What IS Anthropomorphic Art?

What is Anthropomorphic Art?

Anthropomorphism or personification is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to other animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as organizations, governments, spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid-1700s. Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek ἄνθρωπος (ánthrōpos), "human" and μορφή (morphē), "shape" or "form".

As a literary device, anthropomorphism is strongly associated with art and storytelling where it has ancient roots. Most cultures possess a long-standing fable tradition with anthropomorphised animals as characters that can stand as commonly recognised types of human behavior. In contrast to this, conventional Western science, as well as such religious doctrines as the Christian Great Chain of Being propound the opposite, anthropocentric belief that animals, plants and non-living things, unlike humans, lack spiritual and mental attributes, immortal souls, and anything other than relatively limited awareness.

Hello, I would like to enter the contest but I can't find out how. I need really specific directions because I'm pretty new to this. Do I go to the picture I want to enter or is there a button on the link...? Sorry if this bothers you!
KovoWolf Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Professional General Artist

I will be happy to help you.

After you finish your piece and you are ready to submit it, when you choose the category in which you are sending it to, make sure enter it into this category: Contests -> 2013 -> Anthro Challenge -> A mothers love ( this is the current contest )

This contest, A Taste of spring is no longer up :)

So sorry, I still don't understand. Which button do I press and where is it? Is it on the link or on the picture I want to send?
KovoWolf Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Professional General Artist
There is no button to push :)

Are you trying to enter this contest? If so, this one is closed. We have a new one that is posted over at #anthrochallenge on the main page!

You need to submit it to that category for it to go into the 'contest gallery' to qualify.

Our latest contest is A Mothers Love. So for example you would want to submit it here: [link]
