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 (Jul. 2017): I've cleaned up the list and removed the pre-2017 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.

Why this piece is awesome: I love this threesome, and I really love how peaceful and relaxed they all are in this artwork, and the tender way they're holding each other and holding hands.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have only ONE volunteer reccer who has signed up for May with this fandom:

* Machineries of Empire ([personal profile] sigalit)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in May, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs next month. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccer has volunteered for June, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for May, June or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of April. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Content Notes/Warnings: Big fire
Medium: Digital illustration & 3-D render combo
Artist on DW/LJ: N/A
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] kirtemor
Why this piece is awesome: This is a really great representation (IMHO) of an oft-described in canon and roleplaying event: the fighting of Thread. It can be hard to visualize where the dragons are, and this artist did great bringing it to life.

Artist Website/Gallery: Quinsarqua on DA (JackyMedan on tumblr)
Why this piece is awesome: An iconic moment in due South, and for the fandom. :) And a great version of it with a digital technique that looks like traditional art. Also, love the way the bubbles are making hearts in the water!

Why this piece is awesome: I'm doing another round of due South fanart recs, collecting a few oldies and goodies, and some newer works. This first rec celebrates my exchange gift from [personal profile] wagnetic  in the recent due South secret Santa - and it's my best boy, Dief. I love his hilarious expression in this appliqué pic, and the very tasty-looking donuts. A perfect likeness of Dief, and the title's excellent, as well!

Artist Website/Gallery: keiku on DA
Why this piece is awesome: I like this digital rendering of the Orville alongside the Enterprise - the styles of the two ships are so different, with the Enterprise very familiar yet clearly old-fashioned and a bit boxy, compared to the Orville's sleek modern lines. Interesting!

Why this piece is awesome: And for last, another Lix/Randall drawing by Luluha, which is basically the polar opposite of the previous one. Here, they are relaxed, open, slightly dishevelled, and everything is illuminated by the morning sun, the colours radiant and warm.

Why this piece is awesome: Fascinating colour palette, once again Lix and Randall looking very sharp and stylish. Love the idea of the opaque glasses, the two of them hiding their past, their secrets, and their feelings.

Oops, I forgot to do the recruiting post on time (where did March go??)... anyway:

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have TWO volunteer reccers who signed up for April with these fandoms:

* Dragonriders of Pern ([personal profile] sigalit)
* due South ([personal profile] mific)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in April, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs.

Why this piece is awesome: It's not the characters themselves that captivated me here but the scenery. I love the way the light falls here, and how it looks so bright and happy.

Fandom: The Orville
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Bortus
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital art
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: curtisimpson on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: I love the clean lines and geometry in the stylized way the artist's painted Bortus. Brilliant use of hard-edged planes of colour to convey 3D solidity - and Bortus is certainly massive and solid. Also a perfect likeness. You can see the detail especially well in the close-up under the main artwork.

Artist Website/Gallery: artoutofnowhere on tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Alara's been a big hit with fans of the Orville. Her initial uncertainty, growth as a character, general pluck and badassery make her a fave, and there's quite a bit of art out there. This piece is a great example, with Alara in a flower crown looking cute and a little wistful or maybe self-deprecating.

Why this piece is awesome: I love how into each other they look. Love the tension between them. Love their expressions, especially how smug Pansy looks.
Love the contrast between the soft background and the stronger colours of Hermione and Pansy.

Link: Fine, Pansy. I'll go on a date with you..

Why this piece is awesome: It's a straightforward massive poster of the whole show - all the characters and all the space ships. This is to introduce The Orville TV show as I've been enjoying it and I'm reccing Orville art this week. It's a good reference as they're all named, and excellent likenesses. Some nice details are captured, like Malloy and LeMarr fist-bumping, Alara with the pickle jar, and Bortus with the karaoke mic. The pic's hi-res, so you can click through to see really close-up details.

Medium: digital drawing
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] cj-ludd18 / [tumblr.com profile] godsgrief

Why this piece is awesome: Starting my month of "The Hour" recs with a series of fabulous backstory drawings for Lix and Randall. The artist's style is simply amazing and in just three drawings, we get three key moments of their relationship back then, all of them incredibly atmospheric.
First one, 1935: Lix and Randall as young journalists, all professional and sharp, all in serious grey tones.
Second one, 1940: The two of them in bed together, Lix watching him sleep. The drawing only shows us their backs and a panorama of their room, all done in a wonderful range of warm red tones. Highlight: the orange sunlight falling on them through the blinds.
Third one, 1945: Lix alone in Europe, after the war. This looks like a series of old photographs/polaroids and I love that Lix is either a silhouette in front of ruins, or has half of her face in the shadows. The symbolism here is absolutely spot-on.
