Colored pencil magazine had a challenge once a month. This is their July challenge. I learned a lot drawing this picture.

Wow!!! I thought these were real too! I was about to say how yummy they look... but they probably aren't very tasty afterall  ;) Great drawing though!

Masterfully done, I too thought those were real cupcakes when I saw the thumbnail image on the main page, and I'm still not convinced that they're not!  The way you rendered the translucence of the paper cups revealing the cake inside is particularly impressive as are the shadows/forms of the frosting on their tops.

Thank you. I started using Prismacolor colored pencils in high school more than 20 years ago, and have played with them a little since then, but I am learning that this is a whole new world opening up to me in techniques I never knew existed. I'm hoping to get better and faster.

I don't bake nearly as well as I draw.

My first thought was "oh those look yummy! Hope there's a recipe attached!"
You fooled me, that is so awesome!!!

Your drawing captured the cupcakes perfectly. 
Now I'm in the mood for a batch of sweets  :D

I'd say you smashed that challenge!  Your shading is perfection, I totally thought this was a photo as well at first glance :)

Yes. Apparantly they are so realistic that people think it's a baking post, instead of a drawing/art one. I guess I'll have to include pictures of the pencils when I post next time.
