    Hello all, been around for some time, procrastinating like forever, doing nothing in my life and at long last I've decided to learn some skill for myself and stop lazing around.

    And here I am, with barely any knowledge in graphic design wanting to do some book cover as training.
    Anyone here need any book cover for their novel can request me by PM. Include details like :

    1. Picture dimension. ex: 800*600 pixel
    2. Link to your novel if you have one. I need some info on your novel to get some idea on the cover design.
    3. <Optional> Any illustration you want to be in the cover. Like your MC illustration or his sword or whatever. I can't draw so you need to provide the art.

    I'll try to make at least 1 cover a day. Since I'm still new at this I can't promise much about the end product quality >.<

    Hopefully I get better by time goes on.

    Day 1 : Feel it missing something. My fontography still need works.

    2nd Cover requested by @Sourceofchaos
    Saint in The Sky.jpg

    --------------------------------------

    Though the plan is to make 1 cover a day, without any request i just dont have the drive. Though I still learning daily. I still cant cut out image properly.


    Requested by @Mnotia. Just a simple one. 1 dragon image and another background image and then slapped the text on it.

    I'm not saying that requesters can be choosy or demand beyond more than what you give considering it's free, but how about giving examples or show your art styles along with your post? That way, they will know what to expect and have a rough idea of how your arts goes.

    If you are really interested in updating yourself with some skills and are interested in graphic designing and such, I would recommend you to actually learn how to draw and paint in at least one medium. Learning to do that would give you a great perspective to art in such a way that it will help you grow both as a graphic designer as well as an artist. At least, that's what I have experienced. Best of luck.

    glad you like it.

    a disclaimer though, if you ever get popular enough and want to publish the story, dont use this cover. the dragond and bg artwork is not mine.

    anyway, anyone else want to request a cover?
