Here at Ex Dynamis Chaos we believe in giving opportunities to amateur creators to improve both their skills and portfolios. Mostly because I, Malcolm R. Terzich, have far too many stories than I’ll ever have time to draw myself. If you are an artist who has little to no experience in sequential art and possibly isn’t much of a writer than I can hook you up with a script to a short that fits you. To qualify you must be able to at least pencil or ink (traditional or digital are acceptable) the work. Colors are optional, but this isn’t available to those that are solely colorists unless they come with an illustrator or get permission from a previous artist to color their already published short. You also do not need to be able to letter unless that is also something you are trying to learn. I will handle that otherwise.
The shorts vary in genre and length, between one to ten pages, and are all connected in someway to the world of Ex Dynamis Chaos. There are also no deadlines since this is a learning experience. During the process, I will act more as an editor than the writer and give you critiques that I feel are within your grasp based on you output. You will have freedom to change aspects such as panel count and formation, camera angle, and any part of story execution as long as all the same the information from the script is still conveyed.
You will have the right to host the short you make anywhere you wish, as well as selling prints if you so wish, though we will retain that right as well for any script I write. The only requirement for crediting posts is a link back to the homepage of this website. You as an artist will also be promoted in the post of your short with a short profile [if desired] and links to your social media and/or websites of your choice.
To inquire about the program send an email to email@example.com with the subject “Ex Dynamis Chaos Contribution Program”, “EDK Collab”, or something along those lines. Be sure to include your name (or preferred pseudonym), a little about yourself as an artist, what you plan to do (pencil, ink, color, letter, etc), and what you are looking for in genre and length (or a specific EDK story to work in if you have one in mind).
