This was a hard decision. I made my choice based upon those who matched my own blackening style the closest. I also took accuracy of filling color into consideration. We don't want to have any white spots in the printed book, do we? I chose the top three: Meghann, Ammre and Fin. I asked them how many pieces they could do in one week. While Meghann was the most like my own in style, she is still in school and can only do 5 a week. Ammre had a computer accident and couldn't finish her second test. Ammre and Meghann will split the overflow. Chris and Mr. J had great color choices. Michael filled in color well. Kerrie, Lauren, and Kelly were also great. They were all just as good as those chosen, but the other three were faster getting their tests in. Meghann did hers in one night. All of the A girls: Ashleigh, Alexandra, and Annette did a good job, but they could have filled in the black shadows darker. Kudos to all! I'm sure that you will do well in your art careers. I'll keep every sample on file and if I get overloaded on future books you may hear from me. Thanks so much for your hard work! Cynthia
