I am offering a part time gig - payment delivered every 2 weeks. As I wind down other gigs, this will be my focus. I am currently working with an illustrator whom I am very pleased with. I am however looking for someone who can do the same quality work for less money. I have a western series that I have written that I want to adapt for comics. I am looking for something like this:
Here is my concept:
Attached is the script and a song that has inspired. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiYjHu5B6Nc
I require Historical and geographical accuracy
Your art and this story will send the reader back in time to places that do not exist anymore and to a people shaped by events whose faint hands still shape my country and our world even today. This is Ashokan Farewell:
Musically it gives you an idea of the main event that would shape generations in America during the 19th century. So please listen to it for inspiration.
Work Flow: Your portfolio who contain character sketches, thumbnail sketches and comic pages paneled, colored and lettered. If you do not have this in your portfolio, then you may submit a sample of character sketches, thumbnail sketches and comic pages paneled, colored and lettered given the material I provided.
When we come to an agreement of a price and payment, I need to see character sketches and thumbnails of the entire script. Once I agree on the character and thumbnail sketches, then we can move forward with the pages.
Setting: This is what the Texas Hill Country looks: http://www.google.com/search?q=texas+hill+country&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=Q5fnUZQHyIiIAsG5gYgD&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1466&bih=888 http://www.jimandchris.com/weblog/2005/10/texas-and-hill-country.html The Texas Hill County was settled by German Immigrants who were loyal to the Union and Texas fought a civil war within Texas for control of this territory. Texas Hill Country still has a vibrant culture that still lives today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1b1YVxXFp5M
Do not draw monument valley Northern Arizona and Utah, or Navajo country when the script calls for Texas Hill Country. Much of Texas except West Texas is green and the Texas Hill Country has its own character Let the pictures tell the story and do not caption much unless the script requires it. For Example, caption "Texas, 1882." Character Design the outfit https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.[OBSCURED]192.55571.[OBSCURED]727&type=3
This is who I imagine Henry Moore looks like. He is 43. Henry Moore in 1876 would be about this age. He is a Civl War veteran of the Confederacy. This man in real life is from Mississippi with Scotch-Irish and Cherokee Indian blood. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=[OBSCURED]1&set=t.[OBSCURED]&type=3&theater I have given you lots of reference of what the character designs should be if you look at my Facebook page for Up the Trail. Please stick to that.
This is who I imagine ALISON would look like. The hairstyle is wrong because it is a wig but I see her as a blonde. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=[OBSCURED]041&set=a.[OBSCURED]708.25516.[OBSCURED]727&type=1&theater
Before you submit, I need to know how much you charge for 30 page script. I have 15 of these scripts. Tell me which artists inspire you and why you choose to be an illustrator. I need to see a portfolio. I also decline offers for lack of responsiveness. Thank you
