I thought submissions #1 and #4 did the best job of capturing the feel and look of the previous cover in the series, but honestly I loved every single one of these, so it was easy to just go with the reader favorite which turned out to be #4 by Kora J. (by a landslide).
Congratulations to Kora J!!
(I love the way he's clutching his collar, like he fears he's about to be bitten! :-) )
Kora, be sure to send me your Paypal address and the Shutterstock # so we can get the final version of this baby done. :-)
