Very impressive, especially for a 2nd piece in a medium. I like that the skull part seems to mesh with the canvas. It's a very "I am art" thing.

My only critique is to use more color. make it work for you. A skull isn't just white and grey....infact there is virtually no grey or white on a skull when you really look at one. What a painter is actually painting are the colors of light and shadow ontop of the object, defining its form. depending on the light, im sure this skull would have had a lot more yellow, orange, blue, green, yellow ochre, etc. in it.
