This was something of an experiment with the kind of hippocampus I usually stay away from -- the classical looking finned sort. My philosophy has generally been to keep it mammalian, so my hippocampi have always had dolphin tails. I thought I shouldn't keep limiting myself that way.
I don't think I'll be doing anything to finish this. I'm happy with the quality of the sketchiness of it.
