John,
In the images above, I broke up the forms of these creatures along natural lines to add interest to them, but also to give me freedom in how to approach making the form. If you wanted, you might break up your fish form along natural lines to make the fabbing a little easier. Also, you can hide seams under overlapping parts that may reflect color changes of the fish or just your own interpretation of something you see in a fish.





The feathers on the back of this merganser are plug welded in place. They don't conceal a weld line, but they certainly could...
