Organic Dress Form

So it has been quite some time since I last posted anything for Illustration Friday, or anything else. I am trying to challenge myself to start doing some different types of drawing to keep my skills up and expand my skill set.

This week the word of inspiration was "Skull". I took a bit of liberty with that and used more than just the skull, but I think it still meets the criteria.

I sketched this out and added the color in photoshop (just to dress it up a bit more than just a sketch, please excuse the obvious filter in the background).

This is my attempt a social commentary against vanity and self importance. In a way this is how I view the world. In short, no matter how important we are (or think we are), we all share the same fate. We are all like dress forms for an organic hide. There, that should brighten you day.
