So first off, it's a pure collab. No profits, no money, no "omfg let's market the heck out of this and make bank!"
What I need
* In the form of a comic OR
* In the form of a few panels OR
* OR in the form of some promo images
What it is
My purpose is: To put this art up on TAPAS only as a hiatus placeholder. I'd like it to be several updates long, translating to a few panels per update.
Genre: Comedy / BL / Far more silly than "ooh swoon!"
Style: Color or BW is fine
The subjects: 2 male characters, perhaps a table / background stuff very lite, understanding of drawing Jellyfish (bunches of them) and pumpkins
TO BE VERY CLEAR :: this artwork collab will not be available for purchase through my books, so no funds will be earned through it.
COLLAB part: potential to help firm up the imagery in the first segment. potential to help adjust the conversation for the second part (as you can see below it's not that fleshed out at the beginning). I am hoping for at least 3 "pages" made up of 3 panels each, translating into 3 seperate updates to be delivered over the course of this fall/winter 2020. Note: if in color, you will be required to use the exact shades of pink hair color, blue hair color, and skin tones supplied for the boys; It is very important for me that artwork involving them retains their coloration.
Summary: Jellyfish joke. I had the idea several years ago where Will and Crow end up talking about children, or what you call a group of Jellyfish (i need to find the exact bits) and it comes up in conversation where they talk about how many children they want.
I thought of my boyos talking about kids and Will is like “we’ll have 663.” “wait WHAT?!” “Well we’ll start with 12.” “WHAT KIND OF KIDS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?” “jellyfish. what are you thinking about” “…so you want 663 jellyfish?” “well they won’t just appear all at once like some sort of mail-order pet.”
The next segment being the conversation about what do you call a group of jellyfish
Is it bad that on the car-ride home the other day I imagined Crow and Will arguing about how many jellyfish does it take before it’s a cloud? Crow’s trying to talk Will down into a few of them, not 663 lol And they get off the topic and start talking about how many makes a pride, a hoard and a murder XD And Crow just looks at Will and is like “I do not appreciate you using my name for that joke”. I wish I remembered how the conversation went cause it sounded hilarious! Oh well.
And the final group came to mind just the other day for me, which is a bit more thought out
Will walks in on Crow and stops suddenly. In front of Crow, sitting at a large table, are a bunch of seeds laid out neatly in front of him as he stares at them intently.
“Crow… What are those?”
“Pumpkin seeds.” he answers flatly without looking at Will.
Will steps up to his side and looks the seeds over. “What are they for?”
“I’m imagining what 663 jellyfish children will be like.” he answers. “and I’ve decided. We should start with pumpkins instead.”
“…You want 663 pumpkins?”
“Super large pumpkin patch. We’ll find the land. I’m not sure if we can protect them from freezing though but the jellyfish will have the same problem.”
Please feel free to ask questions and discuss! I would like to see one or two examples of art styles you plan to use
