What are variant covers?
We had a little confusion last month regarding OCs, so wanted to clarify what we’re after this month. Basically put, a variant cover is a different version of an existing cover (You can see examples in our Archive section from the original webcomic and bonus issues)
What this means with a variant cover is you could do a version using your own OC characters (If you want to use someone else’s OC please contact them and ask permission first, also let us know so we can credit them!)
Alternatively you could do the same cover but in your art style or read the comic and do a cover based on events in the comic (so the image may well be totally different than the original cover). There are also other possible variations (Characters as zombies, vampires, babies or done in the style of a classic movie poster).
Below are a few examples of existing Reynard City variant covers to show you what we mean.
Thanks to everyone who submitted OCs for last month’s Fanart Friday, you can check out the video here
