Artists Reference: 24 Skull Images

I’ve been doing a bit of re-organization on the categories and taxonomy for the site, and one of the new ones is Image Galleries.  Any post where more than two or three images are a substantial part of the post will be tagged as a gallery, to make them easier to find and flip through.

This gallery is to go along with the previous drawing instruction videos.  To the best of my knowledge, all these images of the skull are in the public domain. There are several variations, angles, and levels of detail.

At some point in the future, I’ll work on other galleries for art reference… Full skeletons, various specific bone sets, animals, photo-reference, etc.  I’d think this is a good start, though. :-)

Click on any image for slide-show mode. You can mouse-over for navigation arrows, or use the arrow keys on your keyboard.

    Sir, good day ..

    I just want to ask about the 11th, 12th, and 13th picture.

    Are there any labels available? or what was your source in obtaining those pictures? I have been looking for those kinds of pictures but with labels.

    Thank you

    If I’m not mistaken, these specific illustrations are by Sir Henry Morris.

    You can find Google Books versions of Morris’s Human Anatomy online, but a good copy of Gray’s Anatomy would have the same information… I’ve just added links Grays and some other anatomy books in the “Skeleton Shop” link above.

    There’s also a coloring book in the “younger folks” category that I think would be good for adults and older students, too. It has full labels and you get to do the color coding to your own preferences. :-)
