    Your fish are so great!
    I tried doin one yesterday, and I have done the eyes, and the fishbody, but I cant make the fins to work for me. :S The dont yet that curly that your fins are.
    Is it possible to take a picture on a fin and show me on a close-up? That would be so great, cause I really would like to finish my fancy fish!🙂
