Moonrise In Spring by MichelleHoefener Moonrise In Spring by MichelleHoefener
Daffodilendria, the ocean maiden who wore the sun's rays

This piece has been a long time in the making, and I'm very happy to finally call her complete! This is Daffodilendria, a kind of sister painting to my Calypso painting:


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!

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.

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.
