    Really, who is it that even makes or picks the covers for the novels on the english qidian site?

    Aside from the render monochrome and then apply 1 color plus some smoke filters, the guy could've at least read a few chapters into the novels before picking a picture right?

    I mean, just look at them:
    HSN1F: Some guy in fighting pose with a weapon? But the MC just fools around and rarely ever fights, much less uses a weapon when fighting.

    MMORPG: Some guy in chinese getup and a glaive? But it's obviously a generic western fantasy MMO being played

    Crazy Lich: Black stuff with red? But the MC is an ice mage.

    God of Slaughter: Looks like some scrawny samurai? But MC is a beefy hunk that smashes people with his hands.

    TtNH: Some mage bloke? But the description clearly says MC is Ninth Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword

    I mean really? Seriously? Every time I look at the logo it just pisses me off with the total disregard for the series. Has any of the respective authors even seen what picture that's gotten picked to represent their works? What the heck :notlikeblob:

    More examples-

    When a Mage Revolts-
    What is the MC? - A water mage.

    What is the cover - A fucking musketeer.

    -------

    The Wizard World -
    What is the MC - A mage

    What is the cover - A mummified Annabelle.

    Release that witch cover is satisfying though.

    It goes to show that pettiness can go far. Seriously? Even the cover page of novels are being bombed? xD:notlikeblob::hmm::notlikeblob:

    what do you expect on a webnovel? most of the authors don't have budget on covers, unless if your name is TJSS

    They just use whatever cool pictures they can find in the image stock and photoshop them with the coresponding letters..
    its not the guy's job to read the novel, but to make a cool looking cover.
    I bet that one guy photoshop so much stuff that its imposible for him to read them all..

    In case you didn't know, most of qidian's covers were stolen from other peoples work on the internet. They just edit it a little to make it less obvious. Those arts were not made specifically for those novels.
