You can apply regardless of your creator rank.
Let's draw a "single illustration"
for the cover illustraion!
Cover illustration range
The range the cover illustration is the front cover, spine, and back cover. We're looking for a "single illustration" that connects all of them.
Illustrations that have a separate design for each cover are not acceptable.
Let's download the template and start drawing the cover illustration!
※Be sure to use the template.
Points to consider when drawing a cover illustration.
It is recommended to place important things on the "front cover" side. (For example, a character's face.) The center of the canvas will be the spine. Therefore, we recommend that you do not place any important objects in this position. It is not recommended to use a design that divides the book by the spine, as the spine may be displaced.
The illustration you draw.
