Edit: to include more info and give the thread another purpose! At earlybird-obi-wan's suggestion, I'm changing this thread slightly. We thought it'd be cool if fanfic authors could show off their covers, and I figure we might as well used this thread rather than having two. So come one, come all, and show us what you've got! If you don't have a cover and are looking for one, then my offer below stands. Likewise, if anyone else is offering to make covers, or maybe illustrations, feel free to post here. Here's my offer: I can make you a cover for your fic using existing images, with the Star Wars logo, title, and your name. You tell me what image(s) you want on the cover, give me a colour scheme if you have a preferred one, and I'll make it for you. For images, you can pick whatever canon stuff you can find, or something from my fan art or your own, or a mix. But if you want me to include someone else's fan art, you'll want to ask their permission, unless you've already got it. Links for finding images: - [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10020]The Fan Art resource thread[/link] (remember to ask the artist!) - [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/]Wookieepedia[/link] - My [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/gallery/967239]Star Wars art[/link] and [link=http://svenjaliv.deviantart.com/gallery/6979612]a few extra sketches[/link]. And of course, there's always Google image search. If anyone has links to add, please do! To give you an idea, here's some examples of mine: [image=http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/193/a/3/cover___hero_for_hire_2_by_svenjaliv-d3ney08.png] [image=http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/193/5/a/cover___red_sky_blue_flame_by_svenjaliv-d3ney0m.png] [image=http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/193/2/3/cover___rogue_jedi_by_svenjaliv-d3ney16.png] [image=http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/193/c/6/cover___sum_of_their_parts_by_svenjaliv-d3ney1j.png] [image=http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/193/9/0/cover___sword_of_the_jedi_by_svenjaliv-d3ney1w.png] [image=http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/193/7/e/solo_moments_cover_by_svenjaliv-d3ney2i.png] [image=http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/193/8/b/cover___awakened_by_svenjaliv-d3nexzn.png] (Yeah, most of them aren't real books/fics, more's the pity I guess...) Why am I offering this? Because I like playing around with graphics and I like making covers. Because it makes for a nice distraction and it doesn't cost me much effort. Because it's good practice for an aspiring cover artist like me. Because TFN's fanficcers helped me with my thesis and I want to give something back. Only one caveat: you can re-upload and share your cover all you like, but I'd really appreciate credit (especially if it uses my art), and it's for online/digital use only. If you want to print it or something, please ask my permission first, 'kay? That's it, really. So, if you want a cover, you can reply here or PM me or get in touch via deviantART, whatever works. Here's a form with the info I need (it's explained a few posts below): Title: Author Name: Images: Background: Colour scheme: Concept: You can leave these last three up to me if you're not sure/don't care. To clarify, the background can be blank, any colour, an additional image (like a spacescape or something) or you can leave it out if you just want your images to take up all the space. The concept is what you want it to look like - how you want the images arranged, if you want a special font, if you want the title somewhere specific, etc. First come, first served. Have at it!
