- Prince of Tennis - Nice Trip [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I've rec'd this artist before for her Hikago art (*hearts* Ogata-sensei~!), but that was back before I liked Prince of Tennis, so it's getting rec'd again. I really am amazed some days at the sheer amount of good artists out there for these two series (PoT and Hikago) and this site is no exception. The single character illustrations tend to be the best, but how could I not just absolutely love the TezukaFuji and MomoRyo illustrations? The second TezukaFuji (from the bottom up) is just... I fucking love that one. *_* The artist has a lot of skill with the little details of the illustrations, and does some really nice shading (as far as I can tell, mind) and I just love the way she draws their hair--I know that's so fangirly, but I don't caaaaaaare~. ^_~ Good, good, good site. (Li'l bit TezukaFuji, MomoRyo.)

- Prince of Tennis - Dawn [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Ooh, lookit the pretty art. +_+ The older illustrations have a very CG-y feel to them, but they're still gorgeous and I love the colors and the way the artist does the eyes. There's an absolutely gorgeous, oddly enough, illustration of Sakuno and Tomoko that I just adored. There are a few MomoRyo illustrations that I just love, the second of which has Momo-chan in a t-shirt that looks amazing, though, they all make me... just... happy~ *floats* But the one of Nanjiroh and Ryoma probably has to be my favorite, simply because I just don't see that nearly enough. (No single pairing theme, lots of couples, but MomoRyo shows up a lot.)

- Prince of Tennis - Project X Peke [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This artist doesn't necessarily draw my absolute favorite style, but... there are two things that make me really like the site. Well, three things. XD One, the artist likes all the traditional pairings (TezukaFuji, OishiEiji, InuiKaidoh, MomoRyo) and I always smile to see artists like that. Two, there's this one illustration of Tezuka and Fuji holding each other's faces that's just lovely and all of the illustrations really capture the feeling of the pairing. And, three, SPRITES! EEEEE! SO CUTE! Seriously, I love sprites. Especially cutecutecute ones. So this was one of those sites that I was just happy to see. =^_^= (TezukaFuji, some OishiEiji, InuiKaidoh, MomoRyo.)

- Prince of Tennis - Bips-M [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Whee! I was just thinking that I didn't see nearly enough MomoRyo for my taste, so it's wonderful to stumble across an artist/site that draws them to be so darned cute! The artist uses a CG-y style, but it works for the art, it makes the pictures very cute, and she has a solid sense for colors. What makes me like the art, though, is that you can tell the artist really seems to like the pairing, seemed to capture that sense of fun I associate with these characters. I liked the site. ^_^v (MomoRyo.)

- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Sometimes, when I go back to a site, just to see if they've updated, I discover an entirely new section on the site that I'd never seen before, and that's what happened with this site. I'd seen the art before and it was cute, but I hadn't rec'd it (I don't think), but when I went back this afternoon, I found my way into the adult section and... WHEE! SMUTTY GAMES! *ahem* I spent much, much time playing those games, and amused myself with them--the first thing I said to everyone I was chatting with was, "YAY! I win! Naked Fuji! *takes screen capture* XD" There's also TezukaFuji smut and MomoRyo smutty game and just, oh, I had a marvelous time. *sparkles* (TezukaFuji, MomoRyo, some graphic content.)

- Prince of Tennis - porcupine [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I admit, I wasn't going to rec this site at first, because there are some details that are off (the lips look quite odd and the artist takes awhile to strengthen up her lineart) and it started out shakey. So what changed my mind? Well, three things. One, the colors she uses are nice, very pretty and soft, very fitting for the characters. Two, the art really strengthens up as she goes along, so much so that I was shoving a ton of the images at friends whom I know liked Golden Pair art. Plus, one of the cutest MomoRyo illustrations I've ever seen on this site. And, three, the real reason smut! Nothing too graphic, but a lot of Eiji in frilly underthings or artfully concealed nudity or Eiji wearing only a pale pink apron as Oishi pushes him up against the wall to have his way with him. I love that. >:D It also doesn't hurt that the artist draws several of my favorite pairings--OishiEiji, MomoRyo, and TezukaFuji. *sparkle*sparkle* This is one of those sites that made me just... happy, even if I could understand why not everyone would like it. (OishiEiji, some MomoRyo, TezukaFuji.)

- Prince of Tennis/Detective Conan - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - The first thing to catch my attention on this site was the fabulous top illustration of Momo and Ryoma; then, after going through the gallery, I continued to fall more and more in love with their MomoRyo, since they do some of the best art I've seen for the pairing. There's far too little MomoRyo out there, so it's nice to find an artist that's really good like this (Ryoma's eyes are a little odd, but I'm completely in love with the lines and colors--her shading and strong use of CG are really professional-level, in my opinion) and to scratch that itch I needed. Plus, hey, any site that lets me scratch a bunch of odd pairings off my list (Nanjiroh/Akutsu!? BWAH. ♥♥) As for the Detective Conan fanart... I really can't comment too much, given that I really don't know the characters at all, just that I wanted to shove the site up into a DC section since I want to eventually have a section for them. At any rate, the art is very pretty, probably even moreso than the Tenipuri stuff. The lines and colors look a bit softer here, less CG-ish and a bit more like they were hand-drawn. The details continue to be fabulous and a couple of the illustrations are just flat-out amazing. (Mostly MomoRyo, lots of other yaoi, though.)

- Prince of Tennis/Full Metal Alchemist - Easy Slope [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It's really kind of rare these days that I find Tenipuri sites I like, not just because I don't look for them as often, but because I've seen so much at this point. However, it makes it worthwhile to keep hunting high and low when I find sites like this because OMG SQUEE MOMORYO FANART! I mean, yes, the artist does a couple of absolutely lovely TezukaFuji illustrations (and a couple of wibble-inducing chibi ones for them), she does some lovely Hyoutei CG stuff (her Atobe especially looks beautiful), she does these fantastic Hiyoshi/Gakuto illustrations, but, when everything's said and done, it's her MomoRyo that put me over the edge. Because the comic where Ryoma (I think?) kisses Momo on the cheek? LOVE. The chibis and the poster-like illustrations? MORE LOVE. The artist really does a fantastic job with the CG style she uses and I LOVE the way her illustrations all look like they could be posters, it's a fantastic way to do her art. Plus, the kitty comics are quite possibly the cutest things ever. *coughs* Anyway. Yes. The FMA art is lovely as well--the artist did these fantastic illustrations of Al (both in human form as a kid and in his suit of armor), she did a really nice group illustration, and there's an amazing one of Hawkeye and Al (not a pairing, mind), in that same strong CG-coloring style. I *heart*. (MomoRyo, a little Tezuka/Fuji, but it's mostly gen/other and no FMA pairings.)

- Prince of Tennis/Naruto - Lovely Place [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There are two things that attract me to this site--the not-quite-chibi illustrations of pretty much every major team in the series were adorable. They're so cute and every one just gets more and more adorable and there's a ton of them and then there's the little winter!Seigaku one where they're all dressed up in warm clothes and walking together and all the traditional couples and I just spaz from the cute. It helps that I'm really fond of the traditional pairings (TezuFuji, InuKai, OishiEiji, MomoRyo, etc.), but I really think these are some of the most adorable images I've seen even aside from that. The artist really knows how to draw the characters well without stepping too far over the cute line and into saccharine. The other thing is that I was really impressed by the artist's Naruto fanart, which is nicely polished and detailed. There's not nearly as much of it on the site as there is Tenipuri art, but the Gaara illustration alone makes the visit worthwhile. Well, no. Gaara and the really kickass one of ANBU!(?) Sasuke. And Naruto with the spiral on his stomach. And Hokage!Naruto with ANBU!Sasuke. *__* Such pretty colors, too. (Some implication of TezuFuji, OishiEiji, InuKai, MomoRyo, ToriShishi, AkutsuDan, OshiAto, other popular Hyoutei pairings. Worth a visit for both Seigaku and Hyoutei fans.)
