They need to seen more in fiction because if fall in love with a human they don't have a problem reproducing like mermaids

HELLO! I love this picture, and lately I've been drawing selfies myself (you inspiring, lady) so I was wondering because I might need permission to do this, may I post a picture of my version of a changeling inspired by this one?

That's the one thing that always interested me about the Selkie. They can easily go from seal to human, just like a person taking off their shirt LD

Ah, I love this legend. Irish and Scottish, right? I have so much Irish in my blood that it's practically green. :D The other day, I dug up my old childhood storybook, and I found a story about Selkies. Get this: THE SELKIE IN THE STORY HAD THE SAME NAME AS ME! It was spelled differently, though.

And this picture is AMAZING!!!I love the look on her face, her freckles, and the cute little bow in her hair.

very lovely as always! um i was wondering, may i have your permission to borrow this style for a mermaid im doing for a commission? i cant seem to get the other poses ive tried down... and as always, ill be crediting you for original pose and ill be making it kinda my own flair as usual when i base things off your style. Plus my friend wants me to use a small canvas so that i cant really add as many details as i originally wanted. if you notice, i add all kinds of details randomly in my work. and i think for this mermaid painting im doing, your style would be best. plus i adore your work. and shes familiar with your work since i have your selkies on my arm.

According to the legends, selkies are seals and can become humans by shedding their "skin." They must keep the skin hidden until they wish to return to the sea and rewear it to change back.
