I'm Robert...A.K.A. Kagaenod...and I have worked on webcomics in the past and hope to start up my old habit. Among other things, I've worked on a comic called Supercosmic http://supercosmic212.blogspot.com/
as well as comics for artificialcomix.com such as Parkbench Dreamer http://www.artificialcomix.com/parkbenchdreamer/Slideshow.htm
and and My Headache http://www.artificialcomix.com/myheadache/Slideshow.htm
I am willing to offer my writing talents to any artist with decent art. Even if said art is not the norm, as long as it can tell a story I am most likely to be satisfied. I can work with both American and Manga style.
If the artist has no ideas for a comic, here's a few of my own.
1. First Earth is a land of ocean and islands, a land populated by winged human-like beings that survive in small tribes and towns. These creatures call themselves the Seconds. There are many stories explaining the name among the Secs, the most popular and well known among them claiming "The beasts came first, and we came second."
The Secs, while in their towns with decent numbers, are safe. However not everyone is satisfied with their place, those eager for advancement, as well as adventures, seek out new islands to populate. However untamed islands can be dangerous places for Secs, places where untold of monsters both of flesh and metal reside. The tales of [working title] First Earth deal mostly with those who adventure into the unknown and return to tell the tale, as well as depictions of life in the towns.
2. Eden is a young girl who, upon finishing her SATs, is shot due to excessive noise afterwards by her proctor. Having lived an average life and not doing enough good deeds to warrant entry into heaven or reincarnation, she is assigned as a guardian angel to some boy just a few years younger to herself. Chaos ensues as Eden deals not only with her bizarre afterlife, but also with the schoolyard troubles of a shy and skinny boy.
3. A young man in a world much like ours, inherits a glass egg from his grandfather, who always told outlandish stories about far off places and worlds hidden beneath our noses. The young man finds one day that the egg has cracked open...revealing a mist that is unseen by others and follows the young man around and even communicates by changing its form and forming simple sentences that only the young man can here. The "cloud" also exhibits the ability to change into living beings and thus be seen. This comic focuses on the day to day as the young man, a young college age student, teaches the "cloud" about everyday life in the modern day.
There, that should give the perspective artist an idea of my abilities and what sort of stories I usually tell. I have many more ideas, but I felt this selection was a good well rounded group of samples. I of course am not above developing other people's ideas as I mentioned at the beginning, but I felt showing my ideas would be helpful. e-mail me at email@example.com
if you're interested. Also, any colorist, letterist, or inker can also apply if they're interested in working with me. Heck, if you're a writer and wouldn't mind co-creating something I'd love to see samples.
I'm eagerly awaiting your responses,
P.S. Note that I CANNOT pay at this time...rather I am looking for artists who are at the moment looking to do a comic for the benefit of getting some comics under their belt or for (Gasp) fun. Any other reason is good as long as you don't ask for money, my cash is tight right now. On the plus side, I work for free as well. I am willing to consider submitting to work to publishers if it reaches a certain length however, most publishers prefer to market books rather than tradition chapters. I plan to post the comic online at drunkduck.com so people can see our comic.
