Oh boy, oh boy... There's too many "best artistic pieces" in One Piece.... I nominate so I nominate this one:
I nominate this page:
from Nurarihyon no Mago. It's definitely one of, if not the best / most artistic manga page I've ever seen. It's the best fusion of manga style and traditional Japanese art.

I nominate this double spread from Tokko:
I don't really know why I nominate this: the sadness in her eyes, her hotness, the chains, the details in her clothing, the shadow/light effects ...

So realistic yet so manga-like, the whole objective of the manga in one page. Shinmen Takezo (Musashi) vs Sasaki Kojiro. The greatness behind this scene can only be fully felt and enjoyed by someone who loves Vagabond as I do.
p.s. sorry for the poor quality.
I nominate Hajime no Ippo. Douplepage - Takamuras critical punch on Hawk.
I don't read Kokou no Hito....but wow...that page looks stunning...

HXH that page was amazing. Kokou no Hito certainly takes the cake for best group image but not impact which HXH has in its spread. Thanks to that image I'll be sure to check out Kokou no Hito.
Are we voting for the best artistic piece or for the meaning behind an artistic piece ?
Because, from an artistic point of view, when I see the "Panel" from One piece being nominated, I'm laughing my ass off.

Yeah the nominees are not really appealing this year. I feel there was much better choice than these ones in the nominations. Maybe we should let the choice to a jury made of our artist contest winners next time.
i vote for the doublespread from Naruto
the page from kokoe no hito was really well drawn too...but it was a sort of a posing panel, and i'm generally underwhelmed by those. the choices of doublespreads from both HxH and one piece kinda disappointed me, i know for sure that HxH has better panels than that. Not that the double spread was bad, the arrangement of panels was quite good...but the placement of the jakcel like ant ruined it as an artistic piece imo.

Artistically,only HunterxHunter's spread interests me,even though,as assher already mentioned,it's kinda ruined by that crippled ant.The One Piece pieces look meh.The spread from Kokou no Hito looks amazing,but it's just boring.Similiar to the spreads from Bleach,where they're just standing around.The Naruto spread is quite epic as well,but kinda crowded.Having lots of details is one thing,but using them correctly is another thing.However,I guess it's still the best among the rest.
