- Prince of Tennis - Ultimate Blue [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I am only starting to get into Prince of Tennis fanart, and I'm really glad that this was one of my first sites, because it's exactly what I look for when searching Japanese sites, exactly what addicts me and keeps me coming back for more. There are a handful of illustrations in these galleries that are just gorgeous--everything is done with a lot of skill and is very pretty, but there are a few (like the very first one of Tezuka and Fuji and the ones of Inui and Ryoma) that are beautiful. Very soft and pretty, but still maintaining that shounen feel that I've come to like about PoT so much. The icon section is full of incredibly cute little icons and I am so tempted to snatch one of them up to use. *hearts* Just... great site. (Primarily TezukaFuji, with some FujiEiji and single-character art mixed in.)


- Hikaru no Go/Naruto/Prince of Tennis/Star Ocean/Get Backers - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is another one of those sites that Isa pointed out to me, and despite it not being my usual Hikago pairings, it's really friggin' cute. Plus a lot of art tucked away here. Good colors, good drawings, and lots of cute. Very solid site. But what I really like is that there's a ton of different series here and the little sprites are freakishly cute--the Star Ocean section has some the cutest Leon illustrations I've ever seen, too. XD And, like, I was happy to see Kaga show up a few times in the Hikaru no Go section and I don't think I've ever seen Get Backers fanart before.... (KakaNaru, EijiRyoma, Claude/Ashton, Hikaru/Waya, Ban/Ginji)


- Prince of Tennis - KinKan Web [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - *sigh* Another site I wasn't going to rec until I kept going through the gallery and found myself really quite liking several illustrations. The art is a little on the skinny-stick-spider-freak side for me, but that often smooths out to create some lovely illustrations. There's an illustration of Fuji blowing bubbles that's just adorable, Tezuka with messy hair that turns me into a swooning fangirl, a terribly, terribly sweet one of Fuji and his brother, and enough TezukaFuji to make me a happy fangirl, too. ^_~ At any rate, I had much fun here. (Some TezukaFuji, li'l bit FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - FPD [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I was quite fond of the way this artist drew Tezuka, but I was a little hesitant to rec the site because of the Tezuka/Inui. It doesn't really bother me, it's just not my thing. But there was some pretty TezukaFuji, so I was happy to continue going through the gallery and then when I saw the illustration of Fuji lifting a lock of Tezuka's hair to his lips... I was just done for by the beautiful, subtle, intense, gentle look on Fuji's face. This is one of my favorite Fuji illustrators now--they really capture his subtle strength while at the same time being soft and gentle... and those eyes.... *_* And! Tezuka in the snow! Eee! *hearts* The style has a feeling that's almost reminicent of paintings rather than fanart or CG work, something very heartwarming and that makes me love those gorgeous TezukaFuji or Tezuka-only illustrations. Plus... I really like their illustrations of Inui, he looks fantastic. (TezukaFuji, some TezukaInui.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Ahhh, it's been awhile since I went hunting for PoT fanart, but Hana put me in the mood for this this morning and I just absolute, utterly fell in love with the handful of TezukaFuji illustrations on the site--they're gorgeous, full of that wonderful intensity between the two characters, and just made me sparkle so damn much. But the site also has a lot of other random pairings/characters as well (I was especially fond of the MomoRyo one and I'm developing a secret sort of fondness for Mizuki/Yuuta. Don't ask me why, I don't know. Oooh~! And the Christmas one! I loved the Christmas one! *_* And a gorgoues one of Tomo and Sakuno together. *_*), all just darling and wonderful. I also loved that if you scrolled down on the window, there was often times an extra background illustration companion to the main one and they never failed to make me smile or giggle. (Some shounen ai hints, various pairings.)


- Prince of Tennis - Orange*ade [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This site does a beautiful Inui and an absolutely gorgeous Tezuka. While InuiRyoma and TezukaRyoma aren't really my pairings, it's sites like this one that make me go through the galleries and drool anyway, because they're just so damn gorgeous. And then you get to the single-character-illustrations and just.... *____* There are some in there that I just fawn over they're so beautiful. More gorgeous Tezuka and beautiful Inui. And! *sparkles* A Tezuka/Keigo illustration that I just adored to pieces (and let me know that their birthdays are within three days of each other XD) and, oooh, there was a wonderful Momo one on the site... anway, really, really wonderful art. ^_^v (InuiRyoma, little bit TezukaRyoma.)


- Prince of Tennis - CATHEXIS [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Okay, the Tezuka/Ryoma illustrations on this site are pretty, there are even a couple I thought were downright lovely, but it was when I hit the Hyotei-centric section of the site that I knew I was going to have to rec it. After going through enough fanart sites, especially Hyotei-centric ones, I've developed a fondness for Jiroh/Oshitari (either way, I don't care ^_^) and this site has some lovely JirohOshitari. Lovely colors, nice poses, a good selection of art, and Jiroh looks gorgeous. *_* I be verrrry happy. Plus! A handful of MomoKamio illustrations! COOL! XD (TezukaRyoma, JirohOshitari, li'l bit MomoKamio and KeigoOshitari. ....and if you keep looking... HYOTEIxOshitari. XD)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Eeee! Such cute CG work! Not, like, overly cutesy, but drawing the characters to be just adorable and the colors soft enough that the CG style looks very, very pretty, and the shading is amazing. I just... love the way this artist draws Tezuka and the way she draws Eiji, too, very... mm, I'm having trouble finding the words, but it's really nice. There's also a good selection, some really cool poses (That Men in Black one? Cool. *_* And Inui/Mizuki? COOL! XD) (Lotsa Inui-centric pairings, but no single theme.)


- Prince of Tennis - Trio Oratorio [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Awww, no OishiEiji love? ;_; But I can't help rec'ing this site, because the artist does such a cute Eiji! The colors are sharp and bright without being gaudy and they do some really nice CG work--the Eiji illustrations are the highlight of the site and you can tell the artist really loves him a lot. There are also some really neat single-character illustrations (like a gorgeous one of Fuji) and a couple of Seigaku-group illustrations that I just absolutely love, with the whole team feeling they capture. So, yeah, fun site with a very cute Eiji and some really neat Hyotei illustrations (I especially liked the ones of Jiroh). ^_^v (Some light EijiRyoma, FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - Sky Shark [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Oh, wow, what beautiful CG art. *_* They almost... glow and are just absolutely beautiful and adorable and darling. There's this absolutely gorgeous one of the three Fuji siblings, gorgeous chibi-Tezuka, some beautiful TezukaFuji, an adorable MomoRyo, and on and on and on. I'm just... so impressed by how well this artist draws with the CG style, the eyes and hair (especially the shading on the hair *___*) are just fantastic. I love this site. *_* (Some TezukaFuji, FujiRyoma, lots of common pairings, no particular single theme.)


- Prince of Tennis - Lyrical Park [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Such soft, pretty, delicate lines and edges to these characters, it just makes me go *___* happily. This is yet another artist who really captures the feeling of the pairings she's drawing, the dynamics of each one (or at least the TezukaFuji one and we all know that's the one I really care about ^_~) and does it with such lovely colors. The way the artist draws Fuji is one of my favorites, where he looks almost kind of delicate, but with a strength that's amazing. And her Tezuka is gorgeous and I drool happily over him. *___* (TezukaFuji, some InuiFuji and FujiTaka.)


- Prince of Tennis - ttt [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I... am a sucker for TezukaFuji fanart that's both cute and has that subtle sort of intensity that I associate with the characters/pairing and this site was pushing all the right buttons for me. One of the things that attracted me to J-fanart in the first place that so many of the artists could capture those things about the characters, just using pictures and colors, and... yeah, this site is another one of those that does that. Plus! CHIBIS IN LOVE! *sparkles* There's this absolutely, positively adorable comic on the site that has chibi-Tezuka and chibi-Fuji and it just made me melt from the cuteness. =^_^= (TezukaFuji-centric, some FujiOther.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I really do adore it when an artist can do something a little different from the usual (not that I don't just crave the usual gorgeous fanart out there *_*) like the way this artist has done her illustrations in a sort of painting style. (Though, I'm not sure if they'd be more oil paint or watercolors paint.) Just the feeling the pictures evoke because of that makes me sparkle madly over them--plus, there's this gorgeous one of Tezuka and Fuji that just makes me swoon. =^_^= Lovely colors, lovely style, really wonderful poses/designs of them, etc. Very, very nice site. ^_^ (Some TezukaFuji, TezukaRyoma, FujiEiji, maybe a few other gently shounen ai pairings.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - You know, it's sites like these that make me waver on the idea of being an OshitariKeigo fan, because some of the fanart for them is just so very, very pretty. I love the way the artist draws Keigo, he's just pretty enough, just smirky enough, and just... mm, sleek enough that I go :9 happily. Plus, the colors are lovely, the poses and lines really nice and I *heart* the Hyotei group illustrations. I also think the artist has one of the cutest Ryoma's I've ever seen. XD (Some OshitariKeigo, some TezukaRyoma.)


- Prince of Tennis - CUSTOM [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I totally ganked this one from Adeline, but I had to rec it, because it's one of those sites that gets Tezuka and Fuji just right for the way I see them. They're gorgeous, amazing, powerful, yet subtle characters; they care a great deal about each other, they make each other smile real smiles, and they can be so funny a times. Nurse Fuji made me grin so hard I think my face hurt just a little and the artist's Tezuka? I drool over how gorgeous he is. *_* Plus, her Fuji is that wonderful balance between slightly, slightly feminine, but still very much a guy, just... very beautiful. Plus, the comics are wonderful and I absolutely adore the lines and colors the artist uses, they make me feel so warm. *sparkles* (TezukaFuji/FujiTezuka and a little FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - Digital Scoop [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Ooh! Scoop's website! I've really come to *heart* their doujinshi! *sparkles* Scoop's art took me awhile to get into, because it was more angular than I was used to, but once I did, I've really come to love it, because they do the most heart-warming stuff. =^_^= There's this one of Tezuka and Fuji in the snow that just makes me melt every time I see it, and, ooh, there's this one of Fuji sleeping on a couch that... just... so wonderful. And, really, that's what I look for when I go on my fanart jags--to put a smile on my face and this artist does that. She captures the feeling of the characters (I seem to be saying that a lot today, but it's true.) with just the pictures, what made me fall in love with these characters in the first place and her Tezuka is just... so... Tezuka. *loves* (TezukaFuji, OishiEiji, li'l bit MomoRyo/InuiKaidoh/traditional pairings.)


- Prince of Tennis/Harukanaru Toki no Nakade - Jumping Back [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Okay, I knew I had to rec this site when I came across the adorable illustration of "I'm so not a morning person, leave me alone" Eiji brushing his teeth because I squeal at the cuteness of it. XD I like the entire site, though, the shading on the illustrations is gorgeous, making them look fantastic and everything is so cute, without being cutesy. The artist especially does a fantastic Eiji, but I adore her Fuji as well, and the handful of times she's drawn Tezuka, I swoon at his gorgeousness. Plus! Effing adorable icons! XD And then the Harukanaru illustrations are gorgeous as well--like the PoT illustrations, the artist does these amazing things with the colors, making them seem so vibrant and beautiful. Just wonderful. =^_^= (No real pairing themes/warnings, possibly a little FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - KinKan Web [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Oh, this artist draws the prettiest Fuji! *_* There's this one of him blowing bubbles where he's just absolutely beautiful. *sparkles* As I was going through the gallery, I thought I recognize the style a little, but it wasn't until I got to a certain illustration of Tezuka that I recognized the picture from a doujinshi, which didn't surprise me, the artist was definitely good enough to be drawing doujinshi. What I love about the artist's style--besides that her characters are gorgeous--are the softer, almost muted colors, more subtle shades that work so well for these characters. Plus, I just flutter at the way the artist draws TezukaFuji~~ (Some TezukaFuji, some FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - Innocence [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I just adore this site, the artist draws the most beautiful Tezuka and Keigo that I've seen in awhile, just absolutely wonderful; the lines are smooth and clean, the way she draws their hair is gorgeous, the lines of their faces makes them gorgeous and they really, really, really look like themselves. (I'm reminded of the manga art, actually.) And the way the artist draws Tezuka in the rain or snow... I swoon at how pretty he is. *_* And the feel of the illustrations is just absolutely perfect for these characters. Just... really, this artist is one of those ones that's really, really good and one of the best sites out there. Plus, there's a lot of art to make me happy, especially if you look around. The art of Tezuka and Keigo as kids? Had me squeeing at the adorableness. I... am incoherent with the love for this site. (This rec also doesn't do the site justice, really. =_=) (TezukaKeigo/KeigoTezuka, some Tezuka/Inui, some Tezuka/Oshitari.)


- Prince of Tennis - Deep Sea [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I don't think there was a single illustration on this site that I didn't absolutely *heart* because the artist, while not having drawn a ton of art, drew the characters very, very well, made them look very pretty, and just had this tone to her art that made me smile and want to glomp the characters. The art itself was very well-done, the characters looked like themselves, the colors were lovely shades, all that, but what really won me over is that they sort of had that quality to them (through the poses/expressions, tones, whatever you want to call it) that the best artists have, that quality that leaves you feeling happy and sparkly afterwards. I'm not sure how to describe it other than that. ^_^;; I liked this site a lot. XD (Some TezukaFuji, some TezukaRyoma.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - There are several things I love about this site. First, is that the artist draws the characters beautifully; Fuji's and Tezuka's and all the other characters' eyes are drawn in this very... piercing way that makes them just gorgeous (Fuji is especially just beautiful), and this is combined with very soft, gentle lines and colors, giving the site a very... almost (but not quite) light and airy feeling, while still having substance. One of my favorite types of art. =^_^= Plus, when the artist draws Tezuka and Fuji leaning on each other or Tezuka kissing Fuji (or Tezuka in a formal suit *_*), she captures the feeling of the characters and I'm a very, very happy fangirl. And there is a whole lot of art... and then there's the smut~~ *sparkles massively* (TezukaFuji, some FujiOther.)


- Prince of Tennis - lollipoppers [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - This is another artist who does a really pretty Fuji and a really cute Eiji, so I found myself happily going through the site this afternoon. I think my favorite thing--other than prettypretty Fuji and glompable!Eiji--is the coloring the artist does, it's very nice, very sold and good shading, etc.; I wouldn't be surprised at all if the artist were a doujinshika, the linework and coloring are that good. Of course, with most of the good PoT artists I automatically assume that. ^_~ (Some FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - Another Proteus 36-hp [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - ....wow, is that a gorgeous FujiEiji on the top page there. *_* Just... wow. Normally, I don't rec pages with only a handful of illustrations and even rarer still for pairings that aren't my favorite, but... this artist's work is just gorgeous and I had to. I'm absolutely in love with the way the artist draws Fuji, he's just... geh, not nearly enough positive adjectives for him. Just... gorgeous. *_* (Some FujiEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - State Shine [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Eeeee! This site draws such a pretty Tezuka! I really love the softener they used but didn't go overboard with, it adds this really nice touch to the illustrations, making them even nicer-looking. There are these two TezuFuji illustrations right at the begging of the gallery... they're just so pretty! ....I'm going to be using that word a lot while talking about this site, aren't I? ^_~ Anyway, the real highlight of the site are the lovely comics, the drawings are just beautiful, the shading is lovely, the characters look fantastic, and I absolute adore her Tezuka and Fuji. *sparkles* (TezukaFuji, some Oshitari+Tezuka, some Yamato+Tezuka, some TezukaRyoma, some TezukaKeigo.)


- Prince of Tennis - Flying Dish [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - When I first started clicking around this site, I knew I was probably going to rec it because the artist draws a very, very nice Fuji, she really has the way he looks down so well. Plus, she drew him in all these cute/cool poses and I was happy. But there are two other reasons I want to rec this site or why it made me happy to see it--one is that she draws Fuji with everyone, so I was able to cross a lot of pairings off my list. I love that. ^_~ The other is that she draws these wonderful TezukaFuji illustrations that just make me sparkle--there's this one of them in the rain.... *happy sigh* But, really, it's mostly because you can tell how much she adores Fuji, how much it really comes through in the way she draws him. ^_^v (Fuji/Everyone, some TezukaFuji.)


- Prince of Tennis/Get Backers - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - There are several things that impressed me about this site. One is the way the artist draws Fuji, she draws him so cute, and his eyes are these pretty colors that stand out so vividly. There's one of him and Tezuka where his eyes are open and my gaze just kept being drawn back to Fuji's eyes because they were so bright, but in a lovely way. The second is that she draws absolutely adore TezukaFuji/FujiEiji illustrations, very cute and sweet and just fun. Though, my favorite is a sort of group illustration of Ryoma, Fuji, Tezuka, and Eiji that's just... wow, it looks so effing cool! She has a strong sense for colors and some of them are just lovely to look at. I really liked this site! ^____^

With the Get Backers part of the site, I was really impressed because the colors get even better and you can just tell that she had a lot of fun drawing Kazuki and Juubei. I love the way she drew Kazuki's hair especially. ^_^v As for the Yuu Yuu Hakusho fanart... I could swear this person is a doujinshika--I would probably be more surprised if she weren't than if she were. Her illustrations are very strong, the shading and colors done well, the lines very strong and clean, and everything just seems to point that she's got a lot of skill. Plus... EEEEE!! SO CUTE! It's been awhile since I've come across a good YYH site, so it's wonderful to spend a bit of time with these characters again. (TezukaFuji, FujiEiji, Juubei+Kazuki, Hiei+Kurama.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - ....oh, my god, the cuteness of this site physically hurts me. It's just... SO CUTE!!! Little chibi-Eiji running around (frequently without clothes on), Oishi being a darling and chasing after him or holding him close... I... I am incoherent from the cute. Plus, there's the occasional bit of (regular sized ....well, sometimes in sprite/chibi-form >_>) lime and I happily skip over to these illustrations, but... it's really the cute that won me over as hard as it did. Everything is just cuter and more adorable than the last and I can't stop making this face --> XD XD XD (OishiEiji, a little MomoEiji.)


- Prince of Tennis - Boy's Study After School [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - I admit, I tend to glomp onto sites with odd pairings that I've not seen much before because I have an unholy love of that sort of thing, but I also like seeing just pretty art, and this artist draws quite nicely. ^_^v She has a lot of talent with colors and different shades of colors and while her Kaidoh tends to be a little on the frail/delicate side, he's adorable, too. And I really, really like the way she drew Tezuka sometimes. *hearts* And! Some nice InuiKaidoh to make the traditional 'shipper in me happy, too. XD (Everyone/Kaidoh, with TezukaKaidoh probably being the frontrunner.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - Normally, InuiTezuka/TezuaInui isn't my pairing, but there's something about these illustrations that I just really liked, I think it was the soft colors that did it for me. Well, that and the artist draws a gorgeous Tezuka and that always makes me swoon. I really liked this site because of the pretty poses she puts the characters in, the soft, gentle way she draws them, the way she makes me love the characters, the way she seems to just have fun with them. Plus, there's an absolutely gorgeous one of Tezuka and Oishi when they were first years that just makes me sparkle like mad. ^_____^v (Tezuka-centric, with InuiTezuka/TezukaInui probably the frontrunner.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - It's a rare site that can not have any color art on it that'll still get my attention and make me go *___*, but this artist does amazing inking and shading and draws TezuFuji kissing~! *hanya~n~* The wedding illustration is probably my favorite, just because it cracks me up so much, but I really do like all the art--the lines are so pretty and so clean and the amount of detail put into each illustration is wonderful. I especially love the way Tezuka and Fuji's hair looks--and the shading on their school uniforms is just awesome. *fawns* Plus! Lots of kissing! I always enjoy that. XD (TezukaFuji/FujiTezuka, MomoKai.)


- Prince of Tennis - [ Japanese Fan Art Site ] - There are several things I liked about this site--the colors were nice, the selection of characters and number of illustrations was wonderful, too, the artist does an lovely Atobe, and there was an absolutely darling TezukaFuji illustration that I loved. The colors seem almost softened, which is one of my favorite effects when used just right, because they seem almost romantic, yet the colors were still so vivid. And her Jiroh is adorable! Toss in some cute Seigaku, Fudomine, mixed, and AtobeJiroh art and you've got a site that was fun for me to go through. ^_^v Oh! I almost forgot! This site has the coolest Atobe sprites/icons EVER. XD XD XD (OshitariAtobe, some ToriShishi, Seigaku, and Hyotei art.)
