I am an artist who is currently looking to pay someone to write a story idea I have for a comic. Some things that I will or might require help with are script writing, story development, character design (visual, personality, backstories) and basically anything else writer-related. I'd like it to be a team effort, but I'm paying you. I want to be able to brainstorm ideas and be able to be honest about what I like or don't like as much, and I appreciate the same in return. I need the person that I'm working with to be okay with the fact that I have to work at my own pace. I'd prefer it if we can get along
I don't bite.
My art style is manga inspired. Actually I had quit drawing for a few years due to personal reasons and I'm just now getting back into it. As a result I don't have anything super recent to show you, but I can certainly send over some samples from just before I quit if you're seriously interested. I don't think my style has really changed.
I don't want to reveal too much here, and it's definitely still a work in progress, but basically the story I want to do is a BL in which the two main characters are a serial killer and a vampire. Not the teeny-bopper morally correct Twilight kind of vampire, but the kind meant for adults. Dark. Creepy. Elegant. Alluring. Blood thirsty. I'm not really sure what genre I'd call it. Maybe drama, romance, horror (depending what you call horror). It takes place in modern day. Again, if you're seriously interested I can tell you more. I'm very open to ideas for the story and how to make it better and all of that.Important:
-I really like unexpected but realistic plot twists! If you can pull those off, you'll win my heart forever!
-I need you to know the difference between what is cliche and what is good.
-Please try to be reasonable and I will do the same.
-I like good grammar and spelling
-We'll need to be able to communicate not just in e-mails, but in instant messaging or something as well.
-The ability to constructively critisize my art is a plus, but not required.
-I'd prefer it if you're over 18. For several reasons.
-if there's anything else, I'll add it in an edit.
Please note that I am mostly doing this comic for myself, but if for some reason it's super successful I'd be happy to split any profits 50/50.
Also I SUCK at words, so I apologize if this whole thing is jumbled and hard to understand.
So please let me know if you're interested! I'd like to see samples of what you can do before I make a decision. We can discuss payment and amount in private. I really hope this all didn't come off as ridiculous...
