Wow, this is a very different thought of what the Kelpie looks like, this is much darker and hellish then most, good job, it looks amazing!

Hello! I wanted to know if you think kelpies change at all upon entering water, like getting a fish tail, a fish tail and no legs, webbed feet, gills, or similar. I'm trying to find out how they originally were depicted and so far all I have is one old drawing that seems to depict a kelpie on the bottom left- vintageprintable.com/wp-conten…

I don't see kelpie artwork very often. This is creepy, which I think kelpies should be.

When neither here or there, on the way to no place .....why walk when you can ride.

PS: Forget the carrots and sugar cubes. Kelpies prefer fingers and eyeballs. The trick is to make sure there not yours.
