Introducing, the Maliciously Vengeful Selkie, and the Curious Myth Hunter!
Both creations for May’s Monthly Collectable for Gaiaonline.com

So the story goes– a myth hunter goes in search for a scorned selkie, bent on vengeance, that lurks near the shore, leading sailors and adventurers to their death, and well….he finds out the myth is true! Some people say he’s doomed >_< but, that could be debatable o.o!

Beautiful brush strokes on the water! I also like the lightning, but I'm both curious and cunfused by your choice of material for the Selkie's cloack. Is it a fur of some sort?

yess this is awesome. i love how the light is placed and how she's kind of pushing him away from it. Water looks really cool as well.

This reminds me so much of the scene between Kida and Milo in 'Atlantis:The Lost Empire'. Beautiful work as always :)

See, this is why you shouldn't steal a selkie's skin.  They get all pissy about it.
