A note from hobbit: "Once again my thanks go out to all who have voted for me, I am very honoured by this and can't thank everyone enough. 2001 was a very busy and successful year for me, most of which would not have been possible without the support and exposure Renderosity offers. I would like to wish everyone a happy and successful new year. Maybe this year I will get to those tutorials I promised :)' Again thank you everyone and happy rendering and painting for 2002. Andy"

Congratulations, Hobbit. :-) May we wish ALL of the competitors a round of well-earned and deserved applause, too. While a contest requires one winner, I think it was too difficult to pick just one. There were some tremendously talented folks this year! My hat's off to each and every one of them.
