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.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: the angel Islington
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: watercolour
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: lamorien on DA
Why this piece is awesome: I so admire anyone who's adept at watercolours, and this is a lovely piece,with a limited colour palette making it even more striking. Also interesting as the angel is loosely based on Cumberpatch who read the part in the BBC radio production recently. I like that it suggests him without being too exact. The use of white space is very effective as well.

Medium: digital art

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

Why this piece is awesome: I love this depiction of Illuin. The light is so gloriously bright and fresh and I love the way it glitters on the sea and lights up the trees and clouds. You can really imagine it illuminating the whole of Arda.

Link: Illuin (Spring of Arda)

I missed the usual reminder post timing (where did August go?!) but there are still reccers needed for the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for September with these fandoms:

* American Gods ([personal profile] mific)
* Kingsman: The Secret Service ([personal profile] dancing_serpent)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in September, 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 NO reccers have 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.

No Open Rec period this month, because this post is so late, and few seem to use these anyway.

(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: Door, and the Marquis de Carabas
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: coloured papers - papercutting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: yutaan on DA  and yutaan on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: A gorgeous piece of papercut art, using coloured and patterned papers to amazing effect. I love all the tiny details, like the ribbons and Door's fingerless gloves and spotted sock! And the Marquis is suitably dashing - it's very cleverly done and absolutely captures them both.

Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: pencil?
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] ancaxbre

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a beautiful work. The way Aule and Yavanna are depicted both as personifications of their respective elements and as people is very intriguing. And I love the myriad of details and the serenity of their faces.

Link: Aule and Yavanna

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: the glory and fall of Numenor with assorted kings, elves, Maiar and Valar
Content Notes/Warnings: n/a
Medium: digital art
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] breath-art

Why this piece is awesome: A beautiful work from one of my favourite Silmarillion artists. The colouring in this piece is not as bright and jewel-like as in many of the artist's other works. But to my eyes the more sombre palette adds to the gravity of the piece. The way the colours darken from the top towards the bottom also cleverly illustrates the progressive darkening of Numenor as can be seen in the various depicted scenes from its history.

Link: glory and fallen of Numenor

Why this piece is awesome: Oof - apologies for the gap in posting more Neverwhere fanart, but RL's been hammering me with deadlines. Will fit the rest in before the end of August, promise! This is a beautifully detailed layered woodcut of London Below. I love the intricacy and the design, and the more I look, the more details from the book I notice. Really amazing work - and of course, click to see it up close.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the dreamlike feeling of this work. It's like a memory of a vision, more than a depiction of a "real" place.

Why this piece is awesome: A couple of months of Neil Gaiman recs coming up. This month, Neverwhere. I love the amazing perspective of the two worlds separated by the pavement, and also the colours that emphasise the alternate worlds. A brilliant way of depicting both London Above and London Below, with Door just about to open a way through.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a beautiful illustration of Valinor. The artist is clearly influenced by Tolkien's own art but they have a strong style of their own. The linework makes me think of engravings, it has the same combination of delicacy and strength.
