I like that a lot - looks like you're making the most of the paint's qualities rather than fighting it (like I do)!

Strong confident style. I like the way you've painted the pieces down the bottom. :cool:

Interesting study. A skull was a subject used quite often in ancient art.

I know this is intended to be very rough, so talking a finesse detail is really not necessary. But if you think about it: Because the painting is very painterly in approach, I would break up the flat background wall behind the upper portion of the skull. It doesn't fit with the overall feel. Even some subtle painterly swipes with the brush and a very slightly different color would keep it from looking separate from the painting at large.

Other than that, it's a cool image.

Adjusted a few things. The background is a nod to D Akey. The back edge of table is evident and the darkness adds drama. Caesar your right, I ordered a Human skull replica to study, real ones are out of my price range.
A couple highlights and dark accents made.
