The Witcher art: behind the scenes at CD Projekt Red

Witcher art

CD Projekt Red is responsible for The Witcher art, the jaw-dropping graphic design for a series of fantasy role-playing games brought to life from the novel series The Witcher, by Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher is big news at the moment as fans are eagerly awaiting its TV adaptation, tipped to hit Netflix in 2020, and we can't wait to see how the mind-blowing art is recreated for the small screen.  

The Witcher art is a dark, fantasy themed masterpiece, but CD Projekt Red certainly aren't sticking to what they know for their next project. The Warsaw-based studio are diving into unchartered territory with the sci-fi feel of their new project. Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world role-playing game based on the Cyberpunk 2020 tabletop role playing game system (due for release next year) and it couldn't be more different. While art for The Witcher is dramatic and thundery, the art for Cyberpunk 2077 is intensely futuristic: bright and full of colour.
