Heyo. I'm a person who does art things, and I can't be satisfied illustrating somebody else's story. After so many years of collaborating with writers, I've never felt any of their stories become my own. [insert sad, manly tear]
So I've decided to focus upon my own stories. But there's one very obvious problem: I'm not an experienced writer. That's why I'm asking y'all writers to consider collaborating on this story with me. I'm asking for somebody who is strong in the areas where I am weak. Brainstorming, world-building, scripting, all that good stuff that a graphic story can't live without, no matter how pretty the art is!

Having experienced numerous "don't got money now, but we'll split 50/50 once we do make a profit!" and "do it for the recognition" scenarios, I understand the frustration of not being fairly compensated for your hard work. Yeah, sure they might be tight on money, but so is the next person! I've saved up a bit and have a small budget of $50. If that does not cover it, I am happy to compensate you in art or anything else in my power (listening to your own story, listening to you vent, sending you memes n whatnot). In short, I can pay! Woo! But seriously, don't take up this job if money and art are all you're after.

Now, let's get down to the story. I intend for this to be a one shot type of thing. A short story that can stand on its own and can be expanded upon and extended based on how well we work together. This is the story of Rome. Rome is bubbly, vapid, and very, very pink. Kama, a healer making a living in the grey area of the law, is charged by a particularly eccentric patron with the job of providing refuge for Rome, who, according to the patron, is a highly wanted criminal. What could this bratty, but harmless looking kid have done to get a bounty on their head? Kama has too many problems of his own and is too tired to spend much time wondering.

This story is just a tiny fragment of the whole picture, which can be summarized as: Three gods get into a fiery love triangle that results in a baby and a big ol' fight over who gets custody. Most gods avoid risking their own lives, so instead they handpick mortals to be their "champions" to represent and carry out their will. Last champ standing gets the kid. Think suburban hunger games. Some of these champs are about as skilled at fighting as I am at writing.

Here's some Rome (If you want additional examples of my art or additional info on the story, please ask!):
Spoiler

So, I'm hoping that both the story and the art interest you! Perhaps the story is so bad that you feel like putting in your mighty hand and fixing it up? Hahah! I do hope we'll become good friends! It's no fun working with somebody you feel no mutual friendliness with.

Comment or message me! I've got a monetary budget for only one writer, but I've got a limitless wealth in my heart for new peeps to be chummy with.

Thanks for reading!

Morning. As you can see by that little forum ID, I'm about at new as the sunrise on this site. So while I can't offer references or any rep, I can deliver some drafts of a story that I am in the midst of writing, should you like to card me for  my writer creds.

That said:

This kind of reminds me of the Hercules myth meets the Maury Show... I like it! The art design for Rome is awesome. If you can do that for the MC, I can't wait to see what your scenes look like. Maybe you'd feel comfortable showing me what other examples of art and story material you have?

Good afternoon! Thanks for your interest.
It'd be great if you could send me some of your drafts, I'd appreciate it very much!

The Maury Show and Hercules. That's pretty hilarious, but accurate haha

Here are some additional examples of my art:

I was too impatient to draw things, and forgot pacing here.


To prevent me from ranting, you'll have to be more specific on what sort of additional "story material" you want, because I could go on forever aaa. Perhaps email or skype is a better way to convey possibly spoiler-y info. You can find my email on my profile.

Thanks!

Hello there, Young Fish. New to the forum? Feel free to introduce yourself here.

On a more related note, your art is impressive and I'm sure you'll get plenty of writers jumping in wanting to lend a hand or a pen. If you'd like to you can post any of your ideas in Develop Your Story and you'll find free critique, advice and ideas from the writers here.

lol, love the summery so far  :thumbsup: I might not be what you're looking for but i'd still love to help. I'm pretty well when it comes to world-building and some other stuff, so if you're willing to do a bit of a back and forth i'd love to help in anyway I can. Also you don't need to pay me, you can save that for when you find the write your looking for. But i think I might take the friendship and memes  :D ...   :-\ and gum nobody ever pays me in gum  :glare: lol that last one was just a joke reference  :santa: but yeah if you wouldn't mind  having a free back and forward on your story please let me know ^_^)

Sorry for the late reply. The past week was really busy with work.

If your still interested, I sent a quick PM to you, since I'm notoriously bad with checking my email consistently, and I don't have a Skype. However, if you would prefer either of those to PM, let me know. I'd have no problem accommodating that  :)

I am also sorry about the late reply! Yes, I saw your message. PM works just fine for me, though I may respond to notifications/messages a bit late. Currently I'm trying to get a hold of this situation, since my tiny budget is being pounded by the sheer amazingness of you and other writers who have contacted me. I'm putting together a document to cover the story in a little more depth. After that, we'll see if the story still suits your tastes. I hope it does, since I look forward to working with you but y'know, different strokes for different folks. It's a chore to work on a project you're not excited about.

//So to anybody else who messaged me and has yet to receive a reply, I'm getting to it. Sorry bout that.

Thank you! And your prediction came true haha. I'll be sure to check out both of the topics you mentioned!

I'm glad you like it! New friends are always welcome. Feel free to PM me or email. I realize I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew here and trying to do "back and forth" with more than three people at a time is quite difficult, so discussion about the story will be a bit slow, but I'm glad to get to meet more people on this forum and I look forward to sharing memes.

Your fine. I'll be PMing you two links to some of my current work, since you asked. The first is a Google Doc full of raw spoiler and info about a projects I have been working on for a while now. The other links to my "Develop Your Story" thread. Both should show case my skills enough to give you an idea of how I write. They are drafts, so excuse any mess in them.

Between you and me, the money is a non-issue, since I genuinely like your idea and am looking forward to seeing it blossom into manga-form. If payment is still a concern, perhaps you would be willing to help me with a project of my own later? If it catches your interest.

I managed to wrangle a free chat room on a site I know that we can use to talk in. Let me know if you are still interested in proceeding with the project Young, and I can everyone the link

Hi!
I've been writing stories and fanfics for a while now, mostly anime related and posting them on Quotev so I guess I have a bit of experience in that area :$

Also, I really love your idea as well as your gorgeous artwork so I would love to help you develop your story as much as I can.  :dance:

Tbh I didn't really understood the Summary plot you gave. But I more than interested to work with you. I'm willing to hire "your service" to work for me in the near future if you don't mind.

Send me a more detailed synopsis on your work, so I could give you a professional analysis'  :read:
