My splash contribution to the end of season rewards for 2018, Victorious Orianna! Such a fun growing and learning experience working with so many different teams that make an event like this happen. I also had a really fun day where the whole splash team tried to figure out how to draw spiral staircases (answer: don't, make 3D XD) Thank you for all the support and feedback along the way!
Orianna belongs to League of Legends & Riot (2018)
A little bit of fanart (and also this month's Patreon reward) of my favorite Karma skin - I love the theme and Mesoamerican shape design. I had sketched up something personal when I was helping out on the Karma update, heavily inspired by Waterhouse's Lady of Shalott. I wanted to explore sun deity myths about riding boats through the sky and the cycle of death and rebirth - in the early morning, Karma is bringing the sunrise through the world.

The Rogue Assassin
My splash illustration for Akali's VGU - she is a sleek, stealthy assassin who uses her martial arts prowess to punish those who would harm her people. She is disillusioned by the invasion of her homeland, believing she is the only one who can see the injustice and the correct path to righting it. It was fun to find connections and contrasts between her and Irelia as two very different Ionian heroes.
The thumbnail sketches were one of my better attempts, I think, and we had a small tattoo-design-odyssey together trying to find the right dragon and styling. XD A million thank yous to my team for support, feedback, and help getting all of her new splashes out to players.
Edit: Thank you so much for the DD! <3
I've gotten quite a bit more into the whole Warcraft universe since taking on a rather deep Hearthstone addiction, and I found the cinematics from the Batthe For Azeroth announcement super inspiring! I ended up doodling up a couple characters, including Jaina Proudmore cool new design. Lots of fun to paint, and I'm hoping to get to a companion piece for her soon.
She is also my April Patreon reward! High res, PSD and proccess files if you'd like to see how the sausage is made XD
