How do you determine who our selections will be?There are a lot of deserving artists out there who fall under the radar a little but who are nevertheless some of rositys best artists.So,what determines who is selected for us to choose from...I'm not discouraged by any of these choices as I'm familiar with and agree all are great choices,but would like to know how the decision on who ranks is made:)

Everybody's good, but there wasn't as much variety as I was hoping. This became a vote amongst mostly pin-up oriented artists and I wound up voting for the artist who stretched things a bit more than the others.

Wooooow very difficult!!!

You are correct Armorbeast. There are a lot of very deserving artists. It was very difficult to narrow the nominee selection list to just 10. What criteria do the Mods/Admins/Coords use to select their nominations? They are asked to take into consideration the following criteria: -An AOM nominee should have in their gallery a body of work that is created using the software/genre for the month in question. -There should be more than just a sprinkling of that type of image, demonstrating a good foundation in and mastery of the software/genre. -Several elements should be balanced and considered when selecting a nominee -- things like technical expertise, mood, message, design and content should be taken into consideration. -The nominee's gallery should have fairly recent postings to it. (There are quite a few members who are no longer active and therefore no longer available for the follow up interview.) -An artist can only be AOM for one time during the year. Those artists who have won this title during the current year will not be included in the voting for a new AOM. -Moderators, Coordinators and Admins are not eligible for Artist of the Month!

And the overwhelming majority of the images in the galleries are of women. Hum...

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who voted for and nominated me, I am honored. However, I am in the process of withdrawing my name from voting for personal reasons. I would like to extend my deepest and sincerest apologies to all those who voted for me and could have voted for someone else. Thanks again for your support, I truly appreciate it. John

So.. you'd think that I'd catch onto this after a few days.. but it actually took a note from schmoopy to smack some sense into me. I thought to myself.. "Wow.. i'm getting a lot of rosity emails in my inbox.. and a few more notes than normal" but thats where it ended... Lol.. leave it to schmoopy to let me know i was nominated! Thank all of you wonderful people here at renderosity.. you are truely my inspiration. There are so many wonderful artists here.. I've spent years trying to hone my skills and I can't believe I've been nominated for AOM. This is absolutely crazy.. i'm so humbled :) TyTyTy :) Lydian (aka Amanda)

It is very difficult to make a choice among these artists, they all merit having the honor to be elected. I right now have voted, but I tell who. Sometimes it is difficult to elect. I with the heart, I keep wholes.

Giana ( posted at 12:00AM Sat, 05 June 2004

gosh. you'd think those nominated would've been notified prior to their names being put up on the block. how curious that that apparently isn't the case...

sirocco ( posted at 12:00AM Sat, 05 June 2004

A list of GREAT artists - the choice is difficult :-) Good luck every one!

Don't think I can vote in this one. Out of all the artists, 7 are my favourites. I'll leave it up the rest of the community to do the voting!! Good luck to everyone!!

This has to be one of the toughest decisions I've had to make in a long time because several of those who have been nominated are not only fantastic artists, but great friends as well. If I had my way, they would All win AOM....What an amazing list!!!!!

Tough choice! I decided to base my vote on two points: sticking close to Poser - I consider rendering an untextured model with the default lights and then painting in all the rest Mixed Medium or 2D art, not Poser art, and images "out of the ordinary." Valentina.
