This is my second uploaded case design and the first I made, using GIMP 2.6. I've heard from some they don't like the filter, but its on there for two reason, I liked the effect of speed it gave, and that the original image became slightly blurry when I scaled it up, so I solved the problem by using a cartoonizer. Anyhow, constructive critisism is welcome, if you don't like the filter, please don't tell me, I already know from a few people, if you do like please do tell and please don't be jerk when you comment. Thanks.

Pretty good, but some things need some work. I don't think nintendo would make this game, so get rid of that and make the EA smaller and in the corner. Other than that, the front is awesome.
The back needs a lot of work. Make the screenshots bigger, change the font, and get rid of the background.
You have great potential to be a good artist.

Your back is a little on the bland side. You have a very small amount of text taking up a very large amount of space. Shrink your text box and font size to free up some space, and then make your screenshots bigger and maybe add a couple more. As for the front, I hate the filter (I read your first post and don't tell me what I can and cannot comment about). I don't really see the sense of speed you're talking about it capturing. To me it looks like the road is moving and the cars are staying still which doesn't really make any sense. You upscaled an image which is a big no-no. Never do that, you will always lose quality.

#4 Thanks for the tips on the back, I wasn't sure if it would be readble but it is rather large, which was a shame as I wanted to add more anyway.

#5 Thanks.

#6, You didn't take the advice, the front still has that horrible artistic thing on it.

#7 Not everyone finds it horrible, but I did say in the forum I can't change it without redoing the whole case.

#7 I also like the filter, and many others do, I wouldn't call it advice at all, you were basically telling me how you would design the case, thats not advice, thats like saying if another artist told Picasso how to paint, we wouldn't know him today if that had happened, so don't label something advice when its more opinion.
