Attention Talented Artists: You must know superhero comics. Poses, action, sequential storytelling, drama, facial expressions, exaggeration and anatomy. The art of creating something original means to step outside of the norm and rethink how visuals are represented. Rethink design, rethink your mind. We're looking to break the mold and we want to work with people that are willing to experiment and create something amazing. Having said that, we do have preferences on styles that we love from artists that have been published. We don't mind your style being inspired by someone else as long as it has a spin on it. If you're flexible with how pencils/inks are done, that is an added benefit. We're looking for an individual or art team to illustrate a graphic novel of approx 48 pages and a children's book/comic that is wild and fantastical which requires a fair amount of detail. Graphic Novel: Looking for full color but will consider black and white. It's not a superhero story as what you're accustomed to, but there are super powered beings in the story. It can be dark and poetic, broody, somewhat fun (It's mostly a drama), and epic in scope. Sci-fi and superhero fantasy are the genres, but not in the typical sense. If you like Silver Surfer or anything cosmic that takes place mostly on earth, than that's a start. We would prefer an artist have some range and not one particular style. Have comic book sensibilities but take the storytelling beyond that. It really helps that you are a fan of superhero comics whether from years ago or current. Being able to discuss the wants and don't wants make it that much more enjoyable. Art we love and wouldn't mind if yours is inspired by these artists are: Jae Lee, Olivier Coipel, Jim Lee, Greg Capullo, Frank Miller, James O'Barr, David Mack, Jock, JH Williams III, Clay Mann, and the list goes on and on. We're leaning toward a style with sharp line work and a heavier inking style, for a slightly darker mood. Colors should have photo real special effects at times, and most colors should be moody. We don't want to lose the beauty of the inks. We can discuss this to find a balance. We're not looking to mimic the colors of Marvel or DC, but some of their books really stand out. Children's Comic/Book: Please provide page rates for pencils, inks, colors, lettering. I would prefer to pay in Canadian dollars (US dollar is not an option due to the currency exchange). All images through various stages will need to be provided in hi res so we can print in standard comic size, oversized hardcover, and for digital publishing. Please have an updated portfolio with your sequential art. If you're an amateur artist that's needing a break, we'll consider your work. Though the story is 275 pages, we can begin in smaller quantities starting with a 48 page contract (more or less). Applicants are welcome from all over the world. Must have good communication skills, ability to understand direction, a positive attitude, ego in check, and ability to stick to a schedule. We've communicated with many artists and some really do not have the right attitude. Simple things like overlooking questions in an email or directions in a script can go wrong. It's really important that you get your communication and professionalism in order. We will consider all skill types as long as you are consistent. We're willing to give the right people a chance. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE PER PROJECT. Thank you, The Comic Book Company

Hello, We are looking for a concept artist to help develop ideas for characters and assets for our space based game. Our characters will be sentient robots that have very slight anthropomorphization. Sort of like WALL•E, but functionally more realistic. Assets will include things like their houses, ships, and other structures. We are looking for someone who can generate ideas based on our input, and quickly produce a variety of sketches and options. As ideas are refined, the drawings can become more detailed and fleshed out. Knowledge of science machine components like satellites and rovers is helpful.

The Talent Solutions team at Upwork is seeking a gifted artist to create raw assets for a fortune 500 company. The client is seeking a few artists to create raw assets. Meaning their take on lace, patterns, decorative borders and hearts. A lot of line work. Not sticking with traditional calligraphic style, but more fresh modern take (I've included portfolio examples) . It’s for Valentines day, but that doesn’t necessarily mean feminine. Even some hand lettering would be good too. This is extremely time sensitive, so all applicants must have a portfolio and samples today, and be available to interview tomorrow. Initial submissions this week.

For an unofficial Comic & Toy Convention I need artwork. The theme will be cartoons and movies of the 80's like: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Knight Rider, Transformers, Spider-man etc. Preferably I would like someone who has affinity with these 80's cartoon, comic & film characters. A portfolio is very welcome. For the first task I need a collage with different characters and some loose items drawn and colored. The budget is not high but the artist / illustrator will be credited on the website and the work will be ongoing until September. This means that we will keep hiring the artist / illustrator during this period for new work. Note that the delivered work will become ours to use for any purpose. Skype contact to discuss ideas and exchange drafts and proper English communication is mandatory.
