    He did a beautiful job on the sculpts. However, I would be extremely reticent about ordering a tail from him because of the inconsistencies in the quality. It always seems to be a roll of the dice whether you're going to get a quality piece of art or a rush job. Looking at the unhappy mers' comments in the past over the years I have been here, I would certainly devote that chunk of money to someone with a proven track record.

    That spade design is very similar to one used in a dream sequence of a mermaid from a film I vaguely recall seeing years ago.

    No offense but the one on the left looks like Merbellas' angler fluke with a vagina carved into the middle of it... LMAO.

    Really though, I'm glad he's introducing new fluke shapes.

    Honestly, I'm not sure how I should feel about this fluke. It's way too different of what we are used to. It doesn't look mertailor-ish if that makes sense..

    I know, it sounds silly to say that. I suppose I will have to wait for the swim video (if there will be even one..) to be really convinced.

    I guess I REALLY am a picky fish after all haha

    That is actually my favorite fluke from him. So simple, yet effective.

    I think his new fluke looks ver feathery and angelic.
    Maybe a bit to birdy. I'm sure it will look flowy and pretty in the water though.

    I like the past two flukes posted here And from the pictures shown- you can't see the monofin through these newer flukes! If that's true he's taken steps to improve his product which is

    I like the blue one very much. That pink one looks like an alien to me.

    I hate to be THAT person, but is the blue fluke finished? It looks like it's missing paint on the edges...

    I thought the EXACT same thing! The fluke looks like wings to me... which I do not really like. In my opinion a fluke should evoke the tail of a fish or other sea creature... not a bird.

    Isnt that his H20 fluke? It was based/copied off the tails used in the show H20: Just Add Water.

    I think so too.
    But in the end, a extra fluke shape is always better than fewer ones.

    He actually had an h2o fluke sculpted, this one is a bit more just "inspired" by h2o. Or so it appears. I actually am liking all the new flukes except the orange one with the angler-esque ridges. That one doesn't seem to flow very naturally. But either way I'm glad he's making some new flukes. I love variety in mermaids after all.
