PRO/ADVANCED - Jan Shilling


Why it won:

Such a pleasure to view this entry, the details are stunning, it looks as though you could reach out and grab a pencil or the hyper-realistic sharpener sitting on the pad of paper.
We loved the variations of shades used in the spotted notebook, it really makes you believe you could feel the texture you created!  The wires on your notebooks really popped out at us and shadows were beautifully done for the whole piece. Thank you for your entry and congratulations on your win!


 BEGINNER/STUDENT WINNER -Janet Ray


Why it won:

We love that you took on the whole challenge and made it your own, the little additions such as the eraser and sticky note were great!
Everything seemed sharp and easy view, not something easily accomplished with this many things going on in close proximity. We really liked how you handled rendering the spotted notebook and metals, such as the spiral wired notebooks and on the paintbrushes, as well as the light and shadows. The only area that we would have liked to see you work on was the cup –perhaps you could burnish it or build up more layers, overall great entry!

PRO/ADVANCED WINNER - Sorina Williams


Why it won:

The reason we felt this was the winning piece was that first of all the likeness is spot-on, you captured her essence with strong emotion, you were creative to add your own unexpected flare to this but the thing that stands out the most is the detail as seen in the realism of the hands. Love all the wispy pieces of hair as well. Once you really start to look at this image you notice all the subtle colors that are used with both warm and cool tones – it’s just beautiful!

 BEGINNER/STUDENT WINNER - Tonya Ohrel


Why it won:

We are so fascinated with how you did this as a “reverse” image, using grey pencils on black paper, for a “black and white” image. I know it was a struggle but the results are breath-taking and I hope you are are as excited with the results as we are! The skin is soft and I have to note the perfection with the pinky (funny how something so small can make such an impact!), while I have to also comment that I think the mole on her forehead needs to be either more defined or eliminated all together. Those eyes and detail in the hair are excellent. I am glad to see you left in the dark circles as I think this give personality and emotion to the overall image. Thank you for your inspiring entry!
