This is more Lineless than lined, like way way more lineless! I'm starting to enjoy that more than lining ..
This was my entry for the League of Legends Art of Revelry Contest. I had submitted this design a few days before the original deadline (2nd of Feb).
This is one of my prized works as I had challenged myself into making something worth while, and yes that includes literally stroking every single fur strand , and don't get me wrong that includes the under fur as well to give it more depth. I even changed the armor to a different armor so that it would be more of a splash concept idea rather than just a simple illustration.
I didn't want to join the bandwagon either, so I did not design in the 'city' because I wanted it to be related to the game where it's designed in the forest which the game is actually set in. SO that volibear actually overlooks the fireworks while stuffing his face in tops of saying 'Happy New Year' basically. The background is supposed to be Bamboo, however my colouring skills aren't that great yet so I found that part hard, nevertheless I was okay with the background. My favourite part was the fireworks, I really think they stand out because of the wonderful glow they give out. I also love the way Volibear is holding the dumplings like saying "Cheers to a Happy new year!" :33
I had looked into the reason behind Chinese new year as a friend of mine told me it was related to 'Farming' So the background seems more fitting if you ask me, since it's a forestry background.
If you guys haven't noticed, I added in subtle details such as 'Happy new year in Chinese on the food bowl, and A Dragon Symbol on his Headband'. That headband is NOT a QuickSilver Band either, Trust me it is not.
Here were the Rules Which I followed ~ - Your entry must be your original artwork that you created yourself! - Your entry must include at least one champion and at least one item from the League of Legends in-game shop. - Your entry must be themed around Lunar Revel and the New Year! That means fireworks, lanterns, however you’d like to show it. - It should be art that you have drawn, painted, sketched or otherwise created in traditional mediums, digital or real! - Your entry must be crafted specifically for this contest. We’ve got eyes and ears everywhere, so no funny business!
However, when I read the rules with my fail Dyslexia, I took it as you were only allowed one champion and one item only. So that's why you only see Phoenix Dumplings (Health Potions) as the item, and only focusing on volibear. Ohwell, i'm hoping that it doesn't deduct points from the judging.
I have also noticed other contest entries with volibear made pandarized, and I can ASSURE you I never copied your work, as I had done this idea as soon as the contest started and I had figured my design out that day it came out. And I had drawn this way way before the extended deadline.
I am very proud of this, and I hope this does well within the contest as I had fun drawing this. Enjoy!
