I just found out about the Magical March Drawing Challenge, and I’m so mad at myself I didn’t stumble upon it earlier!
It will certainly land on my Art Challenge calendar (still working on it). I missed it this year, but I definitely will join it next time!
Are you curious what Magical March challenge is about? Well, then you are in the right place because here I’m gathering all pieces o information about this challenge!
What is Magical March Drawing Challenge?
Magical March is an art challenge where artists draw a magical girl (or something related to this subject) every day for the month of March!
Each year people post a list of their prompt list, and based on it, they draw (usually) a character stylized as a magical girl (Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura are great examples of what you should aim for) – the drawing has to be related to a prompt word of the current day.
*Many people post their prompt list and allow other artists to use them. You can add, change and draw the themes as you please.
There are no limits regarding tools or drawing style, you can use digital and traditional media.
