I borrowed that Devil Duck from my girlfriend. Went to the market twice (I had bought red grapes first). 5 little 12V lights were stuck through blue posterboard. I put hollow grapes on them. The duck's head turned out too dark, so I painted it with light. There's wax colour underneath the water, so the paper won't suck it up.

Thanks for this fun challenge Drew and Langdon!

I loved this one,thought it was top 10 or 20...must be the controversial topic. Still one of my top 3 picks

Oooooooh. Bad Ducky. Bad! No grapes for you!
Love the lighting. Maybe a little controversial on the composition, though?

nice, but I wish the "grape lights" weren't so bright -> overexposed. The upper right corner grape looks good, the others too bright.
