Why is Mad Cave Accepting Comic Book Artists Submissions?
Yes, it’s true Mad Cave Studios is accepting comic book artists submissions and the reason why is because we value skills that take dedication, hard work, and unquestionable talent. That’s especially true when it comes to comic book art. We understand the difficulties of trying to break into the comics industry as an artist. Putting in hours of work just to put it on social media to grow your following, going to conventions just to show people your portfolio, and even messaging editors directly to get your work in the right hands.
That’s why Mad Cave Studios is trying to make the process simpler by uniting writers and artists to work on 4 unannounced project from inside the cave. Mad Cave Studios’ goals with this talent search are to nurture growth within the industry we love and to give a chance to aspiring artists so we can ensure the future of comics books as a medium.
What does Mad Cave look for in a comic book artist?
Comic books are, at their core, a visual medium and Mad Cave is built on the foundation of making the most beautiful comics in the game. A comic book artist is as much a storyteller as the writer, someone who can control pace and control the emotion in a scene with just a look from a character. The perfect candidate has to show us that they are completely comfortable with the medium while displaying dynamic inks, stunning color, and great visual worldbuilding.
