A rare glimpse into my style:
It spent a long time like this on my bench. Almost 2 years.
Once I become inspired I pick it up and start working on it.
I work on most stuff on an on and off basis. Hard to track my time.
Overall for the most part it took like 2 weeks to complete.
The carving was quick. The foil was long because I hate the seems
foil creates and I scratched in the scales.
I use a hairdryer to dry the paint now so I can apply as many colors as I want very fast. I use about 18-20 colors. Looking back at this pick I stayed pretty close to my idea drawing.
I chose to remove the 9th horizontal fish because I wanted the overall
lure to have a more "fish" profile.
