Did you want the red box to blend in with the background? I don't want to critique it if that was the intent originally. The box is very well drawn you're dead on with how i remember Pocky stick boxes to look.

these are very good.
i like the strawberry kind the most. I need to find somehwere that sells them.
maybe a change in the red background..maybe white or grey, other than that looking good.

I actually did want it to blend in a little, mostly because I love that color. It stood out a wee bit more in the actual photoshop file I think. Woops.

They're also incredibly addictive.

Normally having the background so similar a color wouldn't work, but here it does from the shading/highlights, that accent the shape of the box and help form it even against a similar color. Really good :)

I love pocky! I don't know if I told you this, but at the Bolton Hill Grocery, they sell a knock off pocky brand. it looks exactly the same!
And I don't mind the red, it works well. like alexa said, the shading and the highlights help the box stand out; none of the edges of the box are the same value.

You did a lot with so little! It looks so realistic, especially in the thumbnail, despite having mostly simple shading. I like the red as well; it's different enough to stand out for me.
