The weekly bunny is hiding from me again😦 this is exactly what I was talking about in the interview today!

Oh…did I forget to mention Pentaqueen is an author now?😉

Newest Author: Pentaqueen

Pentaqueen has been creating skins for a very long time now under the name of PentaKing because she was too shy to publish her own work. Ever since First blood Soraka, she was bound for success in Mapskins. PentaKing decided to transfer all her work to her own wordpress account very recently (https://mapskins.com/author/pentaqueen/) so she has the opportunity to grow on her own to one day become a legend because she most certainly has the potential to do so. Yurixy is a fan of her work and thus decided to promote her to Author as soon as the skins had been transferred to her own account. This is where the journey starts to become the very best around and cement her legacy in the hall of fame as a Legend. Congratulations pentaqueen for becoming an Author on Mapskins.

Standing for next Legends:

1. Yoru
2. MuvLuv
3. MrBrokoli
4. Sislex
5. Sardonyx

These are the top Authors for the previous month. All of these Authors will be Legend the next month. The number 1 Legend will get a Featured section on the Hall of Fame page for the entire month and a reward. You got 8 days as of today to become popular enough to become number 1.

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 …Pentaqueen!

Lexianna 

Hello Pentaqueen and welcome to the mapskins weekly interview that also mentions somewhere in it that you’re a new author!…If it doesn’t I’ll just grab my scissors.

PentaQueen

Hello.

Lexianna

So how crazy are you today?

PentaQueen

Pretty fine thanks. :upside_down:

Lexianna 

Really? Not crazy? Then today must be an absolutely grand day! …We aren’t here to talk about your day. (Am I the only one who sees her smiling upside down? D:)

PentaQueen

Today is a good day.
:smile:
So what are we going to talk about?

Lexianna 

That’s too much discussion over today.
From what I hear, you’ve been learning how to model, haven’t you?

PentaQueen

Yes. I started to learn modelling maybe.. half a year ago? Took me a long time till I finally decided (100% my own will, right Pentaking? :sweat_smile: ) to release one of my remodels.

Lexianna 

Yes, there wasn’t a gun involved and if there was we keep that on the shady side of business that every website has deep down.
Right, Pentaqueen?..Callin’ out to ya in the audience, Yurixy!

PentaQueen

Shhht. Don’t tell anyone!
:smile:

Lexianna 

Right right we don’t want our stale memes revealed, that’d simply ruin our reputation

PentaQueen

The truth is.. I never actually am quite satisfied with my work. Thats why it sometimes takes too long to release things.

Lexianna 

Thats what we call a perfectionist, isn’t it?
We here at mapskins do our best to… encourage…authors to post things, and that wonderful, enthusiastic encouragement was exactly what got you to post these things, right Pentaqueen..?

PentaQueen

“I cannot be perfect. I must be perfection!” Well.. yeh only one problem. Id never really release anything if I chased perfection. :smile: So.. Im getting deadlines.. and my fans can play my skins! Some of them.
But no worries! Ill work on releasing my work more frequently!
More skins!
Yaay!

Lexianna 

:smile:
So about your Pentaqueen skin…have you ever considered modeling on a crown to the character since you’ve been learning how to model for half a year now..?

PentaQueen

You mean my Pentaqueen riven? I will together with particles update. But I have some other skins in queue so can’t really say when exactly. All at the right time!

Lexianna 

Yes yes. With due time.
All comes with time, much like a banana

PentaQueen

So deep. :D…
Anyways. Pentaqueen series first skin never actually got published. But I’m working on it.

Lexianna 

Do your fans ever bring up comments regarding you being the queen of Mapskin’s parental figure, Pentaking?

PentaQueen

Umm.. Im not really sure. I was always kind of trying to hide in Pentakings shadow. Releasing skins under his name. Trying not to be seen…
Fan comments to my work would make me feel so shy that I’d forget what was in them the second I read them. ^^

Lexianna 

Blushy blushy?

PentaQueen

Well. Now I am an author.
I think I cant hide behind Pentaking anymore! Help! Someone!!

Lexianna 

Someone restrain her or something!

-1 Pentaqueen caught in a Poke-E-Ball later…-

Lexianna 

In any case, is it this same shyness that keeps you away from conversations in Mapskins?
Or some form of insecurity?

PentaQueen

Its still fresh for me and I feel shy about actually being an author myself. o.O I still canlt believe my work would be considered good and appreciated enough to earn me such title.
Lexiii
hides behinds closest wall

Lexianna 

And so the audience has their answer.

PentaQueen

:smile: I mean. I really enjoy talking to other people…and helping them out. Especially that. Just..I’m not exactly an extrovert, I guess.

Lexianna 

It’s okay, not everyone is. My bunny for example sometimes hides from the weekly out of shyness.

PentaQueen

Cant blame him.

Lexianna 

Will you be attempting any full remodels anytime soon, though?

PentaQueen

You mean like.. creating my own model out of 0?
or?

Lexianna 

Yes, the question least likely to get an answer of “yes”.

PentaQueen

No.
I wonder what you mean by that though or what you’ll accept because my Sakura Ahri is somewhat closest to a full remodel I can do. Using 3 models. Editing them to fit.
I certainly plan on doing more and improving my modelling skill as well.
Soon await 2 adc remodels and 1 adc re-texture :stuck_out_tongue:
Cant spoil which ones. ^^

Lexianna 

Oooooohh! :smile: and yes, that was one of the correct interpretations for what I meant or that I was accepting.
So which skins of the ones you’ve posted have you loved the most?
Personal opinion, of course.

PentaQueen

Well, the one I personally loved the most was my very first skin, First Blood Soraka, including the the creation of her. I literally had 0 experience with photoshop or whatsoever.. So it was very exciting for me!
I fell in love with creating custom skins through her creation. Thank you Pentaking for motivating me. ^^
To be honest I feel great satisfaction about creating Sakura Ahri as well… Since its the first time I actually modeled something like that..

Lexianna 

So you enjoy First Blood Soraka’s concept more, but you loved the creation of Sakura Ahri?

PentaQueen

No. Not really. I have put biggest part of my heart into these two out of all my released skins. But I loved creation of all my skins.
Despite Pentaqueen Riven getting more views, if its my personal taste you ask for.. Sakura Ahri is the one I find the most beautiful.
They are my babies!! ^^
Don’t make me choose :smile:
I love them all equally. :heart:

Lexianna 

That’s very lovely.

PentaQueen

Aw. Thanks
I just.. enjoy creating skins. So sorry for not being so clear with my answer. Its not easy to say.

Lexianna 

I’m not the one you’ll be begging for forgiveness to. That’ll be the audience. :smile:

PentaQueen

Oops.
^^
So is there anything else audience would be interested in?

Lexianna 

Let’s see….we won’t be covering your love life for the most part (in my opinion) just yet, so the next question they might be interested in is…
How long did it take Pentaking to…‘encourage’.. you into making stuff for Mapskins?

PentaQueen

:smile: lol… Well.. I’ve kinda always been there watching what hes doing. Seeing his and other peoples work. He’d ask several times if I feel like creating something as well. That I could do anything I wanted to… But I never really dared.

Lexianna 

Your mind conjured sharks in the swimming pool that was Mapskins.

PentaQueen

Yeah..Then one day he asked me to make a nice Soraka skin. And… it was the biggest mistake of his life to trust me that I’d actually create a NICE Soraka skin. :sweat_smile:

Lexianna 

I know right? Jesus christ, I hate to bring religion into the weekly, but what was he thinking? (EDIT: Just to be clear for some special snowflakes out there for just this one time for this one particular part… audience, keep in mind I’m joking and she’s aware.)

PentaQueen

Don’t ask me..

Lexianna 

Even my jaw dropped at that.

PentaQueen

Well.. What can I say?
I know its very shocking … But that is the true face of Soraka. I’m sorry!

Lexianna 

You could say…that was the first time her image was killed… in a Mapskins way. (:
Get it?

PentaQueen

..Or that :smile:

Lexianna 

First Blood Soraka….First murder of the game…
Yeah, I’ll show myself out now. Actually, I own this place little ‘room’, you can get out when you feel like it.

PentaQueen

I mean… shes just a “cancer” champ.. I mean she could give allies mana..
she heals them..
or minions so enemy adc cant last hit..
she has bannanas of doom.
Shell silence you so you cant scream…

Lexianna 

You can’t actually heal those minions anymore, but I remember I used to make a minion tank tower forever, not just deny last hits.
Just to be a massive troll in bot lane.

PentaQueen

Hearing that..actually broke my heart. But at least you don’t heal a minion instead of an ally. xD

Lexianna 

The worst part is that Soraka could still get kills..
Remember when I got first blood with her using your custom skin in that game we played together? :smile:

PentaQueen

:smile: :smile: :smile:
To be honest… You shouldn’t be allowed to play any other Soraka skins. They just don’t suit you. x)

Lexianna 

You got that right, I’m sadistic af; don’t worry boo, I’ll keep using that first blood soraka so long as it works. :smile:
from time to time, of course.

PentaQuee

I find it hard imagine you being the nice support like all these Nami players. Healing, being a very nice support at the backline, warding river and objectives. Having her locket and all spells ready to save the lives of your teammates.. Ah, I wish I had such a support..

Lexianna 

Whew, you clearly still haven’t seen my Nami support…

PentaQueen

Oh please no! :smile:

Lexianna 

I’ve taken more than enough kills from the back lines by timing the waves just right and bouncing it off someone to steal their kill when I should be out of range…. ;D

The waters of the night mixed with the seas high in the realm known as heaven strike again with Luden’s Echo supporting their weight.

PentaQueen

You are the support giving me nightmares…. I swear! :smile:
Hm. Lets play sometime.

Lexianna 

We should, this interview has convinced me of this: I’ll keep you up at night like I do Jace, the audio girl for the mapskins weekly videos, leaving you restless during the day while I laugh sadistically in the background as you do your daily activities.
Before we conclude
There is one more question I think the audience would like to hear
How did you and Pentaking meet?

PentaQueen

To be completely honest… We met one evening…
It was Valentines day….
I was Katarina mid and he was Yi bot.

Lexianna 

Of course he does that shit.
Thats how I know you’re not lying about this tale.
He’s playing Yi bot.
bot.

Pentaqueen

We used to play Yi and Annie bot a lot :smile: That one time is still recorded on his channel I believe.
Its so much fun. ^^ Though trust me… He actually mastered master Yi with time.. Or at least he doesn’t go Randuins first item. :wink:

(For those who want to see the annie master yi bot lane game:)

Lexianna 

So that is how you both met? Are you certain you don’t want to add anymore details? Like what made you both want to get to know eachother from that game?

PentaQueen

Im not sure how we started to talk.. Think I was making sure he doesn’t feel bad for playing bad…and was trying to help him out since he was a new player unlike me ^^. I added him after that game. We’d talk whenever I went online. It took us almost year till we started to grow really close to eachother. I’d say mainly because I wasn’t really online for a long time… Eventually we helplessly fell for each other and decided to meet up.

Lexianna 

Aww, how nice.
Alright, is there anything else you’d like to say in the interview?

PentaQueenToday at 12:05 AM

Thank you everyone for your support. I hope I can live up to being an author. :heart:
Even one single view and download makes my work worth…and I got so much more of them. o.O

Lexianna 

See, people love you. Deep down.
They just hide it cause you’re taken. Obviously. Obviously.
