I'm also interested if you make the dances.

Your job sounds very vital since it sounds like you make the shape and motion parts based on ideas given to you then?

Or am I confused.

Can we have a details explanation of what you do so we can form better questions?

Is Riot looking for more artists or art interns? That's something I'm definitely considering to apply for next year.

If you do the rigging for the 3D models, can you share some tips for some of us community modders to learn from? Thanks.

Hmm! Well, of the released maps I like the art direction on Twisted Treeline more because it has more ambient mood to me. The lights in Summoner's Rift are a bit washed out. I will also say, however, that we're bringing on a bunch of new environment artists these days and the Magma Chamber is looking AWESOME so far. I'm really excited to see how it turns out!

Which art specifically? I think the new splash art represents her pretty well. That being said, she WILL eventually be getting a big graphical update along with many other champions (sorely needed probably, as she's one of our oldest characters!).

Skipping most other questions related to champ/ splash re-dos, as the answer in most cases is... probably!

That's a cool idea! I don't have any knowledge of wallpapers being created internally, but hopefully we'll eventually do this sort of thing. Meanwhile, the community has been making some awesome stuff! Maybe we'll release more source images like a high-rez pentakill logo eventually.

Honestly, I'm really happy with the Alien Heimerdinger custom turrets. I think they look good, and it felt great to add on some content that many players felt was sorely missing in the existing skin. Props to Drachis for his part in those turrets as well!

Oh, also, I really enjoyed animating Swain. In his main idle, I had a lot of fun animating Beatrice. (His bird... I named her that... >_>;; )

Great! We have some really talented people working with us from Tencent, and it's really inspiring to see other artists creating great images from your world. We'll probably continue to collaborate with them on future pieces!

I think Magicians are pretty baller. I think it looks good, but I'd enjoy adding some new animations to spice him up a bit. Would be fun! No guarentee that this will happen tho.

Who's been the most gratifying, overall, champion to work on thus far?
I work on dances, rigs, all sorts of animations, and script tools for the art team! I do not directly make particles.

Urgot was the first champion I was the main animator on, and he was REALLY challenging for me. He's a creepy, clunky quadraped with some oddly implemented moves. That being said, it was a huge thrill to see a champion I animated on released in game, and I think he turned out pretty cool! His dance is amusing. Watch him jiggle.

Now I just wish we'd buff him so I can E-Q spam people more. :B

I noticed the new art has really stepped it up a notch when compared to the old... Are you responsible for this? There has been drastic improvements over the last eight months.

Would you ever consider importing a Canadian to join the Riot art department?
This is a big question! We definitely have guidelines, but generally if the art department thinks of something cool and it doesn't disrupt gameplay, we'll do it. We always keep in mind the flavor of the world, however, and try to maintain a unified vision. This is sometimes a challenge as we're currently short an art director.

Thanks for the comments on our improvements! I'd like to think I was partly responsible, but it's a big group effort.

I believe there are already Canadians working with Riot, but I can't think of who off hand. D: But the answer is definitely yes. We're a very multi-national company.

My Ping Pong ELO compared to other Riot Employees is probably 800. QQ

I have Shaco because I've always been JesterCapp on these internets and enjoy jester characters. I'm actually not a shaco player! I really love that splash art, however, and am happy with how the pose I did translated to the final image. Roadki11 and I collaborate on most of the splash art.



Okay, done with the second batch. I'll respond to more comments soon. Thanks everyone!
