You could perhaps try to do a few less and instead concentrate on making a few really creative covers based on your own ideas. For example, it didn't take me long to do a 'Google Image Search' based on your last few covers, based on other people's fanart...

I've used other people's fanart for a couple of my projects, so I'm guilty too but I do try hard to avoid doing it and create something new myself.

I just thought I'd raise the question before it becomes a habit. Sorry. Keep up the good work.

Is that not okay to do? I don't know the first thing about drawing or visual design. I thought it was 100% cool to use existing images for fanedit covers.

Is that really not how most FE covers are done? Do people design their own stuff from scratch usually and create the designs? I thought it was mostly mixing up photos and logos, essentially and then making it look pretty and/or cool. I really had no idea that was an etiquette breach; I wasn't ever trying to imply anything different.
