So I've decided to make a comic. I'm sure it's going to be a thing now. I'm confident in my new story ideas. It's the art department that I feel I'll need help in.
The concept of my comic is basically a Highschool set in a future setting with aliens, androids, and future astronauts forced to become classmates. The story itself will follow several different students, each dealing with their own problems that'll be varied in tone and seriousness. The goal is to showcase Highschool experiences that range from severely harsh to cute and shallow.
For instance, one character may face homelessness while another tries to become prom queen.
To get back to the art, here are a few examples of what most of the comic will look like.
Disregard the story beats for now because they a drastically different from what I'm currently writing. These should be taken only as examples of the style.
If you've ever played a visual novel game, you'll be familiar with my approach. But visual novels often have special images (CGs) that are more detailed and less stagnant. That's what I'm looking for. I want a partner who can do approximately one unique image per page throughout my comic while I do the rest, as seen above.
I'll write the story, layout the pages, and handle typography and 90% of the work; I'll just need someone willing to draw those special images, and then I'll pop them into the appropriate panels.
This would be a long-term partnership. We can discuss scheduling and how fast we can reasonably produce pages, but I want this comic to be significant. I can afford to compensate anyone interested in helping me about $25- 35 a panel image. I would only ask whoever applies has a similar or complementary art style to what I'll be doing for most of the comic.
I also ask:
That you be 18 years or older
Not have an issue with LGBT content (we won't be making a social justice comic, but I do plan to incorporate a gay character)
That you have references of your Art to show
That you speak English fluently because it's my only language and it'll be the language of our comic
That you will be alright with our comic being published on multiple platforms, one of which will be my private website https://www.blackdoor.online/
If you have any questions, please let me know. I'm sure there are plenty of things I can elaborate on.
[Ps: I'll take at least a week to pick someone, that way anyone who finds this later will have time to apply if they want to.
