For purposes of exercising better editing control, I'm posting the details of my recent artist job offer here...EDIT:
To keep people in the know, I'm looking through every applicant first and making a list of those whom I feel would work well and those who might work. When I feel like we'll have someone within the list for certain (which should be soon, though I'm going to continue taking applicants for two more weeks and thus won't have a decision until March 9th at the earliest), I will be replying to everyone who applied, letting them know what's going on. So if you're waiting for me to reply, I promise you I will. I just want to look over everyone and close things off first.Job Details
Seeking a manga-styled artist for a 44 page shounen action/fantasy comic. All work will be done under a work-for-hire contract, with rights to attribution retained by the artist. Details of the story and what will be drawn will only be shared with the hired artist. The timeline for this project is to complete it within 11 weeks from when it begins (I’m hoping to arrange things so that it’s done before mid May).
If this comic is successful, it’ll be extended to do more than just 44 pages. If extended, you will NOT
be obligated to keep working. A new contract with a more comfortable timeline will be written up for the extension.
All payments will be made over Paypal. If you don’t have Paypal, I apologize in advance.
For this comic any applicants who charge $70 per page or more will not be looked at. I apologize for this. This is not me being one of those people who undervalues artwork. I’d love to be able to pay at least $100 per page. I simply don’t have the money to afford that on what is effectively an untested story in terms of marketing. I hope people understand.
To apply, please either comment below or send me a note. Please include direct links to your work samples (Please don’t link me to your gallery or to a tumblr front page or whatnot. Unless you are linking me to a folder that ONLY contains your samples, I will not consider applicants who do this. This is a simple instruction for how apply). Please ensure your samples include manga-style sequential art (I can't tell how well you handle sequential art if you send me illustrations, and I can't tell what your manga style looks like if you send me American-style sequential art. Having both in a single sample solves both issues) In your application, also include your rate on a per page basis.About Myself
I'm an independent writer based out of Toronto, Canada. I'm the creator of the online manga Snowbound (See below for link). I've been active on deviantART for over 10 years now and have been working with artists on paid work for at least half of that time. People I've worked with have included Mayshing, Feohria, Finni and Hedrick-CS (Tags are not included so as to not disturb the artists. However, you can find the work they've done for me at the top of my Featured gallery). I have strict quality control for paid projects and, as such, I expect such quality to be maintained. However, I'm also very laid back and do my best to avoid edits as I know how time consuming they can be.
