This is beautiful! Though, I'm not quiet sure what is happening in this painting since I don't know much about selkie lore.

A man without arm hair is like a cake without icing...... It's still nice but it's just not the same.

Wow I love this picture story you have going, but this one has to be my favorite. I love how you reflected the light from the lamp on the surfaces, it really makes it pop. I like that you use shadows in all of the pictures, it gives them all an eerie feeling!

It's been some time since I've seen such excellent non-digital inks and colors.
Just brilliant work.
I feel the urge to bury my Wacom and start working my old brushes again. LoL.
Thank you for sharing and stay cool.

Lovely work, she's so pretty and he's so big and handsome! I really really like the greenish cast of the lighting and the shadows. It gives the feeling that the ocean and a storm are just outside.

this one is my favorite I think. So much expression. He looks...worried or maybe a bit guilty almost. But at the same time he looks like he needs this companionship.
