Dead Tree Sunset Deer Skull by Shadyufo Dead Tree Sunset Deer Skull by Shadyufo
This is another commission I just finished up the other day. The client purchased another one of my skulls (the "Rainbow Raccoon" with the dead tree on it) and wanted a larger skull to go with it. They requested sunset colors.

I love this skull and am tempted to do one for myself now, haha! The tree branches run all along the back of the skull and up both antlers and the roots wrap around the snout. Very fun piece. I'll submit some more shots in a moment. :)

And again, I'm always open for commissions for pieces like this! Working on a couple more right now in fact, so just drop me a note if you have something in mind. :)

is it ok if i paint my bull skull like this? it was looking really bland just hanging on my wall, he died of natural causes and its in my families culture to keep the skulls as a memorial to them, he always sat under the gum tree in our back yard and this reminded me of him

I think that would be awesome!

I'd just rather not see a bunch of these popping up for sale or anything. But for your own personal project go right ahead! Thank you for asking. I'd love to see it when you are finished. :)

May I ask if commissions can be sent overseas? I know quarantine tends to stop animal products but I wonder if the paint would act as treatment?
Reply
:iconshadyufo:
Shadyufo Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Hey there! I'm afraid I can't shipped them internationally. The US requires permits to export animal parts and they are more trouble than they are worth to obtain and pay for. Sorry about that!
