At least as far back as I have been following the Hugo Awards, the nominees have predominately been those artists working with drawing / painting / visual arts of some sort. Not exclusively, but predominately.
Spring Schoenhuth is an artist whose work falls outside of the bounds of what most think about when they consider "fan art", but it is equally worthy of consideration.
Her interpretation of the Maria robot from Metropolis is particularly good.
