odds & ends

- Naruto - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I suspect that one of the things that made me rather fond towards this site is that it has NejiHina fanart! ♥ Not a ton, there's probably more KibaHina fanart than any other pairing, but enough that I was humming happily as I went through the gallery. It's also that the artist does a really lovely Hinata, she has this gentle look on his face or this delicate touch to her face and hair and eyes or she just being cute as heck around the other characters. And I really do love the art because it can be so pretty, especially when she's drawn the characters in the middle of a gust of wind and you can see how pretty she really does draw their hair or when you can see she spent a lot of time on their eyes and they're just lovely... actually, in a lot of ways, the art reminds me of Fruits Basket, which somehow just utterly works here. *__* (Mostly Kiba/Hinata, some Neji/Hinata, maybe a few others.)

- Naruto/Bleach/Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, man. This is totally my new favorite NejiHina site, because it's just gorgeous. I mean, the very first image I saw was of an older Neji and Hinata, where her hair had grown out and he was holding her close and she was blushing and it was just so soft and pretty and the colors practically shone in that way I love and I totally squeaked in happiness. The artist's lines are fantastic, probably my favorite type, the kind that are just the right width, look so clean, but then are just tremendously beautiful. The coloring helps even further, because the artist just has this style that... shines is the only way I can think to describe it. And, man, her NejiHina totally does it for me, because there are so many different poses and a certain sort of delicate intimacy that just works for the pairing. I get all wobbly every time I see them in kimono and Neji's pulling her close or the underwater kiss or-- ....not that NejiHina is the only pairing on this site, some of the Gaara/Naruto illustrations are fantastic, I love, love, love the one of them both as Hokage. And there's a ton of gen stuff that's totally worth visiting for. Then there's the Bleach section that started out with a beautiful Ikkaku/Yumichika, provided me with a gorgeous Renji in the oekaki section, and totally made me spaz for the pretty one of Yachiru doing Zaraki's hair. Also, I swear this site has one of Hitsugaya's face in Matsumoto's boobs again. You really cannot go wrong with either of those. The Prince of Tennis section is much the same, spending time between TakaFuji and InuKai for the most part and while I don't seek those pairings out often, when I stumble across them, it's nice. There's not a ton of art here for Tenipuri, but the handful of OishiEiji and couple of TezuRyo images also make it worth the visit? (Neji/Hinata, some Shikamaru/Temari, some Naruto/Hinata, a lot of gen. Bleach pairings are all over the place, a lot of gen. Taka/Fuji, Inui/Kaidoh, a hint of Oishi/Eiji, a hint of Tezuka/Ryoma.)

- Naruto - Pororoco [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Originally, I wasn't sure I was going to recommend this site, but... the artist quickly got really good, her Neji fanart is fantastic, and then she had NejiHina fanart! One with them being absolutely adorable little kids together and the colors were bright and lovely and it was just happy and I squeed. But what really, really won me over was the one of them a little older, Neji's hands on Hinata's shoulders as he leans against her back, Hinata's kimono half off her as she turns toward him and there are all these beautiful shades of gray and purple and beautiful patterns on the kimono and highlights in their hair and... love. So much love for my inner NejiHina fangirl. The artist has a really interesting style, it's sort of like a painting in the way she's colored/shaded the images, the colors feeling very rich and almost textured. You can tell the artist has a real fondness for Neji's character, so she focuses on him a lot, but I also enjoy the images of him with others and, omg, the Team 10 b&w comic is a thing of beauty for Lee and Tenten as well. I really, really liked this site. ♥ (Some NejiHina, some Neji gen.)

- Naruto/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is going to be another one of those sites that isn't going to be for everyone, but that I found myself rather fond of. Part of it is that the Neji/Hinata fanart is absolutely adorable and, yes, I'm weak to the pairing, but the art actually is really good. It's got that nice, smooth CG coloring and it's shiny without being too over the top about it. The art is very cute, almost chibi-esque, but that doesn't bother me because I usually want to scoop Hinata up and happily squish her in a great big hug anyway, you know? I also love that the artist's current work is getting to be really well-done, her details are coming along wonderfully and she adds just enough of a softening filter and shine to the images that I go all fluttery over them. Hinata in kimono is just... *happy sigh* I love the artist's colors. Now, not everyone is going to be into the almost lolicon-ish images when Hinata is put in... uh, compromising positions, but they're (mostly) easy enough to skip over if they're not your thing. As for the Gintama fanart, it's pretty much all of the same as above (except substituting Kagura in for Hinata), the adorable little characters, the pretty colors, the nice shine to everything, except possibly a bit more consistent. I really enjoyed the artist's Gintama works a lot. It, uh, didn't hurt that there was a page of Hijikata/Okita, too. ♥ (Neji/Hinata, maybe a hint of Naruto/Hinata, a lot of Hinata gen. A lot of Kagura pairings, but a lot of gen for her, too.)

- Naruto - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It took me a minute to figure out if I'd recommended this site already or not, but since I can't find it anywhere on my list, I think I just drooled over the site and set it aside to go through again later. There's just... something about this site that really sent me into orbit. Part of it is, of course, the Neji/Hinata fanart, but it's more than just that, there's a certain level of quality to the art that impresses me. Something about the details of certain images or the strong lines or the pretty colors... or maybe it's Hinata leaning against Neji while sleeping. A lot of the art isn't stellar, but there are just enough that hit me really hard (and how anyone can't be hit by Neji and Hinata as kids sleeping on each other, I'll never know ♥) that I think it's one of the better sites for NejiHina fans, since there are so many different artists represented on the site. :D Also, hey, NejiHina ero section, I totally am weak for that. XD Though, ah. Not everyone else will react the same way I did. <3 (Neji/Hinata.)

- Naruto - *SuperNova [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I actually came here to look for Bleach fanart, but wound up completely distracted by the Naruto art, because that is some seriously gorgeous NejiHina art right here. The first few were lovely, but it was once I got a little further into the gallery that I really fell for the site--the sunset one with only their silhouettes against the setting (or rising, I guess) sun is just so pretty. ANBU!Neji is also really hot and while not everything on the site is perfect, some of the illustrations are not-to-be-missed, the art style is sharp and has a lot of detail and looks excellent in b&w. Also, there's an image of Neji and Hinata doing CARAMELLDANSEN, which Neji looks totally thrilled about really, and it's AWESOME. XDb (Neji/Hinata.)
