Is not like we never do it.. but the worst thing you can ask about is is "can you do a comic of character X having sex with character Y?" ...that's silly ..i don't need random couple ideas... i don't care those, don't even bother to ask me, i'll ignore it (too much messages like that everydays to bother on reply over and over.. i'm on many sites at the same times and i'm spammed with those silly questions everydays"
BUT... i'm always interested on serious comics projects.. people who want to write the stories.. not give me random ideas and wash their hands off the project.. months ago a friend asked me "can you do a comic with Shadow and Maria" ..and i told her.. "sure!" (without even asking details, becouse she was my friend)... "just write the script and i'll do it..." and she told me "uhh.. i don't want to write the script..." i only smiled and told her .."you are asking me to do a over 100 hours work and i told you yes, and i asked you to do a work that will take you 10, 5, or even a single hour work if you are good, but you can't...."
I respect writers.. there's very good writers indeed, some of them deserve to be payed for their work (like i told to my friend) ..but of course if someone will do the work for free i'll prefer to work with him... and seriously, to write a 10 pages script (in the format i ask...) will normall take less than 5 hours... less than a hour if you have the idea in mind already... work on the comic will take me between 9-10 hours PER PAGE average...
but still there's a little chance we can do it, ONLY if you want to write it on script format .. not like a story/fanfic... (should email me in case of examples) .... ALSO.. the series must not be overdone cuz people will not care about our work between a sea of artists doing the same (like very popular animes) (tought a exception is Sonic, becouse we are identified as sonic artists, and we have a site dedicated to that).. also the contrary case.. series very obscure/unknown that nobody will care to read.... if people want to send me their scripts it shouldn't include crossovers, or weird fetishes, fan characters... if you do all those steps i believe there's still 20% of chances of doing your comic project for free... in order to not waste your time it will be better if you tell me your idea first (offering to do the script) so i can tell you if i'm interested or not... never start with "can you do...."
That's the reason why you saw me doing some comics of Dragonballfan or Dr?Aryu (who is an excellent writer) for free constantly... becouse they take the job to write the scripts.. and follow those rules.
