Another week and yet another incredible The Witcher 3 fan art showcasing the powerful Geralt and Ciri.
As we stumble onto another Monday with heavy hearts from the chaos that’s happening across the United States, it almost feels wrong to write about video games right now with so much sadness and anger happening. But if there’s anything that could possibly bring a little distraction into people’s lives right now, it’s some Witcher 3 fan art. As any Witcher fan will know, the game is incredible – there are no other words to describe it, and to back that theory up, last week we heard that The Witcher franchise has now surpassed 50 million copies sold all together since its debut in 2007. In celebration of this, we have some amazing Geralt and Ciri fan art to show off.
Leo Huang whose an artist and indie game developer has crafted a wonderful illustration of the mighty lone wolf Geralt of Rivia and adopted daughter, bound to his destiny by the Law of Surprise, Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, better known as Princess Ciri. What’s most impressive about this particular piece of art by Leo is the immense attention to detail – just check out that cloak of Geralt’s! It almost looks like it is part of his long famous white hair but as you can see, its fastened at the front of his chest by some sort of buckle. The long, wavy and surreal looking shawl coats a sitting Ciri holding a sword. Geralt’s chainmail almost pops out of the picture due to the fantastic detailed Leo has interwoven throughout his art and the electric blue background makes for a dynamic setting for this power couple.
Leo truly is an amazing artist who uses the boldest colors and the most interesting subjects to create their works of art. I’d recommend checking them all out right here and if something catches your eye (which it will), you can even purchase it right here.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt celebrated its 5-year anniversary a few weeks ago so, naturally, I took to my keyboard to type out why I still love it so much to this very day. If you have a few minutes, you can check that out right here. For all things monsters and mythology from The Witcher Netflix show, take a look at this guide that goes into great detail about the lore of the monsters that Geralt encounters. For something to look forward to while we await the second season, Netflix announced a few of the new faces that will be joining the cast of The Witcher. The seven new cast members to join the series is Yasen Atour as Coen, Agnes Bjorn as Vereena, Paul Bullion as Lambert, Kristofer Hivju as Nivellen, Thue Ersted Rasmussen as Eskel, Aisha Fabienne Ross as Lydia and Mecia Simson as Francesca. For those of you who love Killing Eve, you’ll notice a familiar face in the next season. Kim Bodnia, who plays the role of Konstantin in the spy-action thriller, will play Geralt’s father figure and the oldest Witcher on the continent, Vesemir.
If Vesemir happens to be your favorite character, you’re in luck as Netflix is giving the most experienced Witcher his own animated show. Though The Witcher is well known from CD Projekt RED’s video game trilogy, the Netflix series is based on the eight-book saga of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. There is a wealth of material within Sapkowski’s novels and short stories, but Nightmare of the Wolf will not adapt any of them. Instead, Netflix is looking to tell an entirely new story about the beloved character who will be introduced in the show’s upcoming second season.
