Cracking skulls…

In the Native American themed brief I was asked to create a wallpaper for children by the end of the module, I thought it would be pretty interesting to look at skulls, specifically animal skulls, like that of rams and cows, I thought it tied well with the buffalo idea which is very relevant to the theme. However, I wanted something a bit quirky and different, so I looked at a graphic side to my drawings, drawing in fine liner and pencil. And developing that by filling in some of the areas with pattern. By developing the skulls in this way, its given them a softer edge to them instead of being all horror-like which wouldn’t mesh well with children.
