odds & ends

- Bleach/Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It took me approximately the length of time needed to click through one comic to know that I was going to squee over this site and squee rather hard. Hitsugaya/Matsumoto is a rare-ish pairing (though, by no means nonexistant) and I don't see a lot of fanart for it, so to see a site with comics that are actually quite pretty? Squee. There's a surprising amount of detail in the comics and they can be a little rough in some places, but the artist also has a lovely way with the characters' eyes and even with her earliest work, there's a real discipline to the layouts and arrangements of each page of the comics. The artist's Hitsugaya is one of my favorites, the focus always seems to come back to his eyes, just like it does with KT's art itself. And, god, there are some gorgeous panels of him, especially in profile, with the stories--the "goodbye" comic is probably one of my favorites for that. Though, I think each successive comic gets prettier than the last and just... yes, this site totally did my HitsuMatsu shipper much good. ♥ Also, man, those color illustrations are beautiful. *__* Now, for as long as I've gone on about the Bleach side of the site, I don't want to give the impression that the FMA side wasn't as pretty, despite that I want to keep the rec semi-short. Because, fweeee, RoyEd comics that are just lovely, there are so many panels of either character that just make me want to swoon with the delicate lines of their hair or eyes. And, omg, the log fanart is just... yum. :9 There's something about the art that just hits my buttons in all the right ways. (Hitsugaya/Matsumoto, maybe a little Roy/Ed.)

- Fullmetal Alchemist - OSTRICH POLICY [ Chinese Fanart Site ] - I'm stealing the link for this site off Mei, despite that I just intended to breeze through, maybe collect a few images, and then keep wandering on, not really stopping for too long. But something about the art utterly enthralled me, the incredibly crisp lines, the gorgeously sharp black colors, the bright whites, the utterly fantastic shading on the images, the detailed backgrounds that could have come from a particularily good mangaka, the utter wibbliness of some of the poses... all of it got to me and left me in a pile of fangirl goo. There are a few comics on the page that I'm almost positive have to be from the artist's doujinshi, the level of prettiness to them, the strength of the art and layout... if she's not doing doujinshi, she should be. And, man, sleeping!Ed reaching for Roy's hand as he's slipping out of the bed, nestled amongst all the blankets, Roy's surprised look... it's almost physically painful how much I adored this site. ♥ (Roy/Ed.)

- Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hardly ever have my attention caught by FMA fanart sites anymore, I feel like I've seen most of the sites that I would really get all worked up over, but... well, I was seeking out Reborn! fanart this morning and happened to see the current top illustration of Roy and Ed, which caught my eye and... well. I started poking at the galleries. And this artist does that flat coloring with smooth, clean lines style that I like so much and maybe not everything is perfect, but when the artist gets it right, I love her work. There's some really, really awesome art on the site (Havoc shooting a gun, blood spraying back on him so awesome, even if it's creepy or the group illustration of them in an orchestra) and quite a lot of it, too. The artist draws a lovely Ed and asdlfjkasldkja I really sort of love her Roy/Ed art. (Roy/Ed, Havoc/Ed, a little other het and yaoi.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I tried very hard to resist this site, it doesn't have a lot of art and it's mostly oekaki-style illustrations that are here, but... the Roy/Ed was so adorable (or hilarious, the one of Ed practically strangling Roy or the figuring of Ed taking a bath was so ridiculously hilarious ♥) and then the Reborn! section had a cute Kyouko illustration, an adorable Lambo/I-Pin oekaki, and then had Dino/Hibari oekaki. a sdflkajslkjas, I'm weak, okay? There's not a lot of art here and it might not necessarily be for everyone, but I wound up kind of adoring the hell out of this site. It's just cute and fun and made me happy. ♥ (Some Roy/Ed, a smidge of Dino/Hibari, a lot of gen for both series.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was all set to dismiss this site, since it didn't have a lot of links in the gallery and a lot of that was oekaki/sketch stuff and that's always enough to win me over to a site. But, I was going through the gallery and I just quietly liked the artist's work. The further I got in, the more her art started to tighten up and get really good, there's a Halloween one on the second log page that I especially really liked. And just about everything on the title page is totally hot, and then finally there's a really well-done comic that I enjoyed a lot. Also it is hilarious. ♥ There's not a lot of art here, but I enjoyed the site a lot, my Dino/Hibari fix has been just about met for the day now. *beams* The FMA art starts out very similarly, it's a little shakey at first, but the further I got into the galleries, the more I could practically see the artist improving image by image until I was enjoying each piece on its own. It helps that the artist draws Roy/Ed, so I'm more inclined to be lenient, but I genuinely got a lot of satisfaction out of this site. (Dino/Hibari, Roy/Ed.)
