"Gold Tooth Monkey Skull", by Skeenee.
Skull study, done with fountain pen, Sumi ink, and gilding paper. Inspired by an amazing picture from the talented ig@oddarticulations , go check his feed!
Been a while that I wanted to paint that little bugger and his gold tooth & I finally got my hand on some gilding paper. That was the perfect piece for my first gilding attempt. My studio is full of gold flakes now, damn that shit is hard to contain. I also got tired of shop frames, & have been experimenting with Plexiglas framing to give more a ruff/ industrial look to my paintings. I think I am going in the right direction but it's the last time I cut plexiglass myself, it's impossible to be precise😖
