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: This work does a great job depicting these three pilots as they would look as young adults. I'm particularly fond of Wufei and his no-nonsense attitude. And the colouring is just lovely.

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 May with this fandom:

* Yuri on Ice ([personal profile] ceares)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in May, 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 June, 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 May, June 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 April. 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.)

Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: BritClifford on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: This is a really great portrait of a messed-up, kind of emo-looking Jughead. The caption is "Every kid who has a brother or a sister has to deal with sibling rivalry.” - a quote from the actor who plays Jughead. The likeness is perfect, and it's an excellent, intense portrait of an interesting character.

Why this piece is awesome: I remember first first seeing these in 2003 when I was new to Gundam Wing. I loved them back then and found them just as charming when I recently stumbled upon them again. They're so cute and fun. I just want to cuddle them. My favourites are probably Howard, Noin, and the Quatre & Trowa pair, but all of them are just as adorable.

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.
