I don't know, but I've done one! Quite interesting really, seeing how the bone shapes all the structures of the face. :)

I must say that i like people with some skin on their skull, the kisses are so much better ....but painterly speaking ("copespeaking") it's kissable....:)

Thanks everyone! Frisch, maybe I should put a big lipstick kiss on its forehead! Now there's an idea...... hmmmm. :)

Excellent anathomical study and painting!
The Longobard king Alboin used to drink wine in the skull of his wife Rosamund's father, i.e. Cunimund, the king of the Gepids he eventually defeated. So skulls may show to be both fascinating and useful ...:o

Caesar, I think this particular skull might leak the wine, it seems to have some cracks. Interesting, seeing the holes for the sinuses, the way the jaw hinges, the nasal cavity, and the teeth set into the bone. There's more lessons in this than I first thought.

Edit: Trying to make my skull more kissable for Frisch, here's my improvements!
