I am looking for an artist to work with who is able to make illustrations of my original fantasy characters. These illustrations would be displayed on an author website that I am currently building. I'm looking for an artist proficient in manga style illustrations with a touch of realism. I can provide examples of the style I am looking for.

This has the potential to be a long-term gig, but can also be short-term. As well as a solid illustrator, I am looking for someone who is willing to work on new projects with a good attitude as I am an aspiring author who is just building a platform.

If you have other skills such as creature design or map drawing, those will be great assets. I will potentially also be looking for someone to work with on those aspects as well and it would be ideal to be able to collaborate with one artist as opposed to many.
