This is my first project on the Freelancer platform as I am just about trying it out. I am seeking an illustrator for a comic book. The story is ready. Most of the script is in place. This comic has a female lead and protagonist.
What will the illustrator do?
- Listen to the story teller as the story teller briefly describes the story.
- Read the dialogues as written by the protagonist and imagine the emotion of the lead / setting of the story and make illustrations accordingly where the protagonist sometimes speaks out the dialogues and sometimes writes them out.
Length of comic book -- 75-100 pages -- can go more as story progresses.
The illustrator will need to get on [Removed by [url removed, login to view] Admin] discussion / feedback, and so on during the initial stages of the project.
