Paleo Artist of the Century

Who's the best Paleo Artist?
Which medium: Oil, Acrylic, Gouache, Pastel, Pencil, Pen & Ink, Bronze or
Does size count: should the artists who reconstruct dinosaurs in large
paintings be the best, or should it be artists that work in life size
sculpture? What about artist that work in miniature?
How can you determine which artist has the most accurate reconstruction of a
dinosaur when current paleontology theories change daily (tails down, tails
up; feathers yes, feathers no; theropod run slow, theropod run fast,
theropod fall and die).
Appreciation of art is in the minds eye of the beholder. To some the
depiction of a T-Rex ripping off the head of a Lambeosaur is "really neat"
to others, a mother Maiasaur nesting is the only art worth considering.
Judging who's the best artist is like voting on  the best dinosaur. They are
all the "best".
A big vote of thanks should be given to all artist involved in Paleo art
and the enjoyment their art brings to everyone.
