We had some awesome entries for Fanart Friday Feb 2021, so we’ve decided to add a blog for a closer look!
First up here is this month’s Fanart Friday Feb 2021 video
The theme for Fanart Friday Feb 2021 is (perhaps a bit predictably Valentines Day and all) love. Now as we say in the video, love isn’t just for couples, it’s also about friends, family and taking care of yourself too. That being said, here’s a few items we’ve picked out for you.
The couch gag
So what does this opening sequence by Simpsonised Me have to do with love? Well…uh I love it. I love The Simpsons. Oh and also a shoutout to The Simpsons Theory, a channel I love. Umm…excuse me, I’m needed in the basement…
And also it’s an intro, the couch gag introduced the show so it works. Kind of. Anyhoo, moving on…
I love this one, it’s sweet
Timemaster1320 has done some great artwork for us and I must admit I am a sucker for seeing the characters in cosplay, this one was a fun concept.
I call this one “Power Couple”, Matigool has a great style and it was a fantastic addition to the video
Aww, this one is just really romantic. Top stuff!
Like we said before, it’s not just about couples, I just really love this mini strip and Kendall Collins’ Pri is just an adorable character.
This picture was one we kept back as a surprise. Shaneoid77 is worth following for his fab fanart and original characters and he brings his own style to the characters.
Super shoutout to Jed Soriano who is going through a tough time right now. He’s been very supportive of us and just want to wish him well!
RayeRayeChan’s channel on Twitch is fun, but she’s also an awesome cosplayer (did a great Wondervixen for us) and this piece of fanart has a great romantic, almost classical feel to it.
Van Hikari has been a regular supporter and very generously donated to get a GreyofPTA commission. In this one, his OC has to deal with the advances of the villain Insect Girl, who let’s just say has an odd way of showing affection!
Fanart Friday Feb 2021 bonus pics
We had a couple more artworks that came in for Fanart Friday so decided to give them a little extra exposure here.
I will be reviewing Wandavision when the series is done, fantastic thumbnail art by Susie Gander here.
Last on this list but definitely not least, it’s one that I’ve been planning for a while- this one is by the very talented Metalpandora who has done a lot of great art but a lot of people know for her pics of Sally Acorn from Sonic The Hedgehog.
Now, people who know me also know that I grew up with this cartoon. It is great seeing the character rocking Sal’s costume and the artwork is superb. If you get the chance recommend giving her a commission.
This also sets up next month’s Fanart Friday and that theme will be “variants.”
What do I mean by variants? Well for example you get variant covers, where someone does their version of an existing cover. I also include original characters dressing up as the Reynard City characters in that, alternate versions of Reynard City characters, mock up posters, cosplay and so forth.
If you need some inspiration, here are a few examples
Cosplay commission wanted
If you didn’t see our cosplay commission blog just a quick headsup- we are looking for people to do Reynard City cosplays and especially characters that haven’t been covered yet like Insect Girl, Caramel Girl, Perfect Platinum, Mega Fox and Warp King. If you are interested please get in touch (here are a few examples!)
Please support our team
So we’re nearly at the end of this Fanart Friday Feb 2021 blog. The last thing I need to mention is a big thank you to the artists and supporters who make this comic happen.
Remember- there are lots of ways you can support us, including our issue 4 cameo package. Rev701 has generously taken the first slot, there are three left (available through Patreon, Ko-Fi or Paypal, message me for more info)
There are lots of ways to support us, so we put them all in this link page
Last night we had an additional boost as local Norwich pizza company Fat Fox Pizza Den have included our stickers on their pizza boxes, so if you order one of their gorgeous pizzas you also get a bonus. If you’re outside Norwich don’t worry, you can get your own sticker set through our Ko-Fi shop page.
Can’t say this enough- I love seeing all your art, don’t forget if you post something either tag us in it or use #reynardcity and #fanartfriday to be included (or email firstname.lastname@example.org /use the form)
Please take a moment to check out our special thanks playlist and support all the awesome people that make this project happen, looking forward to your variant art next month!
