The purpose of the starscape is to signal that this is SF. If I decide to use the Robodog, that'll work for that either instead of or in addition to.

The lighting problem is the sharp bright light above and slightly behind the man, vs the soft reflected light that is under-lighting the wolf in the shade.

I like it.

Can you add something shiny under the wolf to explain it? Magic lightning, campfire or small fireball? Xen shouldn't be wearing camos and his hair needs to be messier.

The cover needs to signal that Xen is a modern man. Camo pants and belt work.

Covers are not a scene in the book. They are advertisements, that need to be honest, so the people looking for an SF adventure, get what they want.

What's really odd is that the wolf in the original picture looks pasted in, to my eye. Probably the lighting...
