Hello there, as you can see, I am mix-o-freak, and this
is the comic I am needing an artist for:
This is the story of the residents of 1287 Oakland Lane,
otherwise known as The Bloodstone Manor, a former
mansion turned into a residential building. The story begins
with Anthony "Tony" Braut being told by his parents that he
needs to get a job and move out. He dropped out of school
his junior year and is now nineteen. He searches through
the local paper's want ads and finally comes across an ad
the piques his interest: "The Bloodstone Housing Tenure is
looking for a caretaker. Pay negotiable. Room on grounds
included in contract. No appointment necessary. Visit 1287
Oakland Lane on Saturdays between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM
for interviews". Tony got the job and is trying to adjust to life
in the manor and the tenants it has. Among those are a
vampire, three aliens, two extra-dimensional beings, a werewolf,
a paranormal investigator, the landlord who is about his age,
a mermaid, several government experiments, a fairy, an elf,
a magician, ghosts, and several oddities. For Tony, life has
gotten a whole weirder.
I have been writing script for this comic for a few years. As it
is now, I believe I have enough script for a thrice a week comic
to run for three years without my writing anything new. I have
been an amateur author for about four years, and have received
a little monetary gain for some of my smaller works, but I have
always wanted to try to get some of my comics published, either
online or, preferably, in print. I do not have the artistic skills to
make my comic become even close to finished, and hence I am
Searching for an artist to draw the comic with/for me. This is a
humor/horror comic primarily. There are several elements and
story arcs that will focus more on different genres, but in general,
this is the genre of the comic.
By the way, as you probably guessed, this is not a guaranteed
paying job. This may be a paying job, depending on if the comic
ever gets far enough along with the artist to create a collection
to sell. If it does it might be sold online @ lulu.com or another
online distributor and the profits will be split 40 % to author (me),
and 60 % to the artist.
The sample below shows why I need a artist better than myself to
help me create the comic. I spent over four and a half hours on
this alone, and I can barely do much better than this even with
That being said, this comic is indeed how I would basically like for
the first comic to look, but as you can see, my art skills are lacking.
If anyone is interested in working on this project, please draw a
better version of this first comic. After I see mine done it better
than it is we can talk about what other things will be in the comic
that will need drawing.
Please either PM me here, email me, or post your version in this
topic here, or PM me on the same forum:

I'm not looking for Picaso or Frank Miller work here. I am,
however, not looking for Shirtguy Dom days either. What I
would like artistically is a balance between detail and simplicity.
Although I like manga, I do not want manga style art to
overwhelm this comic. I would prefer if the artist could color
the comic as well, but I would be willing to try and color their
work if necessary. I can do some color work, but I can't draw
very well. I would prefer to work with an artist whose work
looks like some of the work done by these artists:
Dependant on how much information the artist needs to draw a
comic I will provide more information. As it is, I would like to
find an artist that I can simply send the basics of the script and
character description, but I do have more detailed work if
necessary. For example, here is the script of the above comic:
01: 2 + 2 = ?
Panel 1: Tony is laying on the couch looking at the TV. His head is
on the left side of the couch and his feet are on the right.
His right arm is on his chest and his left is pointing the
remote at the TV. He looks like a freeloading twenty year
old. His father, a businessman, is standing on the left side
of the couch looking down at Tony. He is wearing a nice
shirt and pants, but not his work clothes. His mother, a
florist, is on the right side of the couch and is wearing her
work clothes. His mother speaks and says, “Tony, normally
when a baby bird gets big enough, its mother will push it
out of the nest to teach it how to fly.” Tony does not say
anything, but rather changes the TV channel (changing
channel sound only since the TV screen is facing away from
the viewers). Part of the TV show is heard near the bottom
of the panel. In the bottom near the TV should be the
words and noises on the TV.
Panel 2: The only sounds are the TV channel being changed and the
sound of the TV show. No one has moved.
Panel 3: Tony speaks, “And the point to that was?” His father replies
(should be under Tony’s speech balloon), “Tony, get a job
and move out.” Again, the TV channel is heard and
I've found an artist for that comic, but do have several other
comics that an interested artist might be able to work with me
on. if interested, please pm or email me.
