Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door box art cover
By avatar cole1497 6 on July 12th, 2012

This is my first box art, so I'd appreciate any criticism that's constructive (which, if that's in the rules, should go without saying). I made a few minor mistakes that hopefully aren't (too) noticeable.

I just realised I screwed up the 3d look of the display image, but with my slow Internet that took about 7 minutes to upload, so I hope it's fine with everyone else.

Nice one. The background is too blurry, but nice ideas there and a good concept. Fantastic first entry!

I couldn't find a hi-res of the map. To be honest, I probably should have just Gaussian blurred it to make it look like it's just an effect.

I like it man. As a first, it is really good. I agree with XBU about the background though. Also, dont put your watermark on the box, put it on the presentation. Otherwise, this is great, keep at it.

The presentation seems unnecessarily massive, but considering it's not directly related to the design itself, it's not a big deal.

In standard view, the front comes off as excellent. In full view, while the general concept and layout are still strong, the image quality and departures from the official resources (the logo) could do with some changes.

It might seem like a lot to ask, but it would have been neat to see the map recreated to compliment the high resolution. It wouldn't be terribly complicated since it's simple shaped/shaded.

Overall, it's still good work. Just those minor issues that could be addressed.

Great job, the way you've placed everything (characters, titles, screenshots) is very smart. The quality of the background pictures could be improved, though. They somewhat jar compared to the very high quality of the characters. Keep up the good work!
