    Did anyone happen to save his tutorial anywhere or could explain how to paint one? Ive tried several times to get them to look nice but have been unsuccessful with the paint layering and it seems as if he got rid of his website, any help would be nice!

    Breakthrough magazine has a good one done on wood.
    Their a difficult fish to get right. References, break each section down and a good airbrush helps most of all.

    I remember some of the colors but not all of them, specifically anyway.

    Raw Umber
    Burnt Sienna
    Mars Black
    Cadmium Red
    Yellow (Naples or Indian or Turners maybe)
    Green (Hookers maybe)
    White gesso/createx pearl
    Blue (Cerulean or cerulean hue maybe)
    Various iridescent colors (purple blue orange)
