Once again I have been scouring the internet for artwork that is tagged with permission to use with modification. There is plenty of stuff out there, of course, but it isn’t all good, and crucially much of it won’t work as a magazine (or book) cover. There needs to be space to add text, and an awful lot of the art you can find online doesn’t have that.
However, I have once again been fortunate to find something that does work. This is by Ponte Ryuurui. You can find the original post for the art here. As I once again had to crop quite a bit out of it, I’m posting the whole thing below.
