- GundamW Fanart - Whoo, very pretty art! The colors are soft and the drawings clean and look very much like the original characters. Just... lovely. (Yaoi, non-yaoi, and gen.)


- Gundam Wing - The Second Cage [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I wasn't originally going to rec this site, because I wasn't crazy about all of the art, but I liked enough of it that I kept clicking... and the further I got into the gallery, the harder I fell in love with the art. Oddly enough, while the artist seems more fond of 1x2, I was initially drawn to her 3x2 fanart more, which was just... nice. There's one of Trowa reading on the couch with Duo look like he's about to climb into his lap that I just loved. There are also several single-character illustrations where the artist is really on the ball and her art strengthens up to be not quite sketchy, but just a hint of delicate-ness to the characters that I really liked. But the real highlight was the rough sketches--the artist style works so very, very well when she's doing sketchy work--there's one of Heero just about to kiss Duo that takes my breath away. *__* Then there was the gorgeous one of Duo glomping Trowa and the fantasty sketches (I loved the one of Heero... can I have him? Please?) and the group illustrations were FANTASTIC. I was very, very glad to stumble over this site this morning. ♥ (Some 1x2, some 3x2, some other x2 pairings.)


- Gundam Wing/One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, I didn't intend to look at the OP fanart on this site, I meant to skip right on over to the GundamW stuff, but... there was so much OP fanart and I was just going to go through a few of them and then there were a couple of uber-cute Zoro/Nami images (especially in the hit galleries omgggg ♥) and that pairing is a weakness of mine... and then somewhere along the way, it became a quietly solid, enjoyable site. The artis really does do a very cute Nami and some cute group pictures and adorable Zoro and Chopper images that are worth going through the site for. It's definitely a site with a cumulative effect and positive feelings because of a semi-rare pairing that I like, but there are some really nice images to be found here. It's similar with the GundamW art, where there's a lot of images of all the pilots and they're cute, but I also really enjoyed the Trowa/Duo a lot. :D (Some Zoro/Nami, some Zoro/Sanji, but a lot gen for OP. Trowa/Duo and some gen for GW.)


- Gundam Wing - Sloe Gin [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Man, what GundamW fanart sites will reduce me to. But this artist does such a hot Duo! The colors are those vivid, almost glowing colors that I'm so weak towards and her Duo is really kind of badass and her Quatre is bright and airy and I've been dying for some new GundamW fanart. Her Duo is these long, lean lines and, okay, I suspect I wouldn't recognize him half of the time without the braid, but he's pretty and I think that's the important thing here. There's one where he's got a bloody scrape on his face as he stands in the rain and that illustration sort of epitomizes why I couldn't resist this site, because it's such a beautiful image, even if I have to squint to see Duo in it. Not that this is a criticism, by the way, it's simply that my view of the characters differ from the artist's, but I still see how lovely her art is. (Duo/Quatre, some gen if you step carefully.)


- Gundam Wing - eses [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist has a kind of messy style, everything is loose, light sketchy lines and light colors, but I found that it really kinda worked for me. By the time I got to the illustration of little tiny Heero and Duo (in adorable cat ears no less!) chewing on a giant strawberry, I was pretty much sold. The style isn't going to be for everyone, as I said, the art is kind of all over the place and very messy, but if you don't mind that, there's some really neat art here. It's mostly Heero/Duo art here, but there are a handful of Wufei/Duo illustrations, which isn't a pairing I usually go for, but I somehow wound up really kinda being interested in this artist's take on them, who knows why. This was a fun little site. (Heero/Duo, some Wufei/Duo.)


- Gundam Wing/Rurouni Kenshin - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was really sort of on the fence about this site for a long time, I just wasn't that sure about it and not everything was working for me. And I'm not sure how it'll go over with other people. But what kept me sticking around and eventually winning me over was a handful of illustrations that were actually really kind of super pretty, the colors would come together just right and there was just enough detail and it... just worked nicely. Quatre especially tended to get some really pretty art, but there was also a really cool one of Treize/Zechs and some interesting Heero/Duo art. So. Eventually I caved. XD As for the RK art, I took a lot less time to fall, mostly because I was already warmed up to the site and its style, but alt more sole it feels like the RK art was a lot more solid. There's a lot of really cool Shishio art, some really nice Aoshi art, some interesting takes on Kenshin and Sano, and it's the kind of site that makes me want to pick the manga back up after only getting halfway through it previously. ....and, okay, I was weak to the Sano/Kenshin art, which often got kind of really pretty. *__* (No real pairing themes, maybe a little more Heero/Duo and Trowa/Quatre than anything else, but it's largely a gen site, I'd say. Some pairings for RK, maybe some Sano/Kenshin, a lot of various ones, and some gen.)
