Arcade Hecarim by i-hate-mushroomz Arcade Hecarim by i-hate-mushroomz
Made this for my lovely girlfriend, LoudlyWhispered, a while ago. Figured I'd upload it to give people a taste of my traditional work.

100% Prismacolor coloured pencils.

Roughly 40 hours total.

Arcade Hecarim splash art, League of Legends. Copyright Riot Games. Reference used: lol.esportspedia.com/w/images/…

Edit:
Wow, a DD! I never expected so much attention! I apologise for not putting the previous information up sooner. This was a gift for my girlfriend and the point of it was to try to get it as similar as possible to the original splash art. I did not ask for a DD. I have feelings, please try to remember that. Telling me that my work is copied and traced really wears me down. I put quite a bit of work into this, not for you people, but for my girlfriend. I understand that some of you disagree with this getting a DD--fine. Take it up with the volunteer who featured it, not with me.

To the other people who are looking past the similarity and actually comment on my technique, thank you. I'm glad that some people like this. Here are some WIP shots from when I was working on it, taken with my webcam haha, so sorry for the quality.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-08-12
Arcade Hecarim by Grimsever

The suggester says, "The vibrant colours and dynamic pose bring life to this League of Legends champion. On top of that, the shading and lighting here are incredibly well executed; the armour looks as tough as iron, and you can almost feel the swing of the axe smash through the confines of its 2D medium."

I congratulate you for your DD. 
I'm not sure i agree with this as a Daily Deviation though.. It is literally a copied piece of someone elses work. The work came out very amazing, outstanding work, it really does look identical to the splash art. I just dont think that is in good taste for this particular piece to be picked. 
Out of all the great pictures in this persons gallery to feature.. This one was chosen? o,o 
I think his other pieces are just as great too... Would've made more sense to choose those.

Then why not credit the source? The person who nominated it for daily deviation praises them for their choice of dynamic pose, when they didn't make it at all, the only thing the artist has to be praised for it their use of color pencil, which I am not saying isn't nice, but I hate how another artists work is being put up as their own daily deviation. It disgusts me.

I didn't mean to present it as my own. I never thought that this would get so popular. I apologise for the mixup; the description has been updated to show the proper information.

Had I known I'd get a DD, I'd have updated it long beforehand.

Had the artist known that they were going to get a Daily Deviation today, I'm sure they would have included the source. It just started out as a gift for his girlfriend, no need to make a hissy fit just because it isn't properly cited.

And as I said before here, I have already contacted them way before anyone could lay a finger on the issue, and am still awaiting their response as they haven't been active for a short amount of time.

In the meantime, enjoy chocolatezoo's credit while this artist is away - something I'm surprised that you seemed to have overlooked with your solid argument.

Sorry to disgust you, but just because you can't get immediate results for something that's broken, doesn't mean no one is trying to fix it. ;)

Since the artist has yet to place the link to the original piece, I'll do it for him!

Arcade Hecarim belongs to Riot Games. 

The original art belongs to Riot's amazing artist.
