Riot Games - Japan and New Art!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 1, 2015, 11:15 AM

Hey guys!  It's been awhile since I've been active here on DA, and alot has happened as I've been gone!

I have a backlog of messages & notes here on DA to get to, so I may not be able to answer everyone at this time!  Commissions are also closed for now, as I am working full time.  I want to thank everyone who commissioned me!!  I always very much appreciate your support and interest!

I've been working in house at Riot Games in Santa Monica CA as an Illustrator/Splash Artist for a little over 2 years now and have been working on many of the in game champion and skin illustrations.  Below are some of the splash illustrations I have gotten the opportunity to work on:

Challenger Ahri Splash by MichelleHoefener Arcade Miss Fortune Splash by MichelleHoefener Headhunter Caitlyn Splash by MichelleHoefener River Spirit Nami Splash by MichelleHoefener Heartseeker Ashe Splash by MichelleHoefener Pop Star Ahri Splash by MichelleHoefener Snowstorm Sivir Splash by MichelleHoefener Bloodstone Lissandra Splash by MichelleHoefener Panda Annie Splash by MichelleHoefener

Getting the opportunity to work on League of Legends has been awesome!  I've gotten the opportunity to meet and work with so many amazing artists and masters in the industry, many of them are some of my favorite artists who I have looked up to for a long time which has been an amazing experience!

In the last year I have also gotten the chance to attend the Illustration Master Class and learn and be inspired by so many legendary great masters and artists I have also really looked up!  I was totally blown away!!

I've also traveled to Korea and Japan, which has been my first experience traveling out of the US!  Spending time in Tokyo Japan was a really exciting and inspiring experience and I already want to go back!

I hope to also find time to do more personal art and fan art too!  I will be posting my new work at the following places:

:bulletblue: Artstation
:bulletblue: Sketch Blog

I hope everyone is having a good year!  Looking forward to 2015!
