Note: part of this used to be in one of my Gab Currentlies, 
but I wanted to give these projects their own post.

A quick Pinterest search for custom fins yielded far to many mandalas for my taste, so I thought I’d go more tropical island-themed for Mac and Abby’s fins. I had a lot of fun researching tropical fauna, Tikis and Polynesian textile patterns, though I ended up not using much of the textiles, sadly.

My original plan for Mac’s 2 + 1 setup was to have the Tiki look more like the traditional wood, but I had to scrap that idea. The brown wasn’t standing out enough from the dark blue . I realised too late that I could have gone with orange, instead of brown, but I like how it the white makes the statue look like it’s glowing.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with Abby’s sidebites. I originally had something different in mind, but the side fins didn’t really give me enough space to execute it well. Will shelve that for a future project, maybe? 😛

Will be clearcoating these tomorrow and then I can start on my last commission for the year!
