Skulls are always grinning.

Love the shading work at the fore of the skull... have to say that it sorta looks, um... detached from itself if that makes any sense (the back half of the skull sorta seems indistinct and unattached... maybe a better way to say it? ...blegh. Nevermind. I have no idea what I'm on about.)

'Memento Mori'... I haven't heard that word in awhile. It means "Don't forget death."

We had a similar type of exercise way back when I started art school, except that we had to draw a detail of /any/ part of a skeleton, instead of just a skull.

It's not only about ponies. There is some general drawing skill required as well, right? Maybe try to work on something else sometimes :3

I totally understand that. I aswell am trying to improve on drawing anything else as well. Ponys is just the most representative because of tumblr.
Although, since you did this for academy, are you studying in some art related field? (pretty obvious question... meh).
My only source of learning drawing is a book I got myself called "Drawing on the right side of the brain" by Betty Edwards...

I'm self-taught artist. And this painting is going to be part of my portfolio for first tests on academy. Which means I want to study in art related field

wow. then this is even more amazing.
maybe is started to late with drawing, but I'm actually happy to see what is possible even before attending academy. I'm sure you'll get into academy with this.
And it makes me eager to draw more. :D
Out of curiousity, how long and how much time do you spend drawing? When did you start?

Age of my dA account is pretty much the time I spent on drawing ;P

Give yourself time. And practice, that's the easiest and only advice I can give

Woh, beautiful! There's just the nose that bother me, but I don't really know why. Maybe it seem too big?
