uploadedI will say I came up with this idea when I pulled my old Prismacolor Colored Pencils out to get the dust off of them and saw a photo similar to this on the box. Hence the title. It is last minute and I don't expect it to do so well. But what the hell at least I can look at a score. Also I want to try and enter more challenges and the only way to do it is to enter.

Whoa, mouse wheeling this up and down creates an interesting optical illusion :p

I love images like this one, and have done a couple myself with colored pencils. This has such an amazing amount of movement and even motion and love the color palette as well.

I like it! There are several circular patterns going on that continually bring the eye to center and then back out again. Nice job!

right on target! :)

The imbalance of color takes some of the effect away ... but it's a good idea and is well shot. The shadows are a touch too hard though.

Wow......! Thats an amazing idea and composition!! Realy nice!

One small (insignificant) suggestion. I would have turned all the crayons so that the writing wasn't showing. Other than that I really like this. 9
