Happy New Year's Eve, Fanart Recs! For my last entry of the year, this is where we should all meet up in 2012 *nods* I'll bring the coconuts, you bring the rum.

Fandom: Age of Sail, Pirates of the Caribbean
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Anamaria/Elizabeth Swann
Content Notes/Warnings: probably NSWF for fully-clothed making out
Medium: digital
Artist Website/Gallery: The Theban Band, [deviantart.com profile] theband
Why this piece is awesome: I love the bright colors that make me think of a tropical storm on the way, and the beautiful pose, the way Elizabeth and Anamaria fit together. It's both very calm and very passionate.

Fandom: Age of Sail, Master and Commander
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Stephen Maturin, Diana Villiers, Michael Herapath, Louisa Wogan
Content Notes/Warnings: possible spoilers for Desolation Island (Patrick O'Brian)
Medium: digital, drawn on Wacom tablet
Artist on DW/LJ:
Artist Website/Gallery: http://paisley-pearl-peony.deviantart.com
Why this piece is awesome: I love the bright poppy colors, and the way the four figures each seem to be in their own dream, everyone gazing in different directions. I especially like the way Diana and Louisa have such opposite expressions, haunted and playful, and I like the poppies reflected in Stephen's glasses.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sharpe (as played by Sean Bean)
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Why this piece is awesome: This was a New Year 2010 artwork *attempts to be seasonal* I adore Mucha, and this piece works wonderfully with the green and the yellow and browns, the stylized designs and all the lovely details. The artwork is huge, if you click through. There's a fabulous 8-panel 'making of' that goes from line art to finished, colored picture which I enjoyed for the artistic process.

Fandom: Age of Sail
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin, with appearance of Tom Pullings, Killick, Random Middies, Sailors and one OMC + animals + birds....
Content Notes/Warnings: SFW
Medium: ink; watercolors
Artist on DW/LJ: [livejournal.com profile] johanirae
Website: http://johanirae.deviantart.com/ and http://johanirae.tumblr.com/
Why this piece is awesome: It's a fancomic (set to the 12 Days of Christmas... kind of!) with panels in black and white and glorious full-color watercolor, manga-style. I love the way each panel sets up one hilarious situation after another. The koalas... the wombats... the 'cormorants'. I think the 7 Middies Collecting is my favorite, though: their childlike glee in mahem/'help' is very familiar.

Fandom: Age of Sail (Master and Commander)
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Gen (could be read as slash)
Content Notes/Warnings: None
Medium: folded paper, scissors

Artist Website/Gallery:
Why this piece is awesome: A couple of years ago, [livejournal.com profile] ldhenson did a spectacular series of fandom paper-cut snowflakes. You know, the kind where you fold the paper into triangles and cut out designs... which in this case is a lovely intricate ship's wheel adorned with cellos/violas, evocative of the friendship between Jack and Stephen. It's a simple, repetitive design (being a snowflake), but it's an absolutely perfect symbol for canon as well, the ocean and culture combining, like the best graphic logos. /fails at words, waves hands descriptively
Link: "Oh, oh, oh," cried Jack, leaping on to a chair. "A snowflake!"
