Apparition by sakaaali Apparition by sakaaali
70x90 cm, oil on canvas, 2012

Another school work. I don't paint much, so I spent loads of time just trying to make the skull look good because I didn't know wtf I was doing. As a result I didn't have enough time to make the rest of it look good enough. Trying to figure out what's going on with that rib cage... I'm blaming the turpentine fumes :D

Not sure I like the proliferation of skulls on DA at the moment, but you have turned your part-skeleton into a kind of fearful edifice growing blocking any progress. Ravishing use red.

Thanks! I felt like I ran out of time with this, but now that some time has passed I'm a bit happier with it :)

Thanks! I forgot to mention in the description, that the assignment was to choose two complementary color pairs, and then drop one of those four colors. Hope that made sense :D And thanks for the fav!
