Days 27-29

Day 27 – Does this skeleton remind anyone else of Henry Winkler?  I couldn’t help but think of him as I worked on it.  I think this is one of my favorite skeletons because it looks the friendliest.  Pen on colored pencil.

Day 28 – I forayed into the land of arteries.  I love arteries.

“Deep drinks the warrior’s soul.”

My Brother-in-law has been following my sketches and sent me a link to a poem I did not know, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s “The Skeleton in Armor.”  It’s a great tale of old with some beautiful lines about death.  If you’d like to read it, it’s here.  Thanks, Pat!

Pen and colored pencil.

Day 29 – No longer are my skeleton sketches only of humans!

So, this got complicated because bones on top of bones represented with little dotted lines turns out to be…  a big bunch of little dots.  Also, look how lumpy the skull is!  Maybe it got hit on the head by a viking.

Pen on colored pencil.
