Hello and welcome.
I'm gonna let ArieS or Schimi2k field this question as they fulfill most of the requests around here and may be able to give you some pointers.

I can tell you that the basic idea is to post links to high quality sources so that the people that fulfill the requests do not have to hunt them down. Just head to the page of the Movie/TV/Music that you want art for. Go to the proper section and use the request button. There you should be able to follow the instructions and create a request.

OK - to request a cdart - just find a pic (preferably the largest possible) and copy the link - you can also give links to logos and fonts (where applicable)
go to the movie in question and move down to the cdart section and press the request button - from here you can put in your copied links and any other info (bluray/3d/dvd also language) that is helpful.
You don't necessarily need to find disc artwork just a decent pic that can be used on a disc - and the rest is up to the artists !!!
I would advise you not to request too many at a time as the uploaders/artists do this in their spare time.

The cap is only on active requests so once a request has been fulfilled you can request another, can't remember off hand, I *think* it's 5 per image type
