Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Opal
Content Notes/Warnings: none

10.19.17 - Aquaman by Razzah (almost SFW)
Fandom: Aquaman/DCU
Characters: Aquaman
Content Notes/Warnings: bare pecs and a delicious happy trail, so use your judgement about where to open it!
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Razzah on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Almost all the Aquaman art I'll be reccing is from after the current Momoa incarnation came out, but some, like this, date from the casting announcement before we got to see what costume DC were planning. I like the various fusions of old Aquaman details with the artists' imaginations that result, and this is a good example. It's also as hot as hell - wait for the pic to load then click through for the close up - it's worth it! (Those eyes, the pecs, the hairy belly, ulp).

10.18.17 - Bandom: Deer Eyes by Tcustodisart (SFW)
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance and Electric Century)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Mikey Way

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Digital art

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] tcustodisart

Why this piece is awesome: Because [tumblr.com profile] tcustodisart is THE artist to check out if you're a fan of Mikeyway. Their site is filled to the brims with Mikeyway throughout the MCR eras and beyond.

Deer Eyes is a good example of how well this artist can depict Mikeyway's occasionally haunting yet always sharp gaze. Surrounded by darker hues, your eyes can't help but focus on this Mikeyway: a little awkward and a little friendly. If anything, the doodle style enhances the overall vibe.

10.16.17 - Bandom: Untitled Frank Iero by Alexzajfert (SFW)
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance, LeATHERMOUTH, Death Spells, FIATC, FIATP)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Black and red ink

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] alexzajfert

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

10.15.17 - Untitled Team Machine by Touchedbymisha/Worrynet (SFW)
Fandom: Person of Interest
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Reese, Finch, Carter, Root, Shaw, Fusco, Bear, The Machine
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional pen sketch
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] worrynet / [tumblr.com profile] touchedbymisha
Why this piece is awesome: The artist did review/reaction sketches for many episodes of the show (to find at their Deviantart POI gallery), which were always lots of fun and distinctive in style. I'm linking to this Team Machine picture - done in reaction to the show's PCA win - because it has all of the characters of Team Machine at once, which is pretty rare, and it shows well what's so fun about these little sketches.

10.13.17 - Bandom: Untitled Frank/Gerard by Lissdeer (SFW)
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero/Gerard Way

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Color pens/markers

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] lissdeer

Why this piece is awesome: Because it's a sweet/tender moment of kissage between Frank and Gerard that could be set in any AU. I love the nod to Gerard's often quirky shirts as well as Frank's tendency for wearing pants that have ripped knees. #LOL

Also, the palette (lots of reds, black, and greys) falls within the Revenge era aesthetic. And yet, between the gentle lines and the adorability factor of the kiss, what's creepy ends up being quite charming.

10.12.17 - Ruby & Sapphire animation by Jordan Battle (SFW)

Medium: animation
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a

Why this piece is awesome: By our powers combined! This is a delightful animation of the inner workings of Garnet. They are both adorable and powerful. ♥

10.10.17 - Bandom: Untitled Ray Toro by Blackiewart (SFW)
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Ray Toro

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Watercolor

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] blackiewart

Why this piece is awesome: Because, like the artist said, Ray Toro deffo deserves more fanart, LOL!

One of the things I like about this piece is how kinetic it feels. This is Ray at his happiest: mid-playing his guitar onstage. Another thing I think is cool is how the artist depicted a stage light right behind Ray. Perhaps the artist wanted us to enjoy Ray's curls. Finally, although the majority of the palette come from a darker hue, there is a palpable vibrancy to both the subject (Ray) and the overall mood.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Finch, Shaw, Bear
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital drawing/comic
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] pencornielius (no art tag unfortunately)
Why this piece is awesome: A small hurt/comfort scene between Finch and Shaw (and Bear) that looks a little bit like it's from an old b/w silent film.

10.07.17 - Waiting by Milsae (SFW)
Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Onion
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] milsae's art tag

Why this piece is awesome: A very tiny Onion looks out over a vast seascape as he waits on the pier for his dad. I love the coloring and linework in this. It feels like a children's storybook illustration with a touch of Hokusai.
