- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is one of those sites where I think maybe I liked the b&w stuff more than the color stuff (even though I kept wanting to find more color art at the same time, huh), something about that seems to draw my eye better to the interesting detail the artist puts into the images. I'm sure I was biased towards this site because there's a lot of Xanxus and Squalo (and Tsuna and some Yamamoto) art here and I've been intrigued by that pairing a lot lately, but... it really is interesting stuff to look at. The comics and the splash-page-style illustrations are my favorites, it's a style I've been weak to ever since getting into FMA and One Piece (which would often have fanart in that kinda style), but everything here is really fun or really cool to look at. Not necessarily going to wow everyone, but it's grown to be one of my favorite kind of styles, so I loved the site. (Mostly gen, but some Yamamoto/Squalo, some Xanxus/Squalo, some Xanxus/Squalo/Tsuna, some Squalo/Tsuna, some Hibari/Tsuna, some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other possible pairings.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Death Note - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The art on this site starts out cute, if a little shakey, but quickly becomes really, really pretty. The artist puts in a lot of detail, which is nice, but it's more the... the use of colors and something that almost glows in them. If I were just looking at b&w, I think I would like them, but when I see the artist's colors, they become really that much more outstanding. The artist does an amazing job with Mukuro especially, but it's also worth visiting the site for the gorgeous Colonello illustration, the stunning Hyper Dying Will Tsuna illustration, and even the pairing stuff is really cute. As for the Death Note stuff, I think it's a bit older, so it's not quite as strong, but the artist does some really cool concepts--Raito against the stained glass church windows is one of my favorites--and somewhat of a variety of the main trio that I wound up really liking it, too. (Mostly a gen site, but some Mukuro/Tsuna, a smidge of Hibari/Tsuna. Gen for Death Note.)


- Naruto/Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Gintama - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I probably would have skipped right past the Naruto section on this site if not for a few things: I do really like the artist's style, it's interesting and cool to look at, it's not a style I see super-often, but when it's done well, it's good. The Sasuke stand-alone character art was fun for me to look at, the almost b&w style the artist has is a little reminiscent of a shounen manga style (different enough from Kishimoto's to be interesting, but similar enough to be recognizable, a good balance) and I know there are a lot of people who like Kakashi/Sasuke. As for the REBORN! art, the style suits the characters as well (though, I thought maybe the Naruto art was a little bit better done) and the artist's Gokudera is especially fantastic. The amazing amount of detail she puts into illustrations with him is terrific. ♥ Though, I think the Gintama art might just be the best out of them all, since the detail and b&w-esque style works so perfectly with the feel of the Gintama art, it's very canon-like! (Kakashi/Sasuke for Naruto. Maybe some Mukuro/Tsuna for REBORN!, but mostly gen. Mostly gen for Gintama.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is a little bit hit-or-miss for me (which I seem to be feeling a lot lately), but I found that the more I went through the gallery, the more I was drawn into the artist's style and the more I found I genuinely liked the art. Maybe it's the artist's use of colors that create interesting pieces, but when she really focuses, I like the lineart itself a lot, too. There's also a nice selection of the various regular characters It's not going to be for everyone, but there were a couple of Mukuro/Chrome or Hibari illustrations (or one really gorgeous Gokudera one *__*) that I thought were definitely worth the site. (Nothing I'm really going to warn for.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - crunch [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - The very first illustration I clicked onto with this site was a really lovely Bel/Tsuna illustration... which is both a rare pairing but also interesting, because it was so pretty. The artist uses these really light, airy, glowing, almost-pastel colors that make everything really kinda nice--the basic lineart is cute enough, but I totally fell for this site because of the colors. I'm easy for that sort. *g* There's also a fair amount of art on the site, which is always nice. :D (Some various yaoi pairings, but nothing regular enough to mention, and it's mostly gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - TNK... [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - You know, strangely enough, it wasn't the color art on this site that won me over, it was the sketches section, with the artist's b&w stuff that I really liked. There are some really fantastic little pieces in those galleries, the lines are just a smidge messy, but in the way that makes them look prettier. The artist clearly favors Gokudera, but I like that there's a solid selection of just about all the characters--one of my favorite pieces was actually of Xanxus in one of the more recent pages. ....also, the Tsuna/Gokudera didn't hurt my feelings at all, some of the sketches were really, really cute! I had fun with this site, it was a nice little stop. <3 (Some Tsuna/Gokudera, some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Inuyasha - choeX [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I wavered a little on this site, it was cute, but I was sort of in the mood for Tsuna/Gokudera more than anything. But the Gokudera solo illustration was pretty and there was a very canon-esque style to the artist's work and then there was this really sweet rooftop Tsuna/Gokudera doujinshi and I was kind of caving. But what really did me in was that there was a Dino/Hibari illustration on the site, too! *flails* And it was kind of super hot, too. ♥ It's the only one (that I saw--well, except they do show up in a later comic) on the site, but it was enough to push me over the edge just enough, and decide that I liked this site. It's primarly a Gokudera fansite, it's got a lot of standalones with him and then a bunch of the usual Gokudera pairings, but what sells it is that the artist's style is very close to canon-esque at times with the character and then just really cute when she does her own thing. Most of the art is also doujinshi-like comics/pages, but they're strong enough and there's enough of them that I liked the site a lot. As for the Inuyasha art, I had planned to just pass by that section, it's been ages since I felt the urge to look at art for the series, but I liked the artist's REBORN! work enough that I got curious. And as;dlfkjaslkj it was so pretty! The artist's Inuyasha and Miroku especially looked really fantastic, so I caved. XD Her wet!Miroku, which is the first illustration that I saw, is especially so pretty. *__* (Some Tsuna/Gokudera, some Yamamoto/Gokudera, a little other, some gen for REBORN!. Some Miroku/Inuyasha, but a lot of gen, too.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Ryugo [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I came here for the REBORN! art, obviously, but you know what was awesome about this site? Aside from the super-pretty art, that is. There was Host Club art! Host Club art with a Kyouya/Tamaki-friendly bent! That just totally made my day right there. ♥ But I'm recommending this site for the REBORN! art (only because there's not quite enough Host Club art) because it's really gorgeous stuff--the lines are sharp, the colors are slick, the kind of style that's really professional level quality. Some of the illustrations have all this detail on them, just the little things like tons of hair or a bunch of wrinkles in their clothes or the shading on their skin, and it was just really pretty. The site doesn't really focus on a single character or pairing (though, Hibari and the Varia show up a lot), which is also nice! Plus, man, some of those Hibari illustrations with Mukuro or Dino or even just by himself? So. Hot. (Some various yaoi pairings, but nothing consistent enough to warn for.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - HARIYA [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - If I hadn't started with the most recent art and worked my way backwards or if this site hadn't had a large focus on Xanxus and Squalo, I'm not sure how I would have reacted to it. (Also, I may have recommended this site before, but, eh.) But approaching the site the way I did made me really kinda fond of the rougher art style and the style is a really good fit for characters like those two. There are some others that appear, especially early on, but if you're going here, you'd probably be best off as a Varia fan. (Though, there is at least one smoking hot Dino illustration, so.) Plus, there's actually kind of a lot of art here! :D And I really liked the sketches, they soften the artist's style up a bit, making them even prettier, mm. (Some Xanxus/Squalo, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - ROSSO [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was sort of half-heartedly going thorugh this site's galleries, thinking that the artist was doing solid work, but it hadn't quite hit me yet, and I was clicking randomly and I realized that this site had... Spanner/Tsuna art. Really, really pretty Spanner/Tsuna art! So, I started over from the top of the gallery and worked my way through it, coming to be charmed by the artist's Byakuran/Mukuro art as well! You'd think there'd be more art of that pairing, wouldn't you? And yet this might be the first site I've seen with it, iirc? Though, it's really the Spanner/Tsuna art (or at least the most current art, which is mostly devoted to that pairing) that's the real prize on this site, it's so pretty and shiny and detailed and really kinda nails canon's style. Also, once you get into the more current log art, it's more really cute stuff, and the site was quite satisfying size-wise (and diverse with the characters! the Hibari stuff is especially nice) as well. I was pleased. (Some Spanner/Tsuna, some Byakuran/Mukuro, some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - WK.com [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site starts out a little rough, but it was still very solid and had Xanxus/Squalo and a little bit of Bel/Squalo, which put me in the right frame of mind. As the site went along, the artist got better and then there was Byakuran/Shouichi art, which I'd been looking for! The artist does well with the canon style and her work improves with each illustration, which makes me really, really want more from her now, some of her current stuff is really pretty. I wish there'd been more art here right now, but as it is, it's a solid little site that was worth the time it took for me to go through it and I'm eager for more from her. ♥ (Xanxus/Squalo, Byakuran/Shouichi, some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - RisingStar [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm not sure how I got to this site anymore, since it's one of those that has a variety of match-ups on it, but I'm glad I did. It was a solid little site, not much art, but a really nice, clean style with some bright, shiny colors. Actually, the Mukuro/Chrome art is really, really cute, the one of them lying together in the grass is just lovely. But there's also at least one SUPER CUTE Kyoko and some fabulous group art that has so many colors and they're that jewel-toned stuff that I'm so weak to. The Mukuro/Tsuna/Chrome art is really cute, too. Anyway, not a lot of art, but some of the illustrations verge on gorgeous and it's not pairings I see that often. So, thumbs up from me! (Some Mukuro/Tsuna/Chrome, some Mukuro/Chrome, some other het, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Baghdad Sky [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - One of the next sites I stumbled over this one and I apparently had a run of good luck with art sites because I wound up really liking this one. Initially I was really kind of curious about it because it had Gokudera/Haru art and it's such a strange pairing that I had to see how it worked and then there was Bianchi art and then more Gokudera/Haru and a lot of really pretty Gokudera art and all of it was this shiny sort of coloring that I really liked and just... it was kinda cool. A bit on the sketchy side, but the artist's style made it work, I think. Her more current stuff and her TYL!Gokudera and her older Haru are kind of smoking hot, too. Just. Wow. *__* ....it's sites like this that are kind of making me weak to the idea of Gokudera/Haru almost kind of seriously. *__* At the very least, I think this site is worth visiting for the Haru fanart because how often do you find genuinely GOOD art of her? Or of Bianchi? (Gokudera/Haru, Yamamoto/Gokudera, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Blueprint Map [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site starts off a little sketchy, but it really only took me about four or five links into the gallery to warm up to it. Part of that is, yes, I like Hibari and Dino/Hibari, but the art actually does get really pretty really fast. One of the first color ones with Hibari, one of him against a backdrop of dark sakura trees is really kind of beautiful and it gets better from there. The artist draws a very hot Hibari when she puts her mind to it and her Mukuro and her Dino are also pretty smoking. Also, her series of cast members in warm winter jackets? Omg yes plz. This site turned out to be kind of a real little treasure that I'm so glad I stumbled over, both for the usual pairings and the rare Hibari het pairings--Hibari/I-Pin? Hibari/Kyoko? Even some Hibari/Chrome? I'm up for that. *__* (A myriad of potential pairings, both het and yaoi, a lot of gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I tried to resist this site a bit at first, the art wasn't bad at all, it had some really nice Mukuro and Chrome art, but there wasn't a lot of it and it wasn't 100% wowing me. But it was pretty enough that I wanted to keep going through the gallery anyway and... once I hit the oekaki/log section, I kind of fell for the site. I dunno what it is about oekaki that I'm weak to, but the first few I saw were Hibari illustrations and I love a good b&w high-contrast image of Hibari. Then the Mukuro/Chrome ones were really super cute and pretty and some of the best work is in that section, I think, and then there's one of Hibari all wrapped up for winter wrapping Hibird up, too. Who was I to resist the extreme adorable? I had to. <3 (Some Mukuro/Chrome, a lot of gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - One of the things that I find vaguely frustrating about the REBORN! fanart sites--when it comes to Mukuro art, that is--that some of it is really pretty and there's a ton of it, but I can never really remember which sites I've been to and which ones I haven't, because I'm usually more focused on other characters/pairings. But I'm pretty sure I've never been to this site before because I think I would have remembered a) the Byakuran/Mukuro art or b) the one of Mukuro surrounded by falling feathers and ocean behind him, which was just. Really striking. There's also one of Vongola Boss!Tsuna that's also just... really striking, is the best way I can put it. Not everything on the site is perfect, but there's some really interesting art to be found occasionally and that made it worth the visit. (Mukuro/Tsuna, Byakuran/Mukuro, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I went back and forth on this site for a bit at first, the illustrations seemed to have not resized quite right or something, but you could tell that the artist had some really neat stuff going on. But I kept at the gallery and was totally rewarded with a beautiful Hibari illustration and then a kind of super hot Mukuro/Hibari illustration with panthers and then a really lovely one of Tsuna freeing Mukuro and-- well. Not everything here is perfect, but occasionally there's an image that just totally knocks it out of the park and there's a surprising amount of art here and it was a really satisfying site. The artist's Mukuro/Tsuna is especially lovely, it's all sharp lines and edges that really work for these two! (Mukuro/Tsuna, Mukuro/Hibari, some other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - PSYCHE JAP ONLINE [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Some artists just seem to be made for drawing characters like Squalo or the rest of the Varia sometimes. Not that her art probably wouldn't look good on all the REBORN! characters, but the long, sharp lines and slight sketch quality to them really work for the ones that are her obvious favorites. The site is mostly made up of Squalo art, but there's some Xanxus/Squalo and even some Bel/Squalo, which is something I do not see enough fanart for omg, and oh, MAN, are some of the images here hot. *__* Definitely worth a look if you're a Squalo fan, but it's also just some damn good fanart on its own. <3 The older art is more varied--there's a decent amount of Hibari art, which pleased me, naturally--but it's the more current stuff that's the best, imo. (Some Xanxus/Squalo, some Yamamoto/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - nappy! [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Oh, well, this site just totally hit below the belt with me. I was prepared to just sort of skim the art here, the Squalo stuff wasn't bad, but a little longer/sharper than I was in the mood for, but then. Gokudera/Tsuna art. Yamamoto/Hibari art. TYL!Lambo/Gokuder art. TYL!Hibari art. All things that I am weak to--whether pairings I like or crack pairings that I don't see often and am intrigued by--and the artist's style kind of started to grow on me with each image. There's even a Ryohei/Hibari image and a Bel/Squalo image and it's like-- all my rarepair fondnesses in one site! I-- I am weak to this artist kind of a lot. *__* I mean, there's an illustration of TYL!Yamamoto/TYL!Squalo/TYL!Bel in amongst all the awesome art. It's like she loves me. (Mostly gen, with some Xanxus/Squalo and a whole lot of random other.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - You can find all the REBORN! art from here, but I think the whole gallery is worth going through. The style is a little messy, but in combination with the pretty, almost glowing colors or the really sharp lines, somehow I was really fond of it. The artist does a really awesome job on both Tsuna and Mukuro especially, but her Hibari is pretty damn hot and thus three danger is probably my favorite of hers. The details on that piece, the colors on it, the hot as hell poses! That is what I love about REBORN! fanart. Though, I also have to say Vongola Primo is a seriously gorgeous as hell b&w image of Tsuna. *__* Totally worth checking out and maybe even wandering through the artist's other stuff. (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, mostly gen, I'd say.)


- Vampire Knight/Katekyou Hitman REBORN!/Naruto - [ English Fanart Site ] - God only knows what I was looking for when I stumbled over this site, possibly looking at random Naruto art, but then spied the Vampire Knight fanart in the artist's gallery. And I was curious. I like the REBORN! and Naruto art a lot, both of them, but it's the VK art that really made me sit up and take notice because there's something about the artist's style that works so well with the characters and style of the manga. And I... I mean, I like Zero/Yuuki and I ship it as the OTP, but... with Kaname/Zero... I've always liked the idea (and Hino seriously totally fucking encourages it) and this artist draws them gorgeously. There's not a lot of REBORN! art here on the other hand, but. I am weak to this style, with the soft colors and long lines and cg styling, it's one of those that might not be for everyone, but I like seeing it sometimes. (Some Kaname/Zero for VK. Some Sasuke/Naruto for Naruto. Gen for pretty much all three.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was looking for more Nabari no Ou fanart and happened to stumble over this site instead. I wavered a little on it, not everything on the site is perfect, but there were enough that were either really cute or just flat-out gorgeous that I had to eventually cave. The artist is especially amazing at drawing Tsuna, the one of him in full Vongola wear is just stunning and worth the site alone for that one. But she's also got a cute one of Haru and Kyoko together, she's got a pretty one of Hibari, she's got a really hot Squalo illustration, a really beautiful Chrome one, and so forth. For a site that's pro-Mukuro/Tsuna, there was a really nice amount of the other characters and they were all really pretty! (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - I was browsing a doujinshi post earlier and the OP linked to the artists' websites and I realized that I'd never been to this site before. I'd kind of given up on finding new D18 sites because I've seen so many of them by now, I half-suspect there aren't many good sites left that I haven't seen. And I was sort of getting impatient with this site, I started clicking around randomly, until I got to the artist's more recent stuff. The older stuff is messier and it's definitely the artist's style, it's her more recent art that really got to me and turned kind of super-hot. What I really love about this site is that there's a lot of touching between the characters, even when it's pretty PG (if even that), hands on faces or an arm over the shoulder or Dino pulling Hibari close, it's obvious what kind of relationship they have without having to be too much about it. Plus, there are also some really nice sketches of the rest of the series' characters in the other parts of the gallery! So, basically, the site starts out a little rough, but I recommend sticking with it because it has some super fantastic stuff to be found eventually. *___* (Dino/Hibari, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - pack [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - There is not nearly as much art as I would like here (well, there are a lot of doodles and sketches, but I tended to skim over those) and normally I would have just wandered off, but this artist... there are a small handful of images that are just amazing here. There's one of Spanner, which is the first one that I clicked on, that was just so fully realized and lush in details and colors that I had to cave and rec the site. There are a few more illustrations somewhat like that--usually of Tsuna or Hibari or Spanner again--that make the site worthwhile. And, wow, what I wouldn't do for her D18 doujinshi. *__* There's not much of them on the site, but I imagine her art would be gorgeous. (Maybe some yaoi pairings, but no real themes to pin down.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - .........as;dlfkjaslkj this site knows all my horrible, horrible weaknesses. Hot Dino fanart with his shirt off and tattoosssssss? Dino and Hibari in the bath together with pretty coloring? Stylized chibi-esque art? Hibari in a schoolgirl outfit, looking a surprisingly normal level of pissed? Halloween Hibari with bat wings in a creepy pumpkin patch? Crazy pairing fanart with Hibari/Gokudera? as;dlfkja;lskjljsk it's like this artist is striking at every single fanart weakness I have! It's not perfect art, but it's really cute stuff and there's a lot of really pretty stuff and just... it hits the kinks that fanart has made me develop so hard. a;lsdkfjalskjs so, so much fun. *__* Especially schoolgirl!Hibari with the wind dramatically blowing clothes and hair and an arm of Kusakabes right behind him. a;sldkfja;lskjlskj I thought it was ace. XDDD (Some Dino/Hibari, some Hibari/other, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - This is another one of those sites where I wasn't sure what to think of the artist's work until I started going through the REBORN! art and clicking on the images at full size, which is when I started to see the really clean, smooth, awesome lines that went into the images. The colors also got prettier and prettier, I mean asl;dkfja;lskjlakjes HBD1 is just beautiful for all the colors in it and I cannot pick a favorite character in that one, each of them looks so fantastic. And, yeah, okay, the artist also does occasional D18, so, you know, I'm weak. But even without that, the art here is fantastic, absolutely worth checking out by pretty much anyone who is a fan of the series. *___* (No real pairing themes, occasional yaoi pairings, but none that are consistent, and it's mostly gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Site ] - Another site that I wasn't sure what I was going to get into at first, but--! I am also weak to the CG art! Especially when the colors are so vivid, omg. And you can really see the progress in the artist from even just half a year ago and I kind of really want to see where this artist could go in another six months. It's not my usual pairings--there's a lot of Mukuro/Tsuna and a fair amount of Yamamoto/Gokudera, I'd say--but one of the really nice things is that the artist got a wide variety going, so even if those two aren't your thing, there's bound to be something else you'll like--for me, it was the D18 art that made me pretty gleeful, but the Hawaiian Xanxus/Squalo image or the Hibari standalone or the Mukuro portrait or the Halloween Mukuro/Tsuna were all seriously fantastic. I really want to see more from this artist, no matter what pairings are drawn, which I think says a lot. XD (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other yaoi, some gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - MKO [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I originally came to this site for the Tales fanart, but saw the artist had REBORN! art as well and had to eventually wander over. When I first started clicking through the site, I expected it to be pure Varia focused, maybe Xanxus/Squalo-only. But the first few clicks into the gallery got me some various characters--an adorable one of Gokudera and cat, a pretty one of Hibari, etc.--and, yeah, most of the rest of the site was about the Varia, but it was a nice, solid little site. The log section is really fun, more variety there and the artist shows off the prettypretty artwork she's capable of and it was just... fun. <3 (No warnings/pairings.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - phenomenon [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - It took me a bit to figure out how to properly navigate my way around this site, but it was totally worth it, because it has some really stunning art on it. *__* I originally came here for the Gundam 00 art, but there wasn't quite enough to justify a rec for it, but I'd seen the blog section and there was a really solid lineart of Gokudera and Bianchi on it, so I was curious what the rest of the KHR art would look like. I'm super, super glad to have stumbled across it because the first page of art has a bunch of Gokudera/Tsuna illustrations on it and then there's pages with a wide variety of characters and it's all this really sharp art style that's very polished and clean to look at. And, oh, man, there are certain illustrations I would recommed the site for alone (Gokudera with Uri on his head, a really gorgeous one of Yamamoto and Squalo, some amazing group images, etc.) but overall the site is a really, really good one. ♥ (A smidge of pairings like Gokudera/Tsuna, but it's mostly gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Out of Tune [Japanese Fanart Site ] - I'm not sure this site is going to be for everyone, I'm not even sure it would have been a site I was personally interested in, except... I dunno, the colors really caught my attention. They're the bright, vivid kind that I'm so weak to--there are times when Chrome's eye seems to practically glow right off the screen. The lineart gets really pretty good with the later illustrations as well and it's nice to find a Mukuro/Chrome site sometimes, since I don't see a lot of them and you can really tell how fond the artist is of these characters. Plus, okay. There are a couple of Hibari/Chrome illustrations tucked away in the galleries as well and I'm weak okay. :| Also! Squalo and Chrome! Bel and Chrome! Super adorable I-Pin! A smidge of Hibari/I-Pin! The site is totally designed to take me down, okay. XD (Some gen, some Mukuro/Chrome, a bit of other het.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ English Fanart Post ] - I only clicked on this link because I was idly browsing my flist and was curious about the art and started skimming and then... I got to about the third illustration down, where the artist had drawn Chrome and she looked amazing. After that, the artist's style got pretty much stunning, the CG style and bright, clean, vibrant colors and tremendous lines that keep the spirit of Amano's manga and yet are also the artist's own are just. a s;dfljkas;lkjaslkj oh man. The last two are especially amazing--Gokudera with the bombs, then a beautiful one of I-Pin mid-fighting pose--and just. I want mooooore. *__* (One Gokudera/Tsuna image, but the rest are gen.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I actually came here while on a Dissidia fanart hunt, but wound up getting distracted by all the KHR art on the site. I'm not sure if it's just that I hadn't had much of it for awhile or I was just really in the right mood, but this site struck me pretty well. It's not perfect, but it's got a certain charm that really appealed to me, it was fun going through the images! And every once in awhile the artist would do something really nice (there's a super pretty one of Gokudera and a really hot Hibari one, too) that made the whole thing worthwhile. (No real warnings/pairings.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - moira [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - What I said about this site for it's Gundam 00 art (especially that I suspect it might be a re-rec) also holds true here. Soft, pretty colors, especially the lighter and darker tones of purple, work well for the characters, especially Mukuro. Which is why, despite that there's not really much more than a handful of art here, I had to recommend it. The artist really does a stunning Mukuro that's worth visiting the site just for him. *__* (No warnings/pairings.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually browsing around for Host Club art and wound up stumbling over this site. I almost skipped over the KHR art simply because I wasn't in the mood and it didn't immediately strike me. But, well. It's Dino. I'm weak to Dino art. So I kept going and I'm really glad I did. Some of the early art is a little shakey, but when you get into the b&w sketches and really look at the artist's lines, she has a really pretty style--to the point that I think I wound up preferring the b&w sketches and comics more than the colored art. ...well, except for the one where Dino's using his jacket to shelter him and Hibari from the rain and Hibari is totally thrilled by it, really, that one was pretty great. But the comics are adorable and some of the recent stuff got to be really pretty and that's all I ask out of a site. <3 (Some Dino/Hibari, mostly gen, though.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I originally came here in search of Dissidia art, but there really wasn't enough to justify a rec and then I got distracted by the KHR section anyway. I didn't intend to stay here long, I was just clicking on random entries in the gallery and seeing if anything would catch my eye when... I don't know how to describe it, but somehow the site caught me. I think it's a combination of really cute oekaki art (and a really good amount of it!) and super pretty coloring on the regular illustrations. It's that type of super-skinny characters that I can take or leave, depending on the artist, but it works here. The later you get into the gallery, the better the art gets, and I always love that, I like seeing how an artist improves, but it's also... man, the more I went through this artist's work, the more completely cracked out pairings I came across. I love that. It's mainly a Mukuro/Tsuna site, but seriously. I think I saw Mukuro and Lambo art. XDb (Some gen, some Mukuro/Tsuna, some other. Occasional Mukuro/Hibari, Hibari/Tsuna.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I dunno how many people this site will appeal to, but... well. Chibis. I love the kind of ridiculous amounts. And this artist does kind of amazing chibis with Xanxus and Squalo, the colors are bright and vivid, but it's more that they're also kind of super hilarious. I'm not quite as fond of her regular sized illustrations, but she certainly has a polished, stylized look to them that grew on me a lot and even the sketches are kind of great. I really, really liked this site and there was quite a lot of art and some it really sent me over the moon, that's more than good enough for me. ♥ And, okay, the rest of the site isn't as big as the Xanxus/Squalo section, there are some great chibis there as well, some really pretty stuff and it's worth a trip through for them as well. ♥ (Xanxus/Squalo, some gen of them individually. Some gen of the other characters.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I was actually on a hunt for Suikoden Tierkreis art and happened to stumble over the KHR section. I was curious enough to click and then found Gokudera/Tsuna art and it'd been awhile and... I just didn't quite wander away until I'd seen everything. I imagine this is going to be for the more hardcore art junkies/pairing fans, since the art does start out kind of rough. But the artist improves a lot over the course of the gallery and she makes the style work for her and, hell, about halfway through she starts getting pretty polished. Her lines and colors smooth out and her most recent stuff is really kind of lovely--she's got this fantastic Yamamoto piece and then an ADORABLE group pile hug and I just wound up really happy with this site. <3 (Gokudera/Tsuna, some gen if you step lightly.)


- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This is another site where I was looking for Suikoden Tierkreis art and somehow managed to stumble over a KHR site. The current top illustration was an intriguing looking one of Hibari, so I thought, what the hell, I'll click through the gallery. I'm really glad I did because this artist does some amazing detail and sharp lines in her images--she doesn't even really need color because there's so much already packed into these images. There didn't even need to be a lot of them to catch my attention, there's probably only a dozen or so in the main gallery, but I hardly noticed because I could really take my time with this gallery. And I love the focus on Hibari, Tsuna, and Mukuro's characters, the artist does a tremendous job with each of them. (Some Mukuro/Tsuna, some Hibari/Tsuna, some Yamamoto/Chrome, some gen.)
