Wow were there ever some close calls in Artist Round One. Big internet campaigns for both Jamal Igle and Chris Samnee kept that vote incredibly close, with Samnee squeezing out the upset victory. Yanick Paquette also scored an upset victory, and in another very close call, third seeded Cameron Stewart hung on to victory over the talented Jim Cheung. 16 incredible artists were in these polls, and only 8 can move on, with some truly fierce matchups in this second round.

Remember, you don’t have to be a registered Newsarama reader to participate. EVERYONE can help choose by picking one choice in each of the below brackets.

10 Newsarama contributors submitted their lists for their personal Top 20 in each of the five categories. The results were tabulated using a weighted system that awarded an escalating number points according to how high the nominee appeared on the list - 20th place was worth 1 point, 19th place 2 points ... up to 20 points for 1st place.

The final nominee lists are the top 16 nominees with the highest point totals in each category.

Each bracket is seeded according to point total, with the highest vote-getter in each bracket moving onto the next round.

There will be 4 total rounds for each category (the “Sinister 16”, "Extremis 8", “Fantastic Four” and Finals) eventually resulting in one overall “Favorite of 2010” for each group.

Who are your top artists of the year?
