    AWESOME!

    But the pics doesn't do it justice, the 1st pic almost looks like a tarpon taking something on a TREBLE HOOK! But I doubt that is what it is

    Hi Ricko
    How did you get that fish detail to be made so small and so clear? Looks stunning.

    It is called scrimshaw , first of i use a mother of a magnifying glass to have a proper look at the blank while doing the stippling ( scrim) The art work : i re-drawn a picture i found , minimize it to fit the blank , unfortunately the detail disappear in minimizing it , but this is where the ART part should step in and make it work.

    thanks again.
