Trompe l'oeil

Yesterday I had to do a trompe l'oeil for my drawing class. I was dreading doing it because the point of trompe l'oeil is to make something look as real as possible and my drawing skills are not there yet. Plus I had to do it in justpencil and how can you make something look real when you are just using pencil?

After all the agonizing it turned out better than I thought. I'm happy with my drawing but I
wouldn't call it a trompe l'oeil. Here is what I was drawing:

And here is my drawing:

WOW! That looks SO good. The shadowing is excellent, especially the thread's and the long stretched out leaf tips'.

It's definitely an "A".
