odds & ends

- Katekyou Hitman Reborn - nappy! [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This artist's style is not one I would want to see all of the time, but once in awhile it's really kind of a nice break from all the other fanart I've been inhaling lately. It works especially well with characters like Xanxus and Squalo, the rough, long lines and lack of coloring very fitting for this pairing. Squalo especially looks interesting on this site, I love the way the artist draws his hair. I love how very little on this site seems nice, it's all mean or angry or kinda crazy, which is the perfect tone for these two, especially Squalo. It's also interesting to see the artist's take on the rest of the characters, she got most of the main characters at some point on the oekaki pages, I especially liked her Gokudera. Very cool little site. (Xanxus/Squalo, some gen.)

- 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 ] - This site has some very nice CG-style coloring and designs, which the artist is pretty good at. Maybe not perfect, but I liked the art right from the beginning and it only helped when I got into the Gokudera/Tsuna art, the artist does an especially canon-style Tsuna. However, her group art, especially the one of Hyper Dying Will Tsuna with the Varia in the background looks fantastic. The art only gets better with time and it wound up being a really nice, solid site for the pairing and for Reborn! in general. (Gokudera/Tsuna, Xanxus/Squalo, a smidge of gen.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - TWO LOVERS [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is really not going to be for everyone, I want to stress that ahead of time. It's not even my usual style of art, it's very much the kind where Tsuna could pass for a girl (and often wears dresses) and everything is all cute and sparkly and kinda looks like a shoujo manga. However, if you're like me, I don't mind looking at different styles of fanart sometimes and the artist is really talented, her lines are smooth and clean, her colors are bright and pretty, and I like the way everything sparkles. When I look at this site for the technical aspects, I find I'm really kinda enjoying it, the details on the illustrations are kind of amazing and some of the illustrations are truly gorgeous and Tsuna does look really ridiculously cute! XDDD And, omg, baby!Reborn and older!Reborn and the curly hair and the pretty colors and the really gorgeous little Squalo and I just-- I'm weak to a pretty style, okay? ♥ (Reborn/Tsuna, some Xanxus/Squalo.)

- Katekyou Hitman REBORN! - Hariya [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Yet another Varia site and I'm pleasantly surprised by how many of them I've been stumbling over lately. (Or a Xanxus site with a healthy dose of Squalo and a handful of other characters, I suppose I should say. XD) The art is a little rough early on, but the more current work the artist is doing? That's some damn fine Xanxus art right there. For the most part, the site is rather gen, mostly just stand-alone character illustrations, but the sketches pages have some really hot and beautifully done sketches of Xanxus/Squalo. Mmmm. Poking around a little, you can find the Dino/Xanxus section and the artist does some very hot there as well. Very nice little site and there are even some adorable sprites! (Some gen, some Xanxus/Squalo and Dino/Xanxus.)

- 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! - 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! - [ 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! - 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 know, for all the REBORN! fanart that you can find on devART, there aren't that many accounts (that I've been able to find so far) that have enough art to really rec. But! This one has some really nice Xanxus/Squalo art! Which there always needs to be more of in fandom! There's also one with Bel/Squalo and that is so totally a pet pairing of me, so I would have loved the artist for that anyway. But mostly it's the Xanxus/Squalo, because I am seriously weak to stuff like umbrellas in the rain or lounging around shirtless and the more current you get, the more I like the artist's work. I'd definitely like to see more from her. (Xanxus/Squalo.)

- 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.)
