 Your work is FANTASTIC! At first, I thought these were photographs of real fishes in dishes, then I noticed some brush strokes on one of your turtles, and thought they were clay sculptures that you had painted and placed in the resin. But, after reading through some of your stuff, I discover that you paint everything on the resin! I was not expecting that! These are awesome! I mean, I was impressed when I thought they were sculptures, but I am even more impressed that they are paintings!

Your work is beautiful! I would love to see more of your work at an art gallery! Your kind of work is very interesting, a kind of work that I've never seen before. Do you sell your work at all? Just out of pure curiosity!

Amazing work and a technique worth diving into. A question: although you already stated that the technique doesn't work in a transparent holder, how is the build-up of the illustration? In other words: how many layers do you use and do you paint the layers similar as if they are slices of the animal or do you use another way to add reality to it?

In general I think the tricks here is to achieve the 'depth' even with one layer. Painting on the single layer enough to create an illusion (have a look at 'calmness' under the work pebble face) By adding 1-2 more layers over it gives you the advantage of 'under painting' using a more translucent acrylic paint for the finishing.
Try to think of the concept of Photoshop's layer.

Let me know if you need more explanations.
