Late as usual :D
I think this is 2 hours worth of drawing, I did half an hour here and half an hour there during the day... so, don't hold me to it. :D
It needs a little bit more done to it before I can call it finished, I think.
Thanks for looking... and Thanks for the images, Caron!

Great piece, Sherville. You have a good understanding of form. Colours accentuate the form and the subject too!! Nicely rendered. I like it a lot!

great texture... I love your linework... it makes me really see and feel the surfaces... and it's not as scarey as the other ones :D

This is soooo real looking. I'm green with envy.

The colors and shading and very good, and all that hatching really adds to the whole piece. If you add more, please post for us to see what you did to it.

This is stunning, Sherville! I love the colors you used and the sense of depth you created with them. I can almost reach inside the eye socket of that skull. Great work!

YEHHHEEEEHHHEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!
I really dig your rendering of this skull
your choices of hue for the shading is smashing
you get both warms and cools plus great volume with your technique
not to mention an eerie feel of antiquity as well
I'm lovin this work, killah!

sherville,

it's really amazing to see how so many people handled this skull, and all so differently.

I love your colors, and agree with Surfinia, the hatching really adds great depth to it. I really feel like this has the patina of very old bone, you've done a very fine job!

purrrrrrrrrrrfect!:cat:

So many colors in a bone study. Makes it look really solid.

Thanks for the comments!

Impetuous - I used coloured pencil for this... I chose this picture because I could crack out my favourite colours that I use on everything! I'd just finished a frog and so i'm really hating the colour green right about now, so it was nice to use earth tones again. ahhhhh!

Thanks everyone, your comments are appreciated! Actually, I intended to reply to you all when I had finished this one, but I'm not so sure I should touch it anymore... I was thinking I would add the background kinda motley, but then someone suggested only hinting some colour around it, but I'm also thinking I like it as it is with the stonehenge as the background. So, I'm lost. Anyone with ideas... please share! :)

Oh yeah... Caron, no need to have been nervous, you did a great job hosting, but I know how it is... somehow we get suckered into these things by Bobby :D (Just kidding!)

That was quick, Tuatara!
Actually, since I just made that reply I went away and printed out the skull and did the background on that just to see and this is what I got... if it gets the thumbs up, I'll do it to the original too. :D
This IS a print out so, the colours on the skull look kind of different to the first one... actually, I think this whole picture scanned different to how it really looks... it's a bit darker here than it really is, or something... it looked fine on the other computer but on mine it's just...gross... so I dunno what you all are seeing. (Stupid XP!)

Okay! You Win!

I have had a careful look back at your original drawing and the grass turns it into a completely different thing. At first I didn't like the grass but the more I looked at the original and then back at the second one the grass won. The first one looks like a beautiful pencil study the second a more finished composition - has more meat to it. Just a few thoughts!:) Let us see what you decide.

That's really impressive! I love the variation in colors and the way you capture the surface of the skull!

Sherville,
Everyone's already said all that can be said. My personal favorite is the second with the background.

Fantastic - As always!

Have a great day! :)

Hey hey, thanks guys!
I am sooo sick of this skull now that I haven't done any grass to the original or anything, and I probably won't, unless some day down the track I am bored and need something to do, I dunno... I'm kind of afraid to ruin what I've already got, hehe. I'm a wuss, yes, it's true!! :D

(((((((((Shervie!!)))))))

It just dawned on me! The word I was looking for to describe you first skull - FRESH! Ha! Funny considering the subject..... but actually all your work brings that thought to mind..:D Yep Shervies fresh..............lol :D ;)

The second one dosen't do much for me personally...... seems to be a bit more "earthy" LOL!

This second image is much darker and intense and it's great, sverville. :clap: The sculp would certainly be proud of your efforts. :D I like the colors and the feeling of texture you've achieved by combining them. This is a work of a master. :)

hehehe TJ! Thanks. Fresh, cool, I like that! You is Da bomb! teehee. :D

Irina, thank you, you sure know how to give someone a big ego. :D The second looks more intense because we got a new computer with Win XP ( :mad: ) on it and the settings I usually use when scanning don't work well on it anymore... weird.
