- Ouran Koukou Host Club - Bliss [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I picked up the link for this site off 4chan and it kicked off a whole Host Club fanart hunting session, but this site is still the best of the best. There's not a ton of art, but what's here? Is gorgeous stuff. It's not even so much that the art is pretty (though it certainly is that, too) as that it's HOT. The Kyouya/Tamaki fanart is done in what's probably my favorite style, that not quite sketch style that gives it a certain pretty (or manga/doujinshi-like) quality while not sacrificing the detail or not making the kisses astoundingly HOT. I love the artist's colors, too, almost flat in some places (in a good way), but then Tamaki's eyes or hair will just be vibrant and it creates a really cool effect. And asdlfjasdlfj, the twins. Whether they're just snuggling up together and being cute as hell or in their twin Cheshire Cat outfits or screwing the hell out of each other, they're just beautiful and I don't care that I'm abusing the bold tag now! This site may have totally spoiled me for all other Host Club sites. ♥ ♥ ♥ (Kyouya/Tamaki, Kaoru/Hikaru/Kaoru, some not-safe-for-work content occasionally.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - rakuagi [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, the more I saw of this site, the more I fell in love with it. The art can be a little tremulous at times, but other times the artist does beautiful work. There's this really beautiful one of Haruhi in her gallery, the gentle curve of her hair, the pretty lines of her arms and hands, the cute dress on her, the pretty eyes... it's just lovely in the feel of the original manga. Or the surpisingly hot Kyouya illustration right after it, with his glasses in hand and his pants legs rolled up and there's something about the way it's drawn that's really pretty, something about the inking versus the colors. And asdl;fjadlfjasdjfl tono!Tamaki in traditional clothing is awesome and shirtless!Kyouya is hot and the group illustrations are fabulous and the twins are hothothot and the art is pretty and, yes, I'm flailing over the site again. (No real warnings/pairings.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I suspect I am won over by this site because a) I like chibi-esque art and b) I am weak to the Kyouya/Tamaki top illustration. The images aren't always perfectly on, but I really like the artist's bright use of colors and Tamaki's dramatic ways come through really well and there's this really sweet one of Hunny kissing Mori's cheek that made me coo and there's Kyouya/Tamaki kissing and... well, that's all I need, really. It's probably not going to appeal to those who aren't already fans, but it's a nice stop in a whirlwind of Host Club fanart recs, I think. (Some Kyouya/Tamaki, some Hunny/Mori.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sat on the fence with this site for quite some time until... well, honestly, it was the Tamaki image with fox (I think?) ears that won me over. It was just TOO CUTE. The artist's early work is a little shakey, but she shows dramatic improvement over the course of her gallery, to the point I really, really want to see more work from her! She has this really nice, light style of coloring that works well with manga characters and Tamaki in particular, especially when she draws him all sleepy or pouty or with fox ears. ♥ She also, uh, has this one image of Kyouya that's really kinda hot and then some Kyouya/Tamaki kissing images and... well, I'm easy, okay? Especially when they're kinda pretty. ♥ (Some Kyouya/Tamaki, some Tamaki/Haruhi, some gen.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - 06chocolate [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There are about five illustrations on this site that make it totally worth going to and almost all of them are of one twin or the other. They're done in a different style from the majority of the art on the site and I think it's a noticable step up for the artist, especially one of the early ones of the twins (I forget which way their hair goes, so I'm not sure which one it is) and all that messy hair and detail on the clothes... or, hell, the one of them in their school uniforms with grins on their faces and it's not quite chibi-esque or the really pretty one of Tamaki in the dark jacket and ascot with his hair and eyes practically glowing the colors are so vibrant. It's those images that got me to rec this site and made it one of the better ones I'd come across on my hunt for fanart. (No real warnings/pairings, maybe a little of the twins.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site was really just kinda cute. Not necessary the style I always go for, the rounded CG type of stuff, but the artist certainly does draw some nice stuff when she really puts her mind to it. The first one of Kyouya/Haruhi is actually really quite good, the CG style effectively sharpens enough to make it look like an anime cel, which I'm fond of because it's not like there's much good Kyouya/Haruhi art yet. Though, the one of Mori picking Haruhi up to carry her fireman-style while Hunny goes :D at the two of them was also a nice little find. And, okay, the Tamaki/Haruhi is cute and the twins are hot together and the Kyouya/Tamaki one is gorgeous and you can really see the artist improving as she goes along. The current top illustration didn't fill me with much hope but the artist's gallery is actually really strong, I loved this site! ♥ (Pretty much whatever got a manga cover, you'll find it here.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - iceico [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Again, there's not a ton of art here, but... well, it took just the very first illustration, just that ONE to totally win me over because Nekozawa fanart is both rare and awesome. Especially Nekozawa fanart where he's either hot (which he is) or being retarded with Tamaki, which is also awesome. The joke has yet to get old and this artist plays on it beautifully and... oh, my god. The Kuma-chan vs Bereznoff standoff is a beautiful, beautiful, awesome thing. I mean, not all of the art on the site is particularily to my taste, but there's one of Tamaki tugging on Kyouya's sleeve and crying or a really quite hot one of Kyouya in a loose tie and white jacket or a really hot sketch of Nekozawa or an adorable one of Haruhi eating cake and... it's enough that I really enjoyed the site. The artist does some cute work when she's on her game. ♥ ( real pairing themes.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - Vidro [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was honestly not expecting to find a lot of Host Club art on this site, I'm not entirely sure why. Host Club sites tend to be small, I guess, doubly so for Kyouya/Tamaki art sites, maybe. But then I got here and there was kind of a lot and some of it is really kind of stunningly gorgeous. When the artist really puts her mind to it, she does these really vivid colors and sharp lines for their hair and eyes and that's the kind of thing I'm so weak to. But when you get into the sketches and stuff, you can see that her work is really solid and she's especially awesome at drawing Tamaki. *___* There are some illustrations where he's just... really beautiful, with amazing blue blue blue eyes. The most recent stuff is the really awesome art, but even the older stuff is worth a visit if you like the pairing. ♥ The whole site just delighted me, especially so because I wasn't expecting much more from Host Club fandom! (Kyouya/Tamaki.)

- Ouran Koukou Host Club - retry [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - More gorgeous Host Club art. *___* This time it's focused on Kaoru and Hikaru and the art is really, really nicely done. All fine lines and soft, pretty colors that suit the style of a shoujo manga like this. And I love that it's not just one or two illustrations here, that there's a whole bunch of them, all of them with so much detail to them and so many different poses and concepts, so many different clothes. *___* There's even a page of illustrations for the other characters (and omg it's Honey/Mori, holy crap I didn't think anyone in Japan shipped it that way! plus a really pretty Kyouya/Tamaki image and adorable Honey and Haruhi and and and--!) but you're really going here for the twins. It was a real delight to find myself here today. ♥ (Hikaru/Kaoru, a little other.)
