This is amazing! This is one of the best pieces of art I have ever seen on dA, and anywhere, for that matter. This is fantastic, and if I had the money, I'd buy this and hang it on my wall. Absolutely smashing!

your style reminds me of a mix between two of my favorite artists... Caravaggio (for your contrast and shadows) and Jacques-Louis David (for your linear quality!

Where did you go to study in the "traditional-classical" styles???

Great stuff. Only one question. Why and how do you work with oil and acrylic paint on the same peace of wood? :)

Amazing! I love the selkie myth, too.
This gives me a serious pre-raphaelite vibe. For some reason I was reminded of this painting: [link]
