Because of digressing
Thanks folks for all the support and compliment on April's drawing in my earlier entry. No, she was chosen, her two other classmastes were chosen to win the prize from Astro XTY. And yes, she was upset.
I gave her a hug to comfort her. When she was ok, I talked to her more, I found out that her drawing was failed because of disgressing.
The subject is A Summer Vacation with DaYang (XTY's icon). Both her two classmates drew a human in the pictures. If only she had drawn a human in the picture, she could win too. But, she said, "Butterflies also can have summer vacation with DaYang right? Can't they just imagine this is a cartoon world?" I couldn't deny on her logic.
Picture was taken at Papa's Birthday Celebration on September 2011Anyway, I took this opportunity to explain to her that it is very important to follow the subject and topic closely, be it in drawing, writing or speaking. In most exams, we can't afford to go out of topic, especially in essay writing.
I have taken a look on the winning drawings, all the winners have done a fairly good job too, I reckoned.
