Katarina - Gangplank's Wench by Melgramn Katarina - Gangplank's Wench by Melgramn
EDIT: Riot has made the Swashbuckler Katarina skin into an official skin called "Bilgewater Katarina." :)

I did this for :iconcgramnaes: and his reskin of Katarina from League of Legends. He made her into a pirate! :D Hurrah!

For those of you who don't know, LoL is a free to play PvP game, and can be fun when you're playing with the right people.

This took a while, and I probably didn't get to do everything I wanted with it, like with everything, but I'm satisfied enough. It's finished! @_@ Unless anyone has any suggestions. >_>;

You can find the retextured skin here:

or

You can also find the picture of the texture (as well as the same links) here:

Thanks!

Katarina belongs to the League of Legends people (Riot). The art is mine and the concept belongs to cgramnaes.

But my boyfriend plays gangplank so I guess that works too :D

you should enter this in the summoner showcase. if you dont know how just type in summoner showcase on google or just look for one episode in there website. it always says how to hand it in at the end.

No, thanks. I'm glad you like it, but it's old and I don't really like it myself (which is why it's in my scraps). Besides, the skin for this was already made into an official skin, so plenty of people have already seen it. :)

Thanks, but this is now considerably old and not quite indicative of what I do now. I don't currently have a setup for commissions right now, sorry. Perhaps in the future. :)

Very nice so-called Op-atarina xd One of the best champs in LoL. I would love to see Katarina + Garen in your drawing style ;P She has very nice mouth that gives her a sexy look together with the eyepatch and hair.

Wow, she carries many sharp things. Nice coloring with the orange-red-gold pallet and then the blades stand out in dull grey. Nice body proportions, realistic but very fluid, long, and lean.
I don't know the original character but she actually reminds me of a character I had Yasmine Putri do for me, down to the long dark hair and eye scar (please observe [link]). That character was entirely off the top of my head... but no doubt I've seen several similar.
Your submittions aren't that often so I'll consider myself lucky that one of them caught my eye as it passed by today...

Thank you for the comment. I rarely post because I rarely finish anything to my satisfactory. Even a great deal of what I do show on here isn't as good as I would have liked, but sometimes I've just got to go for it. These that have been submitted for my husband's skins in particular needed to just have an end to them, just for the sake of meeting his releases.

Many characters, both male and female, are portrayed with facial scars and a variety of hair styles. It's tough to make anything truly "unique" in that sense. It always comes down to every little bit that makes them who they are. :) But it's nice to see similar ideas that expand our own and give us inspiration.

If you want to know where this character comes from (it's not mine--just my rendition of her), check out this site: [link]

As to your character and the lovely picture done for you, I think it's quite nice. I've always been a fan of the marker look. I also enjoy when characters are given shapely features (her nose in this case). The armor is nice, as well, and reminds me of many different things. :D

Thank you again for the comments. I just feel a little disappointed when I come back and look at this, so it's always surprising when I see others still taking notice. ^_^;
