        • This is a very nice entry and the inclusion of the fur on the hands is a great addition BUT it would look so much better if you could use a much larger source image so that you can really show some more detail as well as your skills.

          Here is a much larger source image if you want to give it a try. Superman Returns

  • Teddy Bear Pen Pot

        • I think I have corrected it, thank you for the advice.
        • A nice entry.
          Your pen sources could be a bit sharper than what you are currently using.

          For extra points, I would rotate the head about 15 degrees to the left to account for the curved base and adjust the shadow accordingly [radial shadow that is darker and closer on the left side but lighter and tapered away on the right side of the bear head].

This contest is fueled by the following news: Teddy bear - One of the most famous type of toys in XX century and in the beginning of XXI century: toy bear is made of soft stuffed material. In western Europe and America, it is popular mainly in the name of "Teddy bear" or in German "Teddybär", traditionally associated with the name of US President Theodore Roosevelt. In Russia, the name "Plush Bear" consolidated although not all the toy bears of this type are made of plush these days. In the beginning of 20th Century, bears of various European and American firms (production before Second World War) were considered popular collector items. Recently (End of 20th - beginning of 21st Centuries), teddy bears of the "MeToYou" company gained significant popularity. They are conventionalized under toys "Found on garret". Distinguishing features of these toys are artificial patches and also stitched gaps.
