Elden Ring Fan Spends 75 Hours Creating Stunning Malenia Drawing

Elden Ring has proven to be a huge hit for FromSoftware, quickly becoming one of the studio’s best-selling games and garnering widespread, near-universal critical acclaim. As one might imagine, Elden RingIts incredible popularity has inspired its fans to create all kinds of fan art and other creations in honor of the open world epic. Often times, this fan art honors certain characters and bosses in the game, such as a piece of incredible art recently shared by user OmarvinG94 on Reddit.


OmarvinG94 claims to have spent 75 hours creating Elden Ring fan art honoring the optional boss Malenia, infamous for being one of the most challenging bosses in the entire game. The breathtaking artwork stands out from other fan art because it doesn’t simply contain one form of Malenia. Rather, it shows Malenia as she appears in various stages of the boss fight and elsewhere, plus it’s packed with Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans to see.

Malenia appears several times in the play, with both her first and second stages represented. At the very top of the drawing shows Miquella, a character who doesn’t really appear in Elden Ring appropriate, but whose “egg” players can find when they visit Mohgwyn Palace. Malenia’s title is the ‘Blade of Miquella’, so it makes sense that Miquella would appear in the drawing.

One of the best hidden but most interesting details in the drawing is that it is also the famous Elden Ring Let Me Solo Her player, also called “Jarnished” because they wear a pot on their head. For the uninitiated, Jarnished is a Elden Ring player also known as Klein Tsuboi, who has made it their mission to kill Malenia as many times as possible. Tsuboi has helped others Elden Ring players currently kill Malenia more than 1,000 times and have become a celebrity in the community as a result.

Those who want to see OmarvinG94’s take on Jarnished can see them in the lower right-hand corner of the piece, just below Malenia’s hand. Those who take a closer look at the drawing elsewhere will see other fun Easter eggs and references, all of which add up to make this one of the most impressive pieces of Elden Ring fan art shared by the community so far.

It is possible that Elden Ring fans will soon have some new characters to give them inspiration for their art. There are rumors that FromSoftware is working on a Elden Ring DLC expansion, but official details have not been announced at the time of writing.

Elden Ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
