Here's my Sonic Colors box for the DS. However, I was thinking of making the background on the front transparent with having a space background to see through it. I wanna know what you guys think.

Enjoy!

First off, I'd like to compliment you on using custom art, it's a good change in pace after not seeing them for a while. Here comes the bad news... I want to like it but it seems that you didn't put too much effort into it. The space on the back is just a solid black and the stars are just white dots. The slices of colors on the front are also very plain. On top of everything, the whole box is blurry.:/
Take it easy and put 110% into your boxes. "Slow and steady wins the race."

#2, Thanks for your comment. So for the front, you think I should make the rainbow transparent and put a space background behind it?

#3, yes, that would be a good idea.

Thanks to twoxT's advice, I fixed the front in order to make it look less plain. The back's no longer just a black background with dots. I managed to add nebulas and the moon to make it look more like space. I also resized the full version so it won't look so blurry. I decided not to do the whole transparent background thing because that still would've looked plain.

Very nice, the box in general looks so much better with the additions you made. Also, I have to mention that you did a great job with the renders.

Wow, I'm impressed. The custom art isn't as "perfect" as anything official, but I think that's the charm in it. The main issue I'm having with this is the back. I think the front is great, but something about the back just rubs me the wrong way. You should probably look for a different font for the back description. Try Microgamma D Bold Extended, it might look better. Here's a link to a download of it.
