Comic Book Illustrator

Open job

Writer seeking a highly detailed digital comic book artist in the Northern Virginia area for a potentially long-term commitment and joint venture partnership for a comic book series planned for submission to Image Comics for consideration of publication.

Artistic skills should be tailored towards fantasy / adventure / steampunk, with the ability to draw characters of all ages, shapes, sizes and ethnicity, as well as, vehicles and structures. The appropriate candidate will be responsible for the full completion of each page, layout, pencils, inking, coloring (if applicable) and lettering. Artist must be efficient enough to ultimately be able to turn over a minimum of one fully completed page per day.

Candidate must have, and be efficient with, a digital drawing software and hardware which supports lossless quality PDF files. Drawing software must also support and have industry standard comic book layouts for use. Support of ePub, CBR and CBZ file formats are a plus, but not required at this time.

Only those who can and will dedicate a high level of commitment to a long-term project and potential life changing opportunity should apply. Your submission portfolio should include three (3) fully completed comic book pages which show detailed and consistent characters, vehicles and backgrounds from multiple angles, poses and perspectives, as well as, display a cohesive ability to tell a story from panel to panel.

Additionally, your submission should include two (2) steampunk style vehicles of your own design (one air based and one land based) and four (4) characters in this same fashion – one (1) male adult, one (1) male child, one (1) female adult and one (1) female child. Be as detailed as possible to showcase your fullest abilities.

Please include your first and last name, e-mail address and phone number on each submitted page.

If selected for this project, candidate not only agrees to provide the necessary submittals for the initial submission process to Image Comics, but also to be the artist on the entire project if / when selected for publication. Because this opportunity is currently for the initial submission package, no fees will be paid up front. The objective is to find a creative partner and collaborator who is interest in pursuing this project through to fruition and completion. In the event of publication, the artist would receive a 40% split of royalties received per issue, after all publication and associated fees are collected and paid. Artist will be required to sign a contract, so all interested persons must be over the age of eighteen (18).

Please inquire for further details.
