This was done for a challenge group on tumblr, and OH MY GOSH was it fun. I had so much fun designing color scheme (though I'm still not satisfied with it), symbolism, and deciding what to focus on in a very emotionally heavy scene.
If you have not read The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley, GO DO IT NOW. It's a great fantasy epic with realistic characters and a female protagonist.
Also my first and favorite fantasy novel.
