Re: Jan 08 Contest Votes

I based my decisions on what I understand the technique should include. The elements I looked for were: dry brush strokes, black in the image, the image often hangs in the air, chinese symbols representing the name and/or date of the artist, a seal that describes the meaning of the painting, and a silk canvas.

Based on those criteria, I cast the following votes.

1. lcramer53 (First Place)
2. byRo (Second Place)
3. Out of Focus (Third Place)
4. Ziaphra (Fourth Place)
5. Lorraine (Fifth Place)

I think CBeller really stayed true to the art form--or at least as true as you can stay to a two thousand-year-old tradition while working on a computer. His (her?) composition reflects the sponaneity that makes Chinese brushwork so unique. I also looked at how relistic the black ink was. pixiecho, in particular, managed to create a wash I'd swear was authentic.

I've had a lot of fun working on what was my first contest, and it's always interesting to see everyone's interpretations. Can't wait till next month!

Re: Jan 08 Contest Votes

It was very difficult to choose the final five. My votes are based on the entries that best resemble the styles of samples provided. I looked for ink details over water brush strokes. Also, I voted for those that retained the look of the lotus being in water.

My votes:

1. byRo
2. CBeller
3. allieok
4. Ziaphra
5. carb
