P.O.W.! Challenge 49
Deadline: Sunday,april 31, 2011, 11:59 pm anywhere in the world.
Topic: the motivational muse!
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.
let's just hope kitty makes it back too yell at me!!!!!

Whats going on with Pow?
Hey guys, Ilaekae seems to have been offline for a while now. I've been trying to get him through emails & facebook, but no response. I know he's had family issues and connection issues that have kept him off before, but this is longer than other times.
If anyone has any ideas about where to get word to him, shout out or drop him a line and tell him we're all hoping he's okay. I've been getting in touch with some admins and stuff, just to see if anyone has heard anything. Nothing so far.
POW! will get back on the road, I'm sure of that. There's a fair bit of community spirit alive here, it can't be denied. As soon as we can, we'll get it started again.
i think if something critical where to happen we would have heard about it.......it's probably family orientated....and he's just taking time off!!!
NOTE>:this challenge is ment too keep the contest running hell we haven't even polled in months so forgive me! for trying to keep the the ball rolling!
As for the challenges, POW's always had less activity than the others, except Teen Challenge until recently. Why not start a sketchbook group or something based on POW like activities?
Example, making mini comics every couple of days, or practicing certain aspects, like colouring, inking, etc?
i like the idea idea of starting a sketch group that would be epic....
but P.O.W is all about doing it on your own.......making the deadline or not! it's really hard, even harder to win (unless your waterbird hehe..)shit i rarelly get any votes....but i like the sting of defeat it drives me, whether it be by competators hand or my own....
So i'm sticking to my guns with the origenal template untill told other wise.....my weekend starts after tommorrow and dammit i'm gonna make some panels!.......even if it kills me....

So, just motivational muse? Or is there more of a description/brief?
The Law of Fives states simply that: All things happen in fives, or are divisible by or are multiples of five, or are somehow directly or indirectly appropriate to 5
The Law of Fives is never wrong.

Agreed-- I didn't even make the last one (had to travel before I could finish) but I'm planning on working on it when I get back, and even if I don't finish it was a good push. I think even with the low number of participants it's still worth it. It's just that, you have to do so so much for this contest. So it's never going to be easy for people...
I've been doing a lot of comic jobs lately and I wanted to brush up my skills by taking on one of the POWs, but it seems half dead.
I've watched the challenges in the past, and yeah, there's always been few participants, but I kind of liked that. Although, with the way it is now, I'm pretty discouraged about entering.
I'd really love to enter a POW one day. Although I agree with what someone else said in that there are so few participants it can be a little discouraging. However I'll still give it a go in one of the next few challenges. Good to hear that the admin returned!

Don't know if this is even still going on, but I felt like trying it out anyways.
