  3. Here are some higher resolution pictures of the eyes I show at the end of the video.

    Largemouth Bass (Florida strain)


    Lake trout


    Largemouth Bass (Northern strain)


    Rainbow trout




    White bass


    Ill be doing a write up on how I set these eyes on a replica that is hollow, in the very near future. I will be using the Whitebass for that.
    It was a bunch of fun doing the video Jeff, and I hope it helps some people out.
    There are so many ways to paint these, its just a blast.

    Well, you learn something new every day, for some reason I always thought the K in Knuth was silent. ;)

    Oh, and the video was pretty good too. Thanks for taking the time to do this, I'm sure it will help a lot of people, myself included.

    Nice close ups Josh, I especially like the Walleye in your hand, White bass and the laker eyes.

    Thanks for that video. I really enjoy the freedom of these eyes. The techniques you used in this video were awesome. How do you get the cloudy/hazy effect for the pupil on the walleye. That is a very difficult look for me to pull off. Thanks again. your work is very motivating for me.

    I guess I should have clarified myself. It seems to me, some people have voices that don't seem to initially sound like you think they would when all you have seen is pics of them! The best example I can think of is the first time I heard the ex coach of the Texas Tech Red Raider football team. Having only seen him (Mike Leach) on the sideline on TV, I had never heard him talk. His voice is extremely low and loud, not what I had envisioned in my mind. Thats what I was implying. Josh's voice sounded exactly as I had in my minds eye, thats what I thought was weird, not his voice. Sorry for any misunderstanding, as I have never talked to Josh Knuth on the phone, only via keyboard!
