I'm considering creating an app that uses webtoons to teach languages and am trying to get a better idea of what the costs would be and see if there would be interested people in this community.
The webtoons would be much shorter than most you'd find on Tapas. Most stories would be around 2000-4000 words, would need to be original, and have all the elements of a good story. Also, since they're created for language learners, the stories need to be written extremely simply, around a 1st-grade difficulty level, or easier.
Then, I'd be looking for an artist(s) to turn those stories into beautifully illustrated comics. Lots of different styles would be suitable, but they'd all need colored.
I'm not able to hire immediately but would be looking to do so in the coming weeks. If anybody could shed some light on the cost for the writing of the short story or illustation of the comic (how much per panel is typical?), that'd be extremely helpful. And if you're interested in the job, please leave a reply or message. It would probably start out with smaller projects at the beginning while we test the idea and hopefully lead to longer-term work.
