Selkies are found in Irish, Scottish, Icelandic and other cultures and folklore, but generally they are seals which take the form of a human when they shed their seal skin - you know the drill, man hides skin of beautiful maiden, forces her to marry him, she finds the skin and returns to the sea. This is my vision of the Queen of the selkies - seals look beautiful and lovely, but they are hunters, and good at what they do. I hope she looks like a skilled and competent huntress rather than a helpless pretty face.
This is an idea that has been rolling around in my head for a while now, but I only really got anything worthwhile down on paper after reading about a contest for super heroines outside the generic skinny big-breasted supermodel. Granted, she isn't really breaking the mold much - hell, I'd love to look like that - but she is not posing for the camera. I'm not entering the comp though, because I don't really draw in superhero comic style - I've tried, and it never works.
I probably will colour it, because some of the shading and lines don't seem to make much sense in greyscale and I think colour would fix that.
