    Well, so you know your own biggest problem...

    I guess it's time to work on that script thing, ain't it?

    Here's how the first page is rendered currently. Does it fit with the theme?

    erm... hi people... I'm a lurker at POW topics since I joined. and now I have an idea. maybe a little sentimental and not exciting, but my own, my precious - and it's short and simple. maybe even me am able to do it somehow...
    I can't even draw a head properly without some luck and it will be my very first something of this kind...

    I wrote this to give a slight chance for my idea to come true... I have plans and I rarely realize them soon enough. but I wanna do this... 2 simple pages... maybe a cover too...

    Well... I did a sketch of my doll while I was in Chicago, but I'm not going to take it much further. I'm gonna head back to some figure drawing and studies until I feel ready to do work once more.



    Wish I could have done the full paneling.... (=[)

    Ok J.S. You're starting with 5 panels on the top of the 1st page. Simplify that. 2 or 3 shots... 5 is way too many! Also, make sure that you clearly introduce your characters.

    Also, look at the critique of "Rude" in the resources section. You'll see that you ought to place boxes and such for your words. Otherwise then they end up covering the art. I recommend adding another layer in PS to do this.

    The rest of the pages have generally the same comments. Simplify the multi-panels, unless it's a fight scene. I also recommend enlarging a few of these smaller panels so that the action is clear.

    Hey this looks intriguing, I haven't participated in week challenges before. But this one strikes a chord for me. How do you submit the pages?

    You submit by posting the images in this thread. Just use the image attachment, but make sure your image is reduced to no more than 10" high or it won't accept it. This ends tonight (actually sometime tomorrow if I keep my usual screwed up schedule) so you might be a bit late to start this one. Please note, though, that I am just STARTING mine right now--8 pages--and have no idea if I'll make it or not...so go for it if you want. Only need two pages finished to qualify for the poll.

    Read the stickied stuff through real quick for a fast how-to on the rules and sizes and stuff.

    New Challenge will be up tonight, running three weeks.

    Finally done mine. I'm not too happy with how the story worked out (It looks sorta rushed...) and my rendering probably looked hasty too, but oh well. That was fun.

    EDIT:
    After a critical discussion with a friend o' mine, it became apparent that the story wasn't apparent enough. I guess I tried to fit something much too complicated for the alotted pages, argh.
    She suggested I put the story here, just in case:
    In short, there's a guy. He's derailed his life with alcohol and gangs. One day, he's drinking and pondering in his room (seem in the last page), but somebody breaks in and knocks him out, giving him a few stab wounds along the way. He then wakes up in this weird white space, trapped in place by a voodoo doll nailed to a wooden cube, and accompanied by a blindfolded man. I wanted to have a long section with him subjecting the protagonist to various symbolic unpleasantness, but that would've taken too many pages. In the end, the protagonist sees that playing tough gets him nowhere, so he trades this for actual toughness, rips out of the prison, and delivers a bird-related punching meme to the antagonist. He then wakes up and has an epiphany.

    It is evident I didn't convey this well enough...any critique on how to do that better?

    I didn't get my scanner like I'd hoped so I'm sadly not going to poll. I'll still post when it's done though. Sorry guys!

    Alright here's what I got done. I only got wind of this last Friday so with about 8 days to work on this and plans previously made for the week I didn't really have time to build on it much So out of a 6 page run I was hoping to get to, I only have two to show. And they're not even finished (notice the clothes missing on the amazones, on the hero on the throne, the dismembered arm flung in frame 1 page 3 and, well.. You get the idea).

    But, I liked the exercise and I thought I'ld post it here anyways, maybe get some comments/crits. I think I might actually get around to finishing up a few pages on this one in my spare time, we'll see.

    A little background : this Hildùlfr, the D&D type hero here was the character I came up with for Dominance War IV... That went awry for me somewhat, tangled up and all. Regardless, this "story" is me takin' a pot-shot at myself : gettin' all excited about this warrior character and then in the end (page 06 included here) you realise that all these tall tales of various battles and what not are just some kid playin' around with his G.I.Joe-ish doll and gettin' lost in his own imagination.

    Err, what else. Ahh well the heart floating around there is his magic weapon/artefact, he uses the blood as arrows and all that. Anyway, long story, you can check it out at the Dominance War Entries section if you're that interested.

    I'll upload the (very preliminary) WIPs of pages 4 and 5 at least to give a little more of an idea of what I had in mind. But for now, this is what I got since this seems to be the deadline of midnight in oh just about 10 minutes hehe

    Ahhh yes the copyright info. Dunno if you require this in the POW but as it was asked in the CHOWs here it is :
    Copywright owned by : Nicolas Lizotte

    You guys are great. Glad I didn't go through with the embarrasingly bad thing I was going to do. Wonder what happened to J.S., alecat, and shiNiN?

    Hey guys, hope you like this. No text with the exception of the last panel , leaning towards a storyboard - style.

    Aaaand here's my contribution! I don't think the image quality is great though; I'm still trying to figure out my less-than-stellar scanner as well as importing inked art into computer programs. Took me about as long to figure that out as it did to draw the whole thing...

    Just wasted an afternoon with Techsupport at HP, AGAIN...

    Soooo I haven't gotten around to paste-up all that WIP stuff for page 3&4 so hot. I'm still gona take this break to post the WIPs that lead up to where I was for page 3 and 6 (out of 6). This doesn't seem to be required in POW, but it's something I always like to see in the CHOW so, I'll go for it anyway

    Well it's official... My harddrive crashed, AGAIN... Fuckin' useless HP twat bastard CUNTS... Apparantly I have to send the whole tower back this time... That's twice now, plus the faulty monitor... Pissed-off just doesn't quite seem to express the emotion...

    I'ld updated the two pages I posted here and put in enough hours on pages 4&5 to make them look decent-ish, not to mention all the other stuff I'ld been workin' on recently...

    Anyway, the point being that it all seems pretty much flushed down the bog now... Unless I somehow manage to recuperate the files (come on, like that's gona happen), this is pretty much the end of the line "for the Doll" as far as I'm concerned. To much of a downer to get back too...
