Looking For A Colorist

Postby capjr » Wed Jul 10, 2013 9:49 pm

Looking for a colorist for a project that I am writing. Most of the pages have been inked at this point and we have a serious plan in place to push this project to be published. And yes, you will be paid for your time and work. If interested, please inbox me and let me know. Include an email and any questions so that I can communicate with you directly.

It would be a good idea to post one or two pages of line art so that potential candidates can take a look before applying.

I was thinking that if someone was interested they would pm me and then I would give them a rundown as well as request a sample prior me sending them a page for a "trial run"if you will. Just throwing a page up doesn't seem like a good idea to me.


Does anyone agree or disagree with me? If so, why?

Putting up a sample page is actually more for your benefit than theirs. If the art is complex, it will help weed out under-qualified people.

Whenever I make a post looking for help, I give more info right away such as a sample image, the production time-frame involved, number of pages, and pay range. This makes it a lot easier to find someone, I feel. It also shows that you are willing to take that little extra step and take the process more seriously and professionally. No offense.

Also, if you want people to color a sample page as part of the process, please be willing to pay at least a modest fee. It not only shows them that you respect their time and efforts, but it also shows that you are not just gathering up a bunch of different colorists to color all the different pages of the book for free (some really sick people do in fact do this).

Great feed back. Never looked at it from the perspective. And no offense is taken. Completely understand that frame of thought.

Well, just to give a little... here's page 1...

Thanks to everyone that at least took a look. We now have a colorist for the project. I'll create a thread later with updates if anyone is interested. Maybe a blog?
