Heya! Zyra the 101st Champion is finally out! She's the first champion that I've designed at Riot. So far, the level of excitement and anticipations of the huge league community has been crazy! so thanks to all!
Now that Zed is out I can share with you some of the concept art that went into his creation.
This image is a turn around of the character, which is created towards the end of a Champion design to inform production on key details of the character. A lot of iteration is involved in getting to this stage which is what I will post next!
Here's the turn around and final design for Draven. We do a full "turn around" of the character making final decisions about surfaces, materials and proportion, then the 3D modeler (The BadAss omonteon [link]) has all the info they need to get started and take it to the next level!
For a further breakdown of the design process for Draven go HERE >> [link]
More League of Legends artwork soon! All the Best - Σ
This is the first piece of concept art created for Fiora - The Grand Duelist! As you can see some of her costume details changed in the final design (i'll post her final turn around in a bit) but it's always fun to see the initial vibe of a Champion.
Just jumped on the MOBA bandwagon this year to see what all the hub-bub was about! Anyway I probably played way too much League of Legends when I started, went from lvl1-30 in like a month, pretty bad considering my freelance artist deadlines/workload. >_>''
I actually don't play any of these characters extensively but I liked the variety of their design and some are kinda iconic to the game, I also really wanted to use Jarvan's Ult for the lava effect.
My mains are Riven, Volibear, Tristana, Lee Sin and Nidalee :]
New patch will feature Zed's autoattacks causing explosions ( I wish)
Sorry for the bad quality of this, I cba making a background..so it turned out like this >.>
My friend always has the misfortune of having people killing her target before her ulti hits. It's nearly always when it is already launched (cd already starts counting here). Lately, our team finds it extremely fun to jump in and autoattack when she yells at us on skype that her ult is up.
