I’ve been wanting to do a short documentary about how different the cosplay process is for folks with disabilities. I’ve seen plenty of things talking about social issues like race, gender, and weight in cosplay, but I’ve really only heard about Misa on Wheels in terms of advocating for cosplayers with disabilities. I’d like to change that. As a disabled cosplayer myself, I know how important it is to see others succeed when you feel it’s impossible. 

She wants to make a documentary on disabled cosplayers. If you could donate or signal boost this post, that’d be amazing! Thanks! The funding page is right here.

That’s me! It would be super cool if you could reblog to get the word out there. It’d be even cooler if you could donate!

Hecarim

He’s done it again folks! It took FOREVER, but I’d say it was worth it. I’m giving him Sona next as a nice break, and he’s not allowed to draw in photoshop anymore because he gets too perfectionist.


The description we used was:

“He is a centaur (4 horse legs with human torso/arms) but made out of a ghostly blue/grey set of metal armor. It is legitimately floating armor, but with ghostly neon blue flames to represent his skin under the armor. The shoulder plates for his horse legs are metallic skulls. And on the top of his head he has a large blade that ends in a point in the back ( somewhat similar to an ice skate ) and lastly he has a large metal spear that he carries in his human hands.”

 


Our artist had this to say:

"When I began to plan my work on Hecarim and form an idea from the description it seemed like he(?) was a lich like skeleton fire warrior centaur. So as I began I set out my research looking for centaur skeletons, dark knights (thanks for making that hard Batman), fire creatures such as the elementals in Lorwyn, horses, and various type of armor. I ended up with a good amount of references before I started, and had an entirely different drawing fairly well plotted out, and the coloring began. I then packed to leave for work and subsequently hadn’t saved photoshop. I was for lack of any other fitting words livid about that.

My second attempt is the drawing here, and it came out fairly well and the metals only looked better as I went on. I started out with the skull and helmet which have the least amount of contrast causing them to look more faded. The next step was the chest plate that is more shiny looking since I tried to compensate for how faded the helmet looked. Next I worked on the Left Gauntlet, and shoulder pieces which start to really express the right light/dark contrast needed to really express what metal is supposed to look like. The final parts were the Halberd, front and back armor, and the right gauntlet which are fully realized in the right mixture of light and dark for metals, and I think really stand out.

This was a lot of fun to draw, but got really tiresome at the end. I hope you like it, and it’s at least close

I’d say that’s pretty damn close. If you’d like to take a look at the reference pictures he was talking about, check out the video in the last post.


Also! Our studio just hit 100 likes on facebook and we gave some stuff away, but it is rapidly approaching another giveaway milestone so we’d love it if you could go become a fan! You might even win some stuff!

We made a video that talks about the process our artist goes through to make the League of Art drawings. Please Enjoy!

Also, we’ll both be at Connecticon this weekend. I’ll be cosplaying Shanks from One Piece and he’s gonna be a lamebutt and just go as himself, but if you see either of us feel free to come say hi!

One more thing! I wrote a blog on my personal experience with pro gaming, particularly the LoL scene. It’s not much, nor is it very good, but if you could show it some love I’d be very appreciative! http://kickmesign.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/pro-gaming-is-a-thing/

naxts asked:

I got a quick question. How long is the artist going to be doing this before he actually plays league? Or is he simply never going to play league?

He is probably never going to play. I’ve been trying to get him to play for a while now, but he knows he’d get too into it and not get anything done. That being said, I think if you guys really wanted to see him play we could peer pressure him into it :P

Teemo(s)!

Aside from the color, I think he got the second one pretty close!


On drawing these two, our artist had this to say: “I read the two descriptions and didn’t know if I was supposed to do two or one, so I drew 2 of them.

One was more rat army looking, while the other drawing seemed to be described more as cute. My biggest issue was misreading the word black somewhere, and convincing myself he had black fur. After I was shown the Champ I was kicking myself in the head because I had originally thought to make his fur white and light brown, like most hamsters. Eh Can’t win them all right?”

"Teemo - a small furry creature with piercing red eyes. His mouth is full of sharp jagged teeth and they’re almost always dropping in blood. He has a round green hat on with goggles on the brim. He carries a blowdart and shoots people with darts filled with poison. When he kills his victims, he stands over their already festering poisoned corpses and cackles maniacally."

"Tiny blonde bipedal anthropomorphic hamster with a green safari cap containing goggles and a blue tuft at the top. Wields a blowgun. Bag on back full of maps rolled up. Red mane type thing around neck. Also has a telescope hanging from his neck. Most importantly - ALWAYS HAS A SMUG ASS FACE WHEN HE MURDERS YOU VICIOUSLY.”

Make sure to come join the discussion over on Reddit and like our studio on Facebook!

Our artist lost this month’s Art Fight Club so he gets punched in the gut :( … you do get a sneak peek of one of the Teemos though!

Teemo Progress

So instead of taking both the descriptions and using them to draw one thing, he decided to draw two different Teemos for you guys! The should be up sometime this week, and he even colored them for you! For some reason he thought Teemo had black fur, but other than that, they’re pretty close!

I gave him both of these … we’ll see how he takes it!

Not sure if Ez or Taric …

We’ve got a lot of descriptions! We’re gonna be busy for a while! Based on what you guys are giving us I think either Hec or Teemo will be next.
