Submission Guidelines for AC Comics

Submission Guidelines

For Pencillers, Inkers, Letterers and Colorists:

We really love and appreciate getting enthusiastic artist submissions from potential freelancers, including pencillers, inkers, letterers and colorists wanting to do comic books, but please DO NOT send ANY attachments to this email address.

 

If you have your art posted somewhere online on a site that you could send us a link to, that would be great!

Please email links to your artwork posted somewhere online (for example, on a showcase/gallery website  or a dropbox/wesendit/etc.. file  to show off your artwork)  and we’ll check them out.

 

We would like you to be able to demonstrate some ability to produce reasonably effective comic book continuity ( Six or seven pages utilizing multiple panels telling a story or sequence of a story) with attractive people/superheroes/superheroines.

 

Ideally, we would like to see four or five of those pages with depictions of mundane everyday scenes to give us an idea of the quality of the comic artwork by itself before we make a decision to move the discussion along.

We are looking for sequential storytelling in comic book art. We’ve gotten several people sending us “paintings” lately –static, digitally over-rendered  generic straight-on shots of individual characters and being indignant when we’ve told them “No, this is wrong.” We want to see comic book artwork.

While we do not strictly have a “House Style”, we do prefer material that will lend itself to “classic American style comic books”.  If you can draw attractive people using sequential storytelling , we can probably find a place somewhere your material will work.

  • Pencils: should be sequential and un-inked–if you have  inked samples of your pencils, please include both the inked and the UN-inked pages.
  • Inks: Samples should be sequential pages–if you have  inked samples, please include both the inked and the UN-inked pencilled pages.
  • Color: Color should be directed towards print publication.  We would like to see samples of included of both  finished tones with special FX and preliminary flats.
  • Lettering:  Should have some basic display samples as well as balloon lettering.  Show that you can handle standard comic book dialogue and sound FX. (We do not use lower case fonts unless a character is whispering!)
