Rafido was easy to work with and listened to what I wanted and needed.
Lena is absolutely brilliant! She got my almost perfect on her first swing at it and was super patient and persistent through all my nit-picking revisions. This cover exceeded my wildest expectations and I'm so grateful.
Great experience! Very responsive! Excellent design for my children's book cover, The Amazing Tale of the Magic Glasses.

Book cover type
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
No. I'm not certain if it matters for the cover, but the three colors I describe for the military uniforms are maroon, hunter green and gold. My logo has the correct maroon and green. I like a true gold like in jewelry.
The book cover you’re designing is the first in a series. The next three books are written and should come out in the next 12 months.
1. I want there to be a consistent theme for the series, so the next book has to be a similar feel
2. It needs to have a sense of science fiction/future, but there are NO alien creatures or beings
3. Needs to convey a military theme
Other than that, I’m open to any ideas.
Many of the designs have a similar feel. I'd like to see something else.
Also the knife image I uploaded is an important element in the book, if it can be incorporated.
I'm seeing images of fire, but there is none of that in the book. The planet they are on is very lush with lots of trees, grasses, and plants. It's called the Golden Star because all the plants and trees have a yellow hue.
The story takes place on a military base. They are in boot camp. So there is not a city feel to it.
