It ain’t hard. You come up with some text & direction:
He sends back this:
Hey! I’m hiring colorists for interior, ongoing, PAYING gigs. I need several, so I’m throwing it out to the internets.
I can’t tell you exactly what project you’d be working on, but to give you an idea of the possibilities, the announced books my production company is currently overseeing for Dynamite Entertainment are:
-TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER (dino fights!)
-MAGNUS: ROBOT FIGHTER (robo fights!)
-SOLAR: MAN OF THE ATOM (space fights!)
-DOCTOR SPEKTOR (magic fights!)
-KINGS WATCH (Phantom fights!)
I’m willing to hire pros or rookies, provided you’re up for producing high-quality work on a monthly basis. To test your speed and skill, I’m providing you with hi-res pages to download here from KINGS WATCH, by the amazing Marc Laming from Jeff Parker’s script. I encourage you to download, color in a timely fashion, and reply to me on Twitter (I’m natecosboom) with colored samples. I will answer every reply with samples attached, and if your tryout is outstanding, we’ll correspond off-line about the next steps.
Good luck, and happy coloring!
I’m developing an all-ages property of indeterminate length. It is HUGELY ambitious and CRAZY wide in scope and subject matter. I’ve written lots of it, but I’ve reached a point where I’d like an artistic collaborator to become involved to help shape the characters and world. And before getting too deep into scripting, I’d like to know what my artistic partner’s style is, what their strengths are, what they enjoy drawing.
So I’m taking samples. You don’t have to be a veteran pro, but you must have sequential samples. I’d like to know your speed, but you won’t be expected to keep a super-fast monthly schedule. To show me samples, please respond to this tumblr post with your contact info, or reply to my twitter with a link. If you don’t have a link, I highly recommend you create a link to your work (it’s easy and pretty much mandatory for getting gigs via social media).
Money: You won’t be working for free. We’ll discuss pay, percentages, and co-ownership.
What you’d be drawing: Without getting too specific…trees, houses, cars, planets, the moon, volcanoes, every animal ever, robots, monsters, kids.
I can get more specific after checking out your samples. I’m not opposed to any artistic style at this point; really just depends on the collaboration and storytelling at this point.
Look forward to seeing your stuff!
