League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle video game developed by Riot Games. Rebecca’s work can be seen at the end of the promotional music video. As usual, Rebecca successfully brings exciting perspective on space, colour, and scene. League of Legends is one of the most played PC games in the world, so we are incredibly excited to announce that Rebecca played a part in the process!
We had a chat with Rebecca about her creative process and her thoughts on this project. Check out what she said below, and be sure to watch the video and see the magic for yourself!
How did you decide to approach this specific job?
This was a treat for me--the job was to paint two viewpoints of an imagined, sun-drenched, cozy bedroom, which is basically everything I love to do. I collected images of interior paintings and background paintings I loved, and thought about what bedrooms I'd love to send my time in, and how I'd decorate them.
How was this job different than others?
I was given a lot of freedom after the initial concept was decided. The clients were very good about explaining the details they needed to be clear, and then I was set loose. The images themselves needed to be very detailed and hi-def, while usually I've working on pieces that need to be simple or small.
Any other general thoughts on the project?
I was asked to paint these very quickly, considering the level of detail. All this meant was that I painted them mostly start-to-finish in one sitting. I built the whole image up at once instead of cutting it into chunks, which allows for an easier flow when painting. It had been a while since I'd painted a background-style image, and so I had missed painting in this style!
