I like it, but the title being reflected in the water makes it seem cramped and cluttered. It's a neat idea but with everything else that's going on in the cover, it just seems unessisarry and it takes some focus away from the artwork [like a kick in the shins would].

=D How was the trip by the way? I've been wondering when you'd have something new to show.

I like this latest one the best. The first one didn't have enough, the second one had too much, but this one is perfect.

I really hope you're not talking about the strip club downtown on Young Street [as seen in the new Hulk movie.]

Oh also Pascal, I'm not saying that I dislike the artwork. The art and feel is fantastic.

Oh, yes - I'd buy this book.

Although I do agree that the type in the water effect could go and I wouldn't miss it. :)

The cover art is looking lovely.

Could you possibly show where the crease will be once it is folded? I think that will help in visualizing this on the bookshelf or in a stack at a booth at comicon.

Cheers to you!

I definitely like this one the best. It's very busy (in a good way), very effective use of color and gradient, and I get a sense of relaxation and fun positive energy at the same time.

In fact, that's pretty much how I feel about all of your stuff :)

I thought he might be referring to the Halo 2 map. Which would also be confusing. :)
