    P.O.W,! Challenge 55 (A-B) Zombies and Vikings...

    What I been getting is whine whine zombies zombies zombies, so...bite me. If nothing comes in on this one from you dunderheads, I'll never ask your opinions on anything again and we'll do challenges involving Sailor Moon and Teddy Bears from now on...

    Sorry for being two days late, but my phone connection went out for periods as they replaced some damaged lines here in the boonies between Sunday and late this afternoon.



    P.O.W,! Challenge 55 (A-B) Zombies and Vikings...


    THERE HAVE BEEN MAJOR CHANGES MADE, SO READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY!

    All future POW! Challenges will roughly follow the format below, unless otherwise noted for a special event.

    SPECIAL NOTE: For the next two challenges only, we are dropping the "C" challenge because of the two-month holiday period, which really makes things difficult for everybody. We'll go back to normal in January.

    In all cases, you can interpret the art any way you wish, and the more creatively, the better. Any media. B&W or Color, unless we specifically point out otherwise.


    Topic 55A: ZOMBIES...before 1850

    Alright...you got Zombies...but with a hitch...to prevent a bunch of bazookas/rayguns blowing apart great-great-uncle Ned trying to eat your brains, the zombies must be in a historical era that predates 1850. Got that? No walking dead AFTER 1850. You can have cave people, ancient Egyptian or Viking zombies, even braining eating medieval nuns, but no zombie fights AFTER 1850, which means no nukes, light sabers or AK-47s. Hell, I don't care if your zombies are even human...I mean, zombie wombats fighting deported British criminals in Australia could be sooooo kewl...heeheehee.

    Topic 55B: Norse Mythology...

    This is our second attempt at various world mythologies and legends. This time, let's try to keep to the northern European and North Atlantic areas, with things like the Vikings and such. We're trying to depict the authentic beliefs and legends of the era/people in comic format, so this means it's research time, Kiddies...

    Either or Both-Deadline: Sunday, December 4, 2011, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    You can present your solution as a minimum of THREE to any practical maximum you wish 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--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 realize you're running out of time, try to get at least THREE pages finished by the deadline. That's all you need to qualify for polling..

    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)


    .................................................. ......................................


    AND A SPECIAL CHALLENGE FOR ALL YOU WOULD-BE DESIGNERS/COMIC ARTISTS OUT THERE...(extended until we think we enough to go to poll with.)

    WE NEED A BANNER/MASTHEAD/"LOGO" (whatever you wanna call it. It's our brand.) We'll decide the winner by poll, and if we decide we need more entries before polling, we will extend the deadline for this one for as long as it takes. This piece of art is forever, after all... or till last Tuesday--whichever comes last.

    The Rules:

    • This is Top-Grade Art, so do your best. No rough sketches, WIPs, or jelly sandwiches will go to polling.

    • Size should be approximately 1000 pixels WIDE by 400 to 600 pixels HIGH.

    • The banner should present a clear idea of what P.O.W.! is all about--SEQUENTIAL PANEL (and other types of) COMICS-- and all that goes into producing them. Should be multi-color, and strong and clear in its message, which is "WE DO COMIX HERE!"

    • Unlike the other Challenges (COW, CHOW, TEEN, etc.), we don't need an area for specs or "rules" for each individual challenge, because we're too diverse in approach to tie down to one set of specs.

    • What we DO need is the wording, "P.O.W.!" and "PANELS OF THE WEEK CHALLENGE." Nothing else is necessary, unless you want to continue the tradition of the tagline, "Created & Published by the @&$#!! Members of Conceptarts.Org Forums."

    .................................................. .............................


    Good luck.

    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.

    There's a lot of room to mix the two topics up here as well. If they don't respond to this challenge, I think the pandering is definitely lost on the CA Crowd. How about Little Lulu - themed challenges into infinity?

    Also worth noting that you can get Popular Tales from the Norse for free for your Kindle, Kindle Smart Phone or Desktop App. That's 0 dollars and 0 cents folks - the research starts there.

    Too bad I don't have an e-book reader. Reading books on a computer screen kinda sucks

    Anyway. Nice topic. I think I'll try to make something for this. Started sketching on a character... The idea is to have a girl sneak onboard a viking ship disguised as a boy so she can join the raids... Though I haven't really figured out anything more about the story than that.

    tobbA it's true that reading ebooks on screen can be wearing after a bit, but I still recommend the download - the stories are super-short, you can breeze through a few pages and get all the details of each myth. It's easier than getting the details off wikipedia anyhow. Your Viking Girl is looking nice. She might need a fake beard to pull off her disguise though!

    arttourney that is a beautiful start, heralding a triumphant return! Good to see you gracing these pages again. Thud the Re-Slayer!

    Tobba That's a nice drawing It's always fascinated me, those stories of girls dressing as boys to sneak onto naval ships, I even nearly joined the navy myself until I saw the training video and reality sank in! It ain't no picnic! lol Anyway, nice start I agree with Donal about fake facial hair, or she could just cover herself with mud to look like a scroat that no-one wants to touch (that's what I would do anyway)

    Arttorney Great start I'm definitely intrueged (or is it intreuged? meh!).

    j.s Glad you found somewhere to move to

    Logo WIPS for opening page. Something seems to be wrong with Attachment Manager so I've posted them in an unorthodox fashion.

    For anyone who's looking for info about vikings this site I found (from a few seconds on google ) has loads of info on everything from clothing and weapons to history and daily life.

    I am so busy these days I will have no choice but to work on this daily, showing incremental progress. Large blocks of time will probably not be available.

    Daily work is probably the best way to go about these things anyway.

    Next up, figuring out how to work the "animals" and "plants" content in my Vue 9 Complete for that initial splash title page. (I'll show a screen shot of the working views in the program so you can see I am not using a photo for the background.)

    Is it going to offend anyone if Thud is from the naked and hairy Homo habilis days?

    I think I'll have to insist on it.
