*flips you the bird*

I swear to god, I had this exact same idea. Anyways, mine would've been crap compared to yours. I think I'm gonna just go with the whole Orange Box. Great job, anyways. I don't like those splatters on the "Orange Box" subtitle, but fav from me.

I can't decide whether I like it or not, but I cannot deny the sleekness and the style that shows in the back cover.

Agree with #3
The back does seem very stylish but the front just isn't interesting enough for my likeness =P

I like it but I'd prefer it if you disposed of the Orange box banner so it goes with the minimalist theme going on.

#7, Hmm...yeah I think it'd be better off without it.

I'll fix it after school, thanks (:

I can't decide whether I want it tattooed on me or thrown in the garbage.

well i kinda agree with E_G but not realy, i think the orange box looks werid there but i still like it. if i were u i would make the front all orange stripes like obove with white paint sprayes everywhere, then it will be awsome (not everyones gonna agree with me)

I like the back, but what up with the blood effect on the Orange box part? it just doesnt fit. And you should also make the Orange Box part blend into the Portal BG.

:O This is so amazing.
It's so detailed, yet clean. Everything (minus the Orange box thing) is flawless. Just make some text on the top left-hand corner of the front that say's "Part of The Orange Box Collection" and make "The Orange Box" bold and orange. That way it'll fit in with the rest of the box. Or you could keep it the same, take the splatters off, and make it blend into blue. Either way, it'll make it better. (And it's already fantasmical)

Great job.

I mean no offense to ELCrazy when I say this, but I can't help but feel that this is a perfect example of the fact that it's not what you make, but who you are that is directly proportionate to how successful your projects are.

That said, I think the cover is pretty unattractive. The colors don't blend well at all (The background and the logo, I mean.) and while I'm normally a sucker for minimalistic covers, this one just doesn't have that certain appeal. The back is much better, though. Well designed, and it has some new and exciting ideas thrown in there, such as the text OS theme.

#19, So, what you're trying to say is that my boxes are successful because of who I am, rather than how the box looks?

#20, I was thinking of that, but it just didn't fit.

#21, Not exactly, but to a small extent. Let's say that you, a very popular member of the community, make a box. Everyone likes it, it gets lots of favorites, it might get into the HoF. Now, let's say that another user who isn't popular and well liked makes the exact same box instead of you. Do you think it would get the same reaction? Of course not. His might struggle just to get noticed, and when it is noticed, people aren't going to appreciate it because they have preconceived notions.

#22, Or maybe his is better than yours?

Just a thought.

Also, Dan, the update looks loads better.

#22, That makes sense, I used to get that same idea when I was here for like 3 months, but I realized that in order to make a successful box here, your box needs to have that appeal that would make people come and comment and fave it. There are some boxes which I don't really like but are successful and vice versa btw.

#23-24, thanks (:

#23, Maybe it is. I never accused him of having a lesser box than I. I didn't want anyone to have that misconception, which is why I never mentioned the fact that I have a Portal box. I think our boxes were made with two very different goals in mind. It'd be absurd to directly compare them.

I like it alot but I would make the big portal symbol on the front a different color, maybe white, because it blends in with the smaller circle in the word Portal.
