Creator Spotlight: Hozure

By gomatgo

Who are you? What got you into creating/crafting?

Heyo, Hozure here. I'm just your average illustrator dude that used to go hard at games but now swapped to painting cute and silly stuff instead. How the whole drawing thing began... I don't recall. I just know it was shortly after I super got into League near the start of season 2, so the splash arts from back then probably had something to do with it (the old Twitch and MF splashes were the most badass things I'd ever seen).

Where are you from? What's it like there?

Vancouver, Canada! Despite what a lot of people say, I don't think it rains enough here.

What got you into League of Legends?

Prior to a friend telling me about League, I didn't know it or mobas existed since I had mainly been playing mmorpgs til then. The characters got me hooked the most. I mean, a top-hat steampunky sniper, a little girl with a teddy bear, pizzafeetswordboots, and a pirate with interesting body hair? Wow.

What League-related project are you most proud of?

The recent Nunu and Willump collaboration was super neato, but I think it has to go to the Bittersweet Lulu fan repaint just for the amount of hours put into it and also because Lulu. That or Cafe Draven.

Who is your favorite champion and why?

I don't like this question. Too many champions to choose from. On one hand you got the yordle trio of Trist, Poppy, and Lulu, on the other you have champions like Gnar and Kindred. Nunu just came out so there's also that. Twitch and Rakan too. If I had to boil down visuals and gameplay, my vote goes to Jhin. He's just too sick.

Who inspires you? Put some links, share some love.

Kienan Lafferty was a huge, huge, HUUUGE inspiration early on. I'm not sure it's legal for so much positivity to be contained in a single body. Krenz Cushart is goals. Ovopack is also goals. Rito. Goals.

What's something people would be surprised to know about you?

Painting's hard, man. It's really hard. It sucks because in your mind you want to improve so much faster than you actually can, and you can't do anything but grind it out slowly. I'm not one of those people who can say they drew their entire lives. On the bright side, if anyone's looking to get into drawing (or any practice for that matter), it can be learned if you put in the hours. It ain't too late, unlike my social life.

What are you currently working on?

Drawing fundamentals and remembering to drink water.
