Love that last one. Finding skulls in London isn't that easy but I'm going to keep my eyes peeled a bit more.

Love the textures of the vice! The fox in the box is great compositionally, but I feel the skull needs more development. Or...I don't know, that great cast shadow resolves any ambiguity with a nice touch of drama. Anyway, that one got me thinking, so thanks much!
By the by, what size are you working at, and could the vice be re-scanned so as to allow loving perusal of the textures?

That's a really neat idea to paint a series of skulls, that would make an interesting gallery display. And the textures on the vice are wonderful.
Thank you for the inspiration.

The vice is 12x16 Cory - too big for scanning. But I could put half of it on there I s'pose.
Here's a new piece - not terribly happy with it but I tried to take some process shots and make it an animated .gif. The subject is the newest skull in the collection and is pretty special. My Grandad picked that up out on the Channel Islands many years ago, my uncle had it in his small studio and he recently passed away, so it came down to me.
It is a pretty rare species of goat now, estimated at only about 200 left.
Anyway, here's the setup and the "process"...(I hope the .gif works...never made one before)...
Huh - well, it didn't work....worked when I tested it. Oh well...I'll post the pics separately I guess. Tomorrow...
Applying tone (thin Burnt Sienna)
Evened out tone > Measuring and wiping out
Drawing > More drawing and wiping out
Shadows and Darks > Background and Details
Almost > Final adjustments...tweaking

I really love the texture on the vise and the wooden box. Thanks for posting up your process as well!
When you say "wiping out" do you mean putting turps on a cloth and wiping off the paint or have I completely misinterpreted things?
