Heads Will Roll by AlexUnderwood Heads Will Roll by AlexUnderwood
This was illustrated for a rhyme book. The particular rhyme I created this piece for was "Mary Mary Quite Contrary"
The real meaning behind this children's rhyme was the death sentence of beheading Queen Mary executed to more than 300 people during her reign.

I had to zoom in to see everything. Wow. I like the way this was painted. The two things I like most? The head, and the hand holding it. Oh gosh, the veins on the bone of the neck! Ugh! This is great.

this needs more tones more colors. use color to make skin darker instead of using black.

I didnt actually use black to make the skin darker I used a very deep red. And I think too much colour would make it confusing, but thanks I guess.

Allright well, the paint still looks a little boring.
real skin also has allot of colors in it, so i doubt that would be confusing

I thought you meant more colours in the whole piece.
Look, I appreciate your criticism, but now it just seems like your slating my work, Im not an expert and by the looks of things neither are you, Im still young so there plenty of time to improve.
