Perhaps I am too much of a perfectionist, but I have been working and re-working the cover (and even did a couple more edits to the story... what's that? the 10th? 12th? I've lost track)...

In this one I lengthened the hair on the forehead, fixed up the eyes and re-positioned them in an effort to make the animal LOOK at the viewer)...

What do you guys think? Good enough? Or should I work on it a bit more?

You've got me - looking forward to reading it.
Did you find a publisher willing to publish?

Looks great Wolf and im no artist but since your asking for suggestions, i would say to make the hair on the left of screen shoulder/chest area more pronounced or the same length as the hair on top of the shoulder. Most important that your happy with! (thumb up)

Hi Wolf, I’m surprised that you want to tinker with it further. Looks good as it is,
although I can see how you improved the pin dots of light on the red eyeballs.
I suppose the trick is to know when an image is complete.
To my eye the new hair is ok but in version 4 I liked the way you enhanced
the beast’s bony nut by making the forehead and scalp blend together,
even a wrinkle.

I'm self-publishing with a publishing group that I researched. The bloke is waiting for me to finalise everything, then it's off to the printers.
