Honesty question. Why when people ask for critiques on pieces are they typically given for the paint only? Many have terrible anatomical issues. Why not try and help them through that and start with something that it pleasing to the eye then move to paint? Ive always viewed it like this. You can put a great paint job on a poorly done skinmount or replica and it will still look like shit. Or you can put a ok paint job on a nicely done replica or skinmount and it will look good. So much emphasis gets put on paint work and not enough( in my opinion) gets put into actually making it look like a fish first. Sorry just had a customer send pics of a 22 brookie that took a lot of sculpting work( blank for it didn’t really exsist) that got severely damaged in shipping. A bit grumpy this morning.
