Here is some work work in progress shots of the honey skull. I started with a basic rough of a skull.

I then divided the image up into squares forming a grid which followed the contours of the skull. Also colouring and shading it to give me an idea if it would work.

Later I then roughed out the shape of the honecomb using the grid as a guide

The guide layers and skull rough were removed and this would be my base layer for working off.

Some close up images on the site here.
