    POW! Challenge 2 (We'll just work out...) CORRECTED DEADLINE

    POW! Challenge 2 (We'll just work out...) CORRECTED DEADLINE


    P.O.W.! Challenge 2
    Deadline: February 5, 2008, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    (Due to Challenge 1 being extended, this challenge is moved one week back. The new deadline is February 12)

    Topic: "We'll just work out the details later."


    NOTE: The above is a corrected deadline (my fault) and is the 12th, not the 17th.

    We're going to try something just a tiny bit different this week... The topic above is a piece of dialogue. This piece of dialogue MUST appear in your comic UNCHANGED (except for the quotes) somewhere. How you build your comic around that statement is the challenge, and as far as that's concerned--ANYTHING GOES! Obviously, this is WIIIIIDDE open...

    Interpret any way you wish. Any media. B&W or Color.
    You will present your solution as a minimum of three to a maximum of four pages which adhere to standard comic specs as below...

    Standard Comic Book Size:

    --Trim size: 6 5/8" x 10 1/4"
    --Live art area: 6" x 9"
    --Bleed size before trimming: 6 7/8" x 10 1/2" (1/8" in all directions)

    This thread will be the place you ask questions on this challenge, trash talk, post WIPs and your final art. See the READ THIS FIRST thread for all specs.

    Good luck.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 3 will be posted before Tuesday Midnight, February 5, 2008.

    It's weird how everybody's different. I picked this off a long list I created because it's the first one i saw that I didn't immediately have a decent clue to how to do it. I think this one's gonna be fun...and possibly funny...

    No takers yet, huh?

    I wanted to do this one, but I ran into some personal stuff, and haven't had time. I'm probably gonna jump on the new one tomorrow.

    ketchook!

    Hopefully, there some takers. I thought for sure this one would be fairly easy to get around...

    funfetus, get your ass in gear...

    The deadlines have been moved back a week for Challenge 2, and a few days for Challenge 1. This will be the last extension ever in this thread barring catastrophe... (See announcement above)

    I'm on it! Also, spot reserved for WIPs.

    Ilaekae -- thanks a lot for doing this, man. I've really been needing motivation to just start drawing pages.

    edit: Here's my first page. No dialog yet. I wanna keep the mystery.

    edit again: And the second page.

    edit: Here's the final entry. Unless I decide to change something. But I think this is it.

    I might give it a try. Although after seeing what some of you guys pulled off at the last POW, I'm sure to be outclassed by a few lightyears.

    Don't worry. It's not hard. Feb. 17 is nearly 3 weeks away.

    These famous last words have been brought to you by Arttorney, proudly restating the obvious, and then proving it is apparently not so obvious after all for 52 years.

    the 17th
    D:

    oh you freakin' wusses. i could see pushing it back from the 5th to 9th, but 17th? apparently this challenge IS a walk in the park.

    my sketchbook has a few pow 2 progress updates if anyone is interested.

    I have a surprise for all of you...

    I made a bonehead typo in the deadline and nobody caught it, including me. The new deadline is supposed to be Feb. 12, not Feb 17.

    And I'm going to correct it right now...prick that I am...the deadline IS FEBRUARY 12, NOT FEBRUARY 17.

    I'll bet that makes you all feel a bit better, doesn't it?


    Actually, I'm a bit sorry about the mistake, so if it really screws anyone up, let me know. I just caught it last night when I couldn't figure out why I couldn't make the scheduling come out right. I would like to stick to the 12th to get us back on schedule, and I think you actually all have plenty of time to make that deadline.

    Well, that's a bit of a surprise, but the 17th was a bit generous. I think I'll still make it. I'm finishing up my first page right now, but it's a bear of a page, and the rest should go more quickly. Assuming, of course, that life doesn't happen.

    ketchook!

    Once again, not obvious at all. I don't know how I do it. I'm still trying to figure out if it's a gift or a curse. If any of you have obvious things you would like me to restate then PM me and, that's right, we'll just work out the details later.

    Zeitwolf, the deadline was originally the 5th, but when I extended the first challenge, I had to move up the second to the 12th (one week later) but accidentally typed "7" instead of "2." I even said in the headline I was moving it ONE WEEK but nobody caught the typo, including me...

    The deadline is the 12th.

    The third challenge is going up the 5th with a deadline of the 19th. That make sense? Remember, we have overlapping (by one week) challenges.

    I would so like locking you in the basement with nothing but Tootsie Rolls and bad coffee for a month or so, but that's probably illegal...

    ...and probably not much different from what you're doing now...

    nicely done. Looks like you doing comics for a while . Even without balloons you can clearly see what's going on.

    Wow, thanks. This is actually the first full sequential page I've done since I was a kid. (Man, I drew some bad comics when I was a kid). I've been doing a lot of studying on visual storytelling, though. Eisner, McCloud, the whole bit.

    ketchook!

    Yeah, studying these master actually help a lot. The rest is just eye candy.

    We're getting 3 entries? That's it? I see what's happening. This is the alternate-week ghetto.

    Not so fast! It yet remains to be seen whether I'll have time to type "We'll just work out the details later." into that first box somewhere. (And then there's the page numbers and stuff)

    (No!! My Boxosaur minimalist style can defeat your "actually being able to draw" style!!!)

    You know, on re-reading my post, I think I actually sounded a bit like a jerk.

    It might be worth considering dropping the staggered contests, though, since it seems like it splits up the field. I dunno.

    ketchook!
