In one fluid motion, Merciless slams the Young One hard into the side of the tree several times; each slam having more strength driving it. The final impact, Merciless releases his grip, dropping the Young One to his knees, only to be quickly kicked in the gut by a steel toed sabaton. The blow forces the air out from the Young One's lungs, which begins an equally violent coughing fit. Merciless turns towards Kendrick and tosses the Young One to the feet of the Dark Lord.
The Young One lays on the ground for moment, only able to cough. As the burning sensation in his lungs and throat dies down, he is finally able to catch his breath. Kendrick looks down and places a hand over his mouth, to cover up his distaste for the display of weakness in front of him.
Well? Have we learned something from this little... lesson on manners? I dearly hope that for your sake that you did. I would much prefer it that you try to act as civilized as you can. That way, I wouldn't be forced to take acti

An icy death grip finds it's way around the Young One's neck, firmly lifting him up off the ground. A sharp chilling sensation races down the Young One's spine; fulling awaking him from his earlier ordeal from the encounter with the creatures that had attacked him.
As the Young One's vision refocuses on his surroundings, he quickly realizes that the situation hasn't gotten any better. As he begins to struggle, trying free himself from the grip. He locks eyes with the Dread Knight holding him in the air. As the two stare at each other for a moment, the Dread Knight tilts his head to the side, in an attempt to understand the weak creature that he held in his hand. The Young One, unknowingly mimics his captors actions by trying his best to examine the Dread Knight before him.
W-what hell are you? choked words sputtered out from the Young One. The Dread Knight cocks his head back with a displeasing grunt at the question.
This Dread Knight was different from the rest; every aspe

Chapter 1 - Rebirth
Your body and soul, belongs to me Nevermore!
We are the Fates...
We see all that comes to past; we witness all that happens; we will perceive the consequences of all actions. With us, we carry the knowledge to change; but, only have the whisper to influence; this is our duty. Hear us now, Scholar, as the story unfolds before you...
We are the Fates...
On this cold night ; approaching the winter months; where snow begins to descend from the heavens; dancing elegantly in the sky, ever so delicately covering all in a soft blanket of cool tranquillity. The mountains themselves; hold their heads up high, welcoming the season...
All would be at peace if not for the wondering soul; desperately seeking out the prefect place to be lost; to rest his aching heart. It is on this winter night, the Yong One will find what he is shamefully looking for; a way out...
The Young Ones mind

The Young Ones vision started to tunnel around him; staring up at the cold pitiless black eyes of his attackers; every one of them peered in closer to see the pain they had caused in the blood shot eyes of their prey as he slowly died before them. The creatures were so entranced with their killing orgy, that they all missed the fact that something far more sinter then themselves moved towards them. The sound of rusty metal gliding against itself was the last thing the Young One heard before he black out.
The creatures stared at the Young One for a moment of disappointment. They had not been completely satisfied with their kill. Looking at one of another, they began to cry and gurgle in anger. The one creature holding down the Young Ones legs made an odd choking sound which was even odd to the others as they all stopped in a unified silence and looked at their kinsmen.
With the passing of a moment, the other creatures were sprayed with a thick black tar substance as the crea

Lost Memories - Rainy Day
-The Chance Meeting that sets in motion a thousand roads...
Standing outside his school, Nevermore holds his head high, watching the rain fall all around him in a beautiful symphony of calm calamity. Letting the soft pounding of the rain wash over him, Nevermore feels light in his chest as his heart pounds with the rain.
What a beautiful day... thinking to himself.
Its always been like this; the effect of the rain on Nevermores senses. For as long as he can remember, the rain brought about a calming effect. Looking around him, everything looks to be at peace. The colours seem to be cooler, softer, even sweeter in some regards. Its a terrible shame that Nevermore was the only one that could witness the beauty behind the darkness of the clouds. Oh well...
Nevermore, standing on the stone steps of the schools main entrance began to hold his hands out, letting the rain glide across his finger tips. Not noticing it; but a smile f

The Maiden draws out her sword and holds it up to the opening in the clouds, closing her yes; and then in her ancient language, she begins to chat a litany with a soft tone.
From the opening gate to the Heavens, a brilliant pillar of light rains down, descending onto the lifeless vessel of the Young One. The light only plays a small role on this grand stage; acting only as a candle in the window to help guide souls back from the abyss...
For the ritual to be complete, the Young One must find his way back. Not a small task for someone who so desperately wants to be lost...
The Maiden watches and waits...
Lying on th ground, the Yong One twitches and stirs as drops of rain land on his face. Shifting about, he slowly sits up rubbing the sleep out from his eyes. Struggling to focus, he feels as if awaking from what feels like a long and deep sleep.
His eyes quickly adjust to the dime light piercing through the fog that surrounds him. Looking about him, he is unable to recognize
Yes, I am back again. I am looking for a illustrator to continue on with a web series that I'm currently producing for my site (FYI - the site isn't up and running at the moment, looking at end of summer launch).
The name of the series is called, Fallen And Broken. You can easily find the plot premise here unforgiven-rage.deviantart.com… . Please have a read.
-The web series itself is black and white. Some colour will be needed from time to time, but only used as tool to draw attention or force a point (ie - blood).
- I'm looking for a flexible style between manga and western comics. You should be able to match up with the style that the first illustrator started. Examples with be shared through email. It's not important that the styles match up PERFECTLY.
- The aesthetic is... unique as far as I can tell. What I'm looking for is rough sketch feeling, something looks sorta incomplete. There wont be much need of hard solid lines. Again, hard lines will be used to draw attention and force a point.
- Heavy on the fantasy. Creatures, weapons, monsters, armour. Also, elements of sci-fi, tech and fire arms, vehicles. Also, there the series will have a strong elements of horror.
- A good deal of action and violence. It won't be ultra violent. Lots of sword play. Little to no gore. Not to say that there won't zero gore. I see gore as a tool that should be used only when needed. This goes for sex and nudity; however, relax, at the moment, I don't see the need for sex or nudity.
- You will only be asked and commissioned to do the pages. You wont do character designs. I want your focus on the pages. I'm HOPING to get a page per week. At the moment, the first chapter is done ( 16 pages ). So, we do have some breathing room.
- Lettering is part of the job. If you can't letter, don't apply.
- You will be commissioned per page. Paypal only. No points.
I will require a test commission or two before I decided if you are a fit for the project. It's important to me that we sync. After all, I'm the writer and editor for the web series and it's vital that we are able to work together and have good communication. Only way to see if it works, is by doing a few test commissions. Hell, you might not like working with me. Also, trust is equally important.
Just so you know, my first illustrator felt that it was time to move on to new projects. And as such, you will not be tied down to the project. If you wish to move onto something else, you are free to do so. I only ask that you finish the chapter that you started. That's my only set in stone rule at the moment. As long as you stay, you'll always have a commission waiting. This is a long term project. Long term sorta depends on how many pages you can pump out.
Also, it should be noted, this is my first serious project. I'm new to this, it's been a sharp learning curve. If you're a pro and have been doing for a long while, you might not want to jump on board, because this is an indie project of mine. At the moment, I'm paying for everything out of my pocket. For me, this is a labour of love. This means the budget is tight ( I'm just going to throw this out there, if you wish to volunteer your time and talents, I am totally ok with that ).
I'm not going to ask or state what my budget is. I want to try work with YOUR rates. Team dynamics is more important to me. If we work well together, I'll find away around the budget to make it work. Also, I don't want to short change anyone and I don't want to insult anyone. Also, I just don't think it's appropriate to discuss payment in a open thread.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please share them. Hope to hear from you shortly. Message or note.
