She's so beautiful and mysterious.
You made the scene look so cool, soft and flowing. I love how her hair is waving softly around her, just like the seaweed she's hiding in.

I have a soft spot for aquatic creatures and beings. Probably due to living in a city that relies so heavily on maritime activities Sailing the seven seas

I can relate, I spend my summers on the Mediterranean, so my love for the sea is pretty bottomless♥

She frightens me a bit...that intense stare, what is she thinking about?

Selkies are wild creatures, despite being benevolent, so I'm glad the piece conveys a feeling of awe and fear!
I cannot say much about the story yet, but it will be published at the end of summer in Encounters with the Imaginary III! :)

I suppose I am influenced by the old stories of the Sirens and malevolent mermaids;
also this song:

Such beautiful art, I feel like I can almost hear the calm sound of water in my ears as I look at this. I adore all those many shades of green. Wonderfully executed!
