i apologize for the short time frame for this one.. but with TCAF in April, i want to make sure ep 11 book is up and ready to go with plenty of time for edits and such before (basically. to not repeat what happened before SPX….)

the lesbian flag. orange, lighter orange, which, pink and darker pink

the episode 11 cover will feature… our holographic friend from the first few pages of ep 11! AYA!! and the color is this completely random color palette i found.

idk i just really like the colors. (this is a joke)

some hot aya tips:

her holographic form is pretty versatile! can be changed however she (or you) wants. the main things that’d stay consistent would be the blue parts of her face, her hair, and her hooves (because i love them). check out the images under this for more variety, and her robo-form!

a reference image for aya from kings of sorts. she is a pink humanoid, with elf ears, two buns, and two pieces of hair coming down in front of her ears. her facial features are bright blue, and instead of feet she has hooves. she's wearing a light pink dress. text above head: "holograph form (entirely digital)" text pointing to hair: "wires" text on left side of face: "no nose" text pointing to bottom of hair piece: "glows!" text near arm: "skin can be any color in holo-form! like a v-tuber (sort of)" text near feet: "her hooves!" all other text are color notes.

and here are some more aya images for inspiration!


1) i want these to be easily sourced to the artist so please post it on whatever social media you use, tag me and use the tag #koscovercontest (i’ll be reblogging/rting all of them)

2.1) when you’ve done that PLEASE EMAIL ME a link to your post and the actual pic to [crabbng@gmail.com] so i dont miss any! (and also so i can contact you easily if u win!) 

2.2) email me the background you’ve made! (just the pic without the character)

2.3) please include how you would like to be credited for your work! i.e. name or @ or both

3) submit your own work (obvi), multiple submissions are just fine! and if you won last time, go ahead and enter again!

TEMPLATES/REFERENCES: there are templates available to show you where the title/author/cover artist name will be for the final version, these are just for your reference only! please ONLY submit your artwork. 

references can now be found in the same place as the cover templates!
templates/references can be found here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1GCBZB80zON_VEu28RCB3Ct2Vt9s7A8EK?usp=sharing


the cover (plus trim) is 8.75”x11.25” (300 dpi), the end result for the cover will be trimmed to 8.5”x11” by me, but keep that in mind while deciding on how to design your cover. PLEASE adhere to these specs! wrong specs can lead to an otherwise perfect piece not being chosen. 


starts now, ends Feburary 18th! so get them posted and emailed to me by then. it doesn’t matter if you send it in earlier or later in the timeline, all will be considered equally


the winner will (obviously) get their pic to be the cover and i’ll send you a free printed copy of Kings of Sorts Episode 11! and whatever is in the preorder pack. planning on having a hana and bonic chibi standee!

all entries will receive a free PDF copy of episode 11 when the book is formatted! which will likely be way before the rest is publicly posted so. just fyi
