Selkie Preening by StressedJenny Selkie Preening by StressedJenny
I swear I grew an extra pair of ovaries as I was drawing this. This is starting to look like My Little Pony cuteness territory here, and I'm not liking it XD
Though it was fun drawing different Selkie ages ^__^

Also *InvaderDawn Should spot her Edlyn in here too.

Urgh, this makes me want to heave a little...

Aw that'd adorable, I love how you gave them all the same... whisker eyebrows, thats a cool idea without making them cat-like.

PFFTITSALLCUTEANDSTUFF I like your take on selkies. It's pretty cool. I also like how you can draw nudity so subtly, where it's just a part of the picture and not all up in your face.

I love that that when they are pups they look more seal like, and gradually look more human up top as they age! Also, I love their whiskery eyebrows! Wonderful! <3

I like the way you draw selkies. It's a lot more interesting than just a human or seal form.

You're welcome, I like it when multiple characters from different people are put in one thing together and the one that looks and/or acts different is most of the time my favorite because different is good

I really like the interpretation of them as menfolk rather than shapeshifter.
Also I keep imagining them taking in scottish accents.

Lol the cuteness factor may be way up there, but I love how you incorporated the seal aspect into their tails, skin tones, and eyelashes/eyebrows. (especially the last one)

Hey, if you grew more ovaries, you could sell them on the black market :la:

So adorable! I love all of your selkies, and looking at them is kind of inspiring. Would you be offended if I attempted to create one of my own based on your depictions of them? Let me know!

Cheers, and can't wait for the next installment :)
