odds & ends

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - So, I was talking to Vikki tonight, we happened to get on the topic of One Piece when I happened to run across a Zoro/Luffy site, had fun with it, the conversation drifted over to the idea of Luffy/Nami, then saw, oooh, One Piece search engine! AHAHAHA, LUFFYXNAMI SITES HERE I COME! ♥ This is one of the first ones I ran across and I think it's already going to be one of my favorites, because the art really captures the style/feel of One Piece (there's this one of Luffy and Nami in traditional wear surrounded by sakura and in fighting stances that is just SO COOL *__*). But even more than that, it captures the feeling of what I like/see in LuffyxNami and then gives me gentle romance that makes me all swoon-y. Arms around each other, soft/fond looks, a gentle hand on the other, the occasionally gorgoeus perspective on a kiss, it all just makes me... well, fall further in love with this pairing. ♥ (Luffy/Nami.)

- One Piece - Straw Hat [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - The first thing that immediately caught my attention with this site was that the artist really captured the style of the One Piece manga/anime in a lot of the illustrations--plus, there was this series of the main characters as kids that were just fantasticly done. The other thing that caught my attention was that Chopper was just absolutely adorable, to the point where I couldn't stop muttering, "Good god, he wounds me with the cute!" to anyone on AIM with me. ^_~ It also helps that the site seems to be rather pro-LuffyxNami (as well as pro-ZoroxRobin, which I don't mind at all), which is exactly what I was looking for. This is definitely one of the best OP sites out there that manages to capture the style and spirit of the original series, recreating what makes the series so much fun for me. I love. ♥ (Some Luffy/Nami, Zoro/Robin.)

- One Piece - Greap Escape [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Of course, what immediately caught my attention about this site was the Luffy/Nami content, since that's what I was seeking, but I actually found a lot more to the site than that. The art is very cute, often using pastel-ish colors, but doing so well and I found myself fond of the style. What I really loved was that everyone was just... happy and grinning all the time, that sense of high adventure and a great time that I get from the One Piece series itself. There were a couple of illustrations that just looked great--I enjoyed the group ones almost as much as I did the Luffy/Nami. So, yeah, just an all-around positive site that I enjoyed a lot. ^_^v (Some Luffy/Nami, a lot of gen.)

- One Piece - Mugiwaranai Koisite[ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I wasn't sure what to expect when I clicked onto this site, but I was hoping for some cute OP art... and found one of my new favorite Luffy/Nami sites! *___* It's rare when I find a site where I like EVERYTHING on the page (given that it has more than, say, five illustrations), but, damn, I think I wanted to shove every single illustration on this site at everyone because they were awesome. Not only were they wonderfully drawn with great colors and lines, but they FELT like the One Piece art--just a little bit whacky, but still FUN and MEANINGFUL. I honestly can't pick a single illustration out here, but any time Luffy would put a hand on Nami's face or he would kiss her or she would smile at him... I fell in LOVE. The art here is absolutely terrific and FEELS like One Piece and reminds me of just why I love looking for OP art in the first place and TOTALLY makes me an incoherent fangirl. I love it when a site can do that. ♥♥♥♥ Ahahahaha, plus the artist had one Zoro/Sanji, which ALSO makes my day. ♥ (Luffy/Nami.)

- One Piece - Love & Piece [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Every once in awhile, I come across a site that just makes me *SQUEE* with wild abandon because it captures the feeling of the One Piece style/art so incredibly well AND gives me exactly what I want, that I just fangirl like mad crazy. This is one of those sites because the artist is incredibly talented but also because she draws some of my favorite pairings from the series AND does fantastic gen stuff. (There's the regular gallery, but also check out her Weekly Jump section, because she's got some fantastic sketches based off the chapters there. ♥) She's got that grin that Oda-sensei does down phenominally well, really helping along that sense of FUN that One Piece has. Her colors are also incredible, her lines fantastic, her poses perfect, her One Piece-tone amazing, and all of that. But, really, the thing that just made me twirl around the room in utter glee? That I believed these pairing illustrations. Sometimes, with some art sites, I have to squint a little to match the characters up with the ones in my head (This isn't an insult--this is something that happens with even the most STUNNING sites, many of which are among my absolute favorites.), but with this site... I dunno, I just SAW the characters (and pairings) that I adore so much. Because THIS is my Zoro/Nami, toally. And, really, I'm all about the squee-factor. If it makes ME fangirl, then I'm terrifically happy to have seen the site. ♥ (Some Zoro/Nami, some Sanji/Nami and some Luffy/Nami, and some gen.)

- One Piece - pumpkinhead [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I originally waffled on this site for awhile... until I realized two things. One, there are the occasionally Luffy/Nami illustrations on the site and that wins me over like there's no tomorrow. And, two, there's an R-rated gallery. The artist does rather... light, simple, airy illustrations that are nice, light treats. Though, there's one of Luffy holding Nami and has the most intense expression on his face that I love. But there's also blood-splattered!Sanji that looks way too pretty and there's a really interesting set of illustrations of when they're older and Zoro and Sanji have settled a bit more, with a kid even. I know that sounds like it should be OMG WTF EWWW, but it's really not. I like to think I'd totally react in the proper way if a ZoSan set of illustrations was too over the OOC line, but... I liked these. They were... well, cute. The characters are recognizable and I got enough of that OP vibe from the illustrations to satisfy me. That's all I ask for. XD (Zoro/Sanji, a little Luffy/Nami.)

- Full Metal Alchemist/One Piece - [ English Fanart Site ] - Okay, see, I'm a sucker for any artist that's friendly towards Luffy/Nami art. Especially when they have some nice lines and really nice coloring that looks very professional and cel-like coloring. Then you toss in little Vivi with little Carue and then you toss in a really nice Roy style with little chibi-Eds all over the place and then you toss in a bunch of One Piece character illustrations (including an utterly ADORABLE chibi-Sanji in his cute little cooking outfit) and then you toss in a Luffy/Nami fan-comic and then you toss in kitty!Royxkitty!Ed and then you toss in Ed, Al, and Winry as kids and it's all wrapped up in this really solid art with really great colors and I just had FUN with this artist. Oh! And she also does these really cool FMA bookmark illustrations that I loved and lots and lots of little gag art that always makes me grin or giggle or... well, yes, lots of stuff to enjoy here. <3 (Some Luffy/Nami, some Roy/Ed, a lot of gen, too.)

- One Piece - [ English Fanart Site ] - I think I squee'd over a lot of the art on this account individually, but I had to rec the artist as a whole because she does awesome Luffy/Nami fanart. The lines and colors and details and CG style of art really mimic the anime very well, her lines are really good, especially with the characters' hair, and god, I just adore her colors, the warm oranges and peaches and pinks that just... work with this pair. Everything sort of feels like it's sunset-colored, which is something I strongly associate with the couple, especially when added to art that's really solid like this artist's. There are, like, a zillion individual illustrations that I want to point out, like Luffy and Nami on the beach or Luffy feeding a baby or CHIBI MONKEY LUFFY or CHIBI KITTY NAMI or, hell, even HIGH SCHOOL AU LUFFY/NAMI that should not have worked, but instead wound up being just completely awesome. Just... eeee, yes. ♥ (Luffy/Nami.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - One of the first things that caught my attention about this site? "Oh, hey, neat, a ZoSan site that has art of Nami, too! I LOVE that everyone loves Nami!" Then I got a little further into the site. My reaction then? "OMG, YAY. ZoSan site that is also LuNa! This artist totally loves me! ♥" And, no, the art's not perfect, but it's light-hearted and fun, as well as containing my two OTPs. My love shimmered and sparkled the entire time I was here. You can tell the artist's favorite character is Sanji, you'll see a lot of him on the site and he probably looks the best, but... I found I actually enjoyed the Luffy/Nami stuff most of all. Maybe it's the rarity, but I think it was more that there was that certain spark between them that I love. It's mostly oekaki-style art on the site, but I find I like that here, it adds to the light-hearted quality. ....also, Luffy and Nami in a grassy field with him lying in her lap and grinning like hell up at her? Yeah, I was sold. Oh, and be sure to scout all over the site, there's a lot of art tucked into different galleries. (Zoro/Sanji, Luffy/Nami, maybe a little other.)

- One Piece - [ English Fanart Site ] - I actually came here to look for REBORN! art but wound up getting sucked in by the One Piece art instead and, okay, admittedly. I'm kind of a sucker for Luffy/Nami art, so I suspect this account will work best for those who are already fond of the pairing. XD But I really did like the art here, a lot of it was really kinda interesting and I liked that the artist tried out a bunch of different styles to create different effects... plus, there's an adorable little chibi Luffy/Nami illustration. Like I was resisting that. XD (Some Luffy/Nami, some gen.)

- One Piece - Gensou Mokeizu [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was a little hesitant about this site at first, I wasn't sure the art was going to be my thing, it looked a little off at first. But the more I clicked on the links, the more I saw the level of detail that went into the illustrations and how really kind of amazing they were. I knew I was going to be recommending the site just based on the top page illustrations alone, but then I started getting into the pairing stuff and a;lskdfjasl;kj this site has such a hot ass Nami. Even if the art is a little off sometimes, the site captures the essence of her and how totally amazing and awesome she is, how gorgeous she is, how sexy she is. And, okay, I'm easy for sites that have Zoro/Nami, especially when she's totally a match for him and they're all about the makeouts and hotness and beautiful colors mixing together. ....that's pretty much what I want from Zoro/Nami, honestly. That and pretty art, which this site totally delivers on. And. As if that weren't awesome enough, there's also some gorgeous Zoro/Nami/Luffy art. And some gorgeous Luffy/Nami art where Nami continues to be smoking hot and there are gorgeous colors and there are sexy times in some of them! YES PLZ. And there's even some stand-alone art that's really fantastic and just. a s;dlfkjasl;kjslkj it's like this artist wanted to make me happy. And how she did. (Some Zoro/Nami, some Luffy/Nami, some Zoro/Nami/Luffy, some Sanji/Nami, some other, some gen.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is definitely not going to be for everyone, it's one of those where I suspect you'll have to already be a fan of the pairing to enjoy it. But the more I wandered around the site... the more I was kind of won over by the chibi-esque style of the art and how TOTALLY FREAKING ADORABLE the art here was. And, really, the further into the gallery I got, the more I started to really genuinely appreciate the art, because the lines started getting stronger and there was more detail in the chibis and, okay, there's not much here, but! SO ADORABLE. ♥♥♥ Also! SPRITES OMG. (Luffy/Nami.)

- One Piece - AQ Todo Factory [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I started out on this site going into the older gallery, just to start back from the beginning and work my way current, which is my favorite way to look at a site, often times you get to see how much progress has or hasn't been made by then. And this site definitely started out really rough, but I think a lot of it was the coloring, because looking at the b&w sketches (especially the one of Shanks resting in a tree) you can see how supriringly decently well done the lineart is! And, okay, there's super adorable Luffy/Nami fanart on the site and I'm biased, I know this. XD But there's also a decent amount of Shanks fanart! I wish there'd been more recent art, but if you like the pairing or like the character, it might be worth a whirl through the site. <3 (Some Luffy/Nami, some gen.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually still browsing Sailor Moon sites and happened to stumble over this one. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out where the OP catagory link is and, well, okay. I admit that I was attracted to this site for the Luffy/Nami art and it appeals to me a lot more because of that, but some of the art on the site is really kinda pretty, the artist does a really beautiful Nami and some adorable group art--there's one of Luffy lightly spraying Chopper with a hose that is SO CUTE OMG. But, yeah, my favorites were the pairing stuff, especially since there's actual makeouts, instead of just hand-holding and stuff. They tended to be the prettiest. *___* (Luffy/Nami.)

- One Piece - CountDown [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - A couple of things about this site. It admittedly took me a little time to get into the artist's style/for her to really strengthen up her art, but... by the time I got to the end of the ZoSan section of the gallery, I was making a lot more *__* faces over her art with each image. The other thing that I liked about the site is that there wasn't just Zoro/Sanji art here, but there was also a lot of Zoro-only or Sanji-only or other character art and... well, obviously I liked the pairing art a lot, but I was really impressed with the standalone stuff, too! Her Sanji is especially hot. There's some gorgeous Nami ones, a couple of Luffy/Nami illustrations (omg, it makes me ridiculously happy when a site has both Zoro/Sanji and Luffy/Nami!) and I was just. Really charmed by this site. ....especially when I kept scouting around the various gallery sections and stumbled over evenmore Nami art and WHY HELLO NEW ARTIST I ADORE FOR DRAWING HALF-NAKED NAMI. *__* (Zoro/Sanji, some gen, some Luffy/Nami, some Franky/Robin.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually browsing for Sailor Moon art and... somehow ended up looking at One Piece fanart sites. But that's okay because it's a Luffy/Nami site and it's adorable art! The artist definitely has a simple style, but the coloring is so warm and makes such good use of the various shades of oranges and reds, that I'm a bit in love with it. The images are often chibi-esque in style, but somehow this manages to keep the spirit of Oda's style and the artist clearly loves playing around with different universes--the Strong World universe or a Pokemon fusion or just a cute Halloween costume image--and it wasn't hard for me to get caught up in that enthusiasm. There's even some really cute group images, too! It's not a massive site, there was really only a couple handfuls of art, but it was just... so inside my wheelhouse for this pairing that I loved it anyway. (Luffy/Nami.)

  - One Piece - [ Pixiv Account ] - Do you know what's another thing I love? A really cute Zoro/Nami piece to catch my attention that'll lead me back to an account that has a bunch more really cute art with shoujo, sparkly, bright colors that are totally my thing. Also, there is hotass Zoro. And a STRONGWORLD inspired Luffy/Nami hug. And Nami and Namizou in awesome clothes. And Luffy and Zoro both hugging Nami in their own ways with more warm, almost shoujo-style coloring. And, really, I wanted to say something coherent about this artist, how the lineart is really good in a lot of images, how I like the colors, how I'm totally in love with their love for Nami, etc. But then there's Nami at four stages in her life all bundled together or the Durarara!! pairing with Nami (or Namizou) in the Strawhats' outfits and I'm just too *___*♥ to be coherent. This artist is totally my kind of thing, I have to admit. *___* (Some Zoro/Nami, some Luffy/Nami, some other/Nami, a few NC-17 images, but there's also some gen.)

  - One Piece - [ Pixiv Account ] - Granted, I have a lot of weaknesses when it comes to One Piece, but Zoro/Robin is genuinely among them. Maybe not one I seek out as often as I do other ships, but when I come across it? Yeah, I'm all over it. So I jumped at this account when I saw the most recent (at the time, of course) image of Zoro slinging Robin over his shoulder in their STRONGWORLD clothes and, sure, I could have done without the pantyshot of it, but otherwise! Kind of totally my thing! Then the artist sealed the deal with me by having a really cute Luffy/Nami post-time skip image that I liked and a whoooole lot more Zoro/Robin. The earlier the art, the less sure it is, so it's probably not going to be for everyone (or non-Zoro/Robin fans) but I think the artist shows a lot of potential in images like post-time-skip Zoro/Robin or Zoro/Robin in black & white or this series of meme answers. I'd like to see where they go from here, too. (Zoro/Robin, a smidge of Luffy/Nami. Occasionally NSFW.)

  - One Piece - [ Pixiv Account ] - This is another one of those accounts where I feel I should put a big warning on about the hentai art found on these pages, almost like I should feel badly for liking the artist's work, except... aside from the exaggerated porn style, the artist actually does some really delightful pieces! Luffy protecting Nami during STRONGWORLD, Nami trying to get back the recording while Luffy tries to keept it out of her hands, Luffy and Nami in their Fruit Warriors costumes, another STRONGWORLD touching moment with the two of them, a really kind of excellent Luffy/Nami kiss, and so on. If you can step lightly, there's some really fun stuff and I like the artist's very bright, solid coloring and, of course, I love how much you can feel their affection for the LuNa ship. And yet there's also a lot of affection for Hancock and a fondness for school uniforms (which I approve of) and the occasional bit of everything else. I always wind up really enjoying this artist whenever I come across a new image of theirs. ♥ (Luffy/Nami, some one-sided Luffy/Hancock, occasionally NC-17.)
