I think there is a topic where you can request character drawings.

It's fine to use This section for that but not new topic for each request.  Make sure to all details in the topic.

Also you will need to give credits for character designer it everything goes as you want.

Senpai, how exactly can we ask an artists. I'm new at this whole posting thing and it's kind of frustrating 'cause I keep getting lost. Anyways, I have a few chapters and I need to look for an artist. But I not sure how to post these kind of things. Like do I say I need help from a artist then post a summary of my story or what?  :notunderstand:

Well you're already in the right section. You just need to make a topic in this section for the project. If you haven't already put up your story on the site you should do that and link the wanted topic there. After all, no artist is going to be willing to work with you on your word alone.

Yeah, that's what I'm having trouble with. So I make a topic in this section, but how do i put my story on here and where?

Well for the story you want to go to either the develop your story section or manga creations. Depending on where it is development wise. Just start a topic specifically for the story and just copy and paste it directly into the posts. (keep in mind it'll need some formatting cause the forum doesn't directly translate). So that way you can get feedback and stuff. But you should make a separate topic in this section about looking for an artist, with a link to the other topic so potentials can see the story.

This is for all the newbies who rush here looking for instant manga artist. Guys this not gonna happen. How can someone trust a stranger who comes here and demand an artist ? Before asking for an Artist earn trust.

1) Goto Welcome Center and Introduce your self.

2) Check Manga Art Gallery and comment and these gallery topics.

3) If you are an writer then post your stories here. Lets Artists to see if you have still they looking for

Guys please listen to Hasith-sempai, artists aren't objects you can get just by asking, remember that it takes years of vigilant practice for an artist to hone their skills, please respect that. And now with the shonen jump contest starting, people are flooding in thinking they can win just by coming up with a story idea, but that's the easy part of it, the hard part is expressing scenes in the manga in a way that the readers see it how the writer saw it when making the story, it's not as easy as just having a good idea, you have to deliver it well, anyone can come up with ideas, but a writer has to be able to convey it adequately, if he cannot do that, he's as good as an artist who can only draw stick men and smiley suns. But my advice is to rather team up with a noob if you're one, cuz this way you won't be faced with an experience gap and you'll make a good friend in the process :thumbsup: Also, don't go thinking you can make it just cuz you do well in essays at school and people tell you that you have a good imagination. Writing manga is the same as writing movies, if you think you're the next Stephen Spielburg then go ahead, but always remember, never, ever, give up on your dreams :smile:

This update really clarifies the rules and sets some solid guidelines but there's goiing to be people who just join the forum without introducing themselves and making a topic here for an artist as their first action. That's inevitable because many are either too eager to get into a collaboration with little knowledge of the field's procedures or they feel they can't be bothered with things like introduction because it's too tedious.

I'm just saying it'd be nice if there was some place for outsiders of the forum to post professional commissions or contact you to inform us like the one for Joue le Jeu instead of making a topic that nobody is going to take seriously because of their lack of discipline in following rules they may or may not read.

These rules are to both for those newbies who rush here to find an artist and other members who get offended by seen these new members asking for artist to work for free.

Usually these new members have no idea what they are asking for and most of them are not serious enough too unfortunately But we don't want to discourage them but everyone rallying against them either.

So when they put its paid or free in title experienced artist can stay out of it if it's a free commission which they don't want to participate. and a mod or other member can just nicely remind the newbie how it should work or ask them to read rules and change the topic.

Okey this has become a real headache. People don't read rules and then ask why than happened why this happened.  From now on If I see any Artist request topics which're not comply with these rules Will either delete or lock the topic depending on situation.

Plz other older members  do not start dialogs in these incomplete or improper topics. Except for pointing out to this post so topic starters could read rules and change their threads.

i feel the artist request is a bit of a waste...it often comes down to one person coming in and requesting an artist for what probably will have nothing to do with MR.
Stop playing victim....you know what you did.

I had another thing you could add to the to the list.

-If for some reason you are too scared to post your story even with written proof then write up a quick story (because writers need to be able to make new ideas easily).  That way it shows off your writing skills and there wouldn't be any risk of losing the big story (again, we wouldn't even bother with trying to steal a story)

Ask me if you need constructive criticism on art or panel layout.  Practice and constructive criticism are the fastest ways to improve
