Hellooo :happybounce:

Welcome back to our weekly feature. The theme this week is "Toys". As kids we can play all day with toys, and everything can be a toy, but usually they are miniature and abstract versions of people or objects. Lets see your suggestions for this theme:

Fantastic stuff, don't you think? I encourage everyone to full-view and show them your love (fav and comment) if you feel so inclined ;)

For those new here or interested in previous features, you can see our previous entries here…

Now for our next theme something very different:
:pointr: Subcultures

You know, people dress up and behave in a way according to a group, different from the general culture. Examples are hippies, punk, bikers... and in Japan in particular there are many subcultures that you may be aware of like ganguro girls, lolitas, dekotora and many many more. So we are looking for art showing some sort of subculture or many of them. As long as the drawing is also anime it will be considered. Also, like I always say, don't be afraid of suggesting creative interpretations of the theme, it's not only accepted but it's encouraged, so it has very high chances of being featured. You can suggest your own work or the work from someone else. Just post a link below.

Finally, remember I'm always open to suggestions for future themes. No theme is too weird, I will hear anything and it will likely be used eventually.

Now get postin' :eager:
