    You did a fine job for your first fish
    Now a few things from our sponsors
    Don’t open the mouth so wide that your giving it a broken jaw look.
    Work on fins so that their not flagged or away from the body.
    Take more meat and bones from the caudal area.
    Look into eye setting and eye coloration.
    Shrinkage, head, mouth, fins .
    When using real fins, they should be backed with silk span and glued on, trimmed to look real.
    Painting isn’t bad but you need to look a reference to see what’s really going on ( life reference)
    All in all nice
