P.O.W.! Challenge 50
Deadline: Sunday, May 29th, 2011, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
50 Issues would be a big hit in the modern comic book world! Celebrate POW #50 with a strip about an Anniversary. This can cover any idea, topic, story beat, whatever, as long as you embody the idea of "Anniversary". Try and include some conflict/drama in the work, whether the exciting drama of a fight scene or the quiet drama of conflict between relatives.
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!
I'm posting this up to keep a fresh thread going while Ilaekae is out of commission, much like j.s. sebastian did, to his credit. It's looking like Ilaekae will be offline indefinitely, but if he turns up sooner rather than later, he's the boss, this thread can be superseded by his whim. Cheers & good luck!
