"Not a subject to control, you call upon a higer power
For help and inspiration
(...) Leaning over your fourtieth masterpiece
You must have loved the colour of these violins..."

The Witches of Eileanan by CelticBotan
The Witches of Eileanan
"I, high king, sovereign and servant
Holder of divine, regality bestowed
(...) My kingship, the song of the gods
Thou shalt know me by my fruits
The abundance in which we grew
The signs and wonders at our feet
Which the flight of the crows revealed"
("KING", by Eluveitie)

"Bring to me all of my arrows
Bring to me my crossbow too
I fear we might need them both
Before the night is through"
("WORLD OF STONE", by Blackmore's Night)

"Enough of this skin, it's time to shed it
Underneath, you are still a snake
And devours your own tail to restart

Transmutation through fire,
No caresses, chiseling the apprentice
What is left is only the scar
And the certainty that the dawn is coming,
Soon the dawn will be coming"
("SERPENTE" ['Snake'], by Pitty)


Fanart of the book series "Witches of Eileanan" by Kate Forsyth, that my girlfriend introduced me to recently - and jesus on a flying turtle, guys. If you never read it, make yourselves a huge favour and read this series, it is one of thw best I've ever read. The characters are SO AMAZING, and the worldbuilding is to die for Ç_Ç

It is high fantasy, with witches, rituals, wars, dragons on treasures, but with so many cool things. The story makes the characters questions themselves all the time, and us, the readers, too. For things and people aren't just good nor bad, they are good people who do bad things and bad people who do good things or simply are bad for they didn't know better. It is really fascinating. Not to mention all the character development throughout the series, amazing female characters of all types and kinds you can imagine, even the history of Eileanan is badass. Just. Do it, people. You won't regret Ç___Ç

A bit about the art:
These are, respectively, Lachlan the Winged, Iseult of the Snows and Isabeau the Red (who is the main character, but the story covers a lot of the other characters too). I chose their flowers on their crowns to match their personalities and background stories, according to the language of the flowers: Lachlan has magnolia ("Nobility") and anemone ("Forsaken"); Iseult has nasturitium ("Conquest; Victory in Battle"), viscaria ("Will You Dance with Me?") and gladioulous ("I'm Really Sincere; Flower of the Gladiators"); and Isabeau has coreopsis ("Always Cheerful"), lavender rose ("Enchantment"), yellow poppy ("Wealth; Success"), violet ("Watchfulness; Faithfulness; I'll Always Be True").

And about the character's appearences, I will try not to give much spoilers, but that's how I imagined them; Isabeau and Iseult with red hair and freackles and blue eyes as it is described a lot in the books - but with Asian / indigenous-like features because of their father and their heritage from his side, I totally imagine him and his people as being sort of a mix of Inuit/Native North-American (they are described as having dark skin and white hair and their culture is very Inuit/Native American-like). And Lachlan, sort of Indian-looking, they describe him and his family as being dark skinned with curly black hair~

Enjoy! =D

The Princess Without Wings by CelticBotan
The Princess Without Wings


"Don't tell me to not wait for you,
To not get desperate,
To not ask anything else
Now that you showed me life in such a real way.

Now I bring in my veins the caresses and the punishments
Which I feel in each and every moment

Bigger than the whole space,
Than the loneliness,
Stronger than the strongest of embraces,
More than light..."
("MAS QUE LA CLARIDAD", by Adriana Mezzadri)

The Sirens by CelticBotan
The Sirens
"Sisters of the earth
We can hear your revelation
Come into all our reveries
We sing you melodies
We will shine
Sisters of the earth!"

("SISTERS OF THE EARTH", by The Sirens)

"I dream too much 
And spend my days
Like a sailor lost at sea
And you were like a mermaid
In that Danish fairytale
I guess the best thing that I could do
Is to sail..."
("SUNKEN SOLDIERS BALL", by Anneke van Giersbergen)


Fantasy portrait of the musical project The Sirens, composed by Anneke van Giersbergen (middle), Kari Rueslatten (Left) and Liv Kristine! Like the previous art I did, of Sharon as a dragon queen, I couldn't resist drawing these amazing singers as.. sirens, haha. I am practically illustrating my own RPG world here :XD: (specially when the came to São Paulo like 3 weeks ago... and I couldn't attend because of work Ç___Ç I hope I will be able to catch them next time! :heart:)

Enjoy! :wave:
