Nacht’s Cover Thread 🌟 (CLOSED)


#1

Hello!! I’m Nacht and this is my cover art service thread. I’ll be making covers using Episode characters or custom illustrations of characters (see examples below). I’ll only be doing a few requests at a time, so watch out for the status of this thread.

Read the rules please! A lot of requests are being rejected due to not having read it closely.

I’m a beginner to digital illustration but I wanted to venture out, and I think I have a solid foundation in graphic design—or at least used to—but I haven’t done it in a looooong time. So please bear with me and my rough edges! I’ve wanted to get back for a while, but life has been too busy and fast-paced. Now it’s summer though, so I’ll have more free time.

Here are some examples of my work:
Episode Character Style (left) & Custom Illustrated Style (right)


I’ll need a good reference photo if you want an illustrated version because as I said before I’m very new to this!!
Also disclaimer: the style of these covers will probably change and evolve as I get more practice.

Some rules:
▹ If you receive a cover from me, you cannot request anyone else for a cover. Any other graphics or different cover size is fine.
▹ I would prefer if the story was published or close to publishing, because otherwise it would be a bit useless on my part. But at the same time, I’m just kind of messing around to get back into it so maybe I’ll let that pass??
▹ All my services are free, I only request crediting me clearly within your first chapter for my time and effort.
▹ If I give you the cover, you have 72 hours to pick it up or DM me with the changes, else I’ll make it a premade for someone else to take.
▹ Fill in the form completely and thoroughly with specific information and sufficient ideas. If there is a lack of or unclear information, it will be rejected.
▹ Be respectful and patient!! Especially patient. I may take a while because I’m new at drawing and haven’t done graphics in ages (also I have commitment issues, heh).
▹ I can reject for any reason, even if I’ve already accepted.
▹ So I know you read all the way, when claiming the remade, make sure to add “:star2:” somewhere in your response.

Not a rule, but I prefer doing fantasy or quirky covers (generally just where I can get really creative in putting together) as opposed to covers with just a plain background, plain characters, plain text, and voilà. (For example, the Game Plan cover.) It can get really monotonous after a while, so I’d appreciate if you hit me up with something fun and not totally eye-gouging.

Example form:

Title: Game Plan :star2:
Tagline: N/A
Author: Lilah Pieroni
Story Description: After his lover dies in an accident, quarterback star Tal Jacobson builds a wall around himself from his friends, family, and even football. Then Eva Tucker swoops into the scene and it seems like sparks are flying between them. But it won’t be easy for either of them as they will need to learn to face their darkest secrets or risk losing each other.
Cover Size: small [x] | large [ ]
Style: Episode character [ ] | Illustration [x]
Ideas: Tal and Eva embracing, American football/varsity theme, maybe Eva wearing Tal’s letterman jacket (in Eva’s outfit, she’s wearing a normal sized letterman but I would like an oversized male one for the cover), no hinting of death or sadness aspects please, neutral mood, some hints of red, black, and white as it’s the school’s colors (not too much)
Pose Reference: https://i.imgur.com/nQkSVdT.png

Title: The Pregnancy Curse
Tagline: N/A
Author: Dr.Smile
Story Description: Being the bad boy always seems like fun and games, but for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Too bad Tristan Stuart realized this way too late. [Male MC]
Cover Size: small [x] | large [ ]
Style: Episode character [ ] | Illustration [x]
Ideas: Carmela disappointed at or annoyed and Tristan next to her, angry with his arms crossed. Or maybe you could also put Tristan kind of scared. For the outfits, a leather jacket for Tristan and ripped pants and Carmela wears Jeans with anything but a crop top so. I think for the background a spell room if not a school hallway.
Any other poses but affectionate ones are ok.

First of all your art is AMAZING I feel bless to be able to request a cover :wink: This cover is for a project I’ve been working on, I’ve published many stories and I usually make my own covers due to not really liking others styles, but I decided to request one as i really love your style!
Title: Sensuality
Tagline (optional): N/A
Author (optional): Jayda MacGillivray x Calithas
Story Description: Captured by his thirst, his lust. He feds off your body and smirks at your sensuality. During the rush, will fulfilling his desires be the only thing you’re around for?
Cover Size: small [x ] | large [ ]
Style (one only): Episode character [ x] | Illustration [ ]
Ideas: My idea of the cover would be Amber (the MC) sitting on Prynce’s (the LI) lap while having a bite mark on her neck and maybe looking down on him and he looking up on her. Also have more a dark appeal. It’s a vampire story.

  • Hair - Beach Wave, Grey.
  • Eyebrows - Mature Round

New Writing Team! (CLOSED)

Hello,
@Popcat2010 You’re missing too many requirements, so I’ll have to reject. Sorry.

@Arwen Due to lack of ideas I can work with, I’ll have to reject. Thank you for taking time out to do request though.

@Dr.Smile07 Could you please give me a real life photo reference to the pose your want? I suggest something more exciting and a pose you can’t do in Episode as otherwise would be pointless to illustrate. And can you give me the specific clothing you want, because I’m bad at filling blanks. Otherwise, I would accept.

@Jahstoriess I’d accept and your form looks pretty good, but you’re missing one crucial thing. :wink: If you do choose to edit it with the missing essential part, could you also give me background/prop details + outfit details.

Thank you all for stopping by and sorry for any inconveniences.

Title: I’m A…
Tagline (optional): N/A
Author (optional): N/A

Cover Size: small
-But if you don’t mind can it be an outro, it will be in my story every episode. Here are the dimensions: 640 x 1136

Style : Illustration

Story Description

-Riley wants to be on the football team, but Xander is always in her way. Little did they know fate would take a different route. Can Riley make the team or will fate repeat itself?

IDEA

Basically I want Riley to be on top of Xander, wearing a football helmet. (Their school colors are Yellow and Black) Riley is sort of teasing Xander. While Xander is on the bottom of her annoyed, and just slumped. Xander has a foot ball in his hand and Riley is reaching for it with one hand while balancing on his head with the other. And they’re sitting on the bleachers sort of like the background you used in your example. (I’m sorry the background isn’t exciting) Also Riley is 5’4 and has freckles and Xander is 6’2 and has a cut on his eyebrow. Lastly Riley hair is really curly, so if you can, can you make her ponytail really curly, I’ll put an example.

Pose Idea:


Real life inspiration:
pose%20idea
For the facial expressions make Tristan look annoyed and in pain and Carmela look frustrated. I’d also like it if you could make their hair look all “ruffled” and messed up. (To kind of look like they’ve been fighting for awhile) She’s choking him by the way. If you think that’s too boring or not hard enough, then give them a few bruises too and some band-aids. For the background, I was thinking maybe a restaurant background or a school hallway or if that’s too boring a spell room.
Here’s a spell room background: (Credits to vd_backgrounds)

Clothing:

Thank you for your time, and I hope you accept my request.


#18

@Dr.Smile07 I’ll see what I can do, but accepted for now. :slight_smile:
@LeaHol Read the rules closely please! You’re missing something.

I hear you like fantasy :star2:

Title: Crying Galaxies
Tagline (optional): N/A
Author (optional): Hoodie
Story Description: Normal Girl With a normal life? Nope, not anymore, welcome to Galixis, get ready to shed some tears.
Cover Size: small [x ] | large [x ]
Style (one only): Episode character [ ] | Illustration [x ]
Ideas: For the small cover, I would like to have the guy and the girl doing those poses below. With the guy on the left and the girl on the right. The guy is a bit taller than the girl, and he’s looking down at her with a smirk. The girl is looking up at him with a smirk. Maybe with them being in a spaceship with a window that shows they’re in space. For the large cover, I would like the girl to be standing in ruins, with tears down her face, but an angry expression. She’s clenching her fists as if she’s just won a battle. She’s dirty and everything .
