Why this piece is awesome: This is a Captain America/Star Wars: The Force Awakens crossover. The artist herself noted, "I kept thinking about Star Wars AU and had to add Bucky as a storm trooper, because guess who else broke their conditioning and escaped an evil organization?", which perfectly sums up why I think this piece works. I also love the casting of Steve as a Jedi, and Tony as a Resistance pilot.

Why this piece is awesome: Expert cartoon-style drawing in this series of illustrations for a twitter account about MCR badfic. I also like how the inspirational tweets are placed to balance out the drawn portion. Any day now I'll stop reccing Frank/Gerard fancomics, but this one is hilarious. Features circa-2005 Revenge-era Gerard and Frank and Gerard's snake tongue going in one of Frank's ears and out the other.

Why this piece is awesome: There's a lot of delicious colorful art by ghostparachutes to love, but I picked this one because I have found so little high-quality art of Lynz. There are two pictures in the post I linked, but I especially like the portrait of Lynz playing her bass--the red bandana and matching bloody knees (and hands!), the guitar, the hair, and the dark cloudy background.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a cute shippy comic with pining! Specifically I love how expressive vampire!Gerard's face is, plus his tiny vampire fangs. I also like how no one's arms bend correctly, but their wavy appendages just add to the energy of the piece.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a brilliant mash-up, perfect for the character. Instead of the mask, the Winter Soldier is muzzled like Max in Fury Road, and he has Furiosa's prosthetic in place of his high tech arm. He's got this feral look, nicely emphasized by the smear of black grease framing his eye and that snarl. He looks like he's been through hell, and he's just gonna keep on going. Great piece.

I'm reccing Bandom art this month, but my main interest is My Chemical Romance so that's mostly what I'll be reccing.

Fandom: Bandom (MCR)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero & Gerard Way
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional (ink drawing with pencil and marker?)
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] knameiess / [tumblr.com profile] jerseymisery

Why this piece is awesome: This is a delightful short fancomic depicting a scene from a fanfic ("I Have Been All Things Unholy" by Bexless). I especially like Gerard's expression of innocent friendliness and the limited color palette. The artist has illustrated several scenes from the fic with the same simple, but energetic style. (ESPECIALLY THIS ONE, sorry I couldn't choose)

Link: anyway, uh, i brought you a mattress or on tumblr

This one seems strangely relevant to our times...

Fandom: Captain America, Wonder Woman
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Steve Rogers, Wonder Woman
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Artist Website/Gallery: Gallery at DeviantArt
Why this piece is awesome: The composition in this is really great. I love Steve's very determined face, getting ready to punch some Nazis. Diana is beautiful, strong, confident, and harkens back to Lynda Carter's portrayal. I also like the throwing of the tank imagery, which reminded me of that awesome moment in the Wonder Woman (2017) movie. These two make such an amazing team-up, and the artwork really does their characters justice. :)

Why this piece is awesome: Starting with the cuteness - Rocket and Groot as a baby. A nice portrait with a perky Groot and a softer than usual Rocket. I like the details, especially Rocket's fur - enlarge it for the full effect.

Hi, everyone! This month I will be reccing Captain America fanart, but with a twist - they're all crossovers with other fandoms. Hope you guys enjoy. :D

Fandom: Captain America, Harry Potter
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, Peggy Carter
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Artist on DW/LJ: [tumblr.com profile] jovaline
Artist Website/Gallery: ARIELLE JOVELLANOS
Why this piece is awesome: It's a Hogwarts Avengers AU that really captures the essence of the characters if they were teenagers in a magical high school. I love Peggy as quidditch captain, strutting that confident attitude and pre-serum Steve gazing up at her all adoring-like. Perfect. *___*

Why this piece is awesome: Pearl and the Mystery Girl chat on the phone in a mostly still picture accented with small animated elements. I love the likenesses and bright colors, and the animation really kicks things up a notch, heightening the sense of connection and emotion.

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.)

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.
