Attention! All of you League of Legends fans who have a dose of creativity and imagination and are ready to show it to the audience, get ready to sharpen your creative skills. Maybe you know how to work in one of the graphic programs, or you have an idea for an artwork that you can show in a basic Paint program; no matter where it is, it is important to turn that thought in your head into a finished product—not interested?
Well, you know that skin you’ve wanted for a long time, but you don’t have enough RP to buy it? How will you react when you hear that Riot rewards his loyal, creative fans with RP if they submit their artwork? This is exactly what you can read about in this article, so keep scrolling.
For all long-time League of Legends players, it has become a tradition that when they need Riot Points, they send their drawings, Riot laughs at them, the drawing may go viral, and they get their little gift in the form of Riot Points. Riot accepts everything – from your favorite champions’ made in most ordinary Paint program to top works in the Photoshop program.
Of course, this is a place where talents from all over the world come to the fore, and even the most ordinary artworks can be found, as for example, caricature of a few mushrooms and Teemo in the lane, or something even more funnier.
In an interview known as Ask Riot which is published a few years ago, Riot stunned his loyal fans by saying they had received more than 24,000 RP Art Tickets in just a few months. Of course, like any loyal company that values its players and their efforts, they had to reward them.
As they themselves stated, since the beginning of this crazy tradition, they have received over 300,000 RP Art submissions; to this day, that number is undoubtedly even higher. They also added that if they gave each player approximately 25 Riot Points, we could easily calculate that Riot shared over 7,500,000 Riot Points from the start. Riot appreciates creative talents, that’s for sure. Do you need more motivation to send your piece of art?

The plan is simple: make your fan artwork in any program, you can in Paint or Photoshop, or choose some other program; that decision is up to you. Then save that work and send it to the Riot support team; you can write them what you want to buy with your artwork and why you need a certain amount of Riot Points. And after that, wait for the feedback and watch how a few Riot Points arrive on your account.
Also, if you follow the official Riot Games website, you are probably already familiar with the contest that Riot has organized for 2021. It was a competition for the best fan artwork, and apart from Riot Points, there were much more valuable prizes, such as the Apple Pencil.
