Please vote for your ONE favorite entry for the 2016 Kwikfish winner!

The KRAWN




Edit: We have his permission!
This was nominated from I-Builtit's from the 2012 contest.
I believe the kwik is emulating a prawn, or something else digging into the ground, therefore one that looks like a prawn would be money.

I-Builtit's design, red hooks.

-------------------------

Scale Flicker



This is also a silver base kwikfish. All colors are meant to be fluorescent with the exception of the blue which is meant to be transparent and gradually fade into the silver body. Something that is hard to portray without fancy software!

----------------------------

"Ghost Reaper"

-- White body, Chartreuse / Green / Black bill and corresponding pox dots with blue base dot.



---------------------------

EBOLA



Metallic pink base ... representing diffusely inflamed skin
Bloodshot red eyes
.... representing the classic and diagnostic hemorrhagic eye
Red-on-black puddle dots.... representing the diffuse skin lesions
Black bill... representing facial necrosis, esp the nose
Red butt... representing the stains from bloody diarrhea and rectal bleeding.
Morbid, eh? Or should I say DEADLY?
I know.... I'm a sick puppy.
But I bet it would be a "killer" high-contrast design that'll catch fish.

--------------------------------

Tiger Stoplight




Matte red yellow green. Glow inner eyes. Black tiger stripes.
--------------------------------

The Dude


Please remember "A couple of the patterns go beyond our capability to replicate in the contest."
Hi Jennie,

The Kwikfish contest looks awesome and as always there are a bunch of great looks and some very fishy patterns. As the contest moves into voting for the top 5, I wanted to get some info to the community about what can and cannot be accomplished with the Ifish Kwikfish. A couple of the patterns go beyond our capability to replicate in the contest.

Looking at the top 5 where the vote currently stands, there's the Krawn (very cool name), Ghost Reaper, Scale Flicker, Ebola & The Dude. Krawn and Ghost Reaper would take some modification to produce.

On the Krawn, the color shading and blends would become a little more rigid. We'll have to work that within what can be accomplished. The fades are very difficult to control in a high volume situation.

On the Ghost Reaper, the dots show 4 colors. That would have to be simplified. To make the dots work, the flo colors require primer over the top of the previous color. The number of layers here is beyond the ability of this program.

On The Dude...have to have a look at the color change in the base color and find out more about the thought there.

Scale Flicker and Ebola are pretty good to go and work within pretty standard capabilities.

Main thing here is that we don't want to create a lot of disappointment after the fact if there's a shift between what's described in the image and what can be accomplished in the paint booth.

Thank you,

Please, no comments on this poll. All comments can go here.

Unfortunately, I can't close it to comments, or you couldn't vote on the poll. Not good! :)

Thank you!

Please alert the mods, by using the little triangle with the exclamation point in it, bottom left of every post, if anything else needs to be moved to the comment thread.
