Colorists Needed

Published by at 1:29 am under Art,Comic Book Art

This is page 12, where the two main characters (the accountant and the mutant alligator) meet for the first time. 

Panel 1. Agent Black frowns at a prominent sign that says…

WELCOME, VISITORS. DO NOT PROCEED WITHOUT ID TAG– YOU WILL BE SHOT. (Fine print) And/or immolated, irradiated and disintegrated as necessary.

Panel 2. Agent Black sits down at a chair near the corner. He’s holding a book and briefcase.

Panel 3. He starts reading his book. The title is “Surviving in a New Workplace.”

Panel 4. We’re reading the same page he is. It’s a mushy list of tips for the first day:

  • Show up on time (this is checked off).
  • Introduce yourself to everyone you meet.
  • Don’t forget to rehearse.  Practice makes perfect!
  • Remember to deliver a crisp and firm handshake!
  • Visualize your success!

Panel 5. Agent Black tries rehearsing his introduction.
Note: this should be from the same camera-angle as panels 6-7, where Agent Orange lowers himself upside-down from the ceiling and surprises him from behind. Part of the surprise is that Agent Black is sitting in a place where he should be able to see anyone coming.
AGENT BLACK: Hello. Handshake. I’m Agent Black, your new partner. I’m very enthusiastic about this new position.

Panel 6. Same shot. However, this time, we see Agent Orange upside down right behind Agent Black. He’s lowering himself down from the ceiling on a rope, ninja-style. Agent Black does not notice.
AGENT BLACK: Although I did not investigate any violent crimes at the IRS, I’m a fast learner and I’m eager to take the next step in my career.

Panel 7. Still upside down, Agent Orange taps a claw on Black’s shoulder. Make Agent Black look a bit confused to show that he feels it. He’s definitely not expecting a tap given that he’s sitting in a place where people shouldn’t be behind him.

Panel 8. Agent Black turns around and sees Agent Orange hanging right behind him.
AGENT ORANGE: Greetings, partner!

    Hello. I’m looking to become a colorist. I’m not a pro yet, but I’m looking to get into the industry. Are you still looking for a colorist?

    Please let me know.

    Sorry, Al. I’ve already filled the position. However, if you’d like to leave a link to your art portfolio, I may call on you in the future.
