PRO/ADVANCED WINNER -Corinne Vuillemin


Why it won:

We are excited to see you participate in the CPM Challenges each month and was thrilled that you excelled this time around to garner a win! One of the best things about this artwork is the marbled rock. It's always interesting when something like this steals a little bit of the show but it's just great! The proportions of the wolves were perfect and the greenery of the background added an element of difficulty and completeness to the artwork. One critique is  - perhaps some added depth to the fur and we would have liked to see a little bit more room around the entire boarder, especially in front of the standing wolf would have been nice. Great job and congratulations on this win!

BEGINNER/STUDENT WINNER - Mario De Zutter


Why it won:

Creating a predominantly white, main subject when working with colored pencils is always a challenge.
We loved the warm tones that you pulled into this piece, not only in the creamy fur but also in the reds of the background.  You were able to get a beautiful crisp outline pulling out each piece of fur and whisker. We also loved your composition and thought the extended space in front of the standing wolf allowed some breathing room for the viewer. Other points of interest included, those amazing eyes on the on-looking wolf, as well as the tufts inside ears, and details under the belly. Critique would be - a little more definition between the wolves and to continue to grow in your fur techniques to include a little more depth. Wonderful beginner/student entry, I look forward to seeing you become a pro artist in no time!
