REBLOG EACH SET ON TUMBLR!
Set 1 (1-6) Set 2 (7-12) Set 3 (13-18) Set 4 (19-24) Set 5 (25-30)
~+*ULTIMATE SEPTEMBER MAGICAL GIRL INTERLUDE*+~
I ENCOURAGE ANYONE THAT WANTS TO READ THE BLURBS ON EACH OF THESE PIECES TO CHECK OUT THE TUMBLR LINKS ABOVE TO THE SETS.
That's where I rambled on about each of them more in detail. Characters featured here are 90% ones I already own that I've either revamped for this challenge or just cameoed for the fun of it, so if you recognize someone, that's probably why! *w*;
If you guys can't tell by now, the magical girl genre is my lifeblood. From random fan characters, assorted loose characters, or actual series Ty's helped bring conceptual life to like recently, this is one of those things I'm totally nuts for. I've wanted to do this challenge like crazy- far before the 30day Monster girls one, but I had to legit mentally prepare myself for it for a while before I could. OTL// I really like it when the genre is diversified, so things like super heroes and solitary heroines definitely feel magical girlesque to me, hence why some of these probably don't fit the frilly pink staple that is mahou shoujo. But yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this month long explosion of designing I did to kickstart my productivity again!
If you're interested, also check out my
Each was done in Paint Tool SAI on a 500x800 canvas with a tablet and lots of patience/endurance. I dunno how I survived. Text is added in PS7.

Wonderful choices also!! I'm happy you like them, thank you!
monster. the whole punky spikes and chains look to her, her mohawk the colors, her wings, tail horns...okay just everything.
pirate: I guess I'm just a sucker for pirates and I really like her outfit. also her hair And those teeth
medical: well I like things bloody and I like her outfit and her eyes are really cool and again those "sharky" teeth
Evil: I just love the way you drew her, and I like her owl face
Magical boy: well this is mostly because anything card (or chess for that matter) related tends to remind me of Alice in wonderland, which I love, so that, and his hair put him just above the rest because this was really hard to choose only five
5. Martial Arts. The colors! The lines! All of it!
4. Rainbow. Yeah, I have a soft spot for conventional beauties, I guess.
3. Evil. Just such a gorgeous and unique concept. I want a story about her.
2. Oldschool. That hair is full of dreams and I have a weakness for those eyes.
1. MAGICAL BOY!!!! Might be because that’s the direction I roll in, might just because you drew him well, but DAMN.
The harpy featured in evil (and the one for Goddess is her counterpart) do actually have their own story! Hopefully I'll be able to post something for it sometime. I'm happy you're interested though eek!! And oh my gosh I LOVED the way the oldschool character turned out SO MUCH I actually made her into a real character. Ahh!
Thank you so much, I'm happy you liked them!!
OKAY BEE HERE WE GO
CANDY CAT I CANNOT WITH HOW BRIGHTLY COLORED AND ADORABLE SHE IS.
I think my favorite aspect is her paws. And her big calves. Like she’s really really adorable and I think her body shape is wonderful.
THE GNOME AND ME ARE GOING TO DATE OAY We HAVE TO. I really like this design a lot. I like the mix of those dark forest colors but also getting the brighter yellows. Aaaand those lips.
BEE SPEARMINT IS THE CLASSIEST BEAUTY. WOW I LOVE THE WAY YOU DESIGNED HER DRESS AND HER WEAPON AND HER EYES AND THIS IS JUST LITERALLY ONE OF MY FAVORITE DESIGNS OF YOURS IN GENERAL.
The glowyness on your space lady is so cool. You’re so creative with these outfit designs. Does doing these challenges help you think more out of the box?
Nope sorry gnome I have seen god in the thighs and abs of raspberry rugby and we need to make love now. I REALLY LOVE HER DESIGN SO MUCH TOO. I LOVE YOUR DIFFERENT BODY TYPES and your overall improvement with depicting body types. I mean you’ve never been NOT GOOD but you just keep getting BETTER and it’s SO COOL TO SEE.
HOLY SHIT NEO FLORA CAN YOU SAY BADASS. I CAN.
Rainbow is very nice. I love the light arrow and how you didn’t really suffocate us with rainbows either while still making that the clear concept.
The Martial Arts girl is GREAT What a good expression and I like how the tail wrapping around her sort of completes the composition.
SAILOR GAAAAAY. THIS IS TOO CUTE. BABIESSSSSS. SKJDLKASJDLKAJADLD
I actually really like this concept of a goddess very much. Lovely subdued colors.
WOW THE WARRIOR WAY TO BREAK THE GENDER MOLDS AND THE MAGICAL

Keynote is super cute too. I’m in love with that adorable treble staff pun lmao
WOW EVIL. THIS DESIGN IS REALLY GOOD TOO. THIS IS SO DIFFERENT AND SO AWESOME. LOOK AT YOU GO BEE DAMN GIRL. Also wonderful job with the feathers, feathers are an actual problem for me rofl.

Princess and her colors and her design and her pose. Another immediate favorite.
Beautiful work Bee I am REALLY impressed with everything right now.
Aquatic looks like one of those quiet smart mouths. I love the arm guard very much here for some reason.
GUNSLINGER YOU ARE SO FUCKING COOL ROFL WOW LOOK AT THAT. Great job with the style experimenting here too wow.
MYTHOS YOU LLOOK SO SO CUTE. I like how you have the ability to make a design out of different shades of one color for the most part and it still looks so dynamic. Also UNICORN MAGICAL GIRL.
KIIIIING. THOSE BIGASS PAWS AND THE RIPPED KNEEHIGHS AND THE CHAINS AND EVERYTHING.
WOW MEDICAL YOU CREEPY SHIT STEP BACK FROM HERE OMG WHAT A GREAT FACE LMAO

FAIRYTALE IS SUPER CUTE LITTLE MISS MUPPEEEETTTTT. I LOVE THOSE BRAIDS AND THE BIG BOW. HOW BEAUTIFUL.

THE PAJAMAS look really really comfortable and I think the hourglass is a lovely touch.

*OPENS A WORD DOC I CAN'T HANDLE YOUR GAME RIGHT NOW* *CRACKS KNUCKLES*
1. CANDYCAT IS SOME OF MY FAVORITE PASTELBARF COMBINATIONS. ALSO FLUFFY AND SPUNKY AS SHIT BECAUSE REASONS. YEAH. I thought giving her REAL PAWS would be a neat twist away from nekomimis out the butt.

3. OH GOD I'M KIND OF A SUCKER FOR MY OWN DESIGN ISN'T SHE LOVELY AND REGAL AND ICEQUEENY I THINK I SHOULD DRAW HER AGAIN LIKE WOW *FLAILS*
4. ;//////)u(\////////; asdfvgbhjhnbgvfcdfhgsfg The challenge DOES help me loosen up a lot and just go with it- typically I tend to overthink details (especially in magical girl designs) so I get stuck easily. However in the case of this one... Her design is part of a uniform set for a story I've been cultivating for a few years so this is the current-most result of that. I'm slowly learning to scrap and revision designs. I'M REALLY HAPPY YOU LIKE IT THOUGH WOW *BUTTERFLIES*
5. OHNO A DIVORCE ALREADY 2 BULLETPOINTS LATER?? Well Cait you and Naf can pine for her intensely together. It's so bad that I utter her name (Julia) and Naf gets all tsundere out da butt, it's great. ALSO OHNO THE COMPLIMENTS AHH *MELTS INTO A PUDDLE*;;; I AM TRYING TO BE CONTINUOUSLY AMBITIOUS ABOUT IT I'M GLAD IT SHOWS ABUBUBUHHH
6. NEO FLORA GONNA FUCK THIS SHIT UP YEAH MAN
7. I really can't stand overused rainbow on anything, nevermind magical girls. I always picture any rainbow theme MG to be primarily white, so that's what I did here. Also stuff about light/prisms/reflecting stuff. YEAH. I'M SO HAPPY YOU FEEL ME MAN *CRAWLS ON HEAD*
8. MAN I DIDNT EVEN NOTICE HOW IMPORTANT THE TAIL WAS TO COMPOSITION TILL YOU SAID SO NOW I'M REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT WAH
9. ALL MY GAY SAILOR HAPPYFEELS CAIT MAN YOU DUNNO HOW GOOD IT FELT TO FANART THIS FOR THE FIRST TIME YOOOOO *FLIES INTO SPACE*
10. Q///)u(\///Q OHNO THAT MAKES ME HAPPY AH- even though she was sort of a stretch as far as goddess themes go, her story is legit pretty much yeah and I guess I liked the idea of something more humble cuz I'm not that great/keen on OP god characters.
11. THAT'S SOL FOR YOU MAN I DON'T TAKE SHIT FROM NOBODY IF I WANT A MASCULINE AS FUCK WARRIOR MAHOU I'M GONNA DO IT-- AND SHE'S A DRAGON FOR BONUS POINTS *EXPLOSION*

20. I GUESS I THOUGHT I'D TRY TO BE EDGY WITH SPOOPY ANGLES DID IT WORK *DIES*
21. Ancient gave me a whole lotta trouble but after I put colors on her dang yo. And her light dagger. I'm trying to nudge my style into catering to more bodyrolls because typically I never drew detials like that but ugh it brings in so much more diversity and realness to a character *flops over*
22. WEEEE OMG NO MONSTER IS NOT GWEN IT'S OKAY THOUGH gwen's too laid back to dress like such a rebel but yes this firecracker is bobbi she's a painter and a raging anarchist and a succubi in wwp? so i made her a magical girl for no reason because I wanted something else really edgy and unorthodox in a magical girl sense.
23. I STILL GIGGLE EVERY TIME I LOOK AT MUFFET SHE'S SO HOPELESS AND CUTE AHH
24. AHHHH THANK YOU /)///___///(\
