Pre corruption Varus by Pedro-Ferreira Pre corruption Varus by Pedro-Ferreira
From League of Legends.

Read his lore:

''For his incomparable skill with the bow and his unquestioned sense of honor, Varus was chosen to be the warden of a sacred Ionian temple. The temple was built to contain an ancient pit of corruption so vile that Ionian Elders feared it could envelop the island in darkness. Varus prided himself on his position, as only the most exceptional Ionian warriors were selected for the role. He lived with his family in a nearby village and led a quiet life of disciplined routine until the day the forces of Noxus invaded Ionia. Their shock troops left nothing but death and desolation in their wake, and the temple lay in their path. Varus was forced to make a decision. He was bound by honor to stay and defend the temple, but without him the village's few inhabitants could offer little resistance against the oncoming war machine. Gravely, he chose to fulfill his duty as a warden. The corruption could not be allowed to escape.
His arrows sundered the troops who tried to wrest the temple from him that day. However, when he returned to his village, he found that it had been reduced to a smoldering graveyard. Remorse at the sight of his slain family gave way to overwhelming regret and then to seething hatred. He swore to slaughter every Noxian invader, but first he needed to become stronger. He turned to that which he had sacrificed everything to protect. The pit of corruption would consume him wholly, as a flame devours a wick, but its abominable power would burn within him until he was lost. This was a path from which there could be no return. With grim resolve, he condemned himself to the black flames, feeling malevolent energy bond to his skin... and with it, the promise of ruin. He left, seeking the blood of all Noxians involved with the invasion, a grisly task that eventually led him to the invasion's most infamous perpetrators in the League of Legends.''

Im not too happy with the art, but I thought I could share it anyway.

Varus fan myself, and I really enjoy this piece. A fully corrupted Varus would be awesome to see, well done!

Hahaha, send me your email in a note, and I will send you this unfinished painting I started after this.

This piece looks AWESOME. If I didn't know better it's official.

I'm a new player to LoL, and Varus is my first main, so don't mind if I go favourite this and try to stick it on my wallpaper.

Thanks a lot!

Yea, Varus is my favourite champion too. Go for it!

I really like this, but I think he'd be black-brown haired before the corruption. Still an awesome picture!

Yeah, I painted this before the Arclight Varus was designed.

Sorry for the late response, but I didn't even have Arclight in mind when I wrote that comment. I thought he'd have brown hair since Ionia is pretty much Japan, and the other Ionian champions are majority brown/black haired.

All of you art really amazes me. I'm thoroughly impressed by the style you have. You should design a skin for a champion you like - I wouldn't be surprised if it were spotlighted or even made into a real one! (=

I see... I haven't thought about that brown hair thing, it really makes sense.

Thanks a lot, i really appreciate it. And also thanks for the watch.
