odds & ends

- Gakuen Heaven - sacrifice [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Admittedly, I'm recommending this site for one particular section and because I'm rather desperate for art from the Niwa/Kaoru-chan pairing. But I was actually slowly beginning to appreciate the art for it's own sake--it's very rough, very sketchy, very raw, surprisingly intense. It fits Nakajima pretty well and looks surprisingly good on Niwa... which is a pairing that's growing on me, Niwa/Nakajima. It was kinda hot here, especially since the artist draws her oekaki-style art all pr0ny. (I'm really curious as to what her regular art would look like with these characters.) I was a little "...." over the Nakajima/Shinomiya, but I didn't mind, either. And then. Then there was Niwa/Kaoru-chan and it was actual pairing art and it was pr0ny and I was all, "OKAY. YOU GET A THUMBS UP NOW." So, the site appealed to me mostly for that, I suspect you have to be a fan of the pairing to really enjoy it like I did, probably even had to spend quite a lot of time looking for art to appreciate what there is, but... yeah. It's King/Queen. I am deteremined to find it all. I liked this site. Good enough. ♥ As for the Togainu no Chi fanart, it's a bit sparse and it has the same rough style as the Gakuen Heaven art, but I liked it well enough to toss it in. It's better if you're looking at a bunch of sites all together, it's better as one amongst many, but the artist shows a lot of promise/talent with certain images of hers, so... well, yes. Good enough for me again. :D And, actually, her Kiriwar is really quite hot. *_* (Niwa/Nakajima, Nakajima/Shinomiya, Niwa/Kaoru, some other.)

- Gakuen Heaven/Togainu no Chi/Prince of Tennis - + robot heaven + [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist starts out a little rough. But I was willing to keep going because of a potential promise for Niwa/Kaoru-chan fanart eventually and the Niwa/Nakajima fanart was really kinda interesting in the meantime. The artist was shakey at first, but you can see her slowly tightening up the characters until they both start to look really kinda hot. She's especially good at drawing Nakajima in this way that totally hits his stereotype and why I love it--tall, hot, glasses, broad shoulders, looks good in and out of a suit. Yum. And then she draws Niwa with his shirt off a lot and tattoos on his arms or a necklace around his neck and, again, omg, hot. There's almost a raw sort of quality to the art that gets better and better as she goes along. *__* Even her Kazuki/Keita is really kinda hot in this style--while it's certainly better suited to characters like Niwa and Nakajima, I found I actually liked her KazuKei as some of the best art I've seen for that pairing. The Togainu no Chi fanart is pretty much the same way, it starts out rather rough, but gets better as the artist goes along, so that a few of the later images look really good/hot, especially with the way the artist sticks to b&w a lot, which she's really good at. As for the Tenipuri art... admittedly, it's a bit difficult to find and there's only about ten illustrations on the site, but... there were two or three of them that I found I really liked and thus wanted to list it. It might not be worth visiting for just that, but it rounds out the site nicely, especially when the artist does a really hot Atobe, a nice Oshitari/Gakuto, one of the prettiest Fujis I've seen in awhile, and some rather hot Tezuka/Fuji. ♥ (Niwa/Nakajima, Kazuki/Keita, some other. Several pairings with TnC, but no real themes. Tezuka/Fuji and mostly gen for Tenipuri.)
