2013 drawing Contest

20:35 Yannie 37 Comments

2013 drawing contest was over. This year, the topic of Primary One is toys and the topic of Primary Three is Beach Activity. 

Here I took the pictures of  the drawings of the top 3 winners from Primary One and Primary Three only. Because my two daughters are one of the winners in these two categories. 

The winners' drawings were all  locked inside window glasses. So, please bear the shadow of reflection at the pictures. 

I do not want to tell you the result of the contest, because I want to hear from you. If you are the judge, how you would rate these drawings? 
Picture A

  1. interesting, at first i thought it's just some coloring contest but when scrutinizing at all the different pictures, i noticed there are additional drawings on the base picture.. nice, and i am actually surprised those are works from Primary One and Primary Three students!! they are so professional~~

  2. All are nice and creatively and artistically colored. I admired the works. My girl sure cannot colour that nice, but again she doesnt like coloring much.

    Hard to decide the winning pieces, all are great.

  3. Picture A: i like the details of those cute little animals on the drawer.. the background is somehow too colorful/complicated and kind of distracted the focus on the toy itself..

    Picture B: i like that very creative picnic mat, as well as the well nice mice and cuckoo toys added.. the bear also colored well but not quite the same for the doll..

    Picture C: a nice idea to add the car but the overall usage of color doesn't seem too harmony and natural.. especially the bear seems a little too solid with the way it is colored

    if i were to rank them, then it would be
    1st: Picture B
    2nd: Picture A
    3rd: Picture C

  4. Picture X: rather simple addition to the original base picture, and the color of the sand used was rather too dark.. looks like hard muddy soil rather than soft sands on the beach..

    Picture Y: a very happy overall atmosphere with the additions of smiling characters at the background.. the mountains at the far background however looks redundant, and makes the picture seems to be more cramped.. that drop of sweat on the boy actually is overly done..

    Picture Z: generally a very nice composition showing a true scene and activities on the beach.. coloring is nice and details of shades and borders were also taken care of.. the tones used on the beach make the soft sands felt..

    if i were to rank them, then it would be
    1st: Picture Z
    2nd: Picture Y
    3rd: Picture X

    1. Well, in my personal opinion, picture C looks the best, followed by B then A.

      Then for standard 3, Z, Y then X.

  7. I think for Primary One, picture A is the best, follow by B and C.
    And for Primary Three, picture Y, follow by Z and X.

  8. I love picture B and Z after scrutinizing them for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  9. picture c and z are the best of their lot but all also very good for their respective ages.

    ReplyDelete
  10. B, A and C...in that order and Y, Z and X.

  11. I can't be of much help here. Am not good in art and I feel the quality of each drawing is very subjective to different people.

  12. I'm impressed that kids nowadays color so well. Parents invest a lot on their children, huh? But most of all, children themselves are interested at what they do.

  13. The level of colouring and drawing skills are very good. I personally like drawing A, the colours stand out and like the design of the alphabet blocks too. I find drawing Z is better for it is look more like in the sandy beach under the bright sun, the back ground activities are fantastic. So which one one belongs to April and May?

  14. Wow! Wow! I love the drawings! They are well done for such young age. During my time, I was sure no one could colour tones so well like those drawings you posted.

  15. I had a hard time trying to judge the best as each individual had their own subjective styles. Art has no rules and the limit is beyond the skies! People could pay over a million dollars just for abstract paintings too.

  16. Now I want to give my own ratings based on which drawings were professionally done and could be selected for commercial purposes like story books. Remember, all are good but the colours that would be suitable for story books are:

    1st: Picture B
    2nd: Picture A
    3rd: Picture C Same as Ah Boy's ratings!

    1st: Picture Z
    2nd: Picture X
    3rd: Picture Y

    Pic A

    Very colorful and cheery. Got initiative to add on flowers at wallpaper.

    Need to practice for more steady hand coz tv there the line up down. Put color tone at tv tabke to give it depth. Toy alphabet cube make multicoloured would be nice

    I particularly liked the wall on left side coz multicoloured. Like real wallpaper

    Only thing I find not so nice is the pink lines on the carpet . Its too bright

    Lovely skill in shading making it like got shadow

  20. Pic c toy.

    I love the rainbiw back ground. My guees is this one not your girl punya coz toys are mostly for boys like car..clockwork bird n kite. My guess is this is a boy who color it.Ok am old fashion la lol.

    Good point is that he used shadows for the pic

  27. Lets see from Std 1:
    A:Clear and bright colours. He/she imagined his/her scene at home because got a TV. Is that a window?

    B: This students shaded the colour tone wisely. Very atractive design done on the mattress. I think is much better without the doll there. It looks oversize to me.

    C: Clear, bright and cheerful colouring from this student.

    Comes for the ranking, I choose
    1st: B, 2nd: A and 3rd: C.

  28. When it comes to Std 3;

    X: The theme is at the beach. It coloured to dark but he or she is creative is craving the hair lines from pencil I guess. I like the idea, very creative.

    Y: This student is full of imagination and creative in drawing at the beach scene. Crab is so happy looking at the beach!

    Z: I kinda like this one compare to Y. The tone and shades are bright and clear. Good one. People playing volley ball at the beach is a good imagination too. Looks at the mascular man -That must be her hero - Daddy! Yan's jin jin isn't it?

    Sincere ranking for me:
    1st:Z, 2nd:Y, 3rd: X
