PRO/ADVANCED WINNER - Demharter Simone

 

Why it won: 

 

What a stunning piece. The colors are brilliant and the rendering skills that you used were fantastic. One of the favorite areas was actually the mud – a difficult challenge for most. It seems like there is always an unsuspecting element in each piece and to us, this was it and you nailed it. We also loved the right small green leaf and the way it captures the sunlight - really gives you the feeling of these critters coming out after the rain has subsided. Of course we also enamored be your creativity and found it appealing the way you naturally incorporated your additions into the piece with the overlapping leaves, without taking away too much from the reference photo. What a pleasure to view. Hope to see more!


BEGINNER/STUDENT WINNER -Marie-Christine Leblond

 

Why it won:


It’s impossible not to get excited when we first looked at this. Of course the first thing that stands out is how perfect that center frog is and you can imagine these little guys trying to find some dry land or are they taking advantage of the bugs that have been draw out by the humidity? Aside from the additions, the entire piece is a site to behold! The detail on the green leaf is amazing and we were impressed with your restrain to keep the underside of the green leaf light (as it would be in nature) but be so bold with the others. The mud is great and you really give it a sense of depth when you see the little yellow/orange leaf floating in the water at the bottom. Once critique would be on the profile frog – his body is a little weak in comparison to the rest of the image but we love him just the same. Thank you for posting, hope to see more!
