P.O.W.! Challenge 48
Deadline: Sunday, March 6, 2011, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
Topic: Kite Warrior...
The name's the best I could come up with. Sorry. What we're actually looking for here is someone who uses a non-powered flying device to "fight" or compete. I'm talking kites, hang gliders, para gliders, etc. The fight can be a competition between kite fighters, or a story about military/crime fighter/"heroes" who use such vehicles to do their jobs. For the sake of the story, I guess we can include "wings" that attach to the body in some way, BUT THEY CAN NOT be powered in any way other than by basic wind/glider methods. [Because I screwed the schedule up with my on-line problems, you actually have a bit more than three weeks on this one. Don't wait til the last minute...]
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 (almost) three-week Challenge period for a 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.
Again, this one is three weeks rather than the usual two weeks to see if it will allow more participation or just cause a lot more procrastination.
P.O.W.! Challenge 46 will be posted on Sunday Midnight, March 6, 2011.
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.
