I immediately thought of this when I read the challenge title "What is this pencil?" It's the pencil from hell that represents school!

Blood is fake, I didn't actually stick my hand. :D
(And I definitely ruined my homework making this.)

Yes, this photo does have impact. Too bad it didn't make it higher :/

Nice job on this. The blood is realistic and the pencil really looks like it goes straight into the hand. The implication that this photo is somehow inappropriate is absurd.

10/22/2007 06:02:06 PM

10/22/2007 01:59:16 PM
Know the feeling. A little gruesome, but very well done. Lots of impact.

awesome ! great photo
10/21/2007 08:48:24 PM
im not sure about these ideas...photo is great though
10/21/2007 07:28:40 PM
The blood is super realistic, well done with that. While I'm always in favour of out-of-the-box thinkers, I'm not sure the concept was entirely suitable for this light-hearted challenge.
10/21/2007 02:27:02 PM
Yucky! But excellent idea and composition :)
10/20/2007 02:50:48 PM
yuk! (7)
10/20/2007 01:12:41 PM
mmm chocolate. but it's still a pencil.
10/20/2007 11:27:54 AM
heheh, grusome!! good idea, very stark lighting, but works OK. 6
10/20/2007 02:30:09 AM
Good FX, gory, but great idea and color 7
10/20/2007 02:02:25 AM
The title is very appropriate.. Inspite of the gore I like the picture..
10/19/2007 10:43:08 PM
oh G!!!
10/19/2007 09:43:47 PM
Okay - this is kind of gross. Sometimes creative minds worry me. :-| Technically it looks good - the composition, lighting, etc., yet very disturbing.
10/19/2007 12:23:02 PM
eeeewww...but I can definately relate! I am not a fan of that homework stuff either! haha, but who really is right? this is great, and especially with Halloween coming up! love it love it!!
10/19/2007 12:22:08 PM
Great picture, but DNMC as the pencil is a pencil :(

too much homework makes me want to do that to
10/18/2007 07:55:12 PM
oh wow... This one caught my eye first out of all of them, and I love it.
10/18/2007 06:39:26 PM
This is very disturbing, but extremely well done. Now I see what's being bitched about in the forums...
10/18/2007 05:45:19 PM
Disturbing but well executed.
10/18/2007 03:31:18 PM
Now this is cool. Love the set up and concept. 8
10/18/2007 12:28:49 PM
It's very bloody! Way over the top it works tho! 9 from me
10/18/2007 11:26:28 AM
Ouch! Wonderful sharp photo. Perhaps a bit more blood coming from under the hand would have added to the shot.
10/18/2007 11:11:10 AM
Gross, but very well done. Innovative and original.
10/18/2007 06:47:33 AM
I think this shot would look more dynamic from a lower angle.
10/18/2007 03:48:44 AM
The wrong answer can be painful. It is great that one can read parts of the tests and homework. Looks like syrup and chocolate. I hope the pencil wasn't sharp during the shooting and that no humans were harmed in this photo challenge.
10/18/2007 02:57:02 AM
drastic& very cool!
10/18/2007 01:31:23 AM
This is awesome! Nice work!
10/17/2007 10:31:22 PM
Wow. This shot does have a wow factor in it. Very creative.
10/17/2007 08:35:25 PM
I hear ya. Drives me batshit, but I think this might be OTT.
10/17/2007 05:35:33 PM
This is disgusting. Nice idea anyway.
10/17/2007 03:35:41 PM
I really really like this photo.
10/17/2007 01:46:54 PM
Too grotesque! Can't tell it's a pencil. Just a bad idea.
10/17/2007 01:41:02 PM
this makes my hand hurt looking at it!
10/17/2007 01:19:53 PM
fucking awesome! I bet you are getting killed by gore haters though. 10 for making me smile.
10/17/2007 12:23:38 PM
Nice job
10/17/2007 11:10:11 AM
very different thats for sure..like it well done
10/17/2007 10:51:40 AM
10/17/2007 10:16:55 AM
A little creepy...but unique idea, I like it!
10/17/2007 09:47:14 AM
A little disturbing, but humourous too. The title of this photo as well the page of equations in the background make this photo work well.
10/17/2007 09:31:27 AM
10/17/2007 07:48:38 AM
LMAO! Gorreat!
10/17/2007 06:48:34 AM
yikes! - a little graphic for my taste, but pretty well done technically
10/17/2007 05:58:58 AM
not so sure about the title.. but odly enough I like the image.
10/17/2007 05:36:53 AM
Ha hA.. Interesting and creative
10/17/2007 02:25:02 AM
ahhhh! Is the pencil supposed to represent an excuse as to why the homeork wast done? ;)
10/17/2007 02:10:51 AM
I little bit over the top for me, and I can't even look at it.
