P.O.W.! Challenge 37
Deadline: Sunday, February 14, 2010, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
Topic: The REALLY Bad Date...
We're back to our regularly scheduled programming after a nice interlude dealing with the niceties of covers, so something disgusting is called for. The title says it all--the date from Hell. We've all had them, and for some of us, we even got married to whatever showed up and spent a part of our life looking for lethal weapons to end the pain. The subject IS a bit limiting, but I think you might be able to have some fun with it if you think about the possibilities of WHERE, WHEN, and WHO to the extreme. (Hint...doesn't have to be two humans...or even TWO of anything...)
You can interpret the art any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color. We're also going to stick with the (almost) three-week Challenge period for a while because it seems to be giving people a bit more time to play.
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.
REMEMBER: You don't have to have a complete comic to qualify for polling--if you're idea requires six pages or so, go for it, but if you realize you're running out of time, try to get at least TWO finished by the deadline. That's all you need to qualify.
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 38 will be posted on Sunday Midnight, February 14, 2010.
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.
