Panda ride Winner of 'Plans Gone Wrong' Contest by =Ploopie ( Suggested by sweetychan and Featured by WDWParksGal )
Fantastic piece! I love how you have kept the panda to look like the way it is in the stock piece, the way it gazes onwards to the pie is just pretty funny. Great use of the other provided images too, lots of people had randomly placed them in without any consistency, but with this piece they've been used brilliantly!

It's such a simple idea, and greatly constructed, the environment itself is really well done, the clouds, the grass, flora, the animals, including the butterflies! Most of all, the two characters on top of the panda, the little girl just sitting there with a cute facial expression, knowing the panda won't stop until it gets the pie! the little boy flying off with his feet just tangling on the lamp's wire is humorous too.

I love how well the panda stands out against the rest of the image, the panda's eyes are also striking. This is clearly the focal point and it has been done brilliantly! The fact that it's a lamp that she's holding is also purely simple, love how the lampshade is just blowing in the distance.

Great job, and congratulations on winning the competition! It was well deserved, hope you enjoy your prizes!

Fav'd as well. :3

Aww... AWESOME! That's the first thing I thought when I saw this. I was shocked and surprised that this won! After all, it follows all the rules and it was near perfection!

I really like how the point of view here can be seen in many different ways! I mean the pie and the people riding the panda gives me a funny feeling.

I can tell that this very original because I, myself see this as a unexpected entry and winner. There artist here thought outside the box and came up with a creative way to present the contest itself.

The technique and impact goes along quite well. I see the perfect blur and intended humor in this work of art along with the sense of smell here. I mean--I can literally smell what's going on here (oh yeah--I appear to be baking pie in the oven, lol!)

Anyways, 5 stars on everything and congrats in the win! I wish you good luck with your future! =D
