I painted an Atlantean King. If you guys remember, it is based on a scene from "Conan the Barbarian". I guess I don't wanna finish it;

I don't know how to link an image. So, please, click on the first image from my blog!

About the image I like the shot, you could add more contrast between shadows and hightlights to pop up the skull a bit more. Nice scene! :beer:

What strikes me is the cranium's shape, it's a little unsymmetric I think. The skulls almost a focal point and I think should be paid alot more attention to, try to make it as detailed as possible if lifelike is not your cup of tea

Some skull reference if you want to use them, the first picture is a skull chart of modern man with a second showing earlier hominid cranium shapes

I see nothing else being out of context here beside that though, a really good job.

Good luck
