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!

I loved how it looked against the blue of the mask, but they're quite stunning on their own. Grats again to the winners!

Oh man...I'm jealous of these people... I love the iridescence, and with the background, I can almost see that koi pond... I can almost hear them go glub glub, and I can almost feel myself explode with glee when they their fish flakes... Oh no...! *blam*

Oh wow! These are so cute! I love the way you decided to look at the gold fish from the top instead of the side. The perspective gives a unique look to the fish. I also love the organic lines you use to capture the sense of motion in the fins. What a great way to reward faithful watchers! :D
