I need a Comic Book Artist whose style is similar to a Marvel/DC style, or even something more gritty preferrably. Required professional looking pencilling for a 50+ page graphic novel, including cover(s). Inking would be a MAJOR PLUS, and digital coloring would be nice and is a plus as well but not necessary. The script is available; However, please note that it is a movie script being converted to a comic. I will provide general page layout sketches to aid with guidance of how to draw the pages for the book itself.
I'm financing the artist/book myself out of my own pocket, so I am on a limited budget. I would prefer to PAY PER PAGE, or for the 100% completed project. I can NOT pay hourly rates, etc. If you're willing to work for less than the posted range, that's fine too.
I will require some kind of charatcter samples, and at least one full page sample; of your previous works. Also, provide a contact website, phone or email. I can be contacted at ballstatic at hotmail.
This is NOT a project that will likely be published, so a percentage of sales CANNOT be a guarantee or part of the offer. This is a PERSONAL PROJECT, but may be used for pitching the movie script in the future and may go into publishing, although I do not currently have any contacts for publishing or filming.
You will not gain or retain any rights to my story, characters or paid/completed works. I will require both digitally scanned high quality copies and the original art on paper (if drawn by hand). Please keep in mind that if this project manages to go somewhere, I will not forget your help, and I would like to have a contact for you in the future.
There is no deadline for the project, so please provide me with a timeline of estimated completion along with your offer. I do not want to speak to agents, or headhunters; I only wish to speak directly to the artist.
***PLEASE MAKE ALL OFFERS FOR THE COMPLETED PROJECT or BY PAGE... NOT BY HOURLY RATES OR DAILY RATES.***
