odds & ends

- Final Fantasy 7 - junk*garden [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, I saw this site and practically instantly fell in love with it, despite that it's not really my pairings. (Well, the hints of Cloud/Tifa were juuuuuuust fine~. ♥) It's one of those sites that draws an utterly gorgeous Sephiroth and an amazingly beautiful Zack and the colors practically shine and it makes me ache for SOLDIER-era fic because I love those characters and their relationships (and Cloud! ♥) so damned much. And it's also one of those sites that does a beautiful, beautiful Aerith in so many different poses and I think I may have hurt something squeeing over the Zack/Aerith or that super-hot one of Sephiroth and Zack lounging around or, OH MY GOD, CHIBI BUNNY-SUITED SEPHIROTH ROLLING AROUND ON A BALL AND FALLING OFF IT AND HOLY SHIT SO CUTE. I literally squee'd out loud at that. And then there's the Zack/Aerith comic that had me in flailing fangirl mode. There's just... so much to take in with this site, I think it's an absolute must-see, the art is just so damned gorgeous and, really, how can you not want to see everyone else ganging up on the beach to give a sleeping Sephiroth sand-boobs? ♥ (Some Zack/Aerith, some Sephiroth/Aerith, some Cloud/Aerith, hints of Cloud/Tifa and maybe Aerith/Tifa if you want to see them.)

- Final Fantasy VII - usagi no mimi [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I fell for this site pretty hard because I am also a sucker for Sephiroth/Zack fanart sites lately. I think part of it is that they're two of my favorite characters, but part of it is also because, dammit, Zack would have been so good for Sephiroth, who needed someone a little chaotic and human in his life. I think this site managed to feed into that a little and I'm just so deliriously in love with the way the artist can draw Sephiroth's hair, the way it just seems to shimmer in certain illustrations. There's one of him with an unbuttoned white shirt on and his hair is practically glowing and his eyes are just so incredibly green and that is exactly what I want when I go hunting for j-fanart, this site is what hits my buttons for this fandom. The art isn't perfect, there are some things that are a little off, but I just get so caught up in the characters' hair and eyes and the beautiful poses that I just don't care. It hits my buttons and that's worth far, far more to me. ♥ Plus, omg, there is a lot of art here, which made it a joy to go through the artist's gallery and the gift gallery, too. (Some Sephiroth/Zack, a little Zack/Aerith, Zack/Cloud, some gen, too.)

- Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy VIII - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a ton of fanart here, but I've mentioned the whole being insanely easy for Zack/Aerith art, right? Especially when it actually is really, really pretty--the one of them lying down together with the green-ish light shining down on them? Her arm draped across his chest, his arm around her shoulders? Oh, god, I am so weak to art like that, it just gets me where I live. ♥ The artist does start out a little shakey, but it's a style that's difficult to get right, because it looks like it could have been drawn entirely in pencil and colored the same way (even if it was probably still CG) and the artist shows a lot of progress with it. It's just... yeah, this site, for me, was all about the little details in the images or the pretty swoop of the characters' hair or my intense love of Zack. *__* (Maybe a little Zack/Aerith and Cloud/Tifa, but it's hard to say.)

- Final Fantasy VII - Mint-Electric [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, is this site pretty. *__* And totally hits my Zack/Aerith button, because the characters aren't just soft and pretty, they're often in totally wibbly poses as well. The one of Zack and Aerith sharing lunch on a low stone wall? Totally makes me wibble like you wouldn't believe. Zack and Sephiroth walking along in the sunset, with all these gorgeous colors, Zack laughing, Sephiroth's hand in his hair? Still more with the wibbling. The site is largely geared towards Aerith pairings or just Aerith by herself, which I don't seek out a lot, but sometimes a site just loves a character so much or gives me one of my favorite pairings that I can't resist falling for it. Everything is so warm and soft and the style really fits the characters and Aerith is so pretty (especially when she's holding a bloody Tseng or when she's in the field of yellow flowers) and there's just so much love all over the site... *sigh* I'm totally a pile over here. ♥ (Cloud/Aerith, Zack/Aerith, a little Other/Aerith, possibly worth poking around for the gen if you're not fussy about pairings or really love Zack.)

- Final Fantasy VII - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Whenever I find a new FFVII site I really, really love, my first instinct is to assume that I've already been to the site, whether I recognize the layout, style, or illustrations themselves. And this URL looks vaguely familiar. So I'm probably double recommending. Oh, well, is what I say because I got through about two links in the gallery before I hit some recent sketches and problem fell in love like whoa. Hot Sephiroth, hot Cloud, hot Lucrecia, pretty Tifa, more hot Sephiroth even when he's being insane and beautiful Zack/Aerith that made me about melt out of my chair at how pretty it was. Her smile, her wavy gorgeous hair, the flowers tucked into her hair, the pretty clothes, the blush on Zack's face... asldfkjasl;dfjasl;djf, worth the whole site right there. Not that the Sephiroth/Cloud wasn't appreciated anyway, because it totally was. There were some gorgeous images on the site, including one of them huddling together in the rain, one of the Cloud tackle-glomping Sephiroth, even ones of them in more modern-style clothing that should have been weird but was instead really pretty. And I'm fairly certain I've seen this site before because I squee'd over the Zack/Aerith, but without being able to check to make sure.... (Sephiroth/Cloud, a hint of Zack/Aerith, and a lot of gen.)

- Odin Sphere/Final Fantasy VII - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man. There might not be much art here, but what is here is beautiful, the kind of stuff that makes me melt into a puddle of blissful fangirl goo. The Zack/Aerith illustrations are some of the best I've ever seen in the fandom, the detail and strength of the lines is incredible. The colored art is very cute and adorable and I love it dearly, but the b&w sketches are just amazing. It's the same for the Odin Sphere art, some of the b&w lineart illustrations, like the one of Oswald/Gwendolyn, are just amazing to look at. The details of her dress and wings, the fantastic hair and flowers are just... oh, man, so pretty. ♥ Plus, the site has a Shinigami/Halja giving a loveletter to Oswald and I gotta say, I laughed a lot at that. That's great. This site is awesome and I love it ridiculous amounts. ♥ Also be sure to check out the oekaki page for a few extra super hot illustrations. (All the usual Odin Sphere pairings. Some Zack/Aerith, some gen for FFVII.)

- Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII - Renovatio [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I originally went through the FFXII gallery and I was kind of impressed, it's certainly some of the better FFXII fanart I've seen. (Which there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of...?) I liked the artist's style, it's got a lot of blended, almost sun-dappled-esque coloring. Or maybe watercolor-esque? But it wasn't until the FFVII gallery that I was really hooked on the site. *__* Of course it helped that the first illustration I clicked onto was this gorgeous Zack/Aerith piece, that put me in the right frame of mind, but it's also really fantastic art. There's a group illustration for the 2008 new year and, oh, man the detail and the light, pretty colors! I think the site is mostly focused on the CC-era of things, but that doesn't really hurt my feelings at all, especially not when they're as gorgeous as this. Plus plus plus! Beautifully drawn FFVII girls! Really pretty Cloud/Tifa! It's like this site loves me! ♥ (Zack/Aerith, Cloud/Tifa, some gen.)
