    P.O.W.! Challenge 24...The Doll

    P.O.W.! Challenge 24...The Doll


    P.O.W.! Challenge 24
    Deadline: Sunday, May 31, 2009, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: The Doll...


    This one sounds specific, but carries a lot of subliminal weight, so we should get some nice approaches out of it. A doll can be a toy or knick-knack that varies from realistic to primitive/hand-made, a religious item such as used in Voodoo or Santeria, cute females of various types in various genres such as detective pot-boilers, early US period pieces, movies and comics, or just about any item that is used in some way to imitate a human or near human. Like clowns, dolls can be both horrifying, beautiful or funny. 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.

    Again, 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.

    P.O.W.! Challenge 25 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, May 31, 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.

    Ahh this is great! I used to really struggle with coming up with concepts but lately these have been more up my alley. :3 Hopefully this one can be more polished than my first one.

    Aww thanks Deuce. I might try and borrow a scanner so this one can be inked and stuff-- I'm not really a digital kind of gal.

    You're not supposed to vote for yourself in any of the six Challenge areas...

    ...not cool.

    I'm running into something I didn't expect--it's easier to do a doll horror piece than a non-horror one (I've already got 15 decent story lines in that direction). I'm gonna make an effort to try to come up with a non-horror story.

    I wasn't criticizing the horror approach. It's one of my favorite genres. I was just surprised that when I started to think about it, how hard it was to come up with another approach that wasn't just bad/cliche/non-interesting.

    There's the porn approach, oh wait, I guess that falls under the "bad" category..

    Haha my problem is coming up with one that isn't too LONG... I actually am really bad at horror so I didn't go that direction at all. o_o When it came down to it my first idea was too complicated, I couldn't possibly finish it in under 20 pages! Definitely too much work for me to do in three weeks.

    Well...porn is not maybe the best way to go, but if you do, it has to be a complete 196-page black and white with color covers and secondary intro pages--in three weeks. That's how the mangakas do it...

    BUT...your porn comment did give me an idea I hadn't had before...

    Aren't those inflatable sex toys called dolls? If so, it might be possible to come up with something really funny without going to the level of porn. Explaining to Sr. Mary Demonkiller why there's a self-inflating plastic chick oozing out of your high school gym locker could be a riot.

    ADD: Thrown in as an idea--little girls always play tea party with dolls. What if the dolls talked? And if you were that doll, would you be satisfied with mud cookies?

    Yup...

    The maximum of six pages is a SUGGESTION because most people who jump into this for the first time can get themselves into trouble really fast if they bite off more than they can chew. Then they get frustrated and never try it again.
