I love the idea and you definitely portrayed it well! Congrats on the finish!


Ok now I got the point that the duality of the pencil is playing the role here & I kindly accept my misinterpretation about using the pencil here.

Anyway congratulations for your high finish :)

Hi bnilesh,
thank you for you comment, if you notice in the photograph information the photo was shot using iso100, hence no noise.
It is the design in the background.
Regards
Clare

Cool idea love the half finished eyes. You could have put this in the Rainbow challenge too, it fits with your background.

Doesn't look like there's even lead in the one he's drawing with. Nice idea though
10/22/2007 12:14:01 PM
I like the background and am curious how you did it, but I think with this image it probably distracts a bit much from the subject.

Would have been better at a lower ISO
10/21/2007 08:19:00 PM
what an idea...nice work :)

creative idea......background seems a bit noisy
10/20/2007 02:57:30 PM
You probably heard 'DNMC' a couple of times by now. I Like it though. Great idea, nicely executed. (8)

i would hate to have pencils for hands. Creative. If you got rid of the noise, this could ribbon. Use neat image.
10/20/2007 02:00:20 AM
cute!

One of the tops of the challenge. Nicely done.

oh WOW! I like the color in the background, and showing this little guy "finishing drawing on his face" is a great idea!

next best thing to Pinocchio!

This is a brilliantly conceived woody image, simply excellent. I hope it wins the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2007 03:24:46 PM
Very noisy in the background.
10/18/2007 01:07:47 PM
Kinda scary!
10/18/2007 11:41:41 AM
Nice interpretation of the challenge, like the humour.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2007 09:38:36 PM
Lol - clever. I like the woody, "hands" and unfinished eyes. The background has some noise which detracts a little bit for me. Overall though, it's fun to look at (and not chopsticks!). :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2007 03:28:54 PM
Wow. Definately can see this in the top 3. Very creative and simple and targets the challenge perfectly. Well done!

never thought I'd be giving Woody a 10 LOL

Poke your eye in
10/17/2007 07:40:08 AM
Good idea, can't say I'm a fan of the background you have used.

Sure someone else will say this but 'Edwoody Pencil Hands' could have been a good title. Nice image a little sharper and more contrast would have worked better for me though.

Love it!!! Creative with a capital C...Edward Pencil Hands!!

Nice background!

Oh lord, woody. Top 10 for sure :D
