Thinking Skull by Hewison Thinking Skull by Hewison
Currently I'm re-studying human anatomy inbetween projects. Specifically the human head, at the moment. So have a confused Lyra with a human skull on her head. No, I don't know either.

Also, some self-note of sorts.
- Played around with a calligraphy-ish brush for inking. Worth further experiementing with, though canvas flipping without a shortcut and on a higher resolution file is problematic. Obvious solution, try and figure out how to make a canvas flip shortcut and work on lower res for inking.
- Overlay layer for highlights does not produce a strong enough contrast as I hoped it would. Play around with this at a later time.
- Multiply layer for adding dark tones continues to make a significant improvement. That being said, need to define shadows further and blur others more. Solution: zoom out and step away(take a break, in other words) more often, this should make obvious errors... more obvious at time of working.
- I still have no idea what I'm doing and why.

Edit: hurp-a-derp, forgot a title so have a quick one.
Edit 2: Really not with it atm, here's a link to this post on my tumblr: [link]
Edit 3: Featured in EQD's Drawfriend Stuff #713 - thank you!

A old remnant of a long extinct mythological race of Hominids who are that preceded even the Great Ape Empires of old.

It whispers dark secrets to her... It tells her things.. future, past, and present... but the one thing it says most is... 'Thanks for the candy..'

Funnily enough, I originally planned to do a Shakespeare type picture. I couldn't find a hoof pose I liked, so I thought to myself "eff it, I'll just stick it on her head!" ...and so I did!
