A New Bone Study

As I was posting photos of drawings on my portfolio page, it dawned on me that I haven’t done a bone study since college. I love bone studies and rock studies, anything that has me really working with chiaroscuro. So, I printed a few pictures of bones from the internet yesterday and sat down to draw this:

If you want to see the pic I used to draw the skull, visit this page.

I think the forehead on mine is a bit short, but considering I drew this in about an hour after having not done a bone study in over two decades, I’d say it’s passable. The teeth were a challenge. Mine look a touch more happy than the original.
