Night Angel Morgana by Exlorian Night Angel Morgana by Exlorian
After having so much fun creating my first League of Legends character rendition, Miss Fortune, I was inspired to immediately make another. I don't think this one turned out as smashing as the first, but I had just as much fun creating it. The outfit really seemed to suit her, though no Morgana skin comes close to sporting something like it. So, I made up a new title for this one after I had completed the image; Night Angel.. it seemed fitting. Hope you enjoy!

Due to so many comments on the costume I want to give special credit to powerage from Renderosity.com www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/in… (I edited it in Photoshop.)

Lore: There is a world far away populated by graceful and beautiful winged beings gifted with immortality, where an ancient conflict still rages. Like so many conflicts, this war split families. One side proclaimed themselves as beings of perfect order and justice, fighting to unite the world under their law and strong central governance. Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded fallen. Morgana was not innocent, having plumbed forgotten ways to gather forbidden might to become a powerful mistress of the black arts. This goal was driven by her obsession to defeat the general of the opposition's army - her sister, Kayle.

While the two were in fact birth-sisters, Kayle struck the first blow by disowning any filial connection when Morgana refused to join her cause. Eventually, Morgana grew in power enough to not only reach, but challenge Kayle. As the time approached when the two would meet in what could be their final conflict, Morgana was suddenly summoned to Valoran. At first, Morgana made a deal with the League's summoners to fight in exchange for greater power. With the advent of Kayle into the League, Morgana now willingly fights in the League of Legends for the privilege of being able to destroy her sister again, and again, and again. She lies in wait for the day the bonds of the Institute of War no longer hold her, and on that day she plans to destroy Kayle once and for all and return home a hero.

They're not hairs, they're just really stringy feathers. It's fantasy.. use your imagination.

The wings are actually made up of about 20 hair props. So you're spot-on there. I don't make my own 3D models/props from scratch, I'm just the art director so-to-speak. I do however choose, layout, pose, and render them. The character that she's based off of has a similar look with her feathers, so I used what I have that I thought would work well to mimic their appearance. I have a wings prop with actual feathers, but this wouldn't be Morgana if I used it. ;)

It's a good idea for the character, looks better than usual. Skin would be good with that style.

Thanks! Using high contrast dark and lights is my favorite technique.. you'll probably see a lot of it in my work.

Gota give credit to powerage for the outfit [link] though did some editing to it in PS.

Katarina is definitely doable.. I'll put it on my list. Riven might be next though, which was actually requested before I made Morgana. Keep an eye out. :)
