I want to commission about ten pieces of artwork with commercial permissions. I started a group here to organize the process.
I’m specifically looking for realistic/semirealistic, black and white (or grayscale) art for the interior of a book that I recently KickStarted (sample of the book here). These might be lineart, clean sketches, or shaded artwork. I’m hoping for a mix of full body character profiles (no backgrounds), concept art of the setting, and scenes with two or more characters interacting (with detailed backgrounds). Artists would have roughly four months to complete the commission; punctuality would be important, as would professional-looking artwork that fits the tone of the book.
Artists would be welcome to include any commissioned artwork in their portfolios, and they would be given clear credit beneath their picture in the book, as well as in the Acknowledgments. I have a set amount of money available, but I want to pay all artists a fair wage for quality work.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in taking on any or all of these commissions, please spread the word!
If you have any questions or concerns, my ask is open.
