Daffodilendria, the ocean maiden who wore the sun's rays

I love daffodils, and they are often the color yellow, so I based her name off of these flowers. Since I originally used visual reference for my other mermaid piece, I decided to stay with the pattern and use it for this one too. I couldn't resist referencing the lovely miss-mosh. I hope you like it!

Lovely would be an understatement. Plenty of nice blue and green fins, nice view of breasts and even tail, cool perspective with her on the rock, and a planet in the distance because why not.

I love this masterpiece! It is insanely well done. It almost looks like a 3D rendered design; love the water, love this fin hair, the butterfly, the moon backdrop, the concept is out of this world.

I've always been a huge fan of yours and this is probably one of my favourite pictures of ALL time, not just by you, but by anyone! It's utterly stunning.
Usually not very taken with digital art, but this piece of yours somehow makes be forget that it's digital and more like a visually stimulating portal or view into another world/plane. Almost compels me to reach in and want to touch her fin tails.. Great work.
