I'm looking for someone that is interested in making a comic(web or otherwise) with me. The concept is superheroes that are more realistic than the standards. There will be potential to draw some epic battles, but mostly it will feature a lot of dramatic scenes that will require a range of expressions.

Requirements: able to draw realistic people with a variety of expression. Able to follow direction. Able to put up with me.

Anyone interested?

Yeah, I try to present the worst case scenario so that those that go for it are typically pleasantly surprized.

Works out much better than disappointment.

I honestly don't expect anything, but trying to find help here doesn't take much effort.

I've also read The Watchmen, but think that even it was a little too unrealistic for my liking. I still think it was a brilliant story, but it's not what I would write.

I would bite, but i'm far too busy procrastinating on my own stuff to place any effort into anything else unless it really catches my attention. I actually can get lots of work done if i have someone to whip and put blinders on me.

Would this be a strip-based comic, or are we working with full pages? I assume the latter.

I was just teasing, though I presume you knew that Trev. Good luck though.

Why don't you just write a story if you can't draw well enough?

A valid question. That's a route that I will probably take, although I do ultimately want it to become a comic.

Riot, full page layouts. If you're interested, I can give you some pretty detailed descriptions for a couple pages. I really only need lineart, but if you can do your own coloring as well that's a plus. I'm decent enough with photoshop to handle the coloring if need be.

Yes, I have considered making my own comic, and yes I have considered putting a more realistic spin on the typical superhero mythos.
I can only conclude that you are, in fact, a powerful psychic leading a team of gifted youngsters in a fight to preserve humanity from enslavement by misanthropic metahumans.
And that your weakness is stairs.

Making a story is OK but who reads?

Literate people. You might not know any. They hang out here with the other people with a marginal IQ. Very Happy

What about Lowfatrate and Fatfreerate people? Confused

TIAB, i am interested in your comic. I thought about it, and i think it would be a good idea. The only problem is, on my side, i have next to no paneling experience. I have done a lot of research, and have done some strips, but not really any full page layouts. So basically, i'd be learning as we go. I am an ample artist though.

I am also learning when it comes to CGing, but i think i may be able to pull off simple comic book coloring. If all fails, my wife does some nice CG work, if i can coax her to do some coloring. She is kinda busy with projects nowadays tho. =\

Here are some samples of my work:

There is not a lot there atm, as for right now we are without a scanner. I hope to remedy this in a couple of days. Please let me know what you think. '-'

A little potato soup just came out my nose. And, I think, a small bit of ham.
