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 (Jul. 2017): I've cleaned up the list and removed the pre-2017 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.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for August with this fandom:

* Steven Universe ([personal profile] juniperphoenix)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in August, it would of course be awesome if we had some more 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 reccer has volunteered for September, 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 August, September 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 July. 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.)
sholio: Peter from Guardians of the Galaxy looking over shoulder (Avengers-GotG-Peter)
[personal profile] sholio
Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Peter Quill, Yondu Udonta
Content Notes/Warnings: some blood
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: rej11 on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Most of the pre-canon art about Peter and Yondu focuses on a really young Peter, so I like this one because Peter is in his mid-to-late teens. I love how this piece tells a whole story in one image, and the details are fantastic.

Artist Website/Gallery: GiannaRoseH on DA
Why this piece is awesome: It's a marvellous strong portrait of Diana on the horse, from near the end of the movie, wrapped in a fur-trimmed cloak and looking every inch the warrior princess. Also I love the colours.

sholio: Starlord with raccoon on shoulder (Avengers-GotG-Starlord with raccoon)

Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Skidar on Tumblr (artist's tagging is somewhat haphazard, but most of their other fanart can be found under the skidar-art tag)
Why this piece is awesome: Since the new movie came out, there's been a ton of excellent art about kid!Peter and Yondu, so it was hard to pick one to start with! I went with this one because it's very cute and lively with wonderful details, and I could totally see them getting into a situation like this.

[personal profile] sholio
I'm here to rec Guardians of the Galaxy this month! Most of my recs will contain spoilers for GotG2, though I'll try to avoid or cut anything REALLY spoilery in the description.

Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Nebula & Kraglin Obfonteri
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: sketch
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: CaptBexx on Deviantart | CaptBexx on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: This is an energetic piece that focuses on a minor character interaction in the movie and takes it to a playful conclusion. The simple but expressive sketchy/cartoony style works beautifully for the light subject matter.

Link: Kraglin & Nebula XD

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Diana Prince + friends
Content Notes/Warnings: fluff!
Medium: digital painting

Artist Website/Gallery: critter-of-habit's art tag on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: I'll give you a heroic WW pic next (in fact there's one in this artist's art tumblr if you scroll down a few), but this one's pure fluff, in every respect. After the baby and the ice cream, I think we all know this is exactly what would happen. My title, as tumblr posts are often untitled, the site not having made that a natural part of posting.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Diana of Themyscira
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Petieallemande on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: The new Wonderwoman movie's led to a flood of art, so that's what I'm doing this month. This is a beautiful, dreamlike picture of Diana in goddess mode - as the universe, her cloak made of stars. Lovely work.

Artist on DW/LJ: [personal profile] leyna 
Artist Website/Gallery: Leyna on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is one of my favourite artworks by Leyna, and a classic Stargate Atlantis AU to finish off June. I love the structure of the picture  with John and Rodney done  in cooler colours, outside in the evening in intense conversation - well, Rodney's talking of course, and John's looking serious and intrigued. Then the rest of the party inside, in the warmer, candle-lit drawing room. The likenesses are excellent and it looks so real - good for inspiring all sorts of stories!

Medium: photomanip
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: unknown
Why this piece is awesome: This manip surfaced a while ago, I think on tumblr, and it was confirmed that the creator was Merentha, as signed. It's such a classic, with John perfect as Solo and I love the way Merentha has blended Ronon and Chewbacca so Ronon really is Chewie. A classic AU fusion, and I wanted to memorialize it here.
Link: John Solo and Chewdexa  (sorry about horrible old photobucket, but press on past the pop-ups - it's worth it!)

Artist Website/Gallery: Randommindtime's art on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: These are portraits for a New York-based detective (Law and Order) AU where the team are in law enforcement - John and Ronon are cops and Teyla and Rodney are lawyers. They all look very cool and determined! It's really lovely work with nifty details, excellent likenesses and great colouring.

Why this piece is awesome: Roncheg has two amazing styles, loose yet detailed animated style and stuff like this, heavy and intense yet minimalist. The line work is wonderful and the piece is sexy without being explicit

Why this piece is awesome: normally I don't do the same artist twice in a month but I couldn't resist reccing this piece it's so gorgeous. How the artist makes these colors work I'll never know but it's a vibrantly alive portrait of Lydia that smacked me in the face enough to get me off my Sterek kick for a moment.

Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] goldendaniel

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fantastic portrait of Jadis. Very different from almost every depiction I've seen before, but very fitting both to her incarnation as the White Witch and as the Empress of Charn. Here she's both beautiful and scary and also looks very, very powerful.
