FanArt Links (IY)

I receive regular emails from readers letting me know that the art links on my profile are broken. Frustrating, I know. Way back when I created that compilation, the site allowed exterior linking. Now, they do not. So I’m moving the list here.

Two things: 1) Several of these pieces may now be in storage or removed from dA. If you really want to see a missing piece, let me know in comments, and I’ll see if the art’s lurking on my hard drive. I plan to do the odd art!post anyhow. 2) This list is no longer complete. (Not by any stretch of the imagination, since it was last updated in 2011.) I do try to favorite fanart for my stories on dA, and there are two fan clubs for my stories on dA. Links below.

forthrightly on dA – If you want to see the very newest story illustrations that have come to my attention, I invite you to look at my Favorites Page over on deviantArt.

Unspoiled-FanClub! If you’re a member of deviantART, you’re invited to check out the brand new community established by Sugar0o for my story: Unspoiled-FanClub.

Forthright-FanClub! Also for members of deviantART, there’s now a community for art from all of my stories! Watch, join, and add to Forthright-FanClub.

And while I have you here, a message to everyone who has ever given me gasps, giggles, and giddy moments by turning my words into pictures. I’m honored, flattered, and most pleased. You put a twinkle in my eye. Thank you!

  1. Pingback: FanArt: Unspoiled – FORTHRIGHT

  2. I really love the style of forthright’s writing. It’s just plain beautiful. However, the SessKag pairing just…..doesn’t sit well with me. :-/ I really, really tried to get into and it just never worked.

    I really liked her series of Sesshomaru-Miroku friendship drabbles. Tolerable, Vassal, etc.
