when I write I use words but when I draw I use a pictorial representation of those words. Sorry, I took that question way too literally...

Seriously, if I write out a story ahead of time it will be close to what I wrote, but never exact. Sometimes the words I wrote don't seem to have the right impact with the picture I just drew so I will change them. Or I may think of a better way to phrase something.

No it's absolutely impossible! All these people who say they have done this abomination are lairs!
Oh wait a second, you don't mean an actual living breathing mouse do you?...In that case, sure why not.

Travis:If a man left your friend for another woman, what type of fish would he be?

or what words of encouragement would you give your friend?


Answer 1: The type of fish that you drop off in the middle of the ocean.
Answer 2: I would then tell him It's probably for the best because I always felt there was something fishy about that girl.

I think you should do it, or at least look for freelance jobs to bid on. I do freelance artwork part time: the pay sucks, I have to draw stuff I don't want to or hate to draw, You have to meet dead lines, the client can be a pain and may wants changes (which they hardly ever pay for.) I personally don't care if they keep the rights to the character I create for them; and I really don't care if they stop the project in mid production because it's not my story; well unless I send in a completed comic I already made. Sometimes I like it when they quit a project; it gives me a break or the client was a jerk and I was happy he gave it up (that's usually the case.)

The reason I do it; 1. The number one reason: To get better and faster at drawing comics. When a client expects you to do work you can't brush it off, well I guess you can if you don't mind getting a bad rap or getting fired. 2. It helps you learn how to deal with client diplomatically. 3. When you start out (like me) you do get a little extra money, but besides getting paid it gives you the incentive and confidence to continue creating comics; you can also find out if you are good enough because if you are not you won't keep getting paid. Another thing it will give you a chance to see if you would like to do something like comics for a job.

Using the g-pen in clip art studio paint because Photoshop pens suck(or possibly I don't have the skill to set them up correctly, but I am not willing to admit to that.) using 3-D models and photo references; using complicated pen strokes with lots of detail. Actually there are a lot of techniques I could use but they take too long and usually don't get the attention I want probably due to the fact I have not reached a level that they can be appreciated so I usually go the most efficient route. (run on sentence alert!!!)

Oh I just remembered a technique I started using. take a photo with a background, such as the sky, then first use poster edges to change the image both drastically and slightly; I knew about this filter for a long time, but to me, using poster edges alone looked fake, Because it's just so obvious that it was easily and artificially created by the software. But if you combine it with other effects such as blur you can get some nice looking visuals.

I sent the artwork for all the artist who applied. I'll let you know what she says.
Good luck.

Note: So if you are not picked don't let it bum you out,because everyone get's turned down one time or another.
For example: The person who is hiring to this comic turned me down the first time I applied to work for her; but, I finally persuaded her to give me a shot and I have been doing work for her for about 2 years and she has nothing but good things to say about me. Don't know if that helps, but that's my 2 cents.

Proxy170: That's kind of strange that you are the one withdrawing because she asked if you could color.
But I will take you off the list.

What are your names? And can you all do color comics? black and white will not work. (obviously the comics that are in color need not answer this question.) And you might want to show me a link to your best work instead of me taking you last page as an example.

Sovember:That sounds fun and manageable, so a 3 page one shot? I’d be interested. Dunno if my style is what she’s looking for but if so let me know :)


Good. If It is okay with you I will take a snapshot of your work on your web page and pass it on to her to see what she thinks.

Merged Doublepost:

Proxy170:What's her timeline on the three pages? Do you have a script?

I'm looking to experiment with coloring in a comic (you can see some of my color work on the "characters" part of my page) and a short one would be a good opportunity. I don't take commissions though, so I wouldn't want to be paid, BUT I would want a flexible timeline.

Obviously, if someone here ends up interested and wants to get paid, I'd prefer she go with them instead to support artists who want/need the pay.


I am not really sure what her deadline she said she needed it quick but I usually do 3 pages a month.

there is no script you have to take a three page story she gives you which you will have to turn into a script yourself and send it back to her for her approval. that's probably the worst part of doing the comic.

I can take a snapshot of some of your work and send it to her and see what she says.

Quick this spot may not be open for long!!!

I am currently working for someone who has me do 3 pages of a comic each month; she pays me $50.00 per page (not really sure how much she will pay you, but I assume it will be the same.) She asked me if I knew anyone who could do a "one-time" 3 page an anime comic; I told her I would ask around, so here I am. If you are interested let me know. I would do it, but I don't want to do anime.

below is a page showing the kind of style she wants. click on the words "Artist needed" to view page.

they both look f###ing amazing. use one cover for the first issue and the second for the second issue. I see absolutely nothing wrong with either covers. we all pale in comparison to your abilities and we should be asking your advice on how to do covers, not the other way around.

Exactly. that proves the earth is flat and the South pole does not exist.

I assume you are doing this comic just for fun. If you have difficulty doing if for fun try doing a comic for someone else. I have done freelanced jobs on comic that I found boring; that's when I actually want to procrastinate.

A lot of times I feel like procrastinating because, even though I am always able to draw the page, I feel that I may not be able to do it, or I will mess it up and waste a lot of time working on it. But, once I start I am always able to complete it so I use that to start on the next page.

Another thing that makes me procrastinate is the thinking, "is this comic worth doing?" then I realize that it doesn't matter. the more I draw the better and faster I get, so even if the comic sucks I am getting better at my craft so when the time comes that I create something worth while I will have the skills to help make it even better.
