Your Favourite Pencil Drawings of 2014

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 1, 2015, 10:14 PM


So I have counted all the votes and can proudly announce the winners of my annual favourite pencil drawing competition, remember there are two sets of winners - the artists themselves who get to win the accolade and your appreciation - and the people who voted for your work, and correctly judged what would be the favourite piece chosen by everyone in each category.




So without further ado - here are the winners;


Portrait Category



1st Place goes to Emmanuele Dasanio :iconemanueledascanio: for his beautiful drawing entitled Libertas - not surprisingly Emamanuele also grabbed first prise last year in the portrait category - he certainly is an inspiration to all of us.

   LIBERTAS by EmanueleDascanio



Animal Category

1st place in the Animal category goes to Miro Gradinšćak :iconmirodesign: for his wonderful drawing entitled 'The King" one of many incredible animal drawings in his gallery


THE KING by MiroDesign


Still Life Category

1st place in the Still Life category goes to Michal Bocanek :iconmichaelx: for his brilliant piece entitled 'Shoes in the Rain'

Surreal Category

1st place in the Surreal Life category goes to Hector Gonzalez :iconhg-art: for his superb drawing entitled 'Surreal eye' a great artist specialising in eye drawings.

TV & Movie Category

1st place in the final category TV & Movie goes to Mark Stewart :iconmarkstewart: for one of my personal favourites last year entitled 'Assassin's Creed'

So there we have it - some wonderful and worthy pieces I am sure you will agree - and now to reward the voters
The winning selection was 
A11, B7, C4, D5 and E9


Believe it or not NO ONE PICKED ALL 5 CORRECTLY - in fact no one picked 4 correctly! 



However 6 People did get 3 out of 5 and win 333 Points each :) (Smile)
They are;

All that is left to say is thank you to the wonderful artists for filling our lives with beautiful and inspiring work, and to everyone who commented, faved, watched and voted for taking part - hope you enjoyed it, same time, same place next year?

Started drawing again after 20 years - loads of fun, every drawing poses a different challenge, which when overcome is incredibly rewarding.

Hey! You have great drawings in your Gallery, but the wet people drawings are stunning! I think it's really difficult to draw the water like you have done... Congrats! ;)

Have a good day!
