View Full Version : Looking for Artist

So I've been writing stories every week for a while now at my blog (http://story-blog.com), and I was looking at one of my posts and I decided that what my blog really needs are pictures. Just simple illustrations really, one per post, to set the mood for the stories. I was hoping that some of the artists here in the playground might be interested in drawing these for me, as my own drawing skills are meager, at best.

Anyways, for those of you who are interested, a description of what I wanted illustrated is spoilered.

EDIT: Actually, what makes more sense is for any prospective artists to just post samples of their work and if I'm interested, I'll just send them a message or contact them here if I want them to draw something.

Interested. Here are some examples of my work if you like the style. PM me if you're interested and make sure to contact me when you need stuff.

Warning: these pics are HUGE.

Some are only sketches.

edit: I made the pics so big that they can be scaled down and some imperfections with them won't be noticed.

Posting interest as well. Best example of my drawing style, would be some fanart-pics I've drawn for this comic Murphy's Law by CoffeeIncluded (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175170) in the Fancomics section. Just check under "Stuff by CWater".
(I recommend reading the comic itself too!:smallsmile:)

If you like my style, just PM me or post here and I'll see if I can get done some sketches of the subject in question. :)

Thanks a lot both of you guys, I really appreciate it. If other people are interested, I'm still taking more submissions. Even if your art style isn't what I'm looking for this week, it might be what I'm looking for in a future date.

Also, @CWater: Do you do anything where you draw the original picture on paper and then color and ink it digitally? Let me know.

Yes, I've done a few. Though I've just started with that, so...:smalltongue: There's one example online, it's in the same thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=175170). Scroll down to post #19. (I'd link directly to it, but I don't know how you do that..)

@CWater: Hmm... Your drawings are great, I really like how you use colored pencil, but they're not what I'm looking for right now. I'll definitely you in mind for later.

Thank you:smallsmile: and it's okay, finding a matching artist for a story is hard:smallwink:

Thanks for being so understanding, CWater. And I really am keeping you in mind for maybe doing something in the future.

Also, in the mean time, I'm still looking for more artists, if anyone wants to help...

Please...? Anyone...?

I reckon I could help you out if you so desire, I just had to wait for the inspiration to get a style-sample ready - My pictures are somewhat comic-y, I'm afraid, but if this is not a problem (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9770095&postcount=1201), I'd be all to happy to provide you with images. :smallsmile:

I'm not sure if you're looking for someone to draw often/every time or just once in a while, but if it's just once in a while, I'd like to help out.

I've got a Giantitp sketchbook here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=173190).

I've got a comic here (http://catseyes.comicgenesis.com/).

Y'all probably have no idea who I am (unless I've become infamous since I left), but I draw some picture from time to time.
Mostly black and white:

And some colour every now and again:

Pardon me (and sorry in advance for the possible thread-jack, Aero), but Ninjamuffin, how often are you available to be doing drawing stuff? Like if I may possibly have an idea for a long-running webcomic, but have little to no art skill, and have been searching online for artists for a good month or two, but never thought to look here on the forums?

:smallbiggrin:?

Definetely not, Ninja!

Wow. I'm really glad to see such a great response.

At this point, I have art in the works for a good part of my buffer, (the stories that I've written but have yet to post.) That means that anyone who has posted and hasn't gotten a PM with a request in it isn't 'rejected,' I've just got more people who are willing to help out and provide illustrations that I have things to illustrate. As I continue writing, I'll keep everyone posted and check the thread for artists periodically for whatever it is I need illustrated next. In the mean time, the first story with illustration is set to run on the twenty sixth of this month, and every story after that should have a picture to run with it as well.

Really, I just want to say thank you to everyone who said they were willing to do some illustrations. I really appreciate it.

-Aerodynamik

P.S. This doesn't mean that applications are closed. Anyone who wants to can still post saying that they want to help

P.P.S. @Worlok: Do you have any other pictures that you could show me? It's really hard to get a feel for the way that you draw with just the one.

Well, assuming the :smallbiggrin: at the end does not, in fact, mean you are joking, I've got practically nothing going on aside from a few of my own side-projects, so I've got plenty of free time for the foreseeable future.

One at least, for the time being. I'm currently experiencing a few graphics-card-related hiccups, so it may take me until Friday or Saturday before being able to provide new content, but until then, I've updated the post linked above.

I know who you are! I was a big fan of your... MST3King of Twilight. Yeah, let's go with that one.

Hmm... I can't see anything new. I can't even see the old picture that used to be there. Could you try again?

Hey there. Hope this clears with you. My old dA. (http://tragenkrieger.deviantart.com)

Coloring has improved. No samples right now. Working to fix.

@Aerodynamik, hope I'm not intruding, especially when my talblet is... offlimits for me right now.

I have a deviantart (http://baveboi.deviantart.com/) that can show a bit of spotlight on my art. Any other samples you can send directly by e-mail (zeracurio@hotmail.com) and even if I don't find myself up to such a task yet, I'd still like to volunteer.
I also work with coloring, only digital tho.

EDIT: You can find me and contact me trhough the Playgrounds and my e-mail adressed there. I'm always online, since I work in front of a computer screen.
