Why this piece is awesome: Roncheg has two amazing styles, loose yet detailed animated style and stuff like this, heavy and intense yet minimalist. The line work is wonderful and the piece is sexy without being explicit

Why this piece is awesome: normally I don't do the same artist twice in a month but I couldn't resist reccing this piece it's so gorgeous. How the artist makes these colors work I'll never know but it's a vibrantly alive portrait of Lydia that smacked me in the face enough to get me off my Sterek kick for a moment.

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.

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: Well, um. It's DEREK'S SAILOR SENSHI TRANSFORMATION. (Although, perhaps regrettably, there's no actual sailor suit involved.) Super awesome.

I think there's a rule out there somewhere to the effect that every fandom must have its Sailor Moon fusion (and I've had more than a few discussions about Scott McCall being a Magical Girl), but this is quite probably my all-time favorite example. It's beautifully drawn (mmm, line weights and spot blacks), and I love the little crossover details (Derek's claws appearing where the nail polish sequence would have been, his leather jacket being created out of the ribbons!). Even the panel layout and sparkle placement work really well. PRETTY WOLFIE SAILOR DEREK.

Incidentally, this is the last of my Teen Wolf recs for the timebeing, but I'll be starting on Sailor Moon tomorrow! ;)

Why this piece is awesome: There's something so messy and so elegant about this, all at once. I love this kind of sketchy-but-still-finished look. The composition's great, too, and their faces are very expressive. In general, I'm really into the whole "queen/princess and knight" trope you see in a lot of Allison/Lydia fanart ... this might be my favorite of the bunch.

Why this piece is awesome: It still cracks me up every time. This was one of the first pieces of Teen Wolf fanart I saw, when I got into the show back during Season Two! The loose, cartoony style fits perfectly with the goofy, frenetic subject matter, and it reflects my sense of the weird unbalance in the cast of the time: a pile of kids and, sticking out like a sore thumb, this hulking adult werewolf who was all mixed up in their drama (or more accurately, they were all mixed up in his). Things felt more like wacky hijinks than everyone's-(really)-gonna-die, back then (ah, nostalgia). The title's perfect, and so is Stiles's face.

Why this piece is awesome: So pretty! [personal profile] ataratah's style is so flowy and graceful, always, and I love the way the coloring works out here (very watercolor-esque). The premise is also super cute; I love the various characters' notes and chatter. (Admittedly, I'm a little biased there, but she took the idea and ran with it!) Once again, the whole series is worth a look!

Why this piece is awesome: kissingcullens has a really neat, illustrative style; their portrayals of characters' faces are a little cartoony (sometimes borderline caricature-esque) and so expressive. I particularly enjoy their Horror Illustration series (check 'em all out!) for their fun play with classic genre tropes, and this one is nicely on-point. It's very well-balanced compositionally, and the mostly-flat sepia color scheme is really effective. Also, it's always nice to see the spotlight on these underused (and awesome) characters! I love Erica's snarl of determination. <3

Why this piece is awesome: Apart from the generally lovely, graceful linework, I always appreciate fanwork that gives us glimpses of times in the characters' lives that the show doesn't portray. This is a really sweet little McCall family tableaux. (Cute take on the "juicing" pun, too.)

Why this piece is awesome: When it comes to fanart from live-action sources, I have a preference for work that adapts characters into its own coherent style; work that captures something about the character but certainly isn't super realistic. This is a great example of that. The characters are all instantly recognizable and distinct, but also clearly reimagined into the artist's visual world. The artist has made the characters her own.

Also, LADIES. One of the things that got me into Teen Wolf in the first place was the variety of interesting female characters (even though I'm not always satisfied with the way they end up). It's great to see them all together like this, especially the ones who you don't see represented often (I'm particularly delighted by Melissa & Victoria). The costume design is a delight; each outfits is exceptionally on point, creative and gorgeous and well-suited to the character. Plus, there's the whole lovely symbolic feel to it. Ugh. It's just so PRETTY.

Why this piece is awesome: I really love Kendra's sense of comic timing and simplified (but recognizable and well-realized) designs for the various characters. As the show's gotten darker and (in my own opinion) more frustrating, reading these recaps is an enjoyable way to lighten things up a bit ... I love fanwork than can make fun of its own source, while still celebrating it. Critical commentary is also occasionally included, which I appreciate.

Why this piece is awesome: Apart from just being really sweet, it's deeply satisfying to see such strong, simple design work. Making the first piece look like an actual book cover is a cool touch, one I don't see often! The whole thing is really a testament to the power of simplicity - the coloring is lovely too, without a whole lot of super-detailed shading. (The associated fic's quite good as well; I recommend it.)

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] hydrae, [deviantart.com profile] 2x2x2

Why this piece is awesome: It was extremely difficult to pick just one piece (or well, set of pieces) by hydrae; I love all their work so much. Their flowy, graceful lines, their use of symbolism and stylized layouts, the gorgeous gorgeous details and the unusual brightly-colored lineart ... I am a huge fan. These tarot cards are a really fantastic example of all those stylistic attributes, as well as being a nice, balanced set of images of the main cast.

There are so many amazing little touches! The callbacks to the Season 3 credits in Lydia's card (the tree being upside-down, and the reaching hands), the dynamic posing in Allison's (and those badass wolf designs), the way the mountain ash rises in smoke on from Stiles' hands but also appears to be flowing into blood below. Gorgeous. I highly recommend checking out the whole gallery. (Please note: it's full of stylized blood/injury imagery.)
