Aretuza Student was drawn by the same artist who drew cards like Dettlaff, Aelirenn, Oneiro and more

the witcher and ciri gwent

Hey guys, some people were wondering who the artists of the new cards are, especially Aretuza Student. She was drawn by Lorenzo Mastroianni, who together with Anna Podedworna gets often mentioned as one of the best artists who set the standard of Gwent's art quality. He is responsible for many many incredibly beloved artworks since the very beginning of Gwent, such as Eredin, Aelirenn, Dettlaff, Eist, Triss Telekinesis and Oneiro, to name only a few (see his artstation portfolio for more). You might also remember him for the article detailling his process of creating artworks.

This, of course, doesn't make most of the criticism regarding Aretuza Student any less valid. I'm just posting this because some theories for the reason behind the cartoony/less fitting artstyle went even as far as accusing CDPR of testing the waters with new, "cheaper" artists, which clearly isn't the case here.

If you are curious, here are the artists of the new NR and NG cards:
