Really like the effects!
I didn't notice the watermark until I read your description. Now I can't not look at it. :P

The trailer gave me the impression of cold and ice, but I'm not one to complain about different interpretations.

I did't know what to think of the trailer. My first thought was "Damn. I clicked on a starwars link, dint I..."

Welcome. :D

I didn't either... it was awfully mysterious. I made a picture based on it and it turned out real weird...

I'm kinda annoyed with all the people going "It looks like StarWars!" and "poncho!!1!1"   :XD:
343i just needed a way to show Chief and hide him at the same time, if you know what I mean. I also think the cloak was to show off their graphics skillage.

Awesome!!!  I love the texture of the sand! (The watermark doesn't look half bad either!)

If I were to make a watermark and apply it to my art (well, which is unlikely because i'm lazy and I have no people stealing from me yet XD) I'd probably put it in the corner so that it dosen't cover up the art so much.

Looks great, but do you have to put that watermark in the middle of the picture? It kinda ruins it imo and that would be a shame for your art :/

If I put it into a corner, it'd be easier for a thief to edit the picture and steal it :( I hate to ruin my own art like this, but Thieves have snapped my patience line.

Yeah I understand that, but still I wouldn't overdo it. The way it is now if good.
If they really want to steal a picture they will, no matter what. Even if there's an ugly-ass watermark in the middle of it. I saw plenty thieves getting around that problem by editing it out with shitty paint shills or by pretending to be said artist. So I don't really see the point of over-uglyfying a drawing as nice as yours.
