Why this piece is awesome: Thought I'd take a break from the black and white hyper-realism, with a piece that uses watermedia to indicate the fogginess of distant, once-sweet memories. It's a snapshot of those four and a half minutes in 1864 when Damon and Katherine were happy together; I like the soft focus and the smile on Katherine's face.

Why this piece is awesome: Last time I mentioned the affinity for taking on 'shippy moments; next to Damon and Elena dancing together during 1.19 Miss Mystic Falls, this sexy early promo pic may be the most tackled. I like this interpretation the best of the many I've seen, for the willingness to stretch out the space used and play with the facial expressions in a way that's pretty, despite not being true to the original reference, and the great use of shading values.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a super common genre in TVD fandom, the interpretation of a (usually particularly 'shippy) scene in fanart form. In this case, we have a drawing of Stefan and Elena heading for second base in Elena's bedroom in the second season episode Plan B. I like that the two frames essentially turn it into a short, sweet comic, telling a story in the subtle change of Stefan's mouth and Elena's eyes.

Why this piece is awesome: Jenn's colourful drawings were my introduction to TVD fanart, and I was pretty disappointed to discover there aren't really any other fan artists drawing chibis. But that's okay, because these more than make up for the lack. Jenn's talent is taking a line of dialogue from the show or fanfic or actor interviews and creatively turning it into a 2D moment. Here we get Bonnie Bennett with her grimoire, with all her witch-y qualities exaggerated to produce a cute little scene.
