Making Dark Star Cho’Gath – Behind the Scenes | League of Legends


Alright cool, so draw something fun Whatever you want Big, small, we’ll figure out how to
make it work Just anything Well I mean, not anything My name is Bryan and my Make A Wish was to make a skin
for League of Legends which ended up being Dark Star Cho’Gath The reason I chose Cho’Gath for a skin
was because I’m a bit of a Cho’Gath one trick Just this season, I’ve played exclusively Cho’Gath all
the way to Diamond 5 I kind of want to give him a better run
cycle, you know what I mean? Yeah, he’s kind of clunky Yeah, it’s looking.. Bryan was connected to us through Make
A Wish Make A Wish is a non-profit
organization that works to fulfill the wishes of kids who are
facing a critical illness Our relationship with Make A Wish is
that they reach out to us whenever they
receive a request related to League of Legends or Riot
Games This is the new champion, he’s gonna be
a blacksmith He can make weapons in lane, doesn’t
even have to go back to shop The original goal per Bryan’s request was just to make him a custom skin that
he could use It would be a skin that was like local
to his client we thought that that would be a really
nice souvenir of his visit here and it would give him something for his
champion that he had designed Yeah, well if you have any cool ideas
or if you wanna act something out Feel free, you know what I mean Prior to the visit, I worked with Riot
by kinda sending a stream of emails about like the actual development of
the skin Like possible themes, we did a little
bit of brainstorming and then like, I just really liked the
theme of space and stuff And ultimately I decided on proceeding
with Dark Star as the skin for him One cool part of coming up with ideas
for the skin I met with one of the animators and
then I kinda like motioned out how I wanted everything to
look so I think that ultimately translated to like some of the animations and like
the back animation … black hole to come out of the
ground so say he digs, he opens up He roars and then like as he’s roaring
like stuff’s coming out Yeah and then it just like sucks him in? Somewhere in like the exchange of
emails before the visit I think somewhere I mentioned like oh yeah, I’m a pretty big like band and
orchestra player So they were like oh wow we have an in
house music theme So it’d be really cool if you could
like bring your stuff and then we can like play a few
compositions, jam out Since the skins guys are basically
putting together a skin for you we thought we would do like a pseudo
log in to go along with the skin So we’re gonna record some stuff today That was the first time I saw the music
so I actually was sight reading it there So what happened was, first they had me
play this music It was like pretty easy so then they
brought out like a second version That was like more difficult, they
wanted to test me first! And I was like, oh okay I think that would’ve been a take, man That’s uh I gotta say, I gotta say we’re pretty
impressed Playing the Dark Star music was really
quite cool and it was kinda challenging but I
think we got it in the end It was a really fun experience After Bryan left, we started showing
the skin around to Rioters, talking about Bryan’s visit, talking
about the Make A Wish program and we got really excited to see how
many Rioters become not only inspired by the skin itself, but by the fact
that Bryan designed this skin with us the idea of actually making the skin
for Bryan but also for all players in honor of
Bryan just became the main goal So what we decided to do next steps
were to make the skin and to take all the proceeds from the
skin and donate them to charities on his behalf I think it’s really rewarding to see
Dark Star Cho’Gath come out because I’ve been kinda following it
since we were first just like coming up with the very bare designs Seeing it become a real thing feels so
much more rewarding Seeing my vision come to life is like,
wow, I helped make this skin! And I hope that players out there enjoy
this skin And have as much fun with it as I will

    Never ever donate to a charity program or organization, if they dont put their balance sheet books online on their website.
    They are not legit, the money sinks in a deep black hole and might goes in their own pocket.

    if i would be there cuz of the "The Make-A-Wish Foundation", i would wish for a balanced game/league of legends and a league of legends that is happy about people finding out their own stratigies with their champs to win the game.

    This skin is amazing, however I hope you guys put that War Drake Cho'Gath on the backburner. That has some awesome potential. Especially as a skin line with Warwick, Nocturne, Anivia and maybe like Kha'zix or Rek'Sai. Food for thought, would be really cool.
