Alright, I’m just going to keep updating this as a process for anyone whose interested, plus it’s a little more for myself.
After much deliberation, I’ve decided To sign the contract and now I’m working with the company, so we’ll see where this goes. I’m not entirely confident it’s not a scam, (I’m about 80% sure it’s probably not) but for the moment everything seems legit. What I’m doing right now is submitting old episodes that I’ve already posted to Tapas so they can translate to French. In the future I’ll also be submitting New promotional images (my choice because I think my old ones are not as good as what I could do now) Such as banners (vertical/horizontal), character art as well as the fonts I use.
My one recommendation With regards to font, if you do sign with Bonzai make sure you know if your font is free for commercial use or not. There aren’t many font licences that I’ve bought but a lot of them require you to buy a licence if you receive money in any way (this also counts for people who make money on Tapas).
I was recommended using Blambot because it lets indie comic artists use some of its fonts for FREE. I picked up a dozen over last weekend. I can’t recommend it enough if you do want to do comics. I’m very much an amateur in this business, but having a licence for a font is always a good idea.
Also If you are approached by Bonzai and you’re thinking of joining, just be careful to do only what you’re comfortable with. For instance I’m not very comfortable submitting my files with ALL the layers Available. If anything got changed or copied I wouldn’t even know where to start so I send everything In the drawings as one layer And then Anything related to text has it’s own individual layer.
