Traditional Art Favorites of 2010!

Sat Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM
Another year is over and it's time for my annual art feature of works submitted in 2010!
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

Beautiful, highly skilled artworks to be sure. However so many of these are tributes to commercial texts. THere is a lot of America there. House, Supernatural, Avatar, Pirates of the Carribean, Alice in Wonderlands, Star Wars and the British Story Harry Potter that has been produced in film (And the film characters are depicted) by an American studio.
Of Course, the US has given the world some amazing pieces of work, and many great films, celebrated works of literature, but that's not really the point.
THe point is this art reflects our commercialised world, and even though the art is obviously highly skilled and produced by some terrific artists, it's missing that original quality in many cases.
But THankyou for an interesting collection.

Heheh well, it's hard to resist to not to feature some fanart too of movies/Tv shows/books you like. Also it's hard to resist creating fanart of something you like very much, but I get your point. At least this year I tried to feature no more than 50% of fanart & celebrities. Who knows what will be the next year :)

I agree, and fanart is a wonderful thing. What really bothers me is that the majority of it is inspired by texts that are produced in the US.Either that or anime, at least on DA. Good on you, I enjoyed looking at the great drawings.

Oh, don't be like that. Actually, I was considering a feature of some of your works but none of them was uploaded in 2020 :D

AthenaTT Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
...? What? I'm sorry, I don't understand, don't be like what? Inspired? I'm hugely inspired by what I see here. Normally I just do commissions of faces; quick sketches, no background, that kind of thing. It would be so awesome to do a real drawing, with a background and everything :w00t: I have a goal to do something as good as what I see here for 2011! Isn't that a good goal..?

Yeah, there's hardly any paintings, but you should understand this is just one person's picks of kind of art the interest me the most. I don't browse category of traditional art paintings, only digital ones because I'm not that interested in them but when ever I see a painting that catches my eye I make sure to fave it, comment, feature :)

These are all very well crafted but it makes me a little sad that generally what you consider to be the 'best' traditional art of DA is a well rendered copy of a photograph.
