This took over 4 months, using Prismacolor 005, 05 & 01 Micron

Please stop telling me the skull is wrong and the horns are wrong, for those thinking I spent over 700 + hours looking at this and didn't know Please do not knit pick anatomy semantics and anatomical correctness. I dis-proportioned the horns deliberately. Thank you

Well on your way

This is a beautifully rendered drawing. The reason I don't give it a higher rating is because it is lacking some basic understanding of structure and anatomy. The skull is very stylized and cool, however it comes across very flat and the eyes are disproportionate, the one thing that stood out to me right off the beginning was that the horns are on his head crooked and the horn that is more pronounced to us is much closer to the eye than the other. The amount of detail involved in your drawing distracts very much from these base flaws, but the drawing would be so much greater if the base drawing had more understanding and or time put into it before going into the rendering stage. I do not think there is too much to be done with your understanding of pen use because it is beautiful, but spend some time on form and structure before you go to rendering and the drawing will be outstandingly better :) good luck and keep at it

Looks great.

I love this drawing. The concept is amazing and your technique is superb. I love the skull, horns, and feathers.

it's cool

your perception for the skull is all wrong though.

Ikarus777 responds:

Dude go back to school and really apply yourself because perception involves signals in the nervous system. The word you're looking for is "perspective" and if you had taken the time to read the description located directly under the picture it states "This is an interpretation of 14th century wood engravings and the style for the time was flat 2 dimensional"
Please don't troll this page and try next time you critique to leave a more informative statement rather then a quick smug retort using the wrong word to describe what is already apparent...

Thanks for the feedback (or lack there of)
