First, Happy Fourth of July to the US! Free-dAvatars
I'm chucking the last challenge, since there isn't any interest, AND I'm making a change at the group.The Challenge Folder will now be open only to Members.
The group is getting way too many submissions from non-members that have nothing to do with providing free avatars to the community. From here on in, any deviant that isn't already a member who wants to submit an avatar to the challenge will have to leave the link in a comment on the journal or in a note to the group.

Fantasy is defined as:
.... a genre of fiction that commonly uses magic and other supernatural phenomena as a primary plot element, theme, or setting. Many works within the genre take place in imaginary worlds where magic and magical creatures are common. Fantasy is generally distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the expectation that it steers clear of scientific and macabre themes, respectively, though there is a great deal of overlap between the three, all of which are subgenres of speculative fiction.
The challenge can be anything pertaining to Fantasy. Magic, Supernatural Creatures, Wondrous Worlds, Ancient Myths, Gods and Goddesses... anything that can be construed to be part of the Fantasy Genre.
