I did this because I got a comment talking about my perspective in drawing and how I should practice by drawing objects. Well I already had and so I got an idea to draw a fantasy item still life and post it up to show my still, unanatomy side of drawing. It think it turned out quite well. The items are arranged nicely in my opinion, but a few of them did not turn out as expected. But I had a lot of fun doing this picture.

Hmm, take your time. And don't worry about erasing. Sit back and really study what you're drawing. Practice more...your bottles look rubbery because they are bending and your shading needs help.

It's very cool. Some of the things look a tad...bendy, though...

This might sound stupid but the head should be cracked more and you should be able to see the blade through his eye socket

why should the skull be cracked more? maybe some types of skulls crack like that! Also, look carefully, you can see the end of the sword through it. It’s just a small part. And even if you couldn’t, why should it show? What if it’s a small blade that ends before the eye socket? GOD!
