Here is the story behind this picture~
A handmaiden and a prince fell in love with each other. A jealous princess from another kingdom wanting the prince for herself, decided to get rid of the handmaiden. She went to see a witch and traded a hefty sum of money for a magic potion. Following the witch's instructions, the princess tailed the handmaiden on a hot day she went for a dip in a lake and poured the potion into the water, transforming her rival into a water elemental! And thus the handmaiden became the spirit of the lake as she was no longer able to leave it, any attempt to do so would result in her death...
The original request was for a picture of the transformed handmaiden looking stunned. I had free hand on the design so I decided to put the emphasis on the fact that her body is water-based and thought about adding a fish leaping through her body as well as part of her hair turning into water to add some dynamism to the picture (I guess the poor girl is literally liquefying from the shock XD).
