A general question I've had is why doesn't splash art exist in a wallpaper size? It seems like it'd be easy to do and fan-friendly. There are some for like Kayle and whatnot under the media tab, but why can't we do it for every skin?

Also, that new Pool Party Leona splash is what's making me come forth and post.

You can actually pretty much find any splash art stretched out in Google images, with minimal quality deterioration. For example look at Draven or Nami. They're zoomed out to 1920x1080 (1080p), and the quality still looks really good.

Also, I don't foresee Riot upgrading their splash art native resolutions from 1215 x 717 to something higher. It's more work the artists have to put into the pictures, and they would also have to natively change the resolution of the LoL client as well to accommodate the change in splash art resolutions.

Also, here's Leona's Pool Party Splash Art in 1080p.

I think in general digital artists draw at a much higher resolution than the given 1215 x 717. The resizing is probably done after the image is drawn and for the sake of implementing it into the client.

It just seems like an easy and intuitive thing to do.
