Bard: The Wandering Caretaker by robynlauart Bard: The Wandering Caretaker by robynlauart
FINALLY DONE! Happy Birthday Bard :)

Bard is the adorable new champion from League of Legends, coming out REAL SOON, probably TODAY :O!

This piece was really challenging with all the different light sources, but lots of fun to do. Still so much to learn, I can't wait for the next challenge.

Yeah, bard is super flexible! He has so much engage and disengage as well with his portal and ult, it's rare to see a champion with so much utility. :)

Oh man thanks so much! Your words mean a lot.
When I was making this piece I could see the moment in my head... him walking out the portal and Caitlyn being limp there, the meeps watching curiously and chime sounds ringing with the wind blowing. I tried so hard to capture it and I'm glad if some of that came through in my work! Thanks a lot :) :hug:

Really glad this can be one of your favorites out there, I felt like Bard can be a very selfless/helpful support so I'm happy you enjoyed that aspect of it :D!

Spectacular work and worthy of praise! Recently started playing this guy and I gotta say he might just be my new main. This picture really represents the magical feel Bard has around him as well as his duty as Caretaker. Well done!

Dude, what the heck!
I was totally admiring your latest piece earlier today and added it to my collections.
I'm really honored that you added my work to your favorites and that you're watching me!
You're an amazing artist, I hope to continue learning from you as you publish new work. :)!

Thanks a bunch man! I'm humbled by your presence. I am a dummy!

It's actually quite fitting for him to carry his wounded teammate through a Magical Journey Tunnel because you know, he's a support :P
Help them escape
Heal them
Or to make it even more entertaining, throw your ult and killsteal ^^

Aww thanks man!
I'm actually quite out of the loop, at least in the online community.
My friend :iconsaarmander: and I just hermit out in our studio and that's motivation enough.
I think friendly competition with friends is the best, or at least it's what's worked out for me. :)

If you don't have many art friends, you can try a facebook group called Level Up!. They do weekly YouTube videos.
I also used to draw on Gaia Online a lot, which turns it into a game since you can make virtual bucks to dress your virtual character xD

Anyways, hope that helps!
Thanks for your support :)

Guess you don't read the boards often.

basically, some people (and my post being the most prominent having red posts) we get to the conclusion that the bard is a dick that doesn't care about people if the worlds are balanced.
