I’m planning to release a new mertail for Genesis a bit later this year smile

Shoot.  I was working on some designs myself for a mertail for Genesis.  I will, however, bow to the master.

But I’ll still work on some poses…  (Insert big grin.)

but there are many fish in the sea and many types of merpeople tongue wink

I second the request for a good serpent tail (like Creatura Serpenta), I would put that to very good use.  wink

Looking forward to one or more mertails, I would be interested in more than one style… : )

Personally I think there’s room for more than one tail - we all have very different styles smile

great, more tail endings for sure
and leg to tail morphing possible or only possible with geografting new props?

I will look forward to seeing a Genesis mertail. Trying to get the Gen4 ones lined up properly is a pain, and if you try fitting them to Genesis you end up with a tail with feet shapes sticking out hmmm

You’d get that with the Gen4’s too — IIRC you’re supposed to hide the feet and lower legs, there’s a transmap preset for that.

Cath (Mec4D) created a mermaid using Genesis in ZBrush so you could go that way with some either conforming or Geografted extras like fins and other aquatic creature things added on.

I did, but maybe it was because I tried it with the ‘fit to genesis’ setting. I eventually just parented it to the hip and hid the lefs and feet, but the movement isn’t as realistic.

Lionfish?

Yes! That’s the thing! Yes! I would love a mertail like that!

Also, there’s this mythological mer-thing that has both legs curving into tails. Pretty freaky.
