Fine Art: The Beautiful Sketches Behind The Witcher 3's Ending

The Beautiful Sketches Behind The Witcher 3's Ending

I know, we’ve already done a big showcase on the art of The Witcher 3, but these sketches from Marcin Karolewski are so good that they deserve their own feature.

Karolewski works at Juice, a Polish design studio that also just opened an office in Tokyo.

If you haven’t finished The Witcher 3, BE WARNED. Those who have will recognise that these are the original sketches behind the images that make up much of the game’s ending, illustrating different outcomes for the world that came to pass through your actions in the game.

These are all straight-up, pencil sketches. Every single one of them. Amazing work.


Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios.
