Here are the results of the Pandora Drawing Compeition.
Well done to everyone that entered. Sorry if you’s didn’t get through on email. I’m afraid I don’t have the time to go chasing around social media looking to entries delivered in other ways.
All you had to do was watch the two videos, “How to draw Pandora” https://youtu.be/_ymBdT622hM and “How to draw Pandora’s box” https://youtu.be/ri_ME9gst50 and send me your own drawing based on the videos, elaborating your drawings, using your imagination and interpretation of the story of Pandora, and what you think may be hidden in her box.
The prize is a signed, limited, first-edition copy of Pandora, including the book, warning wrapper, inspirational poster and a sealed message from Pandora – there were only 100 copies printed in the first edition, so it is quite rare!
I can’t tell you how excited I am getting. I keep checking my YouTube statistics about every three minutes. They are going to have to take me away in a little yellow van quite soon!
As I write, I am very close to gaining my 100,000th subscriber on the ShooRaynerDrawing channel. And that all comes down to you, following and watching my videos.
So… first of all, I’d like to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who has followed me over the years. It has been quite an experience for me!
I thought I should mark the occasion in some way – maybe the 100,000th subscriber could win a prize! But, that’s a bit unfair because I can’t really tell who the 100,000th subscriber is, and also, my faithful followers wouldn’t get a chance of winning.
Some people have suggested that I should do a special drawing, but somehow that just doesn’t seem enough.
And then suddenly I realised, it’s not about me it’s about YOU.
I want to see how and where you follow my drawing lessons.
I’ve collected some fantastic Art stuff to give away as a prize…
So, this is what I want you to do.
Take a picture of yourself showing me how and where you do your ShooRaynerDrawing lessons. I want to see you at your desk or on the porch with a laptop, or up in a treehouse, or dangling from a chandelier!
Wherever and however, you follow along with my videos, I want to see and I want to be amused, amazed and astonished!
The best five pictures will go on my website and then I will let everyone else choose the final winner, because I know I won’t be able to chose.
When you have taken your picture, post it on my G+ community page or on Twitter with the hashtag #SRD100K so I can find it.
My Twitter name is @shoorayner (why not go and follow me on Twitter too? I’ll follow anyone who uses the same hashtag while the competition is on. The G+ page is here.
Closing date is midday GMT on Wednesday the 11th February 2015. The final voting will end on Midday GMT on Tuesday 17th February 2015 and I will announce the winner the next day.
The overall winner will receive: A set of 24 Derwent Graphic pencils A set of 24 Derwent Coloursoft pencils A Derwent Art Eraser A rOtring Tikky Graphic pen A signed limited edition “Welcome to Shoowaii” print An exclusive Shoo Rayner Sketchbook A Signed poster of me! A Signed copy of my “Everyone Can Draw” book A signed copy of my Euclid, the man who invented Geometry” Book And, finally, free access to my new Online Course, that I am working on at the moment, called “Everyone Can Draw”.
All the runners up will also receive free access to the course
I know you all want to win this prize so, take your time, maybe get a friend to help you to take a good picture of you, or maybe a selfie will do the trick. Just t hink about it. I want to be amused, amazed and astonished!
If you want to see me reach that 100,00th subscriber, you can help by telling all your friends and social media contacts about this channel and tell them to subscribe and be as obviously clever and intelligent as you are! There’s lots of interesting and new stuff coming up on this channel over the next couple of months, so make sure you are subscribed and keep watching.
In the meantime, keep drawing, drawing, drawing – practice, practice, practice, and I’ll see you next time.
