The printable version is better. Check it out.
EDIT: unfortunately the printable PNG is too big. Had to settle for JPG quality :\

Credit for the template goes to Scorpion Soldier.

Not bad. But I liked the original color tone on the front. With the slightly hint of bluish green above him. The back seems alright but I dont like how the text is going over the pictures.

Me like it. Think you should take the logo off the spine, though, and just write it out with a similar font or something. It just looks crowded one way and empty the other.

Looks very official. Extremely high quality makes it look even better. Everything is so crisp and the colors are also very nice but I would've liked some more vibrant tones in the fire. Very good.

UPDATE Version 2:
Major presentation overhaul. I hated the blurry text. Now it's bigger and the text is readable, although somewhat still small. The printable version is still the way to view it.

I took some suggestions that concerned me as well.
1. I updated the screen borders so it doesn't look so plain.
2. I also moved the "Groundbreaking Scale" text lower as to not cover up the top image as much.
3. I didn't write out God of War on the spine, but I did agree that it was too cramped. So I made it a bit smaller.

#3, I appreciate your comments. The original colors on the front image were nice, but they were changed to match the colors of the back. Without doing this, the front and back would seem like two different entities. I wanted the front and back to tie together so that is the reason I changed it.

Quite an epic box, my favorite GoW3 design yet. I especially like the back artwork, and how you laid out the text.

Wow. When I checked this box yesterday afternoon it had close to 600 views. What happened?

#17, Obviously it was linked to by an outside source. Some of my boxes have over 5,000 views because of that.

This box looks nice, and the back is great. It's well composed. +fav.

However, I'm surprised how it attained a HoF so easily? No offence, but as nice as it looks, it only features a piece of slightly edited artwork for the front. I'd expect this kind of thing to happen for a boxartist with about 100+ author favs, not someone with around 20.

#20, Yeah, a piece of artwork with a huge watermark over it. Trust me, removing that thing takes a lot longer than it looks.

#20, Why would the number of author favorites have anything to do with it?
Your assuming rank and technique go hand in hand, popularity and skill go hand in hand, etc. A common misconception on this site, and something I don't concern myself with [rank].
The problem sometimes with art, especially art of this nature where 90% of the time it is just composition of already created materials (logos, character art, etc.), is that showing the final product can sometimes be underwhelming in comparison to the work that went into it. People in the same field might have an understanding, since they do the same work you do. Karma, for instance, knows from experience because he also had to remove the watermark himself. Other artists might be able to look the original image and understand the time it took, and appreciate the outcome. But if I were to show the before and after images of the front to a complete stranger, they might have the same reaction you did.
Having said all that, I don't expect anyone to favorite this box based on the difficulty or length of time it took to remove the watermark from the front. If I had found the same image in a big enough size WITHOUT the watermark, I still would have used it. Simply because that is what I wanted the front to look like. I am comfortable with the amount of changes I did to Kratos and the front as a whole. It is very subtle, but it is no slight edit. But again, unless you were there for the process it's a bit hard to appreciate.
So all you can really do is ask yourself, "Do I like the final outcome?" And you do.
And I appreciate it.

#22, O_O, easy brah. I've not seen the source image, but to me it looked like official artwork which has been edited slightly. I'm not complaining about what you've done in anyway, and can appreciate how long a box like this can take. A GoW boxart of mine simply had edited official artwork on the front, and even though I didn't expect to it to earn a HoF, I uploaded it anyway - because I liked the final outcome. Yet my most recent GoW boxart had approximately 5 images heavily edited on the front, which took a lot longer, yet only received the same amount of favourites.

Perhaps I'm just bias for work that looks like a lot of editing was involved, as I didn't realise you'd removed the watermark, or work looks exceptionally good - or perhaps maybe I just have sour grapes over how easily this box achieved a HoF compared with my own, which is understandable when the artist usually has a high amount of author favourites. So in reply to your original question, there a lot of boxarts that get HoFs very easily because of rank, and not because of the actual skill involved or awesomeness of the box. I'm just surprised a relatively new boxartist achieved a HoF so easily, due to my personal experience.

No problem, man. I see where you are coming from. My response wasn't meant as an attack in any way. I apologize if it came across as one.
Perhaps the reason you are seeing artists with a high number of author favorites get into the HoF so quickly sometimes, is because their boxes get more exposure through the "Recent Boxes From Favorite Artists" right on the front page.

#25, yeah true. Although half of the time I think people are more inclined to favourite the work of a well-known boxartist.

link if you have the picture without it can you upload it as well?
