Today I thought I’d dig up some Avengers fanart for our guest snarker Kate. As you might imagine with such a large fandom, the quality of the work varies considerably. There is also a vast array of shipped couples, some of which had me scratching my head. (Loki/Loki yaoi – really, people? Narcissism doesn’t work that way.) Since the main canon character in Kate’s fic is Loki, I’ve decided to showcase some Loki fanart. (I also really like typing the word “Loki” over and over again.) And I’ve found some stunners.
The artist has an amazing portfolio, much of it fanart and all of it stunning.
Bonus image for those who click through!
Taco found this little treasure over on etsy, the ‘net’s home for all things handmade. While some may argue that it’s not technically fanart, it is frickin’ adorable so we’re putting it up as fanart. The artist offering up this felt flyer also has several other plushies in her store, including a super-awesome Loki complete with helmet-horn things.
And since I couldn’t help but browse around her shop, here’s a bonus Joker.
This one’s pretty cool – it’s a fan-made post for one of my favorite movies. The artist has some really neat stuff in his portfolio, most have a similar retro look to them.
From the same artist that made the steampunk Cylon, it’s a Dalek!
This one is a little different from the usual fanart we post, but I think it’s all kinds of awesome.
It really doesn’t look all that spectacular until you realize what those frilly things at the bottom of each image are – those are the artist’s eyelashes. She paints tiny scenes on her eyelids. Do me a favor – touch your eyelid right now. Not a lot of room, is there? Now try to imagine painting a detailed scene on that thin patch of skin that is in constant motion from the eye underneath.
I can barely manage eyeliner without poking myself in the eye, and this woman is painting entire scenes on her face.
Still not impressed? How about a pirate ship?
