Really nice job bud, I liked mine alot more before I added the dots on it too. Only thing I see being an issue with your paint job is I only see 1. Need to do at least 2 of them at a time so if you loose one to a fish you have a second one.
What size scale mask did you use? If fits the bait perfectly.
Shot mine with iridescent and pearls, but I'm liking yours better. Mine was difficult to get the fades on such a small body.
