Well alright then! You nice folks have said with overwhelming amounts of "Yerp" that you would like for these awards to happen... So!

I've decided on roughly 15 different types of awards to be given out at the time of our choosing. Most will be related to a certain art medium, but some based on certain other aspects of the artwork.

So! Some confirmed awards I've thought of and decided they were good enough.

:bulletgreen: Best Digital Artist- Goes to the digital artist who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field

:bulletgreen: Best Traditional Artist- Goes to the traditional artist who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field

:bulletgreen: Best Cosplay Artist- Goes to the cosplayer who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field

:bulletgreen: Best Photographer- Goes to the photographer who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field.
NOTE: These will most likely be the photographers of cosplayers who show the most adept editing skills and whatnot.

:bulletgreen: Best Prop Creator- Goes to the prop creator who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field
NOTE: This refers to those who create those odd little cube Pokemon or random items from games and such. Mixed media arts, like sculpting, come under this title as well.

:bulletgreen: Best Modelling Artist- Goes to the modelling artist who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field.
NOTE: This refers to those who use Garry's Mod, SFM or XNALARA (or similar medium) to create their art.

:bulletgreen: Best Animator-  Goes to the animator who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field.

:bulletgreen: Best Emotional Artist- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, shown and reflected upon emotions in their artwork.

:bulletgreen: Best Developer- Goes to the developer who has, in the past year, has displayed the most skill in their field.

:bulletgreen: Best Pixel Artist- Goes to the pixel artist who has, in the past year, has displayed the most skill in their field.

:bulletgreen: Best Concept Artist- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, shown the most interesting concept for a video game through their work.

:bulletgreen: Best Writer- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, displayed the most skill in their field.

:bulletgreen: Best Comedic Artist- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, shown immense amounts of legitimate comedy through their work.

:bulletgreen: Best Unique Artist- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, shown a new and unique art style of their choice in their work.

:bulletgreen: Best Narrative Artist- Goes to the artist who has, in the past year, shown the most interesting story/back story for their art pieces.

Well, those are all the confirmed ones, so now allow me to make an announcement.

We would like to commission an artist who could create a graphic for these awards. These awards would be made as a default shell and then given personal touches later, such as what field it belongs to and who has been given said award.  

I would like to get one of those rather odd spinning 3D pixel models for the reward, but technically anything is fine so long as it's smooth and easy to paste on someone's page. If interested, feel free to contact us with commission info. It can be in the shape of a trophy, badge, etc.


Oh. And this whole art award charade that I've brought to life (hopefully), I think I'll name it, simply, the Gaming Art Awards. Short and sweet.

All nominations must follow the group rules and have been made in the past year. And yes, you may nominate pieces you believe are good enough for any given area.

I plan on holding these, if possible, at the same time as the end of the art contest; mid summer or so. Feel free to note the group or myself with any information~

I would like to include Best Comment or something related to comments but it would be also really hard to include them all =(

It would, but if you'd like I believe that can be achieved at Project-Comment. We focus more on the artistic side, I'm afraid, and that would be rather... difficult. 

Still, good idea, but better suited to the group that already runs such a thing.

Your work falls into Modelling; your art is getting objects in the right place at the right time and saving the result. That's basically the definition for modelling.

Ah. I figured it only applied to those who created the model. Good to know.
