Michael Buffington Jr.
Thank you for your interest and maybe I'll have some other projects later on for those who were not chosen. Thank You!8)
I am trying to start my own graphic novel and/or a 2D or 3D animated short but I cant draw to save my life so after visiting the site/forum several times I noticed that the people here are some of the best concept artist in the world and I was hoping that some of you would be willing to help me out.
I will pay the first person or persons (no more then 3 separate artists, any art posted after the first 3 artists will not be paid so I hope you read this), $100 for all 3 pictures but only after you sigh a contract which will be made available to all artist/s. Please if you do draw spread your posted pictures out between several weeks so that I don't go poor paying you. I am in no way a professional, I am a college student that has always wanted to get into animation but as of now am out of school and working for a big delivery company. I don’t get paid much otherwise I would be willing to part with more for your hard work. I would like to thank everyone willing to participate in the project and if it ever gets made you will be credited for it. I am sorry I cant have more then 3 artist but as said before I’m not rich.
Now, on to the characters I want designed.
The story takes place in an alternate 1930s; in this alternate 1930s, a mix of steam and electricity runs the technology. (So is a steam/cyber puck like sci-fi story).
The main character is a smuggler who used to be the best pilot in the air force before getting kicked out. (Not sure why yet because the story is not finalized at this point in time.)
He is a rough but hansom 30 to mid 30s year old man who hates the air force. He passes him self off as a delivery man for the rich as to disguise his smuggling jobs.
The main character has a robot who was his co-pilot in the air force this is a military robot that is big and tough looking but not to big as not to fit in the plane he was stolen and reprogrammed by the main character to help him fly on his delivery/smuggling runs. This robot works off of a mix of steam and electricity its eyes change colors depending on its mood and modes and it must have a steam release valve some ware on the head or shoulders.
The third character is a female who is a singer at a club (30s style) she just so happens to be a spy for the bad guys she is a very hot and slender humanoid alien. The main character is in love with her and goes to the club just to see her sing. He talks to her allot but never really lets her know his fillings (at least not until later in the story)
These are the tree main characters of the story there are lots more to come but since the story hasn’t be finished yet I’m not sure of all the characters right now but there will be more added later on.
I also need designs for locations and vehicles and for the 30s style world/cities but all this will come later you may do pictures and designs for this as well but please only post them after you have received money for your character design and ask me first to see if I have the money to pay you.
If no one is willing to participate please at least give me links, websites and/or names of people who would be interested. This is a small project so no big companies.
If you would like to contact me please e-mail me at email@example.com (I get a lot of junk mail so please put “concept art project” as the e-mails title, Thank you.
Some questions, ANSWERED!
()Is that 50-100 per character, or 50-100 for all 3 characters?
()I have changed it to $100 for all 3 character.
()Do you want just exploratory sketches, or a finished, colored, polished concept for each?
()I would prefer a finished and colored character. But if you want you can post non-finished pictures so I can see what direction you are going in.
()Do you have any preferred style, such as "Manga/Anime" or "Like the Starwars art" or anything? Or do you just want what the artist has to offer?
()Any style you wish is fine with me.
Thank you for the time if you read this and I hope to see some great art.
