    Dave,

    I've come to the conclusion that all you are doing is taking frozen, fesh fish and nailing them to the wall, and then taking a picture while they are still gasping for air....cause they look so darn real!

    I always look forward to your pics!

    :)

    Kerby...

    p.s. Dennis, yes that is my first Grayling...and yes you can't see all the different scale tippings in the pic.
     

  3. WOW!! Who needs live/fresh reference when we have UFD's work to go by. It's almost hard to believe work like that is even possible.
     
  4. just finished another nice sized bluegill. People need to start keeping more bass around here.

    Hey guys, thanks for the warm welcome back into the TWIFP! (My return might be short-lived for another little while because hopefully I'll go under the knife and get my metal bits removed next week.)

    Kerby, wow, you have been busy - I keep going back and looking at your grayling - nice job!

    The bluish iridescent tipping on GulfCoastWF's little yellow fish is very sweet indeed.

    ahhh... now I can concentrait on birds for a while... cant see how you finheads can make a living doing things with scales...it took me forever to paint these little boogers.

    here is my little finished reef scene. all of the corals and sponges in the middle structure are sculpted and molded in liquid plastic. the little guys are also repros with clear cast peck and cudal fins. I toped it off with real corals around the edges.

    you fish guys are un-freakin-believable!

  17. Lowell,

    i don't understand why you would just limit yourself to feather dedication when you can airbrush and habitat like that....

    AWESOME...!!!
