P.O.W.! for another time, perhaps.
Topic: Sleight of Hand
I always love when something innocuous happens in one panel in of a comic that proves to have a plot reason for its existence later! If you happen to have seen the recent release "Who is Jake Ellis?" they do a nice example of this over the course of the first couple of pages, where the hero picks a guys pocket during an action scene. It happens, it's drawn right there on the page, but until they point it out later, the average reader will totally have missed it happening (I know I did).
That's what I'm looking for with "Sleight of Hand", but if some other idea comes to you or appeals to you more with this topic, go for it! As always, there is no dictatorship in POW!
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 three-week-ish Challenge period that Ilaekae has established for the last 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.
Get going & see what you can create! Poll should be up & active for POW 50 - Anniversary tomorrow evening. Also, I'm thinking I need someone who is good at pixel art, if anyone with that skill set wants to PM me.
