The Summoner Approaches by jbcasacop The Summoner Approaches by jbcasacop
STORY

The summoner draws power from the spirits of those whose hearts have become tainted with bloodlust and greed. The spirits collected by him are then forced to do his bidding. One such purpose given to these enslaved souls is to find other sources of power. Only those who know the meaning of mercy stand a chance against him. Defeating him is no simple task for in order to accomplish this, the grave of his earthly vessel must first be found and then whatever there is to be found at that site must be destroyed. Many have tried but failed...

ARTIST'S NOTES:

I used a set of brushes having canvas textures set to height mode.

Done in Photoshop CS5.

This is a really amazing piece!! Congrats! It reminds me a lot of Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the beginning, although this one has a more mature look to it.

amazing piece.

but I just gotta say, I can't help but think of Meta Knight when I see this. the helmet, the shoulder armor, the dark cape, and a big sword just instantly brings to mind said villainous video game character

Meta Knight? Haha, that's new! He often gets compared to Kassadin (is it Kassadin?) from LOL. I'm glad you like this piece! Thanks! :D

Yup! This was featured in issue 76. They got the title wrong though. It should be "The Summoner Approaches" instead of "The Summer Approaches". I keep forgetting to send them an email about it. But my work doesn't get published very often so I'm still very happy. :)

Ahhhh, I remember thinkimg the name seemed a bit strange at the time, and there's the reason!
Its a brilliant piece though and you really deserved to get a featured. I just hope I will be able to one day as well.

That's interesting. I haven't played LoL before but they do have similar features! Hahaha! It's funny that a character with these features have manifested in the imagination of many people! Maybe there is an actual dark lord like this one who travels in people's minds! :D

Its pretty interesting how I came up with the idea for a character who looked like this, you made an art piece and League of Legends made the character entirely! I think there is a dark lord like that!

Woah. This looks very similar to Kassadin from League of Legends, and in the game, you're a summoner.. hah. Awesome work, though.

Glad you appreciate it. I've never played League of Legends before. But now that you've mentioned it, I can see that they do have similar silhouettes and color schemes! :D
