I know skulls are overdone and they're quite a common symbolism of death, piracy etc., but I'm not here to mention all this. I don't know how to put what I feel about this piece into words. To me, it isn't quite ominous. I find it very intriguing. It has so many splashes of colour that I really want to examine in great detail, like an archaeologist coming across some undiscovered bones. The parts that aren't splashed in purple and pink feel very... alien-y, if that's even a thing. Or maybe amphibian, I don't know. The ridges on the top make it feel like some sort of fish. It's like, an otherworldly green and grey that makes me want to hold it in my hand, wonder where it came from and perhaps examine it even further.
Not only do you show a great level of detail and anatomy, but you also communicate some things about this skull that only some of us would realise. For instance, its teeth. They're on the same level, in two perfectly straight rows, and there's no overbite. Could it have been the skull of someone who wrenched his food with his teeth, and used nothing but his bare hands? It gives me a sort of primal feel to it. This picture is simple, but makes me so intrigued.
Very well done.
