I can't help but notice that for someone with a claim to being visionary on your website, all of your present heroes are male, most of which have rinse-and-repeat stories, thus perpetuating the stale and male-dominated genre. It is entirely possible for a female hero to be depicted in a away that is not overtly seductive. Therefore, for the promises your comic makes, I'd like to see something a little more widely-encompassing.
That aside, you treat this as though this is an opportunity for the artists to be paid such low rates. It's a starter project, and there is no guarantee that this will work. I do hope you find someone who can work consistently and shares your vision, but for the amount of hours that will go into each page, $2 an hour just isn't cutting it unless they feel this company is their life work and don't have to pay any bills.
For Mr. Joe Faber and Pilot Comix, Hello! I'm an artist who really would like to gain some experience in the art world. Here are a few examples of my general style and line quality, although I am constantly learning and redeveloping both! I know my style isn't synonymous with the typical idea of what comic book art looks like, but I feel I could bring a new perspective by mixing my somewhat whimsical lines with the traditional comic styling! I work fast, and can do line art traditionally and as a digital rendering, although I'm still working on doing colour digitally. I've had experience doing story-boarding for several student films, but unfortunately don't have the right to post them! If you'd like to see more of my paid work, go ahead and take a look-see at my portfolio, [link] I'm pretty inexpensive and I work hard, so please consider me!
hello, how are you, I saw the announcement that an artist. I'm from Chile and I have 2 years of experience, I am professional and very punctual with deadlines, attached my page, I hope some answers, and we are in contact greetings.
It is disgracefully low I do agree; but not knowing how well the funding campaign will go I need to maintain a low budget in the beginning. As ad sales rise and/or a successful funding campaign, the money will follow. I will not try this based on massive losses in the beginning. I am aiming at break-even. Once things get started this will take off. Pilot Comix will have no competition to deal with. I fully understand professional artists staying away in the start because of the pay issue; this is why I am looking for up-and-comers and those just trying to keep working.
Not dissing you, because I can see what you're trying to do, and, at least you're trying to pay something. Good luck to you, but I myself can't afford to work for those rates, except for my personal work.
