1 Hour 1 Page Challenge
« on: Apr 16, 2013, 10:28 AM »
Welcome to the 1H1P Challenge
You have one hour to draw one page of a complete self contained comic!

Like this!

http://fav.me/d61wlqe

The rules are simple:

1. ONE HOUR - From the time you agree on, you have one hour to draw your comic. No particular amount of detail is required for submission. You could have nothing but scribbles or a fully colored masterpiece, it doesn't matter. This is a test to see what you can do with an hour of dedicated work. The moment your hour is up, you are only allowed to scan your work (if traditional), change your comics resolution/size if necessary for proper viewing, save it, and upload it somewhere so people can see it!

2. Find some friends - Although this challenge can me taken on alone, it's recommended you find at least two other people to draw along with you. It's so much more motivating knowing others are drawing against the clock with you. Try the dA chat if you're looking for participants, there's almost always somebody idling around in there who should be drawing!

3. Prep time - Generally, we allow for a half hour preperation time before the hour begins, to set up your drawing space, open your programs, find any refs you think you might need, grab a drink, and otherwise do anything you need to in order to spend the entire hour drawing. This isn't mandatory, but recommended since not everyone is ready at the drop of a hat. We want to see what an hour of drawing nets you, not 25 minutes of drawing and 35 minutes of looking for the right reference.

4. Self-contained - These are not serial comics, nor intended "to be continued". Each comic is an exercise both in time and in writing a single self-contained story. No matter if you have a 17 panel epic conversation, or a 3 panel Garfield joke strip, it should begin and end on that single page.

That's pretty much it! Find some fellow artists and see what you guys can come up with, or challenge yourself and post the fruits of your labor. I'll be trying to see if I can start more of these challenges myself, but feel free to do so on your own!

It would seem the "1 page" part of this little challenge was too difficult for voids majesty and it spilled over a bit. But it's still one hour of work, and some SERIOUSLY fine work indeed from Underwood and Kent! Maybe next time you two will stick to a single page...

or maybe I should change the thread to just 1 hour challenge...

Ah well, either way brilliant work you too!

I think you should retain the challenge as is, it's interesting that way.  I was actually intending at one point to have one of the Void U. Rounds be about one page comics as it's an interesting skill to develop.  Granted this version ups the difficulty.

I've been trying to do these, with varying degrees of success. I knocked one out today in just an hour to try a different style... still not sure what to think of it.

I am terrible at drawing on a tablet (or maybe just in general) but I will continue to defy fate:

I'm doing this.  I'll prep and start drawing at half-past.

[Edit:]  Didn't quite get the whole story, and I didn't get to draw for quite the whole hour.  So it's more like four panels in forty minutes.

I'm a walking talking example of "If you don't use it, you lose it."
