[Flashback Friday] 35. Watercolor Skull

Welcome to another addition of Flashback Friday.** This year the guest editors, Citizen Agent, Tatman, and myself, Azurafae, are taking turns counting down our personal favorite 17 skulls from the Original 365.25 Year. So please join us as we visit the archives and add our additional commentary on some of the original pieces.

#13 - 35. Watercolor Skull

Not only is this beautiful, but I know from experience, that making something like this takes a lot of patience and a steady hand. I like the use of light and shadow, it adds to the creepy factor of a skull. It also allows the details of the skull's structure to show nicely. This skull reminds me of old black and white horror movies. I imagine it would fit perfectly in an overgrown graveyard or in a secret crypt. It's a nice mix of horror and beauty.

**Flashback Friday was a weekly countdown of the fan selected top 52 skulls of Skull-A-Day 1.o. Each week during year 3.0 The Skullmaster posted the original skull along with some additional commentary in order from lowest to highest rated, with the #1 skull appearing in the last week of year 3.0, all 52 can be found here.
