Good to see you every now & then Manny!
Beautiful work everyone!! Always my favorite thread!
This carved SMB is a Canadian government commission to illustrate the WavyRay mussel (the orange mussel in the foreground) extinction soon to be. This mussel needs the SMB to propagate its larvas in the Great Lakes. When the SMB approaches the mussel to attack it, this one simply "spits" her larvas in the SMB face. The larvas cling to the SMB gills and live in symbiosis for a certain lenght of time then unhook from their host. Unfortunately, this underwater scene should disapear in a near future due to pollution and Zebra mussel invasion. SMB, rocks, mussel carved from Tupelo and gravel made with plaster...Painted with Rick tutorial on his SMB DVD!
Cool SMB scene. Great work everyone.
2 White Bass in the works.
So when are you going to skin them Timjo? I see that all you have done so far is remove the paired fins. ;D
