    IDW #59: Power Boots

    Topic: Power Boots

    Background: Yep you heard it right, power boots is this weeks' topic

    This topic encompasses all the footwear you can think of: boots, shoes, sandals, toenailpolish etc etc (well, maybe not the last one but it might inspire something even stranger...). The idea is that these boots grant its wearer extra powers. What powers these are is completely up to you as the designer.

    There is no specific location or time frame attached to the topic, so it may be magical boots made by fearies or sci-fi magnetic boots to walk around in space. As long as they give its owner something extra beside simple footwear its fine.

    I was going to say we're talking about a pair of boots here, and not just a single one, but then I realised that there might be alien races out there with only one or a whole range of feet. No restrictions there then, except if you go for humans you have to draw the complete pair and not just one. Adding the user is optional but not necessary.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw Power Boots!
    2. Draw the complete pair...or quartet or..well check above
    3. They must grant the wearer extra power beyond being mere footwear.
    4. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Tuesday Februari 5 2008 (Since the usual deadline is a little messed up, I added a whole extra day. The next topic will be up earlier so the deadlines will be on my sunday again, which makes it easier for me to close them on time and put the poll up)

    Sounds like a fun topic, i'll see what I can cook up.
    Q: Instead of painting the pair of boots, can we do a front and back view of one boot?

    You can work now and play later, or play now and work later.

    Legato: Good to hear that

    Epias: Would be cool to see you finish something for this

    Timothee: You can do that, but I still want to see the two boots together as well, even if it's just a small sketch in the corner (I hope it'll be more than that though ) Imagine them as being an image of an artifact you can find in dungeons in games, like gathering weapons and stuff.

    I'm contemplating either spray on shoes of some sort (with presently un-thought of power) or 23rd century ruby slippers which teleport along with some other features.
