ADVANCED WINNER - Jan Shilling

WHY IT WON: There were so many amazing submissions this month that it was nearly impossible to pick one. This one helped to stand out above the crowd with the incredible bird addition. It’s not just any bird either – it is the perfect bird – both in color and size, integrating it into the image flawlessly with the interactive pose. The way in which you rendered the background really pulled the branch and berries forward. It is just beautiful – the only critique would be the bottom right leaves look a bit waxy, but this is a stunning piece that I know everyone will ooh and ahh over!

BEGINNER WINNER - Yumika Komatsu
 WHY IT WON:  What a stunning close-up! This is so photo-realistic and really makes you want to reach out an pick a berry off the branch! The red is beautifully bright without over saturating the piece. I love this composition, it is very inviting. There could have been a little more detail in the leaves. Wonderful artwork, I hope we we see more from you!

JUNIOR WINNER - Lucia Halcinova
WHY IT WON: We were pretty amazed that a 12 year old did this – you are certainly talented! The colors that you chose were really quite mature in using deep tones. You did great on the background, which can be very challenging to make it “read” well . The highlights are great but the larger leaf on the left looks a little flat. I would recommend (to everyone) looking at some of the other submissions and try to learn what you could have done differently. That is what makes these challenges so valuable, we can discuss and learn from one another to make us better artists!
