7th March 2020: The Sounds Of Runeterra

<Old Stuff>

When I started writing songs again in the early 2010s, most of my inspiration came from the computer game League Of Legends, which I was playing a lot of at the time. Here are the songs I completed that are based on the game's setting and characters:

Lyrics:
Never wanted sibling rivalry. Never foresaw such a tragedy. They never paused to explain why, they just ripped her from the sky. Branded fallen for her life, and now it's her purpose to kill again and again at the rift. Shattered wings and immortality. Keeps her hands warm though it's sinfully. Tormented soil, she's breaking waves. She will bind their souls someday. Kinda likes how she behaves, 'Cause now it's her purpose to kill again and again at the rift. Her graceful time was stolen from. All she wanted was some fun. Now exposed, the scars of war. Her world enslaved, it seems so far. Fractured by tyrannic lies. If they'd just seen things through her eyes. Missed the chance for sense to see. She'll never welcome back her kin. When they stripped her chance to soar, they made her seek forbidden lore. Blackest thorns, death on command, in this land of Valoran. Never mind her skin so fair, as all her torment she will share. When it's time she'll spill their blood, because not all angels are good.

Lyrics:
CHOSEN OF THE MOON: Let night steal away the sun. By the moon let fools be frozen. Now your end it has begun. Say goodbye to your kind's chosen. Traitors. Miscreants. Fakers. Ignorants. Heed the night. Embrace the dark. Or a crescent blade will still your heart. Power imbued beneath the silver light bathing the ground. Blind to the truth - denying lunar might will bring you down. You say revere the sun but we are lied to. You say it lights the way instead it blinds you. You can't face the scorn, can't save them all, can't stave your fall. It's time to shatter the dawn. CHOSEN OF THE SUN: Rise. Here comes the sun. Skin warmed by the golden rays that show with daybreak. Stand strong behind shield and blade, and glow, radiate. When first light comes show no fear when the heat of battle calls because here comes the sun, to save everyone. Here comes the sun. The night's on the run. Live life upon mountain high and show devotion. Inspire all to stand up and bestow protection. It's poetic - the chosen will clash and the heretic will know.

Lyrics:
Initiate. Make a dive for the middle. Pick a mark, get involved, give 'em trouble. Move out to the flank, prep 'em for a gank all the lanes. Bring the hurt floor the carry. Make them wish that they weren't adversaries. Time to hard engage. Time to make 'em rage. Gonna bring the pain. Gonna change the game. Team needs aggression. Objectives first. Foes need a lesson. Prepare the burst. So bring perfection. Set up the show with crowd control. Achieve the goal with crowd control. Rock and roll with crowd control. Retaliate. Make 'em pay for their trouble. They think they're gonna bring the pain? Give 'em double. Gonna stamp around. Gonna shut 'em down on the rift. Play it calm, turn to savage. Gotta counter swift prevent all their damage. Block 'em with a wall. And then stun them all. Gonna lock 'em up. Gonna land a hook. Team needs protecting. With crescendo. Skill interrupting. Weakness exposed. Offense deflecting. Now bring them low with crowd control. Now dominate. Serve them up on an arrow. Tidal wave leaves them all feeling sorrow. And with a nether grasp, put em on their assassinate, apprehend, slow with zephyr. Land a bind, terrify, taunt their effort. See hatred in their eyes. When you pulverize. Gonna score an ace. Gonna wreck their face. Team fight injection. It's time to shine. To bring conclusion. Support divine. Such an obsession. The world will know your crowd control.

Lyrics:
Shadows, she's sneaking up on through. Evelynn. Delight, she throws herself into. Her prey's up ahead. Rage will be fed. They're damned. Come now. Embrace the agony. Time to feed. Run now, but it won't help to flee. Hate spike through the leg. Soon they'll be dead. They're damned. It's all over. She loves when they scream on cue. There's no escape when she impales them for her pleasure. There's no escaping and her frenzy brings the end. And she won't stop until they're torn in two. They'll find no solace when she lets her fun begin. They're damned. Scream out. It wakes her beast within. Death begins. Ends now she draws their essence in. Ground painted red. Now they are dead. They're damned.

Back when I used to play guitar, most of the time I played along to professional songs, rather than work on my own stuff. Often, I had to work out how to play the songs I liked, as I found a lot of the tabs I found on the internet were completely crap and sounded nothing like the song they were supposed to be. Some of these tabs, I typed up for posterity, and I've decided to re-upload them here.

These tabs are all downloadable pdf files. Right click the tab(s) of your choice, and select the relevant download option.

10th August 2014: Humble CG Beginnings

In 2012 I dabbled a little bit in a program called Daz Studio. This is my one and only attempt so far to create artwork using it. It is a very basic re-creation of Morgana's splash art from League Of Legends. I'm using this as an indication of my starting skill level for CG style artworks:
