This was a 37 inch Yellow Fin Tuna caught in Pacific Costa Rican, offshore of Marina Pez Vela, Quepos. Printed over rice paper using the traditional Gyotaku direct method. Tuna are species with tinny scales, as faster is the fish, smaller they are. Using rice paper instead of fabric or cloth can make those scales pop and get printed with incredible details from the fish. Have a close look at the pictures :). Tunas are ths most dificult fish to print due to their roundness, that’s why I did the body first and then I continued cuting and printing the fins one by one.
