    Ooo! Big scales!

    Not many tail makers do big scales, and looking at it here, they do look really nice! A proper grown up tail instead of the mini baby scales that everyone does.

    Thank you Jaffa.
    I love the Asia arrowana fish and these scales are an attempt at that, plus I use individual scales image usin baby scales on this huge extended tail it would take me forever just to scale it.
    I have four sizes of this scale type for seamless pattern and because they should be smaller towards waist line as those are ďnew growthĒ.

    Iím looking forward to sharing more with you all in the coming weeks.

    * Disclaimer * I will most likely will not be adding my markings to this tail as it is the prototype, I plan on a nice blue coloration.
    Like the mako mermen tail just blues.

    Yesssssss finally able to upload a picture here ! FYI the tail is empty but the thickness makes it hold itís shape. If your wondering foot pocket area is more or less where the dorsal fin is.

    IMPRESSIVE.......... CONGRATULATIONS. ALL YOUR YEARS OFF HARD WORK PAID OFF It looks really good, you wont even see the outline of your feet once its scaled. I relocated and haven't been on here in 2 years. Once i moved I never had the funds to complete mine, but i haven't given up.

    Can someone please get me back to the ocean before I suffocate... I need the water......

    Itís the best extended tail Iíve seen since H2O and Mako tails. And not just because I made it well maby a little. But it will be proven once itís finished and it surpasses even the mako tails. And that is the ultimate truth.

    Awwe thank you so much! Ever since I saw the fist extended tail by JMBFX Studios I was so in love I immediately began trying to reverse engineer it in my head and researching itís been more than five years since I first started and now Iím finally seeing Dawn again after many long nights of testing and planning and building I am so proud 🥲
