You can find artists on social media by posting a job ad or reaching out directly with a message. You might even find someone in your network who is looking for this kind of work or willing to do it as a favor if they love your style.

Some comic book conventions also have their own online directories where you can post ads for free or pay an entry fee to get listed (and maybe even featured). There are also websites like The Blacklist that specialize in connecting creators with art professionals for hire (from writers to designers) through public job postings where anyone can read about what needs doing and apply directly from the site itself.

Search Social media hashtags

Social media is a great place to find artists. Hashtags are used on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. Search for the hashtag #artists and you can find several pages of people looking for job opportunities in comics. You can also search for hashtags such as #comicsartist, #comicbookartist or #webcomicartist

You can hire an artist from a local art school.

If you are a beginner, you can hire an artist from a local art school. It is easier to work with someone who has experience and has completed their education. The issue with hiring an artist from a university, however, is that they may not be as dedicated to your project as someone who is self-taught or freelance. You want the best person possible for the job so that you can get it done on time and within budget!

You should negotiate contracts before moving forward with any artists or studios. Make sure everyone knows what their responsibilities are and how much time they have until deadlines come up are important considerations to make when hiring people for projects like this one!

You can post jobs on freelancing sites.

You can post jobs on freelancing sites, but you need to be mindful of license usage rights, exclusivity clauses and contracts. The artist’s budget is another important factor.

Create your character’s profile and share it on social media!

Now that you’re ready to create your character, you need to find an artist. You can do this by creating a profile for your character and sharing it on social media. People will respond with their portfolios, and you can choose which artists are best suited for the job.

Once you hire an artist, they should be able to work closely with you so that they understand what kind of story or tone fits your character best. For example, if I were writing a webcomic about my dog Charlie (who is actually named Snickers), I would want someone who could illustrate him as cute and fluffy even though he is actually quite large and intimidating!

Artist Alley at comic book conventions

You can find comic book artists at comic book conventions. The Artist Alley is usually a section where artists can sell their work (prints, original drawings, etc.) and you can hire them to draw your comic book.

If you want to go this route, the best way is to find the convention schedule online and see which ones are coming up in your area. The artist alleys tend to be filled with young people who love comics and will do any kind of art for free or cheap—but they may not be able to produce high-quality work on deadline or stick around long enough until your project is done because they have other commitments like school/college/work/etcetera.

Another option would be hiring someone through one of many freelancing websites like Upwork or Freelancer; these sites allow clients from all over the world (even if you’re just looking for someone local) so there’s no need for travel unless you really want it!

Websites to find artists

There are many websites where you can find an artist for your webcomic. Here are some of them:

  • DeviantArt is one of the biggest art-sharing communities on the Internet, with over 40 million members. If you’re looking for a professional artist, DeviantArt is an excellent place to start your search because there are so many artists who might be interested in working with you!
  • Fiverr is one of the best freelance marketplaces online today. They have thousands of talented freelancers ready to help out with any job that needs doing!
  • Reddit’s r/Comics subreddit has a community list of artists willing to work for very little money or even free if they like your story concept enough! If you have time constraints but still want high quality artwork, this could be perfect for meeting those demands – especially if it means getting professional-looking comic panels done quickly without breaking the bank!
  • Artstation is another great place to look for great artists who specialize in making art specifically geared toward digital media such as video games and comics – both traditional styles as well as 3D rendering techniques like photorealistic rendering techniques used by Pixar Animation Studios’ Renderman software suite (for example). The only downside here would be finding someone who specializes in drawing comics themselves rather than just drawing characters within their own style.”
