I am really surprised this shot didn't finish higher...

Love the pencil drawing... I think the drawing, however, overshadows the pencil... Would've liked to see a less complete drawing... Nicely done. 6 sjgleah

great concept.
08/24/2002 04:58:00 PM
Nice artwork, but I feel you put more emphasis is on the art than on the photography.
08/24/2002 01:38:00 AM
That's a very nice effect. The angle of the arm works very well into the 3D drawing.
08/23/2002 11:02:00 PM
great drawing. I would prefer a little more light on the on the hand
08/22/2002 03:46:00 PM
I love the drawing but this is kind of an OPA is it not? Even if you did the drawing your self. Good execution though. 7.

The best of this image is the light. Very good; there are no hand shadows on top of the drawing. The sharpeness and focus is very good. One has to wonder if the pencil drawing (which is very cool) was made for the challege picture, or if it already existed, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the picture.

Dang the photo, I wanna see the entire sketch! A beautiful sketch indeed.

Love it! Yet another favorite this week.

From my perspective:
Meets challenge:Yes
Appeal/Artistic:inspired!!! Very nice.
Comments:Great job, one of my favorites. So much to look at here. I'm wondering about some of the things in the pic. Like what is the "B" for and why is it sideways? Why is there a bite taken out of the building on the left? Is that an insect on the building on the right? What is the meaning? Enquiring minds wanna know! LOL Good luck in the challenge.
08/21/2002 03:56:00 PM
I wish I could draw like this! I'd like to see a little more light on the hand with the pencil.
08/21/2002 11:34:00 AM
Well done. Man I hate people who can draw AND take good photos... Focus looks pretty good. The hand is just a bit dark, but not enough to really matter. 7
08/21/2002 10:32:00 AM
Very creative.
08/21/2002 03:10:00 AM
Good drawing ! Must have taken ages. Was it drawn for the challenge ?
08/20/2002 08:45:00 PM
How interesting! I don't usually like to see the challenge name in the title, but this is acceptable!
08/20/2002 03:23:00 PM
Very creative, and great sketch.
08/20/2002 11:24:00 AM

what a sketch! I wish the pencil point were a tad bit brighter, but otherwise, it's a very nice photo
08/20/2002 08:15:00 AM
Great Creativity! 10
08/20/2002 06:51:00 AM
I think the drawing behind is superb! This must have taken ages, it's very cool!
On a photo level the photo seems to be a photo of another piece of artwork than about the photo itself.
08/20/2002 01:02:00 AM
The hand holding the pencil seems a little too dark and shadowy. Otherwise, excellent. =7 syamjonimi
08/19/2002 09:54:00 PM
good drawing skills! Would almost be a more interesting picture if it was less complete,
showing it being drawn ?
08/19/2002 07:45:00 PM
Fantastic!!!!!! Well done. CONGRATS! Score 8 ~Kee
08/19/2002 07:06:00 PM
Nice image, incredible amount of work for this....
Overall, the image is good. I think that detail on the hand and pencil is a little shadowed, and could have been a bit better.
08/19/2002 05:51:00 PM
The lighting is great for this photo no distracting shadows or bright spots. I have to wonder where you came across the drawing though. Meets the challenge to a T. Lots of photos similar this week of a pencil shown drawing something. Great idea though and nicely done. Good luck in the challenge.
08/19/2002 04:46:00 PM
The art creativity that I have seen in this challenge is blowing me away :) great shot... = 10 - jmsetzler
08/19/2002 04:38:00 PM
That's a cool drawing.
08/19/2002 10:54:00 AM
like the idea. the hand is not lighted properly. it's too dark in the center...
08/19/2002 10:13:00 AM
wow...did you (or someone) draw this WHOLE thing just for this picture?
It's wonderful!
08/19/2002 09:43:00 AM
The drawing is very interesting. The hand and pencil could use a bit more light, and perhaps angled differently. This is probably a natural way to have placed the hand, but because of the light, it looks odd on camera - the translation is lost.
Good idea.
08/19/2002 09:43:00 AM
This is a great drawing... but it seems that this photo relies too little on the actual physical pencil as the main subject. It is still creative, thought... --6-- sohr

Creativity 8
Drawing 8 :-)
Photo by itself 5
Overall : 6

It is a pleasure to contemplate Pencilopolis. So much so actually that I have a tough time critiquing the actual photograph :) I keep seeing all these neat things but they are all in the drawing(s), such as Big Bird watching the hand and the page curl of the background drawing. I have been downplaying the actual photograph; technically it is very good. The total package is just great. A lot of originality and a fine sense of humor. Wonder what the significance of the B is? :) I will revisit this later this week a few more times to settle on a final score. Congratulations, well done, I love this! Thanks for making the voting process so entertaining. An 8 for now; Journey
Have really enjoyed looking at this image this week. 10 Journey
