Normally I wouldn't do this but I feel like I'm out of options. I always had the dream to write comic books. I always wanted to write an independent comic like Saga or Sex Criminals. Unfortunately I have the artistic talent of a lobster with Parkinson's disease. I have a few friends who are good artist but they are either too busy or too unmotivated to help me.
I decided that my best option is to turn to crowd funding so that I can hire a semi decent artist and cover printing costs and such. To do that though I'm going to need some concept art for the characters I write. I can't have a project for a comic without some decent art it would never get rolling. I was hoping there were some artist on FJ that could help me by doing some concept art. If this project takes off I'll make a separate book with nothing but concept art by those who helped me. All credit will go the artist and whatever portfolio they have online will be credited as well. Also any piece they work on can go into their portfolio it belongs to them. If you are interested please send my a private message with a link to your work. If we decide to move forward I will send out character profiles I have already written out.
If you don't have a talent for art out you can still help out. Just mention a user that could help out in the comments so they can see this post and decide if they would like to help me or not.
Please FJ I really don't know where else to turn, and everyday I don't move towards my goal is driving me nuts

ScottP is already helping me but there are a lot of character profiles and I was hoping I could get a few more people to help out so that it would lighten his load and the project would move along a bit faster.

Hey, so I'm an independent game developer in need of some tips. Anybody have some experience in animating pixel art? I'm pretty decent at drawing pixel art, but my animation skills are very basic.

I guess it doesn't have to be restricted to pixel art, as long as it follows a similar route (spritesheets, whatever else).

Thanks in advance.

look back at the classics like mega man and mario for basic shit. also a fairly easy tool to use is piskelapp.com . super simplified animation and you can add as many frames as you want and see previews of the animation. game maker has a fairly decent pixel animation function as well although you know....its game maker. but it should work none the less. what games have you worked on? or are you still new to it?

Thanks for replying. I'm using Paint.NET with an animation plugin, so I'm good on the software side. Great idea, triskett. I have a GBA emulator, so I'll slow down the game speed to learn from that. I'm still working on my first game Shameless self-promotion: enckling.com , but it's coming along very well.

My biggest issue is getting animation techniques down, such as animation flow and efficiency. I'm getting pretty good at drawing pixel art, it's just the animation that is really suffering. I'll definitely need practice it to get better, just thought I'd ask here first for some beginner tips.

The picture is something I drew a month ago -- first living thing I've drawn, and I'm pretty happy with how it looks. I tried to make a walking animation, but failed pretty badly. That was how I knew I sucked at animation.

Looks good so far. I'd say to make the logo a bit smaller, it's taking up too much room. Also, the back ground isn't consistent and that's distracting. The reflections of the rings are cut off, I'm not sure if that was intentional but it's quite noticeable.

the reflection was meant like this. About the Logo, thats true and the background was pretty much annoying to make because I had a, like 10p x 40p big rectangle of that background and didnt know how to make it consistent.

She is coming out with such crazy colors! it will soon be ready.

I love this change, not using the vector layer is making me feel much better and now with the clipping layer thing, I can paint my lines with gradients and very specific parts so is a pleasure to draw... I'm coloring this with manga Studio in the stupid size of 6000x6000 even if at the end, I'll only share 2000 x 2000 or less

I made a crude paint edit to show you what I'd do differently. I just made the mouth slightly smaller, moved the eyes closer together, and removed the eyebrows (more of a stylistic choice though really, I was just trying to make look more like a wolf).

It looks good, but it has that feeling that something is wrong, but i don't exactly know that.
I think it might be the mouth or the eyes, those don't look quite right.
