This is posted earlier than I would like, since I am going away for a week and want to submit this for the Summer of Sonic competition before the deadline. I wanted to do another cartoonish custom box like my last one. Everything is drawn by me except the rings and clouds. Template courtesy of Eggboy'13 in resources.

Nice artwork. Some minor editing could go a long way towards perfecting the front. For example, a shadow beneath Sonic, and some faint motion blur on the environment surrounding Sonic to give a "speedy" feel? I feel I need to mention that Sonic's hair is blown to the right. Considering his speed and the direction he's running, shouldn't it be more centered?

Just my thoughts. Let me know if they're at all helpful.

#2, A shadow below could him could help. Maybe I'll add that in a couple of days. Also, there is actually a faint motion blur right behind him. As for the hair, that's just how I drew it and I didn't think about the direction he was running but that does make sense. Thanks for another comment, and they're always really helpful.

I think the custom art is great, I love the way sonic is running at you.
about the hair, maybe he's just got a side-wind that blows him off the course?
The back has really got that 'arcade feel' to it, wich is a good thing.

just add a shadow to sonic and a gradient on the grass, to give it more perspective.
other than these things, you've done a fantastic job.

Love it. The islands in the back seem a little off though. I feel like it needs some sort of detail where the bottom of the islands meets the water. Other than that, the work put into it is admirable and deserving of a fav.

I agree with sd1833, the fron could use shadows and maybe a motion blur around sonic, to make it look like it's actually running at high speed. I agree with beardedwalrus, also, and think a little more detail on the bottom of the islands would have been better. The text o the back's layout is actually very plain and uncreative; three paragraphs of centered text, and that's it? I also dislike the way the screenshots are there, in the middle; If they're supposed to be part of Sonic's trail, I like the the idea, but could've been executed better. The Sonic on the back could use a little blur, too, like the one in the front. I see you tried to mimic the style of the game's logo on the text on the back, but I think that style would work with bold, big text (Say, a tagline, a logo) and doesn't do well with supposedly-to-be-read-throughout text. You could try to level up the saturation/vibrance of the SEGA logos and of the SEGA Seal of Quality, as they look very desaturated right now. Also I think you should put the barcode at the bottom, at the right of the SEGA logo.

Overall, the custom art is nice, but this could've been much better.
