Hire Freelance Manga Artists

Manga is a form of graphic novels or comics that has originated from Japan and is a very popular art form in the country. It may be used to depict stories in several different genres such as romance, comedy, action, adventure, fantasy, horror and science fiction. Currently, manga books are not just limited to Japan, but are actively translated into other languages and sold worldwide. They are usually a collection of short stories published in manga magazines and are created in episodes where each story is continued in the next issue of the magazine. Popular manga series may also be animated and anime creators develop manga stories into animations that are eventually released on Japanese television. Anime creators particularly develop animations for Japanese film and television for the purpose of entertainment of adults as well as children.

What Manga Artists Do?

Manga artists typically work within a team of writers, editors and assistants to create and develop stories in the form of manga comics. A lot of people hire manga artists to work with their story concept and convert it into a suitable series of episodes to be published in a manga magazine. They work on the entire layout and artwork, set the direction and pace of the story, and visualize characters and backdrops that suitably fit the context of the story. They decide on the length and content of the dialog between characters so that it fits with the illustrations made for a particular scene. They also take care of technical processes such as inking, lettering, shading, sketch work, cameo art and computer-rendered imagery.

If you are considering a manga artist for hire, you can hire a freelancer online to collaborate with you on your story concept. However, you need to ensure that your freelancer has:

  • A strong understanding of the history, culture and requirements of manga art, and can effectively create graphics pertaining to the art form.
  • An extensive portfolio of various manga creations of characters, scenes and short stories.
  • Relevant experience in working as an assistant or intern with a professional manga artist and is proficient in the tricks of the trade.

Qualifications of Manga Artists

It is ideal that your freelancer has:

  • A formal education in fine arts, literature or writing, with a proven track record in creating story concepts and developing them in the style of manga art.
  • Several years of experience in working with established manga artists and knowledge of relevant design software.
