Lee Sin by YngvarAsplund Lee Sin by YngvarAsplund
İRiot Games Inc.

This is an illustration I did as a tryout assignment for Riot Games last year, of the League of Legends champion Lee Sin, to see if they wanted to commission more work from me. (Which means it's not the official splash illustration for Lee Sin, just in case you were wondering.) They did offer me more work, but unfortunately I had other commitments related to my studies at the time, which would have left me thoroughly overworked.

To be honest with you, I'm not very happy with how it looks. There are tons of things I would have done differently today, which means I've actually learned a bunch of new things the past year. Hurray!
It certainly isn't up to par with the awesome Riot artwork we see today, so I'm neither surprised or offended that they haven't made use of it.
They were nice and treated me fairly, so I definitely wouldn't mind doing work for them again in the future.

Despite its flaws, I hope you like it!

I notice you haven't put any notes in the artist's comment about whose illustrations you used. It's usually a good idea to be transparent about that stuff when you post an image using art that isn't yours, so people don't think you're trying to pass it off as your own. Ideally, you should ask for permission before using it. :)

When the illustrations were made for Riot Games, like mine was, the copyrights belong to them and you should make sure to let people know that. I should warn you though, that you shouldn't really be using other people's images like that, even when they belong to Riot Games. You are breaking a few copyright laws there. I'm not gonna give you a hard time for it, but some artists will. Especially when you place a URL to your facebook page on top of it. Promoting yourself using other people's work like that is sketchy at best.
