I had this brilliant idea to create a set of 50 skulls as a design effort, or better as some training for visual development.
The goal was to create a huge number of different looking skulls, that i could eventually turn into illustrations to sell them in some way (Shirt prints, stock pictures...).
Well, i did the first 50 in a day - which was a great experience.
Btw, i did them in 2006 already - just figured that out when I scanned them in to display them here.
When i looked up the internet for reference pictures and a little more inspiration, i had to find out that some other person from the other side of this planet had a similar idea and pushed the envelope even further.
His point was to create 365 different skulls over the course of a year.
He succeeded and created a big buzz around the website with fans sending in their own creations or pictures from things they "skullified" with the help of his stencils.
