Grumpy Monkey's Avatar

Posted on at 6:51 AM by Moobeat
An easy to see image created by Highskore, a helpful redditor. The green is the mysterious figure mentioned below.

There is a new Rioter lurking the general forums and his name is Grumpy Monkey. He is a Senior Character Artist and he, if you take a gander at his art portfolio, does some impressive work. This is all in good, but what really makes him interesting is his forum icon - a small, ghost like figure from the Battle Bunny Riven splash art. This mysterious figure has made a ripple in the pond that is the League of Legends world.

 The real question is, is he trolling us or giving us a small peak into some future piece of content? When confronted about his icon, GM has this to say ( in two seperate posts )

All will be revealed Soon™
[ source two ]  
It's from Battle Bunny Riven Splash. If you look hard you will see some familiar faces....and one not so familiar face, least not yet... I've said too much.
- Grumpy Monkey, Senior Character Artist, via the official forums.





What could this ghosty figure be? Maybe a new champion? Seems doubtful would let a Rioter use an "easter egg" of a new champion as their forum icon. Maybe a new minion or jungle mob? While RiotNome is working on TT, it seems odd for such an "unpopluar mode" to get that sort of work put into it without major changes . Perhaps it is a new skin for one of our already released champions? This isn't too far of a stretch given that Tyrant Swain was essentially spoiled by the same splash art. Heck, it might not even be anything at all! Looks like we are going to wait to find out.

  3. it seems like it would be a new champ, because all the rest are champions, and if it was, it would probably be from noxus as well.

  5. Do you think the Ryze and Nidalee models in Grumpy Monkey's art portfolio are a hint to an incoming model remake? ;)

    Even if they haven't scheduled one yet, perhaps this is what they will look like when the time comes! Looks super sexy imho.

  6. perhaps it is "Teek" or "Hexmage" as alluded in the 6-8 PBE files and or maybe the new stealth champ Riot has been claiming to be coming Soon™??

    1. I could see it being Teek since the Teek files hint at stealth and what is stealthier than a ghost, but hexmage is doubtful, nothing hextech about a ghost (unless its hexmage as in hexes)

      We will probably hear something about it next week, since morello is posting that thread about monsters and stuff, so we are bound to get a hint about it.

  9. Definitely Teek. Especially after what's been released from the PBE files. Ghost - Stealth. Obvious much?
