Remember when you got your first look at this intimidating archer in early April? Well, when you’re ruminating on a piece of artwork, you never know where your inspiration might come from. Sometimes it’s all sunshine and butterflies, and other times your motivation hearkens from someplace gloomier than the Arctic Circle at the stroke of midnight in mid-January. And as long as we’re talking about inspiration striking from someplace dark, let’s have a closer look at the next champion of the League.

Whatever inspires you, when your muse comes knocking you’ve got to be ready to take aim and let that arrow fly. Take Varus, the Arrow of Retribution, for example. No matter how consuming his thirst for vengeance becomes, this is one indomitable archer who is always on point.

This high-speed rendition will show you just how deep the corruption runs in Varus, the Arrow of Retribution!

How long ago was this made? The art's existed for a while

though I guess since it takes several months to make a champion, you'd make the splash art a fair bit in advance

His splash art and in-game animation is very nice! However, his autoattack animation looks retarded, and many can attest to that.
