Throughout the competition you have both impressed me and both of you have produced some fantastic work. Lindsey, you've been at the top continuously, and aside from the first task, you have produced some consistently great work.You have grown into such an amazing artist throughout the competition, leading you to win best photo after best photo. While this image is very similar to your second graphic, I do love the inspiration behind it. It's astonishing. You have such a strong set of work throughout the competition and looking through all your tasks reminds me of that. Your determination is amazing, so well done.
Maria, while you may not have won as many best photos, you've always been at the top. However this task proves how far you've come. You literally had 12 hours to complete this task, and I just love it. Although the arm and hair shading may be weak, it is understandable with your time constraint. However, I absolutely *LOVE LOVE LOVE* this dress. It's so beautiful!
I'm really stumped here. You both seriously deserve to win, and if I got to choose you both would. Though that can't happen, and after asking a few others on their opinions... the winner is...
Both of you! Maria and Lindsey, you have both done exceptionally and I cannot pick.
Well done, the prizes will be split between you.
