We received a ton of great drawings when we asked Crave readers to submit their best Draw Something creations, but Christoffer Dumlao's sketch of Steve Jobs made our jaws drop. Using an iPad and stylus, the wedding videographer from Olongapo City, Philippines, was able to add some amazing detail and shading. Chris says he's never taken any art lessons, so he's just naturally talented -- lucky.
Congrats on winning our contest, Chris, and thanks to all who submitted drawings. Click through the gallery that follows to see some of our favorites, and watch the time-lapse video below to see Chris drawing his winning sketch.

Avengers assemble! Andrew Hsu of San Ramon, Calif., put in a heroic effort for this drawing of the Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man.
Here's another one from Hsu. I'm pretty sure that if Mozart ever came up on my turn, I'd force-close the app and restart to get a new set of words. As you can see, Hsu had no problem with the challenge.
OK, we realize that by writing out the actual answer on the drawing, Richard Shute of El Mirage, Ariz., might offend Draw Something purists, but come on, how could we not include this amazing picture of Ludacris?
Shute told us he wrote out the name because he was afraid the other player wouldn't be able to guess the correct answer. But we think he did a pretty darn good job of capturing the rapper's resemblance in this portrait.
Karl Robstad of Athens, N.Y., had us laughing with his portrait of Adele. The dramatic eyes, the wide-open mouth... I mean, you can practically hear her belting "Rolling in the Deep" from this drawing, can't you?
Michael Kenny of New Orleans has some strong drawing skills. Just check out his spot-on portrait of Popeye with his can of spinach. Hopefully, Bluto isn't around; otherwise, Popeye is going to open up a can of something else if you know what we mean.
Some people are content with throwing out shapes and stick figures that sort of resemble whatever object or person they're drawing, but not Joseph Naim of Melbourne, Australia. He goes the extra mile by adding great details and colors to creations like this chainsaw.
I once tried to draw DNA during a game of Draw Something with my brother, but he couldn't figure it out. I'm guessing my brother would have no problem coming up with the answer if he were playing with Naim.
This starfish drawing by Wen Li Khoo of Melbourne, Australia, might look a bit simple to some, but that's what we love about it. The minimalist sketch reminds us of Henri Matisse's Cut Outs collection.
We went wild for Loyd Calomay's interpretation of the word drumset. The Corona, Calif., resident could have gone the easy route by drawing a few circles here and there, but adding a Muppet was brilliant. Crave like!!
