    Hey all, with the year rounding out and everyone taking stock of 2010 in the "Best of" lists, I got thinking about having ALL of the various art/creative types on these boards looking over their output in 2010 and posting what THEY thought was the best single piece of art/design/photography/video/music that they did this year, thus creating a "Whitechapel Greatest Hits of 2010" concentrated super-thread.

    I'd say we open it up to all postable forms of entries, ONE per person, picking it because you feel it's your best work, not just because it's your most popular one you've previously posted here. Others may disagree with your choice, but that doesn't matter. It should be YOUR best work according to you. This thread can continue into the new year, but let's keep the entries just from 2010.

    Sound like a plan? I'll start:

    All of the Remake/Remodel threads. Those were just a delight.

    I feel like 2010 was a really good year for me, art wise. At the end of 2009 I did a piece that helped me sort of find my way as an artist, and since then, I finally feel like I can call myself an artist. I've had some bad pieces, but not so much crap as I used to do. (Seems like most of what I've posted to Whitechapel have been bad pieces. My few submissions to the remake/remodel thread are few for a reason.)
    Anyway, here's a piece I'm particularly fond of. My boyfriend asked for one for Christmas, so I'll dust off the keyblock and get going on that once I have access to a printing press again. I'm thinking I'd like to do a second edition with a different background.
    It's called "Woman in Training."

    @-3- Is there a 3d model under there?
    Looks fantastic.

    sadly since I've been so busy with my day job and moving in to a new place, I only got one painting done this year. so I guess this is my best because it's my only finished piece:

    "Platter: Wartime Meat Recipe #26"

    hopefully 2011 will be more fruitful.


    ...eh, no pun intended by the way. :/

    @Fishelle: I'd be real curious to see it with a different background, but it looks like you had a lot of fun with that one.

    @harris-ejaz:
    Yes, i like to use models to get my lighting, but who can pay real ones in this economy? ;)
    I don't want to clutter this with images beyond my one, but you can see the base model render here

    @William Joseph Dunn:
    Thanks for linking to the larger image for closer look - there's a lot of nice little details going on.
    (But don't be afraid to sink your teeth into a good pun)
    ;)

    I took less photos this year than usual due to overwhelming life drama, but of the few I did take, I really dig this one.

    It's not done, but this is probably the best piece of art I've worked on in 2010:

    2010 has been fun. I've been teaching myself to draw this year. I started off really bad. But I've stuck to a routine of about 25 hours of just drawing every week, and you can really see a progression.

    Thusly, this is my favorite piece of 2010 because it's the drawing where I decided I wanted to really work on said skills. This is where I caught the drawering bug:

    @Smileyfish: That photo is incredibly dear.

    Throughout this year I wrote prose and made quite a few illustrations. But the thing I'm proudest of this year are the 149 strips I made for my webcomic PITCH BLACK, because of the discipline and dedication they demanded from me, and the rewarding and encouraging response I got from readers. Of all the strips -- including the incredibly time-consuming special editions with more than eighty panels -- I think this one is my personal favorite:



    Excellent idea for a thread, Paul. There is and there will be some incredible work here.

    Hard for me to pick one this year. I finished the artwork for a short comic, which I'm proud of. There are several others I did for Remake/Remodel that I liked, but I think this is my favorite:

    Nice work everyone, I remember a few of these and am even more impressed this second time around. To choose a best out of the work I did this year would infer that some of it was actually good. Since that is unlikely I'd like to share this video with everyone instead. Most of the animations were made between 2001- 2005 but they have been sitting in a box unedited and without audio for years. Early in the fall I finally took the time to put them together and make an electronic score with a couple of my musician friends. Although the end result is less than fantastic, making the music for this cartoon was by far the most fun and exciting thing I did creatively this year. It was really neat to work with sound rather than ink for a change.
