Skull 29

The twenty-ninth skull!

Skull 29

Skull 29 – 12×16″

I don’t know why I had to do a snake skull – I don’t particularly love snakes (though I don’t particularly hate them either; I’ve captured garden snakes and watched them when I was a little girl and had no problem with them generally).  I guess I just think that snakes are cool and creepy, and skulls are also cool and creepy?  I will probably paint something with human skulls and snakes, too (maybe next?  depends on which sketch feels best for the next one, haha), but I thought that a snake skull looked pretty snazzy, so here’s my little rendition, in one of the more fun colors, purple! (and blues)

Spooky Film: Today’s spooky film of the day is “Predator” because I used to think that the predator’s mouth looked stupid (well, I still kinda think it does) and didn’t make any sense other than to “look cool” – but after looking at a bunch of snake skulls, I’m realizing that if the predator was modeled after snakes, then the separated mouth is really meant for grabbing and then swallowing things whole.  Of course, that means other parts of the predator’s anatomy would probably have to change to make this feasible (though my guess as to its anatomy could certainly be incorrect)… but still, at least now I can see where they were going with the creepy mouth.  Also, fun action film!  Wooooo
