WANTED: Top Pro Colorist Needed.

Please read all before posting. If you are not a (top professional colorist), do not post here. I'm only interested in the best of the best. Send me a (note) only so I can see samples of your work. You'll mostly be doing pin-up style comic book characters. One character with or without a background. Right now I have one image that is fully colored but done incorrectly and it needs to be fixed. I'm looking for a top pro colorist to correct some problem with this image. I pay through PayPal.

Okay, to make it easier to know and understand what I'm looking for, click on this [link]. Those are (my favorites) in the (Browse Favourites) art gallery from my D.A. page. There's 12 pages to browse through and some of the art style and coloring looks the same -- not all, but some. That is the style of coloring that I'm looking for. Thanks!!!

Here's an idea; why don't you ask the artists from your favprites if they want the job >__>

Already did. Most are too busy working for Marvel, DC, etc.

My point exactly. Think about it, what does that tell you?

You are a typical case of *unrealistic expectations*. How many artists who have worked for DC or Marvel sift through the Deviantart job offers, looking to make a buck on the side? None. I'm sorry buddy, but who do you think you are? What makes you think a Marvel artist would jump at the opportunity to color your drawings? "Oh look, Barneybluepants wants to hire me! Now *that's* something I'll be able to put in my portfolio!" said no one >__>
There are tons of great professional level colorists here, but it is simply unrealistic to limit your search to artists who have worked for DC or Marvel because those people are not looking for work, and frankly buddy, it makes you sound like a douche.

Hmmm, sounds like someone is having a bad day. LOL Actually, I'm on a waiting list for some of my stuff to be colored by at least one top colorist who I'm sure can color circles around you. Now play nice or go home. :)

Although he was kinda rude he is right. Though what worries me more is your response. You want to act professional with someone you're going to hire right? Bad talking other peoples art is not professional in any way and is actually quite childish. Why would any professional want to work with you if you're going around insulting peoples art?

That person started crap with me, and they got crap back. It's as simple as that. No one should take that kind of crap. I can be a very nice and friendly person, but you know what? I just paid a colorist to color one of my B&W images and he totally messed it up, and he got paid too. So I'm a little upset with not being able to find a top pro colorist right now. So please forgive me.

I get plenty of nasty remarks and comments repeatedly on my art. Thats when you have to be the bigger person and ignore it/reply in a professional manner, because it reflects poorly on you. Meanwhile if you reply in a professional manner, it only hurts the person further who is trying to start crap with you. Rather everyone thinks he's a childish idiot than both.

Also I can understand the pain of having something done for you and it didn't turn out, but that is still no reason. Each client/artist is on an individual bases. You can't look at all artist like that just because one let you down. Its the same with us. Sometimes a client tells me he has 100x good references but that means nothing because they are not MINE.

Well good for him, I was never interested in the job from the start anyways. By all means continue to ignore every single person who's commented on your forum post as of now. They only want to give you advice, it's *obviously* not worth listening to right? :)

Instead of being rude, give him the advice and move on. If he doesn't want to take it, it's his loss not yours.

Ok, so first I have to ask, is this the same gig that you posted an ad for about a week ago that only pays $35-$50 per page? If so, then that is not enough for the type of work you seem to be asking for. Secondly, the term "top pro colorist" doesn't really mean a whole lot. Your idea of a top pro colorist is going to be different than someone else. You say you want someone who is working for, or has worked for, a company such as Marvel or DC, but there are still tons of talented colorists out there who do BETTER work than these companies. Just because someone is affiliated with a big company doesn't mean they are right for this gig. Yes, if you can land someone like that it will most likely work out very well, but you don't have to limit yourself to only those "top pro colorists" and disregard everyone else. Finally, and I don't mean any disrespect here, but I think you need to handle some of your response a little more professionally. Frankly, I agree with everything Endless-Ness has said and there are ways for you to disagree with them in a more respectful manner. Good luck in your search.

You might look on conceptart.org if you're looking for the best of the best colorists who are looking for work. You'll have a much higher chance of encountering one there. ;)

Why would someone who is working for DC comics come here for cheap deviant-art work?

If you want someone like that its gonna cost quite a bit, and if you're okay with that as someone else has said, go to Concepatart.org
They have a job section and they are filled with REAL professionals who can do comic work.. and even then, its so slim you would get an actual DC/marvel artists. They worked for dc/marvel for crying out loud! They could get just about any comic related job they wanted.

"Already did. Most are too busy working for Marvel, DC, etc." Considering what you said here, it quite unlikely the few who are open will come checking out the Job Forums looking for commissions vs. working a steady comic job

Many comic colorists are on DA. It would be easiest if you messaged them yourself instead of hoping they slipped by the Job forum.

No, not 50 Marvel and DC Colorists. Some are very good colorists and some are only fair. I have a nice size list now that keeps growing.
