Fingar Character Bio
Lurking just under the waters surface is a fish-man hybrid. This friendly finned fiend creeps up to unsuspecting swimmers and brushed its long tail against their feet and legs.
The next time you feel something rub against your foot in the sea, feel free to tell yourself it’s just a piece of seaweed, but now you know the truth.
This model has had quite a life, having many variations and versions over the years. The model was originally designed as part of a set of models named Fear Folds.
The original model had 2 toys on a single page, named Fin and Gill, Gill being a smaller and happier version of Fin. When I was updating the model to the new FUT standard I felt that Gill was too small and awkward to build and took up too much space on the page so I decided to delete Gill altogether and use the extra space to simplify Fin’s shape.
The model has been through several re-releases and re-designs each time being cleaned up and updated to match my standard of work at the time. The biggest change from the original release is the sign held by the skeleton, which originally had an ugly font and was extremely bland.
The model first saw release through the online magazine IILove.
18/05/2017 – Uploaded the new version of Fingar to the test website. New images look nice and clean, very happy with the result. New template download files not linked yet. (not sure if I should wait until everything is transferred over to FUT.) However a version of the template is visible with the new “context driven preview” image. I’ll come back tomorrow and write a new character profile and some fun behind the scenes info for the designers notes.
