Oh. My. GOD. Ive been watching you for a while now, and have been playing League of Legends for 3-4 years now, and I had absolutely NO CLUE you did this. I want to intern with Riot and eventually work for them too, and THIS. When I saw this as a release for her rework, I cried. Now I'm gonna cry again because I found out that my favorite artist on DA created this! MY TWO FAVORITE THINGS IN ONE!! <3 GO SHILIN. I LOVE YOU!

okay, I can't keep myself from asking anymore. Was there any inspiration to Sona's design from Hatsune Miku. Whenever I play Sona I can't help but see her as Miku.

Wow, so you're the one that made this picture. While I think this is an incredible piece of art, Sona is one of my most favorite champions and so I get a little nitpicky. I've always been bothered by her left (our right) hip. It looks ao oddly out of place like it's disjointed, basically. I've always been bothered by that and now I finally get the chance to say something about it. Other than that, I think it's perfect and is miles ahead in terms of quality from her previous splash art. Good work!

This is cool, ur the guy that made the new sona art! There are so many champions that needed a remade artwork however and sona was in my opinion not one of them (in comparison to how bad the others are, like Sion and Cho Gath and Poppy and Shaco)

In Sona's case I thought her artwork was fine already, she had such a humongous rack and it's less visible in this one, there's a similar story with morgana too (although she still has her big rack, it's just that it was bigger!) my point is that the champion artwork for females is fine as long as they've got something good to look at :la:

But I'm not complaining, I love this artwork too, it's much better than the old one (and the old one was one of the first presentable artworks League of Legends ever had!)

When i looked at this in league of legends i was like, "Do i know this artists?" (I watched you in my old account) and then i realized YOU made this. Srsly i love this splash art more than her original the last one was good but she looked a little too much like Lulu from FFX. Btw I love playing Sona and thank you for making this is amazingpeice of art ^^.

Don't think about it like that. Think about it instead as a goal you want to reach. She can do art this good, and so can anyone else who is willing to spend the time and dedication to get this good ^^

Easier said than done. It's hard to not feel discouraged when you look at something like this. Imagine looking at the tallest mountain in the world and having someone tell you that you have to climb it. Is it impossible? No. But there's no way you won't feel uneasy.

:icontheheaddealerish:
TheHeadDealerIsh Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yea but if you have no experience or not a lot of experience, that person who told you that would be a moron who probably wants you dead lol.


If your goal is to scale the largest mountain in the world, you must first start by scaling the smaller ones, and then when you comfortably scale those, move up the tier of tall mountains until you are good enough to get to the top of the largest. It's how you do it with rock climbing or mountain climbing, and art is no different ^^ Just practice a lot, do a bunch of studies every day or at least every week, and you WILL see results. Shillin got there with her blood sweat and tears, meaning others can do the same if they are willing to put in as much dedication as her (Or for some people, more or even less depending on their aptitude for it). 


I've been drawing for about 13 years now, and look how far that has got me. I have a LONG ways to go to get to shillin's level, but instead of feeling discouraged when I see her art or others art that is better than mine, I look at it as "This is my goal."

I know that also doing studies on peoples art can help you when you get to a certain level of ability. You take an artwork you are given permission to repaint, and then you draw it from the ground up while trying to figure out how the artist did it themselves. My friends have done this and they say they learned and understood a lot by doing it =)
