Selkie Midnight Moonlight by StressedJenny Selkie Midnight Moonlight by StressedJenny
She's making a wish of some sorts under the moonlight when the moon jellyfish are abundant. Perfect conditions for wishing ^__^

Maybe she wants to get some legs and run off with a prince... wait.

Biro doodle and painted in 40 mins, yay!

Or for some prince to get a tail and swim off with her. That would be an interesting twist.

Hey, I love your selkies <3 seals are a tragically under appreciated animal ; 3 ;

Anyhoo, I run a club, but I'm still fuzzy on the etiquette for submitting someone else's artwork to the club gallery, so I was just letting you know additionally in a comment that we'd love to have your Selkies in our #The-Sirens-Song-Club

Awesome, but... not really a selkie, to my knowledge.

From everything I know about Selkies, they have human form, or they have seal form. Unless they've halfway taken off their skin, they wouldn't have an inbetween form.

Heh! :)

Sorta a mer-seal with the Selkie name, then... *Can deal with it* :P

I'm all for people changing things up the way they want. People should make their own original twists - the moreso if they can explain how their "real version!" eventually became legend. Just so long as they also bother to remember the real myths their basing it on. :P (Changing things is fun, but one shouldn't be ignorant of the original. :) )

Of course, it is always essential to do your research when handling something like this and to make it clear what the real mythology represents. They are essentially mer seals, but then I couldn't imagine calling them anything else other than Selkies. It suited them so much. ^_^

They look wonderful. :)

*Completely reconstructed everything mer in order to create his own character, anyway, so...* (Well, more like i detailed... completely recreated the halfling-mermaid idea... gave them social structure and economy... My muse can be awesome. :) )
