Just wanted to share the various webnovel covers I've made over the years. Some were intended for (an are actually being used) real webnovels, and some are just dumb jokes. A couple are posters. In no particular order:



This is a joke cover I made to poke fun at the Generic Cultivation Novel, as I call them. The Qidian logo in the corner was just one I had handy, I wasn't trying to poke fun at them, actually. There are Generic Cultivation Novels on all webnovel sites.




This is the sequel to Generic Cultivation Novel. The title a reference to True Martial World, though the taglines could refer to any number of generic eastern fantasy novels. Title font is Painting With Chocolate, iirc.



TMR cover I did for the finale. Originally this was a poster that had "Finale" on it. Title and author text is handwritten (by me).



Concept cover I did for Supernatural Girlfriend. Not an official cover.



This one is a dumb joke cover. That horse's face, lol. I was browsing Huaban for artwork and came across this and that horse's face gave me the idea.



I did this TGR cover for fun and gave it to Thyearia, who used it for the official English cover (WW translators have to provide and pay for their own English covers themselves if they want one). Though for the WW cover I added "Wuxiaworld" to the bottom in case aggregators grabbed it. In the original artwork, which I think I found on Huaban, the dude has black hair. I changed it to blue because that's the one thing I knew about the novel's MC.



ROS cover I made for etvo to celebrate 200 chapters. I was just trying for a completely different style here. Font I think might be Marvin Visions, can't remember exactly. The flowers I found on Huaban, as usual.



For this one I was just trying to get as close to the original cover on iReader as I could. I think it's pretty close.



First ROS cover I made. I was never happy with the font choice here, but I never went back and tried something different. Artwork was the same 17k used on a banner ad for the novel on their site. A lot of the artwork you see on webnovel covers can be found on Huaban or Dutang, which are Chinese sites similar to Pinterest.



This one is just some silliness I did for my friends over at Chaleuria. Went through many variations with title cover, but I live the silver the best. A gold version also exists. Just a joke cover. Used the same font for the title as the There Will Be Blood movie poster.



The latest cover I have made. Really happy with how this came out. They chose to use this for the official volare English cover. Artwork is the same as on 17k's site. I added a yellow filter over it to make the background look more "dreamy". Really happy with the title font, which I can't remember at the moment. Gold pattern overlay on the font to make it actually look like gold. This is the spiritual successor to TMR. Food porn novel, lol.



English cover I made for Ruyi's completed translation of Falling Dreams of Fang Hua. Artwork is the same as on the original Chinese cover.



Cover I made for fun for what was supposed to be Hyorinmaru's new translation after Martial World finished. But some failed communication between Wuxiaworld and Tapread (owned by Zongheng) led to this one being cancelled on WW since Tapread was already translating it. Same art as on Zongheng's Chinese site. I was just trying for a duplicate.



Joke novel cover. Artwork inspired the title.



Another joke cover. Artwork is by Ibuki Satsuki, one of my favorite artists. Her ancient Chinese artwork is amazing. Just wanted to do a transmigration novel cover.



I'm probably most satisfied with this one. I like the way the title came out. Was trying for a copy of the Chinese original, close as I could get. This one is coming back on volare. A translator has already been found. Old chapters are being edited, so not sure when it will re-debut.



UPX cover I did for fun, just trying to match the original is best I could.



Fake movie poster. Artwork by Ibuki Satsuki. I have no idea the original context of this art, but when I saw it I thought of John Wick and came up with this idea.



Joke ROS cover I made for etvo. Background art by Ibuki Satsuki.



Practice DCF cover, same art as on iReader. Not the official art. Yuuko at volare did the covers for the ebook, which had been completely finished since February. Not sure when it will be released.

Joke cover. Artwork inspired the idea. Found the art on Huaban or Dutang, I forget which.



This is the official cover I did for my own translation of The Sketch Artist. Went through several versions; this is the final one.



Joke cover. Tattoos on her arm inspired the idea.



Practice cover I made for LOAR. Same art as on Zongheng's site. Not quite sure how I feel about the title font.



Unofficial BPC cover. Same art as on iReader (original art is Ibuki Satsuki).



Joke cover. Art inspired the idea. Looked like he was describing with his hands how big the fish he caught was, lol. I kinda wish this novel was real, actually.



Practice cover I did for DT. Not official. Just practice to see how close I could mimic the original. Learned how to make mist in Photoshop in the process.



Random joke cover. Art inspired the idea.



Official cover I made for my own current translation on volare, Song of Exile. I really like how this came out. Font is Trajan Pro.



English SOTR cover I made for etvo. Ripped off the art from Webnovel's cover, lol. Now that I look at this one again, there's some kerning issues with the title I'd fix if I ever went back to this.



Promo poster I made for the finale of WDQK. I like how this came out. Font is Trajan Pro. Yes, I know the MC uses a spear and not a sword, but it still looks epic.



English PGC cover I made. Kinda unfinished because I wanted something for that white space on the left but could never think what to put there. Same title design as the various promo posters I have made for PGC to celebrate my friend Ruyi's progress! Go read her translation if you haven't!



This one pretty much explains itself.



Joke cover. Art inspired the idea. She looks high so I imagined what if it were a transmigration novel where a stoner dude is hit by a bus or something and goes back in time into the body of an imperial consort, but she/he still gets high in ancient times and becomes a recreational drug expert. Another one I kinda wish were real.

And that's it for now! If I ever make any more I will add them here.

Man these are amazing. I hope eventually I can commission a cover nearly as sweet as these for my novel, rather than using a my half-assed canva one. Super great job!

The joke covers are funny and interesting! By the way, the BL joke cover is so good it reminds me why I don't read 'em. I hate them for being handsome af :cry::cry:

I almost forgot; you've got some mad skills! Keep it up!

Haha, yeah, though I don't know how you'd make a whole story out of that. I wonder what the original context of that picture was, cause when I found it it was that whole things, only blank. I only added the text. So I wonder what it was originally used for.
I NEED to read those jokes stories so bad!!!!!
lol same
