    P.O.W.! Challenge 21--EXTENDED!

    P.O.W.! Challenge 21--EXTENDED!


    P.O.W.! Challenge 21
    Deadline: Sunday, March 22, 2009, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: My Pet...


    I chose something obvious as a title, but I want you to really push this one to an extreme. A pet is a living (usually) creature that is in a subservient and trusting relationship with a more intelligent/advanced creature. That covers a lot of territory, so let's see what we can do with it... Be as cute/gross/broad-in-interpretation as you wish. 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 22 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, March 22, 2009.

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

    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.

    "...plays on the double feature screen. Your pet went straight to DVD." Wait... I don't think "pet" is the right word for that song. I hope I can actually finish this one. I always get about 1/2 way through. It takes me FOREVER to finish these!

    ive been really fascinated by subtext and implied relationships, so i think the narrative of the images and dialog will not always follow a linear progression. instead i'm going to focus more on presenting an abstraction of the theme of being subordinate and dominant.

    note: this thread may need a NSFW tag.

    A vision of a little girl saying, "Fluffy doesn't like you..." just flashed before me, so I'm pretty sure I'm in this one...

    Ok, so 2 things....

    1. I did the mock-up for mine today in my analog sketchbook. It's only a few pages, so I think I might actually be able to do this one. My figures/characters still need some work, but I've got the tools for that.

    2. Hapun: Thanks for pointing out the quick sketch of the dimensions, mentioned in the "Comic book standard size:" directions. I'm trying to make an "Action" that automatically sets up the page, some and some grid lines. That made it hella easier!

    Whoa nice sketches guys!

    Grief: Can't wait to see yours, it looks sexy. (lolcats) I think I'll also be doing people, but pet in a different sense.

    Deuce: Looks good! huhh crits... can't really tell anything from sketches but maybe add some variation in angles and fix perspective while finalizing.
