Selkie by Jenny Heidewald

Prompt: the selkie and the mermaid
prompted by: Becca Stareyes, during Sketch Fest #4 (July, 2010)

Finished 8/21-22/ 2015. Finish Fest. 7/2010: I did have a mermaid in there before, but I felt that she would distract from the star of the picture, the selkie. This is one of my favorites this Sketchfest, though it needs work. Usually I don't draw short hair, but it worked for her. Micron pen and Faber-Castell marker on tracing paper. My Facebook art page
