The Witcher Fan Art Shows Geralt at Peak Dad Energy
An illustrator on Twitter shared a series of images interpreting Geralt from The Witcher in the most dadly-ways possible.
With the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2015, one of the most heartening elements of its rugged main character, Geralt of Rivia, was the fact that Geralt showed a softer, more endearing side of his personality with Ciri. By taking on a more fatherly role in his relationship with Ciri, The Witcher 3 made Geralt an even deeper and more relatable character throughout CD Projekt Red’s epic open-world RPG. Thankfully, a series of fan art creations are tapping into the energy of Dad Geralt in a humorous way that you can see for yourself.
Graphic designer and illustrator Neetols (Twitter) shared a series of illustrations and fan art depicting everyone’s favorite Witcher as the dad we all imagine him to be, complete with taking Ciri to soccer practice, changing diapers, reading bedtime stories, and more. You can check out the illustrations below:

With The Witcher 3 having celebrated its five year anniversary this past May, the creativity and passion that fans have had for the series has never been brighter. In the years since its release there have been tons of great fan creations and art, ranging from a comic book-style illustration of Geralt to a mockup of a Witcher-themed Xbox Series X console. Coming off the debut of Netflix’s well-received TV series and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, fans of The Witcher will surely have a lot to look forward to from the franchise in the future; at the very least, that will include more impressive fan creations.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
