History

They give up

As an animatic (moving storyboards that provide a blueprint for a CG production), Miss Fortune: Give Up was developed to test out a new technical pipeline, but morphed into a character study in the process.

They give up

He's against the wall. Bad luck for them. There is only one way out alive and they are not taking advantage of it.

Starring: Miss Fortune

Death Mark

Zed: Death Mark explored a visual style that reflects the ninja's iconic abilities in the game, and also served as internal proof that 2D animation could be just as mature, gritty, and fascinating as its 3D counterpart.

Death Mark (Video)

This assassin doesn't just attack from the shadows ... he's the shadow. And they don't have a chance.

Starring: Zed

Fear

Darius: Fear was an opportunity to explore character by putting a champion completely out of combat and his familiar abilities in the game. It was also a technical test, exploring a 3D character with 2D painted textures and a multiplane parallax environment.

Fear

Freljord wolves are wild predators. But they have never faced a man like him.

Starring: Darius

Weaver of Light

Lux: Weaver of Light came about when Riot invited an animator to explore his unique vision of the Lady of Light. The result was this intimate and evocative piece.

Weaver of Light

Behind the LoL Animation Workshop

By DYQUILL [2]

Riot has a history of technical experiments and character studies that are generally not scheduled for release as standalone pieces. Instead, creations of this type tend to get sucked into the development process, rolled into the colorful katamari of a more ambitious end product.



Among these creations are a series of short animations that we have put together and called the LoL Animation Workshop, a collection straight from the workstations of Riot animators, exploring familiar champions in styles, techniques, settings and moods. very different.

Some of what you'll see is standard "fighting porn," like a ninja hacking and dicing a squad of Noxians. Other animations point to an out-of-frame world or give an impression of what champions are like when they're not busy hitting each other in the Rift. They all represent the craft and care that gives League of Legends champions a life beyond the game.

We hope you enjoy this look at our workshop.
