I agree with pixelkid. It is against the rules to copy someone's work but that's usually very obvious, It's not unusual to have similar ideas and some sources evoke the same ideas to many people. This is very well done and I'm glad that you posted it as well!

No need to feel awkward, author! This happens all the time. It's happened to me as well. Glad you posted it. It's different and you used different techniques etc. It is in fact a completely separate entry by a separate author. Having said that...I really like what you have done. Extremely well done blending and shading. This is not an easy task. Thanks for posting and good luck. .

This is very striking author, and if this would have been available to me when I worked for GRAPHIK's (it has since become Wentworth Galleries) I would have sold the living (BLEEP) out of it in all the art deco Condos in South Beach... it's very wonderful and has a magnificent feel.. GOOD LUCK.. (think about sending the finished image to a banner printer.. (the stuff they do for sport teams) 5 feet tall would be awesome... (Imagine this in the entryway of one of the erte' hotels near the Fountain Bleau... WOOO HOOOO)

Really creative and love the overall feel. I like how you didn't just duplicate the ones in the background...you changed them up a bit to make them different. Nice attention to detail.

very nice work, love the idea. Only thing I would have suggested (if I would have seen this in time ) is to lessen that pinkish look on the fingers, to try to blend it more in the rest of the image. Cool stuff!

Very nice work on this, Always love the Mary Poppins Bag effect, reminds me when she pulls the lamp out of the bag and in this case you can pull the Person out of the cup

Nice job! I like the shadow the wrist and hand are casting on the surface of the coffee. My only thought is that the droplets on the hand could be shaded a dark brownish color to help realism.

EDIT: I think it looks better...but perhaps not all need to be the same brown. Vary it up a bit since light refracts differently at different angles. Sorry to nitpick with all these suggestions...just like the image and would like to see it do well.

Nice... I think it would be much better if the "... wouldn't you?" was curved to match the curvature of the cup... and yes I'll have one... long black please

Well done, nice result. The hand image is from a it less quality than the coffee cup, but that's a nitpick. Good luck!

Thanks for the hi res, I can really see the image now and I like what you have done! I have watched as you work on this throughout the contest and you have done lovely job ... this final image is wonderful ...great work and I agree with pixelkid ... very different take on the source. Really like this one!

It's more discernable as a woman, but the LH edge could still use a little more emphasis of contour, perhaps just a bit lighter along the shoulder, since the back is in darkness?
She should also have some light along the edge of her neck on the LH side along with the shoulder edge. Her head is somewhat floating...

Overall, the whisker wings are a great idea, I like them alot!

MossyB says:

Too dark overall - I thought it was a flower of some sort until you explained it was a woman's back...It's so dark, you can't see where the "wing" on the RH side is attached, or if it even IS attached to anything.

Great, imaginative concept, just too hard to see what it is.
