thats just.. stunning. :D

(I think it's the lotr fan in me but I can't help but thinking about FotR when I head 'hallows' >.> Which ends up in me humming Tom Bombadil songs ^^;)

Thanks! It certainly made me think of Barrows and standing stones, as I said, and I guess at some level LOTR. ;~)

Have I already expounded on how much I love this piece and how much it deserves to be praised and loved by all? If I have, bear with; if I haven't, then OH MY GOD, WOMAN.

This sums up every bit of intenstiy that I've come to expect for the last book. The fact that you've used the trio in particular is especially so poignant and close to my heart - with Sumbledore gone, who better to fight the battle? Who better to have on the last book? *cries a little*

And then the lush detail of everything. I love that you used so much background and environmental elements in this, it's so confident and it makes so much sense that I can't help but think I'll be a little disappointed if book 7 doesn't somehow relate to this picture. *hee* I love the colours and lighting - so realistic, yet solidly based in fantasy. It is amazing.

And then... the darlings! The composition is fantastic - Ron ahd Hermione there, but facing away to the oncoming danger of the Death Eaters and who knows what else - they are literally covering Harry's back without any hesitancy. I love their pose - so brimming right one the edge of action, it's nail-biting to see them frozen like that.

And Harry. Oh my god, Harry. I feel like I can spend hours just staring at his face. Finely blaanced between boy and man, and that expression on his face of concentration and just. He is the hero, there is no doubt about that. My words just fail me. I just love.

LOVE!!! CONGRATULATIONS, you TOTALLY deserve it!! (and sorry about any typos, hehe)

OMG, Glock! What a brilliant review! Thankyou SO much! *hugs you madly*
Yes, I decided that the Trio would be the important thing in this book; Ron/Hermione supporting, while Harry does what he needs to do. And I'm so glad you think the cover works! It's always really special to hear comments like this from a fellow artist. ;~D

Utterly gorgeous. They portray so much mystery and the trio have so much personality. I wish these could be the actual covers. Wonderful. I'm sure I'm just repeating what everyone else said, but I had to say how much I loved them. Especially Hermione, she just looks so desperate and everything. Congrats on winning. You deserve it.

That is so beautiful. Man, yours is so much prettier than the actual book! Of course I'm biased, so I like the UK version best out of the two, but really: wow. ^^

This is so awesome! (found it thru dA) :D I love the details! (there're so much details!)

a little bit of concrit for the version with text and lines to indicate the folds for the spine and flaps tho. Ron's hand kind of looks awkward when you'd fold it. :c and the text for "and the deathly hallows" is slightly hard to read.

nonetheless :D It's pretty. And is very creative. It's obvious that you spent so much time on it! :)

congratulations for winning 1st place :) you deserved it! (and this is such a late comment haha)

Late comments are just as appreciated! ;~)
I'm glad you liked it!
I agree with your comment about the test being hard to read, but I was imagining it in a metallic embossed font like the other US HP books, so thought it would be visible in 'real life'. Heh.

I've fallen in love with this cover. I wish I could get a copy of the book with this on it.
