A lot of people like to have custom made cover art, overlays, backgrounds or art scenes! Here is a list of open shops and some other resources! But first, common art questions.

1. What is an art shop?
A thread where people provide art for your stories, generally for free!
2. What is a splash?
A splash is the image you see in a story that says, “This story contains strong language/ content” or “turn up your volume”
3. What are small and large covers?
A small cover is the cover you see before clicking on the story, a large cover is the one that shows up as you are about to click the play button
4. What is thread hopping?
Thread hopping is asking for the same piece of artwork from two different shops. Unless one of the shops denies your request.

That’s really weird! Are their any errors in your script?

Also, what is the name of your story? I’ll try playing it on my phone and find out if it works or not. Maybe it’s not a widespread issue. :thinking: :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
