10 The Best Girl With IAHFY
Quite a number of fans would find it hard to argue with the title of Iah_fy's Yennefer fanart calling her "best girl". One of the endings of you can get with Yennefer cromes from playing the Blood and Wine expansion, where you can have Geralt retire with her at his estate in Corvo.
Iah_fly's fanart depicts an idyllic moment that Geralt is sure to have with the lovely sorceress at his side. There's a second version of this very piece of fanart on Iah_fy's twitter though it (and several of her other fan works) or a little on the mature side.

8 Brought To Life With Hugo Gomez
Fanart doesn't just pertain to traditional 2D art on paper or on the computer, as shown with Hugo Gomez's 3D Yennefer Fanart. The sculptor decided to use his craft to express how much of a fan of Yennefer he is, by making an actual model of the powerful sorceress.
He got it 3D printed and did the paint job himself, sparing no detail into making this 3D fanart a real work of art. There are little details everywhere from the pattern in her scarf and tights, to the curls in her hair.
7 Feel The Magic With Julijana Mijailovic
Probably the best relationship in the Witcher games is the family bond Yennefer and Geralt share with Ciri. The two of them had developed a deep and parental bond with her as a child, each in their own way, and how much they care for Ciri (and how much she cares for them) is apparent in The Witcher 3.

Ines92's wonderful art of Yennefer isn't the first time she's tried her hand at capture the Sorceress.

Artist Kartriona01 might have only been posting her art on Deviantart for a short time, but the few pieces she has on her page shows a real talent for art. One of her amazing pieces is of Yennefer, with a lovely background of lilacs.
