ADVANCED WINNER - Nadia Carre

 
WHY IT WON: There is a special 3D quality that you were able to capture, especially seen in the puppy and bunny feet area. That is remarkable. These stuffed animals all have a unique texture and tone that you were able to successfully convey. One critique would be the background, I think it would have worked better to have made the lines more uniform but we also understand that you were being true to the photo reference which was a sheet instead of wallpaper. 

BEGINNER WINNER - Yasmin Melean

WHY IT WON: Everything about this is charming. We appreciate how you took it upon yourself to add creative elements and personalize this piece while staying true to the original photo reference.
Lots of textures and patterns add a lot of interest to the viewer while not distracting from the subject matter. The characters are well rendered and believably enthralled in the book and you can imagine them turning the page! One critique would be that the anatomy of the bear seems off a little on his right leg and that is a bit distracting as he does not sit as well as the others.

JUNIOR WINNER - Elisia Evanjeline (12 yrs)


WHY IT WON: What a wonderful job you have done and to take on the entire picture is commendable! The proportions are perfect and gives a nice sense of weight to the stuffed animals. We especially like the highlighting that you did and the wallpaper provides the perfect backdrop for these characters. The use of multiple colors in the wood and fur works nicely – just keep working on your textures to take it to the next level!
