Pirate Rock Skull by SurfTiki Pirate Rock Skull by SurfTiki
This here Rock Skull is a testament to the Pirate nature of finding cool locations for thier hideouts.

This Skull is from the Treasure Island (ti) in Las Vegas out front where the pirate show is right on the strip. This was taken at night thier and came out amazingly well.

Pentax Optio 750z.

Thanks for looking!

Update: when this was posted i found out that it was featured on the front page, that floored me and by the time i thought of it i missed my chance to take a screen shot of it.
Update 2: as of Summer 2014 this no longer is in front of the Treasure Island Hotel Casino, it has been replaced with store fronts. SAD FACE!

Great shot. When i first saw this immediate thought was the Punisher. For a night shoot you did well.

Thanks, it turned out much better than i thought.
And Punisher works well for it...also have gotten Grey Skull on it as well.
Guess it could be Castle skull Hideout of Frank AKA Punisher.

It definitely does. I thought it was acrylics, or digital art.

Thanks, it does have some painterly quilties to it, i feel chalk pastels would fit this piece well.
Dont do digital as im a hands on kind of artist, even tho for college i did some.

Aw, that sucks. But at least it's still up so you could get a picture. Now, even if they end up tearing it down, you still have a piece of it. :)
