Heys, I'm doing a book cover illustration of a book that I like. Anne McCaffrey's Crystal Singer; original cover art done by Micheal Whelan. I love the back cover, but I'm having trouble with the composition for the front cover. Oh, and for some reason i thought it was a good idea to start with the size the book is. So my comp is no bigger than 9x7. >.<

Thanks ahead for any crits or comments.
