“Warder”—Artist Needed

warderad_01_JPEG

Desirée Lee and I are both bestselling, award-winning writers. Between the two of us, we have authored nearly twenty books, over thirty short stories, and a number of non-fiction articles. I’m actually a contributing writer for the paranormal news website All About Occult. Desirée and I have also branched out into writing screenplays, and comic book projects. A few years ago I was hired to write a 3-issue-long miniseries called “Ultimate Boy” by the project creator. Far as I know, he’s never published the project, but that doesn’t change the fact that I was hired, and paid, to script all three issues.

More recently, Desirée and I launched “MoonWraith” as a webcomic. It’s a hit, with over 84,000 hits thus far. “MoonWraith” was originally intended as a television series. It has been Optioned as a film, but that ultimately fell through. Currently, we have another potential Executive Producer looking at “MoonWraith” as a film, a film series, or a TV series. We also have a list of people interested in being cast or crew on such a project. A couple of those people are names we’re sure you’ll all recognize if you heard them! Hopefully there’ll be more to report on that front in the near future!

Even more recently, Desirée and I started up an ongoing, bi-monthly science fiction comic book series called “Confluence“. Issue #1 is out. Issue #2 will be for sale as soon as it’s finished going through IndyPlanet’s listing procedures.

Now, Desirée and I are looking for an artist, or an art team, for a high fantasy comic book series called “Warder”. Please see the above graphic for information on that project. “MoonWraith” and “Confluence” are done solely by Desirée and myself using CG artwork. However, we simply don’t have the time to produce CG artwork for another series. Though she and I will still be writing and lettering “Warder”. And the series will be published by Umbral Press, as is “Confluence”.

We’re looking forward to hearing from interested artists or art teams regarding this project!

Mature Audiences Only—”MoonWraith”

Page_17_Web

Sorry to jump back to another “MoonWraith” post after doing so many of them recently. I feel that this one is needed, though. Desirée Lee and I have no wish to offend anyone with our work. It happens with all writers, but it isn’t intentional—we want people to enjoy our work, not be bothered by it. Still, “MoonWraith”, the hit webcomic that we write, and in all other ways produce, has that affect on some people.

“MoonWraith” is, as we have said repeatedly in the past, for mature audiences only. “MoonWraith” deals with werewolves. As a result, the webcomic is often violent. And there is sometimes nudity in it, as well. There’s actually a prolonged nude scene playing out in the webcomic right now. As most times only one page of the comic per week is posted, on Mondays, to be exact, it can take a while to get through a single scene sometimes. Because of this, what might only be two or three pages at a time involving nudity can last for two or three weeks. So, it can sometimes seem that “MoonWraith” is full of nudity, when it’s really only a scene here and there. Same goes for the violence. “MoonWraith” is character-driven. But, given the situations Kizzy Faw is dealing with in the story, realistically, there is violence and nudity. Given time, as the plot develops more, expect there to also be some sexual situations playing out in the webcomic.

We’ve said it before, but should reiterate it—”MoonWraith” is a mature-audiences webcomic. It contains violence and nudity. The comic probably isn’t safe for work. It certainly isn’t meant for children. Adults only, please, and enjoy at www.MoonWraith.com!

Artist Call

Desiree Lee and I are still looking for artists, or art teams, for two comic book projects. One of those projects, “Warder”, is high fantasy. The other is titled “Ravenesque”, and is modern-day urban fantasy. Please see just below for information regarding “Warder”.

Payment terms for “Ravenesque” would be the same.

Both series feature female protagonists. The following shouldn’t need to be stated, it ought to be pure common sense, but repeated occurrences of the problem force me to say it: Anyone even remotely interested in doing artwork duties for either “Warder” or “Ravenesque” needs to be very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females. Not to be blunt, but, if you’re not very proficient at, and fully comfortable with, drawing females, please do not waste your time, or ours, by by submitting work to us for either of these projects.

Artists interested in submitting for either series need to also be proficient and comfortable drawing an array of fantasy creatures – dwarfs, faeries, dragons, trolls, elves, gnomes, leprechauns, brownies, spirit beings, etc.

Please use the submission e-mail address listed above on the “Warder” ad flier for “Ravenesque”, too.

We look forward to reviewing the submissions!
