Welcome to the 148th installment of Anthro Challenge!

We're going to try something a little different this year by posting these journals at both of our main Anthro groups here on dA.
anthrochallenge will still be our main hub for the challenges but you will also find the journals posted over at AnthroCommunity in order to spread the word about our monthly challenge!

AnthroCommunity | anthrochallenge

Contest Deadline: October 31st

Time Deadline: 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time |


AC Theme: Magical Girls!

This month's theme is Magical Girls!

Magical Girls, also known as mahou shoujo or majokko, originated in Japanese manga and anime that describes girls who use magic.  Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura became wildly popular outside Japan and helped spread the term.  Magical Boys soon emerged as well.  Your challenge this month is turn your anthro characters into Magical Girls or Boys!  

Some inspiration.

Commission: Magical girl Platinum by Gokai-Chibi Magical Suu by MagicalZombie

Hi, I'm trying to submit an entry to the superhero contest, but when I click on 'submit entry' it seems to take me to 'Browse Entries'. Would you be able to send me a link to the gallery folder? Thanks :)
PixlPhantasy Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I moved it for you this time :)  When submitting your art to dA, for the Anthro challenge contests you go to Contests in the first list and look for the appropriate contest folder from there :)
In this case it would have been Contests / 2016 / Anthro Challenge / 135 - Superhero
