Rex Sole

Here's a new one. Rex Sole done in photoshop for NOAA I love this gig. It's simply amazing how different each fish species is. One thing I tried is to make the skin look like it is translucent. Like there is something going on under the layers of skin. What I did  was add a layer that was low res, blew it up so it looked out of focus and then I worked on layers that were above that. So that out of focus texture gives the sense of depth with in the layers of the skin. Fun stuff.
