    You do very nice work Ryan. Great job painting fish, which I find very difficult. I'm just a part time hack, but here are a few of my current / recent projects.

    Two skin mount walleye for a pedestal mount.

    Finished up a whitetail for a friend.

    Finished up my first Sitka Blacktail. Mounted for a friend that went on a hunting trip with me last December.

    Thank you for the kind words.
    Walleyes are looking pretty good! What are you going to tip them with?. I don't do deer currently. Just fish and birds.
    On the Sitka the eyes look even and level. That's like 80% of the battle right there! Keep up the good work man!

    Finished up a buck for another friend. First time using an OTS form and I was very pleased with how it mounted up.

    I'm the owner of that smallie and it turned out great. I went with Ryan due to another one of his smallmouth's I saw on here and I was not disappointed.
    I would not hesitate to use him again.
