    P.O.W.! Challenge 26--In The Beginning (EXTENDED)...

    P.O.W.! Challenge 26--In The Beginning (EXTENDED)...


    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.

    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 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.

    Ilaekae-

    Any chance of an extension on this one? My panels are meant to tie in directly with my Newborn competition entry, which I believe is due July 31. Perhaps the same is true for your entry?

    If not, I can probably put together an unrendered WIP by Sunday.

    Many thanks,
    Bird

    I thought something like this would happen, or people would just simply ignore this Challenge, so I've decided to take this to August 2 to allow anyone in your spot to finish. But, I will post a new Challenge tomorrow for anyone who wants to tackle something other than the NEWBORN challenge.

    Sorry for the late answer. hope I didn't cause you too much wasted trouble/time.

    Alj

    I almost missed this cos we had a crisis at work (minor) and I've worked 19 of the last 21 days. I'll do my best to get something finalised for August 2nd from the stuff I started already. More likely to finish something for the other challenge though.

    So here's my contest entry. It ended up being a little rushed (after all that time). But I think the concept is strong.

    Cheers

    Only one entry made it to completion (well done, btw), so I am declaring Waterbird the winner of this P.O.W.!. J.S.'s entry wasn't completed enough to actually go to poll, but showed some real promise. I'd like to see this one finished.

    Keep in mind that if you're working on a longish (6-10 page) entry and suddenly realize you'll run out of time, all you NEED to compete is TWO finished pages as an official entry. I'll just post the unfinished pages as an addendum so the readers can see where you're going with the story.
