Loving Seals by DarkSilverflame Loving Seals by DarkSilverflame
A painting, not a photo.

I've seen many forms of love out there in nature. Most of them differ greatly from what is usual to humans, but in the end it's all the same.

This is probably my first artwork solely focusing on seals ever. Finding the right colors gave me a hard time, not to mention these scoundrels known as whiskers!
My intention was to show the emotions between the two individuals and I simply love how it turned out :)

Disclaimer: This an accurately painted reproduction of a photo. The original doesn't seem to be online anymore, so I can't link to it. If you have a link, please let me know so I can put it here! Thanks!

If you look at the rock they are on, you can see it easily, because the texture isn't all that good :)
