Ekko - League of Legends fan art by Jin Hyun

“Ekko, the boy who shattered time, is one of the champions in League of Legends. While working on Ekko, I envisioned a skilled assassin who defeats his enemies and anyone who challenges him. Ekko’s abilities help him to capture the enemy’s base.

In order to create a high polygon model of Ekko, I attempted to utilize the daring proportions and silhouettes associated with Riot characters. During the design process, however, I was faced with the unique challenge of having two disparate references: the video game trailer and the game itself. Rather than merely basing Ekko on one reference, I opted to integrate both designs.

When working on the textures, I picked complementary colors to enhance Ekko’s original design. As with all characters in League of Legends, I handpainted Ekko to create diffuse textures. Furthermore, Specular and Normal maps were used for final rendering of Ekko in Marmoset Toolbag to express the next generation game character.”

Annie has decided to marry the only ad carry she likes to support: Graves. (Completly platonic, and if you could add some TF/Graves that'd be much apreciated!)

She put on her best dress for this, dressed up Tibbers in his fanciest bow tie, and walks like a girl on a mission. No skipping today, she was doing this like a lady.

After all, she was getting married!

Except she couldn’t find her groom, and it was making her really mad. She puffed out her cheeks as she scoured the Loading Lobby, unable to find him. But his friend was there, so she went to him instead.

“Hello, lil’lady.” Twisted Fate greeted kindly, tipping his hat to her. “You’re looking all dressed up, pretty as a pearl. Special occasion?”

Annie giggled, pleased he thought she looked good. She had better! She threatened Lux to help her with her makeup!

“Yup! I’m getting married!” Twisted Fate raised his brows, surprised.

“Are you now? Who’s the lucky man, then?”

“Mr. Graves!” Annie informed him, bouncing on her heels and hugging her bear, not noticing the expression on his face. Jax cackled like a madman until Riven shoved him in the side with her elbow.

“What ‘bout me?” Graves drawled as he left the bathroom, brow raised as he moved to light his cigar.

The cigar disappeared in a pop, and Graves scowled at the ceiling. The Riot Games logo continued to glow, unaffected by his rage. Annie stopped bouncing, suddenly caught shy, face red and hiding it behind her bear.

“Mr. Graves… You’re the best ADC ever! And I’m the best support ever! That’s why…” She rummaged around inside Tibbers and pulled out a ring pop, cherry, by the looks of it. She held it out to him, bashful. “Will you marry me?”

Malcom Graves stared blankly at the candy ring presented to him, then at Twisted Fate with narrowed eyes, as if he were responsible. Twisted Fate stared back, shrugging. Jax was wheezing, and Annie was losing patience.

“…Hey! Marry me!” She snapped, tone getting darker with a slight whine. Tibbers’ eyes lit up, immediately attracting everyone’s attention.

“That’s a lil’ fast to pull on a man, Annie,” Twisted Fate cut in just before Graves spoke. “Maybe you should wait a couple of years, Malcom’s the shy kind. The type that needs to be wooed.”

Graves looked at him like he lost his mind, but the mage ignored him, still with his charming smile. Annie frowned, considering, then huffed.

”That’s dumb! I-” They were interrupted by the sudden warp to the Fields of Justice, and suddenly everyone was in a hurry to get their items and go, with Annie huffing and puffing up a storm behind them.

“Tobias, I’m gonna kick yer ass. Wooing?”

“Well, I had to put in work.” Before Graves could quip something back at him, Twisted Fate was already heading towards midlane. Graves sighed, ignoring the little girl trying to make eyes at him. This was going to be a very long game.
