Poppy's Lore by Ririki Poppy's Lore by Ririki
edit: thanks so much for the summoner spotlight! really really makes me happy. <3

To understand this, you have to read her lore:

"While other young yordles would play skip-step and make wreathes out of braided posies, Poppy was earning calluses and grease stains in her father's armor shop. Blomgrun was a well-respected armorsmith, and he named his daughter for the sprightly sounds that accompanied the sparks leaping from his ever-burning forge. He was filled with pride when she was first able to lift his trusty hammer, Whomper.

One day, Blomgrun was commissioned to create a glorious helm for a Demacian general. Word of the charge was leaked to the Noxian High Command, and two of their best spies ambushed Blomgrun's caravan en route. Though Poppy escaped with the helm, she helplessly watched as her father was slain.

Instead of fleeing home, she carried the helm to Demacia alone. When the Demacian general saw the grim determination behind the tears in her eyes, the general requested that the leadership of Bandle City appoint Poppy as the yordle ambassador to Demacia.

Soon after, seeking to crush Noxus with her father's hammer, Poppy volunteered for the League of Legends."

Just a fun fact:

While I was drawing the entire thing, this song was on repeat. Made me depressed but it helped. DX;

Very awesome! :D It made me kinda sad, with the description and all, but still, fits perfectly! And, my first thought included this song: [link] . It kinda fits the comic :D *Be well aware, if you are an emotional person, and have just minor issues with your dad, this song will hurt.*

Oh god, this was so beautiful, I first scrolled through it with my eyes, totally getting caught, I then begin to read the description, found the song and played it while looking at it slowly. Oh god... The picture and the song matches it each other so perfect. Well done, such a magnificent piece of art.

Good job times 1000000000000000000000000000000 =)!

Wonderful music and art to her lore... I loved Poppy the instant I read her background and purchased her on the spot. Wonderful character and wonderful art you picked the perfect character to do this for. Though I seriously hope you consider doing more! Much love and congrats on the spot light! <3

Really good job. But I need to ask something. Is that her father? Cause if it is, shouldn't he be a yordle too? Yordle males are all furry (teemo, kennen, heimer, corki).

Yeah, I know, I didn't know how to draw it without making it awkward (i.e. same height, w/e). Welp. D=

Yeah, I'm planning on making more.

I decided to do Poppy because her lore really makes a great story (tragedy often does). And she's my best friend's favorite character. :D
