Real Project; (Some) Real Money to Help Pitch It ...
This posting is to try and find a colorist. The group I'm working with is turning four novels into graphic novels. The character involved is iconic and has a following in the world at large. More than that I cannot say. We met as a group, me, Tim Vigil, Johnny B. Gerardy, and the author of the books at the Long Beach Comic Con last week. Went EXTREMELY well. The author is going to take this pitch into the 3rd largest comic book publisher himself, and it doesn't get any better than that. Anyway, I need a colorist to do the pitch samples: four concepts and one page of sequential art, all inked.
Anyone who wants to step up and try your color work out, here is the initial character sketch, penciled by Tim Vigil, inked by Johnny B. Gerardy, and now yours to download and work on. This is an open invitation and I will pass anyone's finished piece to the other two artists involved. The one they choose will get the gig -- simple as that.
I have faith that this project will find a home and that it will be a paying gig. The pitch sample pieces will have a price attached, but I need to work that out with the person selected to participate.
More questions, ask me: Shenandoah01 at gmail dot com.
Update(from Rick): I've added my color to this.
