Pen and Ink Skull Self-Portrait

I know I already posted something like this that I did digitally, however, I really like it and want to make more of them. Here is an inked version from my watercolor moleskine, that I still plan to paint.

Bearded Skull Study

For some reason for a while I had been obsessed with the idea of doing a series of painting with skulls with mustaches and beards, I had done several sketches of celebrity skulls. I want to get back to the idea someday, but this is the first one that I did, it could use some more TLC but it's a good start.

Giant's Head

I dislike selling paintings, they feel like they need to be something more then what my hands can make. However they needed work for the auction and I think I usually am underwhelmed by what I make because I see what it is not instead of what it is. Though I am excited for a severed Giants Head to be in a silent auctio0n at Arts Benicia. Usually the show is filled with flowers, landscapes and abstract pieces, so I am interested to see if any one makes a bid on my strange piece.
The origin of this piece had to do with a threadless design competition for Adventure Time I was drawing Finn the human slaying a giant and I drew a few really cool severed giant's heads. It was really fun I kinda want to do some more and really develop something here.

Moleskine Self-portrait painting

I start all of my sketch books with a self-portrait and that includes my water color Moleskine. Laura thinks this portrait is creepy.

Giant's Head Study

I am working on a painting for Arts Benicia's Annual Benefit Auction and before I started working on the larger final piece I decided to do a color study of the work first. I busted out my water color Moleskine, which I had been neglecting. I am really happy with it and I plan on doing the big one tonight, because it appears to be due tomorrow.
