Historical Fiction: PAID - Pencils/Inks

Hello! I'm looking for an artist who can do pencils and inks. This will be an Historical Fiction series that takes place in Ancient Greece. The series will run indefinitely (while there will be a definitive end to the story, it is far enough in the future that I don't know how many issues it will take to get there), but right now I want to put together SIX sample pages from the first issue, and use this as a pitch through crowdfunding, and then possibly publishers.

I am paying $50 per page for pencils/inks. I expect that we'll have a dialog throughout the process, and I will offer input at various stages, like the first sketch, the final pencil, and then the last thumbs-up on the inking. Also, I will supply you with as many sample images as I can to help with historical artifacts and accuracy. This is fiction, but I want to be as historically accurate as we can, while of course filling in the holes of history with our own ideas.

Payment will be sent through Paypal within 24 hours of each page's final acceptance. (If Paypal doesn't work, talk to me about another option.) Final pages should be submitted as 300 dpi TIFF files. Dimensions should be 6.875 in. x 10.5 in. (Since this will likely be our first time working together, I'm happy to send half payment on delivery of lo-res pencils.)

The Story
The series is called POLIS, and it will focus on the events of the latter half of the Peloponnesian War (big war between Athens and Sparta, and their allies, taking place about 60 years after the Persian Wars - i.e., 300, etc.). This was a war that lasted thirty years, nasty, like a civil war. Lots of atrocities. Where 300 shows the brotherhood and heroism of war, I hope for Polis to show that war is hell, full of backstabbing and corruption.

Polis begins in 416 BCE - ten years of the war, and about 8 years of a false peace have already happened. The spine of our story is the character of Alcibiades, an Athenian politician and general, who will soon bring Athens and Sparta back to war. However, when he is brought up on false charges by the Athenians, he will flee and offer his services to Sparta.

But all of that is in the future. Alcibiades will flee the Athenian army while in Sicily at the end of Issue 4, ending the four-issue arc (and I see the series carrying forward that way, in 4-issue arcs).

Issue #1 though - the pages we will be dealing with - will focus on the Olympic Games of 416 BCE, where Alcibiades shows the Greek world (and the reader) what kind of man he is.

FYI: There will be a chariot race, and so, horses.

About me
My name is Jave Galt-Miller, and I work in TV - mostly as a production coordinator. I am also recently the creator/writer of another comic book series: Lesbian Zombies from Outer Space (2 issues completed, just ended a Kickstarter campaign to fund Issues 3 & 4, which are in the works). Let me guess? You're thinking that sounds completely different from Polis. Yes it is.

You can check out some of the art, and stuff about me, on the website: www.lesbianzombies.com

Ancient Greek history has been a passion of mine for years. First interested in the story of Socrates, from there I got hooked on the character of Alcibiades (look him up) and the devastation of the Peloponnesian War - which pretty much ended things for the ancient world's most famous democracy.

Please send samples of your work, or links to said samples (sequential samples please) to welllightedfilm@gmail.com. I look forward to the collaboration!

Hey guys,

Thanks so much for all of the submissions I've received on this. While I have not yet made a final decision on an artist yet, I have narrowed it down to a select few, so I think it's safe to close submissions at this point.

I will try to respond to those who have contacted me. I may also approach some artists with some cover work on my other comic series. Still sorting through it all, but I will try to respond to everyone who contacted me.

Thanks again!
