    Can we expand it to include other characters, such as Spider-Girl (yes, technically an alternate universe, but I like the idea of her), Batgirl, and any version of the Robins?

    You can use any combination of 2 characters that are named Spider-something or Bat-something from the Spider/Bat universes. Feel free to use other characters in the background to enhance the story of your piece.

    Great to have you joining us again - Have fun!

    MoHog: Great to have u with us again
    Very nice lil piece there, creepy and funny at the same time...


    Asatira: Welcome aboard, I'm guessing you'll go cartoony with your piece like me. Should be interesting which characters you end up using, might go Spiderwoman/Batwoman myself, or possibly Batgirl now that you mention it...

    Have a Wip goin', Spiderwoman 'n' Batwoman! I'll post somethin' later today.
    G: Was looking over some of you older stuff and I saw the Wolverine pic, I liked it very much!!! u should really push that "black heavy" style cuz it's quite rare AND you do it SOoOoO WELL...
    Jim Lee used something similar on his character, Deathblow, with great results. Why don't u check him out for even more ideas!

    This is mostly to show that I am working on something. Just a few thumbnails, nothing fancy.

    Asatira: It's a bit too early to say anything but it looks like u have a winner with the one that has Batman on a motorcycle
    It's great that u do tons of thumbnails before you decide on a final composition, a sign of a great artist in the making
    Keep 'em coming, girl

    Yarg! everyone's been really busy! haha that's cool Annoyingly I was on earlier and had written out quite a bit of feedback and comments then we had a thunderstorm and it cut out the electric so lost what I'd said :grrrr: Basically great work everyone! nice to see roughs wips and ideas being posted and Thanks Mahran for commenting and keeping things going while I'm not around (life is being busy and I urgently need to work at the moment)

    Mahran - great piece dude - really clean lines and plenty of action. Would like to see a little more tension between SpideyWoman and Venom - she seems to be sitting on his leg quite calmly!

    MoHog - 0.o Yikes! as I said before I'm not into Vamp/Zombie stuff but you got great action and viewpoint! I can't really crit it other than I'm unsure how they are collaborating to beat a villain or save citizens?... lol

    Asatira - I gotta agree with Mahran - some great ideas there and Is see a lot of potential in your work!

    Mx3 - Sweet sketch dude! the Dynamism between Spidey and Croc is working great but be careful Bat doesn't get tangled with Spidey - kinda looks like Spidey's gonna get right in between Bat n Croc. I'm excited to see the finished piece!

    Awesome work everyone - keep it up!

    Me, Myself, and Me again: Looks like a good fight.
    Mahran, 7artist7: Thanks for the opinions. As you can see, did a few more thumbs. It took a little bit but I gradually shifted from the two figures, Spider-man and Batgirl, to adding an opponent. I kinda like the Rhino fight thumbs.

    ho ho ho, its really kicking off

    pretty much done here i think, i looked at doing a comic cover or adding in some frames but they both took too much from the original image. Hope this is ok and the threat they are combating can be insinuated...

    Asatira: really like the thumbs, cool to see how your process works. spidey/batgirl v rhino would be great, especially their lithe fragile frames against the sheer bulk and gristle - looking forward to the line-work

    Mx3: great combo there, i would reposition bats as Artist7 says maybe from a different angle to add more depth. good stuff tho

    Mahran: lovely work there dude, and YES YES a comic page contest would be great

    NickyBeats: woah, great start. epic build up scene, not much to critique at the mo, looking forward to see what the next step is. and yeah i believe it is jones, fantastic trilogy had a big impact on me

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. Last thumbnails, I promise. Just trying to hash out the general composition. Aiming for rough pencils tonight.

    MoHog: Creepy! Wouldn't want to be on the street the same night as these guys.

    NickyBeats: Interesting. Of course, I think the guy is an idiot for grabbing Catwoman.

    Mahran: Nice job.
    And yeah, I might be interested in a sequential challenge.

    Hey guys - just to let yall know I'm still alive! Agh I have just had stuff to do that's taken up all my spare time for this! Great job everyone - rockin on without me - can't wait to see all the finals! ... I'm going to try to do something between tonight and the end of tomorrow deadline - it'll be quick, loose, quite probably crazy and possibly will work out should be fun!

    Doing a comic page for the next challenge sounds good but remember these are dynamic energy challenges and that's the main focus - sounds like some pretty epic comic pages to me! Push yourselves to the limit peoples - The job I'm working on is my first go at full comic pages so have been doing a bunch of research into layout and ..dude! ... all the great comics are bursting at the seems with super dynamic art! Whether I have the time to take part fully or not it sounds great!

    Keep on Rockin my friends!

    The7Artist7: Look forward to seeing what you come up with. And I do agree that while a sequential challenge would be nice, it's nice to keep the focus confined to dynamics. Besides, POW will get up and running again, so it might be best to leave sequentials there.

    Man, I think I'm in love with the process as much as the final image. I keep posting WIPs. More focused pencils. Will ink today or tomorrow, but things are busy, so may be a final if push comes to shove.

    Okay boys 'n' girls, deadline is midnight tonight!
    Remember tho, your final piece can be full colour or B&W, so just have fun with it
    Looks like some of u lads might want another day or so to send in your final entries, so I can postpone the deadline a couple of days if need be...
    Send me a pm if u need more time, okay?
    POW challenges are great, but I think we'll have more fun doing our thing together, more informal and friendly. We'll see I guess
