Soon I am going to be looking for an artist for a epic fantasy comic, mangish style, but I am wondering how much time I should be looking to give the artist to complete the assignment.
I'm looking for digital (or good pencil & inked) B&W pages with a Full Colour Cover (Front & Back).
Example: For my current project, my artist (friend) is producing a comic a week, but he also has another job.
I know this depends on a lot of factors (speed of artist, complexity, etc.) but I am looking for a ballpark figure. I'm not trying to rush the artist, but I have to plan around this time allotment.
What should the # of days per page time should I give?
Thanks for your responses,
