Additional Artists Wanted for Urban Legend Pilot Episode

Post by tendra91 on Sun Aug 02, 2009 3:20 am

We need the following artistic roles for the urban pilot episode filled:

  • 1 Cover Artist (Draw and color a cover page for this episode project)
  • 1 Inker (Outlining Bloochikin's pencilwork with solid black lines; you can use ink if you're doing it by hand or use a photo-editing computer software such as Photoshop; This role is highly recommended to also be the colorist)
  • 1 Colorist (Color in the main objects/people in the comic via cell-shading; this role is highly recommended to also be the inker)
  • 1 or more Background Artists (Draw the backgrounds for the comic in a watercolor style)

You must be a registered staff member to volunteer for these roles. If you want to be considered for one of these roles, simply reply to this thread. (Keep in mind that there might be multiple people applying for the same role) I'll reply to your post or PM you to confirm your artistic role.

You may read the story outline for this pilot episode project here: http://ha6s.forumotion.com/episode-1-project-photography-urban-legend-f9/final-story-outline-t98.htm

Thank you!

I can do one of them (or both inker and colorist, cause I use Illustrator, and usually color my drawing there as well)
But I don't care which one, so I'll just take what's left ^^ Or whatever you think suits me best ^^

Annemiek, I can make you both the inker and colorist. It'll probably be easier that way. When you're inking, I would recommend using a variety of thick and thin brush strokes because it'll make the picture look like it has depth. I've updated the comic format criteria, so I would highly recommend browsing through it: http://ha6s.wordpress.com/to-do-list/comic-format-criteria/

Retromanka, I can make you a background artist. I'll be helping you make some of the backgrounds, but overall, I think we should do them in watercolor.

As always to both of you, let me know if you have any questions.

Okay great, I'll do the inking and coloring ^^
I've used different line thicknesses before, like in this drawing: http://fc07.deviantart.com/fs43/i/2009/101/7/a/Heroic_scaredy_cat_by_ABCreatief.jpg
That's what you mean, right?
That's the great thing about working with Illustrator; I can draw em with pen pressure, and then save a copy and set the lines to straight, just to see the difference. 'Cause pen pressure sometimes looks a little messy to me.. I think lines of the same thickness looks more Hey Arnold-ish ^^
Anyway, I'll make the first page with both pen pressure and normal lines, and show the difference, and then we can decide what's best Smile

I read them ^^
There's just one thing. The size and dimensions ( 8" x 11" ) are perfect.. But I think the original pages should be in a 300 dpi resolution, instead of 72 dpi. First of all, it's a lot easier to work on a larger scale, especially for those who work with photoshop (and sure you could start working on a large scale and then scale down, but you'd loose a lot of details, which would be a shame), and second, if anyone would like to print the pages (maybe even in the end bundle all comics into a little comicbook), you really need 300 dpi for a good quality.
So instead of 576 pixels x 792 pixels, I think we should use 2400 pixels x 3300 pixels.

Gah, sorry bloochikin, I must have left that detail out ^^;;.

You can post your pencilwork on the Sticky thread titled "Pencilwork" in the Episode 1 project sub-forum. Here's the link to it: http://ha6s.forumotion.com/episode-1-project-photography-urban-legend-f9/pencilwork-t143.htm#1555

Or, you can email me the pictures at tendra91@gmail.com. I can post them up on that thread from there / send them to the inker (Annemiek).

You don't have to pencil in the backgrounds if you don't want to. The background artists (me and Retromanka) can fill those in. If, however, you do want to sketch in the backgrounds (to get an idea of the scene angle / surroundings, ect.) please feel free to do so.

And lol you could totally be the cover artist. Thank you XD

I would call everything background except for the main characters and main props in each panel.

So, for example, let's say Sid was hiding behind a bush in the park, looking at Arnold in the distance.

Everything except for Sid, the bush, and Arnold, would be considered background. I might sketch in a few trees or maybe even the park pathway, but those don't have to be very detailed.

You might want to sketch the frames to have an idea of where each panel is. The inkers will redraw those frames to make them straight (if neccessary). So don't spend too much time worrying about straight frames. Smile

Alright.

Oh! Sorry, I know I'm asking a lot of questions, but um, is it okay if I put in some bubbles, because with the way i drew it, sometimes they have to under lap the characters. Should I just erase it and let whoever's taking care of that handle it.?

Do you still need any additional help for the pilot episode? Willing to help wherever you need it.
Also is there anything posted with the panels for this episode or a cover illustration idea? Thanks

Here's the Pilot script given to me by Tendra: link

I guess I'm suppose to do the cover art and I have this idea of the snapshot kid facing the reader and having his hands in that camera position: right index finger perpendicular to left thumb, left index finger perpendicular to right thumb, ya know?

For right now I'm good to go, but I'm not sure if there are any more background artists or inking/coloring people needed. I'd contact tendra

Very Happy We can always use more background artists.

Most positions on this episode project are taken, but there are plenty of vacant spots for Episode project 2 (Helga's Bow). They need the following:
  • 1 Editor
  • 1 Thumbnail Artist
  • 1 Penciler
  • 2 Colorist (block coloring, shading, highlights, ect.)
  • 1 Background Artist

  • If you think you want to help out for any of those roles, just write a thread to SueKay's want ad: http://ha6s.forumotion.com/want-ads-f3/help-needed-for-helga-s-bow-various-roles-available-t124.htm
