Mecha Rumble Go! by sunnykoda Mecha Rumble Go! by sunnykoda
Rumble is my favourite League champion. He is so much fun to play and brings some unique and exciting action. To commemorate tonight's nerf I'm posting this skin concept. Rumble on!

So what if he came across a junk yard that looked more like my box of leftover kit pieces? Tristy would look so cool with the best bits of mecha history! I just looked at my beloved Rumble and thought 'what would be the best skin I can possibly imagine for this dude?' and this is the result.

EDIT:

SUPER GALAXY RUMBLE!

I got to see this skin in it's early stages when I first went to Riot and, like RiotScarizard, I pushed the use of Gurren Lagann drills and quotes (and the scrap shield = AT Field from Evangelion) but the concept is by the super awesome Larry Ray: the-bravo-ray.deviantart.com/a… and the product of the coolest art team in za warudo. WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

So when you're drilling to the heavens don't forget that Riot do indeed love their fans XD

The League wiki credits the Gurren Lagann skin to your fanart. Not sure if that's true or not, but thank you!

It's not! There's always been a bunch of 'Mecha Rumble' fan concepts floating around and as far as I know there was a pile used as inspiration but I've got a link to the concept by Larry Ray in the description. He is the man XD

Glad this has been made into reality :D BTW, this skin isn't on it's early stages, the concept you linked is the final concept of it and the skin IS NOW ON THE PBE! and is looking pretty much finished. 90% that we'll see it in the next patch! :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYE_aH… Here's a preview of the official skin.

I believe when they started work on it there were some Rioters who hadn't even seen my concept! There are certainly a few concepts people have done and I believe this skin comes from the dreams of every Rumble fan.

Much as I would love to see this skin come to fruition, I doubt it would simply because it clashes with the core concept of rumble: Trist (his bot) is a piece of crap he build himself that is suppose to break randomly, etc if you ever read his champion judgement (from the days of old).
Reply
:iconsunnykoda:
sunnykoda Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah that's true but he has one made from a pirate ship and another from bamboo and coconuts. The idea here is that Rumble built this version of Tristy from bits of model kits - Warhammer, Gundam, Gurren Lagann etc.

Even though he makes do with his junkyard scraps, given the chance Rumble can build anything! He might not have the experience and skill of Heimerdinger but he makes up for it with guts!

Ah! Correct me if I'm wrong here: What you are saying is that in the future this skin would essentially take place in, the bits of "rubbish" essentially lying about that he would have to work with would be scrapped Mech armors (in a unified story-line) from, for example, a totaled Evangelion, pieces of Spike's ship from Cowboy bebop, etc.

 

If I have this correct, might I suggest making it look a bit less cohesive then. If you want your art to tell that story, I suggest you make the different parts look as though they have been indeed patch-worked together, perhaps by using less of a unified color theme, or giving each limb a different art direction or feel in such a way that it comes across as "this is the leg from Voltron"/"This back piece is from Gundam"/ etc etc.

 

As stands, it gives that feeling across when it comes to the weapons, but mecha are also known to have mismatched arms commonly in order to give weapon diversity to the pilots.

 

(This is, of course, nothing more than an interpretation and suggestion, meant to give insight and perhaps some artistic inspiration to better relay the vision. I always feel the story should be conveyed through the piece itself, and I only want to help you if that was the intent. I hope I did not offend in any way, you have my upmost respect and admiration with your art.)

Right on! I think you're correct in that Rumble's mech being scratch-built is important to his identity. But when designing skins you also need to keep in mind that the end result will be a living breathing asset and ultimately something that people will want to have. While drawing inspiration from kit-bashing plastic/lead models the design needs general appeal and a unique theme that will make it stand out from the base skin. Ultimately, while many players may appreciate references, a unified style, palette and theme are vital for a design and take precedent over the back-story. If there is demand for sci fi skins in LoL or a Rumble skin with a shiny new Tristy, then that is what I will try and deliver.

I find that skins tend to fall into one of three categories: Lore skins that realise either a champions past or future (or occasionally alternate future), 'Cool' skins that are so exciting they just have to exist and Joke/Holiday skins which can be just about anything. eg. Redeemed Riven, Battlecast Vel'Koz and Curling Veigar respectively. As you'd expect the Lore skins need to stay quite true to the champion and their story, the 'Cool' skins less so and the 'Joke' skins can really break the rules.

Ah, I see your point. Thanks for giving me that insight into your process ^_^ I hope there is a call for this type of skin, because I think a mecha rumble would, indeed, be quite cool. :)
