the crystal skull by beckycloonan the crystal skull by beckycloonan
haha just some art i did for fun today.. i did another picture also, plus some av 8 pencils... so it's been a productive day.

this one is pretty straightforward, not very daring on the colors or composition, it's just like a study of i dunno.... three piece suits? haha who knows. anyway...

let's hear it for antiquity!! hip hip...!!!

This is, simply put, AWESOME. It's got both my interest in 1920s-30s style and my interest in odd antiquities wrapped in a convienient package (lol). For some reason, this makes me think of Mike Mignola's BPRD series. Probably the lighting/shading style. once again, awesome 8-)

May I ask what inspired you to draw this? What was it based off of?

Here's a wiki entry of crystal skulls:
[link]

It's just my idea of what it might have been for a gentleman explorer of the 1920's to find one and then pose with it. Or something along those lines. It's not really based off anything except how rad crystal skulls are. If I can convay one thing with this picture I'd want it to be how incredibly bad I want to find one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :faint:

-Hooray! I wish I had</iu> a three-piece. I only have a vest. And a jacket I found on the street, that mysteriously fits me. But the vest used to belong to a priest, so it's got a place for the collar, so that's neat!

I too am reminded of Mignola. I think it's the skull. And the overall subject matter. This is pretty and should be made into a bookmark, to be sold in bookstores the world over!

Oh wait! I remember why this was familiar!

There was a short horror story I read about a crystal skull once, and that's what this reminded me of. ^^;

I seem to remember an awsome movie that involved history projecting crystal skulls, also featured evil mayan sacraficers, a dog-a-pillar, dinosaurs and zombies.
