Who has won one?

2011 ARTISTS OF THE YEAR RESULTS ARE IN

Artist of The Year : M.S. Feather

Traditional: Project_Worm

Digital: tonis

Color: Raven0207

B&W: ARMIV2 / Madrid_san

Panels: rocketpig

Originality: tonis

Comedy: M.S. Feather

Horror: ARMIV2 / kiss_lamia

SpecialFX: tonis

Most Improved: ARMIV2 / DomDom

well we've gotten a few months under our belt now and I wanted to centralize the information and results into a single thread that's easier to follow.

Here you'll find links to each submission & polling thread for each month as well announcements of monthly winners.

Hopefully, if there's one thread that gets pinned for the showcase it'll be this one.

Although we will be announcing winners for each month on the 15th there's an opportunity at the end of the year to revisit the polls (which NEVER stop tallying) and determine an 'Artist of the Year' for each category as well as the king or queen who manages to score the highest across all criteria.

This means your vote counts in a poll no matter when you get to it. So if you haven't made a choice in one of the months past, add your voice to the choice now ;)

Here are the results so far:

Nice way to keep track!

You really are unbelievably orginized. I don't know how you do it! =)

 

#3 Posted by Shatterstar (4437 posts) - - Show Bio

Great idea- so how will the artist of the year be determined- number months won or total number of votes?

Yeah, I need Tonis to come here to Georgia organize my archives. They are a mess!

 

That is, of course, if Velcro will even let him get close to my stuff.  :D

ah, but only with comics and vine, you don't even wanna try venturing into my storage rooms :D

@Shatterstar said:

That's the BIG one. Total number of votes across all the polls. So the incentive for artists to tackle all mediums should be encouraged. :)
I figure since the polls never actually stop, this is a way to keep them useful, and anyone who might not have voted before can still feel like they're a part of the fun for the big one.

not to worry Roxy, there isn't an animal out there I don't get along with.
I suspect I may be part animal myself :)
You would be proud of my collection organization, with over 7000 books I can still find most anything within minutes.

This is a really cool set-up here. Can't wait to see who the artist of the year is!

you an me both buddy.
All artists should encourage their vine buddies to visit the polls if they haven't and throw their voices in. There'll be plenty of time for them to get there.
The more the merrier. :)

That explains the mystery of the disappearing scotch tape, you've been using it to keep your eyelids open, or maybe giving yourself a face lift.

well originally it was just to keep the eyes open but it did turn out cheaper than plastic surgery :)
I still haven't figured out a good way to keep the brain from going to mush though after 40 hours.

I'd say massaging the head would help, or put an icepack on the top of your head, that should keep the brain cool and prevent it from burning out or melting and oozing out your ears.

that either becomes your 'wall' or 'inspiration'. Just depends on what you wanna do and how much you wanna bang at it ;)

I wouldn't get too caught up in the 'winning' part of it, as long as you feel your 'representing' your already in here.

#34 Posted by ComicCrazy (1537 posts) - - Show Bio

yeah thanks for that Tonis. It doesn't really bring me down I really am just happy to be on that list of artists to me that is pretty big but yeah I spose I just gotta keep practising. Thanks tho.

#35 Posted by TypH (374 posts) - - Show Bio

I just looked back and I just realized that no artist "yet" has won Artist of the Month more than once. That just goes to show that this is anyones game !  
 
I was also thinking about maybe we should come up with some kind of prize for the winner of Artist of the Year. Not sure what but I mean whoever wins that deserves to get something. What do you think Almighty Tonis - Watcher of the Artist Showcase !

#38 Posted by Sky_Jokiel (304 posts) - - Show Bio

hehe, you are the sharp shooter with a radar eh ;)

yea, they'll probably never be duplicate AOM in any given year cause it's not only based on just the votes in the showcase but also the other activity that goes on with said artist in that month did on vine. It's when the 'bonus points' really add up.

I actually thought about a grand prize for the artist of the year back when I was thinking of the contest and the best thing I'd considered fitting would be a year's membership to the Whiskey Suite of entertainment.

How would that sound as the big prize :)

#40 Posted by Raven0207 (1303 posts) - - Show Bio
@tonis: That would work ! I had a additional idea to throw into it but I have to talk to my friend and see if he is up for it !
#41 Posted by tonis (6202 posts) - - Show Bio

I have to say from the moment I first saw her work I was excited by the talent. The showcase results just reaffirmed my thoughts. Big congrats to jennifermontes as the August artist of the month with some beautifully done pieces and to all other participants for such wonderful work. :)
