the kelpie by TheSilverBells the kelpie by TheSilverBells
Kelpie. :3

I gave it octopus eyes, short ears, and a longer mouth. The short ears because animals that spend a majority of their time in water typically have short ears. Like seals, otter, hippos, etc…

The pocket watch is in its mouth because Kelpies can also take the form of women… So perhaps they like picking the pockets of their victims? Sorting through their clothes after eating them? They may hoard trinkets such as coins, rings, or glasses. Like how dragons hoard things.

Oh goodness I simply adore this. Also... not sure how to ask this... is it possible I could make her into a character of mine? If not, perfectly understandable! I'll happily leave you alone x3
