Elden Ring fan makes stunning Radahn Boss Fight painting

There’s a ton of amazing Elden Ring fanart available online, but one artist takes things a step further with an epic portrait of Starscourge Radahn.

The Soulsborne community is nothing if not dedicated, and Elden ring unleashed new creative efforts from fans like no entry in FromSoftware’s catalog has done before. From stunning pixel art renderings of some of the title’s best boss encounters to fan art from the folkloric player known as Let Me Solo Her, there’s already an awe-inspiring amount of player-made content in celebration of the game. One Twitter user, however, catches everyone’s attention thanks to an excellent portrait that depicts the epic battle against Starscourge Radahn.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Attributed to online artist Al Jerek, this unique artwork shows General Radahn towering over the Radahn Festival party from the top of his mount Leonard, the player character and his bevy of AI summons in the foreground preparing for a of the greatest fights in the whole Elden ring. While Radahn is far from the game’s final boss — and he’s technically not even a must-have encounter — he’s arguably far more memorable than late-game villains like Fire Giant, Godfrey, or Radagon.

Part of the reason for this may stem from the very atypical approach FromSoftware took in developing the encounter. In previous games like dark souls and Blood, bosses were to be fought alone, although it was possible in most cases to summon NPCs or other players. However, many boss fights in Elden ring it seems they weren’t designed with a single player in mind due to the ubiquity of the game’s many powerful Spirit Ash summons. This is particularly prevalent during the Starscourge Radahn fight, as summoning allies is a core mechanic and some have compared it to an MMO raid boss.


However, Radahn wasn’t the only boss to capture Al Jerek’s imagination; the artist created several Elden ringportraits related to fan-favorite NPCs like Ranni the Witch and other epic bosses like Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy. They also created a piece depicting the tremendous battle between Let Me Solo Her and Malenia, Blade of Miquella, further adding to the legendary player’s legacy.

There’s so much good generated by fans Elden ring content available at the moment that can be difficult to follow. For example, YouTuber Shintendo is taking the opposite approach to Al Jerek’s detailed artwork, opting to recreate Elden ring in the style of an original Game Boy game. Given the game’s incredible scope, this seems like an outrageously daunting task, but it works as an excellent homage to the action-adventure gaming roots.


Elden ring is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
