Hello Newgrounders. Your old uncle Ozcar here. I’ve been in a journey for the last 2 years finding myself and I’ve started writing. I just finished my first book in November 2013 and I will publish it soon, first in Spanish and maybe soon in English too. Anyway, I’m looking for an art partner to draw my book’s characters. This is the first book of 10 I’m about to write, (I’ve written 2 so far and I’m about to finish the third) And I’m not kidding you: First one is a huge book (Around 140,000 words in it) and that's because I’m putting my soul in this thing. So now I’m looking for a person to draw 20 scenes of the first book before I publish it. I want to publish it in April so I’d need the drawings in the early days of March. Are you interested? Let me tell you about the book and if I still get your attention, I’ll tell you what I have in mind.
The book is called "The Diary of Andrea Fay Pollard "
Andrea is a seemingly ordinary 10 year old girl , but since she’s pretty smart, she skipped 2 years in school, going from Fourth grade of Elementary School to Seventh grade of Middle school in a totally new school. Besides having to learn to deal with bullying in her new school, she realizes that she can see and hear things that other people do not see, ghosts, demons and she can even see what other people think ... She even thinks that perhaps she is going crazy, but with the help of her new friends, she learns to understand her "gifts " to master them, use them to help others and even how to survive junior high school. This is basically the plot of the first book.
So, as I told you, I need an art partner. What do I need? A person that could draw the main characters and 20 scenes of the book. There will be money, of course. I’m offering $200US for the work, plus, I’ll give you full credit for the art in the book, your name (or nickname, whatever you ask) will be in the book and your contact info so other people can hire you in the future. Also, I’m thinking in publish a first edition of 3,000 books in Spanish and if the people likes it, I might do a second edition of 10,000. If the book gets good reception, I’ll hire someone to edit it and translate it in English, so it can be published in the US.
Are you still interested? Well, I’ll pick up an artist here. How? Easy. Show me your stuff. Draw one of my book’s characters or the three of them (Description of three of the main characters below) and post the drawing here.
1 - . Andrea Fay Pollard, she is the main character. She's 10 years old, her hair is brown, long enough to pass below her shoulders. She often combs it in a ponytail or brings it loose. She has hazel eyes (green and brown mix) she’s 132cms tall (4 feet and 4 inches). She usually wears jeans and short sleeve shirts. She does not like dresses and never plays with dolls.
2 - . Isis Romero. She’s a 12 year old girl, but she looks older (looks about 14 years) she’s a tall and skinny girl. In the beginning she’s the “bad girl” of the book and Andrea is afraid of her, but Isis also has psychic powers and eventually becomes friends with Andrea. She is thin, around 160cms height (5 feet and 3 inches), her hair is black color and straight, her skin is tanned, and her eyes are amber color. She’s the badass of the story, the anti-heroine. Keep this in mind, because she loves to kick other people’s ass (Literally) and she does it in the book many times, and she doesn't hesitate to do it, even to the teachers of the school. Isis loves to dress herself in jeans and short black sleeve shirts. When school is out, she likes to skateboard and play her electric guitar.
The most complicated could be Uzna. He is a guardian spirit that follows Isis and protects her all the time.
3 - Uzna. He is 220cms of height (7 feet, 3 inches) He is part human, lion, and eagle. Although her legs are like “human”, his feet are like an eagle, with talons. His trunk looks like a human trunk. His body is covered by dark blue feathers, except his chest, where you can see his muscles. His arms are like human arms, but instead of hands, he has lion claws. He has a tail, longer than his legs. In his back, he has eagle wings, each 3 meters long (9 feet, 10 inches long) when they're fully extended.
