Riot Games is giving behind-the-scenes access to its Legends of Runeterra art team with the introduction of ‘Draw with Riot’ – a live-streamed art masterclass with leading Riot artists
Riot Games will create new art for Legends of Runeterra (LoR) – the developer’s newly-launched collectible card game – in an interactive global livestream. At 6PM BST on Friday 29th May 2020, the first-ever ‘Draw with Riot’ livestream will take place, hosted by Principal Concept Artist Chris Campbell, who will be designing art for a new character concept during an interactive art masterclass.
The inaugural ‘Draw with Riot’ will be an opportunity for LoR fans and art enthusiasts to peek behind the curtain of Riot’s character creation process and learn the techniques used to bring the world of Runeterra to life.
Following the two-hour live stream, the community will be invited to share their versions of the new unit via Twitter, using @playruneterra and #drawwithriot. 11 lucky winners will be chosen, receiving a selection of in-game Legends of Runeterra prizes, including new champions, epic cards, rare cards and expedition tokens, as well as being featured on @playruneterra. The winner of the best piece of art will also get the unique opportunity to speak with Principal Concept Artist, Chris, one-on-one! The winners will be announced on the @playruneterra Twitter page on 10th June 2020.
Stay tuned and check the official ‘playruneterra’ social channels for more information about the upcoming stream and how to get involved on Friday 29th May at 6PM BST.
