I guess I should have looked back at previous contents. I didn't realize something similar had already been done.

Anyway, this was a printout of the famous Escher drawing that I had photoshoped the other hand out of. I then cut a hole in the drawing for my hand to poke through.

I didn't expect this image to do so well. Thanks for the 4th place finish :)

How neat! MC Escher is one of my favorite artists. I love the dtail of the shadow, and even that the hands are not identical, but I did think the actual hand counld have been a little less fuzzy, better lit maybe? Anyway great pic.

Fun, would of liked to see the hand mimic the other one a litle closer, but well done.

What a nice concept. I'd like to see a bit more fill on the shadow, too dense here.

very clever.....

This is an excellent idea and very well-executed. What's bothering me about some of these hand/drawing images is that I thought photos were disqualified for showing artwork "not your own and including your own"? I will go ahead and give you a high score, but I'm wondering about that. Nice work, anyways!

Shadow from the hand & pencilis a little distracting but I like the idea. Good luck

This is still a copy of an artwork...even if you did put a hand in it...
03/22/2006 05:53:06 PM
this was just done in a recent challenge, within a few months

Nice....but not original.....Escher...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 06:48:59 AM
clever work...I had this idea myself - just as you have done here, but changed and did a different take on it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 06:47:14 AM
Somewhat interesting.
03/22/2006 05:25:40 AM
I guess I have seen this picture long ago.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This may have looked better in black and white, but I do like the contrast of the colored hand against the greyness of the drawing
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 12:52:53 AM
Cool. I remember another entry one time that reminds me of this. I like yours.
