Wild Sphere is seeking a Lead Artist for its upcoming webcomic, its second flagship product (The original flagship product is a roleplaying game). In terms of style, we'll be looking to “Cowboy Bebop” and “Battle Angel” by Kishiro Yukito. We are considering a film noir-type high contrast black and white style similar to the pictures in the introductory segment of “Cowboy Bebop”. In terms of production design, we'll be looking to “Blade Runner”, and in terms of mood and atmosphere, we'll be looking to “Sin City”.

The company will provide the script, and Character and Production Designs.

The setting is a Space Western with hard sci-fi elements set in an alternate future, something of a combination of "Mobile Suit Gundam" and "Cowboy Bebop". The hallmarks we hope to establish are cool settings and characters, eye-popping artwork, intelligent writing, wry humor, and biting social/political commentary. The products are aimed towards a mature (18-45), intelligent, sophisticated audience. The artwork is PG-13 (no fan service).

This is a small, but growing and focused company, and we are willing to take all necessary time to find the right people. We’re looking for people whose head and heart are in the right place, as opposed to individuals who would look at this as “another job”. We’ve had a lot of success with candidates who are current university-level students (though not necessarily Art majors).

These are offers for freelance Work-For-Hire. However, it is paid, the pay is Fair Market Value (based on experience and work rendered), and, depending on the quality and timeliness of work rendered, successful candidates may be able to expect regular Work-For-Hire.

Strong preference for those with at least a working knowledge of anime/manga.

Please submit a cover letter and a detailed summary of experience, references, knowledge of anime (including favorite animes/manga), salary history, salary requirements, and either a link to an online portfolio (preferred) or attach sample art (not preferred), especially prior storyboards and webcomic work.

Please email all replies to wsartwork@yahoo.com and include “Lead Webcomic Artist” in the subject line.

To look at the first completed Character Designs for the webcomic or for more background information about the setting, please visit:
