    P.O.W.! Challenge 16--A Walk in the Park

    P.O.W.! Challenge 16--A Walk in the Park


    P.O.W.! Challenge 16
    Deadline: Sunday, November 16, 2008, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: A Walk in the Park


    This one should give you a lot of room to play. For those of you not used to US slang, "a walk in the park," other than the obvious, can also mean something that should be so easy to do, it's the equivalent to "a walk in the park." In most cases, that's the first cue that everything will probably go straight to hell... You can interpret the art 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 post your final art. See the READ THIS FIRST thread for all specs.

    Good luck.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 17 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, November 16, 2008.


    ************************************************** ***

    A little note here for all of you who have supported the P.O.W.! Challenges...

    I'm very surprised and HAPPY by the number of people who came through and actually started something for this last challenge. At least I know we're not wasting our time here...thank you all for that. Those of you who didn't get a chance to finish exactly the way you wanted to, remember there is a sticky section where you can post your stuff when you do get it up to speed.

    I have an idea for this! =D So hopefully my itching to make a comic will finally manifest into something substantial.

    I'll try to draw this one too. Still thinking on this topic.

    I'd also like to announce that like in previous challange I'm not really doing this to compete with anybody. I just want to take my first steps in comics and have fun.

    We actually don't compete against each other here all that much, f'... I like to keep it a kind of "look what I did--how'd you do?" kind of thing. I figured this would be better than the blood-guts-and-gore war that the other Challenges sometimes become because very few people here have actually ever done a real comic past second grade, and I'm more interested in getting them to try than I am getting them to win another bowling trophy...

    I might actually be able to do this one finally myself--I have an idea that won't require me to do heavy comp manipulation to make it work...

    If you click on the Community Activities button you can see that all the other activities are just "_OW" but this one is "Panels of the Week Challenge" That's because it's hard enough to tell a sequential story as it is. If you finished this activity you won. You won experience.

    I didn't even draw panels as a kid. But I'm here learning because it's a great opportunity. Every time, "Could I or couldn't I?" becomes more like "Can I or can't I?" because I learn what it takes. That's an awful lot of the battle. Eventually it will be just "I can."

    Been playing a lot of Fallout 3 lately and its very heavily influenced my take on this topic.
    Its basically a two page snippet showing a drifter travelling the destroyed landscape. Walking through what is left of a childrens playground (park?). He picks up a child's tattered teddy bear (symbolic of the innocence destroyed by the violent world). I am struggling at the moment to try not to have a sniper try to pick him off as i don't think its necessary and will also mean more pages.
    Anyway, here's my character concept for the drifter. Gonna start on the layout roughs next.

    Ilaekae - Ha, mine sounds ridiculously over the top compared to yours. I think sometimes i should think more appropriate themes. I just can't help the desire to put in weapons and destruction. One day

    Kmadden2004 - we should be able to do the same story/theme/take on the the topic. I don't think it'll be as bad as two girls turning up to a party in the same dress. Our execution of the story will most probably be different and our characters certainly will so there shouldn't be a prob. Besides, this is for a bit of fun. Its not like our livelihoods are on the line here. I actually can't wait to see your take on a similar theme.

    Here's my super rough layouts. Plan to do the proper pencils next.
