    Howdy, folks;

    Allow me to interduce myself. I'm Harveyjames, a comic book artist. You can see examples of my work at http://www.harveyjamestm.com and at my livejournal, http://harveyjames.livejournal.com.

    I'm looking for someone to make a source engine map for a book I'm working on right now. What I want is not really complicated by the standards of TF2 maps- in fact, I was told it could be done in about 3 hours. Wow! I basically need it as a drawing aid- something I can take screenshots of from whatever angle I want, copy and paste into my pages and then draw over, inserting characters and objects by hand-drawing them. I see it as being a little bit like the working process for the popular manga GANTZ, except without the stupid.

    I can't offer much in return- artists don't have much money, y'see- but you'll get a credit in an honest-to-goodness published comic book, which will look great on your CV- and if you really impress me there's every chance I'll want to work with you again when I do have some dough. If you think you're up to it, send me an email at jamesharvey@catjams.com, maybe with some screenshots of maps you've made, etc - or reply in a pm, whatever works for you.

    By the way, the turnaround for this needs to be quick! So apply right away if you think you can help.

    Thanks for reading!

    Is it required that the person needs to be able to texture/model?
