Traditional Art Favorites of 2011!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2011, 1:28 PM
:iconnewyearplz:


Another year is over and it's time for my annual art feature of works submitted in 2011!
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 combination 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

Sorry I'm a bit late. I've been working my ass off over New Year's and I haven't been on the interwebs in over a week. It feels like I've been away for years!

:tighthug: I even suggested it as DD! ...but I don't think they will ever feature it, it's been too long and no word. :crying:

Really? Om my God, you're so sweet :squee: Thank you for that! I believe it's because it's 1) realistic fan art, which rarely gets a DD 2) one can receive a DD after 3 months of break [I got my previous/first in August, so not such a long time ago]. But thank you, sweetheart, that was very kind of you :iconcocoglompplz:
