I know i have posted something similar to this before (and will probably do so again), but it is part of a series of graphics/covers needed for a series of stories i'm writing. I'm rewriting/expanding the fairytales of Hans Christan Anderson and The Brothers Grimm.

This time I am asking for a cover for the Hans Christan Anderson's story "The Last Pearl".

The Last Pearl
Size: 1280x1024 (desktop) AND 460x670 (Book Cover)
Images: old fashioned crib, pearls, stars, white coffin.
Color Scheme Preferences: muted blues, whites, silver/grey if possible on a grey-scale background. Think Twilight sort of style.
Quotes: “The Last Pearl”, “One Upon a Time” & “ 'The pearl must not be missing, it has to be there!' 'She will come, when she has time to come. And she will bring the pearl and it will be on a day that we do not wish for her to be here, but she will come.' " (two characters speaking, one quote)
Desktop Orientation: start bar at bottom of screen (1/2 inch), three rows of icons on the left.
Additional Information: Since this is based on Hans Christian Anderson's “The Last Pearl” a single pearl is a must. All other images are optional, however a coffin highly desired. “Once Upon a Time” in an elegant/flowing script please in the bottom right hand corner in large letters. The last quote is not necessary, however if there is room and it works with the image, can you please include it? Thanks.

I would like both the Desktop and the Book Cover done together as a set please. The book cover is for my iPad and Kindle to go on the cover of the story and is for personal use only. (I have too many original and fan-fiction stories on there that it is becoming harder to figure out what story is what). Please and many thanks!

Sorry DiongoLando, but you're not an artist here, and our rules clearly state that you must first become an artist before you can take requests. For more information on becoming an artist, please see +here.

This request is still open.

As you've been waiting a while, would you like this moved to member requests? It might get picked up faster there. :)

I'm sorry but this has to be re-opened since I found that these images aren't exactly under copyright and just be safe.

They are beautiful. Thank you!

by three rows of icons - i mean that all of the shortcuts are on the left of the screen so could any writing etc, not be on the left hand side as they will be blocked/covered by them.

Thank you so much!

Just a couple of small changes:

Would it be possible to make it slightly more blue, since the story is actually about a male? If not then it is fine as it is.

And:

can you swap the writing around - "The Last Pearl" on the locket, and "Once Upon a Time" underneath, in the current Script/font that is currently in those positions?

Many Many MANY Thanks!

Next time, Chocolateluver, post stating that you're reopening your request in a new post so a moderator & the requester know you're not planning on filling it. This area is one of the places where double posting is okay. ;)
