    P.O.W.! Challenge 42--Harpy...

    P.O.W.! Challenge 42--Harpy...


    P.O.W.! Challenge 42
    Deadline: Sunday, June 6, 2010, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    Topic: Harpy...


    Hope this is to every one's tastes...the word Harpy is one of those ancient terms that have grown with society and language to mean a lot of things not meant originally. I suggest Googling the word before you start to get a true description of the classical creature--it's disgusting. Today it means every thing from a bad mother-in-law/wife/GF to sci-fi dragons with boobs. Try to have fun with this one, whether you go classical or off-the-wall...

    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.

    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 43 will be posted on Sunday Midnight, June 6, 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.
    No position or belief, whether religious, political or social, is valid if one has to lie to support it.--Alj Mary

    Might try and see if I can manage one of these between studying. Looks like it'll be a lot of fun : )

    I like the topic Ilaekae; I've got my Harpy design down... but I need to cement the story.

    It looks like a big plus to getting a divorce is all the free time I have to draw. I haven't entered any of the contests lately, but I have started drawing a lot more... we will see what comes of this one!

    this sounds really cool! i just have some questions..

    1) is the final image size 6"x9"?
    2) the least amount of pages is 2? (im guessing consecutive?)
    3) is it cool to interpret this topic in any way? as long as it involves harpy in some way?

    -well, hopefully this will be ok to do, im planning on creating a few pages surrounding a ninja clan member who has a pet Harpy eagle. this is just gonna be a quick test run for this P.O.W. thing. im pretty excited, seeing as i havent done any sequential art in a while.

    heres just some quick warm up sketches of some Harpy eagles, to get a feel for it.

    good luck everyone!! -looking forward to all of your entries!

    i forgot, in this last thumbnail, with the yamabushi in front of the moon, his pet eagle is also supposed to have landed on his shoulder, like in the smaller thumbnail. ill put it in later.

    also, any crits, or feedback would be cool, thanks!

    NickyBeats Yeah, don't worry, I'm working on something for this challenge. I'm just holding off posting anything until I've got all my pages finished.

    Looks like you've got some pretty good work going on there, looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    Quick question; let's say, for the sake of argument, somebody here wanted to do a double page splash panel, is it okay to count those two pages as just one for the purposes of the challenge?

    Nickybeats wow those sketches are looking pretty awesome! Can't wait to see it all finished : )

    I'm going for a more cartoon/comic strip kinda vibe with mine, just need to find some time to actually start it but I only got the first page sorted. Might try and sort something tonight/tomorrow hopefully

    Diantoga - hey, thanks man!

    Kmadden2004 - thanks! -as for your question, im not sure, but he did say that you could go over the 6 page limit by one or possibly 2 i think, so it should be fine to count those as one page. (but im not 100% sure)

    -----------------------

    heres the linework for pg 1.
