Anime/Manga 100 theme Challenge

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 12, 2010, 7:58 PM

MA's 100 theme art~challenge!

As you know, anime and manga cover a great many things. Some are reminiscent of RPG's, some deal specifiably with sports, others with comedy. Here's a challenge- 100 different types for you to draw out! Can you be one of the few to "defeat" this mighty list!

For those of you who are unclear by what is meant by some I'll post in brackets under each number some examples, but by no means feel constrained to the example. Use your OC's! Make new ones! Execute the picture with what you feel would be best as long as it's anime/manga style :meow:

General 100 Theme Project Rules
You are by no means required to abide by these rules, but they give things a general structure.

1.)Do one hundred pictures each with one of the themes. Each picture should have ONE and only ONE theme each.

2.) There is no time limit but because of that you are expect to finished or finalize EVERY picture. This challenge is made to help build artistic skill so don't upload unfinished scribbles.

3.) The main picture should be drawn but not limited to just that, use any medium you want to create your master pieces.

3a.) Themed pictures can be used for trades, requests, gifts and etc.

4.) The list of themes should be placed somewhere in a journal so that other artists can see that you are participating in the challenge and so they can see how much you have completed. Don't forget to link back to this journal so others can do it.

5.) Make sure to update your list and check off what is done and make a link to the finished picture

6.) The title of the work should share the same name as the theme for it or at least stated in the description. Be sure to note in the description that the picture is for the challenge.

7) You don't have to do them all in order.

Challenge your friends to do this.
