    P.O.W.! 71 - Chemicals of the Deep

    We're back! Let's see how this goes...



    In all P.O.W.! Challenges, 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 71A: The Creature(s) from the Deep
    There's creatures in the, um, deep. But are they hostile? Friendly? Misunderstood? Magical? Demonic? What happens when they emerge into humanities domain?

    Topic 71B: Chemical Imbalance
    Wide open topic on this one - interpret "Chemical Imbalance" - a chain reaction in a weird new chemical, a disorder that sets off a mass murderer or a date that one thinks is great but the other thinks is terrible? You tell us, in this P.O.W.!

    One or Both-Deadline: Wednesday, September 04th, 2013, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.

    You can present your solution as a minimum of TWO pages to any practical maximum you wish. Previously, we encouraged standard comic book pages, but it's beyond time to broaden the challenge in P.O.W.! Your pages can be any format, but make sure they line up to the same specs for each page.

    Standard comic specs are 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 TWO 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)


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


    Good luck.

    To all of you who have supported the P.O.W.! Challenges, from the bottom of my heart I thank you. Cheers you guys. P.O.W.! People are the best people.

    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.

    I need to get back into creating comics. I'm game. Both could be good to play with.

    I've been waiting for this to come back! These sound like some really fun ideas to play around with.

    Nice one you guys. I'm working on an idea where Creatures from the Deep (Space) meet Creatures from the Deep (Ocean).

    j.s., that is one outstanding looking page. I really like the character/creature designs. The Golden "ghost girl" is eye-catching and the serpenty thing with the woman's face? woman-thing draped over it? is super creepy.

    I've finally figured out why I can't get on CA half the time, and it's not CA - or not entirely CA - and more my crappy cable modem. We're replacing it tomorrow, or our ISP is anyway. Yay!

    Let's say there's a few more days on this one, at least until I get a chance to get organised. The new topics will be up shortly!

    I think you count as a default winner for this one, if that makes you feel any better. See what you can do for #72!
