Welcome to Chapter 3. One day I may figure out titles for these arcs. XD
I also have another Fan Art update. ChellRaeSelkie sent me more MMO recreations of Selkie:
Thank you ChellRae!
Oh man, yesterday was a blast! Saw U2 perform live. They put on an amazing show!

This is both the first official introduction of Todd’s siblings, and the last of the side comics! See you all Thursday when we start the next chapter.
This is the end of the Return to the Orphanage mini-arc. Hope you all had fun getting re-acquainted with Selkie’s various friends, enemies, and in-betweens. There are two more strips left before we start the next long Chapter story though; two reader-requested side character visitations. Before we start the next chapter, we’re gonna see how Jessie the shoe clerk is doing, then Todd’s siblings Antoine and Marta will get an official appearance.
I have also, by request, enabled Bookmarking to the site. Hopefully it will make archive binges easier.
I also have three new pieces of Fan Art to share! First is one from Days to Dawn:
GtaMythMaster43 sent an adult-ified Selkie sprite, including a blank template on which you can draw your own dresses and hairstyles:
And lastly, Miasaki666 sent a newly colored version of a previous fan art:
Thank you for the fan art everyone!
My rule of thumb for Amanda is that she is a jerk and a bully, but she’s also an eight year old kid. When you’re that young, you feel things a lot more intensely than you do as a grown up.

I am happy to announce a new item for your Selkie experience. I have decided to start doing monthly Donation Incentive extra images. If I may direct your attention to the right side of the site, you will see a purple Donation button, and above it a small sample of the Donation Incentive. A donation of any amount will recieve the full-size image. For the time being I will need to mail the images manually, so I will apologize in advance for the lack of immediacy.
I also wish to address a concern that is very important to me: those of you who have ALREADY made a donation, before there was an additional incentive to do so. I have not forgotten your generosity, so those of you who have already made a donation, keep an eye on your inboxes. Over the next day I will scour my Paypal records and performing a one-time retroactive gifting of the new Incentive. I’m not going to tell you NOT to donate again, but it is not necessary to make a second donation to receive the new image.
And even if you are unable to make a donation, I want you all to know that I am thankful to everyone for your readership and continued support. You all make my Mondays and Thursdays AMAZING. Thank you!
Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans, and happy Selkie Update Day to everyone else. If you missed it, I had a holiday-themed sketch posted over the weekend. It involves dangerous acts of derring-do!
I also have a huge Fan Art update to share today. First is some adorable Sims 3 screenshots by Shiori Tsumi:
And not one not twelve, but SEVENTEEN character models with various cute outfits sent by Saphraira:
Thank you both!
Been awhile since I did a Sketch Saturday bonus update. Happy Independance Day to my fellow Americans, and happy weekend to everyone else.
I drew this bonus sketch at work, and on my second break I did a different sketch because I wanted to draw something that wasn’t Selkie related. It was gonna be clockwork mechanical wings, but it became a generic Elf Mage somehow:
I am now back in town from my trip to Florida. We visited my brother’s future in-laws (they’re very nice people who treated us like family the entire time, stuffed us to the gills with food, and gave us mangos from their very own backyard mango tree as gifts to take home. I love mangos as much as Selkie loves fishies. ). I had the last two strips done before I left, but this one was done at the wire. I think this strip may be the latest I have ever missed a deadline… got it posted about half an hour late! I apologize to all the early readers that check right at midnight.
But never fear, I bear good tidings! Firstly, if you have been missing Selkie and Todd during this Orphanage Visitation mini-arc, check in this upcoming Saturday for a 4th of July Sketch Day bonus update!
Second item is… new Fan Art! Firstly from Questionable Panda:
And two screen captures of a Forsaken World version of Selkie courtesy of ChellRaeSelkie:
Thank you both for the artworks!
Everyone have a good weekend, see you on Saturday’s bonus day, and then again on Monday.
I like to think the orphanage staff disabled the game system’s wireless capabilities. On-line gamer chatter is not a thing youngin’s need to hear.
Slightly related! I got curious and looked up XBox Live clips on Youtube. I think this is funny:
