If you would like to volunteer for fanart reccing (please do!), just comment here with the name of the fandom you want to rec as well the month if you can't just take the next free slot. If you volunteer to rec fanart for a fandom, you agree to post at least four fanart recs during your month.

Once you commented to volunteer, a moderator will reply to confirm, and add you to the list of fandoms and volunteers that is also kept here to keep track, so everyone can see which fandoms have volunteers, and which don't.

You also have to join the community so that you can get posting access during your month. For information on how to format your recs, please take a look at the Intro Post, which has a convenient template.

ETA (Apr. 2016): I've cleaned up the list and removed the pre-2016 entries for more clarity, but left the fandoms that previously had reccers as subsection titles. Of course all fandoms are options for rec sets, not just those already listed.

turlough: Quatre & Trowa & Heero & Duo & Wufei with space colony interior in the background ((gw) gundam boys)

Fandom: Gundam Wing
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Wufei
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: watercolours
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] fastpuck / [tumblr.com profile] dragonhusbands

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a gorgeous portrait of Wufei. Not only because he's laughing - an unusual and welcome sight :-) - but also because of the way the broad brush strokes sculpts his face and upper body with their lovely shades of tans and blues.

Link: laughing for once (DeviantART) or here (Tumblr)

Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Severus Snape (an Alan Rickman tribute)

Why this piece is awesome: I just really like this imagining of Snape as a youth, and it's great to see Alan Rickman in his gorgeous days as well. Nice sepia colouring, too.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have NO volunteer reccers who signed up for April.

So it would of course be awesome if we had some recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for May either, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for April, May or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of March. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Snape et al (see below the pic)
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: Traditional art
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: TomScribble on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is Snape (Rickman) tribute month, but I couldn't resist this one as it's such a wonderful ensemble piece, enormously atmospheric with the glowing light and deep shadows. I love the way Snape's glaring suspiciously at the viewer, a bit on the outs, and Crookshanks, and Kreacher, and just everyone! They're all so recognisable, and the dark old furniture is excellent. Really great!
Link: The Order of the Phoenix
turlough: space colony, Endless Waltz ((gw) islands in space)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Heero Yuy
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: digital art
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] natea21

Why this piece is awesome: I love the duality of this work. The way it uses inside and outside, Earth and space, night and approaching dawn, Heero and his reflection connected through the palm of his hand in the centre of the picture. It's quiet and thoughtful and lovely.

Link: Reflections
turlough: Une with gun facing the viewer ((gw) die! die!)

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a great portrait of Lady Une. I particularly love the way the artist has rendered the rich textures of her uniform jacket and hair.

Link: Lady Une
turlough: Duo Maxwell sitting on top of scrap heap, Endless Waltz ((gw) scrapping to get by)

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fun portrait of Duo. I love his relaxed pose and the sardonic look he gives the viewer.

[personal profile] mific
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Snape
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Felixavenier on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This month I'm going to do an 'Alan Rickman as Snape' tribute - I had to pick a fandom/character and this one'll have the most varied art, I think. Starting off with Snape and his patronus, a lovely piece with all the layers of meaning indicated by the title, because Lily's patronus was a doe, so Snape's was as well. I also love the way the doe seems to be yearning up towards Snape. 
Link: Remembrance
turlough: Quatre & Trowa & Heero & Duo & Wufei with space colony interior in the background ((gw) gundam boys)

Why this piece is awesome: I love the clear linework and bright colours of this. The grunge-y textures are a nice addition.

Link: gundam.wing

I've been feeling in a nostalgic mood lately so I went hunting for Gundam Wing art.
mific: (Westworld Dolores)
[personal profile] mific
Fandom: Westworld
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Dolores Abernathy
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Fantasio on DA
Why this piece is awesome: A lovely portrait of Dolores, and chilling, showing her android inner workings as it does. A metaphor for Westworld as a whole, amazing realism on the surface, and dark mystery underneath.
Link: Dolores Disassembled
juniperphoenix: Closeup of Connie's face while dancing (SU: Connie dancing)

Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Steven Universe
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] dashawnmahone's art tag

Why this piece is awesome: Here's a portrait of Our Hero to finish off the month. This piece was posted during Season 1, when Steven's life was a good deal simpler than it's since become. There's a hint of idyllic childhood in the quiet seaside setting, the cheeseburger backpack, and how small Steven looks next to his ukulele — but at the same time, his pose and the windblown landscape create a sense of standing guard and gazing out toward the future.

Link: I believe in Steven

Why this piece is awesome: Based on Witches Going to Their Sabbath, the artist did a fantastic job of adapting the painting to fit the characters and the show. The details are a wonderful tribute to moments throughout the series.

Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ:n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Once again I'm picking a piece with a strong illustrative style. Particularly this reminds me of the cartoon El Tigre that my nephew and my mother both love. This is a great drawing of Hernando that perfectly captures his endless patient awesomeness.
Link: Hernando
turlough: detail from map of Middle Earth ((tolkien) the realm of gondor)

This is my last Tolkien rec. Next month I'm going to rec something completely different :-)

Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: BudapestA on DA
Why this piece is awesome: A great portrait of the enigmatic Man in Black, with an excellent likeness -- very intense.  I like that the portrait's so detailed and close, with the carnage of 'killed' androids sketched out behind him in the road. 
Link: Man in Black

I can't believe February is almost over already. But our regular reccer recruiting post to look ahead to the next month is overdue. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for March with this fandom:

There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing).

Why this piece is awesome: This is a terrific portrait of Amethyst. It feels very lifelike thanks to the shading, which lends a three-dimensional effect, and the warm, direct facial expression.
