- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - 1691999 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was kind of in the mood for some Dino/Hibari this morning and happened onto this site, which took me all of about three illustrations to know that I really liked it. While the artist's Hibari is a little more passive/uncaring than I'd usually go for (one of the things that I liked so much about him was that he was kind of scary intense--and she does sometimes draw him looking the way I prefer, which is nice), her style is really hot and fitting for the series. There's a lot of oekaki-esque art, even in the main gallery, but that just adds to the awesomeness of her style. There's an almost rough, jagged quality to the art, which makes her Dino look totally hot and she does the occasional damn fine Mukuro as well. I liked this site a lot. (Dino/Hibari, a little other potential yaoi, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - raibura [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The more I think about this pairing, the more fanart I see for them, the more I think I could really, truly, actively ship these two. And it doesn't hurt when I get to see smoking hot fanart like the art on this site, where the artist has this style that really suits the tone of the series/characters, the sharp, intense sort of art that I love. You can especially see it in the b&w illustrations, her Hibari has those fantastically intense eyes that look deceptively lazy and all that messy hair on both Hibari and Dino and... as;flkaslkj yes. This is what I was looking for. <3 (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - Peeco? [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The artist might start off a little shakey on this site, but she doesn't take long to get really good, combinging a lot of detail in her images and some really vivid colors. She has these smooth, clean colors that mix together really well and then draws the characters all super hot. Looking at her b&w images, you can see how clean her lines are, how sharp and attractive they are, that same style that I like so much with Reborn! art. While I came here for the Dino/Hibari art, looking at any character the artist draws is a treat because her art is so hot, there's one of Chrome that's just gorgeous, one of Tsuna and Basil that's amazing, and a lovely one of Tsuna with Mukuro and Hibari in the background. This is why I was so eager to seek out Reborn! fanart. <3 (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's something about the messy, almost scribbly style of this artist that I quietly liked. I'm sure the focus on Hibari (and being friendly towards Dino/Hibari) helped a lot and maybe it's not going to be for everyone, but I liked it as a site that helped give me my fix for the day. It's a fun little site with a surprising amount of detail and the sketch-like quality of the images works for this particular artist. There's not a ton of art, but enough that I was charmed. (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is definitely a site that's not going to be for everyone, the loosely scrawled art isn't going to appeal to everyone, probably especially the early stuff, but somewhere along the line, I became a little enamored with it. There's a certain intensity to the art that appeals to me (a description I fear I'm going to be using way too much when it comes to Reborn! art, I suppose) and I wound up really liking the way her Hibari looks. Maybe it was the way she drew Dino and Hibari together, there was a certain heat between them, even if Hibari was sometimes a little more passive than I'd have liked. The artist totally made up for that with Dino's tattoos being super-hot, though. :D (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is not going to be for everyone and, I admit, I tended to skim past some of the earlier art on this site, but... the artist showed potential with her regular illustrations, her Dino and Hibari looked like they could get to be really smoking hot. And, sure enough, the further I got into the gallery, the more I really liked the way she drew them. I mean, I'm a little unsure at how much bigger Dino looks than Hibari, but... well, her Dino was often hot, so I was willing to look past it. XD The messy, shaggy hair and loose, light lines for their clothes, it combines into something interesting to look at. <3 (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was all prepared to wander away from this site, when the artist did a couple of things that caught my attention. First, she drew a really kinda hot Dino fanart with these gorgeous eyes, which I am really quite easy for. XD Second, she drew a series of chibi-esque illustrations of much of the main cast, which were so adorable and I'm also weak to art of multiple characters like that. As the site went on, I could definitely see improvement from the artist, the latest three illustrations (give or take a couple) have been getting really good, they're smoothing out and being polished up a little more, so I would really love to see more from this artist. What's here is, in the meantime, enough for a nice little fix. (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn! - [ Korean Fanart Site ] - I was randomly linkhopping and I don't even remember how I got onto a circle of Korean art sites, much less on Reborn! Korean art sites (I was looking at Gurren Lagann fanart) but I'm really glad I did. I have a great, great fondness for that Korean style of art (which is hard to describe, you'll know what I mean if you've seen it before), especially with manga characters. In a lot of ways, it feels kinda shoujo-esque, which you wouldn't think would work for a character like Hibari, but the style still manages to keep those intense eyes of his and the messy hair, so it delights me. And I love the pastel colors that the artist uses often times and her Dino is so hot, it totally makes up for there not being a lot of art on the site. It's actually more of a WJ variety site, but only with Reborn! is there enough to count for a rec, I feel. Also, there's the most adorable Reborn! chibis ever on this site, so it gets the rec, the end. XD (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- D.Gray-man/Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - 1369 [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that's not going to appeal to everyone, I wasn't even going to recommend it at first, I was barely even halfway through the Reborn! art when I was about to give up. But... the D.Gray-man gallery is what really caught my attention with this site, the artist's style (which is very stylized, something that's not going to appeal to absolutely everyone) was kind of quirky and interesting, something that suited DGM really well. And I decided to include it in the REBORN! section as well because the artist does Dino/Hibari and it's somewhat intense art, which suits them. And, you know. Dino's tattoos are hot when drawn by this artist. That's a point in their favor. <3 It's not perfect, but it's interesting at least. The site makes for a good stop in a fanart hunt spree, I think. :D (Dino/Hibari for REBORN!, mostly gen for DGM, maybe a little Lavi/Allen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - KJ [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There's not a whole ton of art here, but at least there's a solid amount, which I mostly only complain about because I would really like to have seen more from this artist. There's a feel from her art that's very much like the canon source, which I didn't realize for a little while at first because the artist resizes her images on the page, making them look very aliased. When I viewed them at their regular size, the lines smoothed out considerably and the art looked terrific. My favorites were the Dino/Hibari illustrations of course, but the artist does a really fantastic Tsuna and some great Hibari stand alones as well. Very worth the trip here. (Some Dino/Hibari, maybe some Hibari/Tsuna, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - morrisn [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So. Dino/Hibari is fast hurtling towards being an OTP of mine, which means seeking out as much fanart of them as I can, quite possibly until my brain melts from seeing all of it. But it'll be worth it because I really do enjoy sites with that rough sort of quality that so fits these two characters, the kind that might not be my preference with another pairing, but for these two it works. And, yeah, again, Hibari's a little more passive than I'd expect, but... hot!Dino! Hot!Dino with hot tattoos. I don't care about a lot in the face of hot!Dino with hot tattoos. It's not going to be for everyone, but I enjoyed it. (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitaman Reborn! - L + A + S [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - So. I mentioned the growing obsession with Dino/Hibari, right? Because it's certainly attempting to take over my brain for awhile. And maybe it makes me less discerning or maybe it just makes me enjoy sites that I might have otherwise skimmed over because I'm just looking to enjoy the site, rather than critique it. But this artist does some really nice stuff, her Hibari looks great in a lot of these illustrations and her Dino has really hot tattoos and she draws clothes so well. She actually has some really cool lines and strong details, so I genuinely liked this site a lot. (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - nkk [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I feel like maybe I've been to this site before, but that it might also just be because the style is similar to one I've seen used on other Dino/Hibari sites or even because I've been looking at so much fanart in the last few days that my brain is sort of starting to dribble out my ears a little. However. It's a style I greatly appreciate for Dino/Hibari sites because it's got this almost rough quality to it, except that's not really it, maybe intense might be a better word for it. Their hair is messy and their eyes draw in my attention with how sharp they look and the Dino/Hibari chemistry totally carries over into the art, I think. I do wonder if Hibari is a little more passive than I would like here (as well as put in dresses a little more often than I might have believed), but... well, I totally forget that in the face of the artist's smoking hot Dino. His tattoos are so hot. As for the Gintama fanart, it's much the same. I really like the artist's pseudo-rough style and her Hijikata looks really kinda super hot and I wonder if Okita isn't a little too passive, but I forget about that in the face of art that makes me smile. A very nice site! ♥ (Dino/Hibari, Hijikata/Okita.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Kodemari no Kimi [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I am always easy when it comes to porn, even if I wonder a little at Dino being so huge, especially compared to Hibari. On the other hand, Dino's hot, his tattoos are hot, and it's porn. Like I'm complaining. ♥ I do really love her Hibari, though, he's very much like in canon, all intense, deceptively lazy stares or annoyance (well, usually, anyway), and the artist does some really hot shading. Very nice little site, I'd love to see more from the artist. Or a doujinshi. *__* (Dino/Hibari, some NSFW content in at least two images.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I realize that I end up recommending a lot of sites that most people probably aren't going to like, so my tastes might not mesh with a lot of people's, but I kind of can't help it when it comes to sites like this. After seeing as much fanart as I have, sometimes it starts to all blend together in my brain, so I want something a little different, even if it's just a style that's a little messier or has an interesting use of color like this site does. I was intrigued by the Tsuna/Gokudera illustration on the site, amused by cute little Kyouya illustrations, intrigued by little bitty Mukuro with the sly smirk on his face, but I think it was really the one of little kidlet Squalo with his hair up in ponytails that really did it for me. And while there's not a ton of art here, the artist covers a lot of potential pairings--Xanxus/Squalo, Yamamoto/Squalo, Tsuna/Gokudera, Dino/Hibari, etc.--and it was kinda fun to look at them all. (A lot of potential yaoi pairings, a lot of gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I have a great fondness for art sites that use the CG style well, especially when the colors are really vivid and sharp to match the pointy lines and the artist does a very nice Tsuna in Hyper Dying Will mode, where his eyes and the fire are practically glowing. He looks so hot that way. And there's a gorgeous Chrome illustration here, too. And I like the way the artist's Dino/Hibari looks as well, all that messy, sharp hair, the vivid yellows and blacks and purples used for these characters. The clothes look so sharp and clean as well and the b&w sketches show off the pretty lines from the artist, especially on Hibari who looks just gorgeous, you can just tell how much the artist really likes the character. There's a solid amount of art here and it's one of the better ones I've been to lately for this pairing, I think. Also, I may have lol'd at the image of Dino with his arm around Hibari to hold him in place while he forcibly shoves the Vongola ring onto his hand while Hibari looks pissy. Or Dino leaning over to read over Hibari's shoulder, while Hibari casually stabs his hand with a pen. It's the little things sometimes. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some other, but there's more gen art than anything else.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Vivid Bit [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - If this were any other pairing, I'm not sure that I would have stuck around all that long. Or if I hadn't been to so many fanart sites over time, if I wouldn't have grown used to this style of art, I don't know if it would have done it for me. But it's a WJ series and I'm weak for Dino/Hibari art and the artist actually does put a rather solid amount of detail into her art. If nothing else, I love the one of Dino and Hibari standing back to back, how I almost didn't even notice their hands were together until I really looked at it, the style using those flat colors that are interesting with certain artists and a messy sort of style that works for her. Also, there's a couple of NSFW illustrations and that always puts me in a good mood. ^_~ (Dino/Hibari, a couple of NSFW images in the gallery.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - BANYU [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'd seen this artist's site linked a few times and I always meant to get around to it, but it wasn't until I'd seen the doujinshi she'd drawn, the one with two Dinos ganging up on Hibari and it was really very nice art, that I zipped over to her site. And it's more of the same sharp, intense lines that work so well with a series like Reborn! and especially a couple like Dino/Hibari. Her colors are gorgeous, too, a lot of times colors can soften the impact of sharp lines like this, but I love the way Dino's hair looks or the way she shades their clothes. It's one of those sites that might not be for everyone, but it hit me exactly the right way. *__* (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - jet [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, see. I was totally ready to move on from this site, I'd gone through the main gallery and stopped on a couple of Dino/Hibari illustrations and I liked the potential of the artist, but didn't quite vibe her yet and then... then I went to check the under gallery and, dammit. Dino/Hibari porn and it's really kind of hot. The artist's messy, rough style somehow totally works for me in those illustrations and it's not just that they're porny... not that that hurts, either, mind. But I genuinely like them and think they're solid. Or, at least, that they truly work for me. ♥ (Dino/Hibari, NSFW content on some pages.)

- Kateyou Hitman Reborn! - *m s c [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It's rare that I'll go to a site and find Dino more interesting than Hibari, but the artist here draws him really quite well. Between that and the oekaki illustrations that are totally messy and scribbly but still manage to somehow be really kind of hot, I enjoyed the site a lot. There's not a ton of art here, but just enough that I could justify a rec, I think. There's a sense of violence and intensity to the art that matches up well with the characters, I enjoyed this site. (Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - graycells [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated a little bit with this site, I wasn't quite sure it was to my taste, but I definitely wanted to keep going because I liked the artist's sharp, clean b&w style. And there were a lot of characters I thought she did really well, her Dino is very nice and I like her Squalo a lot. But it wasn't until getting to the one of Dino giving a kidlet!Hibari a ride on his shoulders that I officially fell for the site, because it was just too adorable to resist. Then she followed it up with one of Hibari with little kidlet!Dino and I was just... utterly charmed. I sometimes have a bit of trouble telling who's supposed to be whom, but when the artist is on, I love the art a lot, so I don't mind so much. The one of Dino and Hibari touching foreheads (where Hibari looks like some combination of bored and wtf and it's nice) is worth the site alone, her Dino is fantastic. Her Gintama fanart is much the same, though, I think I love her Hijikata/Okita even more, such pretty and sharp b&w lines for them. And when she uses color, it's really nicely done. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen for Reborn! and some Hijikata/Okita, some gen for Gintama.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Fullmetal Alchemist - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I tried very hard to resist this site, it doesn't have a lot of art and it's mostly oekaki-style illustrations that are here, but... the Roy/Ed was so adorable (or hilarious, the one of Ed practically strangling Roy or the figuring of Ed taking a bath was so ridiculously hilarious ♥) and then the Reborn! section had a cute Kyouko illustration, an adorable Lambo/I-Pin oekaki, and then had Dino/Hibari oekaki. a sdflkajslkjas, I'm weak, okay? There's not a lot of art here and it might not necessarily be for everyone, but I wound up kind of adoring the hell out of this site. It's just cute and fun and made me happy. ♥ (Some Roy/Ed, a smidge of Dino/Hibari, a lot of gen for both series.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The loose, not quite messy, sketch illustration with a lighter use of colors really works for me on this site. Her characters look so very hot and I love the way their bodies and movements look and I love the way she draws Dino's tattoos and her Hibari is so hot. There's not a whole ton of art here, which makes me sad because I really like this artist a lot. Her b&w stuff is as hot as her colored art, which I don't see all that often, I think both work almost equally well. (I do like the color art a smidge better, but that's only because most people do like color over simple b&w, not because they're any better done.) Her Yamamoto is also very nice and this was just a cool little site. (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I... I kind of knew that I was going to be caving on this site when I came across the oekaki of Hibari with a purple dying will flame on his head (which I'd never seen before and is kind of great), but it was official when I was going through the oekaki board and there was this utterly adorable series of chibis with Hibari raking at some leaves on the ground, while Ryouhei comes along curiously, wondering what he's doing and then he gets a totally great idea and dumbs a whole bagful of raked up leaves over Hibari's head. I had to laugh. But the oekaki really is fun here, sometimes totally cute chibis, sometimes pretty little sketches of the characters. A fun way to spend half an hour or so. <3 (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - WARLOCK [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Again, there's not a whole lot of fanart on this site, but... well, when the second illustration I saw was one of Dino picking Hibari up and practically carrying him off over his shoulder and Hibari had this hilarious WTF look on his face (right before he started biting, I like to believe), I had to laugh. Kind of a lot. And the rest of the site is nice, even the oekaki (which are a little small for my usual taste, but still nice) and sketches are interesting to look at. There's even a totally adorable Bianchi+Gokudera sketch and Gokudera in glasses! I was pleased. ♥ (Some Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - 7menzippo [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Okay, the second illustration on this site is one of the Reborn! characters at a festival in yukata and have fried corn on the cob and masks and everything and it's very cute, but what totally sold me on the site is the utterly bored expression on Hibari's face as Dino goes :D :D :D at everything. And then after that is the the very, very nice anime-cel-style illustrations and, oh, man, Dino's arms. And the tattoos. *__* I am willing to overlook just about anything for Dino with hot, hot tattoos. But I really do like the artist's take on the characters, it does feel very anime-esque with her CG-style colors, and she definitely has some very interesting pieces on the site. And by "interesting", I mean, "Wow, her Hibari is kind of seriously hot." And a lot of her Dino/Hibari illustrations are pretty smoking, too. The one at sunset, where they're fighting and Dino's whip is wrapped around Hibari's tonfa is really beautifully done. But I think maybe my favorite one is where Hibari is casually hosing Dino in the face, his expression not looking an iota out of normal. Just. Ahahahahaha, yes. (Dino/Hibari, a little NSFW content on some of the pages.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Bleach/Gintama/Naruto - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site didn't take me long at all to really come to like. Not all of the illustrations are perfect, but the artist has a style where she has very fine, detailed lines, the kind with the really fleshed backgrounds (or sometimes just really complex looking structures around the characters) or just really detailed looking clothing and it's a very cool style. And it's just even better that, while I came here for and really like the Dino/Hibari, the artist also seems fond of Gokudera/Tsuna! I reallylike the way the artist draws Dino's hair, too. *__* Her Bleach art is in much the same style and while I think it works better with other series, I find the art really cool-looking still. And ditto again for the Gintama and Naruto fanart, they're definitely worth visiting for those series as well. (Dino/Hibari and some gen for KHR. Some Aizen/Gin and some gen for Bleach. Some GinZura and some gen for Gintama. Gen for Naruto.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - platinum spider [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated on recommending this site because there's not a lot of art here (maybe only a dozen or so images total?) and the style is very messy and not necessarily going to appeal to everyone, but... I was immediately charmed by it. The style is rough and messy, sure, but it really fits with the Dino/Hibari pairing for me. She does an intense Hibari and a really hot Dino and the series of comic panels arranged into a story was really kind of hot. My only complaint about the site is that there's not enough art, I really want to see more from this artist. *__* (Dino/Hibari, some gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Spool [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Sometimes I recommend a site not for the overall art, but because I liked a particular aspect of one artist's style. With this site, the second artist here (it appears to be a joint page with two artists?) has this way of drawing the characters' hair and these soft, gently glowing colors that I really liked. I really want to see her keep practicing and see more from her... as well as I'm kind of weak to her illustrations of Dino holding cute little kidlet!Hibari and them curling up to sleep on each other. It's so adorable. The site isn't going to be for everyone and I'm probably weak to it because I love the pairing so much, but I honestly and truly enjoyed this site. <3 (Dino/Hibari.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - SSM [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site that's not going to be for everyone, the art is very cutesy, and the early stuff is kind of shakey. I admit that I also skimmed over a lot of the comics stuff. But what I really liked about this site was that it was cute, the art made me smile and I genuinely liked it. Her Dino and Hibari are adorable especially, but I liked her Hibari-only art a lot as well. It's one of those sites that I just... felt was a nice, cute stop during my fanart hunting spree that evening. A-and, okay. The smidge of Gokudera/Tsuna didn't hurt my feelings either. :D ALSO, THERE ARE SPRITES. I LOVE SPRITES, THEY MAKE ME HEARTMARK SO HARD. And these sprites are adorable! (Dino/Hibari, a little gen.)
