This little bugger was pretty easy to pull off. I got a few small wooden cradle panels (sold at your local art shop, and are usually pretty inexpensive) I painted a wash of baby blue on the whole thing. Let it dry and then sketched on the image.
Painted in everything that was background, when it was dry I painted the sides and put some small highlights on the eyes and nose. Aaaand Done!
I also tried my hand at creating a "Day of the Dead" style Skull, I'm not ecstatic about how it turned out, maybe I'll have better luck next time. :)
