This whale rig consists of an autoswim function with custom controls to allow precise control over each bone. This includes the main body, head, and fins. Also it includes FK controls that can be used for blending and correcting the autoswim if you have troubles getting the look you want. I've found it works best to tweak down the tail chain while occasionally scrubbing to make sure you're getting the right effect. I set the autoswimmer where I thought it looked best, simply set the autoswim control to true. 

There are also multiple controls to swing the tail all the way up or down as well as turn down its strength.

The model has UVs but I haven't created a texture for it, if I get requests I may do so in the future. 

Please be sure to send me any questions or tips you've got.
