I would like an ebook cover that meets the following requirements:
Height to width ratio of 1.6
Minimum 500x800 resolution
I have uploaded a rough sketch of what I had in mind, and would like to see some submissions with this look, but am also very open to fresh ideas. The primary characteristics to be used are as follows:
The cover should be dark in setting (dusk or night) and tone (not happy, but doesn't need to be sad either)
The central character is a young girl (7-9 years old) with jet black hair and emerald green eyes. She should appear either scared or neutral expression.
If a secondary character is used, it should be an equally aged boy, but only appearing as a silhouette.
There are two primary settings: a city with a tall tower at its center, and a lush green forest. These settings can appear natural or in a state of destruction (fire, crumbling, etc)
There are two other widely used colors in the story: bright blue (think hot flame) usually appearing as particles in the air (like fireflies) and deep orange, appearing as an Egyptian hieroglyph in the form of an eye.
Feel free to experiment with any combination of the above. The title "Shortcake" should appear across the top with my name "Christopher Gorham Calvin" appearing across the bottom. There should also be room for an italicized tagline "She was raised to kill... she chose to love."
