Clay Fish

After finishing the head portion of I Remember, I went on to create the hanging fish. The fish will never actually hang; the strings will be fitted in the image later via Photoshop. I chose to use modeling clay to make the fish. I used one decent sized ball of clay, and destroyed each fish after completion  to create the next one. I tried not to get too detailed and decided to ignore scales and stripes. Instead I focused on shape and shadow. I have used modeling clay before in conjunction with the overlay tool in Photoshop, and I have found that they complement each other quite well. I was able to add color and definition without losing shadow and shape. I still may find an alternative object to use for the eyes. Originally I was going to treat the eyes digitally as well, but now I believe that it shouldn’t be hard to solve with a real object.
