Lake Naiad by minties Lake Naiad by minties
Commissioned by *Merman1234

"A prince of the castle fell in love with one of the handmaidens. The prince many times wanted to tell the handmaiden of his feelings for her and one night he finally did. And at that moment the handmaiden told the prince of her feelings for him as well.

But the vain princess who wanted to marry him became jealous, she wanted to be rid of the handmaiden! So the princess visited an old witch who give her a potion. When the handmaiden bathed in the lake the princess must pour the potion. The witch told the princess that the potion would transform the handmaiden into a lake naiad.

The handmaiden on one hot night decided to bath in the lake and the princess followed the handmaiden and poured the potion into the lake transforming the handmaiden into a lake naiad. If the handmaiden turned naiad attempts to leave the lake then she will die, because she is now the spirit of the lake..."

If the prince truly loved her, he would have found a potion himself that would turn him into a male naiad.
Beautiful picture.

Interesting. I'd love to take this story to another level if possible. And if that's alright with you.  Already had a character of mine ending up saving Alma from Fear.

A sad ending to this story? That's pretty interesting. It sounds like a very interesting idea for a dark novel.

I really admire your colour choices for the night time feel with the landscape and the contrast of the lighting on the Naiad. The detailing in the scales and webbed hands are great, as well as the water droplets. I must add ... the hands .... are really gooood!!! Just in case you were in any doubt. :D
