I'm blown away at the creativity and accuracy of the design in meeting my written description. The quick turn-arounds, and the willingness to assure my satisfaction.
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!
As usual it was fun working together with Torsten. This project was particularly challenging as it was a merger between science fiction and fantasy and I think a great cover has been developed!

Other color requirements

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

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.
