Where to find Sorcerer Painting in Elden Ring

  • Location: Castle Sol. Inside the central building in the main courtyard. [Map Link]
  • To get the painting, you will need to access the central building from an opening on the roof as the main door is locked from the inside. From the Main Gate, head inside the courtyard and hug the western wall as you make your way through wooden barricades. Look for a building in the northwest with Slugs and a ladder that will allow you to climb on top of the ramparts. Follow the ramparts west until you find a wooden bridge connecting to the central building. Beware the spectral Exile enemies mounted on ballistae up here. Once you reach the central building, descend the ladder from an opening in the roof to collect the painting.

      I get the "far larger than the head is meant" aspect, but this is just comically large. I still like it, but it's so big that clips the armor. I feel like decreasing the size 10% solves that

              From the Snow Valley Ruins Overlook bonfire, travel west until you reach the bridge leading to Stargazers’ Ruins, the painter should be on the left side of the support halfway across the bridge.

                The location for the item is on the bridge above the shack of the Lofty. The bridge where the giant skeleton will shoot laser eyes at you.
