AtoZ 2018 – B is for Borkh Three Jackdaws (Gwent card) by Anna Podedworna


Day two of the April AtoZ Challenge 2018, and I’m off to a ‘hot’ start — here to prove it is Borkh Three Jackdaws – Gwent card by Polish professional artist Anna Podedworna, posting as akreon.

I absolutely adore Anna’s caption to this artwork, which reads:

“Also calls himself Villentretenmerth… he’s not the best at names.”

That just makes me giggle every time I read it!  It’s an amazing dragon, and that’s an awesome backstory, told in just a title and a sentence.  As a concept artist for CD Projekt Red, Anna has created dozens of Gwent illustrations and tons of non-Gwent art, so check out her amazing gallery, and follow her on Instagram, Tumblr, and Art Station.

According to the official game website (with links from the Witcher Wiki):

GWENT is a competitive card game developed by CD PROJEKT RED — creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt … set in the [Witcher] universe created by [Polish author] Andrzej Sapkowski.

In GWENT, gamers clash with friends in fast-paced duels that combine skill-based play with bluffing, and careful deck construction.  … GWENT is [available] on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.


I’m keeping it simple this year with my theme of “Odds and Ends Dragons” — amazing artwork by artists I’ve come across in past searches, but wasn’t able to find a spot for at the time.  Read more at my Theme Post.

All of these AtoZ posts should appear around 9:05 AM CT (-5 GMT) each day Monday through Saturday.  For even more dragons, check out my 2016 and 2017 posts!

Thanks for reading, take care, and stay creative!
