Music inspired: Red-haired Ghost Lady
Poster paint on pencil sketch, then I added contours using gel-ink pen.
The paint I used have nearly 20 years and still have vibrant colors and there is no problem to use them, just add some water. 

This is an illustration for the song, which I like a lot. 
The song is nearly decade older than me, it was created in the 70ies of the 20th century.
It was released on the debut album of the band Budka Suflera (name means "prompt corner"). 
The singer, Krzysztof Cugowski, has, I think, one of the best male voices in Polish popular music. 
The title is "Jest taki samotny dom" ("There is such an old manor")
Here is a link to youtube:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT_ObQ…

And English translation of the lyric, if someone is curious:
(I took it from the webpage: www.tekstowo.pl/piosenka,budka…)

The rain hit, the night exploded
Empty manor by the side of the road
In the cathedrals of trees, in the visors of mountains
Wagner's tone

Behind the strange stained glass
Chill of empty chambers
Time smashed into an ashy dust
Dead, empty manor

I'm throwing wood in cause fire has gone out
The storm keeps going on
Suddenly an effusion of colours and loads of candles
Someone's playing the violin
Gothic doors open
And creaking they glide aside
And a white lady flows out of them
In a diamond mist

The manor twirled with us
A flame of ginger hair
I'm flying above the mountains, I'm flying with her
She's holding a rose in her hand

Chorus:
And after the night comes the day
And after the storm comes the calm
Suddenly birds wake me up
Banging on the windows


Once more gray, empty house
Where I've had my shelter
And my dearest one, my dearest of all
On the stained glass
Hit the road, I must hit the road again
Sink into the life
Even though the hand is still holding
Slightly withered rose

Enjoy :)

Blood Elf Sorceress
As I mentioned before, I like blood elves of the Earthdawn universe. 
I know that the whole idea of thorns makes no sense, when you think deeper,  but it can be an interesting theme to draw. 
So here she is.
(I cannot decide but most probably she is an elementalist)

Drawn by pencils and markers (flame).

I think that it looks better as an original, not as scan, maybe because of the size - the face is little larger than human face.

Yggdrasil
Of course I am not an expert on the topic, but I like a lot Norse mythology. I read Poetic Edda and found it very interesting, especially the Havamal is great and wise, much of advice given there is still current (I am not sure if it is a right adjective, I mean that we still can benefit from it and relate it to ourselves).

And as I have written already - I love trees.

So, it is not surprising that I decided to draw Yggdrasil, The Tree of the Worlds and the Horse of the Hanged God.  
(sometimes I am wondering if there was an influence of shamanism into the Norse culture, but as I said I am not an expert - if anybody knows something about the possible relations between the symbol of the tree in beliefs of people of Siberia and Vikings, please comment) 

Of course this is not realistic picture. Interestingly the shape of the root system of the majority of the trees is quite different. In fact roots usually do not grow very deeply into the soil and the majority of them are located in the upper 2 m of the soil. The depth at which the roots would grow depend on the properties of the certain soil and the species of a tree. The diameter of root system can be 2-3 times greater than the diameter of the crown. 
See for example:
sheffieldtreemap.files.wordpre…
treefredericksburg.org/wp-cont…
wattsupwiththat.files.wordpres…


I wanted to achieve something in between symbolic representation and a real ash-tree. 

I know that there are a lot of drawings of Yggdrasil, so I waited until I had the idea how to make my drawing different from the others. And finally the idea appeared in my head.
I could make it more regular and decorative but I decided not to as there is no ideal symmetry in nature and I wanted it to be more "organic". 

The design and drawing took me about 14-15 h, but I think that result is worth of efforts. 
The drawing was made using gel ink pens on the pencil sketch.

That were all my old analog photos (I have also some more, but either their quality is not good enough, or I consider them less interesting). I wanted to show not obvious shots, not the most known monuments and buildings, which are often photographed.
One more time I thank you for viewing, commenting and favs.
As I have written before I would like to mix photos with the traditional art, so next I plan to submit some of the second.
But - to be sincere - I have submitted all my old drawings and paintings, so I would need to make some new. I have already finished one, which I am going to submit in the near future.

BeatryczeNowicka's Profile Picture

Beatrycze Nowicka
Poland
Born in the 80ties. Live in Cracow.

I am not a professional painter. Drawing and painting is my hobby. My other hobby is reading (especially fantasy & SF) - I write book reviews and articles on Esensja popculture on-line magazine.

My colleague has asked me, so I decided to extend my profile a little bit and (proudly) confirm that I'm an author of a short story published in the anthology settled in the Witcher universe (the anthology was a result of a contest organized on the 30th anniversary of publication of the first story about Geralt of Rivia).
lubimyczytac.pl/ksiazka/481173…
I do not know if they are going to translate it into English.
I have also written several "own" short stories (I mean with the original worlds and characters), but up to day sending them to publishers and magazines has not been successful (mostly silence, sometimes refusals).

Proffesionally I am a scientist - biochemist.

I like your photos. Sometimes the color saturation and contrast seem (for me) increased too much, but you have your own style and who told that photos needs to be realistic.

You're welcome :)
I also like this system and I was playing it a lot, a very long campaign (over 100 sessions) and some shorter campaigns or single adventures. 
I like the universe and the idea of magic.

But the mechanics definitely is not user friendly, whole this dice combinations... And the fights can be awfully slow, but of course it also depend on the GM and on the practice of players. 

Once we fought with horror which had 40 tentacles. GM threw dices for the initiative, attack and damage points separately for each tentacle. That was the most boring RPG battle I have ever played. But this was not the GM with whom I played this very long campaign of course ;P

OMG, 100 sessions?
Absolutely agree with you, the gamemaster can save (or ruin) everything.
I do not know any roleplaying system which is really user friendly, balanced and optimized. So I choose game by the core-idea, not by game mechanics. And EarthDawn is one of the bests in motifs, species and in-game-history. Especially love the idea of the horrors, the magic system and the conflicts in the elven race. And as for me, it's advantage to have some inconquerable instant-death monsters built in the world. 
Nice to meet a gamer here! :happybounce:

Actually I think 106 or something. I prepared a list.
But finally GM gave up, one of the reason was that he could not remember all the NPCs, important events, intrigues, plot threads, found artifacts, places and so on, he was lost in the universe he animated.

But I have also played in Fading Suns campaign for more than 2 years and we have sessions nearly every week, so I think it could be even longer.  I like Fading Suns universe also - it is very varied, I mean in a character of possible stories, there is place for an aristocrat's intrigues, story about "helping peasants on the remote planet", SF about engineers trying to understand the stargate technology and so on.

I saw that you also have drawings of Shadowrun characters. I played Shadowrun rarely, but is is a nice system. The mix of cyberpunk and fantasy is kind a fresh.
I have always wanted play a team which would be a music band in the Shadowrun universe, but there were no opportunity :(

I loved playing RPG, however after ending study our "bunch of guys" split and year after year it was more difficult to gather to play.
