Erotic Fantasy Stories, Volume I by Nobilis Reed
“Nobilis Reed presents six erotic stories of magical transformation, from the absurd to the sublime. In this volume you will find gender-changes, breast expansion, and other weirdness.” via the description on the ebook’s page at Amazon.
Having done a podcast cover for Nobilis Reed (only click that link if you’re 18+, NSFW) a few weeks back, I know what I was getting into with this collection of short stories, but this time around I was required to show some skin… so to speak.
I’m still not sure I’m sold on the typography here, but I totally fell in love with the background image. It almost pained me to put anything over my lovely tree. Just because I <3 it so, here’s the background I created sans type and nekkid people so I can tell you more about it:
This guy here is one of my most favorite images I’ve created so far. I jumped right into this one with lots and lots of masking. It’s three separate images here; the tree, the door, and the surrounding forest. The sunlight streaming through is also an additional layer, plus some of the photographic layers are duplicated with different colors and blending styles to create the effect you see in the finished product. I haven’t had the opportunity to do too much creating of fantasy-type landscapes, so you can imagine how happy I was to get to play around with some of the suggestions from tutorials about doing so. If you have a fantasy story that needs a cover, please SEND ME ALL THE THINGS. I really want to do more of this stuff.
This is the first in a series of anthologies for Mr. Reed. If you’ll note the “Volume I” subhead you can see this is just the first. For future volumes I’ll be duplicating this with a changing color wash to vary the look from volume to volume. There are Sci-Fi volumes coming (*cough*) as well, but those will have a different look.
Basically, there’s more on the way!

It’s a beautiful tree, and a beautiful cover.
This has been an awesome experience. I am looking forward to doing more business with you.
