Hello to all :wave:

I am here with third story from book. I didnt completed this set yet as I miss smaller 1/2 page illustration there. But I already have a frame, head and full page picture. I am out of time schedule now, but happily my editor told me that some writers still didnt gave him their short stories so I still have some extra time .. which is grat!

O.k. this story is from times of hunts for witches. Hero is wise woman of nature connected with pagad god of wood and it's all about her moral battle against fanatical priest.

In borders there are some beasts I found in one old manucript and central is deer god. On open "head" illustration I wanted to show her dance with death and the fact that he had strong knowledge of herbs and magical plants - that's why she hold mandrake.


Full side picture is scene of her spiritual dissucsion with god of woods and her dream where she become part of old eak.


Here is detail of the picture without frame:


There should be another 1/2 page illustration a scene from prison, to show
also the priest.

Hope you enjoy .... :-)

I will also repair some minor mistakes in computer, specialy on deer god's body and some other little things. I will see. :-)

btw ... it's not pen and ink but brush and chinese stick ink :-)

Jana, your illustrations are always so rich in detail and your imagination is wonderful. I did add a butt icon because of the nudity of the witch.

I love the way the woman's body is an extension of the tree and vice versa.
