[sticky entry] Sticky: Sign-Up Post for Volunteers

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.

Art for the 2016 SGA Reversebang by loobeeinthesky (SFW)

Fandom: SGA (AUs)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: loobeeinthesky on LJ
Artist Website/Gallery: littlestarfighter's art on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: I'm playing catch-up with SGA-AU recs here, and this is another by loobeeinthesky - this one's on LJ and might otherwise be hard to locate. It's an Earth-based AU, with John as a missing C&W singer and Rodney either looking for him or aiding and abetting him. The collage-style art tells a gripping story all by itself, and as ever the likenesses are amazing. It's really excellent.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: loobeeinthesky on LJ
Artist Website/Gallery: littlestarfighter's art on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Sorry I'm so late with the recs this month - overloaded with a big challenge. I'm doing SGA alternate universe art this month, and this one is completely awesome - John and Rodney as WWII pilots in the Battle of Britain! John's in trouble as usual, and Rodney's keeping a stiff upper lip, but he's looking pretty worried. The likenesses are amazing, and they're both so dashing!

some sketches of stiles and derek by myrkky(SFW)

Fandom: Teenwolf
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ:n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Okay, I def have a thing for cartoony/stylized artwork -- it's a skill I envy; these are great examples of that. They do a great job of straddling the realism/caricature line. I also just really love the expressions the artist captures -- worried/anxious Derek and completely over it Stiles.

Neil and Andrew by Ziegenkind (SFW)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Neil Josten/Andrew Minyard
Content Notes/Warnings: None
Medium: Digital
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] ziegenkind 
Why this piece is awesome: The details are what really make this piece for me. Neil's happy expression, how tired Andrew looks, their interlaced fingers, Neil's hand on Andrew's leg, Neil's scars, the folds in the fabrics of their clothes, the dips in the seat from their feet, the light shining through the window. All of it adds up to make this incredibly beautiful picture. The sun shining through the window combined with the orange and brown shades used give the piece a warm feeling as well.

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.

Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ:n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: tumblr
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.

Artist on DW/LJ:n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: twitter
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.

Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] misspeya

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.
