Skin Deep by YoukaiYume Skin Deep by YoukaiYume
Beauty is only Skin Deep.

Something I did About four months ago for my Observational Drawing Class Final. It has to be a compilation of at least three images and the main focus a skull.

In this pic, the compiled images are: a hand holding a brush, a table, and two or three geishas.

REFERENCE PIC for the back of the geisha: [link]

Would probably be more dramatic if I made the entire reflection a skeleton. But I procrastinated, and only had a couple of hours left before turning it in, and this is the crap I produced XD I'm sorry, Mr. Long!

lots of mistakes, but at least I passed the class! >.<

BALLPOINT PEN! 14 hours.

Brilliant! One question though, how do you try to apply make up onto your face if all you can see is a skull?

May I post this to my tumblr and share it? I would like your permission so I can give you credit. I like to respect Artists and their art so I'm asking permission, if you'd like I can link my tumblr and you can even make sure I give you credit. But if you do not want it up then that's perfectly fine, I respect that. ^ u ^

her cheekbones are quite pronounced. Her smile is also very stiff, and her complexion is a bit on the pale side.

Hi YoukaiYume, I hope you don't mind, I used this great piece as the cover art for my latest mixtape on SoundCloud. I gave you credit in my track notes :-)
