Sea Lion Dream (Lost Selkie)

Sea Lion Dream - Final

Continuing with my Dream concept (Armadillo Dream), this month's piece is about a selkie that lost her seal skin and can't get back to the sea. The giga-monstrous crab? The creature came to me right before I fell asleep - we call him Crabicus.

There's a little of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu in Crabicus
