The Witcher: Elder Blood by GabrielGajdos The Witcher: Elder Blood by GabrielGajdos
Hey guys, I wanted to make Witcher fan art for quite some time and I am glad I finally did. Wild Hunt is one of my favourite games and The Witcher books are THE best thing I ever read and I am so looking forward to what Netflix will do with it!

:omg: :omg:! I didn't know the material was picked up by netflix. I always dreamed of this while reading the books, I have to go through them once more for sure before the show is coming. :D 
Your work is spectacular. Although inspired by the books, I can see the witcher 3 flair in the colors and the landscape, but your work can keep up with the game easily.

I was trying some new techniques and a bit of mattepainting, I am happy you like it, it means a lot! :)

The Witcher series is planned for 2020, so you still have some time :D I also wanted to make this to remind people that it will be based on books. It bugs me when I am reading comments all over the internet and people think it will be based on games... they will be disappointed. Wild Hunt was amazing game, but when it comes to keeping true to source material, there are few things that are really off.

If they retell the story of the books, then even better. :)
I did enjoy the story of the games, though, especially of part 2, as it shed light on the policital aspects of the world, which play a huge part in the books. I don't remember part 3 much now, I must admit. I believe they could have given Ciri a bit more depth, but it was still enjoyable.
Anyway, it's good to hear that they will take their time with the production of the show. I'd assume that it would be an ongoing thing like GoT if the first season is successful? That would be awesome.

agreed :) personally I found the political parts boring, but they add complexity and are one of the reasons the Witcher world is so well written. Well the main story wasnt bad, but they made Eredin king of the Wild hunt. Considering Wild hunt is depicted as something between ghosts/zombies I just thought its bullshit. Also they gave Ciri superhero like powers, which of course she has, but teleporting dozens time mid battle, freezing time and sky beaming was a bit far-fetched for me.

I heard they want to wait how people will react to first season, and if the reactions will be good they will provide a Game of Thrones-like budget :) But its still so far away, well just have to wait

Perhaps I found those parts boring too back then (it's been so long since I read the books so I barely remember), but I feel like those political aspects really added to the depth of the story and the credibity/complexity of the world. It makes the fantasy setting less generic. And that's also how I felt comparing the stories of the first and the second game, although I did like them both a lot.
I was always rooting for Ciri to show off her superhuman powers in the books (the ice skating scene :love:), so I didn't mind her being really powerful in the game. 

Anyway, congrats on your well-deserved DD man!

Exactly, while reading a books I felt like this is a medieval world with fantasy elements, not really a fantasy world.
