    Now I have to go a buy Ultra Scatter Pro to make an image that just sprung to mind after seeing these and using these fishies. :p

    Thank-you for all the comments. The transparency added to the fins did wonders. It added just enough imperfection to add to the realism.

    The Poser FF version is done, so I'll do the conversions for DS starting tomorrow and hopefully have this set wrapped up by the end of the weekend. Your seabirds will no longer go hungry.

    While I should have quit for the day, I didn't...

    I started playing with the DS version in Iray... the fish and oil aren't quite where I want them but all-in-all... it's looking pretty good.

    They look sad...except for that one, second down from the top, on the bottom stack. He looks angry! It could be because his mouth is open, and the eye is partially covered by the fish above him.

    I sent off my stinky fish last week to HW's Quality Assurance team so they'll soon be available to feed your hungry birds, HW pets, Dawn and Dusk, or simply stink up your runtime.

    I did this piece for the main promo image featuring some Greater and Lesser Scaups, a Redhead and Ruddy Ducks (all from SBRM Waterfowl2: Sea and Diving Ducks) foraging on Nerd3D's "Waves at the Beach" rendered in Iray.

    I decided to add-in the two other fish tins (anchovies and sardines) into the set...

    The art on the Alici (Italian for Anchovies) tin is a 12+ year Poser render from me. It depicts a drunk and passed out pirate with a woodpecker hammering away on his peg leg.

    I "think" Ken meant the render was 12+ years old, not that it took 12+ years to render. :rofl:

    I guess it was even longer again that I thought -- 16 years. Here's the actual image posted at Renderosity... A Sobering Surprise by KenG Poser Humor

    It was kind of fun paging through some of my old work posted at Rendo which goes back to 2000

    For a future installment in your frogs series, I hope you will include this interesting family of frogs, the Glass Frogs. The glass frogs are a group of small arboreal frogs of the family Centrolenidae. The general background colour of most glass frogs is primarily lime green. The abdominal skin of some members of this family is transparent and the internal organs are visible through it. Here are some images:
