  1. The ribcage shown is just in pencil, and after scratching it out and inking it, there were way to many little blood vessel tubes and imperfections in the bone that no amount of sanding and polishing could fix. Normally I would just meticulously pick them out with my scribe, but this piece just had too many, so I just re-sanded, polished and waxed it. The customer was fine with just the two skulls on it though, so everything worked out.
