Why this piece is awesome: Teenwolf is coming to and end and I wanted one last pass at the beautiful artwork produced for this show. I'm all Sterek all the time so that will definitely make up the majority of the recs this month. Starting with this piece which is dark, gorgeous and intense. I love the expressions on their faces and this pic generates a thousand ideas about what's going on. The artist skill with light and shadow and hatching and Derek's beard is a thing of beauty.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a beautiful picture of the Lamp Post among the snowcovered trees. I love how still and silent it looks. Almost desolate.

Why this piece is awesome: Because hurt/comfort Moomins! Extremely cute art, and for some reason I find Steve's hair especially hilarious on a Moomin. Gorgeous and very funny.

Why this piece is awesome: can't let the month go without posting at least one straight portrait as well. This is just gorgeous. I love this artist's style. There's an ethereal delicacy to Yurio's face and at the same time, it has a sense of realism. I feel like I could see him on a billboard or movie screen somewhere.

Why this piece is awesome: can't let the month go without posting at least one chibi. This double image is an adorable before and after. If you're familiar with the show, the drunken shenanigans portion will come as no surprise and Yurio's expression perfectly encapsulates his angry/exasperated/embarrassed teenage life.

Why this piece is awesome: This is an animation of Steven and Connie fusing into Stevonnie. It's sweet and joyful. I like the bounciness of their hair and the little detail of Steven's shoes getting left behind.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post (overdue actually *wince*), and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have four volunteer reccers who signed up for June with these fandoms:

* Dragon Age ([personal profile] dreamkist)
* Narnia ([personal profile] turlough)
* Stargate Atlantis ([personal profile] mific)
* Teen Wolf ([personal profile] ceares)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in June, 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 July, 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 June, July 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 May. 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: Mechas in action is another popular subgenre in GW fanart. This is a very nice example. Full of energy and movement and with a lovely colour palette.

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

Why this piece is awesome: This picture does such a great job of capturing Pearl's determination through her face and posture as she squares off against an unseen opponent. The background landscape of smoke and debris and the diagonal streaks in the sky amp up the dramatic impact.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Bucky Barnes
Content Notes/Warnings: Naked torso. His amputation is clearly shown, as this is supposed to be before the arm was attached. The stump's healed and staples closing the wound are visible.
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: annetheviking on tumblr and her Bucky Barnes & Cap works are here
Why this piece is awesome: Amazing, amazing artwork and likeness. This is supposed to be before they attached his arm, and we almost never get to see him like this, before he really became the Winter Soldier. He looks so terribly vulnerable - it's a heartrending piece. I don't usually rec more than one artwork by the same artist in a set, so I'll just point you to this follow-up piece by the same artist, for a happier Bucky, post-recovery. Also note the graffiti on his arm. :)
Link: Bucky Barnes - absolutely click through to see it up close.

Why this piece is awesome: Two more pieces that share a similarity. In this case, I love the strong lines and angles of these. This one has a particularly neat POV that's hard to capture and more fun because of the artist's creativity with it. Again with the cute flushing as well.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a colorful depiction of Peridot as Connie's math tutor. I love the characterization in this piece — it makes perfect sense that Connie would be eager to absorb alien knowledge (or eighth-grade math, as the case may be), and Peridot is in her element when she gets to be the technical expert.

Why this piece is awesome: Two more pieces that share a similarity. In this case, I love the strong lines and angles of these. The light and shadow of this one is terrific; they look like they are at the rink with stage lights on them, and I love you can see the faint flush on their faces.

Why this piece is awesome: I love artworks of Steve as an artist, and this is excellent. Good likeness, and I love the colour contrast with the pic in grayscale and only the actual paint smears in colour. His eye's perfectly trained on us, so it seems like he's painting our portrait as we look at the art. Very nicely done.
