odds & ends

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay. I was already kind of loving this site for the pretty art and the Kamina/Yoko (which I suspect will be somewhat of a rarity?), but then there was a series of illustrations with the Gurren Lagann characters dressed up as the Shin Seiki Evangelion characters and I was in love. I mean. Kamina as Rei. I was laughing kind of a lot. Though, not as much as I was at Viral as Asuka. Just. a sd;flkjasldkj yes. The rest of the site is very nice, it's scribbly styled with brushes of a watercolor style, which I like on this site. (Kamina/Yoko, maybe a little Simon/Nia, maybe a little other, some gen, too.)

- Gurren Lagann - peso [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was fond enough of this site for awhile, the art was cute and had a lot of potential. But then I hit the one of Simon and Nia holding hands and I was kind of sunk, because I'm pretty open to shipping whatever, but those two are so cute and came along at just the right time for me, I want someone that can make Simon be happy and she was so adorable right from the beginning. The art can be a little on the simple side at times, but it's very clean and the artist's lines are actually very solid and nicely done. Her sketches that have just a hint of soft, pastel color to them are really quite nice. (Kamina/Yoko, Simon/Nia, maybe a hint of Kamina/Simon that's really more gen than anything, a lot of gen.)

- Gurren Lagann - AND OVER [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, I really liked this site. It has some really nice group illustrations that have a solid CG style, it has some really cute sketches of nearly all the main characters, and just enough potential pairings or cute gen relationships that I had fun. There's just enough art that it was a satisfying stop on my fanart hunt today and I don't know how anyone could not wibble terribly over the one of younger Kamina and younger Simon with the fireflies. *wibbles* (Maybe some potential Kamina/Simon, some potential Simon/Nia, but this could be an entirely gen site.)

- Gurren Lagann - RRB [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I came through this site once before and, at the time, I wasn't in the mood to go through a bunch of diary pages to find the art, which I've since lightened up on, especially since they're really not that difficult to find and there aren't that many pages. But there's a solid amount of art and it's all really cute, brightly colored stuff. The level of detail is solid, the colors are very smooth and clean, and the art is sometimes utterly adorable and other times really kinda hot. Everything I ask for it in an artist. ♥ Also, also, also! How many times do you run across a j-fanart site that likes both het and yaoi? Not very often, as far as I can tell! Much less one who draws both really wonderfully, both Kamina/Simon and Simon/Nia look lovely with this artist, you can tell how good she is at drawing Simon's character, the kind of site that makes me fall even more in love with Simon's character, who grew to be my favorite, I think. Just. *happy sigh* Yes. (Kamina/Simon, some Simon/Nia, some other, two or three NSFW drawings if you click the banner links, and just enough gen to make it worthwhile if you don't mind using your scroll button.)

- Gurren Lagann - FEVER!! [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually looking for Tales of the Abyss art, I had a bunch of tabs open and I was going through the links pages and saw some intriguing Gurren Lagann banners I hadn't seen before and a few minutes later... right back to Gurren Lagann fanart. Not that I'm complaining because it led me here and I really like this site. There's not a ton of art here, but it's really solid stuff, very sharp and professional looking when the artist really tries. And, yeah, it helped that the artist's Nia is totally cute and her Kamina/Yoko illustration was really hot and even her oekaki was pretty rocking. I loved pretty much every piece on the site. ♥ (Some Kamina/Yoko, some Simon/Nia, some gen.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, yes! I've been waiting for a site with even just a little Simon/Viral art! Not that I ship the pairing particularly hard, but I sensed at least some chemistry there and wanted to see it played with in j-fanart, just a little bit. This site is more of a gen site overall, there's not that much focus on those two (instead there's some awesome group stuff and some seriously wibble-worthy Simon art), but even just a page or two of art is enough to make me happy. Especially since all the art on the site is very pretty! The artist draws everyone so adorably cute and occasionally totally hot. I love how just about everyone from the little main group, especially Yoko. There's one with her hair looking so very red and she has these adorable flame-shaped shoes on and just... ad;slfkjs yes. I ♥ this site. (A smidge of Simon/Nia, maybe a smidge of Kamina/Simon that's really gen, but it's mostly a purely gen site.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I admit, I skimmed a lot on this site, especially the earlier art, because it's often a little too cutesy for my personal tastle. It's not terrible, just not my thing. But every once in awhile, there would be a super-cute illustration that hit me just the right way, especially because Simon/Nia is so cute on this site. It's almost chibi-esque at times, but the artist uses these cute pastel colors and it makes them look even younger than they are, but... yeah, so cute that I can't help liking a bunch of them. Plus. Cat ears. On Nia! So cute! <3 (Simon/Nia, a little other, a lot of gen.)

- Gurren Lagann/Fullmetal Alchemist/Gintama/Howl's Moving Castle - AuroraVision [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man, I loved this site right away, the art is totally hot and fantastic looking. Not only does each piece look terrific, with all these strong, smooth lines and really good colors, but the artist draws so many different things. You've got adorable Simon/Nia under the bright blue sky, you've got older Simon and Rossiu looking out over the city, you've got little princess Nia surrounded by toys and looking a little lost, you've got Simon and Viral with their hands around each other's throats, etc. So many of them are so vivid with this artist, the colors she starts using are just gorgeous. ♥ As for the rest of the art, there's not much of a gallery proper, but there's a lot of sketches and diary art tucked away on the site that are absolutely worth going through, the FMA images are lovely (and some of them are so hot and remind me of why I spent so much time with FMA sites in the past) and I think this may be the first Gintama site I've seen in awhile where I'm actually charmed by the art again! *__* (Some Simon/Nia, some Gurren Lagan gen. Mostly gen for FMA and Gintama, I'm going to say. Maybe a little Hijikata/Okita. Howl/Sophie for HMC.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site... I might not have spent much time here or just passed it on by, but it has a certain style, very much like a watercolor painting, and somehow this really fits well with the Simon/Nia pairing. Especially since the artist seems to really adore Nia and draws her so cute and then has these lovely illustrations of her floating down into Simon's arms or the two of them floating along or flying way up in the air with Lagann while flowers rain down around them. It's one of those styles that I wouldn't want to see all of the time, but when just the one site comes along... it's really cute and very sweet, totally hits that craving for Simon/Nia adorableness that I've been having. (Simon/Nia.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Sites ] - This is one of those sites that's going to be hell for me to describe properly. It's not that it doesn't deserve a proper rec, because it does. The art is all very good and very nice to look at and the artist even covers a variety of poses and characters. It's everything a site should be. But there aren't really any themes, it's largely a gen site (with some Simon/Nia) and so not much stands out for me to comment on. It's a really nifty little site, it's very solid and I enjoyed it a lot. It's just a little hard to describe. Totally worth visiting, though. (Mostly gen, maybe a little Simon/Nia.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that took me awhile to really warm up to, one that I almost gave it a pass, not because it was bad or anything, just that it hadn't really hit me yet. But somewhere along the way it still managed to win me over. Whether through having a surprising amount of art on the site, having a lot of it be focused on how adorable Simon is (who is my favorite character, I think), or because there are a handful of really cute Simon/Nia illustrations (a couple of the images in the gallery proper are just lovely, with the warm watercolor style the artist uses on them), I'm not sure. But it's a solid, cute site that's worth your time if you like looking through a lot of j-fanart. (Some gen, some Simon/Nia.)

- Gurren Lagann - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I really hadn't planned on browsing through any Gurren Lagann sites this morning, I was wandering around some Code Geass sites and stumbled over the link to this one, though, and was really charmed by the Simon/Nia art here. While I wish there'd been more color art because the artist did a great job with the soft pinks and blues of this pairing, it's hard to complain when she nails the canon style so very well. And omg every time they kissed, even just Simon's lips against her forehead or near her face, I was just so very as;dflkajslkj over it, because this is why I liked them so much. The artist is fantastic, her lines are really smooth, clean, and professional, some of them are nearly on the level of canon and she just. Captures the dynamic between them so well. ♥ (Simon/Nia, occasional slightly NSFW content.)

- Gurren Lagann - KISIRO [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was here earlier this morning for the Tales of Vesperia art, having written my rec before I noticed Gurren Lagann fanart and as;dlfkjaslkjslkjs I could not resist. I wanted to, because there wasn't as much here to find, but... it's such damn good art sometimes that I couldn't resist. There's a real polished quality to a lot of it, the colors and the lines and everything looks very professional. Plus it's Simon/Nia art! And some of it is so fucking cute! And some of it's just gorgeous and I'm going to keyboard mash for a long time over that wedding one. *__* My only complaint is that there wasn't more art here. *__* (Simon/Nia.)
