Looking for Artist/Team
- Apr 8, 2012 3:54 PM
Hi. I'm looking for an artist who draws in a Gangan/Jump dark style (Soul Eater, Full Metal Alchemist, D. Gray-Man), so basically:
- good with backgrounds (see below)
- good with battle scenes
- good with drawing demon/monster themes
- does not overuse screentones
- have fun with characters and angles
- ink drawing a must
If you are good with backgrounds, but do not fulfill the other criteria, or fulfill the other criteria but are not good at backgorunds, please still apply, as a team would also be helpful and preferrable. The project I hope to launch is Dhampir King:
In the distant past, the kingdoms of Hel and Toke (Earth) held a great war. To instigate peace, the Vampire King John Dracula Faustus and the human Princess Alice of Gaul wed, and bore a son, Aleister Alucard Faustus III, the Dhampir King. The young Aleister is bound to his human nature by Seven Chains, of which he has found only three: his Worming Eye (a demonic spell that disintegrates weaker enemies), the Sword of Amaymon (a sword that commands the shadows), and his Human Heart. Retreating to the Manor of Ferr after his father’s murder, Aleister must find the remaining four Chains before Heartshield, a murderous demon cult dedicated to his honor, destroys them to release his full vampirism, and protect his Devil Heart from Count Skelton, a vampire hunter. At Ferr Manor is Schwartz, a viciously protective and loyal as well as powerful phantom who serves as a Faust family butler, Gepetto, a young and dark minded inventor who specializes in the creation of Devil Toys, and Irina Iverwellar, the Iron Maiden, guardian warrior maid of Aleister. Together, and under the leadership of the Horseman War, they are Noire Sorcier, protecting humans from demons until Aleister can gather all seven chains and come to both thrones and bring peace to both worlds.
I am also seeking an editor, because I want to maximize the potential of this project and make sure everything flows, is satisfactory, and is well-paced.
I have a rough-draft of the first chapter prepared. It is, however, written as a one-shot because I want to test the project and, if the one-shot does well, release it as a serial. Please note that this project would take a lot of dedication, but so would all projects that we really want to succeed.
If interested, contact me via Private Message, Profile Comment, or email me at email@example.com. If you are interested in illustrating, here is a list of characters (Noire Sorcier):
Aleister A. Faustus III - Dhampir King/Sword of Amaymon
Irina Iverwellar - Iron Maiden
Gepetto - Demon Puppet-Maker
Pinokio - Demon Puppet
Schwartz - Phantom Butler
Wendy Allardyce - golemcrafter
War - administrator and founder of Noire Sorcier, Horseman of the Apocalypse
Please send a sketch of any character. If looking for inspiration again, take a look at Soul Eater, Full Metal Alchemist, D. Gray Man
