We are writing a manga-style comic series and are looking for an artist. We have one six page scene to find an artist to work with. If we can find someone to bring our characters to life in the style we're looking for, after these pages we will commission the full 20 page first issue.
Stylistically, we are creating a manga-style comedy inspired by Full Metal Alchemist. In these six pages our main character first discovers she has magical powers. It is important to us that the magical elements are clear to the reader and presented in a unique way. We're not very funny so we need someone who can bring their A-game to making this scene humorous.
In this scene we have two characters: Trina, a 23 year old design student who discovers she has magical powers, and Lexi, her best friend who is studying criminology.
In this scene, Trina and Lexi get home and while Trina is taking a shower she discovers magically conjures a bar of soap then teleports into the living room. After being shocked that Trina has magical powers, the two girls leave the apartment. Specific details on each frame and the exact layout will be provided.
Where we are at:
We have two pages completed but are not completely happy with the style. The teleportation isn't clear, the texture doesn't match the style we were after and the reactions aren't comedic enough. The frame with Trina dropping the soap is probably the closest to what we're looking for but not quite there yet.
We will give our chosen artist as much information and detail as we can but we are looking for someone who is happy to make revisions if the work doesn't match the brief.
We are excited to start working with a talented artist to bring our ideas to life!
