League of legends - Shyvana

Shyvana the flaming dragonlady from League of legends is one of my personal favorites.Riot reworks her champs once in a while, especially splash art and old ingame models, sadly her splash art is still the old one and looks rather .... crappy. Especially compared to the new ones.

So I made one myself. ^^
Fire, frontal assault and speed are her trademarks and so I tried to capture that.
Motion blur, and the flying particles give a sense of depth and speed.
I am very happy with how this turned out.

Getting the basic shape of her body down together with a rough idea of the color mood.

 Changing the outline's layer settings to blend them in.

Starting to clean it up.

Adjusting the contrast and colors a bit and working on the surroundings.

And finnished. Some more particels in the front for a better 
depth effect a little blur and there we go.

05.01.2014 Added a better background and reworked some parts.

    why doesn't riot put out those art spotlight videos anymore?
