Are you the creative type? Good at art? Maybe designing skills? What about writing an interesting story? If so, check out my Champion Creation Contest!

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=2114104

There are entries for Art, Design, Lore / Other and prizes include PAX Jax, Riot Singed, K9 Nasus, PAX Sivir, and RP!

The basic concept was taken from a poll of over 8,000 votes and is the following:

Quote:
Eponyetta

Story Basics: From the deep mists, Eponyetta, strangely dressed in the faded garbs of an Ionian mystic, emerged reeking of the Shadow Isles. Not undead and yet not quite truly living, this pale white pony wields strange magics that take the shape of muddied and decaying rainbows. Behind her sarcastic and witty attitude only one thing is known for sure: Hecarim is somehow to blame for her current state of affairs. Seeking adventure in the League, Eponyetta demands that Hecarim pay -- but for what she will not say.

Range: Ranged
Primary Role: Jungle
Secondary Role: Caster
Tertiary Role: Support
(Secondary and Tertiary Roles are just further narrowing the Champion: For example Nautilus is Primary Tank, Secondary Jungle, Tertiary Support, because while he isn't designed to be a support, he can be played as one)
IMPORTANT: You must use the basis of Eponyetta explained above as your entry point!

Think you can take those criteria and create something amazing? Well, let's find out!

The contest runs until the extended deadline of 11:59 PM Pacific on 30 June 2012. For more details check out the main thread here:

If you have any questions or comments post them here and I'll check back often to answer them. Have fun!

Below are some art entries I've already received:

Additional Info:

Art:


Create a work of art that captures the Champion concept (see above). Points go to creativity, style, and matching theme to LoL's current art style.

Basics: Eponyetta is a female pony a la My Little Pony (although not necessarily directly connected artistically). She is a white pony with a corrupted rainbow theme, so that should be incorporated. Additionally, she was somehow once connected to Ionia, so adding clothing that resembles other Ionians (specifically Soraka and Karma) is a plus. Besides that, she is not truly undead so no bones or insides should be seen -- she is merely at a stage between life and death. I suggest additional research by looking at these for further inspiration:
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_horse_%28mythology%29
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horses_in_art

Entries should be sent to StexeContest@gmail.com with the subject containing "[ART]" or they will not be counted. You may also submit them here for critique, but it will not count unless emailed. Include your Summoner name somewhere within the body of the email.


Design:

Design a skill set for the Champion concept (see above). A Skill set includes: Innate Passive, 3 Skills, 1 Ultimate. Try to include general numbers and ratios for the skills to give me an idea of their relative balance in comparison to the rest of his set, but numbers are the least important part of the design.

You may have a different set up, something like Udyr or Karma, be energy based, or have alternate forms (Nidalee), but be warned -- cohesion and synergy and more important than complexity. Some complexity is important and having duo purpose skills are allowed, but you don't get any additional points for having them. Points go to creativity, thematic fit, and synergy.

Explanation: She will primarily be a jungler with the ability to go mid, along the lines of Fiddlesticks. Therefore she should have some skills that reflect her ability to jungle/gank successfully. I've decided this role since there is a lack of caster junglers, with Fiddlesticks being the only truly caster jungler, and similar roles like Nunu, and to a lesser extent Amumu and Sejuani are under utilized as well. I also suggest that any designer should read Zileas's posts on anti-design patterns: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...d.php?t=293417

Entries should be sent to StexeContest@gmail.com with the subject containing "[DESIGN]" or they will not be counted. You may also submit them here for critique, but it will not count unless emailed. Include your Summoner name somewhere within the body of the email.


Other / Lore:

Make something relating to Eponyetta! It can be a lore back story (either bio or JoJ or whatever), a song, a comic strip, quotes, voice over work, or something else. Points go to creativity, thematic fit, and originality.

Concept: I urge anyone looking to do lore that they put some research into their work. Remember, the Champions in League of Legends are heavily fleshed out with many references to literary tropes and motifs. For further reading, I'd suggest the back stories for Ionian and Shadow Isle Champions (which can be found here: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/League_of_Legends_Wiki). Additionally, I'd suggest taking a look at the following:
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_horse_%28mythology%29
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbows_in_mythology
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epona

Entries should be sent to StexeContest@gmail.com with the subject containing "[OTHER]" or "[LORE]" or they will not be counted. You may also submit them here for critique, but it will not count unless emailed. Include your Summoner name somewhere within the body of the email.

I sure love seeing MLP everywhere I go.

I feel like if you wanted to have an art contest that could include a broad amount of creative people, you shouldn't have them create a character that only a niche group of people would be able to like. Why not just make it an equine character without specifying MLP? Especially if you said it doesn't need to relate to the shows art style.
