The Magical Girl Self Portraits of Tumblr

This weekend Tumblr’s artist community decided that they’d all draw self portraits as if the were the protagonist of a Magical Girl anime series, and I’m not going to argue with it. One you’re done looking at our gallery, you should follow the links to those Tumblr artists (and not just if you want to find out what their magical girl powers are)! Many of these are from their art blogs where there’s lots more lovely stuff to rest your eyeballs on.

    Anemone Ink is adorable. Hell, they’re all adorable. Dang, I need to do mine.

    Huh, whoddathunkit? A whole bunch of powerful/super girl drawings…and not a one with focus on boobs and butts! And comics told us it wasn’t possible…

    Well, it’s for the niche market.

    I need to do one of these. I liked the idea but last weekend was Gen Con and I was way too tired to do any such involved sketches. :)

    Times like this make me wish I was an artist instead of a writer. ^^;

    Haha, I spy a Grief Seed!

    These all become kinda depressing once you think of it in the context of Madoka Magica… ):

    They are all very striking and full of personality; I’d love to read their stories!

    I don’t have a Tumblr, but maybe I’ll draw an entry for myself. I’ve found the original challenge link: My only holdup is that I’m unsure how to interpret the first rule, “It has to be YOU.” Does “ME” refer to my real, physical body or my inner self-image? Those would result in very different pictures…
