Squeaking in with one more before the end of the month ... but it was so awesome I had to!

Fandom: Artemis Fowl
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Foaly
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Kotorigaro's Deviantart gallery
Why this piece is awesome: This is an absolutely pitch-perfect Foaly: half horse, half geek. I think the thing I love most about this picture is his body language - the artist has not only somehow managed to make him look perfectly natural sitting in a chair (no small feat for a character with a horse body) but his pose is also 100% "nerd at computer".

Fandom: Artemis Fowl
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Artemis Fowl, Holly Short, maybe hints of Holly/Artemis
Content Notes/Warnings: spoiler for The Lost Colony
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Tplayer's Deviantart gallery
Why this piece is awesome: These two images depict Holly and Artemis's moment of realization about the spoilery thing that happened to their eyes in The Lost Colony. The second is a more detailed digital painting of one part of the first image. It's a nice illustration for the scene in the books, and I like the stylistic contrast between the two images as well -- one is somewhat animation-styled while the other is more painted-looking.

Why this piece is awesome: I love this gorgeous fan-made "cover" for The Eternity Code. It has a very striking and dramatic layout, and a wonderfully sinister-looking Artemis.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Artemis, Holly, Butler, Mulch, Opal Koboi, plus misc. background characters, objects and locations
Content Notes/Warnings: none

Artist Website/Gallery: KangJason's Deviantart gallery
Why this piece is awesome: This is a portfolio of animation-style character designs for the Artemis Fowl cast, done by the artist as an illustration school submission. I stumbled across it while looking for good Butler art to rec (...there really is very little!) but I'm reccing it all in a group since it's thematically related and I don't really have a favorite among the different designs. These are really fantastic to browse through; all the major characters and several of the main locations (Haven, the Fowl Manor, Hybras) are represented. (I suppose this tiptoes around the borders of "fanart" since it's being done for a non-fannish purpose, but it's definitely not official art, so I figure it qualifies.)

Apparently continuing my efforts to never rec the same fandom twice *g*, this month I'm reccing fanart for the Artemis Fowl books!

Fandom: Artemis Fowl
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Holly Short
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital airbrushing
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: KalaNemi's Deviantart gallery
Why this piece is awesome: This is an absolutely stunning sci-fi style portrait of LEPrecon Captain Holly Short. Most AF fanart is done in a softer, more cartoony style, and while there's nothing wrong with that, this one really stands out for its sci-fi pulp style as well as its illustration quality. The general grittiness and cyberpunk tech fits the books very well. No spoilers.
