Possible cover

Those rats look cute instead of terrifying. Heh.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find pictures of scary rats?

Look for pictures of possums, shrews, and other members of the rodent family that come in large sizes?

The close don't look much like a khaki uniform, especially the shirt. He's also not sweating enough.

Lookout, Ebsa, there's more rats behind you!

Interesting first concept
Not the khaki uniform described, not any kind of uniform.
utility belt with empty holster?
wall looks like cardboard with painted bricks
eyes should be blue
needs to look more like he's been fighting, dirt, sweat, blood. Slightly crazed attitude.
I think he needs the more J-shaped crowbar.
rats need to look different, more muscular, scruffier, inverse-square law applies so should be stockier and squatter. Obvious signs of fighting for food and survival.
Maybe some dead bugs on the ground

Other than that not a bad idea.

Re: Interesting first concept
Maybe start with an IDF soldier in training and some wharf rats (change color of fur) and work from there?

Love the concept. The shirt has too much pattern.

Cover without a person.
Just a crowbar, a shotgun and a toque (cook's hat) on top of a kitchen worktop.
Doesn't give away too much of the story, but more or less defines Ebsa.

Re: Suggestion:
It needs to advertise "Adventure! Danger!" I found a premade cover I'd love to buy, if only it didn't cost pretty much what I expect in profit.

Re: Suggestion:
I think the cover you've done is pretty cool, actually, in terms of concept and layout. There are two aspects I find less-than-ideal. First, as with many, I find Ebsa's shirt disconcerting - it looks furry/fuzzy rather than uniform-like. The other is the wall/floor area looks slightly off, somehow. I'm not sure if it is just that they are so uniform, or what, but there's something there poking my mind as "wrong."
