A molten skin would be sweet! I was thinking last last playing trundle that his Pillar of Filth spell would look sweet as a huge ice burg! North Pole Trundle, or something along those lines, haha.

I've been meaning to start a blog - but I often take my skins work home with me (because I really love working them!) and the rest of my time goes to community games with you all, martial arts and swing dancing. But when I DO start that blog, I'll post it here

Hey RiotPenguin~

I'm an aspiring concept artist. Do you have any tips or insights or stuff on the job? I mean, I've researched the job before which is why I'm interested but I want to hear a kind of personal view ((?) idk how else to say this...)

Here are two threads where I've answered a bunch of questions about concept art as a profession - Take a look at these and let me know if you have any other questions :]

You have not yet known the true terror,

Of Cottontail Teemo.

Edit: If ever there was a time to tryhard, it's probably when one of those is on the enemy team.

FAQs:

"What do you do at Riot?"
-- I'm a concept artist working on skins and various other projects

"How long have you been at Riot?"
-- Coming up on a year in March!

"What have you worked on that we've seen?"
-- I've design Headless Hecarim; the World Championship Summoner's Cup; and all the ward skins and summoner icons for the Shadow Isles and Snowdown events.

"So what are you working on now?
-- Unfortunately much of what I work on has yet to be announced, and until it is I cant talk about it :[

"What about personal side projects?
-- I've been meaning to start a blog - but I often take my skins work home with me (because I really love working them!) and the rest of my time goes to community games with you all, martial arts and swing dancing. But when I DO start that blog, I'll post it here!

"Can I add you? "
-- Of course! But keep in mind, if I don't accept it's because my friends list is maxed out, not because I don't like you...But fear not! I clear my friends list at the beginning of the week, so everyone gets the chance to get in touch :]

"Wanna join me and my friends for some 5s?"
-- For sure! But keep in mind I only have a limited amount of time to play in the evenings, and am generally busy at work...so please don't take it the wrong way if I don't respond :[ --- Also keep an eye on my in-game status! If it's green and says "Riot Penguin's Party!" That means I'm playing community games, so feel free to say hi!....But if it's yellow and says "@work" or "Zzzzz...." I'm either busy, playing with a team at work, or just afk, so I may or not reply.

"I have this weird bug, can you tell Riot to fix it?"
-- Sort of...but I'd just do the same thing you would - which is submit a player support ticket! They are pretty good at staying on top of bug reports.

"Can you explain why they are changing ______?"
-- Not really - I work on the art team - so beyond making the game look awesome, I don't know much more than you do about the inner workings of League...sorry!

"So who will the next few skins be for?"
-- As much as I'd love to share whats coming down the pipe, you all know very well that I can't tell you about anything that hasn't been officially announced yet ;]

"Is it true you want evil skins for every champion?"
-- (Ok no one actually asked me that....but I do really want evil skins for ALL champions >:] )
Dear RiotPenguin I have a gift for you!

A collection of links with Player's Skin Concepts and Suggestions!

Please take a look at all of them and please consider making them!
