My Cover Art Design: Tiger's Dream

UPDATE (10/1): Just found out that my cover was chosen as the runner-up winner in the cover design contest. So excited about that. :D

Making the Grade hosted a contest to design cover art for Colleen Houck's upcoming final book in the The Tiger Saga, Tiger's Dream. I was so excited, I had to have a go at it. The deadline for entries was yesterday so I figured it would be okay to post mine now. Winners will be announced by Oct.1. Keeping my fingers crossed. :)

Now in case you haven't seen the awesome covers for the first four books in the series, I've included them here:

I have to admit, I've not read this series yet but I really want to. That being said, I didn't know much about the stories, especially the last book. I do know that one of the main characters is a girl named Kelsey. So for my entry, I wanted to include a girl in the cover though she's not the focus.

So anyway, here is my attempt at making a cover for Tiger's Dream.  The henna border art and title was provided for use if we wanted to use it although it wasn't required.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. There have been times that I've attempted something like this that I wasn't entirely happy with the outcome.
