Thread: Re-color my Finfolk!

    Re-color my Finfolk!

    Just a fun thing to pass the time while I'm waiting for the tail! Here is my tail template, based after a lionfish. Feel free to add fins, re-color, mess with it! Curious to see everyone's take on my pattern

    If you want to post your designs too, feel free! I love playing with photoshop.

    With all of the inspiration they will be getting from being in Hawaii, your tail is going to be mind blowing. Period.

    Thanks Shimmer! I'm really excited about the tendrils on the back coming off the ankle fins I've been messing with it a bit more since I wasn't crazy about the two full back stripes, and I added a little more lavender and fire red. here's the update: Name:  tail front.jpg

    How do you even go about designing something like this? I can't even draw stick figure!

    Sonnet I look up reference pictures and color palettes, then experiment with color placement and markings until I get what I want. This is design attempt #16 you just have to be persistent
