Ha, I accidentally deleted it right after I submitted, lol.

Anyway, so here's some credits:

CreativeUncut for the character renders/art

I created the custom logo from some official art.

I just googled for the elements that make up the map on the front and comped them together.

I created the template based on looking at KoopaDasher's Wii template and wanting to make something similarly artful for the DS.

Screenshots from GameSpot and IGN

I'm very happy with how this turned out. Even if you aren't into my custom temp, let me know what you think of the design of the box itself, please.

Whoa, I really like it! Just a few things!

Front Cover :
- The darkish background and bright colorful renders really contrast, and I think the map background would look better a lighter color. Something like this maybe? (link)
- Square Enix logo looks a little scrunched up in the corner. Maybe BARELY move it a bit up and to the left?

Back Cover :
- Everything's perfect!! I love this back so much. Great choice of font, beautiful colors, and good placement of screenshots and renders. I noticed you used one of photoshop's default patterns for that fancy looking strip on top of the screenshots, haha. Not a complaint, just noticed it.

Template:
- Really cool looking. It looks all mechanical and digital and stuff, haha. I wish the jutting out parts on the top and bottom of the DS 'strip' had a more prominent or larger shadow, though.
- Its looking really good on the back!!

Yeah, I wrote a lot! But that in no way means that I didn't like it. I tried my hardest to think of as much as I could say for feedback. The things I mentioned are all little things that don't really matter. Its such a great box, its hard to think of what you can improve in it.

Fav'd!!

#3, Wow, thanks a lot for your input! I'll give the front a try with a lighter color (I like what you did with your example) and I'll move the Square-Enix logo in. On the back "strip" as you called it, I don't usually use default patterns when I can use something else, but I liked how it looked there, lol. I'll also try making the shadow on the template heavier and see how that looks.

Thanks again!

#5, I definitely noticed it. It looked really good how you used it.

Cool! Yeah, the pattern does look good there, haha. I used one of photoshop's default checkered patterns on my Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time back for all the hills and stuff. You can probably recognize it, lol.

I love the design, especially the front, and the layout is great. the template looks a little weird, but i think it's something that may grow on me. Great job!

That's quite amazing, but I somehow think the traditional DS template would have sufficed. At least for the front, because I kinda like the back template design.

#11, I'm sure it could have, but my version of the back allows for a little more space to work with, plus I think my back has better visual impact. I might change the front of my template to match it better.

For the rest, thanks so much for the comments and favs!

Sorry for the double post, but nobody else has commented since the HoF really. I just wanted to mention I fixed the things that YoshiStar asked me to and updated the front of my template to match it's current state.
