Oh noes, they be stealin' mah Baron

So, Riot announced a competition the other week to draw characters from their game, League of Legends, celebrating 'Lunar Revel', basically Chinese New Year. The prizes are pretty sweet, but I basically just really wanted to enter to say that I had. I'm so sick of flaking on things and 2012 is a busy year for me, art wise. I was massively hindered by the fact I only had a couple of days to paint it, because my trip to Center Parcs stole a whole week away from me (another post on that coming shortly!) but I think I did an okay job, all things considered. I don't think I'll place, because I've seen some amazing entries by some incredibly talented people, but here's hoping. I'm extremely proud of it, anyway. I like to imagine Jarvan and Garen are complete bros, though Sona isn't entirely impressed by their choice of reading material. She'll be even less impressed when she sees what's going on behind them while the boys are busy. Wish me luck, anyway :)

Drive-by comment. Cute drawing!

Out of curiosity, can you tell me where the rest of the contest submissions are located online? I wanted to see what other artists submitted.

Also, are you familiar with some of the artists who created the League of Legends game? I was looking at the Riot web site and wondered who the artist was for the background art here: http://i.imgur.com/SWJDS.jpg
They use that art for the background for their site news:

There's no official list yet, but you can find TONS of entries on DA if you just search "lunar revel" and this thread has a ton of submissions in it, too.

Not sure about those specific arts, but you can find a list of Riot artists that post on DA on the LoL DA community; http://leagueoflegends.deviantart.com/ - all the new Lunar Revel skin art has been posted there by the original artists, so it's a good place to start.

Amazing and HILARIOUS. I love the expression of the guy in the red coat.
