    Wow, these are gorgeous!

    I kinda feel bad for the artists though... I hope more artists get credited.

    My My TOTALLY BREATHTAKING!!! However, I would say that The Rebirth of a Malicious Empress of Military Lineage is the best historical shoujo/joisei completed novel with face slapping! I wonder why, despite being so popular, it doesn't have a lot of fanarts yet! Would request you a favor.

    These covers are really good and look professional. Well, some of them made me laugh. "Packed with the same tropes!" :blob_grin:

    The new cover looks great. Nice colors! Although that author's name and Generic Novels :blob_grin:

    Well done once again!

    The first one is very dramatic and the title :blobrofl:

    Second one looks awesome, I'd like to read that novel if it was real. You're very good with making novel covers, I'm surprised you make them only for fun.

    Just trying a new lighting technique with this one. You can use the color dodge blend mode on a new layer over top of an existing layer to add quick and easy lighting.

    Thanks, but I pretty much just mess with text. The artwork is all found on Chinese pinboard sites like Huaban.

    You "just mess with the text" better than a lot of people, though. That's a marketable skill, especially with so many people self publishing these days. Authors can license a piece of art and pay you to use it in a cover design. They'll hire you if they want a competitive edge since people do judge books by their covers.

    Just came across this thread today, and I gotta say that you're really good at this! You can actually become a professional cover layout designer for an actual publishing house (or are you already?).

    And I must add that I can see improvements in your designs too. The earlier ones use fonts and colors that would make the covers look kinda cheap, though I can see it mostly on the joke covers. But the recent ones have so much better design that's suitable with the mood or overall atmosphere of the illustrations.

    That's great kudos to you! :aww:
