- Full Metal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is yet another site that I wasn't sure I was going to rec at first, but after I started poking around, after I got a feel for the site, I fell so absolutely in love with it. The comics are fabulous, especially because there are so many of them, but because they're exactly the kind of thing I wanted to see. Roy and Edward being cute and pretty and just a teensy bit grabby; there are several illustrations of Roy wrapping his arms around Edward that are breathtaking for their loveliness and intensity despite being sketches. The lines of the art are wonderful, there's a very sketch-like quality to the art, but sometimes those turn out to be my favorites, because color doesn't get in the way and distract you from the lines or the focus on little details (like Edward's hands grasping at Roy's coat or the expressions on their faces). The artist has a very light touch, but she uses that to her advtange along with putting the characters into a multitude of different poses/situations and I could not click through the galleries fast enough in my haste to see more, more, more. Even more than the beautiful quality to the art, even more than the sparkly Roy/Ed wonderfulness, I loved the satisfied feeling I had after getting through this site. So rarely do I get that sated feeling from a site by the time I'm done. I shall treasure this site. (Roy/Ed and some Havoc/Hawkeye.)

- Full Metal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, see? I have this thing for Havoc and Hawkeye. I know it's not really all that played around with in the canon of the series, but I was pinging off the idea even before I saw any of the J-fanart for it out there and when I did... well, I was just lost then. And I wish this site had more art, but... hell, there's this one of Havoc and Hawkeye dressed in black formal wear that's just so... quitely, simply lovely that I couldn't help falling in love. Plus, I ♥ the artist's oekaki board, which is just... okay, I admit, I'm amused by Havoc in seifuku-wear and the random puppy and kitty versions of the characters and there are often hugging/groping illustrations and... well, the art might not be up to everyone's par, but I loved the site for the FEELING it gave off of the characters. And hooray for Hawkeye not being blushy and froofy all of the time and the nice simplicity of the art. I also really kind of like the watercolor-like colors. ^___^ (Havoc/Hawkey, some Roy/Hawkeye.)
