60,000th Kiriban Prizes by merimask 60,000th Kiriban Prizes by merimask
For my 60,000th kiriban I decided to do something a little different. Rather than award a prize to just whoever snagged a screencap of a pageview number, I chose to thank the faithful and polite Deviants who have always supported my art here.

So, these three goldfish keychains were made especially for that purpose. Awarded to :iconsmokewithoutmirrors: , :icontreyos: , and :iconellygator: , for being awesome Deviants and really nice people. You can be sure that if these three folks are watching your artwork, they'll always leave wonderful, insightful comments and brighten your gallery. :-)

The goldfish are replicas from one of my most popular mask designs here on DA: my Japanese Goldfish mask. Each one is hand carved and hand shaped from 8oz veg-tanned tooling leather, sealed for durability and intended to last for years to come. They're specially signed and dated, to commemorate my 60,000th kiriban.

Congratulations to the winners!

Ooh, I love these. Very elegant. Do you sell anything like this in your Etsy store?

These are wonderful! The gentle shaping to give them a more realistic 3D effect is great. I'd love to see these in a thin, vaguely rectangular flowing piece of wall art - maybe a foot wide at the widest portion and some three-ish feet long - to go over a bed, or doorway, or couch. Fish in a stream, or pond. The gold would stand out fantastically against blues and greens (as so aptly demonstrated by your choice of background for these beauties!)
