Every now and then you come across something that is truly unique. I've never before seen anyone paint in 3D... Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori paints fish on layer upon layer of poured resin, building up each fish slice by slice. The results are incredibly lifelike, even after you know how it was done.
For more photos, check out This Is Colossal, in this Flickr set by Dominic Alves and on the artist's site.
