Selkie pose. by StressedJenny Selkie pose. by StressedJenny
A biro (ball point pen) drawing of a Selkie I did the other day. I'm sure I've drawn this pose 100 time but it was fun. I havn't drawn in biro for ages and this was very relaxing to do ^__^

Lovely artwork! It so happens that I was just wondering what a selkie-mermaid might look like. I see you added some sort of whiskers to her head. I'm guessing that's a part of seal anatomy. The patterns on her skin were a nice touch as well. Kudos to you! :clap:

Beautiful! I also love drawing with biro, it makes me more focused  and relaxed, because you can't rub out biro mistakes :D It helps me.

all of your artwork is absolutely beautiful! I just love the expression on her face in this one, it looks so soft and innocent. You get the expressions and colours spot-on in all of your drawings, and you draw humans and animals with an extremely high level of skill - I'm guessing you must've been to life-drawing a fair few times!
(p.s I was pleasantly surprised to see you live in my neck of the woods too - I live in Newport!)

I love how you draw selkies. I'm currently writing a novel series about them; my main character is named Jade Grey and she's like half-selkie...

I adore her expression! And her hair is absolutely fantastic, so thick and it makes the pose seem... Perfect. She seems so sweet and innocent. I also love the colors, they way they vary, but all fit together amazingly well. Her tail is really good, very "Selkie". The body art on her is fantastic! I simply love... Well, everything. You never disappoint!
