    Hey Rick!! Glad to see you are still alive... personally, I am still thawing out down here.....come on double digits! Anyways, I thought I would repost my pic in the "official" post.

    Here is the 3rd Rainbow trout that I ever mounted. I dont think I have posted this one before. The red dot on his side was a natural mark and the customer wanted it to show on the mount. This is mounted on a carved body with a cast head....

    Paul, love the worm markings especially. I've yet to do a catfish Mayhem, nice coloring. All very nice stuff (again)!!!

    Here's a 6+ pound Smallie skin mount I did for a customer before all the snow came. Even though the "model" holding the fish has a mop on HIS head, it is indeed my youngest boy begrudgingly helping me out!

    You guys will have to excuse Rick, he's still getting over paint fume overdose for "false advertising" on Cecil's Birthday. Just want to say to all, nice fish. Paul, your Brookie was definitely not painted on a Tuesday night, nice!! MK, nice Muskie. Mike, what can we say, great cat. Looks a lot better than Bryan's "catshark" ;D. And Marty, I love that Smallie. Looks like your son is biting off a piece of that driftwood. Feed the kid would ya.

    Thanks Marty, Doug, Rick and Mike.
    It's really just a scribble ;)

    Marty: you are very observant...it is airbrush, acrylic(hand brushed) and a tad bit of charcoals/pencils.

    Mayhem: yeah I have admired Derek DeYoung's work for a while...he definately captures some feeling in his paintings. He is truly obsessed with trout...I love it! It looks like he sells a ton of it too.
    A lot funner than grinding and filling seams wouldn't ya think?

    MK: I absolutely love that Brown...nice job with the violet shimmer.
  17. Being a total "fiishhead", I enjoy creating a variety of fish species.............red belly piranha

    Hey Matt! Sweet brown! I really like that misty violet as well! Nice job man!

    FW!!! WOW! Way cool fish with lil teeth! Man you do beautiful work!

    Here is a few of Mr. Fred Pride of PA. Fred finished his Striped Bass today and I told him if he tipped out his steelhead tonight I would put his Striper up! LOL! Fred did a great job and I posted a paint schedule in the training section.
