Today’s #drawlloween prompt was “skull”. That’s another prompt that I can really get behind for several reasons. First of all I just really like skulls. I think they’re fascinating. Is that one of those things that you’re not supposed to say out loud? Moving right along then … it’s also definitely a nice spooky prompt for the Halloween thing. There are lots of great things you can do with a skull. That really didn’t get any better.
Umm, the final reason is that I’m long overdue for another skull drawing. They’re great for helping you get a handle on facial structure and I drew a few of them early on in my challenge for just that reason. I had it in my head that I would keep drawing human skulls occasionally to teach myself human facial structure. Somewhere along the line that one kind of got dropped though. I think it’s been over six months now since my last skull sketch. So it was great to have this prompt as a reason to take another stab at it and get some more practice. I think it turned out alright despite the fact that once again I failed to plot it out properly and it went off the page a bit.
