Title: Fish
Post by: Graham Lee on June 23, 2020, 11:12:00 AM
The challenge that Danielle and I have been doing was for a Fish this time around.
Usually we see a design and attempt to re create it.
This time though we just went with a picture of a Koi Karp.

This is the thread if you'd like to see the challenges for 2020,

So trying to get the Koi shape I tried some distortion.
I think the artwork let me down, the shape was OK but the mouth possibly too small?

This was version three of the Fish, completely different from version one and two.

And then we went back to the distortion Idea.
The artwork was getting there but I wanted to make a smaller mouth for the Fish and as I was
changing it over the body of the Koi popped and as yet I have not made another version.

I double stuffed Chocolate Brown into the White 321, this was a mistake as I was trying for
an off White so possibly just Ivory inside would have softened the colour tone down slightly.
We ended up with Grey  :(  I'm sure I will re-make again sometime.
