Thread: Show us your tail designs!

  1. #1

    Show us your tail designs!

    Anyway, there is a thread for actual tails...so why isn't there one for tail designs? I love to look at everyone else's tail designs, so it seems logical to have an actual thread to look through! Anyway, I still haven't figured Mernetwork out (blah!) and haven't figured out how to get my pictures to show up directly in the post. My photobucket album, though, is here.

    This kind of "died" didn't it? Hehe. :P

    Personally, I like these two of mine. Does anyone else know of any other tails similar to these at all? I ask because I really don't know how it would look as a tail, and I'm super curious.

    Oh I love those designs! Really pretty Do you have any tails you plan on ordering in the future based off of those? And I would post my latest design... but it's super special and wouldn't want anyone taking it before I actually have it

    Hehe, I totally understand! That one I posted is pretty much the only one I've worked on for weeks that I've really, genuinely liked. Pink is my favorite color, but I want it to kind of be realistic and blend into the ocean well...I'm still not sure. Right now, my family has zero money (who really does right now? =\) so my main dream is to save up for a Merbellas by the time I'm in college. I'd like to probably try a Fish-Butt before then, though.

    Ooh! I saw yours on a different thread. I do really, really like the way you have used the pink and the stripes have a...fierce side to it? Haha.

    Wow, how do you guys get the flukes so symmetric? xD All of you! I can't get mine to be symmetric at all and when I use my Mira (a drawing thingy for making things symmetric) it just comes out looking really funky.

    I draw out one side, put another piece of paper on top of the sketch, scribble all over the area of the sketch hard, take off the paper, line it up with the existing side and trace the faint original sketch. The real trick is lining it up before you trace it.

    I just eyeball it usually. (It helps to lean back from the drawings and twist your head to the side a bit to see the drawing in a new way.)

    I used paint to color this in and I'm not very good at using a mouse to color. But anyways you get the idea.
