    P.O.W.! Challenge 44--Final Poll



    Final Poll: P.O.W.! 44: The Monster Mash...

    We have officially confirmed with this topic that everyone here is ten years old and having way too much fun--we had five entries with a total of 23 pages, and another four starts posted as non-competitive... Jeez, you people really need to move on to nuclear physics or philosophy or sumpin'...

    The voting will be open for roughly three weeks. Vote for one artist (and NOT yourself), and just to remind you--the theme is "The Monster Mash..." with any interpretation you felt appropriate to your story.

    Artists are posted in alphabetical order...

    Voted for vineris. I really liked his style, and also like the way he used his panels.

    I would have voted for bhanu, but the lettering was hard to follow. Also, the narrative confused me at times (I wouldn't know if that is what you were going for).

    Actually, I'm glad you mentioned that...

    bhanu, your text is way too small for most people to read, and you're not the first to post a piece here with that same problem. All of us have to remember that a comic is a bastard form of literature, as much as that thought makes our "real writer" friends gag, and has to be readable as well as interesting as art. Down the line, I'd like you to take a look at the comic in this thread and maybe look at ways to improve the readability. It's great art, and it should be a great comic as well. Fixing it shouldn't be as hard to do as you might think...

    This was a tough one! I ended up voting for Vritra. I really liked Bhanu's style, but it was not quite clear enough. All the entries had something good going for them, though, it was hard to choose.

    t_pual_l realy great start would have love to see it finished!!!!!
    raoul duke you had an over all great sense of action with the linework!
    pxelslayervery intense charactization. but the half and panel from face to castle....should not be equal in a sense the castle should have been the main focul point thean the charactor's face IMP...becuse you ting envirenment in the art work
    donalfallMONSTER M.A.S.H!!!! that is so classic.....i laughed my ass off great exicution as well....kudos to you my friend!!!!!
    vritraWOW!!!! you really came through for me at least your art was clean your storyboarding (panels) where crisp clear and effective and the story telling was sound scary and dark!!!!!! (my vote went to you)
    vineres very solid work..... decient story line over all there was just too much black in it for for me...... but great non the less!!!
    tobba clean cut line work great through the looking glass type of tranformation the child looking through the window. good stuff!
    me well first off the word bubbles kill the eye and distract from the art....and me we should try to write the story before hand.......dumbass!
    bhanu i can see that your a skilled artist but in this challenge i felt your work was really rushed so much to the point where even in your finall entry my eye had no idea where to go ......and i was confused in some panels of what i was looking at...it was chaotic art and i love chaotic...... i actually like your story over everyones....
