    P.O.W.! Challenge 17--Not Our Kind...

    P.O.W.! Challenge 17--Not Our Kind...


    P.O.W.! Challenge 17
    Deadline: Sunday, December 7, 2008, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: Not Our Kind...


    This one definitely has a lot of room for interpretation. There are possibilities for aliens, just plain down home folks not liking your GF/BF, human vs cyborg, falling in love with a chicken, etc. 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 18 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, December 7, 2008, and will be a special project that will run a full month due to the holidays.

    Just a reminder--those of you who didn't get a chance to finish exactly the way you wanted to, or ran into deadline problems, remember there is a sticky section where you can post your stuff when you do get it up to speed.

    Hey I'll give this a go.

    Here is a link if anyone wants to download a page template.

    So does all the art have to fall inside the live area?

    Thank you for the interest, guys...and I wouldn't be my obnoxious self if I didn't mention that there is a sticky called "Read this first..." that has all the good stuff, including templates in. That might be why it's called "Read this first..."? Thank you Arttorney for pointing out the thread.

    This is a brilliant opportunity to comment on how the individual conforms to systems in society in an effort to belong and yet inevitably feels isolated in their struggle to be apart of a society that provides false hope. Personally I feel that more often than not, my efforts to belong in society are so fake and contrived that I can not truely identify with the outcome.

    Hopefully I'll get this done and you'll see what I really mean...

    I had to delete about 4 paragraphs of ramble & rant, so I think this project could help me really articulate what I want to say with combination of imagery & text.
    Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.

    Ilaekae & Kmadden2004 - its only text at the moment, Im trying to get things in a cohesive order so that the story progresses smoothly.

    This is hard. I think i have too many ideas and either need to drop some or grind somethings together. The 'not our kind' scene is sorted, .
    Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.

    WIP - Third page of three

    Maybe I'm posting this wip a little early, but I promised myself I would post at least a little something by the end of the night, and now its my bedtime!

    Also, first comic... I would like input, if you have any, so I can get it as right as I possibly can at this early stage.
    You're all more experienced and cleverer and good-looking then me (maybe flattery gets crits?) so any crits would be warmly received.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 17--Not Our Kind...

    Obviously a missing panel here, it is headshot of woman talking flirtatiously in case you want to know.

    Early WIPS are a good thing. Your diligence will pay off because you will not feel the deadline pressure so bad later.

    This looks interesting and the drawing is readable so far. The story line could be firmed up, but I can see this is page three and I am sure page 1 and 2 will provide some background.

    Don't forget to put your screen name and page number on them so Ilaekae won't get all mixed up when he is making the poll.

    It looks like you are exploiting the rule of thirds to bring the eye to the points of interest as the reader goes along. Are you doing that on purpose?

    Hmm, this looks interesting! Never drawn for comics though I love them so I might give this a go. Making up the story is the hardest part!
