Traditionally inked comic-style art

1


1 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Jul 14, 2017

I will make a traditionally hand-inked comic-book style page using black ink with brushes and pens.

Using reused or recycled art boards, I create original pieces in black and white. The final artwork can then be digitally enhanced black-and-white, monotone or full color. Single illustration or divided into panels (based on your script). Each panel is almost like an entire illustration so bear that in mind if you want to request two or more "boxes" (panels) on a page.

The average time is about 7 simbi for a basic full color illustration but it could take less time (without background for example).

The traditional artwork size is about 10" x 15" on an 11"x17" art board. 17"x11" landscape format, or any orientation on smaller art board also works. Let me know your preference. Smaller work can often take less time.

A digital version will be sent to you over WeSendIt/Google Drive/e-mail.

The illustration board (the original artwork) is for you to keep or auction/sell, though I'd ask that you please chip in some help with transportation or mailing if you live far outside the Camelback area of Phoenix. Gas and postage are both pricey.

Please see my item "Mail original art board" in order to help with postage and receive the item in the mail:

Please see my item "Hand deliver original art board" in order to help with car/fuel costs:

Details:
I am happy to take requests for your favorite character or your original character.
By default, I won't be doing heavy background work unless you ask me.
Most any kind of content (G/PG/R/X or abstract) content is okay, but please no gore and no hate.
I will make the digital print-size file in lush full color if you request. This probably takes a few extra simbi.

Please note that while I faithfully try to "get into character", it will still be my own personal styles and that's hopefully why you want my services. :)

Example (not definitive) costs:

Basic hand-inked (pencil, brush and ink, technical pen) illustration; 3 hours = 3 simbi
Same as above, but detailed background; additional 2 to 4 hours = 5 to 7 simbi
All of the above, plus full color digital file; additional 2 to 4 hours = 7 to 11 simbi
All of the above, plus a story (total 4 panels on a single page) with hand-lettered text; additional 8 hours = 15 to 19 simbi

Each project is different. It all depends on what you want, and I am happy to discuss it in detail so that you are satisfied with the trade. The less flexibility I have as an artist, the higher the cost in hours. The more freedom I have, the lower in cost.

While you will come to own the artwork for your own use or personal representation, this artwork is not licensable and cannot be used for a business, nor can you claim credit for making it. Please honestly represent how you acquired the work if asked, and enjoy it! Thank you! (This is a sensitive kinda artist-person thing, I guess, but also basic professional manners.)

If you are interested in me fully illustrating a story of several pages, that *might* be out of the scope of this offer (but it might not) so feel free to ask.

Training & Qualifications


I have a degree in comic art and have been making my own comics and animations since age 7. I have self-published over two dozen books and professionally hand inked over 1000 pages of comic art.

For examples of my past and present work, please see: www.maxeem.com

Availability & Preferences


If I am not too busy, I should be able to finish your piece in a little less than a week after we finish discussing what you want.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Maxeem Konrardy

About me? Well I will give you a Simbi-me for this site. I want to learn survival and sustainability skills, I want to give, I want to be able to get by without owning a car or a cell phone or a ho...use (Okay so far!) but if I become responsible for things that I didn't intend to, I want them to be shared and special and inspiring of new better ways of doing it. Too much toxic waste and greed and sense of entitlement on the planet. I feel like we all co-care for this world and we should be responsible with our power and privilege so that life is nurtured on every level. I want to share my skills and encourage others to do the same so that technological knowledge doesn't get stuck in an elite economic sphere, but instead is shared with everyone equally to create opportunity and egalitarian situations. I want to express myself as an artist and be an artistic supporter of dreams and optimism. So alright, I believe in maintaining a little mystery and play —put to good use, not to deceive or dominate. To be a true optimist I must understand difficult truths and not ignore them; to develop solutions to problems with others involves constant vigilance for the right opportunities for sharing, appropriate communication, laughter, patience (with others and one's self) and not dominating with a single idea of what is right. I mess up a lot, but that's how I learn. And I won't give up!show more
