Raccoon Skeleton 2 by Koeskull
Raccoon Skeleton 2
A completely redone version of this: <da:thumb id="290928393"> (Okay linking is apparently messed up, but it's in my gallery on the 2nd page of the folder "skulls and bones".)
This is the same skeleton. The old one was done with hot glue and a single wire. If you've never articulated a skeleton, don't ever use hot glue. Over time the smaller pieces just fell apart basically. This time I tried to do it right, by using better glue and drilling wires where it needed extra support. As you can see it can support itself completely. I'm not sure how it will hold up over time, but I'm sure it'll be stronger than the old one.

Also, for some reason the old skeleton is the 2nd result in google images when searching raccoon skeleton. I made many mistakes (mostly with construction though), so it just goes to show that you can't always trust any old skeleton on google images for a reference. One big anatomical mistake I made was with the metacarpals. They don't bend that far. I probably made the mistake because raccoon paws are so handlike, so I put the metacarpals flat on the ground like a human hand. Only the toes should be flat on the ground like that, which I fixed. I saw other skeleton pictures with this mistake too. Don't get me wrong, this is far from perfect. But it's still a lot better.

You might've noticed that she's recovered a leg. That was "donated" from a different racoon skeleton I found, along with some other missing bones. There's still no carpals, because I just didn't find enough.
What do you think of this status update thing? Yeah I know really original question. I guess you could tell me something else unrelated too.
Ambush by Koeskull
Yup. This is a yellow mongoose (species name, but I obviously exaggerated the yellow). They kind of look like foxweasels.
 I used 3 brands of markers and a very inky pen, kind of trying out a different style. It was fun to do.
Stipple Skull by Koeskull
Stipple Skull
An assignment for a drawing class, basically just stippling an organic object as accurately as possible. First time I've really tried it.. because, well it's stippling. Really annoying at first, but pretty relaxing once you get going.
This is a coyote skull I have. I'm not sure if I'm going to do anything else in the background or not..
Baphomet by Koeskull
This took quite a while... Done with a cheap ballpoint pen. Really underrated medium.

The head is inspired by a Jacob's sheep, which has four horns like that.
I feel like I'm the only person that likes drawing hands. Everything was actually drawn from memory except the hooves and parts of the head.. so I don't want critique please.
Non-sexualized boobs really shouldn't need a mature tag. :roll:
I made a Facebook page for my photography which you can find here:…
And the one I made before for my art:…

I'd like to get more likes, so I'd really appreciate it if you shared it. :) Otherwise it's mostly people who were on my friends list seeing them again. Thank you!
(I'm re posting this since it got pushed down in the same day with another journal.)
