Topic: Serious Partner Wanted for Webcomic
Alright guys, I’ll cut to the chase. As some of you may know, I’ve been sketching intensely for quite a while now. I’ve really learned to enjoy drawing. Late last year I started off a web-comic that was pretty pathetic, and closed it after 20 weeks. However, I have not given up on my dream of making a comic, although my perspectives on a few things have changed. Frankly, the decisive factor in ending my last comic was that I suck at writing. I just don’t have the skill to make things work out, currently. I like the art side of the equation a lot more. I’ve seen many comics that work with partners, and know it can be done. Essentially, I’d like someone who really loves to write, and can write well, to work with me on a joint venture. You would design a story and dialogue, I would draw it. The comic would just be a small thing, I don’t plan to take it large scale or anything. Mostly, it would just be for fun- I could work on my art, you could work on your writing; we both win. Of course, our spheres wouldn’t be quite so cookie cutter; I’m looking for a partner. We would work together throughout the development of the comic, sharing samples and cluing each other into what we are doing so the whole thing goes cohesively, and we can help each other improve.
Now, before you enter, you should know I largely draw anthropomorphic animals. It’s just the style I like, this wouldn’t be a “furry” comic, persay, so don’t worry about that, I’m not looking for any of the regular plot conventions of that style. For some examples of my art, look here (http://www.majhost.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=219685). I would be fine with my partner critiquing my artwork, I openly welcome it actually. If we can be honest with each other, that’s a major hurdle of working in a unit passed. However, if you simply don’t like the aspect of talking animals, sorry, that’s just something I like to draw.
As far as the writing goes, I’m pretty loose on what I’d want to see; I want you to have as much freedom as you feel you need. My only stipulation would be that I’d really like this to be focused; something other than gag-a-day, almost a graphic novel format. I’m cool with humor though, don’t get me wrong. I’d just like something with a bit of substance as well. I’d really like a meaning, or even just a general emotion to be imparted.
Well… I guess that’s about everything. I’m sure I’ve been too vague in a few spots, so feel free to ask me about specifics in this thread. I’m eager to work and hope there is someone else who shares my enthusiasm. It would be “work” (in the best sense of the word ), and would take commitment, but I’m sure it will be great fun. PM me if you are really interested. If possible, I’d like samples of some of your work. Remember, only consider this if you really want to make a comic- that’s the big thing. If you’ve had an idea or a script that you’ve been wanting to see on print but never thought you could do it alone, this is your chance.
Thanks for reading this gigantic post. I think this will be amazing, and hope to find someone as pumped as I am!
