Try curving forwards without painting the dorsal fin on the tail and see how that works.

Not picturing what you're trying to say here, sorry man!

The so-called "dorsal fin" is the extension of the tailfin outwards, found on the 737-300 and later.

Presently, the dorsal fin has been painted blue. Thus, a blue extension is seen.

Here, the dorsal fin has been left white. As a result, only the main part of the tailfin is painted.

 

Try changing your livery such that the tail leaves the dorsal fin (mostly) white, with an adapted curve.

Gave that a go, and felt it was just a bit too geometric for this livery... good suggestion though!

How about doing a bottom of tail curve like Virgin Atlantic?

Looks better to the rear imo. Option one looks too heavy and dated to my eyes.

I think I’m gonna use both. I had the original cheat line livery, the forward one, and the rear facing swoop can be the latest livery

I like the curve to the rear more imo.

Rule of thumb: the more you give the fuselage the illusion that it is longer, the better.

 

So bottom one.
