Realistic artwork shows what Geralt could look like in next-gen Witcher game
Artist creates hyper-realistic imagination of The Witcher’s Geralt, showing what he could look like in next-gen entry
Whether he’s engaging in the delicate dance of international politics, solving mysteries like a medieval Batman, or just at work slaying monsters the old-fashioned way, Geralt de The witcher captures the hearts and minds of readers, TV show fans and gamers. With a strong hold over so many forms of media, it is almost a given that the franchise of The witcher and its main character will continue to have a place in popular culture, including the next generation of video games.
As graphics fidelity continues to improve with each successive generation of video games, one can’t help but wonder what the White Wolf of The witcher Looks like. One artist put his enormous talents to the test, delivering a Geralt so realistic that he looks like he can jump straight off the page.
A 3D artist by the name of Massimiliano Bianchini has shared the fruits of their labor on what a next-gen Geralt might look like, and Blaviken’s butcher makes an intimidating figure. The artist came up with two versions: one with Geralt under a hood and one with his face in plain sight, each showing the weathered and experienced Witcher that audiences are familiar with with a strange sense of realism.
While Geralt isn’t very often portrayed with a hood, the look fits him well, and that sense of mystique does nothing to undermine the stoicism Geralt is known for. The lifelike details of both versions breathe a lot of life into them, from the patchy lint on Geralt’s hood fabric to dirt and grime on his skin, this version is a bit rougher around the edges than Henry Cavill’s. more chiseled interpretation of the witcher.
Perhaps the most striking detail in both versions is Geralt’s eyes, both their color and intensity. Whether under the darkness of the hood or in plain light, the glowing golden yellow hue of the witcher’s eyes immediately distracts attention from Geralt’s much darker set. Equally eye-catching is the expression the artist expertly portrays in the focused gaze Geralt has as he looks to the future. It’s no secret that Geralt has seen a lot more than the others in his world, and before his job is finally done, Geralt will likely see a lot more wonders. Whatever form Geralt takes in subsequent generations of pop culture, it’s clear that his pragmatic and focused determination will continue to resonate with audiences, pushing them forward for many years to come.
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is now available for PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
