I have ideas in my head but i cant draw them, so I'm asking for a artist to do the well artwork for a project in my head, you can take as much creative liberty as long as you keep the characters with the generaly same appearance, and can draw in a manga/anime fashion, if your interested or want more details send me a quack, Thanks, Laters.

What's in it for the artist? You either need to pitch your idea better, offer something in exchange for them drawing it, or barter with them to get an artist's help.

But you haven't told anyone what your idea is or what you'd offer them! Unless you do that, you're unlikely to find an artist.

I'm with Rich on this one. I like your forthrightness, Rich!

Leon, you are offering a collaboration opportunity. Are you going to pay the artist? If so, how much?

Or are you willing to barter something in exchange for his/her creative services?

Or are you expecting the artist to invest in the comic for free and expect compensation to be in the form of a certain percentage of monies generated from your property's potential revenues? This is a common approach, albeit frowned upon by top calibre artists who enjoy reaping respectable remuneration for their work.

You may be able to find someone who'll work for free, but you also risk only having an amateur do this and have the artwork look sufferable. If you find an artist of good calibre to work for free, then that artist is obviously well off, doesn't need the money, and has time to kill. THAT'S the gold mine in a search like this.

And it's always good practice to have any arrangement you agree upon with the artist done in writing so that both parties are aware of what they are each getting into from the onset. You don't want a bad name for yourself; your name can be blacklisted in this industry otherwise- It's a global industry, but it's also a small world!

Someone really needs to write a thread that we can sticky about “Are you looking for a writer or artist? Then by all that is holy, read this thread!” that has lots of good advice about what to talk about, how to get people interested, etc…. any takers? :)

Death comes once every thousand years to take any souls he desires for 10 days, how well you survive when the next time he comes is in 2 days??

I'm just giving him some advice that will make it easier for him to find an artist. If I was bothering him, I'd have included some four letter words.
