Amazing book cover. In fact, it was so amazing I had to buy it on top of another cover I liked. Great service too - kept working with me even when I had some annoying requests.
Thanks so much!

Ibaal did an excellent job. All the small design tweaks were expertly accomplished with speed and grace. I will definitely contact ibaal for my next covers!
Another superb effort! I can't wait to work with this designer again. He's the best at what he does... :)

Book cover type
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
open; should transport positive "light" feelings
I am looking for a design attracting "the community" as well as mainstream people.
Looking for a positive mood, triggering curiosity.
The story is about identity and being as true to oneself as possible- both characters keep secrets- maybe some Avatar stuff could fit
One is a mouse researcher working on sperm quality in mice, the other one is a fighter pilot;
flying generally plays a role.
A tornado jet plane, or some lab mice could be on the cover, maybe real pics or symbolized- open to everything.
