Here is my totem!
Is this done in ink and colored pencil?

I actually say what it's done in, in the description above:

"fineliner, aquarelle, pencil, metallic and iridescent paint"

aquarelle = watercolour pencil.

I'm sorry for not commenting for ages!
I only just began to go through my inbox... there's 3,800 new deviations. I am slightly scared.

Anyway, I have returned to your gallery and once again, I am in awe. The choice of colours in this just feels so right I cannot really put it into words. I have some experience with seals, not much, but enough to know that this is EXACTLY right. Thank you! :)

Great work again! I really like the pinks in the background in this one, they seem to match the seal really well. Lovely picture. =)

I love watching seals swimming up my favourite beach, I think you captured their essence perfectly.

Oh I'd love to see seals more often, I hardly see them here.
