Prepper OPEN
The one in charge of cropping and sometimes levelling all the raws. Photoshop is required. This is a repetitive job that requires consistency, and accuracy.
You will also need a lot of hard drive space as well as fast internet speeds as files for a single chapter frequently reach 1GB in size.

Cleaner OPEN
The one in charge of erasing all bubbles as well as SFX. Photoshop is required. This is a repetitive job that requires consistency, accuracy, as well as patience when dealing with textured bubbles/backgrounds.
You will also need a lot of hard drive space as well as fast internet speeds as files for a single chapter frequently reach 1GB in size.

Redrawer OPEN
The one in charge of the removal of heavy SFX that the cleaners couldn't do. Photoshop is required, and a tablet is preferred. You will not get as many pages as a cleaner, but prepared to spend longer on each page you receive.

JPN Translator OPEN
The one in charge of translating Japanese text into English. We are looking for a near-fluent understanding of the language. You must be near the N3 level for this position as this is the backbone of our group. You'll need a lot of patience for this position as I am very picky about translations.

Dialogue Typesetter CLOSED


SFX Typesetter OPEN
The one in charge of making all the SFX look awesome and dynamic. This typesetting position would best fit someone who loves to be creative. Photoshop is required.

Test: http://bit.ly/aoc-SFXTS


SPECIAL POSITIONS: Please DM me to inquire.

Colourist OPEN
The one in charge of restoring colour pages. Often many colour opening pages that appeared in magazines are changed to greyscale in order to save on production costs. Your job is to use references available to turn the greyscale image back into a colourful one. There won't be many pages for you to work on, but each one takes an incredible effort to make it right. This is best for someone who already has experience in digital art.
You will need to be prepared for a great deal of detail-oriented work. Photoshop is required


Line Artist OPEN
The one who skilfully restores any line art missing after the text has been erased. This is perfect for someone who has limited time or isn't good at pattern cloning. A tablet is preferred for this position and digital painting software such as Photoshop, Procreate, or Clip Paint Studio is required.


Pattern Guru OPEN
The one who lines up patterns perfectly in Photoshop. This is a good position for somebody who isn't quite skilled enough for the redrawer position or isn't good at line art. You will be partnered up with either a Line Artist, Cleaner, or Redrawer most of the time. You will need to be prepared for a great deal of detail-oriented work. Photoshop is required.
