so, if i'm gonna use the artist tag, the skin has to construct the path in a way like this:
'user supplied music folder' / 'artist tag' / 'extrafanart'

I tried Aeon Nox and it somehow pulls the correct extrafanart for the artist even if it's a compilation album. There is a different option in settings where you specify your music path, I guess they are pulling the path from there or do they have a method for determining the path?

yup, that's what they do.
they use the method i referred to in my previous reply:
'user supplied music folder' / 'artist tag' / 'extrafanart'

Does Aeon Nox need any particular filename for the extra fan art?

not that i'm aware, but you're better ask in the aeon nox support thread.
