ADVANCED WINNER - Sung Choi

WHY IT WON:

Wow, this is just stunning and really is a testament to what colored pencils are capable of. Your textures are really outstanding, from the wood, to the pulp, to the glass, and even the terry cloth towel. You can practically taste the juice! Other areas of note is how you handled the reflections on the knife and plate. Your subtle shadows really pull the items off the paper and lend a depth that creates a remarkable effect for the viewer. Lastly, I have to mention how amazed we were that you even get the moisture on the cutting board spot on. The only “weak” area I could find would be perhaps in the wood grain of the cutting board towards the back – and that is only because I am looking for something to tell me that this is a drawing! Thank you for your submission, what a pleasure to view this fabulous piece!

BEGINNER WINNER - Amis   

WHY IT WON:
I love the tone of this piece first of all, it has a quality that lets you know right off the bat that this is no photograph – although it has the realism of one. The detail across the whole work is stunning but I have to say my favorite part isn’t the fruit but the additions – the plate, knife and glass – that made all the difference! One area that could be improved upon would be the towel – I know this was a struggle for many but lacked the same believability as the rest of the elements. Fantastic job and I hope to see more . . . perhaps in the Advanced category next time!
