I'm wondering how they achieved that lighting and ... I don't know enough about photography I guess to wonder about how the look was achieved. Distinct but I want to say... washed out? The opposite of vibrant? Grimdark?

The Yennefer photo has some really weird shadows on her compared to the lit background.
Some commentary on the character? (Too many people and too much money to be some kind of mistake). I am mostly ignorant on the Witcher.

I'm ok with Cavill as Geralt, but let's see how the acting and writing shape up.

I just watched Alita last night, and it could have used some of that....honestly the stark lighting was my only real complaint about an otherwise really enjoyable film. It just looked fake AF. Kind of reminded me of TMNT (and not in a good way).

My wife could take better photos. But the photos hop on these are the worst parts. Horrible editing job.

Also, the girls look nothing like the two from the game. The two from the game are genuinely Hotties.

These are just two girls who will get naked.

For 99.9% of dudes, I think they'll be juuuuuuust fine with that.

Now tell them a naked Cavill will be in the same scenes.

Then tell them that the production studio contracted with Marvel's VFX teams, progenitors of Youth Tech, to push the limits of on-screen touch-up in what will become known as Dong Tech.

In the last episode, Geralt must fight his own dick possessed by the spirit of a woman he failed to lay.

... killing time in class.

Just more quality "entertainment" from hollyweird. We're all sure you'll be watching this one handed.

The girls don't look very similar to the ones in the game, but what're ya gonna do, they aren't real girls. Cavil looks fine.

Not much to make an opinion about, other than to say "Well see."

I wanna see who plays Triss Merigold. And I wonder if Zoltan and Dandelion will be regulars?
Will Vessimer return? Will Roach be able to talk (just one side-mission, but it was funny as hell). Will we be treated to a Gwent episode where all Geralt does is play cards?
I hope this is done well.

It's based on the novel series the games were based on, not the games themselves.

Ah, good point. I've not read the novels so that matters even less then.

Nearly every complaint I’ve seen comes from people with zero knowledge of the books. Where’s his second silver sword? In the books Geralt only wears an iron sword on his back while Roach carries the monster killing silver sword. I’m seeing lots of idiots saying that Ciri looks too much like a frail girl lost in the woods. That is literally what is happening and how she is introduced.

I love the pictures and really expected shit. The first trailer will be at SDCC in a couple weeks.

Yeah, a bunch of "fans" being pissed off it's not a 1:1 of something that wasn't a 1:1.

And, I'm surprised to see that I'm the only person who wants to say THANK FUCKING GOD that his necklace isn't a fucking ridiculous 3D wolf head. Imagine trying to sleep with a fucking pointy ass 3D snarling wolf stuck against your throat or in your armpit. No wonder Geralt is such a cranky bitch.

The hilt on the silver sword doesn't look right.
