Male selkie by Mapvee Male selkie by Mapvee
English:
I love selkies. They are the most intriguing, misterious and magnificent mythological creatures to me.
I drew this this morging and I really liked doing it. It's the first time a draw a selkie and I have the impression I could do so much better. But still, I love this drawing and hope you like it too! :)

Español:
Me encantan los selkies. Según mi punto de vista, son las criaturas mitológicas más intrigantes, misteriosas y magníficas.
Dibujé esto por la mañana y me lo pasé muy bien haciéndolo. Es la primera vez que dibujo un selkie y tengo la impresión de que lo podría hacer mejor. Aún así, adoro este dibujo y espero que a vosotros os guste también. :)

Desde cuando quiero rolear un selkie y te amaré si me dices que sí respecto a usar tu imagen como avatar, te amaré más de lo que ya te estoy amando en este momento (Es la única imagen decente que he encontrado por la red~)

Selkie lovers, please check out The Lure of Shapinsay coming out this Christmas on Amazon. It's a dangerous romance between a feisty Scottish woman and a selkie. You may be interested in the cover art on Goodreads.

Some of the folks over at TvTropes were thinking that this image might be really good as a page image for the Selkies and Wereseals page. Would you grant your permission for it to be used?

I love selkies too! I'm so happy I could find a picture of a male selkie. I personally think there would be males.
The mythology of their race is simply wonderful.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this drawing! Is there any way to buy it or buy a copy? Please let me know! I have been working with seals and sea lions my whole career and I adore the silkie legend! Amazing! Thank you!

Wow, are you serious? :-D I can't believe it with this drawing being so old and all...
But thanks! I'd gradly send you a copy but I' afraid I don't even have the drawing here in Germany cause I only to college here but come from Spain. In summer I'll go home so if you're still interested by then I can send you a copy... Wow xD Surreal
I envy you for your work with sea lions and seals. They're such beautiful, captivating and fascinating animals...
If you want, contact me in, like, july/august again. Sorry!
And thank you very much!

Thanks so much!! ^^ I appreciate your comment a lot!
Yeah, it's a shame you can't find much stuff about selkies. They are the coolest mythical creatures ever... But, if you don't dislike the sickly sweet romance novel type, there's one called "Seven Tears Into the Sea", by Terri Farley, which is about the love between a human girl and a selkie (Maybe you already know about it). It's not what I'd call great literature, but if you like the topic, it may be enjoyable ^^
Thank you again :hug:
