    3D Mermaid Tail Creator/Customizer

    Over the last month I've been working on a secret project and now I think it is time for it to enter beta.

    So I present to you:

    3D Mermaid Tail Maker

    Hopefully it will help professional and amateur tail makers in realizing their designs.

    Since this is in beta there are bound to be some issues.

    This site requires an HTML 5 compatible browser and a decent video card. However, if you have purchased a laptop or phone within the last 4 years and everything is up to date it should be fine.

    Depending on your internet connection textures may take some time to load.
    - If the tail is lacking scales, wait a little bit while the bump map loads.

    Also, if the parts of the tail appear to either be all white or all black, select any hidden patterns or change a color it should fix that.

    Please do not pester me about adding more styles of flukes, fins, or patterns. I am working on making more on my own, but this is a side project for me and I have little time to spare.

    If something doesn't work, you can either reply to this thread, or send me a personal message through MerNetwork.
    PLEASE DO NOT POST THIS ANYWHERE ELSE, I AM NOT READY FOR IT TO BE FULLY RELEASED INTO THE WILD. Thank you!


    If you have the time, could anyone who visits the site let me know if it works or not and include the info below?
    Type of Device used (PC, Mac, iPhone, Android, etc...)
    Browser used (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, etc...)
    Operating System version (iOS 8, windows 7, Maverick, OSX, Ubuntu 4.4, etc...)

    If you have any ideas that you would think would improve the experience (other than adding more options) please feel free to share and I will take them into consideration.

    Thank you for trying it out, and please feel free to post any designs you come up with here.
    I will be keeping track of further progress here. Thank you again and have fun!

    Here's an example:

    Understandable! I should probably step away from mernetwork instead of constantly refreshing the page.

    It's awesome! I was helping out in the early stages and it's a fun thing to put your possible designs into.

    The options to change color and style appear but not the actual tail itself. I'm using an iPhone 4s

    What version of iOS are you running? I do not think iOS7 and below support webGL / HTML 5.

    I wish there were more options for fluke shape and options for spine fin and the other fins too cuz as it is right now yes it works well and you can design colors but thats about it and there are no options for patterns or anything for the main part of the tail.....

    idk these are just some things I wish this tail maker thing had available...

    ^ he literally just asked you not to say that as this is early stages and he's planning that for future....I actually thought you were saying it to be funny at first but I see you're serious, lol


    I think you're gonna revolutionize tail designing!

    They are still working on it... So there will be more options eventually.

    Here is what I came up with! I love how fast you can edit the colors and I love it how you are not limited on color choices.

    Edit: Not sure if this is plausible or not, but I didn't see a way to "save" swatches to make sure the colors of various pieces match exactly...
