Random Graphic of the Month: January - e-book covers for T_15's Nick/Connor series

*looks at calendar* Yes, I know I'm a week behind, but here's January's random graphic of the month. I did actually start this on the first of January, and have been working on them on and off all month, it just took rather longer to finish than I'd expected.

Anyway, I've been uploading loads of fic onto my kindle lately, which gave me the idea to do an e-book cover for one my all time favourite fic series in the history of the fandom; telperion_15's Nick/Connor series. Not content with just doing one, however, I decided to make an individual cover for each of the major story arcs within the series (but not the standalones that slot in between the main story arcs, I'm afraid).


learning curve Full size (600x800) version here

without a paddle Full size (600x800) version here

the world shines for me today Full size (600x800) version here

inside men Full size (600x800) version here


forever and a day Full size (600x800) version here

no place like home Full size (600x800) version here



If you haven't read the series (and if not, why not???), you can find it here. It's a completely gorgeous long plotty story arc following Nick and Connor as their relationship develops during series two and beyond (although for quite a lot of it, the relationship tends to be in the background and there's an awful lot of mostly gen action adventure!).

These are fabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the style of the whole and the individuality of the single covers.

Really great work for a great series.

Thanks! I had pretty clear ideas before I started of what I wanted on each cover, I just hadn't realised how long it was going to take to do all of them!

Those are lovely covers :)

Thanks! Now I have covers I can get on with loading the entire series onto my kindle and wallowing in a re-read!

Connnnnnorrrrrr! **shakes head** Okay, I'm better now. These are beautiful and although I'm fairly certain I've read every word written about Connor/Nick, I shall have to go back to make certain. *g* Well done.

Thanks! It's a shame there hardly seems to be any Nick/Connor in the fandom these days, but this series is definitely one of my all time faves, and well worth reading if you haven't already.

Oooh, splendid!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 9th, 2013 11:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! These were great fun to do, although I think it took longer to find all the screencaps/promo pics than it did to actually make the covers!

My only real regret about having a bog-standard B&W Kobo ereader is not being able to have pretty colour covers for my ebooks.

These are so gorgeous!!!!

Thanks! You can't really go wrong with lots of Nick and Connor!

Brilliant! I especially love the Forever and A Day one.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 9th, 2013 11:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I'm rather pleased with the way that one turned out as well.

These are great covers!! I particularly like the last two!!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 9th, 2013 11:32 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! I had a very clear idea of what I wanted to do with Forever and a Day, but thought it was going to be horribly complicated to achieve. It actually turned out to be one of the quickest and easiest once I realised the best way of doing it, so I'm quite pleased with that one myself.

*jumps up and down* OMG, I had not idea you were doing these, thank you! they're all fabulous, of course, but I particularly like the ones for 'The World Shines...', 'Forever and a Day' and 'No Place Like Home' :D

*tackleglomp*

It's been my super secret project for January, lol! Glad you like them, though. Much as I love the triceratops in 'Without a Paddle', I think I agree with you, and those three are the ones that I think have turned out best from the lot. The last two in particular seem to have worked well.

I so admire these. You are super talented.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 10th, 2013 12:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! *blushes* I only really got into doing graphics last year, and still feel like a beginner in many ways.

Wow, these are really great! You did a wonderful job with them. I have to admit I haven't read this series, I put it on my to-read list when I saw it recced once, but sadly that list grows faster than I can cross fics off it! *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 10th, 2013 12:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks.

*pokes* you should shunt this one up the to-read list. It's one of my all time favourites in the fandom, and I've lost count of how many times I've re-read it.
