This is for a close friend of mine Dave, best known as (Heathcroft). Dave is a magnificent Poser artist and creates some of the most amazing fantasy art you will ever see. His Castle Stories are always a treat and among my favorites. They are always filled with countless colorful characters and the story brings them to life. He has a great sense of humor and always manages to add a little bit to his stories. I'm grateful for his friendship to me during tough times and consider myslef lucky to have gotten to know him so well. This story is such a treat and I only hope I can bring it to life as well as he did for me. Thanks for listening,
Fish Tales (For Heathcroft): When Dave was six he lived in a hotel close to the sea. He was a fan of fishing and loved to watch the old men gather and fish off the rocks of the sea wall. One August Dave was given a fiber glass fishing pole as a present while his uncle Ralph was visiting from Lancashire. Neither of them knew much about fishing but wanted to go. Everyone came outside and his Father Malcolm stood quietly watching and smiling alongside his Mum Eileen, as if they both knew a secret. Dave's sister Maureen was laughing at him and kept him distracted while his Uncle walked down to talk to one of the men who had caught several fish. His Uncle Ralph hired one of the younger men to swim down and put one of his fish on Dave's line without him knowing. Pretty soon Dave felt a mighty tug at his line, and pulled for all he was worth. Almost instantly out came a huge grey mullet thrashing about on his pole. Dave ran around showing his family his amazing catch, and was so proud. It was only years later that they told him the truth about his first fish and this fishing tale.

What a great story! It was a very sweet thing his family did for him in this instance. I really like your illustration of the scene as well, you captured the wonder and excitement on the boy's face quite well, and the interaction between the parents is great. Well done!

what a wonderful story, dave ;) and your work on this scene if not your best, certainly competes for that position...the expression/pose of the little boy is so well done, especially how he is holding the rod which is resting against his leg...many thanks for the smile ;)

Oh Dave...what can I say? When you asked me to tell you about that story I never imagined that the result would be anything like this - its absolutely amazing!
And it brings it all back to me, particularly as my Dad died very young. I'm sure he is smiling now and seeing it through my eyes.
Technically it is superb, and I love the touch of my uncle putting his wallet back in his pocket- priceless!
You are a wonderful friend Dave, and I really appreciate all the work you have put in this image. Thank you so much. Dave
