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.

Wonderful composition and story, Dave.
Lots of great handwork on the enviroment and scene.
And it it's a great childhod memory, too.
Love the arm in the water to support the story.#;oD
I really love the uncle's thoughts... he wanted to make Dave happy..
Even if it meant cheating a bit upon him.. at least Dave was happy about it, until he learned the truth.#;o)
A fine dedication to a fantastic artist and friend.
Masterly accomplished.

Another fine image. The warm lighting gives the whole scene the right emotional feel. Especially like the arms sticking out of the bottom, which would supply a good comic twist even if you didn't know the story
