    That's awesome. We may have to dumb it down a little but that's exactly what i had in mind. Feel free to keep posting pics, otherwise i think we'll end up going with this one.
    Some awesome references by the way - what a way to get great references, thank you everyone:biggrin-new:

    Ha ha, I thought you would like it!!! I think anyone can do this skull as is, it will be perfect see how good you can be with light source, soft fades and deep shadows. I hate that I gave away my favorite skull reference pic, but why not share it with my good friends here on the forum. I have had this for a long time, have no clue where I found it, and cant find it anywhere anymore. Luckily i saved it when i seen it. I have painted it before, free hand while just practicing, and i was waiting till I was good enough to really take a crack at it, lol!! What better time than a competition!!!

    I wish I'd have gotten back on here sooner, I have more reference skulls than I can keep track of. I like the one Seamonkey posted, I thought I had a couple more from that same guy. He did this on a sculpting program I use... that photo is how I found the program, lol.

    Found it...there's on with more angles, and on with color and texture added.

    If you need more ref, let me know, I have stuff scattered in different files all over my p.c.
