Slumbering Naiad by juliedillon Slumbering Naiad by juliedillon
Here is another piece from my project Imagined Realms on kickstarter. :) 

If you would like to purchase prints, giclees, or the Imagined Realms book itself, please visit: www.kickstarter.com/projects/j…  and support the project. :) (Note: Prints will not be available elsewhere online.)

EDIT: Thanks for the DD!! :D :heart:

Also, since people have been asking, she's not trapped in the water cube, don't worry. My idea was that she's doing the mermaid equivalent of sleepwalking, except instead of walking around in her sleep, she subconsciously causes the water around her to float. I would imagine the egrets appreciate this since they have greater access to various small fish now.  I was going to title the piece "Somnambulant Naiad" to reflect the sleepwalking part, but that's kind of a mouthful.

This is what happened to the world after the extinction of humanity. It all turned cubed and the wonderful world of minecraft was created. But this is awesome!

This is so extraordinarily imaginative - I love how you gave the organic elements an almost mechanical, sci fi and modular feel with the cubes... simply amazing!

Damn this is surreal! Awesome work. And your story of her sleepwalking makes it even cooler! 

I also like the design of the mermaid herself, how it's all lake-based.

This is such an epic idea. OwO I don't even know where to begin to describe the awesome.
The color?
The shapes?
The lighting?
The concept of a mermaid sleep-swimming?
Toothless Such awesome.
I'm about to click on your gallery.
