This is our Job Offerings Board. It is so that members, and non-members, can find our members who are seeking services.  

If you are offering a service, I recommend our Commission Board for you to post your offer, as well as checking here to see if anyone requires a service you provide.

If you have a better paying project, such as one with a set per-page price, we welcome you to write up a journal post about it, so that more people will see it. We only allow this to be done for proper "jobs", meaning there is compensation for the work being done. Please remember that artists/editors/writers/web designers/ graphic designers/ everyone here works hard on what they do, and so "free" work isn't to be expected. If you post an offering and no one applies, try seeing if you can alter your budget around, and check the Commission Board to see if anyone is willing to work within your price range.

Keep in mind, it is a good idea to contact multiple people as each one is offering different benefit/payments and have different needs. We're only providing their names and how to contact them, as well as any specific requests for auditions, but if you need more information, please contact us, as we have a list of what each person is seeking and can help you pick out the ones that fit your offering the best.

When you have found who you need contact us so we can remove you

If you wish to be added to this journal, look at the end of this post for information.



We are not asking that if you are able to offer certain benefits/payment, please at least put that you have some items to offer and want to work it out with the individual(s) involved

In the Menu, you can select what you are to see who has posted seeking your skill.
We have two new sections: Publicist and Graphic Artist. If you are a publicist, your interested in helping people advertise their work.
Graphic Artists create websites/banners/promotional material and may assist in finding hosting sources as well as places to get things made/printed. (You may not do everything, but if you do anything in that area, it's counted.)

      If you have been placed in the wrong category, or no longer wish to be listed (such as, if you have found what you are looking for), please sent a note to the group and SkeyeDragon will take care of it, they are very dedicated. If they are busy, I'll handle it.

      How To Be Added

      In order to be added here, we ask that you send the group a note with:
      • Your name (penname, nickname, whatever)
      • What you're seeking
      • If you are offering financial compensation. (If you are, and it's over $3 a page, you are welcome to post a journal about the project, the compensation, and your needs in order to get more attention)
      • Preferred Genres/Styles (If you have one, such as if you are seeking a manga style artist, we don't want to refer someone who only does realism, or 3D)
      • A link to a journal/website page detailing what you are requiring.
      • If you require something done as an audition
      • Contact Info
      Please note, we greatly prefer it if you can offer some form of compensation... even if it's something as simple as "I can pay them in DA points". This will allow us to keep an eye out for anyone stating they will do comics for points. The more compensation you can offer ($5 per non-colored page, 30% of the profit made from all book sales, 30% of ad revenue, 30% of merchandising profits, business cards, publish their comic, etc.), the better your chances of finding someone. Even if the comic is just a hobby for you, the person assisting you is giving up their free time to do this. We will not be able to seek out anyone willing to work for free, it will be up to the individual to find you here and contact you. However, if you offer compensation, we'll go through and see if anyone has posted that they will do comics which fits your budget and refer them to you.
      Tips and guidelines
      To those of you seeking someone:
      When posting here, realize it may take months to find someone, so it is beneficial to link back to this listing everywhere you can, so that yourself, and everyone else, has a better chance at being found.
      Never underestimate the value of a contract. If you need help with one, contact Ravyn, as she has experience with them.
      Be friendly and respectful, if a colorist is late, contact them right away, but do not be accusatory, be inquisitive instead, and polite. You do want this to be a professional relationship, especially if you are paying, but a friendly one is also beneficial to you both.
      Exchange as much contact information with each other as you can. IM, email, phone, you should both be able to get in touch with one another very easily! I often recommend giving them a friend's email address in case you lose your internet or computer.
      Make your deadlines known. If/when possible, create a calendar that's easily viewable between yourself and your partner(s). A Google Document can be very efficient and handy for this.
      Keep a list of when each page is due, the update schedule, as well as any conventions, signings, events, etc. that are coming up and details about them.
      Share credit. Especially if your finances are low, do your best to help out your partner(s). If they are the artist, it may be a good idea to have their name on every page. Also, understand that all financial tasks related to the comic are up to you, as the creator. If they offer, that's great! But don't demand or expect it, just be joyful if your team offers. Understand their money and time is precious, just as yours is. Even if they draw/color/edit/promote/etc. fast, they are still taking the time they could be doing something else to do work for you.

      If you're offering a skill:
      As Manga Creators has stated in their guide, before you work with someone, be sure you know what you are getting yourself into!
      Do not commit to a project you might bail on, as it can have rather devastating consequences. One, the person/people you are working with will lose trust in you, and may be out a good bit of money, time, effort, etc. Let your commitment level be known, and be honest about it!
      Don't go about as if you are super involved with the project, even insisting or offering ideas and changes, if you don't feel you'll be able to stick with the comic. If there is a deadline given, realize that this is like any other job, and consequences exist if deadlines are missed. Twice now, RavynCrescent  has had artists bail on her the day before a convention, with nothing done. The first time it cost her thousands, the second time it cost her hundreds (She'd learned to be wary), and had to come up with a whole new set of projects just so she would not be sitting there with an empty table as the whole focus was supposed to be on this new artist of hers.
      If you're looking for a one shot, says so. If you can be invested in a lengthy comic, also say so.
      Now, life does happen, but it is important to be very vocal and explain things to your partner(s). If your time for the comic diminishes, explain that it has right when you realize it, and see if you can help find a replacement, even if it's temporary, or see what other plans the team might have.
      Being replaced can hurt, but if you handle every situation with dignity and grace, you end up looking better for it, and will be able to use your team members as referrals for future jobs.

We did consider it! However, we want those interested to contact the creator individually about that.
For instance, someone pay say their budget is $3.00 per page. They may get offers, but see someone they want the most who is offering, but at $8.00 per page. The person who posted can still hire that individual, but won't have those with less experience trying to get the higher pay.
So it may be best to send them a letter and, right off the bat, ask.
However, I believe you bring up a good point. Many individuals may not be contacting those on the list because they fear it will be for free...

I'll add on an option that'll allow people to add a dollar sign if they are offering financial compensation.

I'm dubious about applying for a job that doesn't say up front how much it pays.  It might really be $3 a page, or $8 a page.  Or even worse, the infamous "Paid on the back end out of profits the book will never make."

RavynCrescent Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
*nod* I agree. We're going to start posting what the pay is, and we're now ONLY allowing journals to be made by those who are paying over a set amount... We'll only be referring people when we know exactly what's happening.

So, like, if you post on the Commission Us board saying you have a set price, we only refer you to people offering near that.

Over all, if you have the time apply for a lot of them. See what they're offering, see what they can afford, and see what can be done. If they want $5 per page, and you normally charge $8, see about if they are willing to not have the pages colored, or if they'll extend the deadline for when pages are due.

I do agree with you, though, if it's profits off a book, still need to be paid per-page... I would recommend, however, that you get a contract stating that a book will be made within X many months, with X many copies produced. If they fail to complete it, then they owe you a penalty amount.

A lot of people won't put the exact pay, because they'll say "$10 per page" and get someone who normally charges $3.00 per page, coming to them and insisting on $10. Or, they'll say $10.00 per page, and someone who does it for $12 won't apply, but that person is good enough that had they applied, they would have increased their budget to afford them.

I am glad you all are going to start posting the pay rates.

But although JRXTIN stated it boldly, he's quite right.  

I am reluctant to post here on this, as I'm new to the group and don't want to cause waves.

But The average flatter charges $10 to $15 dollars a page.  Pencilers, inkers and colorists make a lot more. 

When I am hired to do the whole shebang (penciling, inking and colors) I charge on average $100 or so.  And that's pretty darn affordable for all three processes in one artist.   

The reason I post this is not to be problematic, but to give the people looking for artists a realistic idea of what it costs to hire a skilled artist onto a project.   Artists have to stand for fair pay for services or else lowballing by the less informed makes it hard for us to live from the fruit of our labors.

If anyone is curious, it can take between 2 and 9 hours to pencil a page, easily another 2 to 7 to ink it and several hours to do colors.  So if you have an uncomplicated page expectation with low environmental detail, a comic page is still going to cost the artists a total of about 10 hours to create it from pencils to final colors.  And that is a VERY simple page.  If we are treating ourselves barest minimum of fair, assigning maybe... heck, $10 per hour to our labor, that's still $100 for a page.   More complex ones can take much longer to create but we work on flat fee scales, not hourly ones.  It's a tradeoff.

I encourage artists to work for what they are worth and I encourage those seeking artists to understand that you are going to get what you  for.

RavynCrescent Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
Saying averages is tricky...
One reason we don't have a set minimum here is we strongly believe in allowing those who are creative to set their own prices, due to a few arguments and agreements, one of which was a month long fight over why writers are paid less than artists on DA and other places. . . (We have members with masters in creative writing who will make perhaps $50 an article, because 'well anyone can write'. So we stopped setting price limits/guidelines)

So for that, we let people decide not their value, but what they want to charge. In a career setting, if going in to a company it is suggestible to look up averages, but when doing freelance/commission, competitive pricing is allowed, which we do know can cause problems when those not having art be their full career can charge less, but it is up to them. We just tend to suggest the price not be "free" unless they really insist, and we suggest a contract be made.

Artists/buyers can choose what they like and pay what they can/agree to. Some writers may go through this and go "I have an idea in my head, a strong desire, I want this story told... but I get paid minimum wage." An artist may go through with the same thought "I want to make as much money off this project as possible, but my writing/editing could use some work... but I think the art is worth more than the story, so how much do I really have to pay a writer? They should just be glad their work gets drawn" I have friends going through both situations. It should never fly in a large company, but freelance is... hard. I personally have a few comics I want done desperatly, but have about given up on because I know I cannot afford it and wouldn't dare risk offending anyone. It's another reason I don't download music, haha... if you can't pay for it, you can't have it. Still, if a writer/artist/editor/web designer wants to price themselves to whatever degree, that's their right.

I have my own company making pet products... someone saw what I was doing, asked a bunch of questions, and is now copying me, and selling in the exact same venues and conventions. . . it sucks, especially since they have copied my pricing, and have gotten table space for free at the largest convention in the state. . . I have to make less of a profit to compete, and it sucks, I make a couple bucks an hour for these, but I price myself to where it works and it's gotten me into stores. I still cannot survive off it (which sucks, because last year I was surviving just fine off it).

All in all, it's better to pay more if you can in this, of course! You want to make sure the artist you are paying for gets what they deserve, and the more time/skill it takes the more they are worth. We like to post prices and example pictures to show that.

I agree completely that each artist should charge what they feel is desirable and fair and that the group shouldn't moderate that. 

However, most comic art, even for larger companies, is "freelance".  Few artists are signed solidly to a single studio, even famous ones.  This follows suit in much graphic art, game art and illustration art.  House artists are an uncommon thing.  So the industry standards for pay must be fostered carefully to keep income at a fair and living wage for professionals.  Comic artists specifically had to fight long and hard throughout the past to be compensated fairly. 

So I simply shared my opinion on pricing considerations to express that it is commonly held, in any Freelance art career, to be ultimately self defeating to undersell work, even to compete. Especially to compete.  Because it's solidly been proven that doing so drives down wages for all artists in the genre over time. 

And while I certainly sympathize with your predicament selling pet products, illustration is a different career path and behaves in its own particular fashion.  The healthy remedy to competition is innovation and self marketing, not underpricing.

There's a book out there published every so often.  "Graphic Artist's Guild Handbook of Pricing and Ethical Guidelines"  And it discusses the fair and ethical going rates for differing kinds of graphic artists and why underselling your services undermines the entirety of artists in your genre.  I always suggest that any graphic artist intent upon living off their art eventually keep a copy of the most recent edition of this book. 

That being said, no one should ever feel compelled to abide by it.  I simply offered as a possible resource to artists on their path to success.

$3-12.00 per page, seriously?  What kind of artist is working for that?  A 12 year old from Djibouti?  I'm sorry if I sound condescending, it's not like I'm rolling in work, but I've done comic and book illustration and that's crazy far below what I'd want for the simplest style I can do.  Which, to be honest, doesn't impress people enough to bother with.  Is anyone buying these $3-12 page books or are they pure vanity projects?
