Traditional Art Favorites of 2009!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 26, 2009, 5:08 AM
Another year is over and it's time for my annual art feature of works submitted in 2008!
This is both my favorite and the most difficult art feature to make. After
going through thousands and thousands of works you can imagine how hard
it was to pick just some.

Artworks were chosen by different combinations of the following "criteria":
general impression • emotion conveying • meaning of the artwork • pure
awesomeness • idea/concept • originality • complexity • technique •
quality • subject • incredible realism • great style • everything else I
forgot to write
