This is my favorite, oh my gosh! How it is evident it is a redo of the original, staying true to the form and color but adding more ZESTTT

Those fish are amazingly beautiful! The left ones are already good, but with the "After" picture next to it... They just have such a beautiful coloring, shading and gleaming!

This is really good! I'm really loving your ability to create depth in the art. They look just like mine, before they died. Well, nice job again :D

Left one is more colorful, but the right one looks so realistic, I could almost touch it.
Really hard to choose which one is better.

WOW :O, what have you done! Very well done ;)
I love the "Take an old work and do it again".
I've done few times it and I've amazed of the results!
I think we should do this often IF we find enough time though :D

Well done again ;)
