    P.O.W.! Challenge 20--BUGS! (as History)

    P.O.W.! Challenge 20--BUGS! (as History)


    P.O.W.! Challenge 20
    Deadline: Sunday, March 1, 2009, 11:59 pm
    anywhere in the world.

    Topic: BUGS! (as History)


    This Challenge will run approximately one month, to avoid conflicts with the TD and allow everyone enough time to take a crack at it.

    This is our 20th Challenge, and so I'm making it a little special. Those of you who have trouble with plots...have fun. We are doing any event--ANY EVENT--in human history, BUT with INSECTS as the characters. The Viking Cock Roach invasion, a scene from the Inquisition under Preying Mantises, Buffalo Dung Beetle's Traveling Western show, WHATEVER!--as long as it's real history but with bugs. For this Challenge, "BUGS" includes insects of any kind, spiders, centipedes and millipedes, and buggy-like sea types like shrimp, crabs, and such. Try to have fun with it--any human period, any human event, any historical accomplishment, but with BUGS.

    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 THREE to a tentative maximum of TEN 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 21 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, March 1, 2009.

    And supposedly there is another big ThunderDome (TD) event coming up in about a week or so, although its specific nature remains hush hush at this time.

    Watch the Lounge or Challenge Arena for announcements.

    It would be safer to say two to three weeks, probably. That's the reason we shortened the Male/Female TD so drastically...

    As drawing comics is my main art thing, I really should draw this one. I have no idea how to draw insects so hopefully I learn lot of things while drawing this.

    The hard thing is to decide what event to draw...

    One thing that should be made clear here is that obviously, you don't have to stick to proper "bug" anatomy, and you don't have to be "historically" accurate in your depictions as far as the literal details go. The bugs will almost certainly have to be modified or simplified if costuming is important to your scene, and some things in real life just won't work if applied to bugs...a sexy corset or bustiere for example just doesn't cut it on a lady bug.

    Either think anthropomorphic to some degree, or adapt the world and its accessories however you have to to the "bugs." This is fantasy, with a human historical basis...

    One additional thought...you don't have to do the "bugs" to any specific size. If you make them human-sized, obviously the accessories and scenes will be just as we know them. If you make the critters "bug"-size, obviously you have another whole can of worms (pun), since you'll be getting into shoes as boats, soup cans as homes, thimbles as helmets or hats, etc.

    Like your idea..

    Don't sweat the deadline--still the 22nd. It was drastically shortened to THAT date from a 10 week challenge because ANOTHER TD is "rumored" to start near the end of February or so. We were playing safe...

    ...and as for winning by default...on the 22nd, your feminine ass is mine...metaphorically speaking...
