odds & ends

- Bleach/Naruto/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - To be honest, I sat on the fence over this site for awhile, there was just little art that really grabbed me, despite it being rather well done art. But there were just enough of illustrations like that one of Team Gai or Yondaime that have these warm, comfortable-feeling colors that I was sort of teetering towards this side and then... there are the occasional oekaki of illustrations like Yondaime with ANBU!Kakashi and the main illustration gallery held a lot more art. That's where the real stuff I fell in love with was--more of those same warm, golden-like colors and absolutely adorable stuff like Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Tsunade as kids or lovely Byakuya and Renji or just enough really quite cute Gintama fanart that I had to toss in there, too. Lots of different concepts/poses, lots of really pretty elegant characters or absolutely adorable fun characters, there's a good range here and that always wins points with me. Plus, I just love the colors, I don't know why. XD (Hmm, maybe a little Byakuya/Renji, but I'm not willing to label any other pairings.)

- Bleach/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - First, the Bleach. I don't always go for this pairing, but I have enough of a soft spot for it that I'll occasionally look into Byakuya/Renji fanart that catches my eye. It's sites like this one that keep me with an open mind because this way I get to see pretty Byakuya fanart or Renji as a skinny little stick of a kid being SO CUTE or surprisingly adorable fan-comics that I liked a lot. Also, be sure to check out the kiriban section, some of the best Bleach art is in there. *__* And then there's the Gintama fanart. Man, her Hijikata is hot. Like, hotter than a hot hot thing hot. Her Gin is really, really nice as well (especially that one of him in mid-fight, the lines of his body are perfect, the expression on his face is perfect), but Hijikata that keeps drawing my eye, because he looks fantastic, all that hair and irritated expression and beautiful uniform... wow, really impressive art here, enough to make even me go through the pairing that's not usually my thing. ^_~ (Byakuya/Renji, some Gin/Hijikata.)

- Bleach - rab-la [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I can't shake the feeling that I've seen and/or rec'd this site before, but I can't find it in my recs anywhere and it's... I mean, I'm not really a huge fan of the pairing, but, holy shit, does this site have some gorgeous art. Both Renji and Byakuya are stunningly gorgeous in the artist's hands, I loved her style right from the first one of Renji leaning back against Byakuya sitting in a chair, but the solo one of Byakuya is one of the prettiest things, like, ever. Also, Byakuya pushing Renji down to kiss him or up against a wall to kiss him really is kind of hot. XD The artist's colors are gorgeous, her lines are insanely good and some of the art is really pretty much professional level quality. I love that it's sort of somewhere in between anime and manga style, it has the manga's prettiness with the anime's sharp, cleaner colors and just... yeah, okay, I totally fawn over the hot Renji fanart. ♥ I've probably rec'd this site already, but, enh, like I care. XD (Some Byakuya/Renji, a little Ichigo/Renji, a little Other/Renji.)

- Bleach - RA-llby [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that I went to for the Renji art and wound up staying because it was really sort of hot and I really quite liked the author's Byakuya as well. Because she does amazingly well with the sharp black and white lines of Byakuya's character, especially his face and hair and the beautiful good looks that could almost be pretty if he weren't so incredibly strong. I adore her Renji as well, especially when he's all messy red hair and eyes and black tattoos across his face and arms--the artist really has a talent for getting at my hair kink with the Bleach characters. I think the site is definitely worth a whirl around with if you're a Renji fan or you like the Byakuya/Renji pairing, she's got some really neat art up, every so often one of them really impresses the hell out of me. (Byakuya/Renji, a little Other/Renji.)

- Bleach - imaginary metropolis [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites that's a little bit about the sum of the site rather than the parts of it, but also a little bit that some of them really made me squee over the individual images. Admittedly, the Byakuya/Rukia and Renji/Rukia fanart images that were just so... they fit the feeling of each pairing. The Byakuya/Rukia ones were elegant and a little bit melacholy or bittersweet, often using darker blacks and blues. The Renji/Rukia ones were usually tinged with just a little bit of desperation or Renji being cranky, the poses/expressions reflecting that. There was even a cute Ichigo/Orihime one! So the site had a lot of really solid art that gave me a fix for several pairings I was looking for. And... well, I'm explaining it badly. Just that I really got the feeling of the artist liking each of the pairings represented here for their own reasons, liking the characters themeslves (the Rukia ones are adorable, the Orihime ones are lovely, the Hollow!Ichigo one is kinda creepy, the Byakuya ones are elegant and/or stuffy, etc.) and to top it all off? There are sprites, omg. ♥ ♥ ♥ (Some Byakuya/Hisana, some Byakuya/Rukia, some Renji/Rukia, some Byakuya/Renji, some other pairings, both het and yaoi.)
