odds & ends

- Cowboy Bebop - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I don't go searching for Cowboy Bebop stuff much simply because I'm not well-acquainted with the series enough to really get the impact of a lot of the art, you know? (I keep meaning to watch it... but given that I've been saying that for about three years now.... >_>) But I knew I had to rec this site from the moment I saw the current top illustration of a sleeping Spike because it was just... the lines were so gorgeous and despite knowing little about the series, it really FELT right to me, the style and tone of the illustration. And that's what this gallery felt like to me, too--despite the art being rather simplistic or sketchy many times, it still somehow fit the beautiful art style of the series. Don't ask me how, I just know I like the art. XD (No warnings/pairings.)

- Cowboy Bebop - PACE [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I really wish this artist had done more Cowboy Bebop fanart because her work is very solid, especially the cel-like coloring. The artist does especially well with Spike, which you can tell going through the gallery, because his illustrations seem to be the most flushed-out, with the best proportions and the most background details--the one of him in the city at night is VERY COOL. But there's also a beautiful one of Faye that I'm quite taken with; the lines of her face and body just make her look as lovely as she should. I also like the rough sketches--the first two on the second set of rough sketches are particularily apt for the series and, again, make me wish the artist had done more. <3 (No warnings/pairings.)

- Juuni Kokki/Cowboy Bebop/Vagrant Story/Lord of the Rings - TEHANU [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I came to this site for the Vagrant Story fanart, but wound up staying because there's a lot of really amazing stuff here. The Cowboy Bebop lines/colors are clean and smooth and genuinely pretty, probably some of the best I've seen for the series. Her Spike is gorgeous, there's a beautiful one of Ed that I love the eyes of, and there's a wonderful one of Spike and Faye in space suits. And I mentioned her Spike is gorgeous, yes? Okay. Oh, and the one of Faye laying back with her shirt half open? WOW. Beautiful. And, okay, there are only three Vagrant Story images here, but I had to include the site in this section because her Sydney is utterly gorgeous and these three illustrations are some of the best I've seen for the fandom. The one of Sydney, Joshua, and Hardin is just... whoa. Beautifully colord and drawn. The 12K stuff is more of the same--beautiful, almost delicate lines, gorgeously warm colors that fit the series and, wow, her Youko is beautiful and her Taiki adorable and I love the oekaki. And, finally, the Lord of the Rings stuff is also just amazing--she did an illustration of each major character and they look just terrific. ....I gush. A lot. >__> (No real warnings/pairings.)

- Cowboy Bebop - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, I had to rec this site because the Spike chibis were just SO DAMNED CUTE. It might seem a little random, but... damn, if the puppy ears on Spike or the random chibi illustration of him about to dive into his food isn't just so utterly adorable and surprisingly well-drawn that I was won over by the site. It helps that the artist is actually pretty good at the style she's chosen--her lines are smooth and consistent, the colors are good, and chibi!Spike with puppy ears drinking out of a coffee mug with paw prints on it that's literally half the size he is, is OMG SO FREAKING CUTE I WANT TO JUST *HUG* IT. ♥ Oh, and chibi!Vicious in the kiriban gallery playing video games is hysterical, too. And chibi!dancing!Spike and Faye! XD XD XD (No warnings/pairings.)

- Cowboy Bebop - Spilt Milk [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I admit, this site probably hits me more because I've been looking for Spike/Faye fanart, but I really like what the artist does with so many of the images. There's almost a delicateness to some of them and a really good use of softer colors with the others and I love that the artist frequently draws them in different types of clothing instead of just sticking to their regular outfits. I doubt the site would convert anyone who wasn't already a fan of the pairing, but for someone who is... yeah, it definitely fed the whole OTP thing. XD (Spike/Faye.)
