Actually I couldn't decide what to do in a limited timeframe, so I went experimental on these two. Use of glitter on the tree and rock/ cast iron texture attempt on the second fishlike form plus gloop for the liquid/ glazing base.

Thank You, dear Anna, Jasmine and Jibes!

Great experiments Cesare. I especially like the whale. I think kids would love it in an illustration-so 3 D and textured.

I am convinced to take out full advantage of these tests, great work dear friend.;):):)

... and I dindn't use any 3-D trick or sticker on this whale (or anywhere else), dear Sandra! Oil and chalk on three layers for texturing (with gloop pen, airspray, pencil and feltpen only on and around the eye) and my mind to guess the right shading to simulate 3-D. The liquid is substantially gloop pen. Glad You like them and thank You!

Thank You, dear Albert! Why not to show an experiment result even if it's not intended to be an artpiece?

Grašias Javier! The whale/ fish was another experiment I made to get a sort Andrea-like object. Obviously there would be many more textures and skills for me to develop to approach the stunningly realistic and artistic results of Andrea ...:o

Thank You, dear Pat! I like tests and experiments, but I eventually don't use a scientific approach on my paintings. :D
