At present I'm doing a recruitment drive to get some extra hands on board for Nova619 and Cohort Comics. This is aimed at those DA'ers who are not professional artists. This is for those of you who are learning to either pencil, ink (digital), flat and color.
Since I began Nova619 5 years ago we've had around 100 participants take part in the project producing the fan comic featuring Marvel's Nova the Human Rocket - online here at DA (Nova Prime, Cosmic Book News and Nova Prime Page. A small core team have remained on the project even to this day and they are an absolute wonderful bunch of folks to work with who right now are working on original projects for our Cohort Comics label.
We've had contributors from all over the globe (well except the North and South Poles!). Our "seasoned" veterans have gone on to do stuff for various indie publications from Greyhaven, Arcana and others.
Nova 619 and Cohort are strictly non-pay/non profit. I know this will put off some but at the end of the day those like myself who do this purely take part for the enjoyment of producing comics and have a go encouraging those who just want to have a go do a few pages and that's it - no strings attached. Everything is done voluntarily. We work alongside other groups such as Comic Team Up who have exact same goals and aspirations for new talents wanting to improve their skills.
Right now I have slots still open for our Early/Late 2014 seasons for Nova619 and a number of slots open to pitch ideas for original projects for our Cohort Presents Anthology Title. If you want to take part or just wish to have more details then contact me via note or visit either Nova Prime novaprime.deviantart.com/where

Look forward to anyone who'd like to have a go! Daz
