Looking for a Artist for a Mech webcomic. I am going to start a
kickstarter to get it funded I am currently looking for a artist who's
name I can put on the kickstarter. I am asking for examples of past work
(published or not) and if I like what I see I will be asking for a
cover page that I will outline (though designing is mostly up to you)
and let me know if you can or can not do color.
Once I find a artist I will be starting the kickstarter and will be
offering $20 a page as payment if the comic grows and start to bring in
revenue I will increase that accordingly. Will pay for the cover if the
kickstarter is successful and will be paying at the completion of the
issues, roughly 20-30 pages so around 400-600 an issue.
There will be a deadline after the comic starts up probably monthly or
twice a month but at first there is not. Want a good backlog of 5 to 10
issues before i get them published online though that will very by
I have ideas for designs but the design is majority up to you as it
proteins to character, mechs, spaceships, combat armor, so on. But we
will have to agree of course and it is something you will need to draw
it over and over again throughout the series. I can do the wording and
some editing if needed but if it is easier for you to then that is okay
with me. I may have story related needs such as weapons, hair color, and
so on. Look at Titanfall or Gundam if you don't know what a Mech is.
I have been working on the story for the comic for over a year now and i
am excited to start it up. I have put a lot of thought and detail into
it and may involve a co writer in the future but that is for later.
Below is a link to a small portion of what I wrote feel free to give it a read.
To all members of Artist Daily:
If any of you are interested in this offer, do what you want. It's a free country. However, this person is offering $20 a page. It should be noted that $40 a page (for comic book art) was the usual standard back in the 1940s and early 50s.
Also, keep in mind that you will be creating the visuals from scratch. Make sure you maintain ownership of the copyrights. Without a written contract to that effect, you will be doing "work for hire"—with no legal claim to reproduction rights.
i do want to point out that i did state it would only start at 20 a page and i do know there are professionals that do pages for that same price and that i offer to increase that if they comic takes off in the future maybe even provide split in whatever profits the comic starts to make 20 is just the starting pay. I also state that you have the choice of creating the art from scratch or i can give complete design details and that the artist may make that decision.
Of course most of this is up for discussion this is just a base line and we can hammer out details
