The Witcher Parchment

Things like this give me goosebumps.

Ukrainian artist Valentin Kolontay brings us this medieval-style illumination of a Geralt of Rivia, professional Witcher, battling a striga.  What elevates this from cool to sheer awesomeness is that it's a true medieval-style illumination.  Mr. Kolontay produced everything that went into the final artwork, including iron gall ink, mineral pigments, egg emulsion, and the parchment itself, in the traditional way.
