I am not familiar with the book but I more than like the art for it, and no text covering it either. I like the canine and the stag in the distance of this image, at sunset. The plain yet elegant imagery is as good as ever even to the moss and the oak trees very nice. :) :thumbsup:

Oh wow, what a beautiful atmosphere! I think it will make a lovely wrap around cover :D. The deer looks almost subtly hidden in the background, creeping up on the fox(?). Very nice!

The composition is offset, because it is a wrap-around book cover. :)

You are doing your part to get an entire new generation hooked on foxes and deer, and books! It was book covers of this quality that got me to read!

If the books aimed at elementary-school kids had this sort of cover I might have read more when I was that age.

Well done! I was going to say it seemed a little unbalanced compositionally until I read that it will wrap around front and back covers. But then again, what am I thinking- you wouldn't make that elementary mistake anyway! LOL Great job!
