Shot another last night, but it's pretty close to the one at the beginning of the thread ....

I think it's time to go back to the drawing board ....it's not bad, but I definitely think it could be a lot better .

bo is the master of perch - sunfish, bluegill, you name it. If anyone can get you going in the right direction it is him.

From what I have seen, it is not going to take long before you are right up there with greats on this site. Like Brad was saying, change is subtle and hard to see until you look back and compare. It is not hard to see that you have the touch so the journey should not be too hard.

for my money the one at the beginning of the thread is the best one. sometimes when you try to keep improving on a pattern it has the opposite affect. on some of them you just have to call it done and walk away.
remember with this stuff...less is more.

Most recent effort is really good...the purple-ish shading along the center line seals the deal. Doing three color patterns gets pretty old, pretty quick...don't be afraid to experiment...BC is one of the most creative guys on this subforum...by the way! Good to know the step by step posts are helping with your artwork. Very impressed with your progress in such a short time popcorn2
