    P.O.W.! Challenge 23--Warriors Never Cry...

    P.O.W.! Challenge 23--Warriors Never Cry...


    P.O.W.! Challenge 23
    Deadline: Sunday, May 10, 2009, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: Warriors Never Cry...


    This one is a bit more specific, but I think it leaves enough wiggle room to go in a lot of direction. Those of you who like battle armor and Frazetta-type characters, have a ball. Those of you who don't, show 'em how it's really done. 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.

    This one is three weeks rather than the usual two weeks to see if it will allow more participation or just cause a lot more procrastination. I'll decide afterwards.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 24 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, May 10, 2009.

    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.

    I have about 80 hours of nothing to do. I've already done the sketches. My advice to everyone else who can.... do the sketches, no matter what. It helps get your speed up for later stuff.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 23--Warriors Never Cry...
    Instructor: "Osu! Today we will test your Ki. Your spirit will overcome the body. This kettlebell shall represent the pressures of life"
    P.O.W.! Challenge 23--Warriors Never Cry...
    Instructor: "On your knuckles! 1/3 down! 1/3 down! 1/3 down!"
    Student (thinking): I can't hold on!!! My whole body's giving out.
    P.O.W.! Challenge 23--Warriors Never Cry...
    Student (thinking): I have to move find somewhere in my mind to escape thi-"
    Instructor: You must have zanchen. YOUR MIND WILL REMAIN! The warrior does not give up. The warrior does not fail. The warrior does not complain or cry.

    This looks really cool. I agree Kmadden, DeuceRok looks really tense, like it.
    Will attempt a go, just finishing the stylized challenge, so might not get very far with it

    Osu!

    When you spend 6-13 hours a week in the dojo, you had better learn that the warrior never cries!

    Inking is coming along. Looks like it's gonna be tri-chromatic since I don't have any painting skills yet. (Black, Dark gray, and light gray)

    I'll replace the sketches as they're completed.

    BTW! If anyone's wondering what a dojo looks like or wants to see stances/work check out: www.bushinkanwilliamsburg.com

    One or 2 of the guys might look familiar.

    Hey homies, I've never entered any of CA's weekly challenges, but I'm thinking I'm gonna make this my first. It's finals week, but I think I'll be able to make some time.

    BTW, mine is probably gonna be 6 pages. Just wanna make sure that this challenge is definitely making an exception to the 4 page limit in the Read First thread.
