odds & ends

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This site first caught my attention with the way the artist drew Sanji, the colors of the first illustration were so vivid and the lines were fantastic. Throughout the rest of the site, the artist works with different styles (some more CG-y than others), but always has a very strong sense of color, which is good with a blonde haired, blue-eyed character like Sanji. The artist also draws a nice Zoro and it doesn't hurt that she seems to be a bit of a ZoroxSanji fan, which is a pairing that's captured my fancy quite securely. And the one of Sanji in all black, smirking at the 'camera'? HOT. And the sleeping Sanji? So pretty. And that's what this site gave me--a series of, "Eeeee! That's so cool!" illustrations with Sanji. NICE. Also, be sure to check out the regular gallery AND the specific One Piece 'Indoor-Garden' section. (Some ZoroxSanji.)

- One Piece - DRAGHEAD [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - There's not a lot of art here, but what there is is wonderfully colored and shaded and has a quality that I can't quite put my finger on to describe why I like it so much. I think a lot of it is the lineart, which is very clean and sharp and the colors are subtle, which doesn't take away the focus from the nice lines. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the artist draws a great Zoro and seems to be fond of Zoro/Sanji. I'd love to see more from this artist, especially her Zoro art. (Some Zoro/Sanji.)

- Naruto/One Piece - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I think I've rec'd this artist/doujinshika's site before for her Houshin Engi art (since that was all I knew at the time), but I wanted to re-rec her for her Naruto, and One Piece, because I could very, very easily fall in love with her work even more than I already have. I've seen her Naruto doujinshi on Yahoo!Japan a lot and I love her lines. Her colors are pretty and her shading is good, but it's the lines of the images that are just fantastic. Her group Naruto illustrations are just amazing in the level of detail she puts into them, making them look incredible. She doesn't have as much One Piece art, but what she does have is NICE, especially her Zoro. There are a lot of really pretty Sanji's around, but it's rare to find a gorgeous Zoro (even though he is XD) and her coloring skillers are even better on these than her Naruto ones. I think she might be getting interested in FMA, too, which would just totally make me happy. (Some KakaIru, SasuNaru, ZoroxSanji.)

- One Piece - [ English Fan Art Site ] - This artist's older work might not have captured my attention, since the proportions are a little off and the colors are very bright, but her latest stuff has shown tremendous progress and kicks ass. There are a handful that especially caught my attention--the dual "dream" images of Zoro and Sanji curled up together, each dreaming a seperate dream--the art is gorgeous, but it's the dream bubbles themselves that send me into fits of laughter (which they're supposed to do XD). Also? The one of Sanji straddling Zoro, who has his arms wrapped around him? Fantastic. Really one of the best English OP artists I've seen, soooo much love from me~~ (ZoroxSanji.)

- One Piece - S*SPECTRE [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This site took me a bit to get the hang of navigating it, but the art is so worth it--the artist does these incredible lines for the characters, clean and solid and just perfectly in proportion. She also tends to use really subtle, muted colors that work so very well for the One Piece characters (lots of greens and yellows and golds, which are appropriate for Zoro and Sanji after all ^_~), but she also just draws so damned well. It doesn't hurt that she draws really cool poses and great expressions for the characters, either. I really, really loved this site and wished there were more art here. *___* (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - sea dog [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I'm really starting to fall for One Piece J-fanart sites because of sites like this one--the artist draws all the characters so incredibly well (the one of Nami and Vivi as kids together was so adorable, the one of Zoro and Sanji as kids together was so adorable, the one of Zoro surrounded by kids was--well, yes, you get where I'm going ^_~), using a soft touch with the colors that really reminds me of the original art itself in a lot of ways. It doesn't hurt that there's a nice amount of details and a fairly nice selection of mixing of characters (ie, it's not just the same two characters over and over and over--though, Zoro/Sanji is a definite theme) and the artist manages to capture the feel of One Piece. Much love. ♥ (Some Zoro/Sanji, a lot of gen.)

- One Piece/Gundam Wing - HUSH [ Korean (?) Fanart Site ] - The more I went through the Gundam Wing gallery, the more I started to think that'd I'd been here before, because some of the older GW art looked really familiar. However, the One Piece art was new to me and I don't recall having this page on my GW recs page, so, onto the list it goes! XD This artist's real strength is twofold, I think--her colors are LOVELY and she has a real knack for poses. There's one of Zoro and Sanji in the rain where they're not really even DOING anything, Zoro's just leaning towards Sanji's back and yet it was one of the most intimate illustrations I'd seen in awhile. Her Heero and Duo are much the same--they never really DO much (occasionally there's a kiss or they're laying with their arms draped across each other), but there's this lovely, lovely sense of intimacy between them. Plus, she puts them both in the St. Gabriel (I think?) uniforms, which I LOVE seeing them both in. 1x2 as schoolboys? Yum. :9 The other thing she's really good at is the way Duo and Sanji's EYES stand out; they're these vivid shades that look just amazing. The characters don't necessarily always look like themselves, but I found I didn't care because the colors were so good, the poses were so fitting, and they were just pretty! ♥ (ZoroxSanji, HeeroxDuo.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated on this site for a bit because the artist's proportions start off a little wonky, but I hung with the site for awhile and if you get about six or so illustrations in... the artist's style tightens up and you can see her start to get really good. Her coloring is fantastic, the kind of CG coloring that's bright without being gaudy, the kind that could pass for officially coloring, which is something I always appreciate. Plus, there's this illustration of Zoro and Sanji from the Groggy fight, with Sanji still having that ball thing on his head, that will NEVER STOP BEING GREAT. But she also does great single-character illustrations or great illustrations of Sanji and Zoro snarling at each other and OMG ZORO IN THE CYANDORIAN OUTFIT I LOVE THIS ARTIST FOR THAT. XD XD XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

- 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.)

- One Piece - wild*pink [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, I fell hard and fast for this site, I can tell you that. It's one of those where the artist does these illustrations that are, in some ways, light and soft, but in other ways just solid and intense enough that I walk away from the site feeling very sated. Her lines are fantastic, just making everything she draws so pretty, and you know what? I love an artist who draws a good kiss. One that doesn't tease too badly, yet still manages to make each one get me all fluttery or happy-sigh'ing or whatever. Her diary art just delights me because it doesn't really lose any of the artist's skill when she's drawing these lines and poses that are just... I guess it's hard to explain. I could point out one or two illustrations on the site and they would be nice, but it wouldn't get across what made me really love this site. It was one of those sites where I was so taken by the gallery as a whole that I couldn't stop clicking from image to image because they were all right in my wheelhouse. Because I loved the kisses, because I loved how gorgeous Sanji looked, because I loved how gorgeous Zoro looked, because it was a happy site. Sure, I love the snark as much as the next fangirl, need the snark with these two, but... sometimes I want my softer moments in fanart, sometimes I just want them to kiss and enjoy it. Plus, you know, if you can find the under gallery.... *__* Maybe not for everyone, but the site sends me over the moon. (Zoro/Sanji, a little graphic content if you can find it.)

- One Piece - Hardluck MA2 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Another site that's not going to be for everyone, as it's rather, errr, odd is a way to put it, I guess, and might raise a few eyebrows, but... I found myself won over by the really fantastic coloring that looks very professional. The artist just nails the OP anime's colors and her inking/lines are just fantastic. I mean, with a little work on her proportions on some of them, you probably could have mistaken them for official art, which is something I always appreciate. Plus, hey, smutty fanart is smutty fanart and that always gets a thumbs up from me. ^_~ And, really, that wanted poster of Zoro and Sanji? That was pretty cool. ^_^v (Zoro/Sanji, some graphic content.)

- One Piece - Ryokuoubou [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm not sure how to explain this artist's style, because it can seem very off at times, very violent or painful at times, yet... there's a certain intensity to it that isn't necessarily completely out of place with the characters. True, there's a lot of blood (or other things *cough*) usually dripping down the characters in rivulets, but that's also not necessarily out of place with the characters. There are a lot of... mm, I wouldn't necessarily call them squarer angles, but they're certainly more harsh and reminsicent of a certain style of doujinshi that I don't know how to describe, and I guess the art would best be described as... harsh, rough, and gruff? Something like that. Might not be for everyone (note: the "wet" gallery is very NOT WORK SAFE and isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but if you like Zoro/Sanji... there's probably at least a little bit of kink in you... still, be warned, it's rather rough), but I was intrigued at the very least. (Zoro/Sanji, some graphic content.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I might not have rec'd this site, simply because there's not a whole lot of art to the site, but... man, those little brightly colored chibis of Zoro and Sanji just totally and completely won me over. They're adorable in a nearly physically painful way. ♥ Plus, there's an absolutely hysterical sprite of Sanji with that little ball on his head from the Groggy brothers fight that just... I can't stop smiling/giggling every time I see it. Oh, and fox!Sanji is the CUTEST THING EVER. *coughs* But even beyond that, the artist draws really nice lines to her art (there's this b&w one of Zoro that's just fantastic) and does really fantastic things with color. And I mentioned the adorableness of the chibi!Zoro/Sanji kiss, right? Because I squeaked something terrible at that one. >_> (Some Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece/Naruto/Bleach/Death Note - 032 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, see, I have this thing about sprites, right? If I could, I would totally be adopting, like, eight bajillion of them, but I never know which ones are all right to use and which ones are off-limits. And I see a lot of sprites and they're all really cute, but this site... oh, man, I think I nearly hurt something squee'ing over the cute. All those little One Piece or Naruto or Bleach or Death Note characters... well, it definitely helps that the site is KakaIru friendly and has some of the flat-out best sprites ever, like the ones of Kakashi with his nin dogs or Yondaime trying to summon a powerful frog (I nearly spit my soda back onto the screen at that one) or Kakashi kissing Iruka with little hearts floating around or Asuma and Shikamaru playing Go or just whatever. I could stare at these sprites all day long. (Even if I do bemoan the lack of an Orihime sprite.) I love this site more than bold and italics tags can convey. (Maybe a little Zoro/Sanji or KakaIru, but it's also gen-friendly, if you avoid the one page of KakaIru sprites. >_>)

- One Piece - The Fantasy Empire [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, this is what I'm on about, this is the kind of Zoro/Sanji site that really scratches the itch I have for them and just makes it fun to be a fan of these two. The artist's style is really reminiscent (if a bit more traditionally pretty) of the manga's art, that sense of clean lines and nice details and the sense of... well, I hate to call it "violence", but I suppose that's what it is. Whether directed at each other or whether they're fighting side by side, these are guys of action and movement and fight and that really comes through in the art here, I think. Even when they're grinning like hell or when they're kissing or even just standing around and posing, they retain that sense. Perhaps softer than the manga itself, but it's the kind that hits my buttons just right--plus, I really like the artist's coloring, she does an AWESOME Sanji, every once in awhile the artist just NAILS the One Piece feel, and there's a little bit of smut if you can find it~~ ♥ I really can't ask for more. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I can already tell you, even before I get more than half a sentence into this rec, that it's going to be a bad rec because I adore this site in the kind of way that makes it hard for me to describe. The colors are light and breezy, the lines are clean and fine, with elegant arcs, and this gives the art the sense of just... they're light-hearted, but they're not shoujo, I guess is the way to put it? At any rate, I find them to be beautiful because this is my type of art. This reference is going to make sense to, like, one person other than me, most likely, but when I look at this artist, I see what I liked so much about Hashiba Labs' doujinshi (for the Yoroiden Samurai Troopers series). Zoro and Sanji look really good and the artist has this amazing underlying lineart and her coloring is so pretty and soft, so when you add it all together... *happy, happy sight* And I don't mean to imply that the art is without its impact, because there are illustrations of a battered Sanji in mid-battle or Zoro in the middle of battle or angsty rain images or really fun action-y stuff with the Skypiea clothes or any number of other really cool illustrations. The artist has this one of Sanji where he's sitting down, wearing a loose white shirt and jeans, elbow propped up against his knee to rest his head in his hand, quiet look on his face as he smokes and it's just... it's one of those most gorgeous, beautiful things I've ever seen. Or he'll be in a nice, cleanly pressed suit somewhere and... ...okay, clearly, I'm enthralled with this site. I didn't want it to end, because each illustration felt like that, just... amazing art. I'm in love. ♥__♥ THIS is my style of art, more than ANYTHING else, I think. ....I know I say that a lot, but I mean it! Note: Make sure to crawl all over the site, there's some really good stuff in the weekly section, especially the Davy Back Fight-era stuff. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - guru guru room [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I swear, some days, the One Piece fandom spoils me so much with all the beautiful, cool Zoro/Sanji fanart there is to find out there. And it seems like I could look for days and days and not find all of the fanart that just... captures the sense of adventure and style Oda-sensei puts into the pages of the manga. And that's one of the first things that jumped out at me with this site, that the style really feels like One Piece, right down to the slight craziness of the illustrations, but still that sense of fun. Not to mention the art is really kinda pretty--the artist puts a lot of details into her current stuff (her Halloween Z&S one looks great! and the two bathtub illustrations are just chock-full of details in every little cranny of them, which really helps further that sense of feeling like One Piece) and her lines are really fantastic (they LOOK like Zoro and Sanji, right down to the way they grin like maniacs) and the colors are beautiful. Plus, I admit, I melted at the ghostly Kuina hovering over Zoro to place a halo on his head while the wound across his chest is the only color in the image, because it should have been cheesy, but wound up making my fangirl heart turn over for the ache of it. And, oh, Sanji looks perfect in damn near every illustration he's in and there's smut! I love smut. So much. Especially when it's good smut. ♥ ♥ ♥ (Zoro/Sanji, some graphic content that's pretty clearly marked.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another one of those sites that does really well with Zoro and Sanji's characters, in that sense that there's a lot of detail, really nices lines and colors, and every so often (especially with the Sanji illustrations--one of the birthday ones, where he's asleep with all this crap piled around him looks terrific), there would be an image that just nails the feel/style of Oda-sensei's manga. Plus! There are a lot of comics that also do a terrific job of feeling like One Piece, of keeping the characters with that shounen edge that One Piece has while still making the characters attractive and just... FUN. Very solid, nice site. <3 (Sanji/Zoro.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated a lot over this site initially, until I got to the treasure section and just absolutely cooed over every illustration, because they were SO EFFING CUTE. I mean, Zeff dragging kiddy!Sanji off to bed? IT DOES NOT GET CUTER THAN THAT. But it's also Shanks squirting Ben with a watergun while they're in the bathtub or Zeff and kiddy!Sanji fishing together or Ace and Luffy in the rain together and sleeping or a lot of other ones. So, I definitely recommend the site for that section and, hell, I liked the main gallery, too--that one of shirtless Sanji in bed drinking out of a tea cup? PRETTY. <3 (A little bit Zoro/Sanji if you squint, but mostly gen.)

- One Piece - eplp [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - *shimmers* Oh, my god, I love this site, how have I not found it earlier? The art is fantastic, there are a zillion different poses and outfits and concepts in the gallery, but each one of them has these great sharp lines and a nice, almost earthy-toned sense of color, really solid proportions, blah, blah, blah, all that faux-art-critique stuff. Mostly, though, it's that the artist reminds me of the feel of One Piece somehow, but then proceeds to ramp up the sorta-almost-but-not-quite-nice!Zoro/Sanji that just gets to me. The two of them lying in bed together with Zoro out cold or a hand ruffling hair as they pass by late at night or flopped into the same hammock together or Sanji apparently having dragged Zoro along for food shopping or leaning over to kiss Sanji while he's sitting on a chair or a million other little poses like that? Different clothes just about each time, really nice art on their features and hair and all that? I just go for that kind of stuff. It just gets to me and I flip out happily over it. Loved this site. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - O. N. I. [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I have such a great fondness for any site that does a lot of good oekaki with a wide variety of characters--like, when I can see Zoro and Sanji and Luffy and the rest frequently, but characters like Smoker or Captain Kuro or I can see an adorable fanart of Zoro and Chopper grinning like hell or one of Sanji drawing curly eyebrows and chin hair on Zoro while he sleeps or even Zoro and Nami snarking at each other? I love that kind of site. Plus, the artist does a good job with her illustrations, they're very obviously oekaki style, but I've kinda grown fond of that these days, and her colors are the light and pretty kind without being pastel. But. Well. Yes. There's a lot of Zoro-and-Sanji illustrations and a faint of slash hint to the website, so. Well. I would be won over, wouldn't I? Anyway. There's also a lot of regular (non-oekaki) art that has some pretty good lines, a ton of art, and I found myself liking more than I clicked right on past, which is really all I can ask for from a site. ^_~ (Not Zoro/Sanji, but I'm probably going to stick it in that catagory anyway.)

- One Piece - Spy Daisaku [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, see, I was won over with this site because it has fox-eared!Sanji licking tiger!Zoro's face. Dude. Like I wasn't going to be all <3<3<3 over that. XD But it's also that the site has some interesting art tucked away and that the artist's more recent stuff is getting to be pretty good. There's this really neat one of Zoro on horseback child Sanji wrapped up in his cloak in the winter, there are another couple of Sanji with fox ears and tail, this time as a semi-chibi, glomping onto businessman!Zoro that's really kind of adorable, and, oh, there's one of Sanji lying back, wearing glasses and smiling, that's really kind of pretty. So there were just enough illustrations on the site that I was won over and had to rec it. :D (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - today [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is a site that's going to be a lot like some of the other Zoro/Sanji sites in that it's not going to be for everyone and even I know it's kinda sappy and the colors are bright and edging into pastels often times, but I wind up just completely NOT CARING because the art makes me flutter and sparkle so much. They're so pretty while still being recognizably in that One Piest sort of style--the colors are light and airy, the expressions and grins on their faces just so very OP-like, but it's also the beautiful intimacy in some (the kiss illustration with them in white shirts and black pants? So. Pretty. Or the one where Sanji's in this gorgeous black outfit or they're wearing matching pants or students!Zoro and Sanji in the grass reading books or fox!Sanji and tiger!Zoro and some really fantastic single-character illustrations) or the batshit fun in others. I just... I go for this sort of art, especially when you get illustrations like the one where Zoro's got an arm around Sanji's shoulders, his face resting against Sanji's hair and I just... SHUT UP, IT'S PRETTY AND THE COLORS ARE SOFT AND I LIKE IT. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - AJIMI-SCO [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Ooh, another site where I just sort of like the art, even if I have trouble spelling out why. The colors are good, the proportions and lines are nice, and there are a lot of individual illustrations that amused me or made me coo. The artist is especially good at drawing Sanji, there are a handful of illustrations that just look really awesome--like the one of him lighting up a cigarette in the middle of the snow or when he's perched on a cranky Zoro's shoulders to reach up into a tree above his head or when he's decorating a cake with strawberries, etc. So I really kinda liked the art here, it was one of those sites that made me happy to go through it, gave me my fix, and had a couple of really pretty illustrations. I can't ask for more than that. ^_~ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - sea dog [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I really kind of enjoyed this site--I mean, yeah, I knew I was probably gonna be fond of it when I saw the chibi fox and tiger illustrations (because, damn, I'm weak to that kind of stuff), but it's not just the Zoro/Sanji that made me sparkle. There were about three illustrations of the entire Going Merry crew as children that were absolutely ADORABLE. And. Well. Yes. The ones of Zoro and Sanji watching fireworks or as kids watching a dragonfly or Nami and Vivi as kids looking at a map or even some of the kinda neat oekaki illustrations were all nice, too. <3 The artist has kind of a rough style, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of inking, but the more I went through the gallery, the more the sketch-like style really seemed to work for the artist. So, another fun site that I liked. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - O-child [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I worked my way backwards from the most current illustration on this site to the older ones and by the time I got to the second Zoro/Sanji illustration, I was just sold on this site. The artist, when she's on her game, draws art that is remarkably talented, that nails the style of One Piece and has some of the cleanest, prettiest lines in the OP fanart fandom that I've seen. Or at least it's something like that, whatever it is, it makes me all *___* over her art when she gets it right--that one of Zoro and Sanji in neatly pressed shirts and vests? So. Shiny. But it's also her individual illustrations that are a lot of fun--the first one of Sanji in the purple shirt leaning against the wall? So. Pretty. Oh, and the one with Zoro wearing an eyepatch and Sanji in the bandana? So much fun. I really wish there were more from this artist, because her galleries would be so much fun to go through. As it is, I'm going to try to keep an eye on this site for the future. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sat on the fence with this site for awhile until I was won over by a couple of things--one, I tend to like sites that have a lot of art, that the more I go through the gallery, the more I get a feel for the artist's style and they're creative about it. Second, I really am a sucker for Chinese style clothing or fantasty-style clothing, which is what really made me pay attention to this site--Zoro with long hair pulled back in a ponytail with fantasty-style clothes? Or Sanji in these huge multi-colored robes fighting? Or an illustration from the Davy Back fights where Sanji's wearing the ball-hat, they're beat-up and Zoro's actually kissing him? These are the things that make me flutter around the room happily. The site might not appeal to a person at first, but if you like the pairing, I'd suggest keep at it, because there's a point somewhere in the middle that... I just started to get really impressed with the sheer level of detail the artist puts into the costumes she draws on the characters. There are so many different ones and she's got a good sense for proportion and, hell, I even grew to really like the color style she uses. I really enjoyed this site. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - maro maro maron [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is going to be another one of those sites that I both sit on the fence about for awhile and that it's not going to be for everyone, but that I wanted to rec it because there are five or six illustrations that made the site worth it for me. I think I officially knew I ♥'d this site when I came across the illustration of Zoro and Sanji shirtless, with unwrapped condoms between their teeth with the filename "gomu2.jpg" and promptly cracked right the hell up. Best filename ever. XD But I also liked the one of them lying in the grass together or the wet!Zoro/Sanji in the water and they're both wearing shorts and there's even a ura gallery. It took me forever to find it, but it wasn't bad and just... the whole site has just enough art on it that I really liked, I liked the colors the artist used (those pretty, soft, light colors that I enjoy so much) that I felt the need to rec it. :D (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - SillyGirl [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The art of this site isn't always fantastic, but... the artist draws a very solid Sanji and is really good with the proportions, lines, and details. When she draws new outfits on the characters, they're often very nicely detailed or the poses look just fantastic, very much in that slouch or casual-but-ready-to-fight body language the One Piece characters have. The other thing that's really good is that her coloring looks very nice and that there are a lot of illustrations that are just fun--the one of kitsune!Sanji dressed up like one of the Foxy Pirates, with the caption Foxy Fox on it that utterly cracked me up, given the J-fen's penchent for drawing fox!Sanji a lot. Just... a very good, solid sight that totally gave me my fix this morning. :D (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - Day and Night [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites that I liked simply because I have a bit of a weakness for that art style that's almost like sketches, where there's a good selection of characters on the site, and I like the lighter colors used. Well, and the ZoSan didn't hurt, either. Some of them aren't going to be to everyone's tastes, but every so often there's an image of them fighting or being dorks or clutching at each other (in a way that should scream at me for being OOC and yet I'm all ♥ over it because of the intensity that's somehow present) that'll just impress the hell out of me. Also, the kissing is really kind of HOT. And there's a lot of creativity (I enjoyed the jungle image a little too much, I think XD), making it one of those sites that just slowly won me over more and more. <3 (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - Mu-ran Ru-jyu [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - To be honest, I waffled on this site and almost gave up, I'm not that fond of her ZoSan art (with a few exceptions in her more recent work), because she starts out rather rough. But her single character stuff? Nice. Her Sanji illustrations are particularily good, she has this series of him as a fox and this totally hit the right kink for me, especially with her pretty, delicate lines and the light, almost airy colors. Also, he's still mostly adult while in fox form, yet not looking totally ridiculous (just really pretty ♥) and I don't see that all that often, even given how much fox!Sanji fanart there is. I might suggest starting with her more recent work (and that's the stuff that makes me really look forward to more of her work) and working backwards from there, giving special attention tothe Sanji art. It's definitely worth a look, I think. Oh and be sure to hit up the gift section, there's some really cute images there, too. XD (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - WE [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Yet another site where I found that the ZoSan fanart didn't hit me nearly as hard as the Sanji-only art did. Not to say it was bad, there were several pieces that made me (a fan of the pairing, of course) coo or sparkle over the pretty... the one where Sanji was watering Zoro's head like a plant was particularily amusing. But it's when you get a bit into the Sanji gallery that you notice the artist is much better at drawing him and really does a bang-up job with several of them. Little cleaner!Sanji with the mop and bucket made me wriggle around at the cute every time for some reason I couldn't put my finger on, Sanji lounging about on the couch was nice, even fox!Sanji was really cute/adorable here. And, hell, I think the site was worth drunk!everyone sleeping on Sanji on the floor all by itself. XD It probably helps if you're a fan of the pairing or if you stick just to the Sanji art, but I liked this site well enough to recommend it freely. :D (Zoro/Sanji, some gen.)

- 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 - GURUGURU CAFE [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There are times when I think I've seen all the worthwhile ZoSan sites, everything else isn't my cup of tea or I've already been there several times. And, hell, I'm not even sure that I haven't already been here, after awhile all the OP fanart starts to remind you of everything else. But! Bright, soft colors! Pretty Sanji! ZoSan fanart! I am weak to these things and they make me happy. The portrayal of Sanji might not be everyone's favorite (a lot of people get touchy about the character), but everything certainly is pretty. Along with sites like wild*pink, this artist uses those light, airy, occasionally pastel colors really well and you can feel how much affection for Sanji's character the artist has. Frequently, she draws him in interesting modern-day clothing or in really hot not-quite-slouching poses that I have such affection for. ....also, there may be really pretty tentacle almost-porn and that's awesome. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - DEAR JUNK [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I sat and thought about this site for awhile, I wasn't sure I wanted to rec it. A lot of the art isn't quite my thing... but the further I got into the site, the more there was a growing handful of illustrations I did really like. The artist's style can be really rough at times, it's when she makes this style work for her that her art is at its best, I think. There's an intensity that I associate with her style, so maybe that's why I'm softer towards it... or maybe I just can feel the affection she has for Sanji's character and the ZoSan pairing. also didn't hurt that the one of Luffy/Nami in formal clothes with Nami in this really slinky red dress slit up her thigh to show her weapon was really kind of hot. (Zoro/Sanji, occasional not-work-safe content.)

- One Piece - saien oukoku [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There is something about this style that I just like in a way I can't express. It's something about the light colors and the messy hair and the tons of strands you can see and the airy feeling to it all. Maybe I'm just easier on sites that have ZoSan content, but there really is something about this style that I have such fun with. The kissing images or just leaning against each other or walking somewhere or the cute chibi Sanji with the decorated cake and his eyes are so blue and there are actually tons of details in so many of the images... it just makes me feel all happy and stuff. Even the comics have the same cute, light style even while Zoro and Sanji are kissing with real intensity or growling in each other's faces. And. Just. I know it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea (Sanji is definitely uke here, you know?) but I swear there's something in the ZoSan waters of the fandom because I look at that multi-page comic and go, "Holy crap, that's some gorgeous detail work in those later pages. Sanji's hair is awesome. Their expressions are fantastic! ....and that's hot. :9" The color comics are even prettier, omg. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji, occasional not-safe-for-work content.)

- 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.)

- One Piece - 2nd Punk [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Just from the banner alone, I knew I'd probably going to be recommending this site. But I was a little unsure when I clicked on the first image, not bad, but not quite blowing me away, either. Then I clicked a few more links into the gallery and... okay, it's still kind of hit or miss, but there are a few that are just kind of fantastic. Sanji all tied up and bloody on the floor? Should not be that hot, but he is. There's fanservice from just about all of the characters, really, including one of Nami in short shorts and a;lsdkfjasl;kj bless this artist, seriously. XD I'm sort of iffy on the artist's Zoro, but her Sanji is really cool, there's something really polished or smooth about the art with his character and you can tell that he's probably her favorite. But! I had fun all over this site and I only wish there were more art here. <3 (Some Zoro/Sanji, some gen.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist took me a bit to warm up to, but I eventually got there because the art is really kind of interesting. I use that word a lot, I suppose, but I do mean it. There's something... well, it's not precisely like the canon style, but it feels like it has that OP spirit to it, there's a lot of really intriguing stylization to the ZoSan images. There are even a handful of group illustrations that just really neat to look at and I love the frequently used pastel colors and even the oekaki illustrations are fun to look at! For all that this is sort of a bland rec, I really did enjoy the hell out of this site. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji.)

- One Piece - [ English Fanart Site ] - I don't even remember how I stumbled over this site now, possibly through my attention being attracted here by the Zoro/Sanji art, but I really stayed just as much for the gen stuff. Of course, don't get me wrong, the ZoSan stuff is really awesome, too, the artist has a solid style that's reminscent of canon and captures the feel of a slightly rough edge that Oda has to his art, but is all the more awesome for it. I love that the artist seems like she could either be more like the manga style or like the anime style, really getting the feel of Oda's art down and also able to nail the anime cel-style coloring and the poses are perfect and just. a;lsdfkjal;skjalsjk her ZoSan fanart kind of makes me fall in love with them all over again. *__* (Some Zoro/Sanji, some gen.)

- 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 - [ English Fanart Site ] - This is one of those artists who was just, like, made for me because the art hits me where I live so hard. Zoro/Nami plus Zoro/Sanji plus the occasional bit of Luffy/Nami, all done in a style that's reminiscent of the manga, but with brighter, shinier colors? Sometimes I love fandom a lot. I actually originally came here for the Zoro/Sanji art (and, boy, do I ever love this image of them--probably NSFW on that one, btw) but then noticed the artist also had some really really good art of Zoro/Nami as well, which is still totally that ship I just can't shake off, no matter how long I'm a fan of One Piece. Because it's a mix of sweeter moments with them and then stuff like Zoro just carting her off and it's all designed to make me weak. I love the artist's bright, warm colors as well, it's such a treat to go through each and every image ♥ (Zoro/Nami, Zoro/Sanji, a little other.)

- One Piece - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites that's kinda clearly built for meeeeee! Despite that I was actually looking for Ace art this morning, I stumbled over this Zoro-centric site and, well, who am I to resist? There's a ton of art here and the artist does a good job of capturing the style of the manga, yet putting Zoro in a ton of different situations... actually, no, that's pretty Oda-like, considering all the splash covers he's done. But there's art of Zoro by himself, Zoro with his swords, the occasional image of him with Nami or Luffy or OMG ZORO AND CHOPPER CHRISTMAS CUTENESS OH I JUST ABOUT MELTED and then there's a fair amount of Zoro/Sanji art as well. There's a good amount of group art as well and some of it is just really fun adventure type art and other images are totally cracked out Christmas stuff that's perfect for OP, too. I do find that I wished the images had been a little bigger, but that's only 'cause they're so much fun. ♥ (This is mostly a gen site, but there's some Zoro/Sanji if you want to see it that way.)

  - One Piece - [ Pixiv Account ] - And, well, who am I to let a One Piece recs post go by without throwing some Zoro/Sanji art in there as well? Not that I really intended to, but then I stumbled over a completely adorable Halloween chibis image, followed the image back, discovered more hilarious chibi Halloween art and nicely done post-time-skip art and ZoSan porn. So, you know, I was pretty much instantly sold. Not that the artist isn't talented, she does some really nice colors, I love the bright, almost dreamy feel or the sunshiney feel that they often have, I love how you can totally feel the artist's love for Sanji even aside from him being the majority of the focus, or when she does Sanji resting under a sakura tree she has this... certain charm to it that I'm just all over. And I love that feeling, that squeeful feeling I have when I look at Zoro slinging Sanji over his shoulder like a bag of rice (totally my favorite way of carrying another person), it's such a fun time to be in the ZoSan fandom when I come across artists like this. (Zoro/Sanji, some NSFW, some gen.)

  - One Piece - [ Pixiv Account ] - After the previous recommendation, I told myself that I was going to go do something else for awhile, since I'd just done 10 recs in a row and needed a break. But I had just one more tab to clear out of my browser first... and it was a fun Halloween vampire!Zoro image that I thought had some really good lineart to it. Okay, I'll just quick check out the gallery, real fast. And then the artist gave me Sadie-chan-style!Sanji and okay. See. One Piece fandom has done this thing to me where I fucking love stuff like this now. Especially when it's well-drawn! So, I was all over the image. And then the artist gave me post-time-skip walking along and more hilarity with ZoSan and then Zoro pushing Sanji down who is wrapping his legs around Zoro and, why, thank you, yes, that was very nice of you, Pixiv! Plus, there's no way in which this pirate!Zoro/Sanji image is not completely fucking awesome. Plus, to top it all of, this image of VOCALOID!Zoro is the funniest goddamned thing I've seen just about ever. The artist combines solid art style and either awesome or hilarious or hot concepts for the image and just. Makes me fall in love all over again. ♥ (Zoro/Sanji. Occasional vague NSFW art.)
