Re: Writers & Artist looking for writers or artists

Hey guys and girls, I had an idea spring into my head yesterday for a comic, and I wanted to make it. There is only one problem though. I can't Draw! i need help to find an illustrator to help me draw my comic. If anybody would like to help me, a 13 year old with an idea, then heres what you could do for me please. You post down pictures of what you think the charcter would look like. I will review these pictures and pick which one is best. now for the charcter description. His name is Clint Sean Leorricone ( yes i am a james bond freak and the good the bad and the ugly freak). he was an ordinary kids that one day came across a strange metal object. it looked like a metallic spine with four pointed edges down it. he picked it up but it slide up his arm up to his back. it the spiked into his spine, but the weirdness doesn't stop there. it allows him to conjure up any type of gun he wants, sort of like a hammerspace in real life, because the spine molds on his back shapes to what he thinks. the spine is retractable. he then finds out that there is more object like his that can turn into any weapons and tries to find the owners to help get the metal spine off. he also uses it to fight villians, not over the top villians like Doc ock but western themed sometimes, the magic holders, and crooks. when he is fighting these evil doers. he switches into http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/fa/ClintEastwood.JPGsomething like this ( once a again TGTBATU) freak). his weapons of choice is http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup/image_composition_and_techniques/isolated_images/isolated_on_white/166418_clint_eastwood_s_gun_357_magnum.php?id=166418 a 357 magnum, which he usually draws two. he has blonde hair, blue eyes, tall for a grade 9, sort of big feet, medium ears, skinny, medium nose, and large hands. by the way, I would be pleased if you drew this comic in a comedy styled way but it would have serious moments, sort of like el goonish shive, but you can draw however you want. Also i tried doing an idea on another website and was asked to pay them, so i don't want to pay anyone for help, so sorry. so if you posy your pictures of how he should be drawn in hero and civilian attire, please and thank you.

Sincerely,
Kevin Campanella

CHARACTERS

I now have more characters, and most of them have the weapons that country excels at, so please don't be offended.
We now Clint has guns for North America, so now we go to South America, the only girl of them, Cala Curtana, she has a metal spine of infinite swords. she has caught the attention of clint and clint has a crush on her, but she doesn't return the feelings, she would rather be with our next character, The man form down under, and the only one not having a weapon depicting his country, Lewie Orange, the chivalrist. he can spray out any Chemical agent known to man, which is iroic that he is a Gentleman, because, in other terms, he can pass "gas". (get you laughs out now). We then Have the Russian twins, Yuri and Anya Stalnenko. this twins our inseperable and thats what got them their own weapon. they were holding hands at a young age, when the found the metal object. they both touched it at the same time, causing it to split, giving them each a main part of the weapon. Yuri Got the bow part, while Anya got the Arrows. for Africa, our own little guys, Belay Aroh�¡. now here where people might think im stereotyping here. he can uses spears. he can pull out any pole he wants, be it an Arbir, a Ji or a Vel. now for our last character, our own comic relief from europe, our italian stallion! Cal Ringo Granata! he explodes onto the scene with... you guessed it, EXPLOSIVES! he can pull out any explosive known to man, which even lets him self destruct without harm. he can probably even pull out a SLAM, but the only problme is, He is a complete IDIOT! kay think about this, pinky with a nuke, then times that by ten! I'm sorry to say but Europe is screwed. so that is it for now. now read this and try to say its not interesting!

Re: Writers & Artist looking for writers or artists

Yup, another UK writer looking for an artist. Basically developing a story and want an artist to collaborate with. Basic premise is go anywhere, do anything gun for hire and his adventures in the criminal underworld which start when he's offered a job he can't refuse. The character himself was part of a hilariously (rubbish) photo comic me and some university friends did years ago and alls thats left are some concept wallpapers of the main character.

Anyway, if you're interested and up for some collaborating fun, e-mail me @ pudduh@gmail.com

Writer / Artist looking for artists / writers

guiltyvictim's picture

Hi potential future collaborators. I'm primary a dreamer who's aspiring to be a good storyteller one day. I'm 27 and is based in UK.

Visual art and creative writing has been my two main passions in life, and I want to pursue it as a career.

Being as both art AND stories are of such significance to me, I've naturally developed my stories in a very visual approach, and I aim to tackle them in visual formats - thus why I'm here. I believe webcomics is a good medium for beginners like myself to gain experience both in the craft AND in the collaboration process, which will be vital for my career prospects.

So, I'm looking for collaborators to tackle a short webcomic to begin with, and perhaps more in the future depending on the experience. I have dozens of stories dying to get out of my head. My stories primarily focus on character relationships revolving around an overall unique (I'd hope) story concept, often of a supernatural circumstance placed in an otherwise realistic world.

My stories also generally experiment with 3 main elements - non-linear timeline, distortion of memories and multiple perspectives of same events.

While these elements might not all exist in a single story, one or more of the 3 generally plays a large role in the concepts of my stories.

Experience wise, I have to admit that I have had no previous "finished" work to speak of, but I have been studying the craft of storytelling for some 5 years now, and generally rather analytical / critical of films and certain webcomics. I feel confident that I have some good idea of how to tell a story well, the question is whether I can pull it off really.

So enough about me, what am I looking for?

I'm looking for collaborators, not just an artist. I want to collaborate with fellow writers who're interested in bouncing ideas around, to critique, amend and co-create worlds and stories together.

I'm looking for self motivated artists with their own voice and vision, who wants to digest a story idea and experiment with visual concepts, rather than just drawing what they're asked. Essentially, I'm not looking for someone to draw the comic, but an artist to convert ideas into visuals.

If you feel that you fit the bill in any way, or simply someone who's not afraid to trying to something new and exciting, please drop me an email at guiltyvictim@gmail.com and we can discuss where to go.

Re: Writers & Artist looking for writers or artists

I forgot to mention I have well over 80 finished pages and basic ideas for 0-10 chapters.

I am very open to suggestions to and feedback.

Thanks!

looking for Artists AND writers

jhorsley3's picture

I like this idea so here I am putting in my bits.

I run a webcomic and I like to have guest artists and writers come in and do their thing. the guest writers strips I draw and the guest artist strips I write (that way I'm still doing something for the strip)

I'm currently looking for both writers and artist who want to do 1-3 strips story arcs for the comic. You can do more if you want, but generally the people I have had to guest strips do 1-3.

Also, If anyone needs a writer or an artist for something, I am available. You can see samples of my work at http://jhorsley3.com/art.php I've done some work for the band Nerf Herder, if youve ever heard of them.

you can email me at j@jhorsley3.com

Re: VISIONARY SCITECH STORY NEEDS INTUITIVE ARTIST

PUT YOUR NAME TO A FUTURE CLASSIC!


OUR STORY HAS ALL THE HALLMARKS OF A CULT SERIES

and is adapatable to mass market filming. An ongoing saga about humanoids in different dimensions on a Quest to save the continuum.

Interestingly, the solutions are in themselves puzzles, the characters complex, the story has depth, resolution and lots of sci fi/horror/ and breadth of life.

Its predictive, its powerful, its moral, it eats morality, and it must be out there in a portal near you....S O O N.

But seriously folks! We are looking at publishing sections through various media, inet comix 1st. Lots of ideas - we need a master artist!

We envisage a multi media presentation with a STAND ALONE COMPLEX type feel - but much more depth and relevance.

And the Matrix?
Childsplay compared to what we have to offer.

Will agree rights and commisions with co-workers - since we want to take it to film and more....we believe it's strongly marketable - but more importantly - its a story that has to be told.

Writer of All Genres Looking for Artist

DietJutsu's picture

Well, as if there aren't enough of these comments floating around...

Hello, I'm a writer seraching for an artist whom could draw out my stories in manga style. I sprout ideas from my head like weeds in a garden, and come out with at least two per week. [Unless I'm having a bad week.] I write in all genres, from Shojo to Shonen to Morbid, and have an idea for just about all of it. I love to develop well rounded characters as well as writing indirectly. [Questions on what I mean? Just e-mail me.] I always think about my stories coming out onto paper, drawn and ready for others to see the action with their eyes as well as with their mind but, sadly, I can't draw. [Duh, right?] So I would very much like to team up with someone to make a manga all can enjoy. If you're interested or have questions or just want to see some of my ideas, please e-mail me at DietJutsu@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time!

I live in a suburb right outside of Chicago. I am putting together my "book" for Advertising and I need an illustrator/designer to put together my work. I am looking for someone in a similar situation who is trying to make a name for themself.

I have a meeting with an old friend who is the Creative Director at Element 79 in late November and I need some images/campaigns to be completed. I have no problem showing off your work in an attempt to get you noticed as well. Pay will be discussed if you already have a job and are in freelance. If you are in freelance I will tell you that I am not expecting some amazing artist because I can't afford it. However, if you want to do a solid job at a reasonable price I am not going to shoot you down.

Comic Exec looking for Artists

My name is Nathan, but you can call me Needlz.

I am currently starting a comicbook company based in Carson City NV and am looking for artists interested in helping to originate the company. I'm a writer, and designer, of several titles and need motivated artists who are dedicated and available for nearly constant brainstorming. The work is also very simple, the characters are already designed in detailed descriptions, the world and scenery is already designed with detailed descriptions, and the layouts are already done. All you have to do is draw what you are given. This is a chance to start with a new company at the top, but it is a job.

Being as the company is new, artists who have their own storylines and images are welcome to contact me to discuss creating their titles under the comic's label.

The art will be deadlined, but the position is UNPAID until the product is complete. The best way to explain this is, if you were writing, designing, and drawing your own comic you wouldn't get paid until the comic was complete and sold. You wouldn't buy the idea of a couch, or the promise of a TV, you buy a completed item.

I am willing to pay for copyrights, printing, and distribution of these products and will only charge for the use of my label.

Re: Writers & Artist looking for writers or artists

We are looking for an artist for work on a graphic novel series. We have stories to keep it running for years to come. Great concepts- Darker, Manga style in character art.

Shoujo Ai Writer in search of Possible Artist

I don't really know how to post in these places as of yet, but I'm learning. Technically, this is my first official post in this site, so please forgive me if I do anything wrong.

Anyway, I'm an eighteen year old writer trying to find an amatuer artist for a manga book or series. While others say that they might have great ideas, I leave my ideas up to the opinion of others. Fact is, I want to put out a manga/graphic novel with the idea of yuri behind it. To those who don't know, yuri is the Japanese word for lesbian content in things like anime, manga, books, etc. If you are homophobic, well... I suppose you wouldn't answer me, would you?

In all aspects, as of this moment, I do not have a written script or even a written story for an artist to work off from. My hopes are that I can have one-on-one conversations (even if they are mainly over IM or phone) with someone and that we can bouce ideas back and forth and possibly create something together. I'm not the cold sort where I grunt and give out a script and say, "you draw, me done".

I guess that it's a lot to ask from someone, but I'm still ever hopeful. If someone is interested, please contact me at one (or both) of two places:

AOL: orokidthewriter@aol.com

Yahoo!: orokidthewriter@yahoo.com

Other than those, I don't have much of anything else. By the time someone contacts me, I might have a storyline threaded out on paper instead of my head. Thanks for looking at this, and I greatly appriciate your patience.

Re: Writers & Artist looking for writers or artists

I have written a story, which I hope to be turned into a manga, but first I need an artist. I have a 3 1/2 chapters done, but that is just from what I wrote as a story. Then I started doing an outline, which is basically what would be in the panels of the manga. So I need an artist who will draw for me. I have character ideas already, but I also will need someone who can be creative on the parts that I don't already have a specific idea for. I plan on sending in the first chapter of the manga to some publishers to try and get it published, so I need someone that will be ready to do more than just the first chapter, just in case it gets published.
