okay, but i do recommend to get a little further along in the process before trying to hire an artist. we need to know more than just “comic to a fiction story” ! there needs to be a hook to get the potential artist interested in the first place. and it should ideally be a combo of good pay and story that they’d enjoy working on.
just speaking as a professional freelance artist myself, i wouldn’t by emailing in for a job with your current description just because it could end up being a total waste of time if the pay doesn’t meet my rates or if the project is a completely different wheelhouse that what i’d usually work in. it’s just not practical to hire anyone for a job when they don’t have any information on the job. sorry, not trying to sound harsh, but i hope that helps.
