odds & ends

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - Hanakago [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So. I probably really shouldn't be looking for FE:PoR fanart, since I'm really only up to chapter 8 or 9 in the game (and am brimming over with fury for it--what do you mean dead means dead!?!? no fair!!!11) but. I was just wandering around a bunch of Tales of the Abyss sites and happened to stumble over art of characters I sort of recognize and this site was so pretty that I couldn't help myself. I only half-recognize most of the characters and a lot of them I couldn't even put names to, but! Such amazingly detailed, fully realized, gorgeously colored art! *__* This is the kind of site that got me into video game fanart sites in the first place. Each and every single piece is amazing to look at and just. asdl;fjkaslj so so pretty. And, holy crap, is the art of Soren on this site gorgeous, there's one of him with magic charts in the background that's just stunning omg. Oh and if you don't melt at wee little Ike and Mist, there's just something wrong with you. (Nothing I'd really warn for, except maybe a smidge of Ike/Soren.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - After the previous site, I was just itching for more art (because it's always intoxicating for me when I step into an entirely new fandom and there'll be a ton of new sites that I know I've never seen before) and so I stumbled over this site and it's really solid and cute. There's a decent amount of art to be found and... okay, I think it's chick!Soren and possibly this makes sense if you finish the game or possibly it's just Japan's odd thing for genderbending, but either way the art is cute and I liked the way the artist drew Ike and there are some really nice colors used here, the bright and sunny kind, and the artist has gotten really pretty good by the time you get to the most current art. I was pleased enough to rec it. (Ike/Soren, I think?)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site a lot because it's a solid site, but since I didn't share the artist's (seemingly?) favorite pairing, I didn't get as into it as I might have otherwise. But then I would keep going, just to see what else was on the site and I wound up being charmed by some of the Mist illustrations, which were super, super cute. So. Ultimately, I liked this site because I'm still really new to FE fanart and there's some really good Ike illustrations and some of them are REALLY strongly decent fanart! There's a solid selection of art and even some of various other characters as well, so it wasn't a bad site to visit, I don't think. (Some gen, some Volke/Ike?)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - Veleta [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I definitely wish there had been more fully done illustrations, but I didn't mind all that much in the end because there's a solid selection of art here and the artist has some really sharp, nice lines to go with her drawings. She also draws a good variety of characters while not feeling too much like a niche site, so it was cool to see Ike with various characters from the game, especially more and more as her art got better the further I got into the gallery. There's not a super ton here again, no, but it was solid and satisfying when part of a nicely long spree this morning. (Nothing I'm really going to warn for?)

- Higurashi no Naku Koro ni/Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So, apparently I'd been to this site for the Tales of the Abyss art before, but not the Higurashi art. Maybe I just wasn't into the series at the time? Who knows, but there's not a super ton of art here, but what there is is pretty interesting to look at. Half of the art is cute little doodles (usually with a lot of blood spray, characters crying, and etc!) and the other half are some really kickass Rena illustrations. The coloring is that soft sunet, jewel-tone stuff that I really like with this series. *__* Similarly, there's not a ton of FE:PoR art on the site, mostly a lot of little doodles and whatnot, but the art is cute and the lines are smooth enough that I was charmed by the site. The artist does really well at spreading the art across multiple characters, so it's got a good variety going for it as well! (No real warnings/pairings.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - fear [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I snatched the link for this from measuringlife's guide and it's a really, really nice little site! There are some really cute illustrations on the site, some light colors and heavy lines that are adorable, but then there are some really surprisingly intensely colored pieces or a gorgeous b&w piece of Soren and I wound up really impressed by the site! I skipped over a lot of the little mini-comics and doodles, but the main gallery was really worth visiting for, it's definitely some of the prettier Ike/Soren I've come across and I'd love to see more from the artist. It's not a perfect site, but there are some not to be missed images on it! *__* (Some Ike/Soren, some gen.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - - so - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Another link I snatched from measuringlife's guide and it took me probably longer than it should have to find the biggest gallery of art (which is tucked away in the past gallery) and I was kind of surprised at how quickly won over I was. The main gallery had some decently cute art, the ToA stuff was cute and I kinda liked the artist's style, but it wasn't until I got into the past gallery that I started looking at the really good stuff. The artist's lines are really surprisingly solid and I like her interesting uses of color, I like the watercolor effect it often has, and I really like how cute/pretty her Soren is. There's one of him in the rain that's just all soft lines and faded colors and it's really nice. So, not a ton of art here, but it was a really nice stop. <3 (Some Ike/Soren, some gen.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Another link I snatched from measuringlife's guide and it's another site that doesn't have a ton of art on it, but what's here is really interesting and often times really pretty. There's a lot of focus on the basic lineart, the color either secondary to it or just pure b&w (well, occasionally there are some pieces with some striking colors) and you can see how much time and attention the artist put into Soren's illustrations. There's a lot of linework here and it's detailed really well, making it a fun little site to go through. (A little Ike/Soren, a lot of gen.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - sudachips [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I snatched the link for this one off measuringlife's guide, but I've also been here before for the Tales of the Abyss art, so I may have eventually gotten back here on my own. *g* But I'm glad she pointed it out, because it's definitely one of the better sites I've seen, there's a really nice selection of different characters, a lot of the ones that I haven't seen covered as much (there's Marcia fanart!) and some of them are really, really gorgeous like the one of Lethe and Mordecai in the forest. Or a couple of really fantastic illustrations of Ranulf and Tibarn each. One of my new favorite sites for the game, I think. (....nothing I'd really warn for/no real pairing themes.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I clicked onto this site, if it was even going to be the game I knew, I was kind of clicking randomly a lot. But I got a really interesting little site--Haar/Jill isn't a pairing that would have occurred to me (but at this point I'm not finished with the game, nor do I pay attention to most of the more minor characters) but the fanart here is really lovely. There's also some really pretty Naesala/Leanne art, all that pretty hair and wings and flowing clothes that I'm weak to. Not everything is perfect, but there's a surprising amount of art here, there's some really gorgeous ones occasionally, there's a really nice selection of various characters, and all that made it really satisfying. (Some Haar/Jill, some Naesala/Leanne, some gen.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Normally, I'm fairly set in my pairings for FE:PoR, but... I can't resist a truly gorgeous site sometimes. The artist's favorite is probably Ranulf, he gets a lot of really lovely fanart, and there's a decent amount of Ranulf/Ike, but it's really the artist's Ike that made me fall in love with the site. The shades of blue she uses for his eyes and hair are so vibrant and look beautiful with the way her basic lineart is styled. There's not a ton of art here (aside from a lot of doodles that I admittedly skimmed), but it's worth a quick trip through, I think. (Some Ranulf/Ike, some other yaoi, some gen.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It really pretty much took me only two or three clicks into this gallery to kind of adore this site. The one of Naesala playing with Reyson and Leanne, done in this really bright, cel-shading style coloring and looking so cute as he laughs while Reyson gets all >:O and it's just. It was really sweet and totally pretty. Or! The one of Muarim hugging Tormod close! So cute! There's also a lot of art of Zelgius/the Black Knight, which are really pretty. Oh and! The little doodle of kidlet Naesala being tucked into bed! The style is actually really pretty and I'd have recommended the site for that alone, so many of them look almost professional, but it's also the nice selection of art. The comics are really gorgeous when the artist puts her mind to it (the one of Naesala and Reyson as kids is fantastic) and there's a lot of art and just. It's a really, really good site. *__* (Maybe some Naesala/Reyson, some Naesala/Leanne, a little Tormod/Sanaki, but there's more gen than anything, I'd say.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Another site with a lot of Ike and Ranulf, but I found myself not minding again because the art is really pretty and there's a decent amount of it. Actually, there's not that much focus on any given pairing, there's a lot of gen sketches, and it was fun to go through the galleries. Just. Watch out for surprise Oliver fanart sometimes. But the artist does have a nice style and it wasn't a bad site to stop by at all. (Some Ike/Ranulf, some other, some gen. There are some NSFW illustrations, so beware.)

- Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - Crowver [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Tibarn/Naesala isn't really a pairing that much occurred to me while I was playing the game, but you know me and an interesting art site--I'll look at just about anything. The art on this site is very solid and there's an occasional piece that's really lovely and I'm a sucker for odd pairings at least once or twice. Plus, there's some Shinon/Janaff illustrations (just a few, three or four at most, I'd say) and they were actually not bad at all! But my favorites were when the artist went for an anime-cel-style look with Naesala, which she did a really fantastic job with, the bright colors and almost slightly softened look was really nice with her style. This was an interesting site, especially if you have a fondness for tiny little kidlet!Naesala. XD Most of the art is really rough, the lines are a little all over the place, but the occasional image definitely made it worth my time, I felt. (Some Tibarn/Naesala, some other yaoi pairings, some gen.)
