You'd be more likely to find an artist if you give a little more information. For example, are you going to deal with the website and hosting etc? Do you have any examples of your writing? Perhaps an excerpt from your script, so people can see how much detail you put into your scripts (artists like to work in different ways. Some prefer detailed scripts, others more vague.)

Finding an artist is always difficult. There are more people who think they can write or have an idea they think is wonderful than people who think they can draw (that doesn't mean they can write/draw/have a fantastic world-changing idea). The more information you give, the easier it'll be to find an artist.

Still, your idea does sound interesting.

Another thing to think about, is how on earth is someone going to try to illustrate all this stuff. You have some direction there which is good, but the artist is going to have to be like, "which angle does he want all this drawn in." Oh I'll draw it close up, but you wanted it all like 3quarter view, 4 layer shaded... I dunno.


Or he could just be leaving it up to the artist, who is presumably good at visual storytelling. There's nothing wrong with letting the artist get on with setting up shots.

Anyway, the script looks interesting, Scarecrow. You had me up until the katana, anyway. I don't have the time to take on additional projects (not sure I could do an action comic justice, anyway), but good luck finding an artist! This could be pretty good in the right hands.

If I come across someone decent who's looking for a project I'll point them your way. Any contact info?

This.

I considered, at one point, being an artist for someone else's story. In fact, if I HADN'T started my own script-to-comic, about two weeks later a person I know posted a request for an artist on a site that wouldn't normally see that since we have very few good artists and I'd read his story and liked it and would've drawn it.

I wouldn't draw for a writer who honestly thought he knew better than me what angles would work. I'm the ARTIST for a reason and when you start detailing panel layouts and everything, look, it's clear you have an imagination for it and you really would do better to learn to draw yourself... it's hard but worth it.

And honestly, those craptastic webhosting services get you a community that'll read the comic, potentially... good for beginners...

Eh, it's a good pitch. It's not something I'd do but it's a better pitch than most. I'd like to see more of what you're looking for in an artist too, aye. It sounds like a wacky script, anyway.

Good luck finding an artist.

I do think we need a help wanted section.
