I'm looking for a manga artist for work on a shounen for submission to DC's Zuda contest.
It is a monthly webcomic contest. Competitors receive 500$ for a successful eight 4x3 page submission. The winner of the monthly contest wins a year contract to continue the comic at 250$ a page, one page per week.
I'm looking for an artist who will complete the first eight screens for a total of 320$ (which I can pay as a page rate ($40 per screen)) and who would be willing to work on completing the story should it be successful, splitting profits 50/50 (125$ per screen). Each screen would be divided into two smaller manga sized pages, including one full-sized splash page, and a cover.
The story is about two American boys who are part of a group that fights off alien parasite slugs. I am looking for an artist who is comfortable in an dirty punk style akin to FLCL or Tekkonkinkreet. There are action scenes and giant monsters. Color would be nice but half-tone or two-tone would be acceptable. First chapter script and story arc outline available on request.
I have participated in the contest before and worked with an artist before. My previous entry was The Rejects, which came in fifth that month.
