Book Cover

I've been working away on a brief for a book cover.  It is part of a competition by Floris (an Edinburgh publisher) to rejuvenate the cover of the children's book 'The Hill of the Red Fox' by Allan Campbell McLean.

The competition details are here:


Below are two finished illustrations with minor differences.  I still don't know which one to choose.  Once the main illustration is done, it becomes a critique of small details:

Front/Back Opt 1

Front/Back Opt 2

Option 1 I like because it shows a different scene and more of the landscape, but Option 2 has the cover wrap around from front to back and looks simpler which can have more impact.

Overall I'm happy with the illustrations and enjoyed the process.
