doesn't seem to apply.

#7, yeah that artwork is hard to use because of the placement of the characters. With that in mind, you did a good job.
