To all artists looking for collaborations!

Hello everyone! So i figured instead of posting on the forum (it doesn't seem that active, anyways), i should just make a compilation of sorts, of some of the manga ideas I'd like to realize here on MangaMagazine, and who knows, maybe someone will reply! So yes, please read all of the list and if you see anything you'd like to collaborate with me on, and consider yourself a good artist, do reply ^_^ So here they are, short descriptions of the ideas. If you have any questions or wish to know more about any of them, do ask!
1. Haki nai bī-dama! 杷木ないビー玉 / Marbles of Will!
This is something very recent; an idea that came to me today, in fact! Wouldn't it be awesome to have a shounen manga alike Beyblade, but with MARBLES?! So this one-shot would be exactly that - an over-the-top, shounenrific take on the game of marbles! With interesting characters and an over-the-top battle!
2. Shūryōgo 終了後 / After The End
This one-shot is pretty simple, it's about a boy and a girl trying to survive after the zombie apocalypse. The zombies are gone mostly, but so is humanity in most people. The world is in ruins, total anarchy and dismay! Will our young heroes survive in the environment where people act worse than zombies?
Originally this was a long-haul story, but i figure i ought to try it out as a one-shot first. It's set in a futuristic domed city, and centered around the illegal races done by people from all around the city, wearing the so-called "glades" - hi-tech shoes that have a zero-gravity bubble underneath them which causes them to hover above any surface, and when pushed down, the bubble pushes back and propells the user (kind of like when you try to push a ball underwater). So the one-shot would be focused on the whole deal, kind of a chunk of the cake, and will deliver everything you might expect from the whole story - the action, the partying (and yes, Speedsters do love to party!), the eccentric and quirky characters and of course comedy, tension and drama!
4. Channel 666
This is actually a play i wrote originally in Macedonian. Wrote it last year. It's about an ordinary man who becomes the owner of a cursed TV station inside a cursed building build on cursed burial grounds! The TV Station is called Channel 666, and it is filled with all kinds of weird and supernatural characters. Namely, the accountant is a vampire, the staff manager is a mad scientist, the intern is literally batshit crazy, the bartender is The Grim Reaper...and lot's more!!! It's a fish-out-of-water kind of story, about the new owner trying to adapt to the new environment and all the weird things that happen inside the station.
5. SUPER ULTRA MEGA COMBO OFFER - Illustrating my Short Stories
So other than those 4 one-shots, i'd like to see some of my better short stories illustrated or turned into a one-shot manga. HOWEVER, do keep in mind I will rewrite the stories and the final product will be much better than what you're about to read. Here are my picks (Click on the link to read em. And i recommend reading em all :D) :
1. Project CMPRS
CMPRS (read as Compress) - a manga set in a city on the moon, where the military cooperates with different schools in order to test out new technology and is very public about their research. One such group of students is involved in Project CMPRS – a new mech suit that has all the power of a mech compressed into a human-sized robotic suit (think of it as Mech meets Iron-man meets henshin heroes). Best part? The pilot still gets to operate weaponry that is sized up for other mechs. Basically, all the coolness of mechs made portable while still keeping the oversized BFWeaponry. That’s the core of the idea, anyways. Lots more going on, politics, city’s structure and citizens rioting, quite complex actually. But at the core it’s about human-sized mechs swinging building-sized weapons! You can read the script for chapter 1 here - http://www.mangamagazine.net/blogs/Project-CMPRS--...apter-1-Script/detail-page/618
2. Sky PUNK
This one is actually a book i'm writing, but i'd love to see it in manga format or graphic novel format. In short, it's set in a steampunk world of floating islands where magic exists and there, a young blacksmith ends up by a twist of fate on an unknown ship with a ragtag bunch of misfits, and goes on an adventure, evading the law, causing trouble and discovering treasures and mysteries! Sounds familiar? Yes, the premise AND a few of the characters are similar to Race!On! but i assure you the story is completely different! You can read it in my gallery on dA.
So there you have it folks. Hope at least you enjoyed the read! And feel free to fave, comment, share and tell other artists about this ^_^
