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.

Why this piece is awesome: This is so great! Matt and Luke having lunch together on a rooftop, chatting away and gesturing at their city. They are bros! Love the details (definitely click to make it bigger) like the cheese dripping from Matt's burger, and the napkin on his leg. They both just look really happy and relaxed.

Why this piece is awesome: Now for some individual portraits of the Defenders. This is a great portrait of Jessica - in her colour, of course. I like how she's hovering over the city, both protectively as a Defender, but also watchfully, hunting for the bad guys. Great likeness and details.

Artist Website/Gallery: Pungang on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Reccing the Defenders this month, and I'm starting with an ensemble piece. They're each associated with a colour and that's shown here in a nicely subtle way, the drawing's good, the likenesses are reasonable and I really love how the artist's incorporated street maps of New York into the background of the four figures, given that it's the city they're associated with and largely based in. It's a good introduction to the fandom.

Why this piece is awesome: A double portrait inspired by season nine's "Face the Raven" episode, done before it aired but perfectly fitting. The colour scheme and the intense contrasts are striking and I love how the ravens mirror the characters.

Why this piece is awesome: It's got: dark humor, Frank Iero, and a limited color palette appropriate for the subject (yellow sun, black mood)! I love the sun's happy face in contrast with Frank's grim determination. This piece is also an illustration of a lyric from Stomachaches.

Artist Website/Gallery: Taking-meds Archive on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: My last rec for the month is a cross-over with the movie T2 Trainspotting. This piece is inspired. I absolutely love Bucky's confused expression, Sam with attitude, and Natasha's raised brow. And then there's Steve's facepalm in the backround - something about it just cracks me up. *g* Also, this artist is AMAZINGLY talented, so have fun going through all their archived art. :)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Rocket Raccoon
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: BiigM on DA
Why this piece is awesome: (Sneaking a last one in for August). Most of the footage and a lot of the art of Rocket is of him snarling, yelling and shooting very big guns. This is a nice change - a peaceful pic of Rocket chilling, just being a competent pilot. He looks content, and it was done after GotG2 so I guess he is, having found his family.  Definitely enlarge it for a closer look - the detail in his fur is great.

Why this piece is awesome: Pearl rests against the Moonbase mural of Pink Diamond. I like the interplay of light and shadow, not to mention the tremendous sense of backstory here.

Artist Website/Gallery: Followthepaws on DA
Why this piece is awesome:  Spoilery if you haven't seen these movies.
This is a lovely, somewhat sad picture of  Rocket caring for a newly-sprouted Groot, waiting for him to grow up. I love the softness and melancholy of the work, and that Groot seems to glow with light - but when you look at the pic again it's because Rocket is carefully holding his pot in the rays of light so he can get sustenance and develop.

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] rosto79

Why this piece is awesome: It's an explosion of vibrant colors and surrealist details! It's also a Pokemon crossover, which I'm not very familiar with, so I'm not entirely sure what's happening in this picture, but it's fun to puzzle out nonetheless. A diminutive Lola from Hesitant Alien also appears.

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

* The Defenders ([personal profile] mific)
* Steven Universe ([personal profile] juniperphoenix)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in September, 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 only ONE reccer has volunteered for October, 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 September, October 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 August. 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.)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Portraits of various characters in garden settings

Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] janematwain

Why this piece is awesome: This is a series of garden-themed pictures that so far includes Pearl, Amethyst, Steven, Peridot, Lapis, and Connie. I love the concept, the colors, and the wealth of detail in each of these — Lapis's picture even has water dripping out of the bottoms of the pots. There's some great characterization (Amethyst's version of a "garden" made me laugh). My favorite is Peridot's, which makes wonderful use of light and captures Peridot's nervousness about being able to take proper care of all these tiny Earth life forms.

Why this piece is awesome: The notes under the art are great - Zyden imagines this as how Rocket would train up baby Groot - starting with a water pistol. I love the energy in the picture and their fierce expressions, even in play.
