Well obviously I'm seeking someone artist help me write this manga I'm doing. I got the story, script, and pretty much everything for this manga ready, I just need someone who can draw. The type of art I'm looking from is sort of gritty (more in the lines of Battle Angel manga).

Here's a brief description of my story:
Genre: Action,Sci-fi, horror, and fantasy

Background:
In the year 2050 two major terrorist attacks crippled the U.S. One was a computer virus that shut down everything electronically in the U.S. The Next one was a biochemical agent that spread through the US water supplied. Thousand upon thousand of people died during these dark times. In the darkest hour the citizens turned to their government to save them. In the government in a matter of fifteen years did just that. They develop cure for the disease caused by the biochemical agent and cleaned the water supplied. The government had fixed the electronic problem and destroyed the virus. However, even though the U.S returned to it formal glory, it left a lasting impression on the country. The government, under the fa├žade of democracy, was actually a totalitarian government.They Monitor, and controlling every aspect of people lives. There is also a social class system and certain sections people live in according to class. The Main party controlling the US is called the New Republic. They hold every political house and power in the US. This party is very conservative and religious orientated.


Plot:
Young woman named Dezzi lived an uneventful life until one night secret soldiers tried to apprened her at her home. She escaped and was chase by the soldiers. Also at the same time three anarchist and rebels were running away from a site they planeted a bomb at. The four accidentally met up and were corner by the soldiers blocking their exit to the Wasteland (the lower class part of Skye). A hail of gun fire came their way until Dezzi?s eyes changed silver and she screamed ?STOP!? and felt this immense power leaving her body. And in that very second, the bullets stopped in midair only a few inches from their bodies. All four of them and the soldiers were in shock. But they knew they didn?t have time to figure what happened and they escape.
Now she is with the SM and as time progressed she soon discovered the extraordinary power she has inside her and found out there are people like her. And as she help the SM in trying to take down the system her past slowly resurface and she realizes that she isn?t as normal as she thought and the life she knew may not be true.

If you're interested or want more info on the story (characters, setting,etc) just send me a PM. I also wrote the 1st script so if you want to see it just send me a PM

P.S.: I also looking for few more people to help me on this so if you're interested (it doesnt matter if you're an artist or writer) just ask :)

Hello my dear.

I saw your message, took a look at your art and I was wowed. Your style is exactly the style I'd like to incorperate into a storyline I've been working on for years.

I am a serious writer. I've had works published frequently, so I've got the references if you need them. But I've always loved manga and thought, when I was wiritng a new book, that writing it doesn't do it the justice I think it deserves. I think you need to see the characters in this one. I've done some very crude drawings of main characters just to get an idea of things but they need work.

I think we could make a great team and I'd like to get to know more about you.

Email me at [email]laura_berry@tiscali.co.uk[/email] if the feeling is mutual and we can go over ideas and see if this could be a working partnership.

PS. If you want general plot, character outlines etc I can get those to you too. I assure you there is shounen-ai in it but also has het. In this story, social boundaries don't exist.

Hi. :p

I'm a writer, a serious one. I've had works published but now I want to do manga.

This is where you come in. I'm looking for someone who can draw my story. The story is a Fantasy, see below for the plot.

I need an artist who draws a particular style. It's a serious manga with comic undertones and most of the characters are adults so you have to be able to draw adults well instead of specialising in tennagers or adults who look like teenagers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The very basic plot (because I'm too far along in the writing to give a summary without spoilers) - Anyone can be born a Babel, women and men who have the gift of original life (maghic) and Agora was one of them. She was sent to the centre of the world where the University of Babel stands in the form of a circle of seven towers and a central, sky-piercing tower none have been able to enter since an incident time forgot. In her premature studies in maghic, she quickly became a Babel supergenius, studying constantly for an end ambiguous to her. In her early studies, she then finds a book on top of a library shelf which turns out to be the diary of one of the greatest Babel from before the central tower, known as Ziron, became impregnable. From this diary she learns a completely new way of casting Maghic which in her early adulthood leads to the victory of what seemed an impossible war, the Shadow Revolt. She was branded a hero and a genius of Babel but 300 years on her legacy has gone either to the graves of her comrades or to the elder Babel who do not involve themselves often with the younger Babel. Thus, in her current lifestyle as a teacher of original life in the 7th tower, her past seems to have died.

This is about the change as her lover is killed in an attempt to assassinate the Bebal leader, the Onarch. Agora falls into deep conflict between her fierce loyalty to Bebal and to the man she cannot believe a traitor. In her persuit of the truth, she is taken out of Bebal and beyond the boundaries of what she calls 'the world' to be set on a different course; to find the seven keys to Ziron...without triggering another Shadow Revolt.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OK, turned out a little less basic than I thought but it's there.

I'll appreciate any replies but replies with sample art would be great!
So email me. I can then give you some of the manuscript.

Thanks

This sounds like a story I'd be interested in doing. Unfortunantly at this time I'm limited in my mediums as well as my sacnner useage.I NEED TO BUY ONE! Although maybe take a rain check with me in about a month I should have some art posted on my Otaku site.Just check out Sensei Fuzzball at the Otaku in artists portfolios. Anyway what style of art are you looking for?

[FONT="Palatino Linotype"][B][I][COLOR="Red"]I've been working on a big three novel project since i gradutated high school. The project is exciting and promising but without a artis its doomed to stay a novel. If your an artist that feels intrested in helping me forge this book from a novel into a graphic novel or even manga dont shy away, i promise i wont bite :animesmil these three novels arnt the my only ideas, i have a great many other ideas that simply havnt been finished or started.
The purpose for my asking help should be obvious but i do have underlying desires to publish the would be graphic novel. I've hesitated to sell it tho or even obtain an agent for it because i've been holding out on either meeting an artist in real life, or somehow find one online(this is my first attempt online =P). I can promise only two things, Full credit where credit is due, and a share in the (hopefully massive) royalties of the book. Oh and a added bonus of having your name on it as well lol.
If this "cry for help" grabs your attention feel free pm me. We can talk about which stories we can do together.[/COLOR][/I][/B][/FONT]

I've been writing just about all my life. I'm working on a story with a friend of mine, and I'm working on a manga with an artist. Right now though, I am low on ideas. I was hoping there was an artist that needed help with their writing. I'm not guaranteeing I [I]can[/I] help, but I surely will try. I think this would help my writing ability by perking up my 'hey-i-just-thought-of-an-idea' sense. It's not working well right now. E-mail me at [email]yugo_wolfy@hotmail.com[/email] if you think you fit these qualifications. You can check out my website for more stuff to look at, but the writing is several years old, so it really stinks. Plus, it's fanfiction...so...yea. The site is [url]http://www.freewebs.com/yugokitari/[/url].

When it comes to the writing, I would really like to help out with an already started story. I can make a plot line and stuff, but I'd like to know what you're looking for in the beginnning.

Greetings fellow Otaku! XD I'm looking for an artist who can draw Mecha for a submission for "Rising Star Of Manga." The story is as follows:A supreme robot named Omnicon created a world known as "Mechrion." Shortly afterwards Omnicon felt a virus developing inside his centeral core, and disspelled it. Once disspelled, the virus then created a body of its own, and became "Destructus." After Omnicon created "The Battalirons," to protect him, from Destructus, he created the "Destructons", who tricked Omnicon, and nearly took him back to Destructus. So as the Battalirons battled the Destruuctons, Omnicon split himself into five segments, and fled to earth, where he then fused himself with five newborn children... Now fifteen years later these children have to work with the robotic partners residing in their bodies, and the Batallrons to defeat the Destructons, and Destructus from ruling the universe.

Each child has a mechanical partner, and once they fuse together, is given a unique suit of armor, as well, as acceptional fighting skills, and the ability to conjure light vechiles from their own auras. Somewhat like what you might see in Tron,( For those of you who saw the movie in 1982, or perhaps a later date, or maybe played Kingdom Hearts II.) The Destructon Leader can create miniature drones from the earth, and use them as Armor that would increase his power, or to attack his foes. But he wishes to use Omnicron to reshape the universe.

And I know some of the names need work, as well as the overall story... I'm in the process of dealing with that...

I am a writer seeking an artist.

I have about 50 pages written and a good amount of the characters drawn for my manga idea. Here's a very general idea of what to expect:

(Note: Anything capitalized within the story's summary is a title given and is subject to change.)

--------------------------------------------

======================
RAGNAROCK
======================

TITLE QUOTE:
?Sure, the longer I listen to musicians giving their perspective on life, the more I visualize that perspective. I read the news, I?ve seen sadness, and I've felt depressed. But at the same time, I?ve also seen hope and I do my best to contribute back?I can?t help but feel sorry for every person who has turned music into RAGNAROCK.?
- HELIOS

BACKGROUND:
RAGNAROCK takes place on the planet known as GAIA. GAIA blesses chosen people with celestial powers to serve her. A chosen one is known as a CHERUB. GAIA also curses those who do not fulfill their life well enough to reach NIRVANA. Upon death, a cursed individual is reborn and is then known as an APOSTATE.

A CHERUB?S duty is to protect humanity and GAIA itself based on the fears of GAIA.

An APOSTATE?S duty is to fulfill their life for what is generally known as a second chance at life. However, the person is challenged with a handicap based on their flaws prior to death.

The agency that deals with CHERUBS and APOSTATES are known as the SUPERNATURAL INVESTIGATION AGENCY (S.I.A.). Their general mission is to help humanity to learn more CHERUBS and protect them against APOSTATES.

PLOT:
HELIOS, the main protagonist, was born a CHERUB. The S.I.A. raised HELIOS and trained him as a super soldier. As their ace in the hole, the S.I.A. calls on HELIOS in dire situations.

In a year span (separated by the four seasons), HELIOS takes on four threats to humanity's existence. Each threat is more dangerous than the previous threat.

TYPE:
Gothic Romanticism

GENRES:
Black Comedy
Drama
Action

THEMES:
Good vs. Evil
Love vs. Morals
Political Corruption vs. Religious Corruption
Individual Fate vs. Collective Fate
Depression vs. Courage

--------------------------------------------
Due to leaving out spoilers and intellectual property, I feel that the plot summary makes the story sound generic and thin when it is really quite the opposite.

P.S. I feel I have been able to include zombies, ninjas, robots, vampires, giant animals, big foot, the grim reaper (Death), a cowboy, and a bunch of other crazy characters that would otherwise seem impossible to put in a story and hold together a plot quite nicely.

If you are interested and would like to hear/see more, feel free to message me.

I am a newbie manga artist looking for a writer for a manga series. Mostly any genre is fine though I'm really looking for supernatural or fantasy.

I would prefer original storylines, but a fanfic is fine too if it has a good plot. I'm ok with shonen-ai/shojo-ai, but please no lemons of any sort...I'm not really good with drawing those scenes ^^;; It can be any length.

As a warning to everyonel, my schedule is not set and my working pace may change depending on things happening in my life (ex. school, homework, etc.).

Thanks ahead of time to everyone who PMs!

[SIZE="2"]Hey I'm writer looking an artist for a manga or comic. I've been working on a story for a few months and have a pretty good idea on where I want the story to go. Tenatively I've named it "Under Lock and Key", but I'm not sure that's what I want to call it.

Here's a synopsis: A smart up and coming college sophomore named, Daemon finally seizes an opportunity to gain what he's only dreamed of, power. By chance he stumbles across a key that keeps a demon imprisoned. This demon's name is Airreign and he longs to be free but needs Daemon to release him from his containment by using the power of the key to find and eliminate the 7 lords who contained him. Consumed by his lust for power Daemon decides to accept this task and kill the 7 lords to release the demon with the intention of gaining permonate control over his power and to reign over a perfect nation. The 7 lords he desperately seeks hide amongst the populous and even with the key they are not easy to locate. And with one of the Lords, Silvian, aware of his presence and hot on his trail will he be able to defeat the Lords without getting killed before hand?

It's an anti-hero or Byronic hero story not unlike Code Geass or Death Note. It has a alot of twists and turns and hopefully very suspensful. I created so that even though Daemon is an anti-hero he is likeable and he believes what he's doing is for the benefit of the world. I also want people to like Silvian who represents the characteristics of a hero, in that she fights to protect mankind from evil.

my email is, [email]ooreflekzoo@hotmail.com[/email] or you can PM me if you are interested.
It would be helpful as well if you'd send some of your work or provide a link to it so that I can get a feel for your skills.
Thanks in advance to any feedback.

[B]Artist seeking Writer[/B]

Hey, everyone! I've been drawing anime and manga for YEARS and would like to draw someone's story. I'd prefer it to be original, no fan stuff. It's not that I don't like it, it's just I'd rather do something totally original. That's all.

My stuff can be viewed several places: (please click the links to view them)

*[URL="http://keloki.deviantart.com"]Keloki's DeviantArt[/URL]
*[URL="http://wild-coffee.deviantart.com"]Wild Coffee's DeviantArt[/URL] (this one I made because I got tired of Keloki)
*[URL="http://taiyaki.sheezyart.com"]Taiyaki's SheezyArt[/URL]
And of course:
*[URL="http://www.theotaku.com/portfolio/yakiimo"]Yakiimo's Portfolio[/URL]

I do not have tones. I mainly do black and white and have Micron Pens for inking. I can do text in the computer but I do hand-drawn word bubbles. If you want super-duper tones, then that would be on the computer. But I have a [B]mouse[/B], not a tablet. If you want it toned on the computer, it would take a while. Just a heads-up.

I cannot draw mecha. My boys end up looking like girls so I can do shounen-ai. But I will not do graphic sexual scenes between anyone. Straight or gay. Kissing between anyone (two boys, two girls, boy and girl) I can do. Making out is okay. Graphic sex is not okay. Thankee.

I cannot draw realistic animals! XD I promise.

Any other questions feel free to Private Message me or pop me an email. [email]keloki@gmail.com[/email]

Thanks a lot! I'll check this every day.

Hey, I'm LibertyCabbage, author of a few obscure webcomics out there, and I'm back at it again, teaming up with Slitwrist Studio ( [url]http://www.slitwriststudio.com[/url] ) to do a collab project I've had rolling around the back of my mind for a while.

This project, as I've conceived it, will be a continuous collection of short comics, ranging from one to ten pages in length each, that will be published in groups as a monthly update (sort of like a web magazine). Each monthly update will feature about five shorts, give-or-take depending on the lengths of the submissions.

What we're looking for are:

- writers to submit comics scripts in length ranging from a minimum of one page to a maximum of ten pages.
- artists willing to contribute their skills towards making the comics, whether it be in pencils, inks, colors, lettering, or any combination of the above.

I'll be serving as editor for the project, selecting the best scripts and artists in order to ensure a high level of quality, and I'll be working with Slitwrist to scrounge the Web for interested talent.

Some details:

- There is no limit or restriction on content or style of the comics as long as it's tastefully done. Be creative!
- There is no restriction to size or format of the pages.
- All contributors will get full credit and ownership of their work, as well as having links to their personal site displayed to help promote their other work.
- Unfortunately, there are no plans at this time to give payment for any contributions. However, this project might help you get exposure and experience as well as feedback to help you improve your skills. Also, you'll be able to make good comics and express yourself without the hassle of having to look for others to work with.
- Keep in mind that to ensure quality of content, not all contributors will be accepted. However, I will try to give helpful feedback to anyone who's not accepted.
- Artists will be given a script or choice of scripts to work on. However, if they don't want to work on the script/s they can turn them down and wait for something they like better to come along. Also, artists can specify certain kinds of genres/styles they'd prefer to work with as well as a general comic length they prefer to work with.
- Artists can draw their own scripts, although it's recommended that they submit the script for approval before drawing it.
- We're looking for new content created exclusively for this project. So, we prefer that you don't submit anything that's already been published in print or on the Web.
- As editor, I'll be proofreading the scripts for changes to spelling and grammar, although no changes will be made without the writer's permission.
- I will likely be contributing scripts and/or artwork at some point.
- You can send in as many scripts as you want as long as none of them are any longer than ten pages. Also, artists can apply to work on multiple comics if they wish to.
- If I think of anything else, I'll add it to this list!

If you're interested in contributing, please send your submission (or any questions) to [b]libertycabbage@hotmail.com[/b] :

Writers - Send a one-to-ten page script that contains the name you'd like to be credited as, an e-mail address for me to contacted you with, and a personal website you'd like to promote (if applicable).

Artists - Send some examples of your work or a link to an online portfolio. Examples of previous comic work a plus! Also, specify what area/s of artwork you'd like to contribute (pencils, inks, colors, lettering, or all of the above).

Thanks for reading this, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi everyone, I just recently joined Otaku Boards, and I was hoping to get some help. You see, I'm a writer, and I've been living with this story for years now. About a year or two ago, I realized that the story wouldn't work as a novel or collection of stories (and I certainly don't want to break it apart).

Yep, I wouldn't possibly be satisfied with it in any other form than a manga. The only problem is...I DON"T DRAW!!! *<.< Don't be so dramatic...*

So, I've reached a snag in my creation, haha. I know everything I want to happen in the series as far as the plot, character development, etc. I don't really have the time (or anything) to learn how to draw from scratch (I can pretty much only do stick figures).

Thanks in advance!

Will

cant wait to hear from you. I'd be interested in working on the character design stage only - too busy for the whole manga. Let me know if it works.

Okay, so my story centers around a High School senior named Kevin Fey. At the story's start, he learns from a Celestial guide called a Neja, that he is the "Hero of Realms". At the start he isn't a very tough character (think the opposite of Ichigo from Bleach), though with help from his friends, he learns how to fend for himself and about his newly discovered powers.

Kevin is a homosexual, though this is NOT a yaoi manga. I want it to be another thing about the character and his story, not so much the defining factor.

I have all of the stroy archs planned out, the characters, what they go though, etc.

If anyone is interested in being an artist for me, I would greatly appreciate that, and just send me a PM. Thanks!

Hi, I'm a writer and go by the nickname of Naki

I am looking to collaborate with an artist on one of my following stories.

The pertinent information is below:

Title: Rubidus

Genre: Action/Adventure

Preferred Style: Semi Realistic manga (Berserk/Claymore feel)

Length of Project: Continuous.

Expectations: Set by artist and writer (Could be slow/fast whatever fits our schedules)

Compensation: Collaboration for experience and credit, if we decide to submit and publish then there will be an added benefit.

Rubidus Project Summary:

Kyrna is a 15 year-old girl with light, faded red hair. Kyrna lives happily, yet simply within the slums of a city at war. Trying to combat the rising inhabitants within the slums and the dwindling ranks of military forces, the military decides to raid the slums. Against her will, Kyrna is forced into their ranks. The brutal reality of the military and the reawakening of her haunting dreams jostle her core. Will Kyrna succumb emotionally and what significance are the dreams pointing to her having a possible older sister?

Pertinent information:

Artist will need to be able to draw explosions, fighting scenes, creative weapons (blades, guns, and unique weapons), nature settings, underground military like complex, military and city gear, tech gadgets (pda's, sci-fi scanners...), simple mech, tall and thin characters, and military personnel.

If interested please post here, or shoot me a message.

just looking for a artist to draw me up a manga.. don't care if your not great as long as they are of a good quality.. i'm looking for the manga to be post modern.. as far as time is concerned i don't care if it takes us several months to finish as long as we have at least finished one chapter... i already have parts of the story in my head i know how the story will begin and end... and i will be very very inventive... lol.. if u want to give cristism on what u think might help.. be my guest

the story's main protagonist is a former samurai who left his fighting ways... to have a wife and kid.. so he becomes a rice farmer... one day when he travels to a neighbouring town to sell rice.. when the shogunate arrive at his home village and slaugher/burn everyone (inlcuding wife and kid) over tax issues... the rice farmer now lost (emotionally) decides to take revenge... along the way he meets a younger man (an underground street fighter at night to earn money for himself) who is wild and out of control and needs discipline and is a gifted fighter ( his weapon of choice a katana his father gave him) but needs someone to harness his energy.. the other is a wanted man.. an archor and a very skilled one (this guy is the quiet one and rational thinker)... this manga has a samurai champloo feel but i think it can be better.... and i have a lot of twists to keep readers entertain... i don't want it to be a long manga possibly 50-100 chapters

I'm a writer, and I'm not half bad at storylines if I do say so myself. I enjoy the manga style, and love writing scenerios for the charchters, or playing with storylines in my head, but my art frankly smells.

If there are any artists out there looking for a writer, feel free to contact me. I am friendly, willing to work with people, don't have to have my own way all the time, and can work with most schedules. :)

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"] Hello, Im am posting to this thread in the hopes of finding an artist who would like to collaborate on a short graphic novel. I do have serial manga ideas but right now I would like to focus on getting one good story out to submit to DelRey or TokyoPop. Royalties would be split down the middle. The title of my manga novel is "Beautiful Seed" You can read about it on my otaku portfolio. [url]http://www.theotaku.com/worlds/beautiful_seed/view/72388/beautiful_seed/[/url]
I also have a popular script called "Flying Cats Dumpling" Im getting allot of good feedback on that but it would be a longer project. [url]http://www.theotaku.com/worlds/flyingcatdumpling/view/71498/book_1_bitter_harvest/[/url]

Synopsis for beautiful seed : In the near future the Megatropolis *13,000,000 citizens* known as Geaga City is growing out of control. Concrete and pavement seem to even dwarf nearby Enid Forest.The cities clean air comes from Enid Forest there's only one problem. Enid can't possibly sustain the burden put upon it and when a devious company called Susumu Laboratories unveils its newest invention a machine that can clean the cities air on its own its obvious Geaga City has intentions of bulldozing one of the last forests to the ground. Susumu Laboratories has no idea that knocking down one of the last pillars (Enid Forest) down will cause a catastrophic domino effect of events.
Things look dismal until a mysterious girl named Ellu who was born out of a large blossom with strange powers appears on a mans door claiming that she was sent by the spirit of the earth itself and in 4 days she will topple Geaga City and is asking for his help.Find out more in my script.
