It's not real. It was the 15rh, and I had the bird pictuee. All I needed was the heart. Easy!

Nope.

The things that for years were always the leftovers in the stores were nowhere to be found! 10:00 at night. None at target. None at the grocery store, and my neighbor didn't have any either!

Ok. Time to draw one.

But you don't understand, this is a real stretch (don't laugh! I really am that inept at any artwork!

I got the heart drawn, had the brilliant idea of using the 3D to make it dimensional, didn't save, computer crashed. 11:40pm.

After forever the computer came back up, redrew it, got it in at 11:59. Didn't really look right, but it got in.

When all is said and done, I don't think it really had anything to do with shadows, I think it was really just too pink. When I played with it a little more out of curiosity, it looked more natural when I made it a tad darker.

It was fun that someone thought that it might be real, thought. :)

Oh, bloody hell. So if the stores had had any candy hearts, there wouldn't have been a problem. Damn.

Terrific detail on the feathers - the bird is wonderful and the heart quite acceptable. Congratulations on the HM, Wendy.

I thought this might be yours. And you absolutely can not tell that your heart is not a storebought little candy. You did great! Congratulations!

It's a shame that your computer crashed, I'm sure it would have gotten you a much better score. The bird shot is perfect, as usual :) Congratulations on the nice finish.

Such lovely details in the feathers. I can't believe the intricacies captured. Cute idea and terrific execution.

Ha..good shot but I know you've heard it already...."Oh...Boo hop hoo. It's not good to give hard candy to wild birds. To make matters worse, I think I see a yellow heart further down in the bird's mouth! (Just say it was his tongue!)

If I could vote a 20 - I would...just to offset the environmental vote !

LOL....good luck.

I love this idea! The bluejay is fabulous! The candy looks added... I wish there were shadows to make it look more real.
