Sleek Oula by StressedJenny Sleek Oula by StressedJenny
I thought the name Oula suited her ^__^

I was bought a beautiful set of pencils for helping someone out with their work. It was incredibly kind of them and this is the first thing I drew.

She's a bit too long for my liking but I was really pleased with her face.

I really do like her overall look. Though, even with those cute eyes and small smile, she looks like one of those mermaid like creatures who possess big sharp teeth.

They remind me of mermaids, only... less obvious-looking, and very sweet. Great job! :dance:

This came out looking fantastic! I like the name Oula, too. :) It kind of reminds me of the selkie Nuala in The Secret of Roan Innish.

The form in this is gorgeous :) And I love her eyes, they are so innocent and yet the nails look scary, like she could give you a nasty scratch if she wanted too :)

I love the expression. And the hair. (wish i could get my hair to do that)

She's a cutey! The only thing i would have done different was maybe add a little something to the tail, to pizzaz it up a bit. I don't know what though. lol.

in designing a ship's hull, the longer it is, the more efficient it is. so, i don't think she's too long. but that's just me- i think she's proportioned well. that's a good smile on her face.

happy for your new pencils!

Love all your work but these Selkies are just great!

all the Selkies I've seen up to now from other artists haven't managed to capture their human aspect yet IMO - your's do it perfectly.

Love Oula, can't wait to see more of her.

gorgeous, the white really lends itself to the tinted paper. will you do more in pencils, this one is so pretty! :)
She does seem long for a selkie, but some seals are that way aren't they; sort of long and slinky, rather than the cute dumpy ones :)
