odds & ends

- Final Fantasy 7 - K.Haruka Company [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I... don't know what posessed me to seek out Final Fantasy 7 stuff this morning, I probably just saw a random link, happened to click on it and then stumbled over this site, but... I'm kinda glad I did, because I have a real fondness for Cid/Vincent and this site just sort of fed right into that. There's a lot of art here and it's all... that cute doujinshi style that's so much fun to collect off of Yahoo!Japan. (Which would because I think they ARE doujinshi covers?) The artist does a really nice Vincent--there are certain illustrations on the site that are wonderfully detailed and the covers of her books, from 1997-2003 are often times really pretty, really kinda creepy, or just OMG LOOKIT THE CUTE CHIBI CID AND VINCENT AHAHAHA SO CUTE I WANT ONE! And, really, what more can I ask of a site than that? Good, solid art that's befitting a doujinshika, cute chibis, pretty angsty bishounen, and a lot of art? XD XD XD (Cid/Vincent.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - GAKUTA [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I've been poking around at a lot of FF7 stuff ever since I watched AC and one of the things I stumbled over was this gorgeous site. There are a lot of really cute illustrations or a lot of really beautiful illustrations or a lot of images that made me laugh out loud (the Kingdom Hearts Sephiroth parody just utterly cracked me up XD) or a lot of images that made me squee (the KH!Cloud illustrations are gorgeous and there's this utterly stunning one of Cloud and Sephiroth crouched back to back or beautiful art of Zack and Cloud from the Last Order OAV or the great Christmas fanart), as well as there being quite a lot tucked into a bunch of different corners of the site. There are so many specific illustrations on this site that I wish I could directly link to, but honestly the whole site is worth going through. And, oh my god, I totally hit that "Set as wallpaper" button for this artist's wallpaper of all the major FF7 characters because it's JUST THAT PRETTY. ♥ (No real warnings/pairings, I wouldn't say.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - Diabolism [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I pretty much knew I was going to be falling fast and hard for this site when I got to the illustration of chibi Sephiroth with the witch's hat on his head for Halloween, it was just SO FREAKING CUTE and he had beautiful green eyes and the most adorable expression and I totally squeed. And then there was the illustration of Sephiroth, Zack, and Cloud where Cloud was poking into the underbrush on their mission with the cutest :D expression just about ever. And then there was AC!Reno jumping onto AC!Cloud's back who is so VERY NOT HAPPY about it and Rude yanking Reno by the ponytail and I cackled like a mad woman. And then there was pissy!embarrassed!AC!Cloud stomping off while one-winged!AC!Sephiroth and the Sephiroth-clones trail happily behind him. While I'm not wild about all of the art on the site, there were enough that sent me into fangirl fits of glee that I just had to rec. (Hints of most major Sephiroth pairings and a little Tseng/Rufus possibly.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - 7th Gate [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Good lord, this site sent me into orbit without in love I was with the art. Both Sephiroth and Cloud are gorgeous on their own, she has this lovely way with their hair or the softer looking lines or these gorgeous details to their clothes, but it's when she draws Sephiroth x Cloud that I go into overdrive. She has this quality to the way she draws Cloud lounging across Sephiroth's hip or leaning up to kiss him or the gorgeous, amazingly hot posessive look on Sephiroth's face as he pulls Cloud back towards him or, man, man, half-naked!Cloud in Sephiroth's lap in their AC designs and I think I just about purred with happiness over that. Or Sephiroth picking KH!Cloud up and tossing him over his shoulder or--*is shot* But it also helps that the colors are these lovely brighter shades that actually work with the FF7 characters, that actually work really well with the artist's basic line art. There are then some adorable comics of all the characters, including the FF7 girls, there's this amazingly beautiful SxC kiss as Cloud holds Sephiroth down onto him or pantless!Cloud on Sephiroth's lap again or one-winged!Sephiroth or a million other illustrations that I want to squee gleefully about. Now, Vincent is actually a strong presence on the site, but I have to admit, it was the SxC stuff that really caught my attention. ♥ ♥ ♥ (Sephiroth/Cloud, with some Sephiroth/Vincent, Vicent/Cloud, Sephiroth/Vincent/Cloud.)

- Final Fantasy 7/Fullmetal Alchemist - Escape Club [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I came to this site for the FF7 fanart, but wound up staying for the FMA fanart because, holy hell, this artist's Ed is just gorgeous. There's this way she has with the character, a certain strength to the lines of the character so that it looks like a really strong, professional doujinshi, she's great with her inking (?), her shading, the way she lays an image out, the proportions, the gorgeous eyes and hair and expressions and, oh, man, do I love, LOVE her Al. Both the brothers are slightly older and look slightly thinner, but it's so obviously them and I'm currently clicking my way through her long 30+ page comic and it's seriously one of the prettiest things I've seen just about ever. I can't stop staring at Ed's hair or the way he looks with his shirt off, because it's all just so pretty. I barely even blinked at the Elricest because... how can I complain when the artist draws them holding hands and looking forward that's just completely wibble-worthy? ♥ The FF7 art is obviously a little older and thus not quite as strong, but it's still quite worth going through the galleries for, if just to see the occasional hot Zack fanart or the pretty Aerith illustration or Cloud in a Santa outfit. XD And the FF8 stuff is worth a look, too, the Seifer/Squall comic shows a lot of growth on the artist's part, I think. Overall, I had a lot of fun here. ♥ (Ed/Al, Zack/Cloud, maybe a little Cloud/Aerith, and Seifer/Squall.)

- Final Fantasy 7/One Piece - Honura [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - *vibrates with happiness* I had so much fun with this site, really. There were a lot of cute illustrations, but I have to admit that it wasn't until I got to the soft, b&w one of Sephiroth and Cloud in the snow where Cloud's got a lock of Sephiroth's hair in his hand as he trails behind, it's so wibble-inducing cute! And then, not long after that, the site hit me with this gorgeous illustration of Aerith and Tifa in formal dresses (with little chibi Cloud and Sephiroth in their hands!) that made me sparkle like crazy. The artist does a really good variety of stuff, sometimes you'll find Sephiroth/Zack/Cloud, sometimes you'll find the FF7 women (Aerith, Tifa, and Yuffie in leather? Nice. :9) or sometimes there'll be these amazingly cute kiddie!Cloud with Sephiroth illustrations that just warm my heart. And, god, posessive!Sephiroth holding Cloud close while a chocobo stomps on a prone Zack? Priceless. And there's even Kingdom Hearts art!, any time Sephiroth bodily picks up Cloud to rush off with him (ostensibly to get him out of danger), I squeed. So much fun to be found here. ♥ And I wasn't originally going to include this in the One Piece section, since it's really more of an FF7 site, but the group illustration that was just somehow so One Piece, I caved. There's only a handful of illustrations, but the site just nails what makes me love the One Piece art, the soft edges that can occasionally be found in the art that makes it so pretty in its own way. And, god, the one of them as kids interspersed with them as adults? Brilliant. Totally worth the site alone. (Hints of a lot of the popular pairings, Sephiroth/Cloud, maybe a little Vincent/Cloud or Zack/Cloud; no One Piece pairings.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - Horizon Blue [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Again, it was the SephirothxCloud fanart that really won me over with a site, because it manages to hit that button that I have with them, especially the one of Cloud leaning back onto Sephiroth and looking up at him with this expression that's just so wibbly. Or Cloud and Sephiroth in front of a big, huge picturesque window and it just looks so, so beautiful. Or the dark blue shades used in the one of Sephiroth kissing Cloud's forehead (?) in a darkened room (probably at ShinRa?) or, god, the garden one that just made me squee so hard. The artist really knows how to make her style work for her, the almost painting-like textures with the backgrounds or, hell, that one really awesome one of Yuffie jumping away from a explosion or the adorable ones of Aerith and determined!dirty!kiddie!Cloud also owned me so hard. Or! Or! Officer!Cloud on watch while Zack flops on the ground next to him and smokes in the laziest position possible! XDDDD Or Zack giving Sephiroth a chocobo keychain that reminds him of Cloud, which is the greatest thing ever. Yeah, I ♥ this site. (Some Sephiroth/Cloud, but worth going for the gen, too.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - mania_outlet pointed out this site to me and, admittedly, Sephiroth/Vincent isn't my pairing, but I'm a giantic Sephiroth nerd already and I have much love for Vincent, so I figured what the hell. And I'm really glad I did because, damn, can the artist draw a beautiful looking Sephiroth sometimes. There's a lot of detail to her work and sometimes Sephiroth can look a little over-muscled, he is a huge guy, so it makes sense and, god, kid!Sephiroth just owns me, he's so cute. When the artist puts him and Vincent in traditional or period piece clothing? It's just so cool. Or, say, she does a fantastic job with the Kingdom Hearts version of Sephiroth, his outfit looks so great. And her Vincent is really rather stunning, she gets the spill of his hair just right, the way his clothes lay over his body, and even when she puts him in modern clothes, he just looks so great, she has this ability to give him just a hint of gothicness that really pulls the whole thing off. Or! Her AC-based art! Or Vincent when he was a Turk! *squee* Plus, god, there's a ton of art here. Definitely worth the visit. ♥ (Maybe a little Sephiroth/Vincent, but it could really be gen, too.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - PAROTHDAME [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I think what won me over with this site is that there's a lot of fanart and it's all really cute and the artist does well with the clones. Plus, how can you pass up a site with chibi kitty Yazoo and Kadaj? There's some good trio stuff, some pretty Yazoo stuff, you can really see the green of their eyes, which is something I really like. Also! There are a handful of neat Reno fanarts and I'm utterly in love with the oekaki stuff, because you can start to really see how strong her art gets. Plus, more kitties! XD (No real warnings/pairings, I wouldn't say.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - S+pade [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Annnd another site that won me over because it gave me art of some of my favorite aspects of the series. There's Sephiroth looking utterly kick-ass when in the middle of a fight (or RIDING A CHOCOBO, how can you not want to see SEPHIROTH riding a CHOCOBO? ♥) or just utterly hot, there's the Cid x Vincent couple of fanarts that have that rough edge to them that work so well for the pairing, there's a lot of neat fanart of the Sephiroth clones trio (and, seriously, the Yazoo/Kadaj one where Loz is outside the window with this classic expression is just great) and, hell, there's even Reno/Yazoo fanart that's kinda pretty! And Sephiroth/Yazoo! ....that's totally like masturbation, isn't it? XDDDD And Kadaj dressed up like AC!Cloud! Overall, this site was just kinda cool and one that made me cackle in glee, so I think it was worth it, definitely. :D (Lots of Sephiroth-clone yaoi, some other random yaoi implied.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - Onsoku-Onomatope [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - *squees* Two things--one, there is a lot of fanart on this site, of all the characters and major pairings, so I got a nice, satisfying feel from it. Two, it has some of the best illustrations of Cloud as a chocobo and putting him into amusing situations (it's not a theme so much as it's remarked on a few times) and I cackled with glee every damn time. But it's also that there are some utterly lovely illustrations, some absolutely adorable chibi Sephiroth illustrations or... well, there's Sephirtoh helping Cloud to style his hair, there's Rufus and the Turks playing the boardgame Life that just wins all, there's soft, sweet Aerith illustrations, there's kick-ass incredibly detailed Vincent illustrations, there's Sephritoh and Cloud chibis, there's Sephritoh all feathered up from the end, there's a handful of neat Zack illustrations, and so on. You sort of start to see what I mean about it being one of those varied, fun sites that I enjoyed so much. ♥ (Maybe a little Sephiroth/Cloud, but more gen than anything.)

- Final Fantasy 7 - Honey Bee Manor [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I kept seeing art for this site all over the place and finally stopped by to check the art out and, man, this site took me forever to get through because there was so much of it here! The great thing about the site, though, is that it's one of those classic sites, the kind that seems to have been around forever, the art is all solid and good and actually really cool and creative, the artist is incredibly consistent and there are a bunch of illustrations that I would love to point out as examples of how spiffy it is. The other thing is that it's a good all-around site, I don't even know if I could tell you the artist's favorite character (maybe Vincent?) because so many characters get their illustrations on the site. And. Oh. God. How much do I love her Zack? SO MUCH. Really fantastic site. (No real warnings/pairings.)

- 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 7 - cherryBB [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, my god, this site was awesome! For a couple of reasons--one, the art was really just terrific and, two, it has Reeve fanart. Not just a little, but an actual Reeve-centric site with really beautiful fanart! *twirls* And, god, some of those Tseng/Reeve illustrations were just gorgeous, the hair, the eyes, their faces, the colors, the poses, the little Cait Sith chibis all over the place...! I think one of my favorites had to be of Tseng protecting Reeve in the middle of a snowstorm and it was just... somehow, the almost sketch-like quality of it made it even more lovely. But then there were also the more polished, sharp ones, where Tseng and Reeve looked just almost professional! And honestly? Reeve should not be that hot sitting in a chair with a Cait Sith toy on his lap, but, man, he is. This is one of those sites that I can't really describe well enough, despite that it has everything you want in a site--sometimes funny, sometimes just jaw-droppingly gorgeous, sometimes a mix of the two. An absolute must if you have any fondness for Reeve or Tseng. (Mostly Tseng/Reeve, maybe hints of other pairings.)

- Final Fantasy 7/Naruto/Inuyasha - 22 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Despite that there's not a ton of fanart here, I had to recommend it, because what is here is just so very lovely--the one of Yondaime with a white nine-tailed spirit fox hovering over his shoulder? Just beautiful. Or there's ANBU!Yondaime, which is a weakness of mine when done as beautifully as this site does it, the lines and colors are just... pretty! There are only about four FFVII illustrations or so, but the Tifa one (and the Aerith one of her in the Lifestream) was just so beautiful that I had to rec it for that alone. It's that kind of CG that takes a lot of skill to do well, the kind that looks very professional, especially to make it recognizable as the characters. And then there was the utterly stunning illustration of Kikyou that sent me over the edge with this site--there are actually a lot more in the oekaki section, but I'm most fond of the main gallery art. *__* (Maybe a few hints of pairings, but no real themes.)
