Hello, i go by Barakat, profesionally i'm a musician and lyricist/songwriter. After hitting a creative standstill with music, i searched for what i really wanted within myself : turns out my love for writing lyrics comes from the love of telling a story and conveying the emotions and ideas of the world around me. So i decided to start writing a webtoon/comic in hopes of rekindling my love for writing(so far so good!).
The project i need help with is a webtoon/webcomic based on a thriller/action story of a young man looking for redemption and salvation. The story is set in the fantasy world of Alard, a vast continent filled with vast scorching sands, deceitful mirages, treacherous heights, oases that provide short respite and nurturing rivers. Alard was conceptualized from my fondness of the nature of the Sahara and the Levant/Middle-East, as well as the Islamic Golden Age (Rest assured, there will be no real world religions in the story, i'm refering to the golden age purely for artistic purpose) and Tales of Arabia (Essentially what Prince of Persia is based on too!). The Continent of Alard, as beautiful as it may be, houses wars, political conflict, crime, violence, and supernatural beings known as Djiin (Basically just desert demons). These conflicts will be explored through the story and the main character. I have linked a map of Alard and a Main Character design under.
I want to bring this world to life, but i realize that in order for that to happen, i have to start small: A one-shot.
My plan is to create a one shot to draw attention to the series, and if things go well, we can take it from there. I'm working on a limited budget for the one-shot and can offer a maximum of 100$ for the work. Keep in mind that receiving the money as compensation for your work does not mean that i don't see our work as a partnership. On the contrary i want to find a partner/collaborator and still pay you for the one-shot, albeit a meager amount for what your work might truly be worth. If things turn out good , and the story gets picked up, we can split the revenue and credits equally, as you become a co-creator !
So to sum up what i will be needing:
A partner that can bring the words i write to life through drawing ,colouring, paneling.
No required software
Schedule is fall about being flexible
Can't wait to hear from you !
