Skulls, Skulls, Skulls

About the Project

Skulls illustration

What young artistic boy hasn’t spent time sketching a skull? While on the outside I may no longer be a young boy, I still find one kicking around inside from time to time. Skulls. They’re just damn cool. Don’t believe me? Just do a Google image search. A gazillion people cannot be wrong, can they?

"Skulls, Skulls, Skulls", was simply the outcome of a desire to make a cool image that would be suited for a banner placement and would work well with just about any type of crop.

Project Details

Using a variety of photographic references from Google Images, I hand sketched a preliminary field of skulls. The image was then scanned and cleaned up using a Wacom tablet and Photoshop.

Using Photoshop, I made numerous clones of the skulls and arranged my layout. Large fields of color and texture were applied and the image was wrapped up with a final bump to the vibrancy.
