Take on League of Legends feisty favourite Jinx in Alvin Lee’s compelling workshop
See how Alvin Lee captures the essence of the feisty character from the popular online multiplayer battler.
When I was offered the cover spot for ImagineFX, I got excited and then afraid. I was fearful of underperforming to the quality that’s expected of a cover piece, especially without my good colleagues at Riot Games to lean on.
I’ve been a professional artist for over 17 years, but only a painter for the past year and a half. To retain the support of my team mates for this cover, I opted not to do a personal piece, but instead a character from League of Legends. I could also use this piece as an opportunity to share some insight into the immensely educational, generous, and collaborative culture we uphold here at Riot Games. So this image features Jinx, arguably the most popular champion in League of Legends. What makes her so endearing is her attitude combined with unconventional sexiness. She’s basically a maniacal femme fatale with a plethora of guns, so I’m keen to capture the essence of her twistedness in this piece. With that in mind, I want to draw something captivating and sexy, with plenty of energy. Hopefully, this short workshop will document the genesis of this iconic character coming to life!
