I've wanted to do this illustration of a selkie for ages. So since my thesis oral is in like, two days I thought "what a perfect opportunity to spend hours drawing!".
Selkies are from celtic fairylore, they are beautiful women (or men) who wear the skins of seals. there are stories where a man would steal a selkies' skin and then she would be bound to him, so that's sort of the premise of this piece. I think I might ink it at some point, or even color it.
Drawing pencil on paper. I really need a better scanner, mine makes all my pics woogly.
