odds & ends

- Harukanaru Juku no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - does this site do a beautiful, beautiful, gay Tomomasa. *_* The colors are just wonderful, often capturing that shade of blue that I love so much about Tomomasa's hair and just... the details of his outfits.... *_* Plus, there's a nice selection of the characters were, really making it fun to go through--I could point out several individual illustrations that I just adored to pieces, but... the comic of Tomomasa and Takamichi... I swoon with how much I loved that. There's also this gorgeous valentine's day one of the two of them... just... wow did I love the details. *_* Oh! And the calendar illustrations! God were those pretty. Just... so much to love. *sparkles* (Some Tomomasa/Akane, possibly some mild, mild Tomomasa/Takamichi.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is one of the first sites where I started to realize how very popular Yasuaki is (which only further strengthens my Subaru association with him XD) and first got an inkling of the popularity of the Yasuaki x Akane pairing in the J-fandom. This site does some really cool CG style work, drawing the characters with these cool little effects and using these colors that aren't quite pastel, but just soft enough to look neat. There are also a couple in here that, if it were possible, would have turned me into a YasuakixAkane fan, they were just that lovely. Plus, there's a lot of art here, which always makes me happy. ^_^ (A lot of Yasuaki/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Tea Party [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is one of those good, solid sites that I like so much when surfing around. The artist does a lovely Yorihisa and some really nice Yorihisa/Akane (even if the pairing isn't my cup of tea), but! She drew Tomomasa in a lavendar tuxedo. Twice even. I love. Love, love, love. *sparkles* And even I'll admit that the Tomomasa/Akane illustrations were rather pretty. Oh! And the one Tenma/Akane illustration was very pretty~ Nice, nice site. ^_^ (Some Yorihisa/Akane, Tomomasa/Akane, and Yasuaki/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Juku no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This site has a lot of really cute art tucked away, so it's worth it to explore around a bit. I think my favorite has to be the chibi-neko-Takamichi-and-Tomomasa eating watermelon illustration because it is one of the most darling things I have seen in my life. *sparkles* I absolutely love the way this artist does Takamichi, the kind where he's so cute and sweet you just want to molest him... risk of getting a fan shoved into an uncomfortable place afterwards or no. XD There's also this one of him in the snow... I just melt from how adorable he is. And! And! The artist has done one of my favorites of Tenma--a Valentine's one where he's sitting backwards on a chair with the cutest blush on his face. I love. ^_^ (Some Takamichi/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Juku no Nakade - Celestial [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This site does some kick ass CG work (look in the 'neo romance' section for the Harukanaru stuff), especially a gorgeous Tomomasa. *_* Though, her Yasuaki is nice, too! I usually found myself liking the group illustrations the best, the artist has a real talent for melding a bunch of characters together like she does. Just... nice site, I liked it a lot. ^_^ (Some Tomomasa/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - love love yasuaki [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is one of those sites that just has a nice, solid style, the art is well-done, has really pretty colors, good lines, does nice character portrait-type illustrations and you can tell they have a real love for the characters, especially Yasuaki. They've done illustrations of all the characters though (or at least the main eight Hachiyou) and they're all just so cute! XD Merrggghhh, I write crappy recs, don't I? =_= Anyway, I liked the site, very cute. ^_^ (A teeny, tiny bit of Yasuaki/Akane, but only one or two illustrations.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Sea Farm [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - ....I just kinda liked this artist's style, it's a little bit different, just enough to make it seem kinda cool. It was a bit difficult for me to get into at first, but by the time I was looking at the artist's illustrations of Tomomasa, I was sold, because she does him really, really well. *_* I'm also developing a sort of crush on Akuram and I liked the illustration of him on the site, too. ^_^ Plus, there's this section of the site where the artist does a series of illustrations of the characters as doctors that I just thought was neat! XD (No real warnings, a little het, Hachiyou/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This artist draws the cutest Takamichi, I just want to glomp onto him and molest him so much. The artist does some really nice things with colors, they're bright and pretty, but without being gaudy, using some really nice shading to make them seem... vibrant. There's one of Tomomasa here that just makes me swoon with how beautiful he is... and then I get sent into orbit by the one of Hisui. *_* There's also one of Takamichi in the snow (With actual java-scripted snow falling over the image! I loved that!) that's just gorgeous as well, using CG artwork really, really well. Ohhh, and the one of him with the sakura petals flying around.... *____* So, yeah, while the main pairing isn't my favorite, I found I didn't care, because the artist drew such nice artwork, and that doesn't happen that often. ^_~ (Some Takamichi/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - The art on this site can be a little tough to find (I was randomly browsing some of the short stories/novels and found a link from a fic illustration back to the main gallery by browsing the parent directories), but it's definitely there if you look long enough. Anyway, not all of the art was my particular cup of tea, but every so often I would come across an illustration of Yasuaki that would just floor me because it was amazingly gorgeous. It also helps that there is a ton of art to go through here and I always like that. ^_^v So, yeah, good, solid site that was a lot of fun. (Some Yasuaki/Akane.)

- Apocripha/0/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - White Balloon [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - ....dude. Wow. The Apocriph/0 art here is just flat-out amazing. Since Apocripha/0 is a CG game in the first place, the CG art here is especially appropriate, which did give me pause and wonder if I'd stumbled onto an official site or something because the fanart here is just that damn good (though, I'm 99% certain they are not official images) and even going back over the illustrations as I rec this site... I'm still blown away by how good the art is. The colors are amazing, the lines and proportions amazing, the poses amazing, the shading amazing, just... guh. I can't do a proper rec because I'm fangirling so much. The Haruka illustrations are also very pretty, the colors sharp and bright, but without being too gaudy, really using the CG style well. Very, very, very nice site. *_* (Some yaoi, some het--major pairings being Jade/Platina and Yorihisa/Akane, a little bit not!Yasuaki(I can never remember his name)/Karin.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Ahh, such cute art! I don't mean in a cutesy way, but just that the art makes me smile to see it, the characters are pretty and cute, and there's a nice selection in the main gallery and in the gifts gallery. Very, very solid art style, very nice for the series (and I really like the design of the main page), plus! Plus! Some TenmaxAkane and KatsuzanexKarin! *sparkles muchly* (Pretty much all Hachiyou/Akane, some Katsuzane/Karin.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Kinakodon [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Goodness does this site do a beautiful Yasuaki. Just... wow, this is the kind of art that I could almost mistake some of them for official art, it's done so well. They're very soft and pretty, very manga-like, which lends a very beautiful atmosphere to the illustrations. I also fangirled so hard at the one of Tomomasa and Takamichi, it's just gorgeous. They all are, really--and I love that the site does all the characters, there's a wonderful variety here, some absolutely lovely group illustrations, just an adorable Akane, and some reallyreallyreally pretty Haruka 2 group illustrations as well. Yeah, okay, I think I've fawned enough now. ^_~ (Some Yasuaki/Akane hints.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade/Hunter x Hunter - Rain Shrine [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - The first thing to catch my atttention with this site is the almost pastel colors that I would have thought I wouldn't like, but really work for Haruka--I suppose that's because the series itself was very pastel. But, I'm always happy when someone can draw a cute Akane, because I really like her and the artist draws all the characters to be just wonderfully cute. The lines are very nice, the colors are wonderful and the poses are heartwarming and uplifting, the kind that just make you want to smile. Plus, I got vibes off the artist's Yasuaki and Eisen and that always makes me happy. XD So, very, very cute, very pretty art, I liked the site a lot, and it was nice to get back to Haruka for a little while. XD Plus? That illustration of Akuram? Lovely. *_* And then the Hunter x Hunter art is much the same, with the colors maybe a little more... golden, I guess. Which is really appropriate since the artist focuses a lot on Kurapika. Anyway, I loved the HxH art as well, it was just so cute and pretty and made me smile to see it. And such cute comics! *happy sigh* (Akane/Hachiyou, maybe a little Yasuaki/Eisen.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Amethyst [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Such beautiful Eisen art here. *_* I love all the Harukanaru characters, so I'm generally happy whenever I stumble over anything pretty, especially when it's this kind of pretty--slightly pastel, soft colors, airy feeling, nice, long, elegant lines, just beautiful. The details are fantastic and Eisen looks just beautiful, and the Eisen/Akane is cute. ^_^ One thing you'll want to keep in mind is that the art is tucked into several different places on this site, so you'll want to keep looking around. (Some Eisen/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Y's Factory [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I admit, I really sat on the fence over this site for awhile because the proportions are shakey and the colors are very bright, but... you know what? This journal/site is about stuff I enjoyed and this site gave me my Katsuzane/Karin fix and that makes me happy. Especially when a lot of the illustrations are just a little bit ecchi. <3 (And some hentai if you know where to look for it.) The site isn't going to be for everyone and, hell, I wasn't sure it was going to be for me, either, but... I'm weak against my favorite pairings and there were a couple of really nice Hisui illustrations on the site or the occasional really nice Katsuzane or Yasuaki and Yasutsugu together or just whatever. I had fun. <3 (Some Katsuzane/Karin, some other/Karin.)

- Prince of Tennis/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - UN [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site I know I've visited before, but I can't find it on my page of links, so if I wind up rec'ing it twice.... >__> Originally, there was only the one Prince of Tennis illustration (which I can't find now and it was one of my favorites, it was a gorgeous one of Tezuka mid-game) and a fair amount of HaruToki ones (I know I've seen the HaruToki ones because I KNOW I've seen that illustration of Yukitaka with the spirit coming out of his scroll), but when I went back this morning there was an utterly gorgeous one of Yagyuu that I'd never seen before, so I knew I was going to have to babble about the site. The artist has that style that looks... almost more like they're paintings (even if they're still CG) because the colors are just so incredible and smooth. The details are really nice and everything is just... it's all so elegant and beautiful. The HaruToki ones especially just... they're all so lush looking, so rich looking, that I'm in love with the site. (A little Hachiyou/Akane/Karin, but probably more gen than anything.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Rain Shrine [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - And this was just a cute, adorable site with some nice art--the artist seems very fond of Eisen/Akane and she uses these really pretty, soft colors that make me really kinda like the art. With a series like this, colors can really make or break the art, so it's good that hers are nicely done and compliment the cute, nice lineart that she has. There are also a bunch of little mini-comics which are always nice and she does the occasional illustration with Yasuaki in it and the further and further you go through the gallery, the tighter and better her art gets. Her Akane is just adorable and I always like it when Akane is drawn cutely and I'm easily won over by illustrations of Yasuaki and Eisen together and, ooh, there's a very nice one of Akuram towards the very beginning of the gallery that I really like a lot. So, all in all, a very fun little site. (Some Eisen/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, I love this site! The artist's Yasuaki is terrific, using these really subtle colors that enhance the clean lines and level of details really nicely, which sounds like a bland sort of thing to say, but it's hard to put into words why I like this artist's work. They're really pretty, especially the Yasuaki alone stuff, which... the artist really seemed to take her time with the details to both his hair and clothes, along with having her best proportions on those illustrations and... well, I keep coming back to the colors. They're... it's not dull or even muted, but somehow, they're... quiet, subdued colors and that works just so well for Yasuaki, especially with his onmyoujitsu robes. Plus, there's this one illustration of Yasuaki walking down a road with archways all along it that just takes my breath away every time I see it, for some reason. (Some Yasuaki/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Forest Notes [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I knew I'd have to rec this site, too, right from the top illustration, because the art is so... soft and the kind that makes the pastel colors really work for it. Very pretty and shoujo-like, but that works for this series, I think. The art is nicely drawn, the lines nice, the details good, but it's really that sense of... soft, delicate, and pretty shoujo that wins me over, because it's not just sort of an element, the artist really goes for it. Plus, another site with an illustration of Akuram taking his mask off and all of the Hachiyou's hair looks fantastic and all shiny and I really do adore the colors. I hesitate to call them almost pastel, because that probably gives the wrong impression and I really love the shades of blue especially. Just... beautiful colors. *__* (Hachiyou/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Sand NET [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Yet another site I know I've been to before, but it's not on my links page and I couldn't figure out what rec might have gone with it. So. Onto the page it goes again. I like this site because there's a lot of art on it and because there's the occasional really nice Akuram or Yasuaki illustration on it. Akuram's outfits are very nicely detailed and the backgrounds look fantastic and they're really impressive looking. The Yasuaki illustrations... well, the character seems to be the artist's favorite, which reflects in how often he's drawn and how good he looks. The older illustrations can be kinda off, but the newer ones have tightened up a lot and make me wish the artist would do more like that because they're really, really nice. Oh, and how could I resist a site that has a couple of nice illustrations of Akuram sans mask? *__* (Mostly gen, with a handful of Hachiyou/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - The Promise Land [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The thing that really sticks out about this artist for me is this sense of... her lines and coloring are very, very cel-like in a lot of ways, her lines very clean so that the images end up looking something like professional. There's one of the Hachiyou in modern clothes, standing against a blue sky and sunflowers being tossed in the air around them that's just... sharp and really nicely detailed. There's also one of Yasuaki in racecar gear or this really nice one of Yorihisa leaning against his sword or a lot of others that are just... clean and sharp, I guess. Plus, there's a lot of art on the site, which always makes me happy. :D Her favorite seems to be Yasuaki (so his fans would probably get the most out of the site), but there's usually at least one really nice illustration for each of the Hachiyou. (Mostly gen, maybe a little Hachiyou/Akane.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Holy hell, I think my brain just exploded from the sheer beauty of this site. I don't know how I haven't seen this artist's site before because her art is just flat-out incredible, from the amazing CG style of art to the incredible colors that she uses, each illustration is just... really, I'm so, so impressed. And, hell, these aren't even my pairings. The strength of her art is evident especially in her recent stuff, which is just tremendously detailed and... well, her favorite character is obviously Isato and each illustration of him is incredible to see, but I personally wound up just staring at the Kagetoki illustrations because they were just... I mean, every last detail of his clothes and the incredible way his hair is done and the beautiful colors used for him... really, the site just sort of reduces me to incoherency. The first individual Kagetoki illustration is just.... *gibbers* Oh, oh, and that first one of Benkei? Oh, my god was that gorgeous. From his face to his hair to the hood he's wearing to the flames in the background, just... holy shit, that's gorgeous. The whole site is just... awesome. *____* (Frequent Isato/Karin, a little bit Katsuzane/Karin, a little Katsuzane/Isato, a little Kagetoki/Hinoe, and the various incarnations thereof.)

- Howl's Moving Castle/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade 3/Death Note/Peacemaker - MELROSE'S [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - ....well, god knows I haven't managed to learn the HaruToki3 characters' names yet, so I'm going to be crap at explaining which characters are represented well, but, man, do I love this site. It's got amazing HaruToki3 art, the level of details of the characters' costumes and hair and eyes is just fantastic. Plus, it's the HMC site that I've been looking for since I finished the movie and the book, the one that isn't just cute or adorable, but the art is beautiful. The artist has everything, the style, the lines, the coloring, the incredible detail, the sense of fun, all of it comes together and looks so clean and professional and amazing. There are certain illustrations on the site that are the kind I can spend a good five minutes looking at them (Howl curled up on his bed in his room from the movie being one of them... or, god, Howl and Sophie sitting in a tree on a cold night with all these beautiful lights surrounding them... *__*), but even the sketches are fantastic because you can see that the artist's basic lineart is amazingly solid. Some of her Peacemaker sketches wound up being some of my favorites because you could see that she wasn't just covering up with a lot of detail or shiny colors, the basic b&w lineart itself was fantastic and the characters looked just... I flap my hands and gush over this site because, yes, I've been looking for this one for awhile now. ♥ (Howl/Sophie, HaruToki3 het, some Peacemaker shounen ai maybe, no DN warnings/pairings.)

- Gundam SEED/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade/Gintama - HoramakiNet [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sat on the fence about this site for awhile, since I'm not as into the SEED Destiny side of things as much as I am with the original SEED pairings, but... I kept at the site because the CG-style art wasn't bad at all. And then when it got to the Ashuran/Cagalli fanart that I wanted to see? Yeah, that's when the site got kinda squeeful for me. But they're so cute together and Cagalli is so pretty in her green dress with her gold hair and Ashuran's eyes are so bright and green and everything is shiny! I totally fall for that kind of thing. And then there's also Kira/Lux and in some of them, they look older and, man, they're kinda hot together. They're much the same as what won me over with the Ashuran/Cagalli--so much shining hair and kickass clothes and beautiful eyes and they're always touching each other, which gets my romantic fangirl going. And also the same pretty much applies to the HaruToki3 and Gintama fanart, it has the same bright colors and loads of detail and shining CG style that's used pretty well. The kind of site that makes me feel all shoujo-y in the good way. Probably not going to appeal unless you like the pairings, but if you do... it's a really nice site. And maybe even if you don't--the Gintama ones weren't my pairings, but I found the art to be pretty enough? :D (Ashuran/Cagalli, Kira/Lux, a smidge of Dearka/Millie, Okita/Kagura and Hijikata/Gin, and HaruToki het pairings.)

- Gundam SEED/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Souju-Dou [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was ready to skip over this site, the G-SEED art was solid, but it was more SEED Destiny than it was the the original SEED series and I'm not sure how I feel about Shinn/Stellar yet, despite that I think they're kinda cute. The colors were nice, the proportions were sometimes off, but you could tell the artist was getting better. Then I hit up the girl's side stuff and found HaruToki fanart... and, okay, yes, the proportions were still a little wonky at times, the chins too long or what have you, but the artist got everything else beautifully right. The details of the clothing, the beautiful coloring, the way everything seems to flutter or stream in the wind, the way there's so much beautiful hair all over the place and there's this gorgeous sense of... I don't know what to call it. Something like texture of the clothing, the way it looks not entirely 2D somehow. Something like that. Whatever it is, I wound up rather adoring this site and the way the artist drawns. There's a solid quality to the art that's really professional and she's gonna do some awesome work someday. (Shinn/Stellar, various HaruToki het pairings.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - transistor radio [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, as much as I love pairings, especially shounen ai pairings with all those pretty boys, there are times when I want to indulge my girly side and revel around in some het romance with the HaruToki series. This site was happy enough to provide that for me, along with a lot of single-character illustrations that were just... almost delicate at times, sometimes just b&w sketches that were almost... whispy, I guess... in places, other times the vibrancy of the CG colors practically glowing right off the screen in that way I also love. But one of the best things about the site? There's some light smut. Tasteful light smut, not the hentai doujinshi kind. And pretty multi-page comics that could be beautiful doujinshi if the artist inked them and I wonder why she hasn't and, god, the ornate and beautiful clothing on the characters and even when she's just sketching, everything is beautiful. Multiple pairings and god knows I can never remember most of their names, but I have vague attachements to the characters and it's enough to send me into that happy, twirly shoujo love sort of mood. *spins happily* (Several het pairings, a smidge of gen, occasional not-work-safe content.)

- Saiunkoku Monogatari/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - First things first, thank you to Tammaiya for helping me out with the Saiunkoku search engine so I could better search through the sites. Second, OMG YAY JAPAN LOVES ME AGAIN. See, I really love Shuuei/Kouyuu but I also really love Reishin/Kouyuu and kind of wanted it desperately. So when this site came along, with its gorgeous standalone character art and then a handful of really pretty Reishin/Kouyuu art, I was sent into fits of fangirl happiness. FITS OF FANGIRL HAPPINESS. Seriously, the art is so pretty and the art hits all the right tones with Kouyuu being such a hissing wet cat or surpisingly vulnerable in that way he has. There's also a surprising amount on the site, you can find a lot tucked away in the junk section. The site has one of the prettiest Ryuuren images I've seen, some fabulous Ran brothers art, and some very nice group art. Overall, the site probably would have been one of my favorites just for the skill of the artist, but the Reishin/Kouyuu put it over the top, definitely. ♥ As for the HaruToki3 fanart, it was very solid and often very pretty; the artist has a way with these bright, almost airy colors that I really like. I admit, I was more bowled over by the Saiunkoku art, but the HaruToki3 art is really nice and definitely worth a whirl through the site for. (Some Reishin/Kouyuu, some other het, some other yaoi, a lot of gen. HaruToki is a mix of various yaoi/het pairings and gen.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - As I've mentioned before, often times a site will have a sort of cumulative affect on me, where sorting through several dozen oekaki images will give me a sense of satisfaction that just a handful of them might not have. This artist actually can do some really gorgeous stuff, looking at the handful of illustrations she takes her time on, you can see that, but often the cute oekakis are almost as much fun. And I really do love that she draws almost every het pairing, so it feels like a true "dating sim" site, rather than just a pairing site. Which works better for me with Haruka 3 since I don't have a set pairing preference like I do with the others. (Most Nozomi het pairings.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Soda Rain [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - While I came here for the Kurou/Nozomi, I stayed for everything the artist had to offer because, holy crap, that's some really pretty art. There's just... so much detail in her images and she's got that game-cg style down (yet with a hint of shoujo, which is totally appropriate <3), in both the colors/lines and in the poses of the characters. And, again, the characters' hair is just so pretty, the way it flows in the wind or shines in the moonlight with this artist's hand. ....and did I mention her Kurou is seriously hot? I mean, all of her characters are, but there are certain images of Kurou that completely knocked my socks off with how gorgeous he was. (Kurou/Nozomi mostly, but a lot of Everyone/Nozomi het.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Chica [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I feel like maybe I've recommended this site before. But I don't see it on my recs list, so if it's a re-rec... well, that happens sometimes! And I really do like this site, I took to it almost immediately, with the very lovely watercolor-esque illustrations of Kurou and Nozomi. They're very warm, sweet images, very adorable and make me just want to coo at how warm-hearted everything is in her color images. Her b&w images aren't as common, but looking at them was a treat because you could see how talented the artist really was--there's one of Kurou/Nozomi where they're lying back together, their hair spilling out around them and all this gorgeous detail on their clothes, it's one of my very favorites from the site. ♥ (Mostly Kurou/Nozomi, a smidge of gen, and a little other/Nozomi het.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Wow, it did not take me long at all to fall in love with ths site. The artist uses these really beautiful light pastel colors that work so well in the game, but still has her own style so it's just... this really pretty blend of the two. Her characters are so soft and lovely to look at, her illustrations are so often... I'm not sure I can put my finger on it, because it's not like they're super-detailed (though, they have a lot of very nice details, especially the way she draws their clothes and hair omg *__*) but they feel very... satisfying, very finished. I really loved this site a lot. ♥ (A lot of everyone/Nozomi het, some everyone/Akane het, but worth it for the gen, too.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - CMYK [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a lot of art on this site, but the illustrations that are on the site were so pretty, so beautifully colored and so full of lovely details, just so pretty to look at, that I couldn't help recommending it. It's a site that gave me a little fix and a few pretty images to look at when I went on my fanart hunting spree and I would really love to see more from this artist. (Maybe some het, but nothing I'm going to warn for.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Half of the illustrations on this site aren't my thing, but the other half are just beautifully drawn and are totally worth going through the entire galleries for. Nozomi looks lovely and the illustrations can be just full of these fantastic, lush details when the artist really puts a lot of effort into the drawing. The Halloween one, for example, is just gorgeous, wow. But, in the end, I enjoyed more of the illustrations (even the oekaki ones, which is how I came to the site in the first place, clicking on the website link for the artist of a really pretty oekaki on another board) than I skimmed over, which is enough for me. (Hachiyou/Nozomi, no real single theme.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade/Okami - dominopepper [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is a really lovely site, the colors are really lush and pretty to look at, making the art that much more interesting to look at. The artist draws an especially cute Nozomi and a very, very nice Tomomori, their hair and clothes look lovely. There's a lot of silliness on the site, a lot of gag stuff and goofy expressions/poses, which I tended to skim over personally (simply it's not to my taste is all) but everything is very nicely drawn, it's a nice site to run through when I'm looking for a Harutoki fix. And I was originally going to skip over the Okami part of the site (since it didn't seem like there was a ton of art at first glance), but I was browsing through the galleries anyway and... first there was a really nice Waka/Amaterasu image and then there was a nice human!Amaterasu design and I am totally a sucker for that. There's also some really cute, brightly colored art from the Oina tribe and is a really enjoyable site. (Some Tomomori/Nozomi, some everyone/Nozomi het, no Okami pairings/warnings.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - milca [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's some really pretty art here, very light and airy pastel colors a lot of times which works for the Harutoki series really well. Plus, the artist draws a really cute Nozomi The further I got into the gallery, the more detail there was on the characters' clothes and in their hair, there's a page of Kurou/Nozomi where their clothes especially just look gorgeous. It was a nice little site to stumble over almost by accident. ♥ (Some Kurou/Nozomi, some Isato/Karin, some other het, some gen.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Akenoyuki [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - After the previous Harutoki site I'd visited, I hadn't really planned on going much further, but I always at least take a quick look around in case there's a new site or one I hadn't previously seen that would catch my eye. Of course, this meant that I wound up on a few more sites, including this one, which first got my attention with some really pretty sketches (the Kurou illustrations especially jumped out at me ♥ but there are also some super-cute Nozomi sketches!) and then with the more fully done regular illustrations, which had some really amazing detail and some really pretty colors. It's not always perfect art, but it's very very pretty and I really adored stumbling over this site. It gave attention to various characters/pairings and it's one of those sites that reminds me of why I keep coming back to Harutoki art. (Several het pairings, a lot of gen, no real single theme.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - milky milky milky!! [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist is very clearly a fan of Benkei, almost every single illustration is of him, but... I find that I don't really mind that, even if my personal favorites lie elsewhere. The artist clearly had fun with the illustrations and some of them look just beautiful, especially with the lovely soft pastel colors that fit so well with the game's coloring itself. There's all that pretty hair and flowing clothes and it's hard not to be won over by that sort of thing. XD (Some Benkei/Nozomi, but mostly it's a gen site.)

- Code Geass/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - After stumbling over this site, I almost don't even want to touch the Code Geass fandom anymore, because nothing can ever be more fantastic than this site was to me. It's my favorite style--the soft colors mixed with pretty almost-shoujo-style lines, almost airy with how they often trail off in long sweeps, each illustration getting prettier than the last. I love the sunshiney style that the artist often uses, I love when she does a more anime-cel-style image because she does great with that, too, but mostly I love how pretty the art is. It starts off cute, but it's towards the current stuff where it gets really lovely and every time I see the image of Shirley flying into Lelouch's arms in the pretty pink and peach-colored image, I have to stop and admire. So, I loved this site a lot already. I loved the lineart and shading and detail in the gorgeous comics. But the site wasn't content with just that. No, it gave me porn, too. *__* Really, really pretty porn that wasn't just one or two images, either. And, yes, a lot of the effect of this site was a cumulative one--the more I saw, the more I was charmed, but I really did love it whole-heartedly. This is what I wanted from fandom. *___* As for the Harutoki art, it's mostly Harutoki2 and a little older, so Karin looks kind of off sometimes, but she is so SUPER CUTE that I found it hard to really complain. I love that the artist totally did a great job with the colors for her, too, making this a really delightful site. (Lelouch/Shirley, with a NSFW gallery as well. Everyone/Karin for Harutoki.)

- Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I kind of went back and forth on this site for awhile, the characters do look awfully willowy/skinny at times. But then the artist would put in a surprising amount of detail or the colors would look really good and I was just kind of quietly charmed. When the artist draws from certain angles or focuses on the hair/clothes of the characters, she does a really lovely job, she's totally got that soft, airy/snowy thing down. (Which I'm totally weak to.) The site is mostly focused on Harutoki3 and 4 and it really did make me terribly curious about Harutoki4, the girl looks lovely already. <3 (....mostly het, various pairings, don't make me try to label this one.)
