Whatyer Making Boy? - King Rammus & Plumber Teemo
After dropping off my Baron and Teemo sculpture at Riot Games (US) a while back, I shortly received a few emails for more LoL commissions from Riot employees. The first person I responded to named some of her favorite champions, and out of that list the two that popped up first were Rammus and Teemo.
Rammus had a Bowser inspired skin that was available to the League Of Legends beta testers, and Teemo has a skill where he would plant explosive mushrooms (which in this piece, his mushroom has a 1Up inspired color scheme). Then I thought, why not make a Mario Bros. inspired skin for Teemo?
I suggested this team and theme to her and she approved quite elatedly, and shortly after I got home, I started working on it.
It took me almost three weeks to complete — maybe up to 4-5 hrs each night. If this can be also used as a measurement of time spent on this piece, I watched all the episodes of Wonder Years and all the episodes of Parks and Recreation available on Netflix (lol).
Rammus’ shell was probably the tedious part I had to work on with all the little details and spikes I had sculpted. I had to work on it separately from his body, then attach them together. Everything was made using polymer clay and hand-brushed with acrylic paints. The figure stands at about 4 ½ inches tall from the bottom of the base to the tip of his tallest spike.
Next on the commission list are 3 individual champions requested from one Riot employee. Stick around to see who they are. ^_^
