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 )

I honestly had to stop and just be in awe of this. i am absolutely in love with the sword, just everything from how it's bending and warping to the flowing blue energy. UGH, this makes me feel like taking the extra time in pieces is actually worth it.
