    The thing is I want to turn it into a manga so I need a manga style artist... I need to get down the basics on what the readers would want the characters to look like. I wrote the story now I am leaving the designing to everyone else... I would like to do a poll on the resuls for each character that I like to see which ones are favored moer but I just don't know how to post a poll.

If it is too much to ask you can post pictures you find in coherence with the description i will provide after i edit the post. I would like that actually. Thanks for the info tho, ^^
    Usually when a character bios are provided and someone is requesting a manga artist, it's for penciling/inking a full-scale manga. That typically involves money. Why would you just want pictures? That's what I'd like to know. Then the only person who has a vauge idea of what the manga WOULD look like (besides the artist) is you. Hell, give me some time, I'll draw you pictures; but I want credits for them.

    Re: Requesting a manga artist.

    My suggestion would be to go the way of a Webcomic, it's cheaper in the end

    Yeah, but starfire said she needs something to look at while drawing, otherwise she can't draw it.

    Still offerin' help for credits over here! ^_^
    It's technically free help. You're not spending money that way.

    I am requesting pictures from everyone so I know what you like... and so i can base my manga on that. It is not what I want it is what YOU want. As the reader you get to enjoy the style that you think the character should have and been seen in, and not what I want it to be... This is a readers choice kinda thing.
    I don't know how to give credits... and yes you are correct. You pick the style, I adapt it, and I draw it.


    Do you get paid for a web comic?

    Not sure about web-comics and payment, I know most ARE usually free. Giving creds: Just go to User CP/Manage creds. Easy. Anywho, it's not really about what style the artist chooses, because more often than not, that artist is already accustomed to his/her own style of art.

    So, it's basically YOUR choice in the long run (if you get more than one person volunteering for this project).

    First of all, don't let people choose for you. If you're the writer, you should be able to have enough creative control to choose who's/which art you're gonna use.

    I'll print your character bios today and start sketching, however, I'm not submitting just half or a portion. I'm goin' the full length. You'll get views from different angles for each character. I don't half-work, so I won't expect to do half and get paid half. The minute my art is sent to you, is when I am done and will await full credit payment.

    This is a pretty big project (considering I've gotta take time out of my own projects), so PM me and we'll talk payment details.
