Since I turned the big 50 today, Jason chose the world's biggest trout species, the Taimen, for this weeks fish image. I went with a triptych illustration for this one in the hopes to exaggerate the size of this bad ass trout. I basically carved out the negative space around the image and threw in a bit of color. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Jason turned me onto the Mongolia River Outfitters. As their website states, "The Guides for Ghenghis Khan's Home Waters". MRO provides guided fly-fishing adventures for Taimen, Amur Trout and Lenok from their private camps located in the Mongolian wilderness. Swing by their site and check out the great pictures and what they have to offer!
