SPECIAL P.O.W.! Challenge 26
Deadline: Sunday, August 2, 2009, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
Topic: In The Beginning (Newborn Special Challenge)
This is part of the Forum-wide NEWBORN Challenge, but will be treated as a specific P.O.W.! assignment. It has no affect on the results of the main Challenge posted by Mr. Manley, but can act as a stimulus for many of you to more ideas that might apply to the main Newborn Challenge. We will post here as usual, and will have our own separate poll. You can ALSO take part of your entry (for example, any creature, character, etc.,) and develop it further to qualify for one of the other Newborn-related Challenges as long as you obey their rules and post it in the appropriate Challenge, or even take a panel or part of your comic idea and use it to produce a fully developed illustration for the main Newborn Challenge.
The P.O.W.! topic (In The Beginning...) is skewed just enough from "Newborn" to both allow you to stick to the Newborn idea literally, or go in a few directions you may not necessarily want (or be able) to pursue for the main Challenge. Just keep in mind that what you do here CAN'T be entered "as is" in the Main Forum Challenge. You can interpret the art any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color. We're going to stick with the three-week Challenge period we've been using for the last couple of Challenges.
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.
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 27 will be posted before Sunday Midnight, July 19, 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.
