    I have been following this thread for years but never posted any pics of my work so don't beat me up too much LOL!
    Here is a 30" 11lb walleye from the Columbia R. that was recently completed for a client.

  4. Warthog, I won best professional replica at the worlds with it! I guess even a blind chicken gets a little corn every now and then. ;)

    Thanks Jason S. You guys saying not to beat you up or that you don't post pictures because of your lack of confidence need to realize that you're doing some very nice work. Keep it coming.

    Thanks for your kind words guys. I was a bit nervous about posting any pics of my work because I have seen some truly spectacular work on this thread. It is one of my favorites to view!

    Nice "eye" Jeff. Looks like a lot of care went into that mount. I would be very pleased with it.

    nice one wishbone... unfortunate for glare covering some of the detail work on the head, im sure its just as good as the rest of the paint job :)

    Hoooo Hooooo! Another exotic to paint. Saddleback grouper. Not much reference on Google. Seems quite a variable fish. Most had way more spotting than the reference pic I got, which was not that great. Would have liked to work from a better pic, but customer wanted it just like it is. Probably won't paint another in my lifetime.
