    Thank you all so much for voting for me!!!

    Uhm...I have to admit, I was not expecting to get an award at all this year in this category. Didn't like most of my own pieces from 2012 and I don't consider myself as good as you all are.....so 14th place makes me more than happy...especially with that many brilliant artists around.

    I, too, need a pencil, a lot of paper and my earlier votes to decided who's my Best Artist of the Year. My top 5 this year were Zugma, Jennilou, Bre, Aureola & Sunnywill.


    @Jenni Lou: Your 4th Really? Awwwwwe Thank you!

    Edit: I'm so shocked, I totally forgot to congratulate all the other winners Well...Congratulations to all the other well-deserved winners XD

    Well no surprises there
    Zugma, Aureola, Jenni, Sayjay, JJ, it all feels quite in order here!

    Congrats Zugma (My Top 1) for all that quality art, you remind us all everytime why there's "art" in "fanart".

    Congrats Jenni (My Top 2) for delivering amazing and inspirational art everytime, you're like our fulltime job muse for a lot of years now!

    Congrats Aureola (My Top 3) for making art always so different and truly spectacular, you're the queen of white canvas, no one will argue on that.

    Elle, Erin, JJ, Sunnywill, Destiny, Sayjay, Firecracker, the rest of my Top 10, you had such gorgeous pieces, congrats to you all!

    And a little shout-out to Brendan and Stacy, cause your art grew so much here, and it's so deserving for you to get all the awards you got tonight!!!

    And finally, Sayjay, I wish I could take all the "Thank You" ever pronounced in the world since the dawn of time, combine them and give you one big fat "Thank You", to tell you how much what you do here is just so appreciated.
    You rock, you rule, you shine, you fly!! I luv you girl!

    Wow, thank you so much, everyone who voted for me! This is my highest placement yet, and outside of placements, I was super happy with my nominations for this event and with the fact that I entered almost every category, which I've never been close to before. (part of that mostly due to the fact that we had specific show categories before haha.)

    Super congrats to everyone who place, and even those who didn't place. Aside from the top (awesome) ladies, outside of my placements, some of my favorite artists looking back:

    Ehlwyen, my queen, my inspiration - she always is great at telling a story imo. And scenic pieces always have a personal touch. And her interpretations are just so amazing and thoughtful and smart.

    Nina always inspires me to try new things. She always has such clean style and just looking at her art, I always feel she's super clever.

    Demetreas, I've admired your work for a long time. There's something about the overall finish, the feel of your pieces that I love and never quite figured out how to get.

    Every time I opened one of Elle's pieces, I was blown away.

    Also not to be forgotten, Amber, Bre, Sunnywill, destiny, sayjay, mara.

    and I mentioned it in another thread, but I found Sophie's work to be a delight to see when I was voting. after that, i'm definitely looking out for more!

    I could go on about everybody, but honestly, I can't say it any better than any of you have!

    I'm so flattered to hold onto the 6th Best Artist of the Year Award for 2 years in a row!



    Thank you so much to everyone that voted!!! This award means the world to me and I'm so very glad you all have enjoyed my work in the past years as I seem to make so little of it these days. You all inspire me, and I can only hope I can do the same for you!

    I'd like to extend my shout outs to the ever dominating Zugma, Aureola, Jenni Lou, Bre, and JJ! Your work is perfection and make me strive to do better in my own art. I am constantly jealous that I don't possess your skills. and I bow before all of you!

    So far I've only been in this thread and the Best Wallpaper of 2012 thread and I'm just like Thanks for all of the shoutouts you guys. And for apparently voting for me enough times to get a best artist award. I guess I have a few more threads to see before I notice the impact I've made.

    I'm in the top 10.... and tied with a master of light: Elle. And some really kind things said in this thread. Thank you! (Also awesome award!)

    I can't say I've not the same top 5, only the order is slightly different.

    Zugma was number 1 on my list because she is all round the best photoshop artist that I know. Her stuff looks always good but every single one of them has an unique concept and look. And her work always looks so smooth and clean, no small mistakes or hiding an imperfection under a texture. Her work is fantastic and she really deserves to win best artist.

    My second place was for JJ, she has such a unique own style. And her wallpapers have always great coloring, beautiful lighting and her talent for composition.
    Also I love how she often picks things to art that others don't art; a ballet or a movie like 'Stardust'.

    And Jenni Lou was also third on my list, because I still don't know how she does it.... but those wallpapers with a billion caps. How is that even possible? Also her art always looks flawless, no blending mistakes (despite the many pictures) always daring coloring (harsh and full colors) and still no pixel, no noise. And also every wallpaper looks unique, I always love that about JL's work...



    And I wanted to do a shout-out to Buffylover who ended number 7 on my list, mostly because I felt others did more diverse work and showed more. But I love how he makes his own resources every single time for his wallpapers and also the most concepts are very daring and personal. I hope he finds more time to do art again, because his art is truly one of a kind.

    OH-MY-GOD.
    First of all, congrats to every single one of you guys, all of the awards are so, so well deserved and I had such a hard time deciding on my votes Well, I also have to thank Zugma for making every category that tiny bit easier for me, because she always takes care of the first place I really hope you never ever stop with fanart, because I'm like a little kid at christmas every time I see you have an art update. And also, for purely selfish reasons - LOKI!!!

    I'm also super happy to see Sharonalee, Sunny, Leca and Bre You guys are amazing Also Nina, Clement and Buffylover (I completely agree with Nina on this - I wish you'd do more art, it's so unique every single time) and the rock stars - Erin Nicole, Jenni Lou, Sayjay, JJ, Holypotatoes... and Sophie, who I'd love to see around some more so much! I feel like I keep forgetting names, I go back and every time I realised I missed someone (Lyri and Mara! Elle! ) - it was so much fun with you guys this year and I hope that we keep this arting thing going for a long, long time

    And of course - thanks to all of you who voted for me, I still don't really believe that I would score number 7 among all of you guys

    In the end, we all are who we are, no matter how much we may appear to have changed.

    No Way! I got 11th!!!! thank you so much for voting for me xD and congrats to all the other winners!!! I can't believe I'm up there with you talented people.

    I found this one so hard to vote for I changed my votes like 20 times I just couldn't fit everyone in so congrats to everyone who didn't place because all the artwork was phenomenon this year, I'm sure I wasn't the only one having difficulty picking only 15 to vote for.

    my top five were, the "we're not worthy" Zugma, Aureola, SayJay, Bre and Sharonalee

    But I can't believe some of the amazing work that came out of the last two years the new ideas, the great cross over work, and the skill that was shown in this year's ceremony was just mind blowing.

    aww thanks JJ you are too kind! p.s. I call it the I have no more gradients left it must be finished look lol. but I wish I had your vision and ideas, I love the composition of your work and the use of colours each one is so unique and brilliant.

    I have no idea what I did to deserve this, not just the FIRST PLACE (OMG!) but the shower of loveliest comments. I think it's got to be something in my previous life. Also I had several hours to think of a response to this, and I am still too stunned and on the verge of crying Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    (But seriously, all of you guys grew up and evolved so much during last couple of years, while I mostly played with same old things - I don't feel I made half of your progress!!)

    My top 10 were Jenni Lou, JJ, Aureola, Destiny, Erin Nicole, Sayjay, Nina, Buffylover, Holypotatoes, and Ehlwyen. I, too, had to use a pen and piece of paper to count and decide... and I still ended up torn and unhappy because I LOVED THE OTHER ARTISTS TOO and wanted to vote for them as well. %( I really wished it had been possible to give same amount of points at least to two artists at once!

    For me, fanart is quite a big part of my life - my favorite hobby and creative outlet and even a kind of therapy, I guess. But I don't just mean making it; seeing beautiful fanart is, for me, one of the biggest delights. So I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you guys for creating this amazing creative, inspiring enviroment, for sharing your talent and your work and just making the internet a place worth going to! You are awesome and you make my days.

    And, of course, thank you Sayjay for my stylish award!
