Greetings my name is Giovanni but on here I go by CrossX8. I’m inspiring to bring my stories in Manga form and share them with the world. My age is 27 and I reside in Northern California. I like to state that I am looking to find artists and editors to collaborate and make my manga the best it can be. This will be my first time venturing in this line of work(my only experience being a fan of manga, comics and books)but one I am happy and excited to tread on. I currently have two projects in mind, with one being a one shot to gauge out or potential, and the other one I feel is more my epic possibly consisting as a very large narrative. So yes this will be my first time writing and giving sketches to those that I hope I can inspire to work with. I’m sorry to say I can only bring ideas to the table but if our work becomes successful I ensure to fully compensate for your valuable help. I hope we can take a chance and enjoy the adventure.
Both story projects have the sense of belonging in the action fantasy genres so for an artist it would be great if they are good with action scenes and are creative with the abilities either presented or they themselves are able to create. The one shoot has probably around 5 warrior characters in search of bringing down this powerful being for their own purposes. Maybe they change along the way?. For this one I have a title that’s pretty catchy but yet to know the name of the characters. I am open to suggestions. I am hoping to see how narrative and combat develops. If I were to guess again I’d say it’s kind of like a seven samurai style. That’s all I know for the moment with this one.
The one I believe to be an epic consists at around probably seven arcs. With the first three taking place in one world and the final four in another. I say seven arcs in the sense of seven books if they were independent novels. The first three deals with a female lead character(though I’m not completely sure I should take her route or some other character)The final four transitions to another world with some elements moving my female characters world into that one. Ultimately leading to some kind of state in the final arc, to which I don’t really have a clear notion.
These are the two projects I have had in mind for years now. I am excited to bring them to the world.
DRAWING AND WRITING STYLE OR AESTHETIC
I am looking to bring our work in Manga style since I’ve been a big fan of for years. I’ve enjoyed styles from Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto with his skilled combat depiction. Tite Kubo’s detailed Bleach designs and Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece with his highly talented narrative. But in the real sense I’ll know what I like an art style and I’ll be honest to state it. I’m open to your truthful statements as well. I’m hoping to find a good editor because I have understood the great need for one. I’m open to narrative guidance and improvement. For the art depiction I like both in color and black and white so I’m open to what the artists feels more comfortable with. So that is what I’m looking for in an Artist and Editor.
IS THIS NSFW OR SFW?
Well to be honest my stories do contain lighthearted and dramatic moments. So I’m not really sure we’ll know until we produce it.
IS YOUR STORY ONLY IN THE STATE OF ‘IDEA’?
Yes it is.
STATE HOW LONG THE PROJECT WILL BE
For the one shot I think it could last a couple of months I’m not entirely sure. If we reach the epic maybe a couple years?.
STATE CLEARLY IF IT I UNPAID, SPLIT REVENUE, OR PAID OR SOME OTHER COMPENSATION
At the moment I can only offer ideas I am sorry. As i stated above if we become successful I’m looking to compensate.
INCLUDE YOUR SAMPLE WRITING OR DRAWINGS
If I have inspired your interest to this point let me know and I can privately exchange my sketches.
