Seeking new Pencilers!

Posted by CelestOrion - August 11th, 2021


Hey there, again, Newgrounds!


We recently had a couple of pencilers retire from our long-running comic project in order to focus on school and personal projects, and we wanted to raise attention that we've got open availability for new pencilers to join the fray!


Development is still smooth for the issues currently in development (Issues 7-12), while issues 13-16 are being written, and side-issues within universe are 2-4 being written. We've simply hit a point where we're powering through on the writing field, and lacked the penciler power to keep progress transitioning smoothly!


If you were interested in being a penciler for the team, you'd need to audition with two mock-comic pages to show your understanding of panel layout, character and setting dynamics, and artistic style. We'd also prefer people who audition to know how to both draw "Sonic-styled characters" and humans, as both exist within this universe. Auditions would not need to be inked or colored, but if you were wanting roles in the project for such, you are welcome to submit those, as well!


Auditions would be posted within our public Discord server under the #art-auditions-only channel, where our team of editors can review and provide input on the audition, any sort of constructive critique if needed, etc.


Below are examples of progress on the next batch of issues, to show varying artist styles, levels of progress, etc:


Issue 7:

Issue 10:

Issue 11:

All issues that we create are dubbed and posted on both Newgrounds and YouTube, so if you want to be involved in a long-running comic (you're not required to be a permanent participant, but we welcome new faces who stick around the madhouse) to be hosted here, join up today and show us what you've got! We're always taking auditions, hope to see you there!

Hi,

thanks for the comment :) You draw comics very nicely! Respect! :) He remembers those times when he was a kid when he watched / played Sonic :P

Regards,
Mejson

Thanks! I'm not the artist for the comics, though, we have a full team working on them, I just lead the project and contribute to writing and brainstorming, haha.

@Mejson @CelestOrion, Ok, fun too! Keep it up! :P

This could be such an opportunity for artists (or penciliers),

Unfortunately for me I'm still learning on drawing digitally, the best I can do now is traditional sketching, but I haven't even tried drawing Sonic himself.

We accept traditional artists, as well, provided you're able to scan in artwork for inkers to work on. You could consider joining the server and making use of the art-help channels if it's something you wanted to learn or practice on!
