I have a few scripts that require artists, here are some samplers to whet your appetites. unless sated there are no preexisting character designs.If you're interested in doing one reply or PM me, whichever works for you. The only thing I ask is that if you take one on and find you're unable to do it for any reason, please let me know so I can try and collar some other poor schmuck into doing it.Open to any art style as long as it can carry the story. The first is a four page script, nearly half of it is here to give you a feel for it.




The Black Vending Machine.Scriptage by Rachel Evil McCallPAGE ONE: One panel. A sidewalk on an urban street at night. In front of a large brick wall is the Vending Machine. It is solid black, and appears to be a beverage vending machine. It has a small LED display on the right side, above a column of buttons. It looms ominously beneath a street light.CAPTION: Nobody knows where it came from.PAGE TWO: Four panel grid.Panel 1: A man walks by the machine.CAPTION: Nobody knows where it will appear.Panel 2: The man stops, intrigued by the machine.Panel 3: The man looks over the buttons.CAPTION: Nobody knows why it exists.Panel 4: We see the buttons, which say “True Love”, “Wealth”, “Success”, “Happiness”, “Enlightenment,” and “Everything.” The LED display above them says “WHAT DO YOU WANT”.


Script two, this is six pages in total.

This one does have a previously used character, the girl from this story here




AFTER episode fourGo Fishby David Tulloch and (your name here)Disclaimer: Like anything I write, the panel breakdowns are just suggestions. If you want to group some panels together so there are multiple speech bubbles, or break them apart so there are more panels with less words, feel free. Layout suggestions are just that. You're the artist, feel free to play with the layout and frames as you wish. Page ONE1/1Connie, the homeless girl from a previous episode, Great Expectation, is standing on the side of a highway, thumb out, hitch-hiking. She has a backpack that looks like it was once a school bag, although not hers. She is returning from the ocean, and has a necklace she has made of a shell on some string around her neck. Cars and pickups go by on the road which is not congested, but still busy. 1/2A pickup pulls over in front of Connie, and she jogs toward it.1/3A large panel with Titles that shows the pickup close up, so we can see the rear bumper/tailgate of the pickup. There's a Christian fish symbol on it, as well as an NRA bumper sticker that read ‘From My Cold Dead Hands’. We can see the open passenger side door, and Connie's legs. The fish symbol on the truck should be nice and obvious, and the titles should be nearby to further draw attention to it. After all, this is after the rapture, so anyone driving a truck with these symbols must be an interesting kind of person.(off) Get in, little lady. (off) Thanks, mister.TITLESAFTEREpisode fiveGo FishPage TWOThe next few pages take place inside the pickup. The man is a heavy-set. His backstory (in case it helps visualize him) is that he was a radio evangelical preacher before the rapture. The fact that he remains gives some indication to his character. The radio is on, quietly at first, in the pickup. 2/1Man: “Where you headed?”Connie: “Austin.”(radio, soft): “… all you're bar-be-que needs under one roof. Bar-be-que Town … ”2/2Man: “I can get you a-ways.”Connie: “Thanks.”(radio, soft): “For the best Bar-be-que around, come down to Bar-be-que Town.”2/3Man: “Nice to have some company. Normally just me and the radio.”(radio, soft): “And you're back with Dr. Marsha. Go ahead caller.”2/4Man: “You from round here?”Connie: “I used to be.”(radio, soft): “Hi, Dr. Marsha. I'm Bob, from Fort Worth … 2/5Man: ”Things change, don't they.“Connie: ”Yeah.“(radio, soft): ”Hi, Bob, what can I help you with today? … "
