    P.O.W.! Challenge 11-A -- Strange Bedfellows (NSFW?)

    P.O.W.! Challenge 11-A -- Strange Bedfellows (NSFW?)


    P.O.W.! Challenge 11-A
    Deadline: Sunday, July 27, 2008, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: Strange Bedfellows


    Now that DEEP is over, it's time to get this mess back on track. First, the Giant Bugs theme got buried by DEEP, so I'm going to repost it again at some point in the future--which is why this Challenge is labeled "11-A.". There is a major change in how we'll operate -- the Challenge will be posted late Sunday night--Monday morning at the latest, and will run THREE WEEKS with NO overlap. This seemed to be a problem with a lot of people, and hopefully, the extra time with no overlap will give us a better chance to do something a bit better than quicky sketches.

    A bit of clarification for those of you unfamiliar with the term "Strange Bedfellows" -- it comes from Shakespeare's The Tempest ("Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows." It was spoken by a man who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster. It's often used in modern speech as a comment on strange political alliances. You can interpret any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color.

    You can present your solution as a minimum of TWO to a tentative maximum of SIX pages which adhere to standard comic specs as below...and, yes, you can have the first or last (or both) as a splash page if you want. You can go to additional pages without asking if you have a decent idea that requires it--just don't get too extreme on page counts

    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.! Special Challenge 12 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, July 27, 2008.


    Make sure you've read everything above. I've made some changes to the deadline date and Challenge timing.

    Since I seem to be back into actually drawing...I think I'll do this. Panels are the cooliest.

    Hmmm....strange bedfellows...hmmm....

    I am currently designing for CHOW and COW. I might combine those designs into a comic, as 'friends' or even lovers. Could be a strange and unique story...

    I'm posting this as a WIP since I haven't erased away pencil lines or drawn on the trim marks yet.

    If timing works out, I'm gonna be in this one. Got an idea two nights ago that combines politics, religion, evolution, UFOs and sex...heeheehee

    Dunno bout comics, but I assume it's the same as graphic design.

    Bleed=Total size of paper
    Trim=Size the paper gets trimmed down to
    Live Area= Safe Area- All text should be contained within this area

    Please PM me if you'd like an individual crit.

    Yeah. Ilaekae described the meaning of the terms in pretty good detail in the Read This First sticky thread.

    [Edit: All right. I'll Make a different page here].

    Hi!
    I've been doing comics for a few years, and recently work and life got in the way and I completely put it aside. Now I really want to get back to it, and POW is a great way to get those storytelling muscles pumping again.

    Here's my first page pencils (well, they're PS brushes, really...but they'll pose for pencils for argument's sake).
