Leona League of Legends Sculpture by LeiliaClay Leona League of Legends Sculpture by LeiliaClay
Wooo, she's finally finished!! :D

Leona from the online game League of Legends, commissioned by a very good friend(who also happens to work for Riot!). More views can be seen here:



Ummm, may I just say that I am REALLY freaking proud of how this turned out? I was determined to go above and beyond any of my previous human character sculptures with this one, and I really feel like the work paid off. In the past I've really not enjoyed sculpting people, but I actually had a blast with her! I got a chance to try out so many new techniques, it was quite an adventure! :D

I somewhat based the style of the sculpture on these adorable Disgaea figurines my friends and I used to collect([link]). I'm really tempted to sculpt more characters in this style, it was a lot of fun!

Leona was sculpted from a mixture of Super Sculpey/Sculpey Firm polymer clay over a wire and foil armature. She was painted with acrylic paints. She was sealed with Testor's Dullcote, and the eyes and metallic parts were glazed with Varathane's water-based Polyurethane. The base was stained and glazed as well. Including the base Leona stands 3 inches tall.

Yeah, she's pretty little. To give you an idea, the "base" that I used is actually supposed to be a wooden checker piece. XD

This came out really great! I'm just so impressed with how you keep improving with sculpting, and keep challenging yourself. I love how her shield and sword can be removed, too. *_*

Oh gosh, thanks so much. o_o Honestly, I'm kind of amazed at how this turned out as well, I really wasn't sure if I could pull off what I was envisioning!

Making the sword and shield removable was definitely an interesting challenge! The sword is slightly unstable, but the shield stays pretty well. I added a handle to the back which ended up kind of neat! :D
