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.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the slightly sketchy look of this picture. Luna looks great here. I love the slight sweetness of it, and Luna's soft smile.

Link: Luna Lovegood - Inktober 23rd.

Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: watercolour
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] graemeskinner / Graeme Skinner - Sketchbook

Why this piece is awesome: This is one of the loveliest night time scenes I think I've ever seen. It really evokes the dreamy peacefulness of a night time wander. The way the moon almost drowns out the start and paints the everything in a multitude of blue-gray shades is just perfect.

Link: Moonlit Wander
thady: (GK  -  Poke)
[personal profile] thady
Fandom: HARRY POTTER
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Gen; Neville Longbottom, ghost!Severus Snape, ghost!Nagini

Fandom: HARRY POTTER
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Harry Potter, Teddy Lupin
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital art
Artist on DW/LJ:
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] cookiecreation

Why this piece is awesome: I love how happy and familiar with each other Harry and Teddy are. Teddy looks great, I love the color of his hair and how happy he looks. Love the contented smile on Harry's face.

Link: Legacies.

I'm sneaking this in as it's still Nov 30th somewhere on the planet! :)

Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Daenerys
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Mehdic on DA
Why this piece is awesome: A gorgeous portrait of Daenerys in regal finery, on the iron throne. The likeness is amazing and I love her complicated expression and that she looks so strong here, as many portraits just show her as pretty. She's very much a queen, here.
Link: Queen Daenerys
musyc: Silver flute resting diagonally across sheet music (Default)
[personal profile] musyc
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Luna Lovegood (Gen)
Content Notes/Warnings: None.
Medium: Digital drawing
Artist Website/Gallery: anastasiamantihora at deviantart
Why this piece is awesome: While I enjoy the delicate lines and hints of shading, it's the premise of this artwork that I like most. Luna's looking so calmly at the postal owls, wondering which one will take her letter. The owls are either refusing to look or looking horrified. The little "no no no" written in around the perches cracks me up every time.
Link: Volunteer, on deviantart
juniperphoenix: Closeup of Connie's face while dancing (SU: Connie dancing)
[personal profile] juniperphoenix
Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Alexandrite
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: searoth on DeviantArt

Why this piece is awesome: One of the commenters on DeviantArt said "this image is fearfully and wonderfully wrought," and that about sums it up. The perspective — looking straight into Alexandrite's fanged mouth, framed by her many hands — emphasizes the monstrous, unsettling qualities of this character. I also love the coloring, which is interestingly textured.

Link: Alexandrite
turlough: art of young man on big dappled grey horse ((other) ut i vida världen)
[personal profile] turlough
Fandom: Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Edoras
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: ink?
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] erzsebet-beast

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a lovingly detailed drawing of Edoras. It feels very real.

Link: Edoras, Golden Hall of Rohan
musyc: Silver flute resting diagonally across sheet music (Default)
[personal profile] musyc
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Luna Lovegood (Gen)
Content Notes/Warnings: None.
Medium: Digital drawing
Artist Website/Gallery: 7lisa at deviantart
Why this piece is awesome: I especially enjoy the strong lines and textures/colors of this artwork. Luna's wand through her hair is a great detail, and this particular piece really emphasizes her dirigible plum earrings.
Link: Luna Lovegood, on deviantart
juniperphoenix: Closeup of Connie's face while dancing (SU: Connie dancing)
[personal profile] juniperphoenix
Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Garnet, Pearl, Amethyst, and Lapis
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: DreamerWhit on DeviantArt

Why this piece is awesome: If you enjoy the style of Alphonse Mucha, don't miss this beautiful set of portraits. I love the rich colors and all the carefully thought-out details, like the old-fashioned reimagining of Pearl's outfit, the fountain behind her, and the callback to "Mirror Gem" in Lapis's surf-washed halo.

Link: Steven Universe Art Nouveau
musyc: Silver flute resting diagonally across sheet music (Default)
[personal profile] musyc
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Luna Lovegood (Gen)
Content Notes/Warnings: None.
Medium: Digital painting
Artist Website/Gallery: numyumy at deviantart
Why this piece is awesome: I love the way Luna is looking at the viewer. The way the artist has painted her eyes makes them look like you're staring into the infinite deep, just how I imagine Luna looks at the world. The glow of her hair against the dark backdrop is a fantastic contrast, and the addition of the upside-down Quibbler is a great nod to canon.
Link: Luna Lovegood, on deviantart
turlough: space photo ((other) colourful space)
[personal profile] turlough
Fandom: Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: the Gates of Argonath at night
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: pencils
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] ethalenskye

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a cool depiction of the Pillars of the Kings. I love the nighttime lighting.

Link: Night and the Argonath
mific: (Tyrion)
[personal profile] mific
Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sansa Stark
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional painting/inkwork
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: aquiles-soir on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is a really strong picture of Sansa, later in the series, when she's seen too much and toughened up considerably. I like that she's strong rather than pretty, and that you can see how cold it is up in the North from her reddened nose - Winter is Coming, after all. Great subtle use of colour, especially in her eyes. Definitely worth enlarging for the details.
Link: Sansa

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have three volunteer reccers who signed up for December with these fandoms:

* Harry Potter ([personal profile] thady)
* Star Wars ([personal profile] musyc)
* Stranger Things ([personal profile] mific)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in December, it would of course be awesome if we had 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 ONE reccer has volunteered for January, 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 December, January 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 November. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Gloomy", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they 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.)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Galadriel
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: gel pens
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] ancaxbre / [tumblr.com profile] artbyanca

Why this piece is awesome: I love the style of this artist with its intricacy and mix of figurative and non-figurative elements. I particularly love the autumnal colour palette in this work and the look on Galadriel's face.

Link: Galadriel's song (DeviantART) or here (Tumblr)
juniperphoenix: Closeup of Connie's face while dancing (SU: Connie dancing)
[personal profile] juniperphoenix
Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Garnet vs. Jasper
Content Notes/Warnings: canon-typical violence
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: ayhotte on DeviantArt

Why this piece is awesome: Garnet looks so three-dimensional I could almost reach out and touch her, while Jasper's reflected image remains cartoonish and flat — a contrast I love, considering this is set during the song "Stronger Than You."

Link: Made of Love
mific: (Tyrion)
[personal profile] mific
Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Khal Drogo
Content Notes/Warnings: bare pecs, like you get with the Khal
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: KatieShock on DA
Why this piece is awesome: This is a really strong portrait of Khal Drogo. I love the in-your-face 3D-ness of it, and the details of his hair, and the tatt and pecs and the ridiculous beard. And hi, Jason! A bonus for me, as a die-hard SGA fan. :) 
Link: Khal Drogo
turlough: My Chemical Romance, sleepy boys in WWII uniforms, behind the scenes Ghost of You video, May 2005 ((mcr) hurry up and wait)
[personal profile] turlough
Fandom: Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: The Fellowship in the Misty Mountains
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: watercolour?
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] s-u-w-i / [tumblr.com profile] s-u-w-i

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fun and original work. I love the happy hobbits and grumpy Aragorn and Boromir, and the way the white-on-black somehow makes the details stand out more.

Link: The Fellowship of the Ring (DeviantART) or here (Tumblr)
