I am looking for an artist to do a custom piece for my Comic launch, for an image to be turned into a limited time cover and poster, that I am going to offer as a kickstarter reward. Credit is of course given on each and every poster and in my comic credits
The poster would only go to those who donate during the kickstarter so it would be a limited time offer thing.
Regardless if I am funded or not, I want this picture done for personal reasons too so I am covering this out of my own pocket, so my budget is a little restricted.
My budget is $50 at the moment, but it can increase pending on the artist I pick... I will be using paypal or Western Union.
I am also willing to attach any business cards you want to offer, to the poster when they are given out to help spread the word about your work
I am also looking for someone willing to work closely with me, providing a sketch up first, and text and e-mail updates periodically, and upon request, within the same day of the request. Having a skype or Livestream is a huge plus so I can watch on my free time as-well.
I want the art to match the comic, so the artist must not be afraid of boy-love content or explicit and bloody content.
The comic is a yaoi/ boy-love with explicit scenes.
The layout is a magical modern day setting where mythological creatures share today's world with humans.
To get a good feel for the theme I am looking for, the actual intro to the comic is this:
"In a Fantastical modern era, where the supernatural co-exist with humans, hot headed, former employee of the hitman group known as "Drop Association", Tekeshi Chiyo Kibou finds himself in a hopeless situation while on a mission for an unknown consultant, and is welcomed warmly into the home of a mysterious and charismatic billionaire, Sephtis Vasuman.
Having no choice but to accept Sephtis' offer and welcome, Tekeshi learns how to live a somewhat normal life.
They grow to become competitive rivals, and a bond is formed between the two, but trust is still strained, as Sephtis is abnormally secretive, and Tekeshi can't help but get curious and investigate his host..."
I want a quality to match my own work on the comic:
The subjects of the poster will be these 2 characters:
The artist I want to hire must have a style and quality similar to these works, (being be able to some-what mimic my own style is a huge plus!)
and be able to work with dark, bloody, and sexual themes:

I am a stickler for protocol... So if you don't follow these next rules I will NOT chose you no matter how good your art is and how low of a price you offer.....
To offer your services, please provide at least 3 thumbs that are good examples of your CURRENT works and/or a price chart containing at least 3 humanoid examples of your work, plus how much you would charge for this project.
Please post all replies to this thread only, I have my note box full of other things I need to keep track of.
I will be very picky since the work will be attached to my "brain-child" so it can take 2 or 3 weeks for me to decide. Keep posting, I will get back to EVERYONE who replies, whether or not I chose them
Any other questions, please ask.
