First off, Welcome to the site!

I think the front is very captivating, but the back brings the box down. Usually when making a completely fictional box, or a box that has no official resources (art, logo, etc), it is okay to use already seen art from past games, with modifications to fit the theme of the new box. I think a little more could have been done art wise, and screenshot wise for the back.As far as screenshots, especially on a game like this, I'd have used frames or borders for them. Your choice of font for text wasn't so good either, I'd have gone with something like Times New Roman, in a staggered size, smaller on less important words, and bigger on more important words, or key words in the game's description. For help, always remember to look at official boxes, and if you need some inspiration, check our Hall of Fame for great boxes with great designs. It doesn't look like you've got a problem with image layering, the pictures fit the template quite nicely, with no jagged edges, and the spine is done exceptionally.

Overall I think it's not bad for a first, but I certainly see where you can use some improvement. I think you have some potential, feel free to ask me any questions through PM, and I'll try and reply back quickly. Ciao!

I disagree with Ray. I think it looks like you made it in MSPaint, saved it, uploaded it to AOL, downloaded it, and repeated the process numerous times.

What I'm trying to say is that you have some horrendous Jpeg artifacts floating around that text, man. I recommend using GIMP for more advanced features and higher quality products.

Hi, Just commenting on what TheSlyder said. The text on front that say Twisted Metal is meant to look slightly pixelated and that is how it was originally designed.

#4, No, it's not how it was originally. link

There's a difference between grungy style and pixelated artifacts.
