Client : Riot Games, Axis Studios
Director : Daniel Stolzman
Role : Art Director
In 2019 I was called to art direct internally at Axis this title for the Tales of Runeterra cinematics for Riot Games. It was a daunting and incredible experience at once. To work in such a well established world with very loved characters was a big endeavor but also a fascinating experience to work shoulder to shoulder with the incredible talented team at Axis and the passionate and creative team at Riot, pushing the pixels together.
Joining forces with Riot’s Director Daniel Stolzman and Art Director Annis Naem, we crafted the Color Script for this piece that I had the pleasure to execute. We tried to represent the themes of love and hate, darkness and light, in this dual fight between the Lunari and the Solari. Demigods fighting amidst ancient ruins built by the forgotten gods of the past, with staircases to heaven and aurora borealis which showcases Mount Targon in its full glory.
