Say hi to Gromp
2Minds worked with Riot Games on the League of Legends character who eats insects and people!
“This piece gave us a lot of visibility! Working with Riot Brazil and our art directors Marco Aurélio (“Wendigo”) and Vitor Ishimura was really nice; we learned a lot from them. The studio was contacted by Ishimura who already knew our work.
We were responsible for the three first images to be released for this project: Gromp, The Wolves and Blue. Those illustrations are wallpapers for the Riot players who had to collect some objectives in the game to liberate some achievements and release the arts one by one. We are really thankful and it really made us proud! All art was digitally created, from sketches to final renders. We made a few rough sketches with layout ideas. These were the first ‘splash screen art’ for the characters, so we had to keep them very similar to their in-game models and add a lot of detail without losing their personalities.was low poly, Sincethe biggestthe model reference was the animation cycles for spawning, attacking and defeat. It was a nice challenge with a lot of positive feedback from fans. We really enjoyed working on it.”
