I think this is the first custom skin to make it into the weekly that wasn’t for a champion…. congratulations! This is an achievement!

Most popular skin of the week is decided according to the stats of most views of the week on the skin. Winner earns a medal! (unless the maximum rank has been achieved or if it is a team project).

New Authors & Legends:

: He joined very recently but has already created many top skins in this short time period. His presentation for his posts is always flawless and the skins are very creative and simply amazing. An evolving creator who has the potential to become the greatest on mapskins. His journey to the top starts here as of today he has been promoted to Author. Congratulations and good luck.

Teasers:

Since this is a custom skin website, and a blog for custom skins, I decided we should have a stripteaser with a custom skin on in at least some of the stripteasers we use as placeholders here. Sooo, enjoy this gif made by Alex13994!

In this section of the weekly, Lexianna will be interviewing a skin creator of Mapskins each week, asking them different questions. Sometimes the questions will be the same as other’s, sometimes there will be questions asked only to those specific creators because I like spicing things up if I can.

Interview with Kingz3!

Lexianna

So, how are you doing today, King?

King

I’m doing well, how about yourself?

Lexianna

I’m pretty damn hungry. Thank you for asking xD

King

You wanna take a break have a snack and get back to the questions?

Lexianna

No, the weekly is life so that comes before things as silly as food. But people aren’t here because they care about me, so let’s get onto answering the first question anyone who has been told one of the interviewing rules will ask should they have kept an eye on you with a question! – long sentence, sheesh. How does it feel, King, to have been one of the rare contributors who achieved the promotion to author in such a short amount of time?!

King

That was a long sentence, so here’s another long one. Well, I was honestly really surprised that what I did was just something to try out ended up having so many people liking it. I remember like, 2 days after the King of Clubs Zed custom skin I looked and I had over 2000 downloads; That really caught me off guard, so I decided to keep going, keep getting better and make some more quality skins.

Lexianna

Yes, it’s quite amazing in fact, and is how you have been one of the rare contributor cases whom get promoted to Author in a very short amount of time since joining mapskins. It is, in fact, the very special reason you we’re chosen to be interviewed. But, how does it feel to be one of those rare cases, king? Can you describe it?

King

Can I describe it? I mean no, not really. As you know I’m very new to Mapskins and have no idea how long it usually takes to become an author. But I certainly didn’t expect to become one so quickly. I guess the feeling is like winning a prize that you didn’t expect to win “Oh wow, that’s awesome! I did something that people really liked!”

Lexianna

Well, I will give you a bit of information for you to take in. I know some people whom it took months for them to become an author. Does that give you a better idea?

King

Oh wow so I guess I must have done something really great to be of such honor so quickly, that’s great!

Lexianna

Enthusiasm. So how long would you say you worked on the King of Clubs skin?

King

The Zed skin did take some time, there were different ideas rolling around in my head. there was one idea I had which was to make the skin based off the colors of Project Zed but then decided to go a different way. I looked through some skins of other champions and then decided to use the color pattern of ‘King Of Clubs Mordekaiser’.. I would say somewhere around 2 days before I settled on the final King of Clubs Zed that is today! :smiley:

Lexianna

Awesome, and that seems to have worked out amazingly for you!

King

It’s worked out very nice, I love seeing all the comments saying how much they love the skin and all the suggestions for what I should do next. I just love it. It’s probably the biggest reason I make the skins

Lexianna

So you’re a king, Pentaking is the king, and parental figure of Mapskins… How would you say things are between you both? Did he help you out?

King

Me and Pentaking are on good terms, yes. After the success of the Zed skin he contacted me to help him take some pictures of his custom skin ‘Prime Time Zed’ of course I agreed…. And those are the pictures that are on the page right now.

Lexianna

Ah. That’s good! – I still remember when I welcomed you to Mapskins y’know.. and you’ve already grown up into am author… Surely, I need some tissues right now. Some of them simply grow up too fast..

King

Hahaha! yes I guess I have grown, thank you.

Lexianna

Already, you are livin’ the life as an author.. It’s as if your childhood has been brutally, mercilessly robbed from you.. But for the better, and in a good way:-)….

King

Well. I wouldn’t put it in those terms but I know what you mean Haha!

Lexianna

Moving onto one of the more common questions… How did you find Mapskins, King?

King

Huh, good question… I think I remember seeing something about custom skins on youtube and I decided to look it up. Then I saw Mapskins and looked up how to use and install the skins. I actually used Mapskins for a while before actually becoming a contributor.

Lexianna

Really? So when did you decide you wanted to make them? How? And was your name decided because you were a fan of the website’s parental figure?

King

It’s an interesting story. I looked through the site and I noticed the lack of ‘quality’ skins for the champions that I used.I then found the Voidgar skin by GGrengar. I liked the skin because it stayed true to the base skin without making it look ugly. And since that skin I exclusively downloaded GGrengar’s skin because his skins were a way for me to test out skins such as ‘Project Fiora’ and ‘Final Boss Veigar’ before buying them. And after a bit of research I found out that I can make my own quality skins. SO I decided to make some skins that I liked, I wasn’t really expecting anyone to download them, I was just doing it for fun. So, now I aim to make quality skins that I like and I make my taste a priority. If I don’t like a skin that I’ve created I would either restart or make a totally new one. because I really believe in quality over quantity

Lexianna

That, in my opinion, is a great belief that I agree with.

King

I’m sure most people do :smiley:

Lexianna

Thank you for the story; I am sure GGrengar will appreciate it as well as our audience!

King

I hope so

Lexianna

So since I know you are one of the people I’ve welcomed to Mapskins from my memory and not because I looked at past weeklies to check, I am going to haunt you with something you never did that was optional in the weekly to people when they join Mapskins. Don’t worry, no one ever does it haha!

King

Oh gosh what didn’t I do?

Lexianna

Do you think you could give some insight on your decision to name yourself ‘King’ on Mapskins/WordPress?

King

Oh well. contrary to what you may think I did not pick the name King because of Pentaking. King has been my nickname in most videogames that I play. I don’t quite remember where I got it but I like it :smiley:

Lexianna

Oh, it wasn’t what I thought or believed, it was just a guess on the spot kind of thing haha!
I wouldn’t make such an assumption.

King

Haha okay

Lexianna

So how long would you say you’ve been playing League of Legends?

King

About nine months if I remember correctly.

Lexianna

Ooh, that’s not too long. I assume you’re level thirty by now?

King

Yes level thirty and silver 5 :smiley:

Lexianna

Nice! You aren’t bronze!
Congratulations on being a little more special.

King

No. Thankfully I’m in a whole new ‘Elohell’

Lexianna

Heh, it’s a bit better. That’s about it for this interview. Is there anything else you would like to say ?
Teaser, fun fact, anything?

King

Well, a lot of people have been requesting me to continue the Golden Card/King of Clubs skin line and, well… I’m working on a new addition right now! :smiley:

Lexianna

Sounds pretty cool! ~ and something I am sure plenty of people look forward to! Anyhow, thats it for this Mapskins weekly – Thank you for your time.

King

Thanks a lot for having me. This was great!
