Skull

Skull. Inkscape painting. Ulla Hennig November 2013

I downloaded the outlines of this skull from http://www.vectortuts.com, but I took my artist’s license with it, focusing on shading and creating a painting which is not flat. I worked with gradients, opacity and blurring, and with the pencil tool as a kind of brush.

And, yes, I gave the skull that crooked smile – or is it a leer? I know, Halloween has been almost four weeks ago. But sometimes inspiration does not stick to certain dates…

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
