Fanart: Riven by shilin Fanart: Riven by shilin
[edit: thanks so much for another DD!!]

A gift to my girlfriend Zinganza of her favourite champ c: I sketched this almost a year ago and finished at the end of last year on livestream, but I felt that version was too flat and empty and fell below my expectations with the gradient background, so I painted on some clouds last month since clouds solve everything YAAA!!!!! I originally wanted to go for some swooshy effect of her sword forming or disintegrating, something I really wished her ingame ult animation had, but the rendering kinda took some of the flow away in the end ):

I'll be painting one or two more league illusts to go with this one of her other favourite champs in the future, but probably not anytime soon ;-;

I'll be selling prints of this painting among others at Toronto Comicon this weekend, along with the newly released Carciphona volume 4! come find us at Artist Alley A80 :D

Fanart: Riven by shilin A truly amazing LoL fanart, that green flame effect really makes the whole artwork stand out. The lighting is also amazing. Well done! ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by Ry-Spirit )
