More Selkie than joo by StressedJenny More Selkie than joo by StressedJenny
This branched from my last deviation.

So basically, the whole purpose of a being a Selkie is the ability to remove your seal skin and become a girl, and then put it back on to become a seal again.

So a girl in a seal costume > my version of a Selkie.


Ha! I don't care. When I think of Selkie, I think seal person, and so what if I choose to personify them a bit more obviously. ^__^

It is up to you as an artist, that is what art is about, putting your rendition on things and showing how you view things. Personally there is nothing set in stone of mythology that a selkie in its selkie form did not have human appearnces (sorry big mythology fan). If you really want to get into it a big thing at the moment is the Thor movie and comics. In the movie Loki is Thors brother, in mythology they are not, however Marvle took it into their own hands and made something based loosely around mythology.

Hehe sorry about that, I strongly believe that an artist should make their own stamp and that other people weather they like it or not should just enjoy the art before them rather than becoming mythology belting morons :) I think you concept of Selkies is how I would imagen them, also you have a beautiful style.

Silver lining; She sort of explains the "Mammalian-Mermaid"Therory.

Yeah, I like your version better. Just imagine if a Centaur wasn't actually a half human/half horse thing. Imagine if Centaurs were humans in a magical horse disguise that they could slip in and out of and be two different beings instead of one combined thing. Or if a Naga wasn't a half human/have snake creature, but instead, it was a human in a giant magical snake skin that could be slipped on and off. Where's the fun in that? That's right, there is no fun to be found. So suck it. Hybrid creatures are way more fun.

I think it's useful to remind people that selkies aren't real and you can envision them however you damn well please. At least you're not applying body glitter, right?

Who says they're not real? Have you ever seen one? I haven't, but we shouldn't assume things lol.

No, I haven't seen one, and if I had, claiming that they don't exist would not speak well to my clarity of thought.

I'm not sure what you're claiming, here. That I should not assume that a person who becomes a seal by wearing a magical seal cloak is not, in fact, an actual thing that really exists? That this is an assumption that cannot be safely made?
