You might be asking yourself, what in the world is "Feeney Art"? Well, we didn't really know what it was until the folks at League of Legends let us in on one of their best-kept traditions.
Feeney Art is fun doodles of champions and their splash art while they are considered work in progress.
We previously did an article about what Feeney art is and had it described as the following:
"This all started in 2012 with Senior game designer Brian "FeralPony" Feeney. He created them after accidentally releasing incomplete splash art. He wanted to make sure people knew when something was finished and when it wasn't. "I wanted to make something that was super sh***y, so people would never accidentally ship it. There would be no question whether or not it’s finished artwork," he said. ", "I try to put a little bit of time into each to try to make them amusing and capture the vibe of the character."
The next two installments in the Feeney art collection include Rakan and Xayah. "Now that they're out we can also share the Feeney art for Rakan and Xayah for anyone interested, which was what we see loading into playtests for many months before the final splash art was done," said Meddler, League of Legends Lead Gameplay Designer. "As with the final splash art for duo the Feeney art was also made as one piece, then cut in half with that intent it would be shown side by side. That had the added little benefit of being a fun way to test that some code changes to ensure Xayah and Rakan were positioned appropriately on the loading screen worked as intended too."

Feeney art is certainly interesting, to say the least. While the art does look childish, it also looks like a stroke of genius as not even third grade me could make these.
